Freestyle solution for custom installs
As our Alpine Style infotainment systems get more popular and the demand for more vehicle solutions increases, we also want to offer a Freestyle solution that can be custom installed in any vehicle. This is especially interesting for vehicles that are incompatible with 1DIN or 2DIN solutions, and for which there are no car specific solutions available. The new Freestyle systems are available in 7” and 9” monitor configurations and feature iGo primo NextGen navigation, as well as built-in DAB+ and other important media options.
All parts included
Both Freestyle products include a high-resolution touch-screen, fully customizable key panels, a media receiver, GPS / Glonass antenna, wiring kit, USB cable and a Golf 6 frame. This gives the installer all parts needed for a good custom installation.
The 2 key panels can be installed horizontally or vertically, depending on the installation position. The key positions can also be assigned individually due to the interchangeable buttons. This has the advantage that key layout can be adjusted to personal preferences, as well as for left-hand or right-hand steering wheel configuration. We recommend for example, that the volume buttons are always installed on the same side than the steering wheel to be easily reachable.
The key caps can be easily removed to change their position. The can also be rotated to allow vertical or horizontal installation.
You can easily adjust the illumination colour of the control buttons to 6 different colours (white, red, yellow, amber, blue and green) to match the Freestyle system to your dashboard illumination. You can also adjust the brightness intensity in 2 levels. You can also adjust the display background accordingly.
1 DIN navigation / media receiver
The media receiver unit is very compact and has exact 1DIN measurements. This makes it quite easy to find a suitable space behind the dashboard or the centre console to install the unit.

Android Auto automatically brings you useful information, and organizes it into simple cards that appear just when they're needed. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can access the navigation antenna of the X702D-F for improved accuracy when using the navi apps.
We redesigned the user interface to allow fast switching of applications with a single swipe of a finger.

Another swipe will show you the navigation map in full screen. This operation methodology works in all four directions to quickly and easily reach the most often used functions.

You can also connect your iPod touch or iPhone via HDMI to enjoy your video content on the high-resolution 9-inch display. Alpine even offers an all-new DVB-T2 tuner (TUE-T220DV) if you like to watch TV programs while you are waiting in traffic jams. For driving safety, the video playback feature is only available if the vehicle is not in motion.
DAB/DAB+ Digital Radio
The built-in DAB/DAB+ tuner uses the most advanced digital technology to deliver radio reception with outstanding, noise-free sound quality. DAB also offers many other advantages over traditional FM radio: choose from a much wider range of radio stations and after the initial station scan easily select your desired channels from an alphabetic or genre list of available stations. Please note that a DAB antenna needs to be purchased separately.

If you do not want to use Apple CarPlay or you own an iPhone 4 / 4S for example, you can still connect it and use the Alpine audio player to enjoy all your music in your car and charge your phone.
Built-in Bluetooth® Technology
The built-in Bluetooth® module allows wireless connection of a mobile phone for hands-free communication, while frequent software updates ensure full compatibility with the latest phones.
