A fresh face for your double-DIN dash opening

Alpine's iLX-507 digital multimedia receiver gives you trademark Alpine sound improvements and ease of use, just like its many predecessors have. What sets this radio apart is how great it looks, with a sweet high-resolution 7" touchscreen that provides plenty of info along with colors and details that pop. What's more, the iLX-507 works with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ in both wired and wireless configurations, so you can choose how connected you want your phone to be. Your double-DIN (4" tall) dash opening deserves a new look, and this Alpine can fit the bill and fill the void perfectly.

The iLX-507's slim chassis gives you extra room for your wiring harnesses in most double-DIN (4" tall) dash openings)

High-resolution display

We live in an 8K world now, so there's no reason your stereo's screen can't look a little better. Alpine gave this display a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, so your album artwork and other information will be clear and focused. When you're parked and checking out some video, the iLX-507 can act as a drive-in theater — just bring your own popcorn.

Take your entertainment on the road

Even without a disc player, the iLX-507 offers lots of ways to enjoy your media. Dual rear USB inputs let you attach your smartphone or a thumb drive with your favorite music or video files. The rear HDMI connection allows you to hook up to an optional CD/DVD or Blu-Ray player. An auxiliary input lets you bring in audio from another source, such as an old-school portable disc player. 

Add some security

Rear-view camera owners will appreciate the included camera inputs and distance guidance display. The inputs work with Alpine's advanced HD dash cam/rear-view cam combo for all-over coverage of your vehicle. And if you'd like to add an additional camera, like Alpine's optional HCE-C2100RD multi-view camera, you'll need this 2-camera switcher (not included). The camera inputs are compatible with Alpine cameras only; Alpine includes one composite video adapter for connecting a non-Alpine camera. 

Works with both wired and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

The iLX-507's compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you and your passengers can enjoy messaging, mapping, tune selection, and much more from your smartphone. Both platforms work with voice commands, which you can activate by speaking a keyword or pressing the dedicated "Voice" button on the stereo's bezel. You can use either platform with your phone plugged in or wirelessly. Get more info at and

Built-in Bluetooth®

The iLX-507 continues Alpine's long relationship with Bluetooth connectivity. Use it to make or receive hands-free phone calls via your smartphone with the included microphone, or stream music from your phone with ease. You can also use the included microphone to activate voice commands for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The iLX-507's high-definition 7" screen delivers plenty of info in clear, easy-to-read detail

Make your home screen more relatable

Along the bottom of the iLX-507's bezel you'll find some helpful buttons, including a dedicated microphone button to activate voice controls for CarPlay and Android Auto. You can also customize your home screen with up to 3 pages of functions that you want to access — choose among 22 different offerings, including a clock and your various audio sources. You can even upload a photo from a thumb drive to serve as your wallpaper on the attractive 7" display.

Radio options for sound and variety

HD Radio

The iLX-507 boasts excellent entertainment choices up and down the dial:

  • HD Radio™ reception: 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.

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

Got streaming?

When your smartphone is connected, this Alpine's ready to roll with your favorite streaming services. Pull up playlists, albums, and more with ease, and check out the information on the iLX-507's gorgeous display. Tidal users will have full array of the service's high-res audio offerings at their disposal, with a custom app interface right on the radio's display. You can explore it all when you're connected to a wi-fi hotspot, and some Tidal features may require a subscription.  

Big-time audio, too

The iLX-507's not only a pretty face, it also boasts plenty of ways to keep your ears happy. You can use its many fingertip-friendly controls to set the EQ — this Alpine offers both Basic and Advanced tuning options, with 13-band parametric adjustments, time correction, and much more.  And it works with lossless FLAC files to give you the thrilling digital media experience you crave. You'll be sure to hear the results thanks to Alpine's commitment to using high-quality audio components, such as a full-digital power integrated circuit and custom capacitors to keep the signal strong, clean, and free of noise.

