A big screen for your dash

Alpine designed their IVE-W530 DVD receiver for anyone who doesn't need in-dash navigation but wants a nice audio/video setup in the car. It's got everything you want in a system controller, including a sharp, clear 6.1" VGA touchscreen, powerful audio performance, and plenty of great A/V options.

Alpine IVE-W530

The Bluetooth advantage

Your phone will pair up with this Alpine in seconds, and from then on it's no problem keeping your hands on the wheel you get a call. The receiver automatically transfers your phonebook, so it's easy to make outgoing calls, too. Plus, you can stream the music stored on your phone to this receiver wirelessly, and enjoy control through the touchscreen over play, pause, and other basic functions.

Enjoy App Mode, plus other music and video

Plug in your iPhone® and you can tap into many popular audio and video apps. You can enjoy a variety of streaming media, like Netflix, YouTube, and Gawker, when you're parked and your phone is connected to the network. You'll also have control over the music and video content on your iPod® or iPhone when you plug into the USB connection. You can enjoy other A/V sources by using the front A/V input or the rear USB port. When you're on the road, you can connect a video monitor to entertain the passengers in the back with a DVD or video.

Audio controls and system expansion

The IVE-W530 comes equipped with bass and treble tone controls you can access right from the touchscreen. This Alpine delivers some impressive power with its internal amp, and you'll also find a full complement of preamp outputs if you're installing outboard amps in your vehicle.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio 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.

    DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

    DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

    Touchscreen Display

    6.1" Touchscreen Display: The Alpine IVE-W530 has a 6.1" VGA (1.15 million-pixel) touchscreen LCD monitor (with 16:9 aspect ratio) that serves as a video monitor, information display, and system controller.

    Display Settings: The Alpine IVE-W530 offers the following settings to customize the head unit's LCD touchscreen monitor.

    • Display Modes: You can select one of the following display modes:
      • Wide: Evenly stretches a 4:3 picture horizontally to fit the widescreen monitor.
      • 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.
      • 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.
    • Display Colors: You can choose from four different background colors for the display; Blue, Red, Green, or Amber.
    • Backlight/Illumination Control: You adjust the brightness of the LCD backlight from -15 to +15. You can then select one of the following modes 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).

    Simultaneous Mode: You can watch the video portion of another source on the unit's touchscreen monitor, while listening to the audio over your car speakers from the current source.

    Black Out Mode: You can turn the touchscreen monitor off, to simply listen to your music. This will reduce power consumption and enhance sound quality.

    Video Lock-out Feature: For safety and legal reasons, the IVE-W530 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 & Audio Setup Menus.

    Hard-key Buttons: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons and a rotary dial along the left-edge of the screen. You can adjust the brightness of the button lighting at night from -2 to +2.

    2-DIN Chassis: The Alpine IVE-W530 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. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology (powered by Parrot): The Alpine IVE-W530 features built-in Bluetooth technology (v3.0), powered by Parrot. Parrot is the global leader in wireless devices for mobile phones, for expanded compatibility for many Bluetooth wireless technology enabled cell phones. The head unit's built-in Bluetooth allows you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit.

    Bluetooth Profiles: In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP (Hands Free Profile), HSP (Head Set Profile), OPP (Object Push Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).

    Pairing: The Alpine IVE-W530 can be paired to up to three Bluetooth enabled mobile devices (only one device can be used at a time). Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Alpine IVE-W530. Parrot software updates provide support for future phones.

    External Microphone with Noise Cancellation: The included external microphone (with visor-clip) allows you to speak to the other party on the telephone call hands-free, while the other party's voice is played through your car stereo speakers. The external microphone is tuned and engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. This allows optimal placement in your car, for the best possible sound quality. You can adjust the microphone's volume level; and even mute the microphone, so your voice will not be heard by the caller. The external microphone measures 0.75" (diameter) x 1.3125" (deep); and features an attached 13' cable terminated by a male 3.5mm connector.

