Custom-fit audio for your Jeep

Alpine's i207-WRA digital multimedia receiver brings smartphone connectivity to your 2007-17 Jeep Wrangler. With a big 7" diagonal display, this feature-packed performer fits perfectly into your Jeep, bringing you built-in Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capability, HD Radio™, and plenty of inputs. 

Designed for your Wrangler

The included Alpine Restyle package accommodates the i207-WRA in pretty much every 2007-up Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited model. This package contains a dash kit that replaces the section of your dash and houses the receiver, along with wiring adapters that plug directly into the factory electronics and wiring. Alpine even includes an iDatalink module that allows you to keep your steering wheel audio controls and the Jeep Uconnect® features you've grown fond of. Once you've identified your vehicle, we'll tell you if this Jeep kit fits.

Factory functionality meets aftermarket style

The dash kit doesn't exactly replicate your Jeep's dash, but it does offer the same features. It comes with custom keys that match lighting, color, shape, and style of the factory keys, and it also lets you keep your climate controls. Buttons below the 7" display offer easy access to commonly used functions, and you'll even retain your Jeep's 12-volt ports.

Apple CarPlay

The i207-WRA supports CarPlay — it integrates your iPhone® into the driving experience with a seamless interface, putting iPhone content at the driver's fingertips with minimal distraction. You'll enjoy easy access to your music library, your phone, messages, navigation, and many third party streaming music apps, too. Learn more at As an added bonus, you can access Siri Eyes Free functionality with a touch of the receiver's mic button, using your voice to place calls, select music, hear notification, add reminders — even compose and listen to text messages.

Android Auto

If you're an Android fan, you'll love how Android Auto integrates the Android platform into your driving experience in a non-distracting way. You'll have voice control access to Google Maps, weather, music, your phone, text messages, plus easy access to many of your favorite apps. Get more info at

Built-in Bluetooth®

Built-in Bluetooth allows you to use the i207-WRA for hands-free calling and music streaming through your compatible phone. Big touchscreen buttons make tuning and volume adjustment a snap, and the external microphone lets you enjoy crystal-clear conversations.

Easy access to essential features

The receiver's "Favorites" button gives you quick access to frequently used features, like radio stations, phone numbers, destinations, sound settings, and anything else you'll want "right now". One touch adds your choice directly to the favorites menu.

Those favorites are tied to your phone's Bluetooth profile, so the i207-WRA brings them up automatically when you get into your Jeep. You can have two user profiles tied to the stereo, with up to 80 favorites per user spread across 10 touchscreen pages. When the stereo detects two users at the same time, it can offer split-screen access to both users' favorites.

A big, versatile display

If you're a little bit old-school, you'll really appreciate the side buttons that get you right into functions like favorites, navigation, phone access, and sound settings without going through menu screens. You can create a custom top source banner that shows the sources you use most often, so you won't have to scroll through anything to choose a source. You can also use split-screen sound tuning to adjust the sonic controls and change tracks at the same time.

Enjoy fingertip control

The 7" display features capacitive touchscreen control, similar to your smartphone or tablet. You can pinch-to-zoom your maps for a better view, or enlarge or shrink album artwork as you please with your fingers. It employs 4-way movement on the screen, so you're always one swipe away from your favorite functions. Swipe left for navigation, right for A/V commands, up for audio or rear-seat entertainment options, and down for Bluetooth and source selection.

HD Radio

HD Radio, SiriusXM, and more

The i207-WRA offers a multitude of entertainment options:

• HD Radio reception: You'll enjoy crystal-clear sound quality from participating AM and FM stations, including FM that sounds almost as good as a CD. Plus, you'll see station and song info on the screen.

• Pandora® Internet radio: Pandora fans will enjoy touchscreen control over their stations, including thumbs up and down, bookmarks, and station lists. Just plug your iPhone® into the USB port or use the Bluetooth connection with your Android™ device.

• iPhone and iPod® control: Browsing for your favorite songs is simple and concise, thanks to an intuitive touchscreen interface and the huge display. You can check out song title, artist info, and album art with a quick glance at the big screen.

