Alpine Electronics cut the price in half for new basic Restyle mechless radios due this year.
Responding to dealer requests, it showed at CES two mechless Restyle radios that may work with an optional outboard DVD/CD drive at suggested retail prices around $2,000.
A new universal Restyle is an 8-inch radio with CarPlay and Android Auto. The model X208U is mechless with navigation at $2,000 suggested retail price. It has SiriusXM capability, HD Radio, HDMI output, capacitive touch screen, Pandora and FLAC file playback.
There’s also a new mechless Jeep Restyle AV/navigation radio for $2,200 suggested retail price, the i209-WRA 9-inch deck, for the 2011-Up Jeep Wrangler. It’s water resistant for use with the Jeep top down as shown here–https://instagram.com/p/BO7XaStj9v1/
Both work with an optional DVE-5200 DVD/CD drive at $380 suggested retail price.
These join a new universal Alpine iLX-107, the first aftermarket wireless CarPlay radio to ship in February.
