Alpine’s amazing new way to go BIG in your dash
Alpine’s known for being on the cutting edge of stereo design, but for this SiLX-F309 digital multimedia receiver, they actually borrowed an idea from some newer vehicles — an interface which “floats” on top of other dash controls. Only they went way bigger than anything else out there. The Alpine Halo9 boasts a monster 9″ floating capacities touchscreen to give you plenty of information at a glance. And it’s adjustable so you can keep climate controls accessible. Single-DIN (2″ tall) dash owners rejoice — this stereo’s designed to go into most dash openings, even for many older cars. Add Alpine’s trademark sonic capabilities and smartphone integration, and you’ve got a real humdinger on your hands.
Get the best view
Once you’ve determined the best vertical position for the display, you also have the option of changing the screen viewing angle up to 45 degrees forward or 20 degrees backward. This allows you to accommodate for angled dashes or just to get a better look at your SiLX-F309’s display, depending on its position in your dash. After you’ve chosen the best positions, four screws hold the display safely in place as you interact with it.
Just about everything you need
There’s no disc player in the Alpine Halo9, but it does include several ways to enjoy your media. You can use the rear USB pigtail to attach your smartphone or a thumb drive with your favorite music or video files, or just get to your phone’s audio quickly with the auxiliary input. If you’ve got an optional CD/DVD or Blu-Ray Disc™ player, there’s a rear HDMI connection. Rear-view camera owners will appreciate the included camera input and distance guidance display. A GPS antenna enhances your phone’s navigation functionality.
Alpine’s been on the Bluetooth train for a long time, and the SiLX-F309’s no different. Use it to make or receive hands-free phone calls via your smartphone with the included microphone, or stream music from your phone with ease. You can also use the included microphone to activate voice commands for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Alpine Halo9 supports CarPlay —it integrates your iPhone® into the driving experience with a seamless interface, putting iPhone content at the driver’s fingertips with minimal distraction. You’ll enjoy easy access to your music library, your phone, messages, navigation, and many third-party streaming music apps, too. Learn more at www.apple.com/ios/carplay. As an added bonus, you can access Siri Eyes Free functionality with a touch of the receiver’s mic button, using your voice to place calls, select music, hear notification, add reminders — even compose and listen to text messages.
If you’re an Android fan, you’ll love how Android Auto integrates the Android platform into your driving experience in a non-distracting way. You’ll have voice control access to Google Maps, weather, music, your phone, text messages, plus easy access to many of your favorite apps.
