Features

Multi-Camera Selector Interface: The Alpine KCX-C250MC Multi-Camera Selector Interface allows as many as three camera systems (Front, Rear, & Side) to be connected to and controlled from select Alpine in-dash navigation receivers.

Head Unit Compatibility: The Multi-Camera Selector Interface is compatible with 2016-up Alpine 10" Restyle navigation receivers (X110-SLV for 2014-up Chevrolet Silverado / X110-SRA for 2014-up GMC Sierra), 9" Restyle navigation receivers (X109D for various trucks and SUVs), 8" navigation receivers (X108U for various trucks and SUVs), and 7" navigation receivers (INE-W967HD, INE-W977HD, or INE-W987HD for universal applications).

Note: The KCX-C250MC Multi-Camera Selector Interface is only compatible with select Alpine navigation receivers and no other brand.

Camera Compatibility: The KCX-C250MC allows you to connect up to 3 cameras (Rear, Front, & Side). You can connect 3 proprietary Alpine cameras (see accessory list) or connect a combination of Alpine and other brands of cameras (adapters required).

  • 3 Proprietary Alpine Cameras: You can connect up to 3 Alpine cameras which feature a proprietary multi-pin connector. Choose from the Alpine HCE-C1100, HCE-C125, HCE-C2100RD, HCE-C252RD, HCE-C257FD, HCE-C2600FD, or HCE-TCAM1-WRA (all sold separately).
  • 2 Proprietary Alpine Cameras + 1 Universal Camera: The compatible Alpine navigation receivers each come with one proprietary connector to composite video camera adapter, so you can connect one universal camera (sold separately) with a composite video jack. You can then connect two of the Alpine proprietary cameras (listed above).
  • 3 Universal Cameras: The compatible Alpine navigation receivers each come with one proprietary connector to composite video camera adapter, so you can connect one universal camera (sold separately) with a composite video jack. If you would like to connect two more universal cameras, you will need two Alpine camera input adapters (not sold by Crutchfield).

Touchscreen Control: The KCX-C250MC Multi-Camera Selector allows you to control your Alpine multiple camera system from your compatible Alpine navigation receiver's touchscreen. The names of the connected camera systems (Front, Side, & Rear) appear on the touchscreen, so you can simply select the camera system you want to use. You can then choose the viewing option from that camera to be displayed on the receiver's LCD touchscreen.

Note: When your vehicle's reverse gear is selected, the image from the rearview camera is displayed first. You can then select to view front or side cameras.

Proprietary Connectors: The KCX-C250MC is fitted with 3 proprietary camera inputs (labeled "Rear Camera", "Front Camera", and "Side Camera") which will be used to plug in your compatible Alpine camera system's proprietary harness. The KCX-C250MC is also fitted with a proprietary video output connectors (labeled "Power/V.Out") which is used to connect the multi-camera selector interface to your compatible Alpine navigation receiver's proprietary camera input, using the included wiring harness.

Power & Ground: The Alpine KCX-C250MC Multi-Camera Selector Interface will require a separate +12V switched and ground hardwired connection inside the vehicle.

Q
If i have the Alpine restyle dash kit and have a rear view camera ready and I want to add a grill front camera do I have to ge t this?
[ bubba  Jun 28, 2018 ]
6 answers
A
Yeah, the unit is required to be able to add a second camera. I'd recommend against it. The Alpine camera is a very wide angle camera and hard to place in a good spot in the Jeep. It's also not going to be viewable unless you press at least 3 buttons on the screen. (Menu, Camera, switch to front view). It doesn't connect to any parking sensors so in short, its very unusable. The only place I'd say its good for is off-roading, turned on manually and placed properly to view the very front.
[ MOSHE  Jul 02, 2018 ]
A
YES! To have back-up camera and Forward facing camera you must use that interface.
[ Ricardo  Jul 02, 2018 ]
A
Yes, it is required for multiple cameras.
[ Troy  Jul 02, 2018 ]

Yes, this unit allows you to add three cameras. The front, the side, and the rear.
[ scott  Jul 02, 2018 ]

Yes, there is only 1 camera input to the head unit. The module allows you to select which camera to display as well as the default backup cam.

Q
Will this work for the new alphine ilx-f309?
[ Daryl  Feb 12, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Based on the preliminary information we have so far on the ILX-F309, yes, we expect the KCX-X250MC to be compatible but, this is subject to change. I hope that helps. My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan

Q
Can you view all 3 cameras at one time?
[ Ronald  Oct 05, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
I don't think so. I can only see one at a time. I think this is for the newer radios that only have one one camera port. My x008u had a digital and rca input. The 208u only has one input. You need this to use the front or sides.
[ George  Oct 06, 2017 ]

NO the installer told me that I need cable adapters

Q
Will this be compatible with the ilx-107?
[ Paulius  Jul 09, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
No. The KCX-C250MC is compatible with select Alpine navigation receivers. The ILX-107 is not a navigation receiver. You will find the list of compatible Alpine stereo models by clicking the "Details" tab on the adapter's main webpage and scrolling down below the "features & specs" table.

Thanks for your question. You can check the "Accessories" tab on the interface product page to see compatible cameras. There is one listed specifically for the camera selector. I have added the link below. If you have further questions I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer any questions you may have. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_500HCEC257/Alpine-HCE-C257FD.html