    Receiving Calls: The Alpine IVE-W530 provides a couple ways to answer your phone calls without picking up your mobile phone. Incoming calls are announced by a caller ring tone through your vehicle's speakers (music will be muted) & a Caller ID message across your Alpine head unit's touchscreen display.

    • Manual Answer: Manually answer an incoming call by pressing the "Phone" button on your Alpine head unit.
    • Automatic Answer: Set the Alpine head unit to answer the incoming call automatically; when a call is received, it is answered automatically after approximately 5 seconds.
    • Call Waiting: If a second call is received during a current call, you can have the first caller wait momentarily while you take the second call. When you are finished with one call, you can switch to the other.

    Placing Calls: The Alpine IVE-W530 provides a variety of functions for placing a phone call without using your mobile phone. The Alpine IVE-W530 features full phone book access, call history, voice tag dialing, and redial with compatible phones.

    • Voice Dialing: If you have a voice-dial capable phone, you can dial a phone contact by simply speaking the name of your contact.

    • Phonebook (with ABC search): Up to 1,000 entries (5 telephone numbers for each name) can be downloaded from your compatible mobile phone. You can select the first 3 call letters (ABC) to search for a desired name in your phonebook.
    • Shortcut Dialing: You can assign up to 4 phone numbers for one-touch dialing to make a call easily.
    • Call History: The 60 previously dialed, received, or missed numbers can be retrieved and dialed from memory.
    • Redial: You can redial a previous call by pressing the "Phone" button on front of the head unit within 5 seconds of ending the call.

    Call Switch: This function allows you to initiate the transfer of audio between your mobile phone and your car's speakers.

    Audio Streaming: The Alpine IVE-W530 can stream music from you Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP mobile device. Not only can it control & stream your music through Bluetooth, it can process your music using its built-in DSP Sound Expansion to ensure you get the best sound. Basic playback functions include; Play, Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next, & Random/Repeat. The head unit will also display your stored music's song information; such as Artist name & Song/Album title. The IVE-W530 also supports audio streaming of music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, but without control or metadata. You will continue to use your Bluetooth enabled smartphone to view and control streaming music apps. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Volume Adjustments: You can emphasize or weaken the volume level of the phone caller, the ring tone, and the microphone input to fit your own preference.

    Speaker Output: You can select which car speaker outputs the audio from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone/device.

      • Width Q: Wide 1.0, Medium 1.25, Medium 1.5, or Narrow. 2.0
      • Level: -7 to +7 (+/-14dB in 2dB steps)

    Beep Guide: This function will give audible feedback with varying tones depending upon the button pressed. The volume of this feature can be set from 0-15.

    AV Connection

    Triple A/V Inputs: The Alpine IVE-W530 DVD receiver is fitted with three audio/video inputs.

    • Two Minijack (3.5mm) A/V Inputs: The unit features a front-panel & rear-panel 3.5mm audio/video input on for connecting a temporary external A/V source, such as your portable MP3 player. The rear-panel 3.5mm input is also used in conjunction with Alpine's proprietary iPod cable (500KCU461V, sold separately) to connect your iPod/iPhone for audio/video playback.
    • Rear-Panel A/V (Composite) Input: The head unit also features a composite video/stereo audio RCA input on the rear panel for connecting a permanent external A/V source, such as a Blu-ray player or mobile ATSC tuner.

    Note: You can adjust the audio input level for each of the head unit's external A/V inputs.

    Audio/Video Output (with Dual Zone): Rear-panel stereo RCA jacks and a composite video jack are provided for feeding A/V signals to an optional video monitor for rear seat entertainment. The rear entertainment function independently routes different sources to the front and rear of the vehicle. For example, while listening to the radio or other audio source in the front, a DVD can be enjoyed in the rear with an optional rear monitor and headphones; the rear zone signals are passed by RCA composite video and stereo RCA preamp audio connections. You can select the aspect ratio of any back seat monitor(s); choose from 4:3 Letter Box, 4:3 Pan and Scan, 16:9 Widescreen.

