Extreme Audio in Mechanicsville and Midlothian have the new Alpine iLX-F259 digital media receiver in stock. This second-generation “hovering” display radio retains the highly sought-after 9-inch WVGA screen and adjustable mounting system. If you have always wanted a touchscreen radio in your car or truck but don’t have room for a double-DIN solution, the Halo 9 family is a perfect choice.
Smartphone Connectivity Features
The Alpine iLX-F259 maintains the same Apple iPhone and Android smartphone convenience and communication features as the flagship iLX-F309 unit. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay make it safe and convenient to send text messages, make phone calls and choose songs stored on your smartphone. You also have direct access to such media streaming services as Tidal, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Google Play Music, Amazon Music and SiriusXM radio, to name a few. Audiobooks and Apple’s native podcast player are also available.
Both voice-controlled systems will provide turn-by-turn navigation directions to any address you choose. You can even ask for directions to a company or landmark and the systems will query your request on the internet and get you on your way safely and efficiently.
Audio Source and Connectivity Options
In addition to the music sources listed above, the iLX-F259 includes an AM/FM receiver, Bluetooth audio streaming and support for FLAC, WAV, AAC, WMA and MP3 files stored on a USB memory stick.
The iLX-F259 features a dedicated backup camera input and is compatible with the optional KCX-C2600B multi-camera switcher that allows us to add a forward-facing camera.
Of course, the F259 is replete with six-channel, 4-volt preamp outputs to make upgrading your sound system with external amplifiers easy. Integrated electronic crossovers, a five-band equalizer and six channels of signal delay allow our installers to optimize your sound system for amazing realism.
