SOURCE: how do you change the time

The time can be changed in the General set up screen or if you have the P1 Navigation connected to the Alpine and you can have the P1 automatically set the time through the navigation.

Alpine iva w205

Sounds like a problem with the actual touch screen itself. Kinda like an iPod touch. If the screen gets smashed ( like if your kid puts it in their back pocket and sits on it :) . That can be replaced but its a fairly costly item and is a reeeeeeeeeal pain. Not to mention if the new touch screen gets so much as a hairline crack in it ( some you can't even see ) it won't work. Hope this helps.

XM Source not displayed

wow this is a tuffy,

1.) download the firmware update for the alpine 9883
you will get it off the manufactures web page
2.) Install it,
3.) when ever an update comes out for your alpine IVA-W205 you can upgrade back up to that

The problem really is with the software, now there isnt a current fix for it as they havent found the problem yet. However the alpine 9883 firmware works on your model alpine and very damn well too i may say.. So thats the only way to fix it currently.

here is the firmware

here is alpines home page

just follow the above instructions and you'd be fine
