As we know, the conceals many secrets, which are gradually revealed.

One of that secret facility is called Micom Manager, and with that special functionality, we can activate the rearview camera and its guidelines, the TMC and the AHA and also we can do and audio tests. In the versions mounted on , it is also possible to manage the ECO mode

(On some models of Dacia, is missing a multiplexer that has not provided the connection with the control unit, but on the second hand market is available for buying for around 50$).

But now let’s see how to get there:

  • Format a USB stick like “FAT32”
  • Open the USB stick
  • ✅DOWNLOAD ℹLINK HERE after BEER DONATION🍻 with password: 750078
  • Extract them (not open directly) and copy directly in the main folder.

  4. MN3 de la 1.0.x.x: mcmtest_activate.ini ( complete menu MICOM )
  • Load the USB stick in the main slot from Media Nav
  • Startup the navigation Contact, turn on, volume +, volume – and click empty USB for MEDIANAV or go to Settings → System → System Version [PAGE 2]) for MEDIANAV EVOLUTION

If you need all the functionalities, please visit another article on my blog with all the buttons explained:

https://lisandru.eu/movies/micom-manager-hidden-settings-with-all-functionalities-explained-for-media-nav-dacia-renault.html

After the modifications, you need to reset the navigation by the pushing of the first button: DSI_Config (MN1 & MN2) or  Hard Reset (MN3)

I hope that this helps you and now you are a happy little hacker that modified your navigation as you need.

  1. Good day thanks for the information on the medianav can you supply the full info to access the windows win6.0.2 so I can access the
    Ecu set up and remove the restriction my Renault service center has set on my 67 plate capture 1.5 dci your information on the ecu screen works fine but I think I need an extra file on my USB stick to access win ecu set up screen. Midianav get 9.1.x if you have the reset info for the ecu screen functions I would be most grateful for a copy. Kind regards k.p

    1. Thanks for the feedback,
      About how to access Win CE please read:
      https://lisandru.eu/automotive/renault-dacia-medianav-tips/how-to-access-the-wince-on-media-nav-dacia-renault.html
      About the reset of you medianav you need just to deactivate the functions. Hard reset is forbidden and you need to take care of what you are doing progressively.

      In the next articles I will put also how to upgrade the medianav or reset it in case of be broken.

      I hope that I’ve helped you 😉

  2. merci pour tout ce que vous faite,je voudrais juste savoir comment retirer les restrictions du medianav 1.0.13.2 surtout pour continuer a lire des videos en roulant je vous serais tres reconnaissant merci d’avance.

  3. hi there, i am trying to download the file and extract it however its not allowing me to extract as there is some error windows 10 is giving me. can you please help with another file perhaps.

  4. hi there, i did all the steps for media nav 9.1.3 however the micom settings is not there its just faded and unable to click on it.

    1. Hello Abdullah, This is the effect of not puting the 2 files on the USB stick: mcmtest_activate.ini + mcmtest_activate_4medianav.ini (STEP 3 from article → Download the files from the link, extract them and copy directly in the main folder.). You need to download the file from article, extract it with password: lisandru.eu and then copy on the formated as FAT32 USB stick. After that you will do the next spes and it will work correctly.

  5. Hello,
    Thanks for all explanations. Can you tell me if exist any possibility on MediaNav 1.0.13.2 to keep playing videos when I drive ?
    Thank you!

  6. anybody know if there is a way to reduce the mic level from the car microphone ?
    i ask because mine has a fault where my handsfree works in that if connects with bluetooth, i can dial/answer calls, i can hear perfectly the other end of the call received. but by audio is getting feedback and ends up in a loop where it ramps up the gain, gets feedback and reduces it down and starts again, so it sounds like it just clicks to the other end every 2 seconds

  7. Hi The password you provided dosn’t work for me, it is reported that the password is wrong and the files are empty when extracted

    1. Hello mr. PERA, Just donwload the file, extract it by inserting the pass: lisandru.eu .Don’t open it because this is the reason for not seeing the files. Put the files on the usb and should work after that.

