Product Information

High Resolution Touch Screen

The 8-inch (20 cm) high-resolution display allows full operation of the system via touch-screen technology and features the latest video technology for outstanding picture clarity, contrast and resolution. This allows navigation maps to be displayed in stunning detail, while movies or video clips become a real cinematic experience. The user interface is very intuitive and is designed to perfectly integrate into your vehicle. You’ll soon appreciate the ease of use and convenience of direct touch operation.

Big Screen Entertainment

The Alpine system allows you to enjoy movies, music videos or TV shows from many different sources, such as DVDs from the optional optical drive, USB sticks, the latest smartphones with HDMI output or portable video devices (optional cables or adapters are required). You can also connect your iPod or iPhone to enjoy your video content on the high-resolution 8-inch display. For driving safety the video playback feature is only available if the vehicle is not in motion.

All New User Interface

We redesigned the user interface to allow fast switching of applications with a single swipe of a finger. If you for example view and iPod playlist on your screen, all you have to do is swipe your finger from right to left to view the navigation map and iPod screen in a convenient split screen arrangement. Another swipe will show you the navigation map in full screen. This operation methodology works in all four directions to quickly and easily reach the most often used functions. You will especially like this functionality while driving since it eliminates to look for specific buttons.

Connect HDMI Sources

The X801D-U is equipped with an HDMI port. Using an optional HDMI cable you can connect any smartphone or media device with an HDMI output to see the content on the X801D-U screen. You can even use and iPhone 5 or 6 and connect it via the lightning plug to enjoy the iPhone video or photo content on the Alpine screen (requires additional cables and adapters). The X801D-U also includes an HDMI output to connect a rear monitor system with HDMI.

8-inch Screen with 1 DIN chassis

More and more vehicles feature a dashboard space for a 7” or 8” screen, however behind the screen there is no space to fit a full 2DIN product. The Volkswagen Golf 7, Skoda Octavia 3 or the new SMART are vehicles with such dashboard design. Alpine designed the X801D-U to overcome this problem by putting a 1DIN chassis in the back of a 8” screen. With a car specific installation kit you can achieve a perfect installation and operation.

Built-in Bluetooth® Technology

The built-in Bluetooth® module allows wireless connection of a mobile phone for hands-free communication, while frequent software updates ensure full compatibility with the latest phones. A very intuitive user interface makes it very easy to operate and also includes a speed dial function for the most frequently called numbers. Bluetooth® also enables audio streaming from the phone: audio content or even internet radio can be wirelessly transferred to the unit.

DAB Digital Radio

The built-in DAB/DAB+/DMB tuner uses the most advanced digital technology to deliver radio reception in outstanding, noise-free sound quality. DAB+ also offers many other advantages over traditional FM radio: select from a much wider range of radio stations and after an initial station scan you can easily select your desired channels from an alphabetic and genre list of available stations.

Alpine TuneIt App for Tuning and Keeping in Touch

The X801D-U works with Alpine’s cool and convenient Alpine TuneIt App to bring you custom sound tuning features right from your smartphone.
You can upload your sound settings to the Alpine Cloud Server to share them with other Alpine fans, and see their settings. The app also displays Facebook messages, lets you “Like” them and even reads them to you!
Download Alpine TuneIt App with TTS from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

High Quality Sound, Tuned for Your Car and Your Ear

The X801D-U puts the power of advanced sound processing in your car with BASS ENGINE SQ to maximise bass sound and overall tone balance, plus lots of custom tuning functions like Digital Time Correction and Dual HD EQ. Best of all, you can control them easily from your smartphone with the Alpine TuneIt App. 24-Bit DAC and 4-volt PreOuts, too!