• Satellite radio compatibility: You can add SiriusXM programming to the receiver with an optional tuner and your paid subscription.

HDMI input

The i207-WRA also features an MHL-compatible HDMI input, allowing you to connect most compatible Android smartphones and devices. With the correct HDMI cable connected, you'll be able to view video content from your phone or a portable Blu-ray Disc™ player on the Alpine's screen while parked.

Connect up to three cameras

You can also connect up to three cameras with the optional Multi-Camera Selector Interface so you can see more of what's around your vehicle when you're roaring through the dirt or getting in and out of tight spots.

Control your aftermarket accessories

If you've tricked out your Jeep with hard-core off-road add-ons, Alpine's got you covered. The optional Truck Accessory Controller enables simple system expansion, allowing touchscreen command of up to eight electrical devices like winches, LED lights, interior lights, suspension kits, tire inflators, and differential locks. You can customize the onscreen icons and button labels, so you'll be able to access your devices with ease.

Preset EQ settings to suit your Jeep

Alpine's audio engineers have loaded special Sound Parameters Settings into this receiver for all the vehicles covered by Restyle packages. You pick the one that matches your Jeep to get sound that's custom-EQ'd and time-corrected for your vehicle's acoustics.

Shareable sound control

With Alpine's TuneIt app, you can use your phone's touchscreen to make the changes to the 9-band parametric equalizer, crossover, and time correction. You can then share your system and settings with other TuneIt users, and see what they've done as well. You can link your TuneIt account to your Facebook account and get notifications through social media.

iDatalink Maestro included

The i207-WRA offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to an iDatalink Maestro interface. You'll keep your steering wheel audio controls, your factory amp, and safety warning chimes, if present. The iDatalink adapter also lets you tap into your Jeep's diagnostic port, so you can check out expanded functionality including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure monitor on the Alpine's screen.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Installation note: You will have to make some modifications to your vehicle to install this Alpine receiver. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see more details in the "Modified Fit" link above.

You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.

Some states and localities prohibit or restrict the use of video and information displays in vehicles – it is your responsibility to see if any restrictions or prohibitions apply in your area.

    OEM Integration

    Vehicle Compatibility: The Alpine i207-WRA in-dash digital media receiver is designed specifically to be installed in the following Jeep Wrangler vehicles (as of 9/20/2017).

    Make Model Year
    Jeep Wrangler 2007-2017
    Wrangler Unlimited 2007-2017
    Note: You will will need to unbolt the factory radio's rear-support bracket. Two side-mount brackets and a new rear-support bracket are included to install the Alpine receiver.

    iDataLink Maestro Interface: The Alpine i207-WRA in-dash digital media receiver includes the iDataLink Maestro (ALP-MRR) radio replacement interface with radio and vehicle harness. The iDataLink Maestro interface retains your Wrangler's factory premium amplifier and steering wheel controls, as well as provides on-screen vehicle information like tire pressure & battery voltage display and user customizable gauges when replacing your Jeep Wrangler's factory radio with the Alpine aftermarket in-dash receiver.

    Flashing Module via Weblink Desktop: The iDatalink Maestro RR (ALP-MRR) will need to be loaded with correct firmware before installation. The included USB cable plugs into your computer and allows you to "flash" the Maestro RR with the appropriate firmware to prepare it for installation. Simply download Weblink Desktop (for Windows and Mac) onto your computer to access the appropriate firmware. System requirements include -

    • Windows PC (10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP/2000) or Mac OS X (Mojave [10.14], HighSierra [10.13], Sierra [10.12], El-Capitan [10.11])
    • Available USB port (version 2.0 or 3.0)
    • 4GB RAM or more
    • 200MB available space on HDD
    • Internet connection

    Note: Not compatible with Chromebook and other operating systems not listed above.

    Pre-Wired Harness: The radio, vehicle, and interface harnesses comes pre-wired, so all you need to do is plug the appropriate connector in the back of the Alpine i207-WRA, iDatalink Maestro (ALP-MRR), and the vehicle's factory radio plugs. Even the Parking Brake & Reverse Gear connections are pre-wired to make installation much simpler and less time consuming.

    Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

    Apple CarPlay: Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your USB-connected iPhone 5 or newer (running latest iOS version) with Lightning-connector in the car, while you stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and integrates them into the Alpine i207-WRA. Apple CarPlay offers an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, view maps, listen to music, and access messages from your compatible iPhone through the Alpine i207-WRA in-dash receiver. With Apple CarPlay, you can control these functions from the i207-WRA receiver's 7" capacitive touchscreen or activate Siri for minimized distraction.

    • Maps: Through Apple CarPlay, the power and simplicity of Apple Maps comes to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. If you have iOS 12.0 or newer on your iPhone with the latest version of Google Maps or Waze (coming soon), you can choose to navigate via Google Maps or Waze instead of CarPlay. Google Maps and Waze do not support Siri voice control, but will have there own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver.
    • Phone: With Apple CarPlay, you can use the i207-WRA's interactive touchscreen or ask Siri to make calls, return calls, and check voicemail. To dial a phone number, simply tap the "Phone" icon and Siri will ask you who you want to call. Using the touchscreen you can manually enter a phone number from the on-screen keypad, scroll through contacts, or select from recent and miss calls. In addition, you get access to your voicemails via touchscreen and Siri. When a call comes in, simply tap the "Phone" icon to answer. You'll carry on your side of the conversation through the included external microphone, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's speakers. You can emphasize or weaken the volume level the microphone. You can also select which car speaker outputs the caller audio; you can select All, Front-Left, Front-Right, or Front-Left/Right.
    • Text Messages: Apple CarPlay also lets you enjoy a better and safer way of text messaging with friends and family when you're on the road, through the Alpine receiver and Siri. Through your voice commands, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages so that you never have to glance at your phone while behind the wheel. When a new message comes in a banner will come across the screen and Siri will read back the message for you. Text messages cannot be read or typed from the head unit's touchscreen to prevent driver distraction.
    • Music Library: CarPlay lets you access your music in your iPhone's music library, plus iTunes radio from the Alpine i207-WRA. You can browse your music by Playlist, Artist, Song, etc.. just like you would on your iPhone from the i207-WRA's touchscreen. You can also use Siri to find and play back your music. The i207-WRA's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background. Tap the Now Playing icon on the Alpine receiver's capacitive touchscreen and see song, artist, album information with Album Art displaying in the background. From the Now Playing screen you also get basic playback function, like Play/Pause, Previous Next/Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Repeat/Shuffle.
    • Audio Apps & Podcasts: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying podcasts, music, and radio - including Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, TuneIn Radio, Slacker Radio, Vox, Stitcher, At Bat, CBS Radio News, NPR One, OverCast, & Audible. Control them from the head unit's touchscreen or Siri just like you would from your iPhone. Your iPhone's touchscreen remains unlocked during CarPlay connection, so you are able to access additional music apps and listen to them through the Alpine receiver; however these apps offer no control or display information from the head unit's touchscreen.
    • Other Functions: Within the CarPlay's touchscreen menu is a circular icon which acts like the back button on your iPhone. In addition there is an "Main Menu" icon which exists CarPlay and takes you back to the Alpine receiver's Home Menu.
    • Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or newer running the latest iOS version.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.

    Android Auto: The Alpine i207-WRA also supports the Android Auto app for Android smartphones running OS Lollipop (5.0 or newer). Your compatible Android smartphone must be connected to the Alpine receiver's rear-panel USB port via the included USB extension cable and your phone's USB cable, plus be paired via Bluetooth (your vehicle's parking brake needs to be engaged to initially setup Android Auto). Android Auto extends the Android platform into your car in a way that's purpose-built for driving and automatically brings you useful information and organizes it into simple on-screen "card-style" pop-ups that appear just when they're needed. It's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead. Features of Android Auto include:

    • Google Assistant: The Alpine receiver enhances your Android Auto experience even more by incorporating Google Assistant using the head unit's external microphone and your car speakers for voice command and text-to-speech, which makes using Android Auto and all of its integrated applications fast, easy, and safe. You will need to press the "mic" button or say "OK Google" to activate the Google Assistant. Use the Google Assistant to make call, send a message, reply to a message, get driving directions, or listen to music.
    • Google & Waze Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and the Google Assistant. If you prefer, you can switch over to a simpler version of the community-based Waze navigation app (version 4.27 or higher).
    • Phone & SMS: With Android Auto you get access to your contacts and messages through the Alpine receiver while keeping your eyes on the road. Use the unit's external mic and the Google Assistant to make a phone call, or have your text-messages read aloud to you while you concentrate on the road ahead; you can even reply to texts via voice command.
    • Music: Access your Android smartphone's music library through the Alpine receiver via Google Play Music. You'll be able to browse music like you do on your smartphone with song/artist information display and album art. Use the receiver's touchscreen to select songs or just say what song you want to listen to through the head unit's external mic and the Google Assistant. You also get access to online music and radio stations from Amazon MusicPandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Slacker Radio, & Tune-In. Music apps include song and station browsing, plus song/artist information and album art or station logo. 
    • Android smartphones with a USB Type-C connector (including the Pixel) may not function without appropriate USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Android Auto is being used with a connected Android smartphone.
    • Use a USB cable that is under 6' long and avoid using any extension cable other than the one supplied.

    GPS Receiver & Antenna: The i207-WRA features a built-in GPS receiver, comes with an external GPS antenna, and is outfitted with a vehicle speed sensor (VSS) wire to optimize CarPlay's Apple Maps and Android Auto's Google Maps. The GPS antenna should be mounted on top of the dashboard near the front windshield.

    HDMI & USB Integration

    HDMI Input & Output: The Alpine i207-WRA is outfitted with an HDMI input and output. The HDMI input provides connection for iPhone, Android, and other HDMI enabled equipment. The HDMI output can be used for RSE (rear seat entertainment).

    • HDMI Input: In addition iPhone and Android connectivity, the head unit's HDMI input can be used to connect almost any external mobile AV source with an HDMI output, such as Alpine's DVE-5300 DVD player(500DVE5300; sold separately). The HDMI input will provide video and audio playback. Your vehicle's parking brake will need to be engaged to view video on the receiver's screen. Playback functions will need to be controlled from your HDMI-connected device, unless you are connecting the DVE-5300 DVD player which does allow control from the i207-WRA's touchscreen. The HDMI input supports video resolutions up to 720p. If you need more than one HDMI input, you can purchase Alpine's HDMI switcher (500KCX630H, sold separately), which provides a total of two HDMI inputs and one HDMI output.
    • HDMI Output (w/ Dual Zone): The i207-WRA is equipped with an HDMI monitor output for rear seat entertainment (RSE). The rear seat entertainment function independently routes a different source to the front and rear of the vehicle. For example, while listening to the head unit's built-in HD radio or other audio source in the front, HDMI can be enjoyed in the rear with optional rear monitors (featuring an HDMI input) and headphones. The unit's HDMI input is the only source that can be displayed in in the rear through the head unit's HDMI output. The HDMI output supports video resolution up to 480p. The parking brake does not need to be engaged to enjoy HDMI playback in the rear of the vehicle.

    Smartphone Mirroring via HDMI: The Alpine's i207-WRA's rear-panel HDMI input can be used to connect select Android or Apple iOS devices with video output to the digital media receiver. With the vehicle's parking brake engaged you can mirror the smartphone device's image and watch stored video and video apps (like Netflix) on the digital media receiver's touchscreen monitor. Stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your iPod/iPhone device can be heard through your speaker system without the parking brake engaged; however, there is no song/artist information display unless the parking brake is engaged. There is no touchscreen control from the Alpine head unit; you will still continue to use your Apple iOS or Android device to select content, apps, and control playback.