Add a wireless volume knob

Our customers are often very loud and clear about how much they miss volume knobs on today's stereos, especially the ones with touchscreens. Alpine's RUX-H02 Halo wireless level controller (sold separately) lets you mount a convenient knob nearly anywhere you like, thanks to its Bluetooth connectivity. You can add a rotary volume knob and subwoofer level controller without running additional wires, for the ultimate in mounting flexibility. Turn up the sound, the old-school way!

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras

This Alpine offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out engine performance data and other vehicle data on the Alpine's screen. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to your Shopping Cart if it's compatible.

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.

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

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.

    Touchscreen & Steering Wheel Controls

    7" Capacitive Touchscreen: The 7" capacitive touchscreen boasts a 1280 x 720 RGB resolution (2,764,800 total pixels) with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The touchscreen monitor provides a balanced picture, not over-emphasizing dark or light areas, so album art, map screens, and videos are seen with greater clarity. The capacitive touchscreen requires less pressure, responds faster, and can recognize multiple touch points simultaneously; all advantages when compared to traditional resistive touchscreen displays.

    • Swipe Operation: The new swipe control interface is designed for easy use so drivers can keep their eyes on the road. You can move your finger lightly with a swipe - up, down, left, or right. You can also touch a button or list item on the screen lightly for selection. You can even touch and hold the desired item, then drag it to its new location by moving your finger, then release your finger to place the item.
    • Variable Screen Color: You can choose 8 different screen color images (Glass Blue, Glass Green, Glass Light Blue, Glass Red, Glass White, Steel Blue Green, Steel Amber, and Steel Red).
    • Brightness Control: You can adjust the brightness of the LCD backlight from -15 to +15 and the brightness of the button illumination from -2 to +2. You can then select one of the following modes for both the LCD's backlight and button illumination - 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), or Off (keeps the background illumination of the monitor bright).

    Note: For safety and legal reasons, the iLX-507 features a video lock-out feature to prevent the driver from viewing a video source (AUX, HDMI, & USB) while the vehicle is in motion. To watch a video source, the vehicle must be stopped with the parking brake engaged and the ignition in the ACC or ON position. CarPlay & Android Auto do not require the Parking Brake to be engaged. The parking brake wire must also be connected and the parking brake engaged for certain setup functions and menu options.

    Push-Button Controls: Conveniently located Power/Home Screen, Audio Source, Volume Up/Down, Mute, Voice Recognition, Camera, Maps, and Previous/Next Track buttons are accessible along the bottom edge of the 7" capacitive touchscreen for quick access and simple control.

    Beep Guide: This function will give audible feedback with varying tones depending upon the button pressed. This feature can be turned On or Off.

    Steering Wheel Control Input: The head unit features a 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).

    Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

    Built-In WiFi: The Alpine iLX-507 features built-in WiFi wireless connectivity specifically designed to support a cable free connection between your Apple iPhone or Android smartphone and the receiver for Wireless Apple CarPlay and Wireless Android Auto.

    • GPS Antenna: Before using CarPlay or Android Auto, make sure the included GPS antenna is properly connected. The GPS antenna is required for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay navigation maps (including Google Maps, Apple Maps, and Waze). The GPS antenna comes with a self-stick pad which mounts it on top of your dash inside the vehicle.
    • Data Plan Required: Access to CarPlay and Android Auto apps will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or Android smartphone to connect to the Internet. Your compatible Apple or Android device will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, LTE (4G), or WiFi.

    Wireless Apple CarPlay: Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone 6S or newer in the car, while you stay focused on the road. Your iPhone can be connected to the Alpine iLX-507 wirelessly via WiFi + Bluetooth or hardwired via its rear-panel Black USB-A port (labeled "USB1 2.4A"). An iPhone 6S or newer (running iOS 9.0+) is required for a wireless connection, while an iPhone 6S or newer (running iOS 7.1+) is required for a hardwired connection. Apple CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and integrates them into the Alpine iLX-507. 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 in-dash digital multimedia receiver. With Apple CarPlay, you can control these functions from the Alpine receiver's 11" touchscreen or activate Siri for minimized distraction.

