  • PMD-B200P crash problem

    I have a PMD-B200P with latest firmware ( along with the IVA-W205R head unit.

    The GPS works fine for 15-30 to 45 mins and then crashes with a
    Fatal Application Error
    and following message :
    Application Alpinenavi.exe has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

    Program: Alpinenavi.exe
    Exception: 0xc0000005
    Address: 0x0003c088
    (Address changes every time).

    After contacting vendor, I was relayed this information from Alpine:
    "Bluetooth functionality on PMD-B200P can cause instability / crashes. Adding a KCE-BT400 module should fix the problem."

    My vendor had no choice but to install for free this extra bluetooth module.

    I now have IVA-W205R+PMD-B200P-+KCE-BT400 setup and I have disabled bluetooth on the PMD but no effect: the crashes go on !

    The crash.txt shows that at every crash, FreeMemory is down to 0.
    What do you think possible causes can be?
    • Faulty RAM ?
    • Memory leak ?? (in which case other people should have the same pb)
    • other hints ???

    Re: PMD-B200P crash problem

    I finally shipped the unit back to the manufacturer and got a new one in exchange. The new one works fine.

    Was it bad hardware ? who knows ...
