Alpine introduces car radio with 11 inch screen

Alpine kicked off 2020 by showing at CES the largest radio screen from a top tier supplier.

The company announced an 11-inch floating screen will be offered in a new Halo iLX-F411 mechless (CD-less) radio, the third model in its Halo series.

The new screen provides 49 percent more surface area than Alpine’s earlier 9-inch models.  The extra room allows for safer map reading and easy control of music, text messages and phone calls through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, said Alpine.

“The impact that the Alpine Halo9 has had in the industry cannot be understated,” said Mike Anderson, Alpine Vice President and General Manager, Brand Business Unit. “The introduction of the new 11-inch display solidifies Alpine as an industry leader with the biggest display on the market.”

The iLX-F411 has the same features as its predecessor, the iLX-F259, including a customizable user interface, with three home screens and 22 available widgets that can be customized through swipe and drag-and-drop motions. Users can personalize the backgrounds using their own photos or several pre-loaded patterns.

The single DIN deck includes CarPlay and Android Auto with Google Assistant as well as SiriusXM capability and HD Radio. It also has an HDMI input and Bluetooth.

The 11-inch screen has a WVGA display with capacitive touch, and swipe control. Like previous Halo models, it offers four screen angle adjustments, five screen height adjustments and two screen depth adjustments for optimized viewing.

Users can add a rear camera input or additional cameras with an optional KCX-C250MC Multi-Camera Selector. Drivers can retain select factory features like vehicle information and parking assist display on compatible vehicles with an optional iDatalink Maestro module.

The iLX-F411 will ship in June at $1,200 suggested price.
