9-inch WXGA HD Display
The super-large, 9-inch WXGA touch-screen display features a resolution of 1280 x 720p and includes over 2.7 million pixel elements - making icons, menus and visual content extremely crisp and vibrant in your dash. The screen is attached to an adjustable mount connected to the vehicle’s radio dock and leaves a free 1DIN pocket below for storing smaller items such as cigarettes, etc.
Wireless Apple CarPlay
The iLX-F905T6 “Works with Apple CarPlay” wirelessly and lets iPhone users make and receive calls, access and write text messages, play music, and get direction in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay is accessed through the capacitive touchscreen or the mic button to activate Siri voice control. Due to the WiFi connection, you can keep your iPhone in your pocket and do not need to plug it in all the time (except for charging).
A rear view camera is a great way to make reversing safer. The camera image automatically comes on when you shift into reverse and distance guides that can be adjusted to match your car size will appear on the screen to help you safely park your car. Alpine offers a wide variety of front and rear facing cameras, including multi-view cameras with selectable viewing angles. You can even view the camera screen and parking sensor screen simultaneously, if your car supports it.
Wide Entertainment & Online Navigation Options
The all new DAB+/ radio tuner allows DAB – FM switching and lets you enjoy seamless radio reception without interruptions.

You can of course use Android Auto with any compatible smartphone running Android (wired connection).
World’s First Head Unit With Built-in Class-D Amplifier
The iLX-F905T6 is the world’s first aftermarket Head Unit featuring a built-in 4x 50 Watts Class-D amplifier – allowing excellent, high-end sound reproduction with highly reduced noise or phase shift. The key benefit of Class-D amplification technology is its high efficiency of about 90%, compared to 50 - 70% of Class AB amplifiers. New high-speed fans with internal heat sinks keep your Alpine Halo9 cool - and the music playing.

Freely Adjustable Display Angle
You can adjust the iLX-F905T6’s display angle from +45 degrees to -20 degrees to match a wide range of dashboard angle. You can freely adjust the display angle at any time, to achieve best visibility and to avoid sunlight glare.
Adjustable Display Height and Distance
The display height can be adjusted +/- 3cm from the center position. This allows fully standing or hanging display configurations as well as everything in between. You can also adjust the distance of the display to your dash in a 20mm range. After the display height and distance to the dash are selected, everything gets locked into place to be very solid.
Installation Kit for Volkswagen T6 included
