Alpine INE-W970HD navigation receiver

Works with both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®

The INE-W970HD'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 without touching any screens. 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 get stuff done without being distracted by your phone. Get more info at www.apple.com/ios/carplay and www.android.com/auto.

Stay on course with GPS directions

Alpine's navigation features start with detailed maps for the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You'll hear spoken directions with actual street names announced at turns. As you approach your next maneuver, the map automatically zooms to give you a better view. You can even change the display to show 3D terrain views or to incorporate 3D representations of buildings and landmarks. Lane guidance and junction view provide additional assurance for complicated interchanges.

A sharp screen and smart connections

The INE-W970HD boasts a beautiful 6.5" touchscreen, providing an easy-to-use home for your entertainment and information needs. You can see album artwork and song titles in a jiffy, or glean directions from the map without having to squint. Two USB inputs let you hook up a phone to one and a thumb drive with music or movies to the other at the same time. The HDMI input allows for smartphone mirroring with select Android devices, or you can add an external media source, like a Blu-ray player or game system. Two camera inputs let you see even more around your vehicle in tight situations.

Old-school disc owner? Play 'em to your heart's delight

Streaming might be the future for some, but many folks still enjoy the smartphone-free convenience of playing store-bought CDs or burned discs full of files. The INE-W970 lets you travel with all kinds of file formats, and you can enjoy CD-quality sound (or better) from the driver's seat. If you and your passengers want to catch a movie while parked, you can send the video signal from the stereo to your vehicle's rear-seat entertainment system.

HD Radio

HD Radio™, Pandora® Internet radio, and more

The INE-W970HD offers a wide variety of entertainment options in addition to the disc player:
 

  • 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 and iPhone and iPod® control: Easy on-screen control through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and you can also control Pandora through Bluetooth with your Android device if your device isn't connected.
  • Satellite radio compatibility: You can add SiriusXM programming to the receiver with an optional tuner and your paid subscription.

Trademark Alpine sound improvements

The receiver's 24-bit digital-to-analog converter provides excellent sonic reproduction for all your CDs and digital media sources, while the Time Correction feature lets you focus the stereo image for the driver's seat. Alpine's MediaXpander Pro technology makes your compressed audio sources sound as good as possible. Plus, you can customize the sound for your vehicle, including upholstery type, number of speakers, and speaker locations, for the optimum tuning settings. Alpine includes a Bass Boost direct key to let you pump the low end when the tune is calling for it.

Tweak your audio with the TuneIt app

The INE-W970HD also works with Alpine's TuneIt smartphone app, which is a real time-saver for making audio fixes. For starters, it allows you to create a user profile with info about your vehicle and Alpine system, including speakers and subs. You can then follow simple instructions for adjusting sound settings for your specific vehicle (if available), or choose from pre-made settings within the app designed by Alpine for both the vehicle and your speakers.

You can use your phone's touchscreen to make the changes to the 9-band parametric equalizer, crossover, and time correction with just a fingertip. You can then share your system and settings with other TuneIt app 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.

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.