  8. Hello. Thanks for the excellent material. Unfortunately I can’t even enter in test mode. Although I’pretty sure I touched the version screen in the right order and places. Tried so many times. With and without a pendrive with the corresponding file. It’s a evolution with 1.0.13
    Can you possible help me? Any idea?

    1. It’s impossible to not succeed. First you need to put the 3 files:mcmtest_activate_4nng.ini, mcmtest_activate_4medianav.ini, mcmtest_activate_4nng.ini on usb fat32 formatted, then version (5 touch points) and finally you go to miconmanager.

      1. Thanks a lot for your answer. Indeed I misunderstood, ans tried only with one file. I’ll give it another try and let you know. Thanks!!! (Those 3 files for version 1.0.13.1, right?)

        1. Hello. Ok, It did work. 🙂 thanks a lot.

          I managed to access the settings and alter them, but I couldn’t achieve my principal goal that was to enable navigation.

          Here in brasil, latest version of MN cames with the navigation not enabled. I tried some values at map setting and in GPS button, but couldn’t get the nav enabled.

          The GPS TEST from first screen after codes (the one with the micom test button), shows all gps data working normally. Have any idea how could I enable navigation?
          Thanks

          1. Yes. On the third row you will sew bellow hmi something like no map. There just choose something else. After this you need to reset it and the navigation button will appear.

      2. Hallo die erste und dritte datei sind doch die selben bei mir bleibt das
        fenster micom test hell grau
        weiß jemand woran das liegt
        Kannst du mir möglicherweise helfen? Irgendeine Idee?

        ENG: Hello the first and third files are the same for me it remains
        window micom test light gray
        Does anyone know why this is
        Can you possibly help me? Any idea?

        1. If you are putting the 3 files inside of directly USB is impossible to not work. Keep in mind that before inserting the codes you need to have already inserted the usb with that 3 files. Wait for your feedback.

    1. Yes. The first button but you need to be very gentil to not push the virgin ( the 2nd one) because you clear your medianav and is not so simple to come back. You can use also long pushing the power.

  9. Hello,

    I knew that if the MediaNav comes with AHA deactivated, it will not be possible to activate it anymore.
    Are you sure it works from MICOM?

    Thank you!

  10. Hello 1.0.13.2 version medinav there is no Navigation box on the main screen. How can I activate this from the micom test menu?

    1. Unfortunately I don’t know so much things about this version. Maybe you should try with the MN1 & MN2 6.x.x: mcmtest_activate.ini (menu Micom+ WinCE)
      and by pressing: For version 3.x.x-8.x.x:
      Type 0362
      Press OK
      Delete with the right button
      Type 3748
      Press OK

  11. Have you tried number 6 – Reversing radar: Sound (SND) + template (HMI Off / HMI R / HMI-FR) + SPK-FR ?? Does it work on Dacia Duster 2?

    1. Hello,
      If you are speaking about navigation gps I remember that 1 solution is to enter in Micon Manager and bellow number 5 just put something different than non or something. If you are speaking about another GPS please check the number 23 from the same photo. Look at the article on the image: Medianav EVO II Car Android Play 1.0.13.x. In EUROPE we have as in image WEU. Please comeback with feedback if is ok now.

    1. Do you mean to activate the navi icon on the interface of medianav ?? in case is not existing ? If yes, please follow the steps from my article to go on micon manager and change the button between 7 & 8, and the left from 11 to your zone. In my case is EUROPE as you can see in the bottom image from the article. Please try and let me know if is something more 😉

  12. Hi..
    I have previously followed your tutorial and entered TEST MODE and Micom Manager and activated the rearview camera and other options..
    Things are working completely fine.

    Now I need to change something and I am not able to enter the TEST MODE by going into settings -> system version and touching the 5 points on the screen.

    Can you please solve my problem..

    1. It’s something related to your touches points. I don’t know about some modifications way recently. Please try also with the files from upper on the USB before to insert the code.

    1. Hello everyone…I have the same issue that Karlos… I can activate rear camera for example, but not the GPS on medianav 1.0.13.1, Latin America version… I tried to change maps configuration, but always boot the device with no map configuration… Medianav always return to no map settings… I tried uploading maps to the medianav with a pendrive with autorun sh command… the maps are now on medianav, but I can’t activate the Navigation button…

  13. Unlocked everything I needed to, when the camera is connected the medianav is saying camera is damaged or not connected
    the camera works fine on a separate screen any ideas on what to do.

