If you are looking for a multimedia receiver with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a large touchscreen, drop into California Car Sounds and Tint near San Jose and ask about the new Alpine iLX-F259. As the second source unit in the Halo 9 series, the F259 also features a massive 9-inch touch screen that hovers in front of your dash. Even if you only have room for a single-DIN radio or want to add smartphone integration to an older vehicle where the radio can’t be replaced, the Halo 9 series radios are the perfect solution.
Alpine iLX-F259 Features
Beyond the incredible display, the F259 offers all the features you’d want to keep you entertained and in touch with family and friends while you drive. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to use voice commands to send text messages, make phone calls or choose the entertainment source you want. Dedicated apps from streaming services like Google Play Music, Apple Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora and Tidal are also supported. You can even get turn-by-turn navigation directions using Google Maps or Waze with either system.
A built-in high-quality AM/FM receiver takes care of terrestrial radio, and you have the option of adding the SXV300v1 SiriusXM satellite radio tuner for non-stop entertainment anywhere you drive. A USB port lets you charge your smartphone or play MP3, WMA, AAC or FLAC audio files from a USB memory stick. You can even watch MPEG or AVI video files with your friends while parked at the beach.
Vehicle Integration Options
The iLX-F259 includes a dedicated backup camera input. We can mount an optional camera on the rear of your vehicle to help you park or maneuver safely. The optional KCX-C2600B adapter module will let us add a second camera to the front of the vehicle. A forward-facing camera is a great safety solution for large trucks and SUVs.
The built-in, four-channel amplifier provides up to 18 watts of power per channel, but we can use the front, rear and subwoofer 4-volt RCA preamp outputs to add amplifiers to dramatically enhance your listening experience.
