Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the iLX-207, a mech-less audio/video (A/V) system with 7-inch touch screen. It’s the first Alpine system to offer both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
“Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are popular features that we’re excited to bring to our consumers,” said Steve Crawford, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “The iLX-207 is a match for consumers who depend on their phones and want to be smart about using their main phone features in the vehicle.”
The iLX-207 is an AM/FM system with Bluetooth wireless technology on a 7-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen and is optimized for wired connectivity with an iPhone or Android smartphone. The iLX-207 “Works with Apple CarPlay,” so iPhone owners can use CarPlay to make and receive calls, access text messages, play music, and get directions optimized for traffic conditions in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road. CarPlay is accessed through the iLX-207’s touch screen or through Siri voice control using the “Voice” button. CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 and later.
