Monimoto update using Windows PC

Step-by-Step Guide

1 You need to have micro USB to USB DATA cable. Android users can simply use Android phone cable.
If you don’t have one we suggest getting one like this

2 Download firmware file monimoto_v0.10.5.63.bin.

3 Remove Monimoto device from your vehicle and open battery cover.

4 Remove batteries from Monimoto slot and wait for 2 minutes.

5 Connect Monimoto to Windows PC using a USB cable.

6 Once connected to the PC you should see solid red LED.

7 Wait 20 seconds and unplug USB. Then plug in again.

A pop-up should appear on screen for a new disk drive called CRP1 ENABLD or CRP1 DISABLD. It looks very similar to a USB flash drive connected to the PC.

8 Once CRP1 ENABLD or CRP1 DISABLD appears, delete firmware.bin file.

9 Then replace with the new firmware file “monimoto_0.10.5.63.bin”. No need to rename the file.

10 Unplug USB cable from device.

11 Insert battery (batteries) and observe LED. You should see ~20 sec long fast flashes. Then one very long 5 sec flash.

If you saw one very long 5 sec flash, that means firmware is up to date. If you did not see that or missed it you may remove batteries for 2 minutes and repeat the process starting from step 4.

TIP: 5 sec long flash means the device is in default factory mode with the latest firmware. If you’re stuck, just contact support via monimoto app “message us”.

12 Open monimoto app, then tap HOME, upper menu and choose device to delete.

Android users have to long tap on device and delete it


iOS users need swipe left and delete device

In addition to the above – Iphone users need to go to phone Bluetooth settings, find Monimoto, it looks like mm.xxxxxxxxxxxxx and tap “forget it”.

Important! Firmware update from old to new one will reset your Monimoto to factory settings therefore you have to pair the device from scratch as a new device. Even if you see the device on the app you will not be able connect and your device will not work until you pair it again.

13 Pair Monimoto as first time using Monimoto app. Be sure to have a keyfob close to Monimoto device.

14 After successful pairing just open Monimoto app, tap on settings and click connect. This is just to check that all is OK.

15 Close Monimoto battery cover in a way that an arrow on each part of the cover is pointing to an arrow on another part.

16 After pairing the device to smartphone and installing it back on the vehicle we recommend to perform a test by triggering alarm

17 Finally, before you go – some users previously reported issues with batteries losing contact due to vibration. So once that you have the device with you now – here is the quickest and (possibly) funniest way to resolve it!

Troubleshooting for Windows

Disk drive CRP1 ENABLD or CRP1 DISABLD doesn’t pop-up automatically while trying to connect monimoto to Windows PC
Open File Explorer (My Computer) and look for CRP DISABLD (or CRP ENABLD) drive. Sometimes you need to wait a minute while Windows installs USB drivers plus unplug and plug in the USB cable several times.

-Don’t forget that it has to be USB data cable! Charging cable will not work.
When using DATA cable you can see “Safe to Remove Hardware” icon on the bottom right corner of the screen.

Windows 10

Windows 7

-You are connecting with batteries inside or trying to connect without waiting for 2 minutes after the batteries are removed.

TIP: Internet connection is no longer required after firmware has been downloaded. Windows always locate required drivers automatically so no need to adjust any windows settings.

I connected USB cable and see Monimoto red LED flashing instead of solid red

You have most likely connected with batteries inside or tried to connect without waiting for 2 minutes after the batteries are removed.

I see windows pop-up: There is not enough space on CRP Disabld or Enabld. You need an additional 256 KB to copy these files.

Unplug and plug in the USB cable. Restart the PC if needed.

I don’t see rapid LED flashes once saved file to CRP folder and inserted batteries back
-It’s likely you did not unplug the USB cable prior to inserting batteries. Remove batteries, unplug the USB and insert batteries again;
-Try to remove one (or both) batteries and insert back;
-Batteries are too low. Replace them with new ones;
-Firmware file was not saved to CRP folder. Remove batteries, Plug in USB, Wait for pop-up, delete firmware.bin file and save firmware 0.10.5.63.bin file. Then disconnect USB and insert batteries.
