iLX-700, iPhone and Apple CarPlay

iLX-700, iPhone and Apple CarPlay — a brilliant combination.

Apple CarPlay offers a safe and intuitive way to use your iPhone in your car. Simply connect your iPhone to the iLX-700 through the lightning connector and the Apple CarPlay apps appear on your Alpine screen.
Use the the 7” capacitive touch screen or Siri to get driving directions, make calls, browse though your music library and dictate SMS messages - or have Siri even read new incoming SMS messages to you.
Additionally there are more Apple CarPlay approved apps such as Podcasts, Spotify, internet radio and others - and the list keeps growing. Apple CarPlay allows you to use all these apps while keeping your eyes on the road.


Apple CarPlay seamlessly integrates with your iPhone for greater operating ease and functionality. Use Siri to make calls, return missed calls and listen to voice mails, keeping your eyes on the road.
You get your Contacts, Favorites and Recents lists, a Keypad display and an easy-to-use Call Screen.


Wherever you go, let Apple CarPlay show you the way. The utter simplicity of Apple Maps will guide you through turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3-D views, traffic conditions and estimated travel time – all from your dashboard. And when you start to input an address, Apple CarPlay will use various information to quickly predict the destination.

Additional Apple CarPlay apps

Additional Apple CarPlay approved apps such as Spotify, Podcasts, Rdio and others can be downloaded from iTunes to your iPhone and will then appear on the Apple CarPlay menu.
For more information and updates on third party apps supported by Apple CarPlay, please visit the Apple CarPlay website.


Apple CarPlay Apps

When connecting your iPhone there are four pre-installed Apple CarPlay apps: Music, Phone, Maps and Messages.
They basically work just the same as on your iPhone, however they have been optimised to be used in the vehicle while driving. Simply tell Siri what music you want to listen to,  dictate SMS messages, ask for driving directions or take and place calls.
Below we explain the these key apps in more detail. When you stop your car and engage the parking break you get additional option such as a keyboard to manually input navigation destinations.


You can control all the music search options of your iPhone directly from the iLX-700. Search playlists, artists, albums, songs, and more by scrolling or via alphabetic search. You can also activate Siri to play music by giving voice commands. The USB connection ensures superfast access and high-quality sound.


Enjoy a better way of text messaging with friends and family with Apple CarPlay when you’re on the road. Through your voice commands, Siri can do all the heavy lifting by sending, reading and replying to your text messages so that you never have to glance at your phone while behind the wheel.


Apple CarPlay uses Siri voice control specifically for driving scenarios. Tell Siri what you’d like to listen to and Siri will be on it. Want a text message read or sent? Siri has that handled. Have calls to take and return on the road? Siri is the perfect co-pilot for that. Siri can seamlessly be activated from the dedicated hard button on the iLX-700 and on your steering wheel controls (if applicable).
