    Great Head Unit!

    Posted

    This head unit really makes an older car feel brand new in terms of technology. It looks great and the wireless CarPlay is definitely it’s best feature. You simply turn on your car and your phone connects automatically within seconds without worrying about plugging anything in. It feels like an extension of your phone because you can swipe to scroll through menus just like your phone. The touch response is great and it looks really nice installed in my truck, almost as if it came from the factory. Also if you purchase the idatalink maestro module, you can get extra features like on screen gauges, tire pressure and battery voltage data, etc... directly on the screen itself. You can also have the back up camera show on the screen all the time (even when your going 70 mph on the freeway), which is super useful when trying to connect a trailer. Got it installed by the bestbuy geek squad and they did a great job. Overall probably one of the best head units on the market.

    So far, so good!

    Have had this wireless CarPlay deck installed for a little over a month now and so far so good. Installation is not easy in most modern cars, I definitely recommend Geek Squad installation. Wireless CarPlay is flawless in my experience and easy to setup. This deck is for die hard Apple folks, those who are "All In" w/ Apple. (No Waze, limited CarPlay support by some Apps but very few.) But really the limitations are no fault of the head-unit itself and more on Apple and their restrictions which are tying the hands of developers. The "Hey Siri" activation of Siri is supported if your phone supports it but takes longer to get a response from the head-unit than if you trigger Siri from your steering wheel or the deck itself. Once all is said and done; If you have Apple Music or Spotify and are cool with using Apple Maps for all your navigation this unit is a great seamless experience. Blue Shirt approved.

    Finally Wireless Car Play

    After holding out for years Alpine finallly provides a fully wireless solution. I replaced the factory unit in my 2005 G35 with this and it works and sounds great. The factory Bose system created some issues but was resolve. The Bose speakers actually sound better than before. Had to install an Alpine power pack to resolve a subwoofer distortion issue. Sync with iPhone SE is seemless. The only issue was adding an app. I added the CBS radio news app but it disappeared from the screen never to return. The options to customize sound are great. Siri actually works better using this unit than just the phone. Most of all no wires unless I want to charge my phone.

    Wireless CarPlay is a Win

    Wireless CarPlay is the best and only reason I'd suggest for this stereo. I had the previous iLX-007 model, and this is essentially the same stereo just with the wireless capabilities added. There's also iDatalink Maestro compatibility (which does not work with my car) and a GPS antenna, but otherwise it's the same. The startup of the iLX-107 is slower than the the iLX-007, but nothing catastrophic. Usually about 10-15 seconds. I've had no problems connecting, however, and it stays connected. Only had one disconnect so far. It's been doing this strange thing where it changes the input from CarPlay to Aux to Radio seemingly at random, but I'm having the radio replaced and we'll see if that solves the problem. It's all mostly positive, and I would recommend it for iPhone users.

    Only CarPlay Stereo you should consider

    First of all, it looks amazing. Wireless CarPlay is the only reason I decided to even get CarPlay in my car. As soon as I turn on my car, my car instantly connects to my phone. I don’t have to plug it in or do anything extra. The sound quality is phenomenal, and with geek squad installation everything is working great! You might however want to consider getting a micro bypass and installing it yourself (Best Buy doesn’t install bypass) because the alpine head unit didn’t recognize when I was parked.

    Very pleased...My father had an older car that was not smart phone compatible. He does a lot of driving for work and needs to have hands-free capability. This integrated well with his iPhone he does not have to plug the iPhone in for it to use navigation etc. Apple CarPlay can be via Bluetooth. He has enjoyed it well and has a great sound clarity for him and for the person on the other end of the line.

    Alpine is the best aftermarket device you can buy. .... so smooth no dummy warnings when booting up. SirusXm app. I had a kenwood/Apple CarPlay returned it ... 2018 technology in a ten year old MERC Added kickers amp & subwoofers. Dual 12”. Wow. I get so many compliments. Better then I could ever have imagined.

    Game Changer

    Wow!!!! What a game changer!!! Easy install, easy setup, user friendly. I am using a iPhone X and it syncs to the unit effortlessly. It pretty much functions the same as my iPhone. I’d recommend buying the 3M VHB 5952 double sided tape though for the GPS antenna. The double sided tape it comes with will not withstand the inside temperatures of a car parked outside on a hot summer day.

    I have been an Alpine fan for over 20 years. I was disappointed in this previous model only to be told of the new wireless option with this 107. I am truly impressed with this system. Great job Alpine.

    I was worried this deck would have a slight lag considering it’s completely wireless. Fortunately, it’s just as fast as previous models and even more responsive!