    • Maps: Apple Maps will be mirrored on the screen, including traffic information and estimated time to destination. Use the head unit's touchscreen or ask Siri to get turn-by-turn directions. You can search by address, favorites, recents, points-of-interests, and more. CarPlay can even predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. You can also choose to navigate via Google Maps or Waze instead of CarPlay. Google Maps and Waze do not support Siri voice control, but will have their own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver.
    • Phone: Use the head unit's touchscreen or ask Siri to make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemail messages. Caller ID information will be displayed on the receiver's touchscreen. You'll carry on your side of the conversation through the included microphone, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's speakers.
    • Messages: Ask Siri to send, read, and reply to text messages. This hands-free operation minimizes distraction and allows you to keep hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Text messages cannot be read or typed from the head unit's touchscreen to prevent driver distraction.
    • Music: You can access music by artist, song, playlist, and more through the receiver's touchscreen or via Siri. The receiver will display artist/song/album information (including album art in the background). You can access your iPhone's iTunes music library, as well as Apple Music. In addition, you can access other music apps that you have on your iPhone; including Amazon Music, Tidal, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, TuneIn Radio, SiriusXM, Slacker Radio, Google Play Music & more.
    • Apple HomeKit: CarPlay now supports control of Apple HomeKit enabled devices (sold separately) through Siri. Using CarPlay in your vehicle, you can ask Siri to close or open your garage door, turn on or off home lighting, increase or decrease the temperature of your thermostat, as well as control select functions of other Apple HomeKit enabled devices and appliances. Click here for a list of compatible Apple HomeKit products.
    • Other Applications: In addition to navigation and music apps, Apple CarPlay supports a variety of other applications ranging from Podcasts, Audiobooks, Sports, News, Weather, and More.


    • You must use the rear-panel Black USB-A port (labeled "USB 1 2.4") for wired Apple CarPlay. The USB-A port is attached to rear-channel of the head unit by a 39" cable. Use a Lightning-to-USB cable that is under 6' long and avoid using any extension cable.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is being used.

    Wireless Android Auto: The Alpine iLX-507 supports Android Auto with select Android smartphones using a wireless or wired connection. A Google or Samsung smartphone with Android OS 10.0+ or any smartphone with Android OS 11.0+ and 5GHz WiFi can utilize Android Auto Wireless with the Alpine receiver using the latest version of the Android Auto app, plus a WiFi and Bluetooth connection. Android smartphones running Lollipop 5.0 or higher can also be hardwired to the iLX-507 via the head unit's rear-panel Black USB-A port (labeled " USB 1 2.4A") and Bluetooth. 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 a simple on-screen user interface. It's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead.

    • Google Assistant: With Google Assistant on Android Auto, you can keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel while using your voice to help you with your daily commute. Simply say, "Ok Google" or press the mic button to activate the Google Assistant. Use the Google Assistant to make a call, send a message, reply to a message, get driving directions, or listen to music.
    • Navigation Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. You can use the unit's touchscreen or Google Assistant to select your destination and route. If you prefer, you can switch over to a simpler version of the community-based Waze navigation app (version 4.27 or higher).
    • Calls & Messages: Android Auto's Google Assistant lets you stay connected while you're driving. The Google Assistant lets you use voice commands to call phone numbers and your favorite contacts, as well as read-reply-send text messages; all while keeping your hands on the wheel.
    • Music Apps: Android Auto gives you access to your Android smartphone's music library via YouTube 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 or the Google Assistant to select songs, artists, albums, or playlists. You also get access to select music apps on your Android smartphone; including Amazon Music, Tidal, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Slacker Radio, Tune-In, and more. Music apps include song and station browsing, plus song/artist information and album art or station logo. Click here for a list of all compatible app for Android Auto.


    • The initial setup for Android Auto requires that your vehicle be stopped and the parking brake is engaged. You will need to connect the parking brake wire of the receiver's harness to your vehicle's parking brake circuit for the head unit to recognize that the vehicle's parking brake is engaged.
    • You must use the rear-panel Black USB-A port (labeled "USB 1 2.4") for wired Android Auto. The USB-A port is attached to rear-channel of the head unit by a 39" cable. Use a USB cable that is under 6' long and avoid using any extension cable.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is being used.

