Alpine iDA-X305S Pandora Internet Radio Ready Digital Media Receiver

Besides adding an 'S' to the end of its model name, the new iDA-X305S is a real evolution of the previous model.

The iDA-X305S is able to control the Pandora app THIS APP NOW ONLY WORKS IN AMERICA DUE TO LICENCING ISSUES. on a connected iPhone 3G or 3GS, streaming your user-created radio stations over a 3G data connection and out of your vehicle's speakers. Users should be able to log in and access all of the Pandora app's functions using the X305S' 2.2-inch color display and double-action rotary encoder knob, including viewing album artwork and tracking metadata, changing stations, skipping tracks, giving a song the thumbs up and down, and bookmarking songs for later access.

iPhone users who are also Pandora users will be able to get a taste of Internet radio during their commutes when the Alpine iDA-X305S is released on 24th March 2010. Users can simply connect their iPhone via USB socket and the iDA-X305S plays Pandora stations from the app - simple as that.

Alpine also designed the iDA-X305S to make it easy to use an iPod in your car. The big jog dial in the middle works just like an iPod's click wheel. Turn it a little to access Search mode, then scroll line-by-line. Turn and hold the knob to move to Alphabet Search mode - now you can scroll through the alphabet to blaze through your lists of artists, albums, or songs.

Alpine 305S
Andy Harrison on 09/04/2013 5 star rating

Excellent Good service / delivery from car audio centre - just as promised Great bit of kit - does what it said it would - properly controls my iPod. I've not tested it with the newer iPods (e.g. touch) or the iPhone but all good so far.
