Apple CarPlay™ for in-dash apps

Looking for a safe way to enjoy the best of your iPhone® while you drive? Alpine designed their iLX-007 digital media receiver to work specifically with Apple CarPlay, so you can access the apps you need without getting distracted from the matter at hand -- driving your car.

If you have an iPhone 5 or newer, you can hop into your car, connect your phone to the stereo, and use the sleek, easy-to-use interface to access the apps you need. The iLX-007 gives you fingertip or voice control of Apple apps like Maps, Music, Phone, Messages, and more. The 7" capacitive touchscreen works just like your tablet, so you'll feel right at home.

Drive smarter with Siri®

The beauty of Apple CarPlay is that it's designed for drivers. It puts important native iPhone functions on the screen, with familiar app icons that are large enough to be seen and tapped on the screen when you need them. Other info appears on the screen in big, easy-to-read text on a clean, clutter-free background.

You can also activate apps with Siri Hands Free voice commands, using the external microphone that's included with the receiver. Siri lets you make calls, compose texts, select tunes, and start navigation without taking your hands off the wheel. With Siri, you can place a call or compose a text with your voice. And Siri can read your incoming messages aloud to you.

Use your Maps app to get where you're going

Music and maps make travel more fun

This digital media receiver doesn't have a CD player, but with CarPlay, an AM/FM radio, and rear AUX and USB inputs, you'll never miss it. Browse your iPhone's music for playlists, songs, artists, and albums, or enjoy music apps, like iHeartRadio, Pandora, and Spotify®. You'll also see album art on the big screen.

If you need directions, launch the Maps app to find out how to reach the latest hot spot in town. Want to find the nearest donut shop? Just tell Siri. The big capacitive touchscreen allows you to pinch-to-zoom the map display, so you'll be able to pinpoint exactly where you need to be and, if need be, find a place to park.

Compact design, uncomplicated set-up

Since there's no CD player to take up space in the chassis, the iLX-007 is only about half as deep as most touchscreen receivers. That means it will fit into more dashboards with less work. It also means that custom installers can get seriously creative when they're designing your system.

You can access Apple CarPlay on this receiver using the same Lightning™ cable that came with your iPhone, or select aftermarket equivalents. Your iPhone is compatible with Apple CarPlay already, so there's no need to download any apps.

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.

Smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPhone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Alpine iLX-007 December-08-16
Reviewer: Anonymous person from Casselberry, FL  
As far as connecting your phone to your vehicle, Apple Car Play has it nailed. The Alpine iLX-007 makes it super easy to plug in your phone, control it from the beautiful 7" touch screen, get notifications of texts messages via voice, calls, your music apps such as Spotify, Pandora, etc. The SIRI integration is a life saver for when you need to get directions, look up songs, etc. without taking your eyes off the road.
Installation was a breeze. The small form factor of the head unit makes mounting super easy even in cramped dash cavities.
Overall I am very pleased wit this unit. Can't wait to add more to my system, backup camera etc. to see what else it can do.


 
Great replacement for my old factory unit October-30-16
Reviewer: Scott from Paducah, KY  
I bought this to replace my 10 year old Toyota Sequoia factory head unit.  I bought it for iphone capability/apple carplay, but it sounds much better as well.

Great unit. The only thing I don't like is having to run through steps to get to the display settings. Otherwise great product!!


 
Ok head unit August-25-16
Reviewer: Anonymous person from Vacaville, CA  
It has the cool factor for sure, sound quality is great while using Carplay app however, the actual radio (tuner) is awful. The volume buttons aren't easy to use and there's no bluetooth so when your phone's not plugged in your left with a poor quality radio and volume controls that aren't easy to use.

Reviewer: Scooby C from Raleigh,NC  
Installed last night & so far I'm not sure if I'm keeping it. The screen's picture is not adjustable & by default too bright & not enough contrast. You can't make out details in the maps very well. You need to have the parking brake on to adjust almost anything which there are a million confusing settings. The sound quality though is terrific the screen responds easily to touch.
