The 2nd generation of the Halo 9 from Alpine.
A 9-inch touch screen tablet that will install in a single DIN stereo location.
CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth streaming, hands-free calling, multi-video inputs including reverse camera and more.
The ILX-F259’s 9” screen is attached to an adjustable mount connected to a 1-DIN chassis. The screen hovers over or in front of the dash while its rear housing tapers off cleanly at the edges for a thin and modern silhouette. Various mounting positions allow for the screen to be positioned to avoid features on the dash such as air vents and buttons around the radio. Once the desired screen position is determined, the screen and mount get fixed to the chassis for a sturdy fit and finish.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR SCREEN
The iLX-F259 has a customizable user interface so you can design your screens the way you like. Create up to three customized home screens by choosing from 22 widgets – including Clock, USB images, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, “Now Playing,” Sources, Camera, and Bluetooth functions – that can be easily dragged and dropped onto the page. Personalize the screen’s wallpaper by using one of your own photos or choose from several pre-loaded patterns.
The iLX-F259 “Works with Apple CarPlay” and lets iPhone users make and receive calls, access text messages, play music, and get directions in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay is accessed through the capacitive touch screen or the mic button to activate Siri voice control and is compatible with iPhone 5 and later (iPhone must be connected via Apple lightning cable).
The iLX-F259 includes Android Auto and works with the Google Assistant (requires both a USB cable and Bluetooth connection; requires an Android™ phone running 5.0 [Lollipop] or higher and the Android Auto app). To access the Google Assistant on Android Auto, say "OK Google" or select the mic button. Google Assistant in Android Auto allows users to play their favourite music, get driving directions to their destination, interact with smart home devices and reply to text messages – hands-free.
