Perfect F.I.T. Installation Packages: The Alpine in-dash
navigation receivers with an 8" LCD touchscreen 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 these receivers. Alpine's Perfect F.I.T. installation
packages allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen 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.
