Keep your factory look and controls

This Perfect Fit package lets you install Alpine's INE-Z928HD navigation receiver (not included) while keeping your factory look and controls. The package contains a dash adapter that's been specially designed to make the INE-Z928HD with its big 8" screen look right at home in your RAV4.

Alpine Perfect Fit

Plug it in and go

Alpine's made hookup easy too — the included wiring adapter plugs directly from the Alpine receiver into your vehicle's factory wiring harness — no splicing or soldering needed. The package also includes a steering wheel control interface — no programming necessary, just plug it in and go. Warranty: 1 year.

Perfect F.I.T. Installation Packages: Because of its large 8" touchscreen LCD monitor, the Alpine INE-Z928HD in-dash multimedia-navigation head unit (500INEZ928, sold separately) will not fit a standard Single-DIN or Double-DIN dash opening. To accommodate this large screen in your vehicle's dash, Alpine offers a line of Perfect Factory Integration Technology (F.I.T.) packages specifically for the INE-Z928HD. Alpine's Perfect F.I.T. installation packages allow the INE-Z928HD to fit seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. Perfect F.I.T. is designed to cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior. The Perfect F.I.T. installation package come with all necessary accessories for the installation of the INE-Z928HD, including an Alpine/vehicle-specific harness, antenna adapter (if necessary), Alpine-specific steering wheel interface, and BUS adapter (if necessary). A variety of new kits, representing popular U.S. vehicles, are available.

Vehicle Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-RV48-S Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package allows seamless integration of the Alpine INE-Z928 multimedia-navigation head unit in select 2009-up Toyota RAV4 vehicles with factory Premium/Fender amplified systems. This Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package will retain the factory Bluetooth mic (if equipped) and steering wheel controls (adapter included). As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

OEM-Like Appearance: The KTX-RV48-S Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package has been specifically fitted and engineered to fit select 2009-up Toyota RAV4 vehicles perfectly. It comes with a specially formed OEM-grade, high quality/high strength ABS plastic radio housing that is color matched to the dash. This allows the unit to precisely fit not only the vehicle, but also the Alpine INE-Z928 navigation receiver. In addition, extra care is taken to match the factory dash's shape, texture, and color ensuring a more OEM-like appearance. Unlike traditional universal dash kits, the Alpine Perfect F.I.T. packages include direct fit OEM-like brackets to ensure sturdy support and accurate positioning of the radio in your vehicle's dash.

Vehicle+Radio Harness: This Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package comes with a vehicle+radio harness for simple installation between the Alpine INE-Z928HD and your 2009-up Toyota RAV4. You get all the necessary harnesses and adapters in the box to install the Alpine INE-Z928HD navigation receiver in your 20009 Toyota RAV4. The vehicle+radio harness contains four Molex connectors which plug into your Toyota RAV4's factory radio harness. On the other end of the harness are two 16-pin connectors which plug into the included Toyota steering wheel control interface module (KCX-SWCTY) and the radio connector port on the back of the Alpine INE-Z928HD navigation receiver. There is also a stereo AUX input connector which plugs into the corresponding ports on the Alpine INE-Z928HD. In addition, you will need to make three hardwired connections between the supplied vehicle+radio harness and your vehicle's Parking brake (Yellow/blue), Foot brake (Yellow/black), and Reverse gear trigger (Orange/white). There is a remote turn-on lead (Blue/white) to connect an aftermarket amplifier.

Steering Wheel Controls: The Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package also includes a steering wheel remote interface module (KCX-SWCTY). For 2009-up Toyota RAV4s with factory steering wheel audio controls, the KTX-CMY8-S retains the capability to control the Alpine INE-Z928HD navigation receiver's volume, source, and playback controls. There is no additional programming required, simply plug & play. The 3.5mm connector of the included vehicle+radio harness plugs into the 3.5mm remote input of the Alpine INE-Z928HD.
