New Alpine Hi-Res Jeep Receivers

Alpine Electronics of America will ship in February two new Hi-Res 9-inch weather resistant Jeep receivers for the Wrangler and the Gladiator.

The radios offer many of the same Hi-Res Audio and Hi-Resolution touchscreens as the floating screen Halo radios announced earlier this week including a WXGA 1280×720 pixel, anti glare display.

They also come with wireless CarPlay and Android Auto. Models include the i509-WRA-JL for the 2018-Up Jeep Wrangler and 2020-Up Jeep Gladiator, and the i509-WRA-JK for the 2011-2018 Jeep Wrangler.

Jeep-specific features include plug and play installation, weather resistant construction and Jeep-specific tuning. When used with an iDatalink Maestro to retain factory features they integrate with the Jeep diagnostic port so select vehicle information like tire pressure, battery voltage, door status, engine codes, and user-customizable gauges can be monitored on the display.

Like the new Halo radios, they are the industry’s first to support SiriusXM 360L, which combines satellite radio and streaming content for more listening choices.

Front and rear cameras can be added to the i509-WRA-JK.  The i509-WRA-JL retains the factory rear-view camera for the new 2018-Up Jeep Wrangler and 2020-Up Jeep Gladiator.

The i509-WRA-JL and i509-WRA-JK will ship in February at a MAP of $2199.95 and $1999.95 respectively.
