PDF Content Summary: /////alpine® Printed in Taiwan R.O.C. TME-M580 5.8-INCH WIDE LCD COLOR MONITOR OWNER’S MANUAL Please read before using this equipment. Points to Observe for Safe Usage WARNING This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in serious injury or death. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER. Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock. KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately. USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES. Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock. USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND. (Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may result in fire, etc. BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to electrical shorts. DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES. Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of the wire and result in fire or electric shock. DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER VEHICLE OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL OR GEARSHIFT. Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc. and results in serious accident. DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS. Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or any other safety-related system), or tanks should NEVER be used for installations or ground connections. Using such parts could disable control of the vehicle and cause fire etc. DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE. Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do so may result in an accident. DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED IN SURROUNDING OBJECTS. Arrange wiring and cables in compliance with the manual to prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring that obstruct or hang up on places such as the steering wheel, gear lever, brake pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous. DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES. When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel lines, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions may result in fire. MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS. Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product damage. KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL HEAR OUTSIDE NOISE WHILE DRIVING. Failure to do so may result in an accident. USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS. Use for other than its designed application may result in fire, electric shock or other injury. DO NOT INSTALL THE MONITOR NEAR THE PASSENGER SEAT AIR BAG. If the unit is not installed correctly the air bag may not function correctly and when triggered the air bag may cause the monitor to spring upwards causing an accident and injuries. MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING. Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and cause an accident. DO NOT WATCH VIDEO WHILE DRIVING. Watching the video may distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and cause an accident. INSTALL THE PRODUCT CORRECTLY SO THAT THE DRIVER CANNOT WATCH TV/VIDEO UNLESS THE VEHICLE IS STOPPED AND THE EMERGENCY BRAKE IS APPLIED. It is dangerous (and illegal in many states) for the driver to watch TV/Video while driving a vehicle. Installing this product incorrectly enables the driver to watch TV/Video while driving. This may cause a distraction, preventing the driver from looking ahead, thus causing an accident. The driver or other people could be severely injured. Points to Observe for Safe Usage CAUTION This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in injury or material property damage. 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. 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. 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. 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. HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS. Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service Center for repairing.

After a short warm-up period, it will return to normal. • The LCD panel is manufactured using an extremely high precision manufacturing technology. Its effective pixel ratio is over 99.99%. This means that there is a possibility that 0.01% of the pixels could be either always ON or OFF.

Page 6 Installation Caution: Do not install the monitor near the front passenger seat air bag system. <Mount it using the supplied bracket> 1. Assemble the supplied bracket and mount the monitor temporarily. 1 Note: Always use the supplied bracket or equivalent. 2. Verify the installation location. Select a flat surface and temporarily mount the unit. Use adhesive tape, etc. Notes: • Mounting hints • Top of the monitor should not exceed the top of the dash when viewed from the driver’s seat. • Use a stable mounting surface. • Angle the monitor for easy viewing. • In a vehicle with a front passenger air bag, do not install the unit 2 where it will interfere with the operation of the safety systems. • If the surface of the dash board is finished with other than plastic (leather, wooden panel, cloth covered panel, etc.), there will be some damage if the bracket is removed. • Installation close to other equipment (such as a GPS antenna) may give rise to mutual interference. Please pay careful attention to the installation location and maintain sufficient space between other equipment. 3. Remove the monitor from the bracket. 4. Peel the protective paper from the double-stick tape on the bracket’s base. Clean the mounting location with a suitable cleaner. Notes: • Warm the mounting location with a dryer, etc. and then place the bracket into position. • Do not apply force or moisture for 24 hours after installation. • If the bracket is not attached securely with just the tape, use the supplied screws to complete the installation. • If the mounted surface is curved slightly, reform the base to fit to its shape. 5 5. Mount the monitor to the bracket. Thread the mounting screw into hole at the bottom of the monitor. Secure the monitor by tightening the screw. Depending upon the location, the bracket can also be mounted using the supplied nut to slide into the back of the monitor. Thread the bracket mounting screw into the nut. Slide the nut in the channel on the back of the monitor and adjust the height and tighten. Dress the monitor’s cable using the cord clamp provided. 6. Adjust the height and angle of the monitor for easy visibility. Determine the height and angle. Tighten the height and angle adjusting screws to secure the monitor. NOTE: • The A/V Interface box may be mounted in any suitable location. Make sure the box and the wires connected to it will not interfere with safely operating the vehicle. • Mounting the Interface box near the monitor will reduce the need for additional cable extensions. • This monitor can be mounted in a headrest if desired. A special mounting kit is required and can be purchased from your Authorized Alpine dealer. Ask for model KTE-580V. Page 7
