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

PRECAUTIONS
Product Cleaning
Use a soft dry cloth for periodic cleaning of
the product. For more severe stains, please
dampen the cloth with water only. Anything
else has the chance of dissolving the paint or
damaging the plastic.
Remove the anti-theft cover when you drive.
This prevents the cover from falling off the
unit and interfering with the safe operation of
the vehicle.
Operation of some of the functions of this
unit is very complex. Because of this, it was
deemed necessary to place these functions
into a special screen. This will restrict
operation of these functions to times when
the vehicle is parked. This ensures the focus

Installation Location
Make sure the TMI-M990 will not be
installed in a location subjected to:
•
•
•
•
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
• After turning the system off, a slight ghost
of the image will remain temporarily. This
is an effect peculiar to LCD technology
and is normal.
• In cold temperature conditions, the screen
may lose contrast temporarily. After a
short warm-up period, it will return to
normal.

Getting Started
About the Remote Control
Notes on Using the Remote
Controlmmmmmmmmmmm
Point the remote control transmitter at the
remote control sensor.
If connected to an IONBUS compatible head
unit, even if you point the remote control at the
remote control sensor on the head unit, the
operation is received the same way.
Battery Replacement
Applicable battery: Use two “AAA” sized dry
batteries or equivalent.
1
Opening the battery cover.
Push on the cover and slide it as
indicated by the arrows then the
cover will be removed.
2
Replacing the battery.
Put the batteries in the case
observing the polarity, as illustrated.
3
Closing the cover.
Push the cover in the arrow
direction until a click is heard.
Remote control sensor
• Point the remote control at the remote sensor
within about 2 meters.
• It may not be possible to operate the remote
control unit if the remote control sensor is
exposed to direct sunlight.
• The remote control is a small, light weight
precision device. To avoid damage, short
battery life, operational errors and poor
button response, observe the following.
− Do not subject to shock.
− Do not put in a trouser pocket.
− Keep away from food, moisture and dirt.
− Do not place in direct sunlight.
Warning
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.

When the TMI-M990 is connected to an IONBUS compatible
head unit:
• The TMI-M990 power is linked to the head unit. When the
head unit is switched on, the TMI-M990 is also switched on,
and when the head unit is switched off, the TMI-M990 is also
switched off.
For details, refer to the head unit Operating Instructions.
• The power cannot be switched off from the TMI-M990.
• When the system switch on this unit is set to STANDALONE,
the power will not turn on. You must set to SYSTEM. (See
page 58)
○
• The unit can be turned on by pressing any one of the buttons
V.SEL/DISP. OFF, VISUAL EQ or R.SEL/WIDE.
• The TMI-M990 draws minimal current even when its power
switch is turned off. If the switched power (ignition) lead of the
TMI-M990 is connected directly to the positive (+) post of the
vehicle's battery, the battery may be discharged. If this lead is
unswitched, it must be disconnected from the battery post
should the vehicle be left unused for an extended period of
time.
An SPST (Single-Pole, Single-Throw) switch (sold separately)
can be added to simplify this procedure. Then, you can simply
place it in the OFF position when you leave the vehicle. Turn
the SPST switch back ON before using the TMI-M990. For
connecting the SPST switch, refer to the “Connection Diagram
of SPST Switch” (page 59).
• Some operation of the unit cannot be performed while the
vehicle is in motion. In this case, be sure to first stop your
vehicle and apply the parking brake, then perform the
operation.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please
read the following and pages 3 to 5 of this
manual thoroughly for proper use.
Warning
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS
Failure to make the proper connections
may result in fire or product damage.
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.
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.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BOLTS
OR SCREWS OUT OF THE REACH OF
CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious
injury. If swallowed, consult a physician
immediately.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH
MIGHT HINDER VEHICLE OPERATION,
SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL OR
SHIFT LEVER.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or
hamper movement etc. and results in
serious accident.
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 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.
55-EN
Installation and Connections
Caution
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.
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.
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 wires
insulation from being cut by the metal
edge of the hole.
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.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the
(–) battery post before installing your
TMI-M990. This will reduce any chance
of damage to the unit in case of a shortcircuit.
• 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.
• 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 TMI-M990 to
the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the
intended circuit of the TMI-M990 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.
• The TMI-M990 uses female RCA-type
jacks for connection to other units (e.g.
amplifier) having RCA connectors. You
may need an adaptor to connect other
units. If so, please contact your
authorized ALPINE dealer for
assistance.
• The Display must be completely
retracted in the casing when installing. If
it is not, problems may occur.
• When installing in automobiles,
make sure the Display can open/close
without coming in contact with the gear
shift.

Lock Pin
Slide the TMI-M990 into the dashboard.
When the unit is in place, make sure
the locking pins are fully seated in the
down position. This can be done by
pressing firmly in on the unit while
