More than just a great-sounding stereo with GPS
Alpine's INE-W960 navigation receiver doesn't just deliver stellar guidance and fill your vehicle with hard-hitting music — it's also a full-featured multimedia marvel, offering first-class in-dash performance at a value-oriented price. You'll find its 6.1" touchscreen display makes a convenient portal to all your music sources, including those discs you've been hanging on to for a while. And you'll have plenty of opportunities to bring your smartphone into the mix, both for communication and for road-friendly app use.
Hit the road with confidence
Alpine's navigation features start with detailed maps for the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You'll hear spoken directions with actual street names announced at turns. As you approach your next maneuver, the map automatically zooms to give you a better view. You can even change the display to show 3D terrain views or to incorporate 3D representations of buildings and landmarks. Lane guidance and junction view provide additional assurance for complicated interchanges.
Get more mileage from your smartphone
Take control of your phone with the INE-W960's built-in Bluetooth. You can talk through your compatible phone and keep your hands on the wheel. Pairing is convenient, and you can control phone functions through the receiver's display, including accessing your favourite contacts. Alpine's external microphone with noise cancellation lets your callers hear you loud and clear. If you've got music on your smartphone or other Bluetooth device, you can stream it to the receiver wirelessly.
If you've got an iPod or iPhone, you'll enjoy control of the iPod functions through the receiver, including rapid search functions. And it'll even work with the newer iPhone models with Lightning™ connections, except for their video features.
Take Pandora® Internet radio for a ride
Take your Pandora stations with you — run the free Pandora app on your phone and control it from the INEW-960's touchscreen. You can skip tracks, change stations, and thumbs up/thumbs down songs just like you do online. For the iPhone, you'll need a USB or Bluetooth connection; Android phones control Pandora via Bluetooth.
Entertainment options and sonic solutions
If you're a satellite radio fan, you can add SiriusXM reception to this Alpine with an optional tuner and your subscription. You can load up a thumb drive with your favourite digital music files and play them through the INE-W960's rear USB input.
The receiver's 24-bit digital-to-analog converter provides excellent sonic reproduction for all your CDs and digital media sources, while the Time Correction feature lets you focus the stereo image for the driver's seat. Alpine's MediaXpander Pro technology makes your compressed audio sources sound as good as possible. Plus, you can customize the sound for your vehicle, including upholstery type, number of speakers, and speaker locations, for the optimum tuning settings.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.