    Smartphone Charging: The Black USB-A port (labeled " USB1 2.4A") is rated at 5V/2.4A and will charge your Android Auto compatible Android smartphone or Apple CarPlay compatible iPhone while connected via USB with the vehicle's ignition switch set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. There is also a rear-panel Grey USB-A port (labeled "USB2 1.5A For Charging") that can be used to charge an additional smartphone device. This USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected device when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position.

    USB & HDMI Integration

    USB MSC Playback: In addition to Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, the head unit's Black rear-panel USB-A port (labeled USB1/2.4A) allows you to connect a USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) device; such as a USB thumbdrive. The USB-A port is attached to the rear chassis of the unit by a 39" cable. The unit supports playback of a variety of audio (including Hi-Res) 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. 2.4A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    • For safety and legal reasons, the iLX-507 features a video lock-out feature to prevent the driver from viewing a USB video or photo file while the vehicle is in motion. To watch a video or photo file, the vehicle must be stopped with the parking brake engaged and the ignition in the ACC or ON position.
    • The USB port does not support MTP or AOA playback for Android devices. The USB port cannot be connected to a USB hub or card-reader.

    iPhone Audio Playback: If you don't desire Apple CarPlay, the head unit's Black rear-panel USB-A port (labeled "USB1 2.4A") can also be used to connect an Apple iPhone device with Lightning connector for music playback only. You'll be able to playback stored music and music apps from your your compatible Apple iPhone device. The USB-A port is attached to the rear chassis of the unit by a 39" cable. The USB port provides 2.4A of current to power and charge your connected iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position (if your iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it).

    • Head Unit Control: The Alpine iLX-507 lets you navigate your 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.
    • Song/Artist Information: The Alpine in-dash digital media receiver will display your 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.

    Note: Compatible Apple iPhone devices include the iPhone 6S and newer.

    HDMI Input/Output: The Alpine iLX-507 is outfitted with a full-size, rear-panel HDMI input for an all digital audio and video connection to an optional DVD player or mobile device. The full-size, rear-panel HDMI output allows you to enjoy the unit's HDMI input audio/video signal on an optional rear view entertainment system (such as an overhead or headrest monitor). The HDMI input and output support up 480p and 720p video.

    • Optional DVD Player: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. The iLX-507 offers touchscreen control for the Alpine DVE-5300 DVD player. Playback functions for other HDMI connected source devices will need to be controlled from your device or the remote that came with your source device (not the iLX-507).
    • Mobile Device Mirroring: The HDMI input can also be used to mirror select Apple iPhones with Lightning connect and select Android smartphones that are MHL compatible, so you can watch videos and photos, as well as listen to audio through the Alpine iLX-507. There is no touchscreen control from the Alpine head unit; you will still continue to use your mobile device to select content, apps, and control playback. An Apple or Android/MHL adapter (both sold separately) will be required to make a HDMI connection.


    • Not all devices with an HDMI input or output will be supported by the Alpine iLX-507.
    • For safety and legal reasons, the iLX-507 features a video lock-out feature to prevent the driver from viewing a HDMI video source while the vehicle is in motion. To watch a video source, the vehicle must be stopped with the parking brake engaged and the ignition in the ACC or ON position.

    USB Charging Port: There is also a rear-panel Grey USB-A port (labeled "USB2 1.5A For Charging") that can be used to charge an additional smartphone device. This USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected device when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. This USB charging port is attached to rear chassis via a 39" cable.

    Note: This USB port does not support media playback from USB MSC devices, Apple iOS devices, or Android devices.

      • 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 then search the contacts of your phonebook alphabetically.
      • Call History: The previously dialed, received, or missed numbers (90 total) can be retrieved and dialed from memory.
    Note: You can emphasize or weaken the volume level of the phone caller, the ring tone, and the microphone input to fit your own preference.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Alpine iLX-507 can stream stored music, music apps, and other content from your Bluetooth source device (such as your iPhone or Android smartphone). The iLX-507 will be able to control playback functions such as Folder/File Search, Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Random/Repeat. The head unit will also display your stored music's song information; such as Artist name & Song/Album title (no Album Art). In addition to Bluetooth's standard SBC codec, the Alpine receiver also supports Apple's AAC codec and Sony's LDAC.

