Positioning Technology: The INA-W900BT uses Alpine's OnPoint
Advanced GPS Positioning, ensuring your vehicle stays accurately positioned on
the map even in areas where it's difficult to receive GPS reception, such as in
a tunnel or around tall buildings. OnPoint simultaneously uses three
technologies - satellite-linked positioning data, gyro sensor technology (to
determine the vehicle's direction) and accelerometer technology (to gauge the
vehicle's speed) - resulting in continuous coverage of the location of your
Voice Guidance/Text to Speech: In addition to graphical
on-screen directions and maps, the INA-W900BT provides voice guidance and

the top of the display; this makes it easy to see the direction of the next
turn on the map
- 3D View: offers you a more realistic perspective by
tilting the map and displaying it with a horizon line; streets are displayed
as you approach them instead of from a birds-eye view
Map Color: The INA-W900BT offers 12 color settings for the map
Setting A Destination: The Alpine INA-W900BT offers several
ways to select a destination:

Point-of-Interest (POI) locations stored on the flash drive; destinations
are sorted by POI Name or by POI Category and are listed in order of
distance from your current location; search near your current location, near
your destination, along your current route, or near a specific city
- History: choose from recent destinations
- Address Book: save frequented locations in the unit's
address book to quickly add as a destination
- Intersection: enter a street name (you can first enter

city/state you're in, allowing you to view and control your music playback and
still see your next turn.
