AUBURN HILLS, MI (02.25.2021) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the iLX-F409 Alpine Halo9 Multimedia Receiver with a 9-inch, customizable touchscreen display. The new receiver is the culmination of the Alpine Halo Display lineup.
Beyond Factory Technology
The Alpine Halo display platform is known for its oversized, “floating” screen and versatile installation into virtually any vehicle. The sleek, tapered edges outlined in a silver trim, along with smartphone integration capability, modernizes the technology in any dash that can house a single-DIN receiver.
The launch of the iLX-F409 and the iLX-F411 signals a new generation of the Alpine Halo models that are a culmination of all the fan-favorite features, including customizable home screens, media expandability with HDMI connectivity, and iDatalink Maestro Module compatibility.
Features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and built-in Bluetooth hands-free calling with audio streaming allows access to your music, messages, phone calls, and maps on your smartphone via USB. These features are controlled through touch or voice commands with the included external microphone. SiriusXM Radio is available with an optional tuner and paid subscription for even more music and entertainment on your drive.
Upgrading dash technology can often result in a loss of factory functionality, such as steering wheel controls and access to engine codes. However, the iLX-F409 is compatible with the iDatalink Maestro Module (sold separately) allowing select OEM features to be retained and vehicle information displayed on the 9-inch screen.
A reverse RCA camera input is included so you can add a rearview camera (sold separately) that overlays guidelines onto the screen for ease when moving in reverse. Additional cameras can be added with the KCX-C2600B Universal Front and Rear Camera Selector (sold separately).
While the iLX-F409 is mech-less (no CD/DVD player) an HDMI input and output is included so you can connect a CD, DVD player, or even your smartphone for an all-digital audio and video connection through a single cable.
The iLX-F409 is now shipping at a MAP of $699.95 and will be available at Alpine Authorized retailers and at Preferred Online Stores. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.
