Alpine ILX-F409 Single-Din 9″ Multimedia Car Receiver
Alpine’s iLX-F409 Halo9 digital media receiver boasts an impressive 9″ touch display that can fit in most single-DIN (2″ tall) dash openings — and it’s adjustable so you can still get to your climate controls. It also features smartphone integration so you can roll with your favorite apps, plus compatibility with the iDatalink Maestro module so you can keep your beloved factory features.
GO BEYOND FACTORY
The Alpine Halo9 upgrades your vehicle’s technology with an intuitive touchscreen that allows you to control the music, navigation, and calls on our smartphone all from your dash. The screen is attached to an adjustable mount connected to a single-DIN chassis that’s designed to fit in most dash openings. With five vertical adjustments, four angles, and two separate depths, you can position the floating display in the most optimal position, so you still have access to your dash controls and HVAC system. Once you’ve determined the best position, the iLX-F409 locks in for a study installation.
Customize the screen exactly the way you want it. Use the capacitive touchscreen to move an icon using drag-and-drop motions with your finger. With over 22 available widgets, you can prioritize your three home screens so you can quickly find the apps you want. While driving, choose from widgets like Clock, USB images, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, “Now Playing,” Sources, Camera, and Bluetooth functions. Add a customizable wallpaper from your photos through a thumb drive.
The iLX-F409 “Works with Apple CarPlay” and lets iPhone users make and receive calls, access text messages, play music, and get direction in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay is accessed through the capacitive touchscreen or the mic button to activate Siri voice control and is compatible with iPhone 5 and later (iPhone must be connected via Apple lightning cable).
The iLX-F409 includes Android Auto and works with the Google Assistant (requires both a USB cable and Bluetooth connection; requires an Android phone running 5.0 [Lollipop] or higher and the Android Auto app). To access the Google Assistant on Android Auto, say “OK Google” or select the mic button. Google Assistant in Android Auto allows users to play their favorite music, get driving directions to their destination, interact with smart home devices, and reply to text messages – hands-free.
