    Guide IGO upgrade on Alpine NVE-M300P

    "The NVE-M300P navigation module provides a variety of update possiblities." - Alpine

    The device is a standard windows ce 5 device, with 400x234 resolution and 128mb ram. By default, it's contains alpine specific igo build (AlpineNavi.exe), based on iGO8 8.3.2.173857.

    Normally, you can't access the files, and operating system, because the windows ce modded, and load the alpine ui instead of the desktop. To modify this, you need a modified update [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which owerride this functionality.

    Copy the M3 and WINCE folder to root of your pendrive, and start the device when usb drive attached. The script closes the igo8 and liteon launcher, and start an explorer (windows using explorer.exe to create initial desktop).

    When windows ce accessed, you need to do some modifications. First of all, enable explorer, to see hidden and system files (view - options - remove all checkboxes).

    At this point i recommend to create a full backup with explorer (edit copy/paste ) from the following folders:
    - FlashDrive/Alpine
    - windows

    The liteon launcher located in the windows folder, the file name is: Mainpage.exe. The simplest way to disable liteon launcher copy explorer.exe to somewhere, rename it to Mainpage.exe, and overwrite the original Mainpage.exe with the new one. After you doing that, the device always boot to windows ce5 instead of launcher. You can modify the related registry settings too (but it's more complicated).

    You have 2 options:
    1. use igo from internal flashdrive ("FlashDrive")
    2. use igo from external usb drive ("USB Drive")

    You don't need to use any special igo build, every igo version is supported (don't forget 400x234 resolution must be supported). I prefer the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] version. It's working with latest [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Because the device using special folders, and resolution, i do some modifications to sys.txt file:

    [folders]
    sdcardpath="FlashDrive"
    app="%SDCARD%/iGO8"

    [rawdisplay]
    highres=0
    screen_x=400
    screen_y=234


    The full sys.txt file available here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    After the installation, you need to detect the gps and tmc devices in settings (don't forget to set gps baud to 57600), and everything worked fine. If you would like, to start igo automatically, restore the original Mainpage.exe file.

    Hello, I was able to upgrade my NVE-M301 to the latest IGO 8.3.5 with the latest maps. Everything work except the navigation reboots every time you start the engine. What I did is plug the micro-USB port to a computer and replace all the files and folders then rename the igo.exe to alpinenavi.exe in the Alpine folder and voilą.