    • iPhone Connectivity: If you have an iPhone 5 or newer with the Lightning connector, you will need Apple's Lightning Digital AV adapter, a Lightning-to-USB cable (like Alpine's KCU-471i cable), and a HDMI cable (like Alpine's KCU-610HD HDMI cable kit) -all sold separately. The HDMI connector provides the audio/video playback, while the USB connection charges your iPhone device. Not compatible with 30-pin Apple devices.
    • Android Connectivity: Use Alpine's KCU-610MH HDMI cable kit (sold separately) to connect your MHL-compatible Android smartphone. Check here for a list of compatible MHL-enabled Android phones. The Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S5 and Note II/III/IV requires an additional 3rd party MHL microUSB 5-pin to 11-pin adapter (sold separately). The HDMI connector provides audio/video playback, while the USB connection charges the battery of your Android smartphone

    iPhone Lightning-to-USB Direct Connect: The Alpine receiver supports direct connection of your Apple iPod/iPhone with Lightning connector or iPhone 4S with 30-pin connector through its rear-panel USB port and the included USB extension cable (use Alpine's KCU-471i/KCU-445i cable or the cable that came with your Apple device). The i207-WRA supports audio playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of your USB-connected Apple device with Lightning connector.

    • Head Unit Control: The Alpine i207-WRA lets you navigate your iPod/iPhone's music library by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, Composer, Podcast, or Audiobook. You can then search each category alphabetically. The head unit also offers playback functions such a Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, & Random/Repeat for stored music files. Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track are supported by many music apps too; not all apps will be compatible. Your USB-connected iPhone will remain unlocked, so you can use its touchscreen to access music apps.
    • Song/Artist Information: The Alpine in-dash digital media receiver will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music file information; such as Track number, Elapsed playing time, Artist name, Song/Album title, as well as Album Art. The unit will also display song/artist information and station identification from select music apps.
    • 1.5A Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position (if your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it).

    Apple Device Compatibility Chart: The Alpine i207-WRA is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features (as of 2/13/2018):

    USB Mass Class Storage Devices: In addition to iPhone & Android connectivity, the head unit's rear-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to connect a USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) device; such as a USB thumbdrive or portable digital audio player. A 5' USB extension cable is included. The unit supports playback of a variety of audio and video files stored on a compatible USB MSC device. USB portable devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the digital media receiver's USB port (max. 1.5A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    6ch/4V Preouts + Sub Control: The i207-WRA has three sets of 4-Volt RCA pre-outs (Front/Rear/Sub) for connection of external amplifiers. The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The subwoofer output level can be adjusted independently from the main volume setting (0-15); so even at low volume settings the subwoofer is still audible. The subwoofer output phase can be set to Normal (0°) or Reverse (180°).

    High-Pass & Low-Pass Crossovers: This unit is equipped with active high-pass and low-pass crossovers which limit the frequencies delivered to the speaker and line-level outputs. Each speaker channel is controlled independently, so each speaker pair can be driven by the frequencies for which have they been optimally designed. The crossover adjusts the HFP (high pass filter) or LPF (low pass filter) frequency point of each speaker pair, and also the slope (how fast the filter rolls off the highs or lows).

    • High Pass Filter: The Alpine head unit is equipped with a high-pass filter for its speaker-level output and front/rear-channel preamp outputs. You can set the unit's high-pass filter center frequency point to 20Hz, 25Hz, 31.5Hz, 40Hz, 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 160Hz, 200Hz, or Off (through).

This effectively creates a perception of increased distance for those speakers. Time Correction allows the listener to be placed at an equal distance between the left and right speakers for optimum staging. You can adjust the distance (0-336.6cm) or time delay (0.0-9.9msec) of each speaker and subwoofer to the listener. You are able to save three time correction presets.
    • Media Xpander HD: Alpine's exclusive Media Xpander HD is engineered to bring out the musical details lost in compressed media, and it is adjustable per source to get the most out of your digital audio media. The Media Expander HD makes vocals or instruments sound distinct regardless of the music source. The FM radio, USB memory, HDMI, iPhone/iPod, Pandora, and Bluetooth Audio will be able to reproduce the music more clearly even in vehicles with a lot of road noise.
    • Source Volume Level: The output level (+/-14dB) of each source can be individually adjusted. For example, if the Tuner level sounds lower than Bluetooth, its output can be adjusted without affecting the other sources.

