However, it is PAL compatible too. If you have a screen that is configured for PAL and your iPod's video format is set for PAL, simply select the PAL setting in Alpine KCE-425i Settings. All Alpine screens are native NTSC screens, therefore we recommend that you set your iPod and KCE-425i to NTSC video format for best picture quality. To toggle between NTSC and PAL settings, follow the steps below: NTSC to PAL 1. Be sure you are on the Main Menu Screen NOTE:Your iPod must be removed from the Alpine KCE-425i before attempting to change formats. 2.

Next, make sure that you are in the desired mode - On-Screen Navigation Modeor iPodMode. To change modes, simply push the Mode Button on your Remote Control. See Remote Control Functions (page7) Sometimes NEXT >I seems not to work? While Album art is loaded, the remote commands are not executed immediately. One command will be stored and executed when the full album art is loaded. In the normal menu screen, this blackout time usually starts 3 seconds after playback of a song begins and can take 7 seconds, depending on the iPod model. In 'Now Playing' mode the blackout starts immediately and takes up to 15 seconds. Please refer to (page 16) My audio is distorted, how can I improve it? Files on your iPod can come from many different sources (i.e. iTunes store, ripping your own CDs, Podcasts etc.). The audio levels on these differ widely. The fixed volume setting in the set-up menu leaves usually enough headroom to avoid distortion by clipping. If this is not enough, enable the volume control (SETTINGS-AUDIO SETTINGS-VARIABLE) and lower the volume as needed. 15 Tips & Troubleshooting I've selected a photo slideshow to play on my screen, but it's only playing on my iPod screen. On your iPod, check to see that your TV Out setting under Video/Slideshow Settings is set to either Ask or On. Your Video or Slideshow will not play on your screen unless you select TV On when prompted by your iPod in the Ask setting, or you have selected On under TV Out in Video Settings. Your iPod arrives in the Ask setting, so you will have to select TV On each time you start up a Video or Photo Slideshow unless you change your iPod Settings. Remember, iPod nano does not support external photo slideshows. For more information see the NOTE on (page 10) The Alpine KCE-425i sometimes seems to have a lag time before it displays my iPod's content like album art or song information. Why? The response delay time, if any, is usually the Alpine KCE-425i waiting for informa tion from the iPod. Hard-drive based iPods like the 5G iPod with video take longer than flash based iPods like the iPod nano. How long it takes depends on how much content is on the iPod and what information is being requested. For instance, when you've selected 'Now Playing' on the Alpine KCE-425i that displays “large” Album Art 200 x 200 pixels, (if available), it can take up to 20 seconds for the iPod to access that art work. See Things to Understand About iPod Album Art (page 13) for more information. 16 Technical Specifications Inputs/Outputs Left/Right Audio: analog audio output Video: composite video output S-Video: separated analog video output Power Input: 11-15volts/dc USB-A: standard universal serial bus, USB 2.0 (only to be used for firmware updates) Remote Control Battery: 3V, type CR2032 or equivalent Television Video Format NTSC/PAL (software switchable) Note: Due to continuous product improvement, specifications are subject to change without notice 17 Technical Specifications iPod Models Supported MUSIC COMPATIBILITY: All Dockable iPods (excluding 3G & 4G iPod) iPod touch 2nd generation 8GB 16GB 32GB iPod classic 80GB 160GB iPod nano 4th generation (video) 8GB 16GB iPod 5th generation (video) 30GB 60GB 80GB iPod classic 120GB iPod nano 1st generation 1GB 2GB 4GB iPod touch 1st generation 8GB 16GB 32GB iPod nano 2nd generation (aluminum) 2GB 4GB 8GB iPod nano 3rd generation (video) 4GB 8GB NOTE: Apple iPod models listed as of Sept 2008 18 Technical Specifications iPod Models Supported Picture COMPATIBILITY: All iPods with Colour Display (excluding iPod 4G, nano 1G, nano 2G, iPod Touch 1G & 2G) iPod 5th generation (video) | 30GB 60GB 80GB iPod nano 4th generation (video) 8GB 16GB iPod nano 3rd generation (video) 4GB 8GB iPod classic 120GB iPodclassi iPod classic 80GB 160GB NOTE: Apple iPod models listed as of Sept 2008 19 Technical Specifications iPod Models Supported VIDEO COMPATIBILITY: All iPods with Video capability iPod touch 2nd generation 8GB 16GB 32GB iPod touch 1st generation 8GB 16GB 32GB iPod nano 4th generation (video) 8GB 16GB iPod nano 3rd generation (video) 4GB 8GB iPod classic 120GB iPod classic 80GB 160GB iPod 5th generation (video) 30GB 60GB 80GB NOTE: Apple iPod models listed as of Sept 2008 20 Alternative Remote Control Alpine RUE-4191 Universal Remote Controller - NAV.

Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc. and results in serious accident. 22 Precautions ACAUTION Installation and Connections HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS. The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer where you purchased this product to have the work done. Precautions • Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (-). battery post before installing your KCE-425i. This will reduce any chance of damage to the unit in case of a short-circuit. USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURELY. Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of other than designated parts may damage this unit internally or may not securely install the unit in place. This may cause parts to become loose resulting in hazards or product failure. • Be sure to connect the colour coded leads according to the diagram. Incorrect connections may cause the unit to malfunction or damage to the vehicle's electrical system. ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE. Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the seat rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use a rubber grommet to prevent the wire's insulation from being cut by the metal edge of the hole. • When making connections to the vehicle's electrical system, be aware of the factory installed components (e.g. on-board computer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for this unit. When connecting the KCE-425i to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the KCE-425i has the appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit and/or the vehicle. When in doubt, consult your ALPINE dealer. DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR DUST. Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit may result in product failure. 23 Connections Connection Diagram DVD PLAYER FACTORY SCREEN iPod (NOT SUPPLIED) CAR SPECIFIC AN INTERFACE GND BATTO KCE-425i POWER SUPPLY ACCO rra una AUDIO Loc EXTERNAL REMOTE EYE VIDEO < iPod IN S-VIDEO OUT AID REMOTE EYE INPUT < UPDATE PORT IVO PORT 24 Connections Connection Diagram Note: Make sure to set the selected AUX input of your Alpine touchscreen to 'EXT DVD' TOUCH MONITOR CONTROLS* K DU D A MENU P 12 ENTER RETURN MENU P 2/2 * Please note that only basic controls are available on some models TOUCH MONITOR iPod (NOT SUPPLIED) IVA-D310R BC GND BATTο KCE-425i POWER SUPPLY ACCO AUDIO Lobo VIDEO - iPod IN I S-VIDEO OUT REMOTE EYE INPUT To Remote-Out line of Alpine touchscreen monitor (white-brown) COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS: IVA-D100R, IVA-D105R, IVA-D106R IVA-D310R/RB, IVA-W200Ri, IVA-W202R IVA-W205R, IVA-W502R, IVA-W505R TME-M740BT, TME-M770S, TME-M860 IVO PORT UPDATE PORT 25 Connections EN Connection Diagram Note: Make sure to set the selected AUX input of your Alpine overhead monitor to 'EXT DVD' < DO CONTROLS INTO > To Remote-Out line of Alpine overhead monitor (white-brown) iPod (NOT SUPPLIED) GND BATT KCE-425i POWER SUPPLY pro 4 АССc— AUDIO L - VIDEO D iPod IN IS-VIDEO OUT REMOTE EYE INPUT COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS: PKG-1000P PKG-2000P PKG-850P IVO PORT UPDATE PORT Support and manuals in other languages available at: alpine-europe.com Guide d'utilisateur disponsible sur: alpine-electronics.fr 27 ALPINE ELECTRONICS MARKETING, INC. 1-1-8 Nishi Gotanda, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo 141-0031, Japan Phone 03-5496-8231 ALPINE ELECTRONICS GmbH Wilhelm-Wagenfeld-Str. 1-3, 80807 München, Germany Phone 089-32 42 640 ALPINE ELECTRONICS OF AMERICA, INC. 19145 Gramercy Place, Torrance, California 90501, U.S.A.
