Alpine readies Apple-influenced car head unit

updated 10:35 am EST, Thu February 15, 2007

Alpine IDA-X001

Alpine has introduced the iDA-X001, a new in-car headend receiver custom-designed with an influence by Apple. While not unique in its ability to control the music of a fifth-generation iPod while the device is attached through a USB cable, the X001 incorporates a 2.2-inch LCD which replicates the music player's menus and displays complex track information -- including album art, Alpine noted. The port also accepts almost any USB storage device and will play their MP3 and WMA songs.

Wireless support is also broad. Bluetooth is built-in for hands-free calling; the head unit further supports satellite radio through Sirius and XM receivers and is ready for HD Radio through AM and FM. Alpine plans to ship the deck in April for a price of $450. [via CrunchGear]