Settings that can be adjusted include Parametric EQ, Bass Engine SQ, Crossover, and Media Xpander. As you change settings on your smartphone, you will hear the results, so you can customize the sound to exactly how you want it. You can make and save up to 100 different sound settings in your account, which is helpful if you want various settings to use for specific types of music. After tuning your system, upload your settings to the Alpine Cloud Server to share them with other Alpine fans. You can also check out other user's settings and rate them. The more active you are, the higher your profile status progresses within the app.
    • Facebook Notifications: The Alpine TuneIt app also keeps you in touch with your Facebook friends.

    We have not been able to research this as our units are made for the U.S. and do not come with a european or DAB tuner. I recommend contacting Alpine by calling 800-421-2284 to check if the european version works the same as the US version

    It does not have that sensor but any skilled auto tech can install one with or without a camera. The radio itself is one of the best mods we added if that helps.

    I have the premium alpine speaker system in my wrangler. Is this head unit sound quality better or around the same as the stock head unit?
    [ Chris  Jun 30, 2020 ]

    The I207-WRA has more amps than the stock Mopar 5064920AE so you will definitely notice a difference. The Alpine system was one of the best upgrades we did to our Jeep. Touch Screen App commands was worth it alone but yes the sound quality will be elevated with the Alpine system.
    [ RODNEY J  Jul 05, 2020 ]
    It absolutely sounds better than the standard jeep headunit. Its like night and day better.
    [ Marcus  Jul 03, 2020 ]
    The question you have to answer for yourself is, Will this head unit work with the premium speaker system. If it does then I say buy it. I've never been one to keep stock stereo systems in my vehicles and I've never bought a vehicle with an premium sound system either. Alpine has always been the brain of my systems. This head unit is great and integrates well with the stock components. I would recommend purchasing the KCU-315UH, which is an extension for USB and HDMI. I installed mine in the center console where the AC plug would go. I also had the HCE-TCAM1-WRA installed as well.

    If you purchased the product from Crutchfield, feel free to contact our Tech Support team. Our toll-free Tech Support number is printed on your invoice, and is also available under the "My Orders" tab in the "My Account" section of our website. If you did not purchase the unit from Crutchfield, then you may want to contact the manufacturer.

    If I install this unit in my 2016 JK, do I disconnect and discard the factory uconnect module? I think I have a parasitic current draw in that uconnect module so I want it gone, but I want to retain Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel controls.

    If I currently have Sirius XM on my radio radio and am replacing that radio, I should be able to retain Sirius XM with this new device, correct?
    [ The Mut  Feb 29, 2020 ]
    4 answers
    Yes. That is correct. You will need to contact Sirius XM customer service to replace your factory serial number with the serial number from your new tuner. By the way, the new Sirius XM tuner gets several more channels than the factory unit. Please note you have to get the Sirius XM tuner add-on (SXV300V1). It is free with a mail-in rebate. The Alpine unit does not have Sirius XM on it.
    [ Scott  Mar 02, 2020 ]
    Yes. You have to order the separate XM/Sirius receiver which plugs into the back of the i207-WRA. There is usually an instant rebate on that unit so it is basically free. You have to call XM/Sirius to substitute your new receiver for the old unit. Easily done.
    [ Jon  Mar 01, 2020 ]
    You will, but you'll need to get the Alpine adapter that allows/integrates connection to the factory SAT antenna. Then on Sirius, I believe you need to transfer your subscription from the old radio to this one.
    [ Jeremy  Mar 01, 2020 ]
    You will need to get online or call Sirius and have the receiver ID switched with the new unit to retain your current service.

    hi, do i need to cut anything on my dash to install the i207-wra on my wrangler? i see for the ilx-207 i need to cut a small piece, are they not technically the same unit?

