Alpine Electronics In-Dash Digital Media Receiver with Apple CarPlay

The iLX-700 is Available for European Markets from December 2014

Alpine Electronics (Europe) GmbH announces market introduction for December 2014 in European markets and introduces the iLX-700, an aftermarket in-dash receiver dedicated for optimum compatibility with Apple CarPlay. This exciting new product will further enhance Alpine’s in-vehicle environment providing drivers a smarter, safer more fun way to use iPhone in the car.

The iLX-700 is a drive-less in-dash receiver with a 7-inch capacitive touch screen with a flat-face design. It is dedicated for use with Apple CarPlay to provide drivers with a seamless iPhone experience in the vehicle. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. When Apple CarPlay is used on the iLX-700, users can control Apple CarPlay from the 7-inch screen or activate Siri for minimized distraction. Corresponding audio, driving directions and phone calls are played through the vehicle’s speaker system. Apple CarPlay uses a Lightning connector and is compatible with iPhone 5 or later, including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the latest version of iOS.

Other features include three (2V) PreOuts, one A/V Aux input, Alpine’s MediaXpander™ technology for improved playback of compressed media, and an input for a rear view camera system (camera system sold separately). It has a shallow, 7cm chassis for greater installation flexibility into vehicles.

The iLX-700 is compatible with the Alpine Tunelt™ 2.0 App, a free smartphone app that provides customized sound tuning for Alpine audio systems. The Alpine Tunelt 2.0 App lets users easily adjust a wide range of sound settings including time correction, parametric EQ, crossover points, preset EQ modes and more. The settings are made through the app and uploaded to the iLX-700 for precise sound customization and immediate results.

“Apple CarPlay is an incredible experience for drivers. We are pleased to offer Alpine users a product dedicated to Apple CarPlay, which provides access to the iPhone features they want to use most while driving, such as Maps, Messages, making calls, listening to music and more.” said Hirofumi Morioka, Alpine’s Senior Director and CTO.

The iLX-700 will be available for 599 Euro SRP from December 2014 at authorized Alpine retailers. Please visit the Dealer Locator in your local Alpine website to contact a local Alpine retailer for availability information.
