More lifelike navigation
Ever get nervous when you're trying to follow a 2D map in a strange city? You've got a turn coming up, but there's traffic all around you, you're too far away to read the sign, and it seems like everything's happening fast. What you need is a landmark, something to reassure you that you're on the right path. Alpine's INE-S920HD navigation receiver gives you just that: a realistic 3D map feature with depictions of buildings and terrain that'll give you a little peace of mind — and help you make the next turn in a crowded downtown area.
All the info you need on the road
Alpine gives you some other great navigation features, too. On the highway, the INE-S920HD lets you know what lane you should be in for the upcoming exit ramp or highway split. And you know those little signs that tell you if there are gas stations or restaurants at the next exit? You can have this Alpine flash those for you on a split-screen display — and you can bet their info is more up-to-date. Another cool split-screen feature lets you keep your navigation running on one side, while album art and song info from a music source show on another.
Bluetooth® that remembers what you like
Alpine puts a clever "Favorites" button right on the face — just tap the "star" button to bring it up. It's your place to stash the features you like to access on a regular basis. For example, you could put in your two favorite radio stations, a search for the closest gas station, your subwoofer controls...anything you want instant access to. And here's the best thing: your particular favorites are tied to your Blutooth profile so, if your phone's with you, the INE-S920HD "remembers" them each time you start your car. And if your significant other borrows the car, it'll remember his or her favorites, too.
HD Radio™, Pandora® Internet radio and more
You'll get a full suite of entertainment options. A built-in HD Radio tuner gives you crystal-clear digital AM/FM radio sound quality, plus shows you station and song info from participating stations. Pandora lovers get touchscreen control, including thumbs up and down, skipping songs, and changing stations. iPhone® users get control using the USB connection, while Android™ and BlackBerry users get Pandora control over the Bluetooth connection. You can also stream music from your phone or another device over Bluetooth.
Siri® Eyes Free for non-distracting operation
Got an iPhone with Siri? This receiver supports Siri Eyes Free, which means you can ask Siri to make calls, select and play music, compose and hear text messages, read notifications, even use maps and get directions — all commanded by your voice through your Alpine receiver, without any visual distractions from your Apple® device. You may need to download a firmware update from Alpine's website to enable Siri Eyes Free through your receiver.
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 INE-S920HD, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
