Loaded with features and ready to roll
If you're in the hunt for a do-it-all car stereo, look no further than Alpine's CDE-HD149BT CD receiver. It packs a serious sonic punch and you'll also get features like an HD Radio® tuner, built-in Bluetooth®, and Pandora® Internet radio control, too. Alpine's user-friendly controls round out the package, with an innovative new smartphone-based app for tuning your system.
Sound control, just a swipe away
Alpine puts pro-level audio tuning in the palm of your hand with the Alpine TuneIt App, an award-winning smartphone app designed exclusively for select Alpine receivers. Download the free app onto your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone, and you can create a user profile with information specific to you, your vehicle, and your Alpine system. Then it's a simple matter to import sound settings for your car from 3,000 options in Alpine's database, or use the app to adjust the receiver's time correction feature, 9-band parametric equalizer, frequency filters, and Media Xpander yourself. Save up to 100 different sound settings — whatever you want to match your music or taste. Alpine TuneIt App even lets you create a profile on Facebook so you can share settings with other users.
Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and audio streaming
If you don't have Bluetooth in your car, you'll love the capabilities the CDE-HD149BT offers. No more fumbling for your phone when you get a call — pair your Bluetooth equipped phone with the receiver and you'll talk hands-free when you get a call. And since the receiver imports your phonebook, outgoing calls are easy to place too. If you store music or stream audio programming on your smartphone, you'll be able to listen over your car's audio system without any wires — simply select Bluetooth Audio as your source and tap into all the content you enjoy.
Built-in HD Radio™ with iTunes® tagging
Alpine's HD Radio tuner lets you tune in digital AM/FM broadcasts, significantly pumping up the sound quality. Participating FM stations sound about as good as a CD, while AM stations offer enhanced reception similar to traditional FM. Plus, when you connect your iPod® and tune into an HD Radio station, you can "tag" songs you like for later purchase from the iTunes® store.
Pandora® in your car
Your smartphone and the free Pandora app are the key to enjoying the variety of musical options available on Pandora. Android and BlackBerry® users get full control through the Bluetooth connection, while iPhone lovers just plug in through the USB port. You can change stations, skip tracks, and rate songs just like you do online.
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.
