Alpine iLX-700 - In-Dash Digital Media Receiver with Apple CarPlay
The innovative iLX-700 In-Dash System with Apple CarPlay brings you a smarter way to use your iPhone on the road. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, and listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch.
You can even enjoy Spotify, internet radio or Podcasts while on the road for a truly connected experience.
When Apple CarPlay is used on the iLX-700, users can control Apple CarPlay from the 7-inch high-resolution display or activate Siri for minimized distraction.
Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, Phone 5, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 plus running the latest version of IOS.
iLX-700, iPhone and Apple CarPlay — a brilliant combination.
Apple CarPlay offers a safe and intuitive way to use your iPhone in your car. Simply connect your iPhone to the iLX-700 through the lightning connector and the Apple CarPlay apps appear on your Alpine screen.
Use the the 7” capacitive touch screen or Siri to get driving directions, make calls, browse though your music library and dictate SMS messages - or have Siri even read new incoming SMS messages to you.
Additionally there are more Apple CarPlay approved apps such as Podcasts, Spotify, internet radio and others - and the list keeps growing. Apple CarPlay allows you to use all these apps while keeping your eyes on the road.
Apple CarPlay Apps
When connecting your iPhone there are four pre-installed Apple CarPlay apps: Music, Phone, Maps and Messages.
They basically work just the same as on your iPhone, however they have been optimised to be used in the vehicle while driving. Simply tell Siri what music you want to listen to, dictate SMS messages, ask for driving directions or take and place calls.
Below we explain the these key apps in more detail. When you stop your car and engage the parking break you get additional option such as a keyboard to manually input navigation destinations.
Apple CarPlay seamlessly integrates with your iPhone for greater operating ease and functionality. Use Siri to make calls, return missed calls and listen to voice mails, keeping your eyes on the road.
You can control all the music search options of your iPhone directly from the iLX-700. Search playlists, artists, albums, songs, and more by scrolling or via alphabetic search. You can also activate Siri to play music by giving voice commands. The USB connection ensures superfast access and high-quality sound.
Wherever you go, let Apple CarPlay show you the way. The utter simplicity of Apple Maps will guide you through turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3-D views, traffic conditions and estimated travel time – all from your dashboard. And when you start to input an address, Apple CarPlay will use various information to quickly predict the destination.
Enjoy a better way of text messaging with friends and family with Apple CarPlay when you’re on the road. Through your voice commands, Siri can do all the heavy lifting by sending, reading and replying to your text messages so that you never have to glance at your phone while behind the wheel.
Additional Apple CarPlay apps
Additional Apple CarPlay approved apps such as Spotify, Podcasts, Rdio and others can be downloaded from iTunes to your iPhone and will then appear on the Apple CarPlay menu.
For more information and updates on third party apps supported by Apple CarPlay, please visit the Apple CarPlay website.
Apple CarPlay uses Siri voice control specifically for driving scenarios. Tell Siri what you’d like to listen to and Siri will be on it. Want a text message read or sent? Siri has that handled. Have calls to take and return on the road? Siri is the perfect co-pilot for that. Siri can seamlessly be activated from the dedicated hard button on the iLX-700 and on your steering wheel controls (if applicable).
Edge-to-Edge Glass Design
The iLX-700 features a beautiful edge-to-edge glass design that underlines the premium quality of the product. It seamlessly integrates into your car for
a neat appearance.
The iLX-700 will fit in most vehicles with its very low installation depth of only 7cm. It allows installation in VW Golf 7, BMW Series 1, BMW Series 3 and other vehicles with shallow 2DIN installation depth.
7” Capacitive WVGA Touch Screen
Using the 7” capacitive touch screen for the first time you will notice how well and delay-free it responds to inputs. This is by far the best screen we ever put into any of our products. Key features are:

Alpine’s digital AM / FM tuner finds and locks onto stations with extreme precision for superior sound quality and faster tuning performance. Virtually it also eliminates interference from multipath and adjacent channels. As a result, you enjoy crystal clear radio reception at all times.
Connection for Alpine Climate Control and Parking Sensor Interfaces
Many original factory head units have climate control and parking displays, which will be lost if the unit is removed. With the iLX-700, this is not a problem, as it supports Alpine interfaces that provide attractive graphic displays of climate control and parking information. This ensures full integration of the Alpine system with the car for greater driving safety and convenience.
Parking sensor displays distances to the front and rear, making it easier and safer to maneuvre into and out of parking spaces.
