Alpine has announced a new version of its popular Halo audio/video receiver that features an 11-inch touchscreen display and Apple CarPlay support.

The new iLX-F411 Alpine Halo Mech-Less (no CD/DVD) Audio/Video Receiver features the same “hovering” screen platform as its predecessors while boasting a larger, 11-inch touchscreen – 49 percent more surface area than the 9-inch.

“The impact that the Alpine Halo9 has had in the industry cannot be understated,” said Mike Anderson, Vice President and General Manager, Brand Business Unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “The introduction of the new 11-inch display solidifies Alpine as an industry leader with the biggest display on the market.”

The iLX-F411 has the same features as its predecessor, the iLX-F259, including a customizable user interface, with three home screens and 22 available widgets that can be customized through swipe and drag-and-drop motions. Users can personalize the background using their own photos or several pre-loaded patterns.

Features and System Expansion
The large, 11-inch screen has a WVGA display, Capacitive Touch, and Swipe Graphical User Interface (GUI) that’s optimized for in-vehicle smartphone use so drivers can access Apple CarPlay or Android Auto with the Google Assistant for media or navigation while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. It features built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming and is SiriusXM-Ready (requires a SiriusXM tuner and subscription, sold separately).

External sources can be connected via the USB port, AUX input, or HDMI input. One universal rear camera input or additional cameras can be added when used with the KCX-C2600B Universal Front and Rear Camera Selector (cameras and selector sold separately). Drivers can retain select factory features like vehicle information and parking assist display on compatible vehicles with the iDatalink Maestro module (sold separately, requires fall 2020 software update).

Installation Fitment
The iLX-F411 follows the same flexible installation fitment as its 9-inch predecessor with an adjustable mount and four screen angle adjustments, five screen height adjustments, and two screen depth adjustments for optimized viewing.

The 1-DIN chassis and adjustable installation options make it easy to add the iLX-F411 to a variety of applications without blocking factory buttons or features on the dash and avoiding the need for custom installation.

The iLX-F411 will ship in June for a suggested retail price of $1,200.