    • SBC: The SBC (Sub-Band Coding) is Bluetooth's standard audio codec that is universally compatible with all Bluetooth-enable devices. SBC supports up to 320kbps.
    • AAC: AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is a step-up from Bluetooth's standard SBC codec and is Apple's standard audio codec. AAC supports up to 250kbps.

    Audio & DSP Section

    CTA-2006 Compliant: The specifications given by Alpine for the built-in amplifier comply with the CTA-2006 mobile amplifier power testing and measurement standards from the CTA (Consumer Technology Association). All manufacturers who comply with the standard can display the CTA-2006 logo on their product.

    • CTA-2006 Power Rating: 18 watts x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Max Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 watts total)
    Note: Add the KTP-445A Head Unit Power Pack (500KTP445A, sold separately) to deliver 45 watts x 4-channel RMS of power. The KTP-445A is compact enough to install behind the Alpine receiver. It plugs in-line with the head unit's wiring harness, so you don't even need additional wires.

    6ch/4V Preouts + Sub Control: The iLX-507 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: The iLX-507 offers high & low pass crossovers for the head unit's front and rear speaker and preamp outputs. It also has a low pass crossover for the subwoofer preamp outputs. These high pass and low pass crossovers limit the frequencies delivered to the receiver's speaker and preamp 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).

    • Front & Rear HPF/LPF: The Alpine head unit is equipped with a high pass filter and low pass filter for its front & rear speaker-level outputs and preamp outputs. You can set the unit's high pass filter center frequency point to 20, 25, 31.5, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, or 250 Hz. You can set the unit's low pass filter center frequency point to 4k, 5k, 6.3k, 8k, 10k, 12.5k, 16k, or 20k Hz. The slope of the high pass and low pass filters can be set to 6, 12, 18, or 24 dB/oct. The level of the HPF and LPF can be set to -12 to 0 dB.
    • Subwoofer LPF: The unit's subwoofer output low pass filter can be set to 20, 25, 31.5, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, or 250 Hz. The slope of the low pass filter can be set to 6, 12, 18, or 24 dB/oct. The level of the LPF can be set to -12 to 0 dB.

    Equalizer: The iLX-507 digital media receiver offers simple Bass & Treble, 10 EQ Presets, and a 13-Band EQ to tailor the receiver's sound to your preference, application, and content.

    • 10 EQ Presets: You can choose between 10 EQ Presets - including Flat, Pop, Rock, News, Jazz, Electronic, Hip Hop, Easy Listening, Country, and Classical.
    • 13-Band EQ: The 13-Band EQ (63, 125, 200, 315, 500, 630, 1k, 2k, 3.15k, 5k, 8k, 12.5k, and 20k Hz) features a Basic and Advanced mode. The Basic mode allows you to adjust the 13-Band EQ for the Front speaker pair, Rear speaker pair, and Subwoofer outputs. The Advanced mode goes a step further by allowing you to adjust the 13-Band EQ independently for each speaker including Front Left, Front Right, Rear Left, Rear Right, and Subwoofer.
    • Bass & Treble: In addition to the EQ Presets and 13-Band EQ, the receiver offers simple Bass & Treble control, along with balance and fader adjustment.

    Audio Enhancements: The iLX-507 provides Time Correction, Media Xpander HD, and Bass Engine to enhance your listening experience in the vehicle.

    • Time Correction: This unit is able to delay the audio signal to the speakers closest to the listener with its built-in Time Correction feature. 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. USB, iPhone, and SiriusXM will be able to reproduce the music more clearly even in vehicles with a lot of road noise.
    • Bass Engine: Bass Engine tuning changes bass sound characteristics by automatically adjusting different combinations of EQ, Sub Level and Crossover settings through the choice of five bass profiles (Standard, Punch, Rich, Mid Bass, Low Bass).

