If you're like us, and use your smartphone for your calendar, contacts, music, entertainment and more, this is the perfect radio to integrate all of the best functionality of your iOS and/or Android devices into your car in a way that works, but isn't distracting. Introducing the iLX-207. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto both baked into one unit, almost every smartphone of the last few generations should be able to plug right in and go. Use Google Maps or Apple Maps to get you to your destination, ask Siri or Google Assistant where to find gas or some delicious barbecue for lunch, and more. With real-time traffic updates brought to you by your phone you will know which roads to avoid on the way home from work, or where construction just started.
The iLX-207 is also compatible with a large array of Alpine's accessories to allow your radio to do even more. With the addition of Alpine's KAC-001 External Accessory Control Module (sold separately) you are able to use the touchscreen to turn light bars on or off, control a winch, or anything you would like to add to your vehicle. This radio is SiriusXM ready, just add the SXV300 satellite tuner to listen to your favorite stations from coast to coast without worrying about losing signal like on traditional FM/AM stations.
