Alpine have announced their new range of head units for 2013. Three units have been given a January release, two entry level units & a new bluetooth model. These are as follows: CDE 170R/RM/RR, CDE 171R/RM/RR. The suffix’s R/RM & RR indicate the colours of illumination, R= Green, RM= Amber & RR= Red.
The bluetooth model is the CDE 173BT
The “entry level” units have a spec which is far from entry level in my opinion.
USB & Aux in
Works with Nokia
3 EQ Presets
With an RRP of £85, that’s a lot of unit for your money.
The CDE 171 is only slightly different with iPod/iPhone connectivity via the front USB. They have also added an exciting new feature, App Direct Mode which allows you to enjoy the sound of any iPhone app through your car speakers. ( youtube, internet radio, Spotify, etc )
Your iPhone is fully operational when connected to the head unit. I’m looking forward to having a play around with one of these.
The CDE 173 BT has all of the same features plus Media Expander, & dual illumination ( red/green ). Also expect bluetooth streaming as standard.
Design wise, there’s nothing new here with Alpine keeping the same designs as last year’s units.

Pioneer SPH-DA01 Latest Addition to Pioneer range AppRadio
AppRadio is a radical new product that goes beyond what you’ve ever hoped for from a car stereo. It’s the first aftermarket in-vehicle radio designed specifically for the iPhone 4 to bring compatible entertainment, navigation and information apps right into the dash of the car. When connected to the iPhone 4, the AppRadio comes to life. Featuring the world’s first automotive aftermarket capacitive touchscreen, the AppRadio interface requires less touch pressure and familiar touch gestures when compared to traditional in-dash touchscreens, just like what you’re familiar with on your iPhone 4. In addition to the familiar and intuitive interface, the AppRadio encourages safe driving by providing access to certain iPhone 4 features and apps formatted specifically for in-vehicle use.