    Camera/OEM/Aux Connectivity

    Front & Rear Camera Inputs: The Alpine iLX-507 is outfitted with two 4-pin proprietary camera inputs for adding a rearview and frontview camera (sold separately). The proprietary inputs support Alpine rear and front cameras that feature the same 4-pin proprietary output. One composite video input adapter is included to allow the connection of a standard rearview or frontview camera (sold separately) with a composite video output.

    • Auto Switching: If a rear-view camera is connected, you should also connect the unit's reverse lead wire (Violet/white) 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 0.75 seconds.
    • Guidelines: The rear-view camera function also provides on-screen color-coded guidelines to assist you when backing up your vehicle into a parking space.
    • Visual Adjust: Visual Adjust lets you can change the picture quality (Brightness, Color, Contrast) for the connected camera.
    • Backup Mute: When the Backup Mute features is activated, the receiver's sound will be muted automatically when your vehicle's gear lever is moved to the reverse position.

    Note: The rear view camera feature is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

    Optional Dash Cam: The iLX-507 supports dash cam integration through the use of Alpine's DVR-C320R Dash Cam System (sold separately). The DVR-C320R includes a dash-camera with built-in DVR functions and comes with an interior rear camera, so you can view and record what is going on in front of the vehicle, as well as inside or behind the vehicle. The DVR-C320R plugs into a dedicated composite video input (labeled "Drive Recorder In") on the rear-panel of the Alpine receiver.

    iDatalink Maestro Compatible: When an Automotive Data Solutions iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 (sold separately) is connected to the Alpine receiver, it provides a seamless interface with factory infotainment features such as Satellite Radio, USB Media Player, Bluetooth hands-free and music streaming. Factory driver assistance systems and cameras are also retained and work as they did originally. In addition, parking sensor display and dynamic parking guide lines are added in supported vehicles on the rear camera screen. Vehicle information such as HVAC, performance information, and TPMS can even be displayed. Retained factory functions and add-on features will vary by vehicle.

    • The iDatalink Maestro RR/RR2 is web programmable, which means you'll need to flash the iDatalink Maestro RR interface module with the correct firmware from iDatalink's website.
    • In addition to flashing the iDatalink Maestro RR/RR2 module, you'll also need a vehicle specific harness (sold separately).
    • The Alpine receiver's OEM Setup menu must also be configured with your compatible vehicle's factory system before initial operation.

    Aux Input: The Alpine iLX-507 is outfitted with a rear-panel 3.5mm Aux input for connection of an external audio source device with a headphone or analog output.

    [ ricky  Feb 28, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    I would be happy to help here, Ricky. This is an easy fix brother, as long as the parking brake safety connection is made properly. Alpine radios operate a little differently to access the menus and deeper features, you will have to hit the parking brake TWICE in succession to allow access to those settings menus or any feature that is prohibited while moving. I hope this helps good buddy!

    Does it support digital audio output? Can you play through hdmi out to an digital Dsp ? If I want to use this HU play as digital audio output to a DSP.
    [ Ledzep  Jan 26, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    Greetings Ledzep, and thank you for your question. The only digital output on the iLX 507 is HDMI. Digital audio does come out that HDMI output, but not all HDMI devices are supported. By design, that HDMI in/out is to add a DVD player, or send out video and audio to another HDMI monitor. Best option for your answer is to be in direct contact with Alpine. Their number is 800-421-2284.

    How do I go into the settings on the iLx-507? When I try to touch the icon it's not highlighted and won't go to settings.
    [ Tony  Jan 15, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    If any options are greyed out, or do not let you access Tony I would check your parking brake safety connection. It's the yellow/blue wire in pin #6 of the main harness. It's important to connect that properly as Alpine units usually make you depress the parking brake twice to access the menu and settings options. We of course advise making sure this connection is properly connected to avoid any issues accessing the deeper menu and settings options. I hope this helps!

