The iLX-007 is a mech-less in-dash receiver with a 7-inch touch screen with a flat-face design.
When Apple CarPlay is used on the iLX-007, users can control Apple CarPlay from the 7-inch screen or activate Siri. Corresponding audio, driving directions and phone calls are played through the vehicle’s speaker system.
The receiver has:
- Tree (2V) preouts.
- One aux input.
- Alpine’s MediaXpander technology for improved playback of compressed media.
- An input for a rear view camera system (camera system sold separately).
- The unit has a shallow 3-inch chassis for greater installation flexibility into vehicles.
The iLX-007 is compatible with the Alpine TuneIt App (Version 2.0), for sound settings including time correction, parametric EQ, crossover points, preset EQ modes and more.
