MICOM Config (MN1 & MN2)

MICOM Config is one of the most complex tools available for Media Nav and is used for a wide range of operations. The most common are activating the rear camera or activating the rear speaker, yet it supports a lot of other settings. This application, designed for Windows CE, the underlying operating system of first and second generation Media Nav units, is the more complex and better organized equivalent of MICOM Manager, included in the official firmware. It is currently available for only a handful of firmware versions.

DISCLAIMER: This tool should be used with the utmost care. Inadequate use can brick the Media Nav unit. It is operated at one’s own risk. Colloquially said, don’t play around if you don’t know what you’re doing.

How to use

Prerequisites:
– a tablet, laptop or desktop equipped with an USB port
– USB flash drive, FAT32 formatted, max. 32 GB capacity
DBoot preinstalled on the Media Nav unit

Step 1. Download the MICOM Config tool from the link in the table above, according to the Media Nav and firmware versions.

Step 2. Extract the ZIP archive and put the files on the flash drive.

Step 3. Boot the Media Nav unit directly into Windows CE, using DBoot.

Step 4. Insert the flash drive into the USB port and start the application – dmicom.exe for Beta 1, micom v6.exe for v6 or dmicom_evo.exe for Evo.

Step 5. After changing the desired parameters, press Enregistrer (Save). The Media Nav will reboot with the new settings.

Note: MICOM Config cannot run in parallel with micommanager.exe, the MICOM Manager included in the official firmware. If this process is opened, you will need to manually close is, by using one of the Task Managers for Windows CE.
Note 2: For certain settings, there are text inputs, which require a virtual keyboard – see Virtual Keyboards for Windows CE.
