Stay connected on the go
We've long recommended Alpine receivers to anyone looking for great sound and solid performance. Now, with their ICS-X7HD digital media receiver, they've given you smartphone junkies and digital-media aficionados a receiver that speaks your language. Not only will it connect to your iPhone® or Android™ phone to take advantage of apps you've loaded, it also comes with built-in Bluetooth® that lets you make hands-free calls and stream music wirelessly. If your phone is equipped with Siri® Eyes Free technology, anything you can do with Siri can be done with the ICS-X7HD. To top it off, its built-in HD Radio™ tuner allows you to enjoy vastly-improved sound quality from participating local AM and FM stations.
The Favorites menu (on the left) lets you access your preferred contacts, sources, and stations quickly.
All of your favorites at your fingertips
Alpine's "Favorites" button on the ICS-X7HD saves your personal preferences, giving you quick access to the features you use the most. For example, you could enter a local FM station, the receiver's 9-band equalizer, a Pandora Internet radio station, your home phone number, and a SiriusXM channel for your Favorites. This feature ties into your Bluetooth profile so the receiver will pull up your settings when you're driving, then switch to the Favorites of other family members when they're at the wheel.
MirrorLink™ connectivity for Android phones
Alpine offers something for Android users too. With the help of an app, MirrorLink shows a simplified image of your smartphone's display on the Alpine, so you can control music stored on your phone, your navigation app, phone calls, and much more. The apps show up big as life on the receiver's 7" screen, so you can concentrate on the driving instead of squinting at your phone. This Alpine works with the Samsung® Galaxy S3.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Alpine stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the ICS-X7HD, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