    Rear Camera Input: The unit features a composite video input for connecting an optional rear view camera (such as the 500HCEC115, sold separately). The rear-view camera function helps you to see behind your vehicle and provides on-screen guidelines to assist you when backing up your vehicle. If a rear-view camera is connected, you should also connect the unit's reverse lead wire (Orange) to your vehicle's back-up lamp circuit. When properly connected, the image from the rear-view camera automatically appears on the monitor when the vehicle is shifted into reverse. Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.0 seconds. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    Remote Control

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    A Very Good Radio

    Written By Stephen, Byrdstown, TN on Sunday, October 05, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    • "Coolness Factor"
    • Build Quality
    • Ease of Use
    • Sound Quality
    • Value

    After about a month of using this radio with my 2008 Chevy Colorado, I can safely say it is worth every cent (yes, there are MANY with this considering the price) I spent on it. The touch screen is surprisingly responsive and doesn't give me too many issues, and it is (generally) simple to figure out. The display is surprisingly good, if a bit washed out, but still does what's needed.

    The most important thing is how well the sound quality stacks up with others. This is the first radio I've used in this price range (and the second aftermarket radio I've used), but it works as well as I expected. At the VERY high volumes, it does hiss, but that could be due to my stock speakers that are six-years-old, so I will let that slide. (Plus, I don't use that level much anyway. I only use it if I'm with friends with the windows rolled down and a good song comes on, and I only do that for a couple of seconds.) But, at the normal levels, it works INCREDIBLY well.

    Pros: The sound on this radio is VERY good for the normal and a bit into higher end. It starts hissing at the high end, but that is most likely due to my speakers still being stock. Either way... Incredible. The display is also very well lit. It isn't hard on my eyes like my previous Pioneer radio. It's also still bright enough to be easy to see no matter what. The colors are a bit washed out, however, in videos. But,,, Are you really going to watch that many videos on a radio?

    Cons: Some options (like the way to adjust time) are buried or impossible to find, even after reading the directions. It gets a bit frustrating on that end, but nothing too bad.

    Purchased this to upgrade a older alpine stereo. Works great can bluetooth audio from our phones, samsung and apple. Controls for our ipod classic have great search features. Sound quality is good standard adjustments for alpine with subwoofer control.

    Pros: Ease of use, good touch screen features.

    Cons: Having to connect wiring into parking brake and brake pedal connections factory wiring.

    System is great but is not plug and plug even with a harness. You will have to go sift though wiring and find your parking break and foot brake wiring, if you don't you will basically have a 50 dollar stereo that only plays radio and Bluetooth, settings will be disabled so you won't even be able to turn on a backup cam or get into basic settings. Do yourself a favor get the 20 dollar bypass it simplifies install a whole lot and unlocks all of the stereo features out of the box.

    Pros: fast boot up, nice feature set, good BT. DVD works great and USB reads and plays nicely

    Cons: Severly crippled by default without parking brake and foot brake wiring. Reads USB Memory a bit slow.

    This is a excellent head unit it works with the Alpine NVE m300 navigation unit the only thing I don't like is that Alpine doesn't use the loudness button any more so you have to crank the volume up to at least 20 in order to get you subs to bump really loud other than that its a excellent unit easy to use and allows you to have the gps with out buying the more expensive unit.

    Pros: easy to use work with Alpine NVE m300 navigation module

    Cons: doesn't have the loudness button

    Bought this to put an Alpine screen in the rear. Works excellent. I really like that I can shut the front screen off and just play it in back. Very nice Ipod functionality and on screen phone display. I plan on adding a Clarion rear view camera.

    Pros: Nice display. Screen blackout function. Interfaces with everything. Recognizes my phone everytime i enter. Expandability for amps in the future. Excellent picture

    Cons: Bluetooth phone quality needs improvement. I am going to try one of the new Parrot double mics. People say it sounds like its breaking up.

