Alpine IVA-W205 XM not displaying in source menu

Purchased a above unit few weeks ago. All worked well for a time, then XM disappeared from the source menu. Now I can't select it or access XM. I do have an acitve subscription. Retailer of unit told me that they are familiar with this however Alpine says it is a software issue wiht no fic currently available. Seems to only effect newer Alpine units. Help!

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

How do you run the satillie radio and hookup an ipod to this radio (alpine IVA-d310) at the same time?

you can buy either a cable for the i pod or depending on the model of alpine you may need a part to go with it to operate this can be picked up at any car audio place there are also either multiple auxs for your unit for sat radio. some newer units allow you to buy the alpine part to adapt to a sirius or xm part that wires in behind the stereo to give you the operation on your head unit.
