Alpine ILX-W650 Owner’s Manual
Dedicated to digital sources and smartphones, the Alpine ILX-W650 does not have a mechanical reader. Instead, it has a USB port compatible with most audio and video formats. But its interest is especially Smartphone connectivity, with CarPlay and Android Auto. You can thus enjoy your Smartphone in the car, in complete safety. Of course, we have Bluetooth and voice control. Originally created for the US market, the FM tuner in this model does not have RDS. This is not very annoying, however, since CarPlay or Android Auto allows you to use Internet radios or Spotify. For navigation, this handset uses the smartphone’s GPS application. 7-inch touch screen, small DSP, line outputs, camera inputs, amplification, steering wheel controls, the receiver has the essential functions. Its strong point is that it can easily increase its power with the Alpine KTA-450 amplifier.
For more powerful, more dynamic listening, you can add the Alpine KTA-450 amplifier along with Alpine ILX-W650. The amplifier can be attached to the back of the multimedia handset. Thus, if the 2 DIN slot is deep enough, we integrate the car radio and amplification in a single assembly: a very clever concept to have a really powerful car radio. If space is lacking, the amplifier can be connected with a longer cable and concealed elsewhere in the dashboard. The high-speed charging function for smartphones ensures that your phone’s battery is quickly charged, while Bluetooth audio streaming allows all occupants of the car to contribute their phone and music to the party on the road.

The unit has a very shallow installation depth of only 6cm, which allows installation even in vehicles without DIN size installation docks. Use touch controls anywhere on the Alpine ILX-W650’s 7-inch display to control your music while keeping your eyes on the road. A two-finger swipe motion moving up, down, left, or right controls volume, up or down, and scrolls tracks forward or backward. Pinch-to-zoom movements let you control how your navigation is displayed in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Using your smartphone, launch Apple CarPlay or Android Auto maps to accompany you on your next adventure. Use the “Voice” button on the receiver or your smartphone for detailed instructions. Front and rear vision cameras can also be installed and accessed on the receiver for driving and parking assist functions.
