Alpine confirms plans to launch aftermarket CarPlay-ready receivers

updated 05:16 pm EDT, Tue April 15, 2014

Details remain scarce

Following a Nikkei report to the effect earlier this week, Alpine has officially confirmed plans to ship aftermarket receivers compatible with Apple's CarPlay. The units will roll out in the US and Europe towards the end of 2014, but apart from a concept image, no other details are available. The Nikkei account suggested prices would fall between $500 and $700.

Alpine's news more directly follows a reveal of CarPlay gear by Pioneer and confirmation by accessory maker Scosche that it will also make CarPlay-compatible devices. Together, the announcements suggest that CarPlay could become more widespread than was first implied. When the technology was announced at the Geneva Motor Show, there was no mention of aftermarket upgrades, suggesting that only new cars built for the standard would support it.