    I have been a fan of alpine recovers ever since I bought my first CD player back in 03 and the IVE-W530 reminded me why I have not purchased another brand since.

    Pros: Super clean loud sound, tons of expand ability options, and crystal clear screen

    I used to be an Alpine guy, until I bought this radio a few months back. I bought it for two, well, really three reasons: ALPINE name, Alpine's ipod connectivity and bluetooth. I honestly thought that since it was an Alpine unit with a Parrot bluetooth core, it would be a win win situation, I WAS WRONG!

    Pros: It looks cool, the display quality is great!

    Cons: Bluetooth quality, to be honest, it just sucks! The PANDORA interface with the ipod is poor, it won't allow you to do much with it. The search functionality while on ipod it SLOWWWWWWW. If you are looking for a good around unit, look somewhere else.

    I have been using Alpine products for over 25 years and they keep getting better. This is the second touch screen DVD units and again they keep getting better. I simply love the Bluetooth audio. As soon as it is on my Galaxy S III syncs and picks right up with my playlist.

    Pros: Bluetooth audio, sound quality.

    Cons: I hate the stupid foot brake/parking brake dance that rarely works right.

    If you have a double-din headunit space in your dashboard and don't need navigatipon, then this is the perfect receiver for you. I've always been a fan of alpine products due to their superior quality and I'm not at all disappointed with this product. There are a plethora of settings and options that allow you to tweak your music and visuals to a great degree. The most surprising feature was how well the Bluetooth synced right up with my Iphone and routes the caller through my speakers. The headunit boots very quickly, in only a few seconds, so if you add a back-up camera in the future you will not have any lag. Ipod control through the unit could be a little bit faster, but it still scrolls through playlists and albums quite fast. Overall I'm extremely pleased with this purchase and don't know how I lived without one for soo long!

    Pros: Screen quality Touch panel quality/sensitivity Bluetooth functionality Iphone/Ipod capability

    I usually always stick with alpine but after 2 months of this unit I've had it.after the firmware update it no longer auto connects to Bluetooth and alpine has no eta on an update only stating that they are working on it. Then a week ago I switched to an iphone5 and found that it wouldn't connect through the USB anymore, with that alpine told me I needed to purchase their iPod cable and a 30 pin to lightning adapter to make it work. I don't find this acceptable when it's advertised to work with an iPhone. So now I'm waiting on my pioneer head unit to come in, thanks to crutchfield for taking care of its customers....

    This was the best radio I have owned until I upgraded the firmware to 1.27. Previously I would have given it a 5 star. After the update, the radio will not auto pair when I enter the car. I have to click into the setup / source setup / paried devices / and click on my phone every time. All other functions work and I have tested with multiple phones. Beware of the firmware upgrade you can not go back. I hope Alpine will provide a fix.

    Pros: Great radio

    Love this product, but like most people that self install, I wish it gave more information for hooking up the two brake wires so DVD player will work correctly. Since I haven't hooked these up I can't use the DVD and I am missing some setup functions. With that being said, still exactly what I wanted out of a deck. The BT function lets me keep my phone in the glove compartment and I can just dial the phone through my deck just. My wife is very happy about that.

    Pros: Easy to use and has all the features capabilities that you could want.

    Cons: Haven't found one yet.

    I had this unit in my car for a few weeks and was very un-impressed by it, with the exception of the audio quality. This unit is short on features when compared to others in the same price range. No HD radio, it did not work with my 5th Gen iPod video or my 2nd Gen iPod Nano. It would not play the song I selected from a search! Browsing songs was also slow. Bluetooth hands-free was terrible. Callers could not hear much of anything. Endud up getting the Pioneer AVH-P4400BH- many more features, better sound quality, FULL iPod support for only a few bucks more.

    Pros: Decent sound, good audio quality, quick startup.

