7” Digital Media Station, featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility - iLX-702D

Alpine introduces the 2nd generation Alpine Style system for the BMW E46, featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The iLX-702E46 brings DAB+ digital radio, online navigation capability, USB audio and video playback, Bluetooth hands-free operation / audio streaming and much more to your 3-series BMW.

The iLX-702D Digital Media Station brings the latest media compatibility, online navigation capability and Alpine’s audiophile sound quality to your ride. It is fully compatible with the latest smartphones such as the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy and lets you use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on its 7-inch high-resolution touch screen.

DAB+ digital radio, USB video playback, HDMI connectivity and the latest Bluetooth technology are built-in as well.

You even have several options for navigation: the iLX-702D includes online navigation capability to use Maps with Apple CarPlay and Google navigation with Android Auto. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps can access the Alpine navigation antenna for highest positioning accuracy.

High Resolution WVGA Touch Screen

The 7-inch (17.8cm) high-resolution WVGA display allows full operation of the system via touch-screen technology and features the latest video enhancement technology for outstanding picture clarity, contrast and resolution. This allows online navigation maps to be displayed in stunning detail, while movies or video clips become a real cinematic experience. The user interface is very intuitive and is designed to perfectly integrate into your vehicle. You can choose from a variety of screen colours and designs to best match your taste and vehicle.

7-inch Screen with 1 DIN chassis

More and more vehicles feature a dashboard space for a 7-inch or 8-inch screen, however behind the screen there is no space to fit a full 2DIN product. The new SMART is for example one of the vehicles with such dashboard design. Alpine designed the iLX-702D to overcome this problem by putting a 1DIN chassis in the back of a 7-inch screen. With a car specific Alpine installation kit you can achieve a perfect installation and original manufacturer look.

Works with Apple CarPlay

The innovative iLX-702D with Apple CarPlay compatibility 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, 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. Simply connect your CarPlay enabled iPhone to the USB port of your Alpine and you are ready to go.

Works with Android Auto

Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With a simple and intuitive interface, integrated steering wheel controls, and powerful new voice actions, it's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road. Android Auto automatically brings you useful information, and organizes it into simple cards that appear just when they're needed. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can access the navigation antenna of the iLX-702D for highest accuracy when using the navi apps.

DAB+ Digital Radio

The built-in DAB/DAB+/DMB tuner uses the most advanced digital technology to deliver radio reception in outstanding, noise-free sound quality. DAB+ also offers many other advantages over traditional FM radio: select from a much wider range of radio stations and after an initial station scan you can easily select your desired channels from an alphabetic and genre list of available stations.

Connect USB and HDMI Sources

You can connect USB sticks and portable hard drives to playback audio and MP4 video files. The iLX-702D is also equipped with an HDMI input to connect the optional Alpine DVD player DVE-5300 or any other portable media player with HDMI output. You can also connect your smartphone if an HDMI adapter for your phone model is available to enjoy the video or photo content on the Alpine screen (requires additional cables and adapters). The iLX-702D includes an HDMI output as well to connect a rear monitor system via HDMI.

Note: The HDMI output is a pass-through of the HDMI input and can therefore not be used to output USB video content, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto content.

High-end Sound Tuning Options

The iLX-702D puts the power of advanced sound processing in your car with BASS ENGINE SQ to maximise bass sound and overall tone balance, plus lots of custom tuning functions like Digital Time Correction, Digital X-Over and Dual 9-band Parametric EQ. Best of all, you can set them easily from your smartphone with the Alpine TuneIt App. You also get Media Xpander, 24-Bit DAC and 3 PreOuts (4 Volt) as well.

Hi-Res Audio Playback

This Alpine unit can playback audio files in FLAC format – including 24/96 and 24/192 Hi-Res Audio compatibility.

Online Navigation with Apple CarPlay

When you’re driving, Maps helps you find the way to your destination with turn-by-turn spoken directions and new, easier-to-read visuals. When a turn is coming up, the view zooms in to show you exactly where to go. Along the way, large signs and arrows guide you in the right direction and let you know how long it’s going to take to get there. Looking for a gas station, restaurant, or coffee shop along your route? New buttons on the navigation screen help you quickly find the closest places and estimate how much time the detour will add to your trip. If you push the navigation hard-key on your iLX-702D, you directly active Apple CarPlay navigation without going through many menu points.

Online Navigation with Android Auto

Let Google Maps lead the way. It’s easy to get where you’re going with free voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Whether on your phone screen or on your car display, Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With larger touch targets, a simplified interface, and easy-to-use voice actions, it's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road. The iLX-702D works seamlessly with Android Auto and Google maps. Android Auto can even access the Alpine navigation antenna for highest positioning accuracy.

GPS and Glonass Compatible

More satellites equal higher navigation accuracy and a faster positioning fix. This Alpine product is compatible with GPS satellite signals and can also receive positioning data from Glonass satellites. This brings big advantages especially in an urban environment with many tall buildings and when driving next to high mountains. When using navigation with Apple CarPlay and Glonass you can benefit from this new improved compatibility.

Built-in Bluetooth® Technology

The built-in Bluetooth® module allows wireless connection of a mobile phone for hands-free communication. A very intuitive user interface makes it very easy to set microphone and speaker volume. It also includes a speed dial function for the most frequently called numbers. Bluetooth® also enables audio streaming from the phone: audio content or even internet radio can be wirelessly transferred to your Alpine unit.

Vehicle Data-Bus Connectivity

If your car is equipped with parking sensors, you can continue to use this convenient function with your iLX-702D. Alpine offers vehicle data-bus interfaces to connect your navigation system to your vehicle. This enables compatibility with your vehicle’s steering wheel control buttons, display of air conditioning settings as well parking sensor display. You can even see navigation turn-by-turn arrows in your multi-function display in the instrument cluster (if the vehicle supports it).

Drive-Assist Cameras

A rear view camera is a great way to make reversing safer. The camera image automatically comes on when you shift into reverse, and distance guides that can be adjusted to match your car size will appear on the screen to help you safely park your car. Alpine offers a wide variety of front and rear facing cameras, including multi-view cameras with selectable viewing angles and touch-control from your screen. You can even view the camera screen and parking sensor screen simultaneously.


Wouldn’t it be convenient to have an app that shows you all your favourite phone numbers, radio stations, frequent navigation destinations and more on a single glance?! Favourites is just that. Simply hold the audio button for one second to activate the Favourites view and you are ready to go.

Voice Control

Push the VOICE button on your Alpine unit or your steering wheel buttons (if supported) to activate SIRI or OK Google. You can simply call people, enter navigation destinations, write and send messages or simply say the song or playlist you like to listen to – just to name a few examples. This is a very convenient way to control your Alpine system while keeping your eyes on the road.

Installation Leads To complete the installation of an aftermarket headunit (eg. Kenwood, Parrot ASTEROID, Alpine, Pioneer, Sony, JVC etc.) you will usually require additional fitting accessories. You may require a facia adapter - single DIN or double DIN, aerial adaptor, ISO stereo adapter or a stalk/steering wheel adaptor if you want to integrate your steering wheel buttons. You can substitute the ISO stereo adapter lead for a steering wheel adapter, if one is available for your vehicle. If you purchase our Connects2 steering wheel adapter you don't need to purchase an ISO stereo adapter lead as well. Refer to our car stereo fitting accessory section to purchase your car specific accesories. We stock the full range of stereo fitting parts, just ask if you need help.
