Key Features

Advanced App Link Station Car Stereo Mirror Link - Alpine ICS-X7

Made for iPod Works for iPhone MP3 AM / FM Radio Bluetooth handsfree USB Aux input Stalk Control 3 Preout Multi Colour display Android Compatible

The ICS-X7 is one of the world’s first mobile media products to take advantage of the MirrorLink™ standard, making it extremely convenient to use a MirrorLink™ enabled smartphone and its applications in your car. If you own a smartphone that is MirrorLink™ enabled, visit your phone manufacturer’s app store to download the needed software (additional charges may apply) and install it on your phone.

Those great features make it the world’s most advanced mobile information and entertainment centre, with a brilliant interface optimised for smartphones and apps. From sound quality and media support to navigation, everything is first-rate.

Since more and more users rely on their smartphone as the main entertainment device, the ICS-X7 does not feature a drive anymore. Navigation is part of the features which will be enabled when using a MirrorLink™ compatible phone, logically the connector for the standard navigation became obsolete.

For the first time, Alpine offers a unit with support for Aha™ by HARMAN. Aha combines all things you need while driving in one smartphone app. It offers entertainment; location based information and even keeps you connected with your Facebook and Twitter feeds.
As Aha is made to create the least driver distraction, therefore messages will be read out by a text-to-speech engine.
The location based services are bundled in dedicated channels. Those are at present: Hotels, Hungry, and Weather. Once a channel is selected, information related to the present location is read out by a clear, easy to understand text-to-speech voice.
On the entertainment side, there is a vast array of choices. Aha provides a choice of own music channels of different genres, news channels and podcasts of all kinds. Moreover SHOUTcast Radio is supported, offering thousands of free Internet radio stations from DJs and broadcasters around the world.
If the user prefers a good book over music, audio books are also available. With the audio books and the Aha channels, the user has options like pause, resume, rewind 30 seconds and skip 15 seconds.

Currently Aha is supported on iPhones. The app is available from the App Store free of charge. Whichever links and stations are created on the iPhone, the same choice will be immediately present on the screen of the ICS-X7.

  • Question: 31 May 2016
    Car: Jaguar X - Type - 2002 >

    is this stereo the only one that will fit the x type as need a thin depth due to heating pipes behind stereo or is there more with a thin depth

    Hi There,

    To fit the ICS-X7, into your JAGUAR X-TYPE, you will need a facia kit, wiring harness and aerial adaptor,
    I will list the part(s) for you, have looked into somethimg smaller but all other stereos are quite big at the back of the units, as this one you have chosen is compact in design.

    If you need this fitting in your vehicle or need further advise you can contact your local Car Audio Centre store directly for a full quotation and they will be happy to help you

  • Question: 09 May 2016
    Car: Volvo V50 - 2004>

    Is this product compatible with a 2009 Volvo V50? The standard radio unit also displays the heater controls, etc. Would I lose these functions? If not, are there any other units that are compatible?


    thanks for your question, having checked your model & year, there is no fascia adaptation available without actually physically cutting out your dash. however you would lose the heating display when changing to an after market unit.

    Found Useful? Yes