    The i207-WRA comes with special adapters and brackets designed for the Wrangler. No cutting is necessary.

    i207-wra is does not require cutting to install. It was a fun weekend project getting to know my Jeep better. At the same time I installed the Alpine backup camera that mounts in the spare tire. No big deal just take your time.
    [ David  Jan 07, 2020 ]
    I installed the i207 wra in my 2017 Wrangler Sport about 2 years ago. I did NOT have to cut anything on the Jeep to fit the unit. The biggest problem I ran into (and it wasn't very big) was stuffing all the wiring in behind the head unit. You have to be careful that you don't pull any of the connectors loose from the IDatalink module. I have had excellent luck with this unit and highly recommend it.

    Is there a work around for flashing the maestro with a Mac as opposed to needing Windows?
    [ Bryan  Oct 04, 2019 ]
    3 answers
    Instead of a web based app that was originally used and only worked with Internet Explorer, there is a stand alone app that you download to your computer (Windows or Mac), and flashing the Maestro module is handled through that now. I recently made a change to the mapping of a few of the steering wheel buttons and discovered this info.
    [ Jeremy  Jun 26, 2020 ]
    Probably not, it's a pain ... but you only have to do it once.
    [ Paul  Oct 10, 2019 ]
    I'm uncertain on that, as I use a Windows PC, however I do know they went to a different app that may not be dependent on using the Internet Explorer browser specifically because I changed my steering wheel button layout a little recently and an "upgraded" app needed to be installed instead of the Internet Explorer specific web link, so the app very well may have a version for Mac / Apple now.

    I doubt it because the WRA is for Jeep Wranglers. The i207-WRA is an Alpine ilx-207 with special trim work for Wrangler. You may want to contact someone at Crutchfield to see if there is special trim work for your HHR. I hope this helps.

    Apple controls what apps it allows into its CarPlay sandbox, then the app developer has to make the app CarPlay compatible. If the app developer says that their app is CarPlay compatible, then it will work. There may be some idiosyncrasies though. I know google maps works in CarPlay on this head unit, but Siri voice control is not supported.

You will not regret it. You will love it! PS Just make sure you have Sirius radio installed, if you want that or you will lose it when you install the new system.

    The GPS antenna is an antenna only. It provides the location reference point. You use your smart phone for the map overlay. You can download Google map on your smartphone and use it with the Alpine i207 in Airplane mode if concerned about use of your cell data plan.
    [ David  Jan 07, 2020 ]
    The GPS function on the receiver uses your phone as the GPS "brains", so to speak, and transmits the info back to the receiver for display. I believe the reason for the separate GPS antenna is mainly to provide better GPS signal reception and tracking ability.
    [ Jeremy  May 29, 2019 ]

    Factory XM is contained in the factory head unit (you'll have to buy the stand alone XM that Alpine recommends) or just stream it through your phone. Steering wheel controls hooked up seamlessly! Uconnect yes and no ... you're actually replacing Uconnect with iDataLink (they are each, the box that connects the vehicle to the respective head unit) you won't be able to tell any difference.

    I had previously installed the Alpine PWE-S8-WRA subwoofer. I am planning on upgrading the factory head unit to this one, what will I have to do to connect the plug-play Alpine subwoofer with this new head unit?
    [ Gonzalo  Dec 02, 2017 ]
    3 answers
    If you already have the PWE-S8-WRA installed in the current factory system, to my knowledge, all you will have to do is install your new head unit which will connect to the Wrangler's factory radio connections via the adapters Crutchfield supplies to integrate aftermarket head units into factory connections. I don't have the particular head unit you're planning to go with but do have a different Alpine head unit that I'm using and I ran RCA level signal cables between the head unit and sub instead or utilizing the speaker level connections, You still use the harness that you have already installed for the sub for the connections but if I recall in the harness for the sub, there is a separate Molex plug so that you can easily disconnect the speaker level connections if you elect to run RCA's back to the sub for the audio signal instead. But that choice is up to you. RCA (low level connections) tend to have better noise rejection in the automotive environment than speaker (high level connections) level, but that choice is up to you. If that's not a huge concern, yes you should certainly just be able to swap out the factory head unit for the aftermarket you've chosen without making any changes to your current connection to the sub itself.
    [ Jeremy  Dec 03, 2017 ]
