Crutchfield: Why Alpine Car Stereos Are Great
Our take on the Alpine INA-W910 by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
In-dash maps, hands-free calling, PANDORA® Internet radio, HD Radio™...this Alpine stereo gives you a lot to love
Get out and enjoy the road with Alpine's INA-W910 navigation receiver. It'll help you get where you're going and gives you a big 7" touchscreen, while delivering outstanding Alpine sound quality.
Maps and free lifetime traffic
Find your way to your destination with ease — the INA-W910 comes equipped with maps of the U.S. and Canada, featuring spoken, turn-by-turn directions. Alpine's GuideView™ gives you a picture-in-picture window so you can keep track of the next turn or the local speed limit while you're playing tunes from your iPod® or PANDORA®. Plus you'll get a free lifetime traffic subscription, which lets you know if traffic's backed up along your drive, and recalculates your route as needed.
Play PANDORA®, plus enjoy your iPod and iPhone®
Millions of people love PANDORA®, and the INA-W910 lets you enjoy it on its big 7" screen. First, you need to download a free PANDORA® iPhone app, then connect your iPhone to the receiver's USB input. Then you can select PANDORA® as a source and use the receiver's controls to navigate your stations. You'll see album art and song info, and you can rate songs with a "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" so that PANDORA® knows what music to play for you. Plus you can create a new station on the fly — when PANDORA® plays a song you like, you can create a station based upon that song or artist with a tap of the screen.
Enjoy album art from your iPod or iPhone, plus use the INA-W910's screen to navigate your music library. You also can switch control to the iPod itself so a passenger can pick the tunes without leaning over the seat.
If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Hands-on Research" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.
Enjoy crystal-clear HD Radio™
Alpine built an HD Radio tuner into the INA-W910, giving you access to static-free, all-digital AM/FM HD Radio broadcasts. Traditional FM sounds near CD-quality, while AM sounds more like traditional FM. Many stations broadcast alternative programming on a secondary frequency, giving you even more options. And with your iPod connected, you can "tag" songs you like on HD Radio stations for purchasing later in the iTunes™ store.
Talk hands free
Built-in Bluetooth® from industry leader Parrot lets you make and receive calls from the INA-W910's touchscreen. You can adjust the gain on the echo-canceling mic so your callers can hear you loud and clear. Your maps stay up on the screen while you talk, and you can even configure the INA-W910 to announce a turn while you're talking.
Bluetooth note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.
Add SiriusXM Satellite Radio
The INA-W910 works with SiriusXM's SXV200 XM tuner, which is about the size of a deck of cards and connects directly to the receiver. Once connected, you can pause and rewind live broadcasts, plus get a heads up when your favorite artists or teams are playing on another channel. And with an iPod connected, you can tag songs for purchasing later in the iTunes™ store. An XM subscription is required.
A digital-to-analog converter (DAC) turns the digital information stored on your CDs and in your music files back into music. This Alpine receiver uses a Burr-Brown 24-bit DAC, universally recognized for its smooth, superior sound. If sound quality's important to you, you'll really appreciate this receiver's performance, especially if you're building a full audio system in your vehicle.
You can dial in the perfect tone for your vehicle with the robust 7-band EQ. If you plan to add on, three sets of high-powered, 4-volt preamp outputs send a clean signal to your amps and subs. For the ultimate in sound tweaking, the INA-W910 works with Alpine's PXA-H800 audio processor.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Alpine stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the INA-W910, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Map Color: The INA-W910 offers 12 daytime/nighttime color settings for the map screen.
GuideView Window: Exclusive to the INA-W910, Alpine's new GuideView Window gives you a convenient picture-in-picture navigation window while the unit is in audio display/mode. If you input a destination, the GuideView Window will display the next maneuver as you head towards your destination. Even when you are not routing towards a specific destination, the GuideView Window will display a digital compass, current street or freeway you are traveling on, and city/state you are currently driving in so you always know where you are headed. You can even touch the GuideView Window to show the posted speed limit of the road you are driving on. This versatile functionality allows you to efficiently view and control your music playback and still view your next turn, without having to exit out of your audio screen.
Voice Guidance/Text to Speech: In addition to graphical on-screen directions and maps, the INA-W910 provides voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions, capable of text-to-speech (TTS), announcing the street names along with the turn directions. With turn-by-turn instructions delivered by Text-to-Speech (TTS) technology, street names, freeway numbers and freeway exit names are announced clearly through your vehicle's audio system.

Smart Key Filtering: Alpine's Smart Key Filtering program highlights only the possible next letters as you spell street names, city names, or POI names.
OnPoint Positioning Technology: The INA-W910 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 vehicle.
Setting A Destination: The Alpine INA-W910 offers several ways to select a destination:
|Browse Map||tap a point on the map as your destination|
|Home||save your home address so you can quickly navigate to your house from anywhere|

TMC (Traffic Message Channel): The Alpine INA-W910 can provide you with even better routes if Traffic Message Channel (TMC) information is available along your route. TMC is a specific application of the FM Radio Data System (RDS) used for broadcasting real-time traffic and weather information. The receiver will automatically search the FM radio stations for TMC data, and the decoded information will immediately be used in route planning. The moment Alpine Navigation Software receives traffic information that may affect your route, the program will warn you that it is recalculating the route, and navigation will continue with a new route that is optimal considering the most up-to-date traffic conditions. You can choose between 3 options for traffic avoidance.