    Does this unit support 3 cameras inputs? Backup and two sides? And work on my Thor Quantum E450 current functionality? Thanks
    [ Devil_Dog  Jan 13, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    Greetings Devil_Dog, and thank you for your question. Most car type stereos will have a camera input or two. This has two but the second camera input is not the auto switching type. There are RV specific stereos that do have 3 camera inputs, and can auto switch when in reverse, or flip the turn signal on. Some RVs have a camera switched that terminates to a single camera input on a stereo as well. So I guess if you have the switcher in your RV, this can replace your current model stereo. If not, you would need a switcher.

    I have a ilxw-650 if I buy the ilx507 can I just unplug the 650 and plug the same connections into the 507 or is it a whole different install?
    [ Matthew  Jan 10, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    It does appear that the black 16-pin connector used for the main harness is the same on both radios, Matthew. The iLX-507 gets an upgraded Bluetooth microphone, as well as additional harness plugs for the preamp outputs and camera connections. If you are looking to swap out and upgrade to the iLX-407 we would recommend using the new harness with the iLX-507 and a pack of the Posi-connectors in the link below to splice your new harness in. I hope this helps!

    You may try doing a factory reset on your radio and see if that fixes the issue. If that does not fix the issue then it may be the unit itself that has a problem.

    Will ford pass app still work to remote start my 2022 ford transit 250 cargo?
    [ Nick G  Jan 03, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    We have some limited info here on the Ford Pass setup Nicholas, but I can still help. From the best information we could find the Ford Pass app works through the vehicles Wi-fi, and there are some aspects of SYNC that work through the Fordpass and also use the WiFi connection but that the RS feature is not actually part of SYNC. You should be able to change to an Alpine and keep those features, though we cannot confirm. It might be a good idea to contact the dealer as well to make certain.

    Does this unit work with the Alpine SGS-CH01 camera interface module?
    [ ALEXANDER  Dec 19, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    Greetings Alex, and thank you for your question. The Alpine SGS-CH01 is an interface to add an aftermarket camera to a factory in a 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler. The iLX-507 already has an input for a backup camera (RCA), and another second camera input (also RCA) so the SGS-CH01 would not be needed for the iLX-507.

    Is the tidal app search limited to favorites, etc or will it search the entire tidal catalog (while driving)?
    [ Dom  Nov 19, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    When using Tidal through CarPlay or Android Auto with the Alpine iLX-507 you should have access to whatever level of subscription plan you are subscribing to allows Don, as long as you are connected to the data network. Since these radios display the Android Auto or CarPlay app essentially the same, any difference in app features could be specific Android Phone related. I hope this helps a little!

    Greetings Julio, and thank you for your question. We have not installed this Alpine into a 2022 Frontier, but that would be a tougher install at the moment as we do not have a easy fitting dash kit. As far as it working with your amplifier, I see no issues, its just getting it to mount in your dash.

    Does the kta-450 amplifier attach to this stereo with its supplied bracket?
    [ BENJAMIN  Nov 13, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    No. The KTA-450 only attaches to the ilX-W650 or iLX-407. The iLX-507 is shaped differently from the other two models and for this reason does not allow for the KTA-450 to attach.

    I have 6 speakers in my 2015 Toyota Rav4 (non JBL System) but I see Alpine iLX -507 is only has a 4 channel internal amp. Do I need to add a separate 2 channel amplifier to power the other pair of factory speakers on the car?
    [ Matthew  Oct 19, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    Greetings Matt, and thank you for your question. Your factory RAV4 radio is a 4 channel as well. Your dash speakers and door speakers are wired in parallel on each side, so basically the front 4 speakers just need 2 channels from the radio.

    The Alpine has a built in 4 channel amp putting out 14 watts RMS per channel but you may want to consider getting an aftermarket amplifier if you want more power.

    Are the back up guide lines dynamic or fixed? Can I use the factory cam( 2015 Frontier)?
    [ DANIEL  Sep 16, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. This will depend largely on your vehicle.

    Do I have to use the Alpine HCE-C2100RD to operate the multi-angle Alpine HCE-C2600FD front cam?
    [ HAN  Sep 12, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    You don't have to use the HCE-C2100RD to operate the HCE-C2600FD but you would need to either use a compatible Alpine radio or the KCX-C250MC multi-camera selector connected to an Alpine car stereo.

