Overview: The Alpine KCA-100BT Bluetooth Interface allows you to
make and receive calls on your Bluetooth-equipped cellular telephone and Apple
iPhone through a 2004-up Ai-NET equipped Alpine head unit. The interface includes a microphone and a 3-button remote to assist you in
making and answering your calls.
Bluetooth Hands-Free Telephone
Feature: With the interface, you can initiate, answer, and end a call on
your Bluetooth telephone without touching it. Once the interface is installed
and paired with your phone, you can initiate a call by pressing a button on the
remote, and dialing the number using a voice tag. Once the other party answers,
you can speak to them through the supplied microphone and listen to their voice
through your vehicle's speakers. During the call, the head unit mutes the
current source being played so you can hear the call (head unit must have
telephone mute wire).
Note: If your phone does not support voice tag
functionality, you will need to dial the number on the phone handset.
Bluetooth Streaming Audio: You
can also listen to Bluetooth streaming audio devices through the interface. Some
devices with streaming audio functionality also have command and control
protocols, allowing you to use the head unit's preset buttons for play, pause,
previous track, and next track commands.
Note: The Apple iPhone does
not support Bluetooth wireless music audio streaming.
Microphone: The supplied
microphone allows you to use voice tags for dialing, and speak to the other
party on the telephone call hands free. The microphone comes with clips and
hardware for a variety of mounting options. Dimensions: Diameter=0.538",
Length=1.31", Cable Length=9.75'.
Remote: The 3-button remote
allows you to initiate, answer, and terminate your phone calls. You can also
adjust the volume up or down with the + and - buttons. Dimensions: Width=1.302",
Height=0.524", Depth=1.894", Cable Length=9.75'
