Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Not sure what regicide is but it sounds nasty.

Which head unit are you talking about ?

Access to the micro SD slot on the Alpine 920r is behind the removable button panel on the left

It is pretty clearly shown in the manual, the links to which I gave you in this thread :)

Regicide is the deliberate killing of a reigning King. Think Charles 1st in England and James 1st in Scotland. I guess the lesson is if you are going to be King, don't be the first King with your name!  :0

It might not work through the SD card, I know on my 2011 tech pack car there was a USB cable in the passenger foot well right up behind the glovebox, I think thats possibly used for updates.

I have a USB port in the glove box but it doesn't work when I follow the instructions to extract the units data.

Confusion..the instructions state a 'micro sd' card is needed (bottom in the inage) by it is too small???

The top sd card (size unknown) does fit and is 8gb as recommended BUT there is no option to 'collect information' in the menu when you get to the correct place???

Have you done the application update?

I have the application on my laptop and when I insert the card (via sub stick) it states no device (alpine) can be found. So I assume i would need to get the nav info on the sd card from the alpine unit first, then plug in to computer for latest updates and then back in to alpine unit?

Yes, download the "device" to the SD card from the Alpine unit then put it into the computer and upgrade - otherwise the app does not know you have an Alpine unit nor which model etc....

I think (can't remember exactly) you may need to copy the application update on to the SD card and apply it to the unit first to be able to collect the device information. Hence the warning on the link I gave you above

Clicking on the arrow by the warning on the link above gives you these instructions

Don't forget to do a back up once you have collected the device information. You can do it on the same SD card

Thanks chaps. No dice, give up! 

- Tried various sd cards of various capacities 

- Tried some after formatting 

- Tried saving the zip folder suggests above and inserting sd card

Wonder if the 2nd owner aspect makes a difference although can't see why it should. The first stages worked ok for me, (i.e. application update, gathering device information and back up), will be attempting map update in the spring.

Maybe take it to a local Alpine dealer??

The bottom card is definitely the one you want - the top is a Sony 'M2' card, which certainly won't work even if it fits. You need to push the card in far enough enough that it latches, in case there is something wrong with your slot, here's a video of me inserting a card into mine, after which it was detected by the unit:

 

(Apologies for the heavy breathing!).

Ta, worked out it was the bottom of the two pretty quickly. Sadly there was a card jammed in the unit which I had to remove and I am now thinking (hoping not) it may have damaged the pins/connectors.

Updated the maps on mine this evening, no problems, it took just over an hour to download on to the SD card and upload to the Alpine 920r

Did you get a free map update, or pay for the latest ones from alpine.naviextras.com ?

I tried the map update process as mine is using NavTeq maps from 2011.Q3 apparently,

as I was led to believe a newly registered INE-W920R would be entitled to a free update, but haven't found an option to get that :(