  14. Good morning everyone,
    I have a Dacia Duster with medianav evolution with latest update version 1.0.13.3.
    I have a few questions …

    Is there a way to activated wifi because android auto works fine with USB cable?

    Is there a way to replace the Google maps with Magic Earth GPS navigation?

    Thank you.
    LIE-A-FO from French Guiana.

    1. Unfortunately I don’t know about wifi connection for android car. Maybe you can do it with some additional hardware. Regarding the software earth GPS instead of google maps i think is just a matter of time for developing.

  15. i tried codes for 2.0.9.9 but it shows incorrect… can you guide me to open micom manager without code & where to touch 10 times to do that …

  16. when I have ever tried MICOM before on my evolution I have to save settings, turned off radio using the on off volume button and opened drivers door and waited 12 seconds and then turned on the radio again and it appears to have saved settings. Are you saying :

    “After the modifications, you need to reset the navigation by the pushing of the first button: DSI_Config (MN1 & MN2) or Hard Reset (MN3)”

    That if i press on DSI_Config onscreen button that this does the same thing and that it is safe to press the DSI_config without it ruining the radio? – also when you press DSI_Config do you have to re-tune all the radio stations again?
    Thank You.

    1. Hello Andy, the dsi_config is just a hard reset of medianav. Is not affecting your setting of interface. Is judt a shortway to apply the micon settings and to restart faster the medianav.

  17. Hello I would like to have it that as soon as I enter my car through drivers door that my medianav ‘comes alive’ with either clock or radio showing onscreen , so I went in Micom Manager and set

    “8. Ignition type of the MN: ON (key on accessory: the station displays the time, engine on: the station displays the menu if presence of the BIC); AC (key on accessory: the station displays the menu)”

    to ‘WAKE – ON’ but after restarting the radio it has no effect. I still have to place the keycard into slot ((renault Clio 4) or start engine to ‘wake up’ radio – any idea why please?

    Thank you.

    1. Regarding the micon settings i’ve obsserved also that you need to make more than 1 saving at same time. When i switch the medianav skin from m0 to m1 and to activate ac info I need to make 3 times the changes and dsi_config after. About waking up i think that also the cabling is influencing no? Or not.. i will search more about the subject

      1. many thanks isandru – it would be great if I could have that feature – it takes so long for radio to be able to be worked from turning on. at least if it started turning on the radio when the door is open at least it would save time

  18. Hello
    Thank you for sharing this tutorial.
    I have a Duster model after 2018.
    I would like to ask you something for the rear camera.
    I have bouht the following kit https://www.daciamag.com/dacia-duster-ii-2018-rear-view-camera-original-8201714222.html
    My car had no rear camera. When I removed the Medianav and I checked the connector on the back I saw that the cable for the camera was already pre- installed but I could not find the path of the cable. Can you help me, if you know where the other of this cable is terminated in the car?
    Best regards
    George

  19. Have you worked out any of the options in the Medianav Evo II 2019 version? Some of the options I can’t figure out are ILL on/off, HMI off/on and the group setting in line 3.

    Altering the MO white to M1 doesn’t seem to make any difference either, presume it’s a background colour/Dacia/Renault thing?

    There’s an option under MICOM test called Radio Tuning which suggest there’s a connection possible to a PC instead of MICOM but I’m not sure how to proceed with that. I was hoping to find some advanced radio options including how to alter the tuning step size and range, America for example will tune AM in 10kHz steps and Japan uses a different frequency range for FM so there must be options for these buried somewhere?

    I was really hoping to find something that would increase the AM filter bandwidth on the radio IC because it appears to be software defined.

  20. Hi I have mn version 403 in a dacia logan with the older version 1 menu. This only shows 4 selections for rev camera and nothing fora logan. When I select None(no guidelines) which highlights until I press config and seems to cancel as nothing happens This is a 2014 version. Is it not possible to configure rev camera inthisversion
