Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

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 :)

Not sure what regicide is but it sounds nasty.

Which head unit are you talking about ?

 

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

 

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

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???

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

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!).

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 :(