    Why is there a GPS antenna if there is no navigation function on this unit? I started installation today and don't understand why I need it.
    [ NICHOLAS  Sep 04, 2022 ]

    Greetings Nicholas, and thank you for your question. Next time you are in the middle of an install, please call in to tech support. Questions posted on our website can take up to 2-3 days and even longer if we have to get in touch with the manufacture. That was the case here. I know most if not all stereos with wireless Carplay/Android Auto need those GPS antennas to get accurate and fast information to the stereo for navigation. Wired does not need the antenna. I called Alpine tech, and he did say you would not need to install the antenna if you were doing wired Carplay/Android Auto, but for wireless its a must. On another note, the Alpine gets its time from the GPS satellites. Without the antenna you would not be able to set your clocks time. If your dashboard is plastic like most today, he said put the antenna right on top of the stereo chassis, then into the dash.

    how far do the buttons stick out from the radio? is it something that is very noticable?
    [ Jalin  Sep 04, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    Greetings Jalin, and thank you for your question. I checked every inch of the manual. I contacted Alpine, and because that information is not in the manual, it would take someone opening up a box and measure it. The tech did not have any iLX 507s handy. It might be a while before we can open up a box and measure ourselves. I did not want you to think we forgot. I will update the response as soon as I have the measurements.

    Do you have to upload a specific vehicle program for this headunit or is it good to go out of the box for any vehicle?
    [ GRANT  Sep 02, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    Greetings Grant. The Alpine like most stereos are universal. They need mounting adapters, and wire adapters that are not included in the stereo package. Add the stereo with your vehicle listed, and we will pop up a list of needed install gear on our website. In some cases, the wiring adapter may need a program to be uploaded to that interface before the stereo can be installed. That would depend on the vehicle, and the interface offered for that vehicle.

    Are there known issues with Android Auto / Car Play maps/navigation? Seems to lag by minutes or not update at all (both bad for navigation).
    [ Yev  Aug 18, 2022 ]

    If you are having issues with your Alpine iLX-507 unit Yev we would want you to give us a call first to help troubleshoot. Alpine did release a new update on these units recently that covers connection issues with Carplay/Android auto, I've posted the link to that update below. If you have not updated your unit since June 2022 or so try the new firmware on this link first Yev! Also for Android specifically you'll need to use a high bandwith cable if you are going wired that helps too.

    Does this support vehicle speed signal?

    The Alpine iLX-507 supports the speed sensor which is the green/white lead on the radio's harness. Pages 111-113 of this PDF will show you all the wire harness colors for this Alpine

    If my vehicle has SiriusXM from the factory (2015 Jeep Patriot) will it connect to this unit or is a different adapter needed?
    [ Gary  Aug 10, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    Your vehicle's satellite radio tuner for SiriusXM is located inside of the factory radio, which means we'll need a new tuner to go along with the new aftermarket radio. In this case, you'll need the SXV300V1 tuner and iDatalink SAT2 antenna adapter. Below are links for both parts. SXV300V1: SAT2: Additional parts will be necessary for the radio installation, but there are several options for parts packages. For help with choosing the correct installation kit package, please give our advisors a call at 1-800-324-9695.

    Can I used the factory Sync microphone in my 2014 F-150 or do I need to install the one provided with the unit?
    [ DAVID  Jul 09, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    You can retain the Ford Sync option in the 2014 Ford F150 with the Alpine iLX-507 and compatible wiring interface for the Ford pickup. However, you will need to install the microphone included with the Alpine iLX-507 for Apple CarPlay & Android Auto features.

    That's a great question Chris, and it will! This radio's rear-view camera function will provide on-screen color-coded guidelines to assist you when backing up your vehicle into a parking space

    Can you confirm if the ILX-507 is a single Din chassis or double din? Crutchfield pictures show single din chassis
    [ Mike  May 10, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    The ILX-507 does in fact have a single din chassis. It does fit in double-DIN (4" tall) dash openings with a car specific dash kit.
