CarPlay Installs: Alpine iLX-107 in a 2015 Nissan Sentra SR

Published On August 3, 2017 | Installs

Last week we asked if anyone had installed Alpine’s wireless CarPlay iLX-107 receiver yet, and a member of the community reached out to us and shared their install.

Today’s install is a Alpine iLX-107 with Apple CarPlay in a 2015 Nissan Sentra SR

If you’ve done a recent CarPlay install and would like to be featured here on CarPlay Life. Send your photo links to @CarPlayLife  or via our Facebook page facebook.com/CarPlayLife.

    looks good and it’s a great option to have, but am I the only one who doesn’t get what all the fuss is about with wireless carplay? I think it’s very convenient for short trips, but you need to charge your phone so you plug it in, err… Also how does it detect that you *want* to use carplay just because you’re in the car (e.g. if both of you use the same car, which phone gets carplay’d first, driver or passengers ?)…

      I agree with you, Andy. I never understood the whole deal about the wireless desire. One of the reasons I got the iLX-007 is to use my iPhone in a safe way while it charges. And now that Maps is actually worth using I don’t mess with my iPhone at all while I drive.

        Just wait until the iPhone 8 launches next month with wireless charging. Then it will all make sense!
        Personally, I love the idea of CarPlay working with the phone in my pocket for short journeys, and then just throwing it onto a charge mat in the glovebox for longer trips.
