For the Safe Use of Smartphones in the Car
MirrorLink™ is a standard for connecting smartphone devices to vehicle-based infotainment systems. It is a cross-industry solution supported by leading automotive manufacturers, system suppliers, consumer electronics manufacturers and handset manufacturers as part of the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC). MirrorLink™ offers seamless and convenient use of smartphone-based applications such as navigation, music playback and other entertainment and communication apps.
If you own a smartphone that is MirrorLink™ enabled, visit your phone manufacturer’s app store to download the needed software (additional charges may apply) and install it on your phone. The head unit is just a terminal, as all processing is done in the phone. The phone charges while driving. The driver can get live traffic updates while navigating.
Large Control Buttons
Not only is viewing enhanced, but operating various functions is also more convenient with large buttons. When driving, you’ll quickly learn that it’s more comfortable and safer to use the 7” display with easy-to-push buttons.
Connection for Alpine Climate Control and Parking Sensor Interfaces
Many original factory head units have climate control and parking displays, which will be lost if the unit is removed. With the INE-W987D, this is not a problem, as it supports Alpine interfaces that provide attractive graphic displays of climate control and parking information. This ensures full integration of the Alpine system with the car for greater driving safety and convenience.
Parking sensor displays distances to the front and rear, making it easier and safer to maneuvre into and out of parking spaces.
Camera display gives you a clear view as you park. Front and rear distances are also shown. The system automatically mutes on reverse to hear the sensor sound.
Full climate and heater contour display including air vent settings and seat heater display makes it easy to achieve desired settings.
