Product information

Plays Music From USB Memory Sticks

You can also connect any USB memory stick containing music data. The head unit automatically picks out just your music files from the data on the stick, and provides convenient file and folder search functions so you can find your songs quickly and easily.

Bluetooth Phone Ready

Bring your Bluetooth phone into the car, too. All our head units are Bluetooth ready; just connect the KCE-300BT Bluetooth Interface and get full operation of your Bluetooth-compatible mobile phone – without having to take your hands off the wheel.

Built-in USB

You can connect your USB memory stick on the back of the unit, or store it safely away from damage or theft in the glove compartment (requires KCE-220UB USB Extension Cable). iDA-X100 * Latest generation iPods (iPod nano 3rd generation, iPod classic and iPod touch) are only partially supported as of December 2007. Please ask your Alpine dealer for more information on functionality and latest firmware status.
