Evora 400 - alpine head unit I-pod malfunction

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Has anyone experienced a sudden i-pod malfunction on their alpine INE - W990BT head unit. Symptoms are with the I-pod plugged in  and I-pod selected the message on the head unit screen reads "I-pod Disconnecting" and doesn't play. I've tried the I-pod in another car and it works fine.

Any ideas?

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

I've had the unit not detect or drop out my USB several times. Usually unplugging it and plugging back in solves it.

It's an Old i-pod nano. It's ancient but was working ok until last night. I've tried unplugging and plugging again but it still doesn't work.

Try doing a hard reboot on the iPod. My iPod classic does this occasionally. Does it on both my cars so it's not specific to the 400.

No idea why but giving it a reboot fixes it.

Possibly worth updating firmware on the unit. Lotus ship them with ancient firmware.

Cheers guys.

The iPod connectivity is working again. I started the car up, the head unit screen turned blue for about 5 seconds and when it rebooted, the iPod started working. it seems to have reset itself. Very strange but all back to normal now.

CocoPops is right though I need to upgrade the iPod.?

Rather than spend £hundreds on an ipod we've just got one of these in each car. Pull them out every now and again to add any new music then plug them back in and forget them:
