Alpine INA-W910

Maps and free lifetime traffic

Find your way to your destination with ease — the INA-W910 comes equipped with maps of the U.S. and Canada, featuring spoken, turn-by-turn directions. Alpine's GuideView™ gives you a picture-in-picture window so you can keep track of the next turn or the local speed limit while you're playing tunes from your iPod® or PANDORA®. Plus you'll get a free lifetime traffic subscription, which lets you know if traffic's backed up along your drive, and recalculates your route as needed.


Play PANDORA®, plus enjoy your iPod and iPhone®

Millions of people love PANDORA®, and the INA-W910 lets you enjoy it on its big 7" screen. First, you need to download a free PANDORA® iPhone app, then connect your iPhone to the receiver's USB input. Then you can select PANDORA® as a source and use the receiver's controls to navigate your stations. You'll see album art and song info, and you can rate songs with a "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" so that PANDORA® knows what music to play for you. Plus you can create a new station on the fly — when PANDORA® plays a song you like, you can create a station based upon that song or artist with a tap of the screen.

Enjoy album art from your iPod or iPhone, plus use the INA-W910's screen to navigate your music library. You also can switch control to the iPod itself so a passenger can pick the tunes without leaning over the seat.

If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Hands-on Research" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

Enjoy crystal-clear HD Radio™

Alpine built an HD Radio tuner into the INA-W910, giving you access to static-free, all-digital AM/FM HD Radio broadcasts. Traditional FM sounds near CD-quality, while AM sounds more like traditional FM. Many stations broadcast alternative programming on a secondary frequency, giving you even more options. And with your iPod connected, you can "tag" songs you like on HD Radio stations for purchasing later in the iTunes™ store.

INA-W910 Bluetooth

Talk hands free

Built-in Bluetooth® from industry leader Parrot lets you make and receive calls from the INA-W910's touchscreen. You can adjust the gain on the echo-canceling mic so your callers can hear you loud and clear. Your maps stay up on the screen while you talk, and you can even configure the INA-W910 to announce a turn while you're talking.

Bluetooth note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

Add SiriusXM Satellite Radio

The INA-W910 works with SiriusXM's SXV200 XM tuner, which is about the size of a deck of cards and connects directly to the receiver. Once connected, you can pause and rewind live broadcasts, plus get a heads up when your favorite artists or teams are playing on another channel. And with an iPod connected, you can tag songs for purchasing later in the iTunes™ store. An XM subscription is required.

Wicked sound

A digital-to-analog converter (DAC) turns the digital information stored on your CDs and in your music files back into music. This Alpine receiver uses a Burr-Brown 24-bit DAC, universally recognized for its smooth, superior sound. If sound quality's important to you, you'll really appreciate this receiver's performance, especially if you're building a full audio system in your vehicle.

You can dial in the perfect tone for your vehicle with the robust 7-band EQ. If you plan to add on, three sets of high-powered, 4-volt preamp outputs send a clean signal to your amps and subs. For the ultimate in sound tweaking, the INA-W910 works with Alpine's PXA-H800 audio processor.

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 INA-W910, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Overall not a bad product but could use a little work.Easy install & setup with included materials.At a lower price point it is worth buying but not at a retail price.

    Pros: Music sounds great,easy to select functions.Speakerphone works great.

    Cons: Navigation is slow,not always accurate.While driving it will say you are on the wrong road & not respond fast enough in turns.Sometimes takes a long time to get accurate gps signal.My old Pioneer Z3 had better nav system.No hard buttons for song up & down or channel up & down.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Bought this for a 800W all-Alpine system I installed in my 2011 FX2 F150. Use the iPod integration mostly. Overall, SQ is good, mids are a bit harse with the Alpine Type-R's in the doors. Don't use the expander it's awful what it does to SQ. The HD radio is okay, I have problems with stations constanly dropping though and yes my antenna is correctly installed. My main beef with this unit is the NAV. Missing streets, No street detail in map except at high zoom. S L O W scrolling. Can't find rural addresses. And above all else ZERO support from Alpine on this unit as far as updates. The NAV is actually telling me now that I need to go to and download an update and there is none, zero, zilch, nada on their "support" site even though this unit is 2 years old. Apparently Alpine's soultion for any problems you have is to ditch what you have regardless of how new it is and buy whatever the latest is.

    Pros: SQ generally good

    Cons: NAV. No support

    This receiver is very well equipt. Easy to navigate and excellent picture! Well worth the price, and a satusfited purchaser.

    Pros: Screen size Picture Quality Versatile Easy Navigation I enjoy the mini navigation on the home screen. Enough outputs and inputs iPod integatration charges iPod w/out additional adaptator

    Cons: Navigation less detailed and without images than previous models. Media file playback skeptical. iPod integration utilizes the USB and aux port. Previous models have it separated. Equalizer range is short

    Good (not great) product

    Written By MichaelC, Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, June 06, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Overall this is a good unit. Installation was pretty straight-forward. Main reason I purchased this instead of a newer Alpine A/V unit is because it still has Ai-Net functionality, but I was disappointed to find out after installation that it is not compatible with some of my existing Ai-Net devices. Navigation is a bit slower than expected, but otherwise seems accurate. There isn't as many sound tuning features as my older Alpine in-dash CD player, so I'm contemplating adding a sound processor. I'm not used to the lack of a rotary knob for volume control, but expect that I'll eventually get used to it. I wish there was a way to turn off the internal amplifier since the unit does get warm. I'm hoping that Alpine will release a firmware upgrade and navigation upgrade to improve on features.

    Pros: Vibrant screen; built-in HD radio, dvd, bluetooth, back-up camera and navigation in a single unit.

    Cons: Navigation is slower than expected and graphics are dated; zooming in and out of navigation is slow and requires reloading of map; not as many sound tuning features; no ability to switch to a QWERTY keyboard layout; not compatible with some older Ai-Net devices; no bluetooth audio streaming; the RCA wiring harness seem a bit flimsy; no way to turn off internal amplifier; poor AM reception.

    Excellent product, I've had a lot of DVD decks over the years, and this is by far the best. It's loaded with GPS, Bluetooth, HD radio, and much more. Install and set-up was a breeze, menu is easy to navigate and all the options you need to be able to adjust are there for you.

    The installation went great, the stereo is great, the NAV functions work fine and fast, the stereo sounds great. No problems, looks beautiful as well, and easy to use.

    Had this unit for about 1.5yrs. Nothing works anymore? $400.00+ to fix it? What? Slowly everything has stopped working, Auxiliary inputs, dvd player, blue Tooth, USB/IPOD input. Yup just a very expensive stereo.

    Pros: Can't think of any

    GPS Issues

    Written By DavidB, Chugiak AK on Monday, October 22, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have gone back to using my Garmin Nuvi GPS. While large, the display is low resolution and doesn't show all the road details my Nuvi does, doesn't show your altitude, the speed limit of the road, or my speed for example. Bigger issue I am finding with Alpine is the lack of updates. I have a 2003 Jaguar XK8 with the ($2,500 option) factory Alpine built in navigation, They only had one update in 2005.... Jaguar says talk to Alpine, Alpine says talk to Navteq (who supplies maps to Alpine and Garmin) and Navteq says talk to Jaguar or Alpine.... pointing fingers at each other... and so far while I have had several upgrades to my software on my Garmin units, none so far for this Alpine unit. So.... if history says anything, Alpine doesn't support what they sell when it comes to navigation updates.. we will see.........

    Pros: Happy with the iPod integration

    Cons: GPS is poor and minimal, possible there will be few if any updates..

    Great for the price

    Written By Birdman, Lynnfield ma on Tuesday, October 16, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have used this unit for three weeks and its very easy to use and set up. Screen brightness is easily adjusted as well as all the source levels. GPS is boots up quick but tends to take you the long route to get somewhere. Audio sound is fantastic as expected with Alpine. iPod connection works does Bluetooth and backup camera. Overall very nice unit so far after three weeks.

    Pros: Screen responsiveness video clarity audio sound quality iPod control connections for camera and sound processor sold seperately. Sturdy durable feel to screen and buttons.

    Cons: GPS likes to navigate longest route...traffic updates just not up to snuff.

    What a joke!

    Written By Mark, nj on Monday, October 15, 2012

    This unit is simply a joke for a 2012 model! No Bluetooth audio? The other 6" version has it! And you call this a flagship model?

    Maps are horrible and slow! The only decent thing about it is sound quality. Now that I have the iPhone 5 I can't use the 30 pin connector or stream via BT. I shouldn't have to pay $29 for Apple's adapter that may or may not work.

    Pros: Audio controls. Sound quality.


    Tears of regret

    Written By Scott, Mass on Sunday, October 07, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Like many other reviews here, an expensive mistake. I'm amazed at the 5 star reviews. Yes it sounds great but functionality is strangely awful. I bought this to consolidate music, nav, back up cam and Ipod. It certainly accomplished that but it was NOT WORTH the money. The navigation is slow, ugly and often times just plain wrong when trying to enter street names. In addition, I've had it freeze up, one speaker channel randomly goes out and out of nowhere satellite radio audio is not working.

    Pros: Audio quality

    Cons: Everything else. No really I'm not kidding. DO NOT BUY THIS

    What a joke Alpine!

    Written By Mark H, NJ on Tuesday, July 24, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    For being in 2012, this unit lacks a lot. Performance of this unit is slow. You have to wait for the map to reload when zooming in and out. No bluetooth audio streaming. Video quality is average at best. Why is there no clock on the map view? Quality of maps reminds me of playing Mario Brothers on Nintendo.

    Pros: Audio menu and features are great.

    Cons: Slow map loading. No clock in map view. No bluetooth audio. Average video and map quality.

    Alpine Head Unit

    Written By Walt, Tampa, FL on Wednesday, July 11, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Works great in my 2012 Kia Soul. The head unit does use a 5 band parametric eq and does have a limited amout of time alignment. The sound quality from this head unit is great off of the AI net and sounds even better through the fiber optic cable and a H701.

    Pros: Nice screen, well designed, and a solid multimedia unit. It is nice having a all in one head unit with CD MP3 HD radio bluetooth and navigation all one unit.

    Cons: I removing one star from the rating because the Nav is slower than most but still works really well. Also to set the clock in the radio you have to go through the NAV setup because it keeps it's time through the GPS. It much better the NVE-P1 but is still not as good as the garmin units.

    Fantastic Head Unit

    Written By PGBollwerk, San Ramon, CA on Tuesday, July 10, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Upgraded to this from an Alpine IVA-W200. I picked this instead of the newer 2012 models because they did away with AI-Net and Optical/Digital output in 2012 units. I love the sound quality of this unit and all the features. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because you have to buy a proprietary Alpine Optical cable to use the digital output (it converts a 4 pin connector to Toslink).

    Pros: Features, sound quality, screen, interface

    Cons: Traffic info on Navigation isn't as complete or robust as something like Google Maps. Optical/Digital output requires an expensive Alpine cable.

    I been using Alpine for many years for my car audio and i decide get new one for my 2010 Camaro. Very disappointed on Bluetooth technology they should include Audio Bluetooth in today's technology. Sound quality is somewhat disappointed, but exceptable.

    Expensive Mistake

    Written By Brad, Allen, Texas on Thursday, May 03, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    OK folks, I'm not going to write a book here because the features and functionality of this unit have been well covered already. What I am going to say that I cannot believe that anybody who actually purchased and installed this unit could ever rate it 5 stars with a straight face. The navi is so bad and so ugly that the very good sound, good blue tooth, and excellent i-pod interface don't even come close to making it worth the money. And no, despite what others have said, it does not work ANYTHING like a modern Garmin unit. In fact, I've gone back to using my windshield mounted Garmin for navi and use this unit only as a (very expensive) radio and i-pod player. The resolution is horrible, level of detail is horrible (it often doesn't even display the name of street you're driving on let alone the ones you're approaching), no speed display on the main screen, and no heading/compass information on the main screen so you can't even use bearing info to re-orient yourself if you get lost. The main screen does display a North arrow which is nearly worthless. Route calculation is slow and often faulty. All of the negative comments in regards to the navi are spot on. Wish I could get my money back.....

    Pros: Good audio, very good blue tooth, very good i-pod interface. VERY FAST BOOT TO BACK UP CAMERA!

    Cons: Navi is so bad you'll want your money back

    Alpine INA-W910

    Written By Allan, Saint Cloud, Florida on Sunday, April 22, 2012

    I've done alot of research before making this purchase because of the price, I stayed with Alpine because of the excellent past expierance with the product. the unit workes great & fully enjoy all the different operations that it has to offer. I have to say this be careful on reading cust. reviews, everybody has there own appinion on what they concider good & bad, I'm still learning all it has to offer it does take some time and remindes me of any computer devises you just have to get in there & use it to get familiar with the system, GPS is simple & works like my Garmin & is not slow like i read in the reviews, love my i-pod operation, and really enjoy my bluetooth even with my cheap phone and havent mis any calls also all my callers remarked how good it sounds talking to me. The install took about half a day because of the type of vehicle and adding a KTP-445 amp to harness & all the mods, strongly suggest reading the instructions & calling tech support with any questions to make a good install, oh ya tech support is alsome! Very friendly & supportive and has your answers. Its been only a month into it and had no problems, i now enjoy taking trips with my car & look forward to windshield time. Note, if you are looking for a simple radio this is not for you

    Pros: Good GPS, Bluetooth works great, Love my i-pod operation, screen display clarity good, DVD playback is alsome & makes you feel like your in the theater.

    Cons: During my install found GPS antenna to be on the short side & had to mount it off to the side of my roof, not fond of radio station operations.

    Worst navigation ever

    Written By back to nuvi, connecticut on Sunday, March 18, 2012

    The worst navigation I have ever seen. When I was in Manhattan, within 15 blocks of my destination, the unit told me to continue past the destination, leave Manhattan via the queens-midtown tunnel, and return to manhattan via the triborough bridge. On another route, I am told to enter route 9 at exit 5. If I take a local shortcut and enter route 9 at exit 6 (1 exit north of exit 5), the nav unit then tells me to get on route 9 at exit 6, go south to exit 5, re-enter the highway at exit 5, and return north, back through exit 6. This is all after paying for the map and software update.

    Cons: worst navigation ever, User interface on the autio portion is also poor

    Bad Nav, bad iPhone interface, inconsistent

    Written By JB, Springfield, NJ on Saturday, March 17, 2012

    Terrible, terrible unit. I've been an Alpine fan for more. Pairing with my phone is hit and miss, Pandora functionality isn't ready for prime time and the Nav system is the absolute worst I've seen. The receiver/amp is good, but that's to be expected for the price of this unit. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT!

    Gets worse by the day! I'm growing to hate this thing.

    Written By mandingo, Atlnta on Wednesday, March 14, 2012

    I could tolerate the nav for a while now I just hate this unit. And since Kenwood's new Excelon line with its much speedier DNX9990 I'm going to chalk this up to an expensive mistake. I listen to streamed audio online (I live in ATL but grew up on BOS so I love to stream WEEI for their sports talk so I don't have to listen to the idiotic rants of Tech vs Dogs fans) but EVERY time I want to I have to unplug my Touch and plug in my iPhone. Every time. Other audio functions are just fine and the sound is excellent. BUT!!! the navi is the absolute dumps. It's choppy as it scrolls, not smooth. Street names that are right in front of you on the road may or may not appear on the navi. Once you find a destination, it calculates it and again you have to hit the screen to start navigation. And every single time you want to switch something out and go back to a new destination you get that warning. Way too many prompts to do simple things. And that preposterous emergency brake down, foot brake down, emergency brake up...YIKES!!!!! Enough already. Wanted to love it. Grown to hate it. Kenwood Excelon 9990HD here I come.

    Pros: Excellent sound. Very quick bootup which is critical if you have a backup camera. Fairly simple GUI.

    Cons: Awful navi. Useless remote control. Awful navi. Too many prompts. Awful navi. Crazy process for getting to settings menu. Awful navi.

    Great receiver, stops there

    Written By david, Frederick, MD on Saturday, March 10, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is an incomplete product. If all you want is a decent HD radio, then this may for you. It has good sensitivity and works well. It could use a few more features (like content search and better display of Tags), but it's ok.

    But, that's where Alpine stopped. The user interface is primitive - it's a touch screen, but very basic. They don't take advantage of screen real estate and everything is done with arrows instead of including drag. The background display is ugly and there is no control over it other than a few basic colors. The DVD and Nav functions are also very basic. The Nav's time of arrival estimates are way off (if I drove 5-10 mph under the speed limit, I'd probably still get there before sooner), the map display is low resolution and there's no control over detail (not nearly enough roads are shown for the map to be useful), and it's routing is not very good. The route that it selected for a 150 mile trip would have taken me 20-30 mins longer than the one chosen by my old Garmin Nuvi that it was supposed to replace.

    It's over "nannied". Instead of just an emergency brake interlock on video (very understandable), you have to do a dance with the break pedal and the emergency brake not only to get video, but also many of the setup menus! Including simple things like screen brightness!

    And it is very bright -- I found that I couldn't drive with it at night even with it fully dimmed.

    Pros: Great HD radio.

    Cons: Everything else (Alpine stopped there).

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My Alpine INA-W910 has been a mixed blessing. I had two problems quickly resolved by Crutchfield support. The Interface (scoche) was defective, second the unit it self had a software problem. All has been resolved, the unit works as intended however the nav program works at best poorly. The US and Canada are supposed to be in the unit, no so. Very little of Canada is in it. Under places there is no mention of ski, skiing and related resorts. Tremblant, Ca. an over fifty year ski area is not to be found. Locating places is mostly ,non intuitive. My $40.00 Garmin NUVI works far better. In fact had I known that the Nav end worked this bad I would not have purchased the unit. Changind "bands" awkward, no speed on display,

    Pros: Super easy setup for Bluetooth, nice display

    Cons: Needs larger CD/DVD capacity, sound quality not much better than oem radio, display would be better if it tracking with factory dash dimmer,

    Great audio but funtionality falls short

    Written By JD, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, January 25, 2012

    I have a 2010 Honda Element. And overall, I'm OK with this unit. But there are areas that seem to repeatedly come up short. As a sound system, I have no complaints. I bought this unit with Alpine's power pack, Alpine components for the front door and pillar tweeter, Alpine coaxials for the back, and an Infinty Bass Link powered sub. The sound with that setup is incredible compared to the stock system. But once you move beyond the great audio, then the little things begin to add up and my overall impression starts to fade. The screen is nice and bright and responds well to the touch. But the unit seems to lack an intuitive menu structure. Things seem haphazardly thrown together and some settings are in places that you forget where the heck they are the next time you go back to adjust it. I haven't put much to the test on this unit. I've played audio CD's and currently run with an 8gb USB drive. I have this drive set on random play and some songs won't play out to the very end. Other songs skip. Maybe it's the thumb drive I don't know. But this exact songlist played fine on my Garmin Nuvi. So speaking of NAV, it comes up way short. This is by no means a Garmin. At times it tells you turn when it's too late. At times, it won't tell you to turn at all. And other times it tells you to turn when the road you are on curves one way or the other. The dashboard feature is really cool, but there is no time of day clock. Destination searches can frustrate.

    Pros: Great audio with the power pack. Nice no frills display. Very quick boot up. Map display crisp and nice. In screen compass/street while playing audio. Rear camera interface has nice video.

    Cons: Cumbersome settings menus. Difficult searching or entering addresses. Nav will continue to try to get you back on course without recalculating another route. It goes on for 10 miles sometimes. My Garmin wasn't perfect, but much better at this. It doesn't leave me confident about 'jumping the tracks' to avoid a jam up. This NAV really seems to lack intelligence. A call to tech support was futile. No updates due for a year. Of course, you have to pay for that.

    Love how it sounds with the power pack!

While you are listening to say HD radio, the only buttons to change channel are on a little bar at the bottom. they could have used alot more of the display as buttons and options. the satellite radio menu is confusing.

    Pros: Great sound with the alpine power pack! Nice big touchscreen. Plenty of inputs and outputs. Built in GPS. Almost instant loading from I-pod.

    Cons: Button bar needs to be redone to use the whole screen for buttons. Slightly confusing sattelite radio configuration.

    Sounds great, GPS is AWFUL!!!

    Written By Chris R, Robbinsville, NJ on Sunday, January 08, 2012

    The navigation is terrible. It is wrong 9 out of 10 times. It will say you are there when you are nowhere close. Always gives ridiculously long, out of the way routes. Don't buy for the GPS unit, my 6 year old $100 Magellan is way better.

    Only worth the money if you want to hook up an Iphone

    Pros: The sound quality is excellent through my Toyota Highlander stock JBL sound system.

    Cons: NAVIGATION IS AWFUL!!!, Doesn't work with Droid Pandora, No Bluetooth Audio

    Everything works GREAT for me

    I installed mine with the Alpine 45W amp, backup camera & SiriusXM in my Ford E250 work van. Total install time was almost 14 hours to do it right. I LOVE the results. I also put in a powered sub behind the drivers seat and new 5x7 JL Audio speakers in the front and rear doors. Everything came UPS the very next day and I am thrilled with the results. Bluetooth works with my Blackberry, XM works great (and so far without a subscription!), Pandora works off my ipod with a T Mobile wifi hotspot, Itunes never sounded better and the rearview camera is awesome. I had to make my own extension for the Alpine camera though, as the wires sent were not long enough to reach the back of a full sized van. The nav is not top of the line but certainly gets you where you are going and the traffic updates without commercials is great. I highly recommend this unit.

    Pros: Everything it promises it delivers.

    Just what I was looking for...

    Written By Volocty, Simi Valley, CA USA on Tuesday, December 27, 2011

    Glad I waited. The Alpine INA-W910 in-dash unit delivers what I was looking for. The HD radio, Bluetooth, GPS, Movie, and iPod functions all work as they should. My favorite is the Pandora Radio connection; it just makes listening to Internet radio a breeze. The truly best part is the how all of the interfaces function together. The unit's interface is very simple and even though some have complained about the size of the on-screen characters, I love it for its easy glance-at functionality. The GPS unit functions as advertised; I have not had any issues. The map's on-screen adjustable look can be tailored to your taste and is not overly-bright at night, which is one thing I was very concerned about. The text-to-speech driving commands are not the best; the system does have issues pronouncing street names. One small issue is that the unit is a little bigger than the old unit, so it doesn't sit flush in the dash, protrudes about ½ an inch, it's just something I got used to. I did look at both of the similar Pioneer and Kenwood units, and am still very happy I choose the Alpine. If you get a chance, try to see it in action at your local Car Audio store, playing with it next to the other units sold me on this one.

    Pros: The interface and screen are great. Pandora radio is awesome.

    Cons: GPS Text-to-speech is not as clear as it should be.

    Superbly simple. Navi is one of the worst interfaces I've ever seen.

    Written By ginomorpheus, Raleigh, NC on Tuesday, December 27, 2011

    My Kenwood Excelon DDX 8120 was a bi-polar dream/nightmare. The Garmin was superb and it could do everything except make toast. But everything on it went absolutely haywire...from the panel buttons burning out to the external navi box failing to the system constantly rebooting. While I desperately wanted to love it, it had to go like a jealous girlfriend. So I replaced it with this Alpine and far, everything works as advertised. Yes, having no A2DP bluetooth is a major bummer and step back, but everything else works well. The navi, though, is the worst looking graphically I've seen in virtually any vehicle. I've seen OEM navi in my brother's Sonata that blew this away. You can be close to streets and it doesn't post their names. You can't pan the map, just zoom or wide angle. All considered, as long as it keeps working, I'm pleased though not blown away. A reliable Kenwood with its Garmin would make this look like playtime. But I'm reading that even the new Kenwoods are riddled with bugs. So I'm keeping my Alpine.

    Pros: Extremely intuitive interface with buttons on the front panel that lend a tactile advantage to simple tasks. Always-on traffic without adverts is a great plus. Excellent sound quality.

    Cons: Navigation is simplistic at best - looks like a child with crayons. Owned a Kenwood Excelon DDX-8120 with the add-on Garmin whose graphics put this to shame and allowed map repositioning using its touch screen or remote - this offers neither capability.

    Alpine INA-W910

    Written By Ed, New Jersey on Saturday, December 17, 2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've had it installed for about two weeks now. In my previous truck I had an older Alpine double-DIN that lacked built-in bluetooth and navigation.

    Haven't tried ipod controls but bluetooth works fine,paired with my iphone 4s with no problems. I noticed a slight issue with Pandora controls,once in a while the station/artist info and station list are blank,then appears maybe 30 seconds after,though it may be Pandora or the app itself causing this.

    RCA output level seems low. First I thought I had a faulty sub amp,swapped it,and even connected it to the front then rear RCAs and the same,had to set the gains rather high and sub level at max (15),still trying to figure this out and I'm not happy at the moment. I'm powering the stock front and rear door speakers with the head unit itself.

    Navigation is still not up to par with OEM or dedicated unit like Garmin. My 4-year old Nuvi has more natural sounding voices (Alpine only has one very robotic sounding) and the graphics aren't very detailed compared to my friend's new Nuvi or the current OEMs like Lexus.

    Cons: Subwoofer RCA output does not have a crossover and seems to lack output.

    Improve but still needs work.

    I wish Alpine would give you the choice to turn off MX xpander and use plain old loudness . The MX gives sound a harshness and unnatural sound . Also would like to see Ipod control to be a little faster, when skiping from one track to another it takes a little to long for the next song to load.

    Pros: Easy to use , great bluetooth. Much improve installation than the 900BT ( all build in bluetooth,imprint and satellite , with new adapter.

    Cons: Bluetooth does not have streaming , the sound which is what I always like about alpine units is horrible because of MX expander , it gives sound a harshness , and it makes bass sound hard and unnatural.

    Great Product - No BT Audio

    Written By Mike M, Albuquerque, NM on Sunday, November 27, 2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this unit because it was the highest rated unit out of all the reviews that I read and I figured it had everything that I was looking for based on what the older unit had and the improvements I read about on this one. I was able to install it in less than 2 days with the help of the installation guide and parts from Crutchfield.

    The INA-W900BT (or the older model) has the BT audio, so I thought that the bluetooth module included in the "next model up" would be identical, but just inside the unit. The answer is "no." The module inside the INA-W910 includes hands free calling, but no bluetooth audio. Which means you can make calls from your phone but you have to physically hook your phone to the unit via usb or phono plug to listen to the MP3's or pandora from the phone. That was the one thing I was looking for besides the other bells and whistles provided.

    Other than that rant, I am very satisfied with the unit based on it's other capabilities. If BT audio is not a concern, please buy this product.

    Pros: System is very responsive. The sound is great. The menus work pretty well. The USB interface charges my phone while it's playing the music. I can pause and rewind XM from the unit just like my old external Delphi unit that I am replacing with this one.

    Cons: The system had everything I was looking for except bluetooth audio. (BUMMER!)


    Written By Rachel, Danbury, CT on Monday, November 21, 2011

    Two words best describe this unit:simplicity and intelligent. Aesthetically, this product is very clean looking and stream line. Not a lot of bells and whistles, just a great well developed product with a lot of common sense. Sound quality is amazingly clear and very customizable. Very easy to use while on the go. Boots up fast and does everything you want at the simple touch of a button. Video quality is like none I have ever seen. All the advanced built in features make this piece convenient and highly recommended for any audio/video enthusiast.

    Pros: I love how "simple" the design is. VERY easy to navigate; the menus and options are conveniently laid out and are very easy to change. Alpine really considered ease of use for the driver when designing this piece. My favorite feature is the mini navigation screen that displays turn by turn directions while viewing the any audio screen. It is fantastic not have to switch back and forth between both menus! Everything you need is on one screen and is there for easy viewing.

    Cons: I really expected more from the navigation. I was disappointed with the overall performance of the software and feel it does not compliment the unit over all. It is very picky about how you enter in addresses and is not always accurate. However you will get to where you need to be eventually....

    Before this I had the Kenwood Excelon DNX6980. This unit is about 5 year ahead of the Kenwood. From the sound quality, to menu latencies, ipod controls and the GPS this unit just works great. I also love the time correction. The only thing this unit should really have is a selectable crossover for the sub. It has a crossovers for the front and rear but not the sub.

    What else is there to say about this HU other than it is truly exceptional and leaves all others in the dark. Finally Alpine listened to it's customers and came out with a unit with built in 4V pre-outs. No silly imprint module needed to degrade the sound. IPod control is among the best-I use this unit with a 160G iPod classic, but works with iPhone just as well. HD radio is crystal clear, and no grainy or pixelated DVD's, this video displays images with 1.15million pixel elements. Bluetooth is also superb, very clear. Navigation is right on the money everytime. The included remote feels kind of cheap, but who cares? I plan on mating this unit with a JL Audio HD900/5 amplifier with JLA C5 series components, front and rear, and a JLA W6 12' sub to make this thing sing and hears it's true potential. Right now I'm just using the built in amp with factory speakers-but I will say it's like night and day for sound quality over the factory system. This HU is installed in a 2011 Honda Accord LX-S Coupe with steering audio controls. Check out my install pics in the Cusotmer Car Showroom. You will not be dissapointed with this unit!

    Alpine truly the summit of Videoradios

    Written By Martin B. in San Diego, San Diego, Ca on Saturday, September 10, 2011

    I was astonished at the size of the screen and the online respect that other posted so I gave it a try. Wow, I believe the reviews understated the capabilities of this unit. it performs fast, it excells in all areas. Most other units excell in one area or the other. For me the areas that are important are performance, bluetooth, ipod access, navigation, satelite, HD radio, backup camera, dvd, mp3, SD card. it excelled in all these areas, but I am yet to explore the SD card. The MP3 saved me from needing an expensive cd changer unit. I have had this for about a month and I have not been unhappy with this unit yet. Most of the time i experience envy when I consider what I could have gotten. But not this time. oh and the pandora options makes this the true leader in video units. I will never go back to kenwood, jvc, or pioneer. alpine lover for ever. You had me at free traffic for life on the navigation. All the above justifies the cost of this head unit.

    Great unit!

    Written By Gooner, Albuquerque, NM on Thursday, September 01, 2011

    Nice unit which works flawlessly with the Iphone. Top of the line unit which excels in all areas! Excellent sound and ergonomics. Good unit but the excellent tech support that is offered by Crutchfield is the real shining star. Who else can you call on a Sunday? They also are based in the United States which is great so I feel that purchasing a unit from them is also helping the economy. I have been purchasing audio equipment from them since the mid eighties and they ALWAYS come thru. Thanks for not changing and remaining the same company you have always been. Customer for life!

    Much, Much Better

    Written By Mr. L, Northeast on Monday, August 22, 2011

    Two years ago, I owned the INA-W900BT. That unit was so bad due to slow operation, freezing up, and poor sound quality that I sold it after a couple of months at a loss. For a receiver at this price, I expected a lot more. Since Eclipse and Panasonic went under, I had few options when it came to high-quality units with the features I wanted; such as built-in Bluetooth, 4V+ pre-outs, navigation, and excellent sound. Never cared for Kenwood or Pioneer, and after the W900, I though Alpine went downhill, too.

    When this receiver was announced, I decided to give Alpine one last chance- and glad I did! This unit is much improved over the W900BT. The sound is way better and has excellent adjustment and customization capabilities you'd expect for the price. The unit is faster than the previous model and boots-up quickly. Navigation is accurate and fast. No freezing or hard resetting needed as of yet. The Bluetooth pairing is simple and sounds crystal clear for both parties. iPod/Phone controls are simple and clean-sounding. I also purchased the SiriusXM SV100XM companion- and installing that is much simpler than the previous bulky accessories that required power wires and remote mounting. SQ for SiriusXM is also excellent. HD radio is excellent and sounds clear. Pandora sounds good, although I don't often use it. Overall. excellent. 5 Stars!

    Incredible nav receiver. All of the features that I've been waiting for integrated into a superb package. Sound is amazing, iPod controls are flawless (don't know how I lived with the original VW "disaster" for so long), and everything else integrates well. But, Alpine - my God! That ridiculous procedure for unlocking basic setup control panels is absurd! Fortunately, PAC has come to the rescue with a solution (the TR7) that doesn't require you to remember a foot/hand sequence that is the equivalent of a 32-bit crypto password to access it! Thanks, PAC!! Nonetheless, the unit is amazing and very worthy of 5 stars. The video access sequence issue should not overshadow the outstanding performance and features of this unit.

    Excellent unit so far. I replaced my Kenwood DNX 7100 with unit. I was going to purchase Kenwoods flagship but I thought it was way overpriced for what you get. I decided to go with this unit because you get more for your buck. The guy that was complaining about this bypass was being too picky. Flipping the switch only takes two seconds. Overall this is probably the beat unit out so far.

    Not being able to use Pandora via bluetooth is a bit disconcerting. I believe this is due to Bluetooth being considered less than ideal technically when compared to the wired iPod\iPhone connection. Charging the iPhone\iPod via the wired connection is a nice side benefit The free sat tuner is great! All in all; a very nice unit.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I wanted this for the sound quality and performance to replace a DNX 9960. The display and controls beat the DNX hands down but the sound quality is no different. However, the biggest reason is the brake wiring/hassle to enable the setup functions. To tweak the sound (for example) you have to go through a engage/disengage the break drill just to access the menu. Alpine, if I'm going to spend a grand on a head unit, let me worry about when it's safe to adjust it. Your condescending over control issue cost you a sale. This is a nice unit and Kenwood has their issues too, but I'd go with Kenwood and avoid the hassles.

    Very good unit

    Written By SJC, San Jose on Sunday, July 10, 2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I picked this unit because of its capability integrate with real-time traffic updates, Bluetooth, Pandora, and PXA-H100 Imprint add-on.

    The traffic updating seems faster than Google maps update status on my iPhone. Alpine uses colored dots to indicated traffic flow and icons for traffic incidents. For the Bay Area, it seems traffic updating is only for the freeways. It automatically can re-route around congestion and traffic incidents. The re- route feature seems to work and actually appears to save me 10+ minutes on the commute.

    The Bluetooth works with the iPhone4.

    I installed the Boyo VTL425 Ultra slim license back-up camera with it. I think I would have rather had the Alpine camera version because it can directly connect to the head unit without splicing.

    Several settings are only accessible when the parking brake and foot brake procedure is applied. I personally find this annoying to do every time I want to change an audio setting (ie. Changing the EQ off to use the imprint processor curves).

    I am not sure if the Imprint was really worth it for my 2005 Tundra with factory JBL audio. It took out nearly all of the bass out of the music. I think it sounds better with the imprint curves off and use one of the EQ settings instead. In my Honda Civic with factory speakers, the imprint is definitely worth it and sounds better with the Imprint than the EQ settings.

    I would recommend this unit to a friend despite a few imperfections.

    Simply Perfection!!!

    This is the perfect example on why Alpine is just simply the best. This system is worth every pennie, you will not be disappointed, i repeat you will not be disappointed. Has everything that you can possibly need in an Entertainment system for your car, truck or suv, it will make driving to destinations a lot more enjoyable in every way shape and form. Has a fast boot up time of 6 seconds, crystal clear picture, easy and accesible menus, bluetooth is perfect and clear, loaded with lots and lots of maps, navagation is fast and easy to use and of course perfect clean sound that Alpine has always been known for. If your thinking of purchasing this unit then wait no more, and look no further because thers not a unit out there that can compare or even come close to this. Perfect purchase im happy with it and im sure you will too.

    Alpine INA-W910

    Written By Steven B, Roswell GA on Thursday, June 23, 2011

    I have had this unit in for a week. So far it has been everything it was promised to be. There are a couple of small quirks though. Not much room to review everything so I'll be brief.

    Pandora: If you do anything else on the phone while Pandora is on it turns off the music. I believe this is the phones fault and not Alpines but I'm not sure how this is done on other radios.

    Video in: Internet video (netflix) from the iphone had to be on AUX2 and ipod control in passenger mode. No big deal...just a small inconvenience.

    pod/iphone cable: It is a USB cable AND a video cable. An adapter is provided to plug these into to and then plug into the iphone. This is bulky and leaves two cables floating around my console. I prefer a simple single cable to plug into the phone. My only real gripe.

    Nav: Works good enough for me. Gets me where I need to be.

    Bluetooth: No complaints from me or callers.

    Installation: As a former installer, I like how the rca plugs are removable. This may not affect 99% of the people reading this but it makes your installers life easier if he needs to remove or service the radio. Also less wires to cram back there if you arent installing amplifiers.

    XMSirius: Old XMDirect2 unit would not work. Had to buy the newer model.

    Overall...a great purchase:)

It's equipped with all of the latest and greatest features like, Bluetooth, iPod controls, satellite radio, navigation, back up camera, and pandora control. The ability to pause and record satellite radio ( like A DVR ) is really nice.

    2-DIN Chassis: The Alpine INA-W910 has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as Double DIN), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve.

    Note: As always, please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Motorized 7.0" Wide Touchscreen Display: The INA-W910 has a motorized 7-inch WVGA (1.15 million-pixel) touchscreen LCD monitor (with 16:9 aspect ratio) that serves as a video monitor, information display, and system controller. The INA-W910 features Visual Enhancement, a new technology that provides a more balanced picture, not over-emphasizing dark or light areas, so movies are seen with greater clarity. All of the graphics are crisp and clean for your viewing pleasure. For better visibility you can adjust the monitor's angle; choose flat or one of five settings angled upward.

    Note: You can turn off the LCD monitor to reduce power consumption and enhance sound quality.

    Front Panel Controls: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the bottom-edge of the screen. You can adjust the brightness of the button lighting at night from -2 to +2.

    Video Lock-out Feature: For safety and legal reasons, the INA-W910 features a video lock-out feature to prevent the driver from viewing a video source while the vehicle is in motion. To watch a video source, the vehicle must be parked with the ignition in the ACC or ON position. The vehicle's parking brake must be engaged, disengaged, and engaged again while the foot brake is held in. This also pertains to the receiver's System & Navigation Setup Menus.

    6-Second Boot-Up Time: The INA-W910 is operational in 6 seconds so you can access the unit's menu system almost immediately. That means you can listen to music right away and navigation loads up quickly so you don't have to spend time waiting before entering your destination. More importantly, if you have a rear camera installed, you can back up safely almost immediately.

