If you are in the Mankato area and are looking for a unique source unit upgrade that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, drop by Sweet Sounds and check out the new Alpine Halo 9. Known formally as the iLX-F309, this unit features a 9-inch display screen that floats in front of a compact radio chassis. This unique design allows the Halo 9 to work in vehicles where conventional double-DIN multimedia radios won’t fit.
Unique Floating Display Design
The Halo 9 concept is an extension of Alpine’s Restyle products and opens up a new world of options for our clients. The 9-inch hovering capacitive touchscreen is an impressive 66 percent larger than conventional 7-inch LCD screens. This large screen makes viewing maps and other information much safer and easier.
The display can be adjusted by our installation team to match the angle of your dash, and we have several mounting depth options to make sure the system looks great in your vehicle.
Alpine Halo 9 Features
The iLX-F309 is a digital media receiver with AM/FM and built-in HD Radio. We can upgrade the unit to include SiriusXM satellite radio by adding an SXV300 tuner module. Of course, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you the ability to play all the music stored on your smartphone or choose from amazing streaming services like Pandora, iHeartRadio, Tidal and many more. You can make phone calls, send text messages and check your voicemail using voice commands.
Vehicle Integration Features
The iLX-F309 includes a backup camera input, allowing us to add a camera to make parking easier and safer. Compatibility with the iDatalink Maestro integration system allows factory entertainment systems like Ford Sync and Chrysler uConnect to work with the radio. Many factory-installed parking systems and USB ports are compatible with the new radio. Talk to us to find out which functions are available for your specific application.