    Cons: Too expensive for the price. This should be a $300 unit. Not enough features for the money. Didn't work as advertised

    First thing crutchfields was wonderfull ,fast,professional,no problems there.The stereo has all the bells and whisles except an equalizer thats not worth paying the extra money.The rub was if you plan on installing it youself you better very very handy with tools..I installed mine in a 2002 ford f350 superduty .The wiring wasn't to bad but you have to cut and trim the dash just right for it to fit.A lot of trial and error.You have to bend the steel slider rail for the factory stereo down for it to fit.REMEMBR DON'T TRIM TO MUCH OF THE DASH OPENING TAKE YOUR TIME.As for the unit i highly recomend it.If ou are not very handy pay a professinoal o install it.

    Pros: everything you need and want

    Cons: no equalizer and pain in the neck to install in a superduty..

    Overall happy with this stereo. Great sound, lots of gadgets and plenty of options. It looks great on my 2012 Prius and goes with with the interior finish. Navigating through screens is easy. Phone/CD/USB/DVD screens are managable. After a couple day trial, I upgraded from a double-din Alpine CDE-W235BT reciever to this Alpine W530 unit. Big differance in navigating from the more analog reviever, but the sound remained the same. Glad I moved up. Recommend!

    Pros: Sound is excellent. Bass is incredible as the highs. I expected no less from an Alpine unit. My rear view mirror is vibrating on the bass......and I don't have a pre-amp attached, though I have Kenwood 5-ways on the front.

    Cons: Some of the touch screen buttons difficult to enable.

    Overall a very solid head unit, sounds really good out of the box and has tons of features. Owners manual leaves something to be desired, but its fun to play with and figure things out if you're an audio enthusiast like I am. Setting the clock requires wizardry, though, so be ready for that.

    Pros: Big improvement in sound quality over my stock head unit out of the box. It looks clean and like it is supposed to come with my car, doesn't have dolphins swimming on it like my first Alpine unit did. Plenty of features.

    Cons: The subwoofer control on the head unit was confusing and wasn't explained well in the manual. When you have the output set at 0, the default value, that seems to be the equivalent of -15. You have to crank it to the maximum level (15) to get the same effect as the stock head unit 0 setting in my car. Figured this out after getting no bass at all on the default settings and pouring over the car checking for shorts, regrounding my amp several times, checking voltages, swapping RCA's, fuses, etc.

I dont mind touch screen for all te other controlls but having an old school knob for volume adjustments is just a pleasure. I will not buy another reciever without one after having this one..

    WOW. This is the stereo I was dreaming about for a long long long time. 4 months ago I got from Crutchfield Alpine CDE-136BT and I was OK with it, but screen information was so limited, it was really bother me. I Google Alpine in Europe and I find this radio, I was praying to have this. Cructhfield made my dream come true. Guys, the sound quality of this stereo is IMPRESSIVE. I am ex professional musician and it is hard to please me with sound quality, but this radio is and of my search for car stereo. Video is perfect, sound is amazing. If you do not care about GPS, this is for you. Not cheap but not expensive for what you got. Very impressed by Alpine. I must to say about Cruchfield customer service. They are BEST SERVING PEOPLE IN USA. God bless you all.

    Cons: Not yet. :-)

    Great all-around receiver for audio enthusiasts

    Written by Dominic Devito, Staff Writer - Creative, on 4/15/2013 3:38:00 PM
    The IVE-W530 sounds fantastic, thanks to its Burr-Brown 24-bit digital-to-analog converter. I was able to hear lots of subtle details from all my audio sources, from USB to iPod to CD. Not a ton of sonic "tweaks" available, but I honestly didn't miss them. Speaking of iPod, the search function was super fast for finding songs by artist, title, album, or playlist, even on my device which is packed with songs. The screen quality is nearly top-notch, and the icons are a pretty good size for folks with thick fingers like myself, ensuring I won't pull up the wrong audio source by mistake. Phone functionality is quick and responsive, with an easy-to-follow menu for making and answering calls, as well as streaming audio. The dedicated phone button on the top left makes it easy to access at any time without going through the menus.