    TV Screen Mode: This feature allows you to select the aspect ratio of any back seat monitor(s); choose from 4:3 Letter Box, 4:3 Pan and Scan, 16:9 Widescreen.

    Display Modes: You can select one of the following display modes:

    • Mode 1 (Wide): Evenly stretches a 4:3 picture horizontally to fit the widescreen monitor.
    • Mode 2 (Cinema): Displays a 4:3 picture by stretching out the picture horizontally and vertically; good for displaying a cinema-type picture with a 16:9 ratio.
    • Mode 3 (Normal): Displays a 4:3 picture at the center of the screen with a vertical black band at each side.

    Visual EQ Mode: You can select one of the following preset modes suitable for the subject image:

    • Off (Flat): Initial setting.
    • Night Mode: Suitable for movies in which dark scenes frequently appear.
    • Soft: Suitable for animated films.
    • Sharp: Suitable for old movies where images are not clearly shown.
    • Contrast: Suitable for recent movies.
    • User Memory (P-1, P-2): Change and save Brightness, Color, Tint, Contrast, and Sharpness settings in the two user memories.

    Illumination Control: You can select one of the following settings for the LCD's fluorescent backlight:

    • Auto: Adjusts the brightness of the background illumination based on the ambient light in your vehicle.
    • On: Keeps the background illumination of the monitor dark (always dimmed, the degree to which the backlight is dimmed is adjustable).
    • Off: Keeps the background illumination of the monitor bright (no dimming).

    Background Screen: You can choose from four different background colors for the display; Blue, Red, Green, or Amber.

    Numeric Keypad Input Screen: The Numeric Keypad Input Screen is displayed when the DVD mod is selected for searching a title or chapter.

    GPS Antenna: The INA-W910 comes supplied with a GPS antenna that features a magnetic base and an attached 16.5' cable terminated by a proprietary plug which connects to GPS-ANT input on the back of the headunit. The unit also comes supplied with a self-adhesive magnetic base if you are having trouble finding a flat metal surface to mount the antenna.

    Map Orientation: The INA-W910 provides three Map Orientations, choose from North Up, Heading Up, or 3D View:

    • North Up: North is always at the top of the display; this makes it easy to determine your current heading with respect to the map.
    • Heading Up: The current direction is always pointing to the top of the display; this makes it easy to see the direction of the next turn on the map.
    • 3D View: Offers you a more realistic perspective by tilting the map and displaying it with a horizon line; streets are displayed as you approach them instead of from a birds-eye view.

    Map Color: The INA-W910 offers 12 daytime/nighttime color settings for the map screen.

    GuideView Window: Exclusive to the INA-W910, Alpine's new GuideView Window gives you a convenient picture-in-picture navigation window while the unit is in audio display/mode. If you input a destination, the GuideView Window will display the next maneuver as you head towards your destination. Even when you are not routing towards a specific destination, the GuideView Window will display a digital compass, current street or freeway you are traveling on, and city/state you are currently driving in so you always know where you are headed. You can even touch the GuideView Window to show the posted speed limit of the road you are driving on. This versatile functionality allows you to efficiently view and control your music playback and still view your next turn, without having to exit out of your audio screen.

    Voice Guidance/Text to Speech: In addition to graphical on-screen directions and maps, the INA-W910 provides voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions, capable of text-to-speech (TTS), announcing the street names along with the turn directions. With turn-by-turn instructions delivered by Text-to-Speech (TTS) technology, street names, freeway numbers and freeway exit names are announced clearly through your vehicle's audio system. Directions are available in English, Spanish, or French.

    Smart Key Filtering: Alpine's Smart Key Filtering program highlights only the possible next letters as you spell street names, city names, or POI names.

    OnPoint Positioning Technology: The INA-W910 uses Alpine's OnPoint Advanced GPS Positioning, ensuring your vehicle stays accurately positioned on the map even in areas where it's difficult to receive GPS reception, such as in a tunnel or around tall buildings. OnPoint simultaneously uses three technologies - satellite-linked positioning data, gyro sensor technology (to determine the vehicle's direction) and accelerometer technology (to gauge the vehicle's speed) - resulting in continuous coverage of the location of your vehicle.

    Setting A Destination: The Alpine INA-W910 offers several ways to select a destination:

    Destination Search Description
    Browse Map tap a point on the map as your destination
    Home save your home address so you can quickly navigate to your house from anywhere
    Address enter a specific street address as your destination
    Places (POI) select from approximately 6 million Point-of-Interest (POI) locations stored on the flash drive; destinations are sorted by POI Name or by POI Category and are listed in order of distance from your current location; search near your current location, near your destination, along your current route, or near a specific city
    History from recent destinations
    Address Book save frequented locations in the unit's address book to quickly add as a destination
    Intersection enter a street name (you can first enter a city) and choose from the intersecting streets
    Coordinates enter Latitude and Longitude coordinates as your destination

    Route Preferences: Route Preferences allow you to have the unit calculate routes based on quickest time or shortest route. You can also avoid freeways, toll roads, and ferries; as well a use time restricted roads.

    TMC (Traffic Message Channel): The Alpine INA-W910 can provide you with even better routes if Traffic Message Channel (TMC) information is available along your route. TMC is a specific application of the FM Radio Data System (RDS) used for broadcasting real-time traffic and weather information. The receiver will automatically search the FM radio stations for TMC data, and the decoded information will immediately be used in route planning. The moment Alpine Navigation Software receives traffic information that may affect your route, the program will warn you that it is recalculating the route, and navigation will continue with a new route that is optimal considering the most up-to-date traffic conditions. You can choose between 3 options for traffic avoidance.
