Cutting-Edge Driveless Mobile Media Station

App Link Station - ICS-X7

The ICS-X7 is one of the world’s first mobile media products to take advantage of the MirrorLink™ standard, making it extremely convenient to use a MirrorLink™ enabled smartphone and its applications in your car. 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.

Those great features make it the world’s most advanced mobile information and entertainment centre, with a brilliant interface optimised for smartphones and apps. From sound quality and media support to navigation, everything is first-rate.
 

Since more and more users rely on their smartphone as the main entertainment device, the ICS-X7 does not feature a drive anymore. Navigation is part of the features which will be enabled when using a MirrorLink™ compatible phone, logically the connector for the standard navigation became obsolete.

For the first time, Alpine offers a unit with support for Aha™ by HARMAN. Aha combines all things you need while driving in one smartphone app. It offers entertainment; location based information and even keeps you connected with your Facebook and Twitter feeds.
As Aha is made to create the least driver distraction, therefore messages will be read out by a text-to-speech engine.
The location based services are bundled in dedicated channels. Those are at present: Hotels, Hungry, and Weather. Once a channel is selected, information related to the present location is read out by a clear, easy to understand text-to-speech voice.
On the entertainment side, there is a vast array of choices. Aha provides a choice of own music channels of different genres, news channels and podcasts of all kinds. Moreover SHOUTcast Radio is supported, offering thousands of free Internet radio stations from DJs and broadcasters around the world.
If the user prefers a good book over music, audio books are also available. With the audio books and the Aha channels, the user has options like pause, resume, rewind 30 seconds and skip 15 seconds.
Currently Aha is supported on iPhones. The app is available from the App Store free of charge. Whichever links and stations are created on the iPhone, the same choice will be immediately present on the screen of the ICS-X7.

To keep you entertained in the future, the ICS-X7 will stay up to date with support for new phones and apps from the Alpine website.
