A few weeks ago, Pioneer was the first audio manufacturer to release a aftermarket, CarPlay compatible, in-dash car stereo system. On Monday, Alpine announced that its first CarPlay compatible in-dash system is now available.

Alpine's iLX-007 is an $800 accessory featuring a sever-inch screen with capacitive touch. The stereo includes all of the CarPlay features including; Siri, answer/decline phone calls, Apple Maps, music, and more.

The interesting thing about Apline's latest accessory is that a CD/DVD or memory card slot are nowhere to be found. All entertainment on the iLX-007 will have to be played via an iOS device.

More features via Alpine:
  • Audio/video receiver with 7-inch capacitive touch screen
  • For use with Apple CarPlay to provide a seamless iPhone experience in-vehicle
  • 7-inch WVGA touch screen
  • Voice-activated controls through Siri
  • Three 2V preouts included
  • One aux input
  • Alpine’s MediaXpander™ technology for improved playback of compressed media
  • Input for a rear view camera system
  • Audio, driving directions and phone calls are played through the vehicle’s speakers
  • Uses Lightning connector
  • Compatible with iPhone 5 or later including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the latest version of iOs
  • Compatible with the Alpine TuneIt® App (version 2.0) for customized sound tuning
The Alpine iLX-007 is now available and shipping from select retailers. CarPlay supports iPhone 5 and newer running iOS 7.1 or later.
