If you purchased a 1st generation Alpine Style system (X901D-xxx / X701D-xxx) and want to enjoy the benefits of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in your vehicle, we got a solution for you.
Instead of replacing the whole system, Alpine offers to only exchange the media box to get all new features of the 3rd generation Alpine Style systems.
Next to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, you get TomTom maps for 48 countries with 3 years are-of-charge updates, as well as a Glonass & GPS compatible navigation antenna. The 3rd generation features a much faster navigation CPU and larger system memory for smooth system operation. You can now also zoom in and out of the navigation map using finger pinch gestures.
This media-box includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto certified hardware to enables these important connectivity features in your vehicle. The new media box has the same measurements and connectors, so exchanging the box is fast and easy.
The innovative X903D-EX 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.
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 X903D-EX for improved accuracy when using the navi apps.
A navigation system is only as good as its map database: the X903D-EX includes TomTom maps for an awesome map coverage of 48 European countries. Within 3 years after the first navigation fix, you can go to alpine.naviextras.com to download map updates free of charge for your Alpine unit – you can even do so without any limitation on how often you update. After 3 years have passed, you can download regional map packages or the full European map update based on your needs for very reasonable cost.
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 Android Auto you can also benefit from this new improved compatibility.
