Alpine’s First 9-Inch Apple CarPlay System for Jeep Wrangler – i109-WRA
Last year Alpine released the first 9-inch aftermarket receiver dedicated to Apple CarPlay.
Sadly it is only compatible for the Jeep Wrangler model of vehicles, however a skilled installer maybe able to fit the receiver in other vehicles, as long as it is big enough to take the huge 9-inch display.
Fit for models 2011 and later, the i109-WRA breathes new life into your Jeep Wrangler. Custom designed hard keys around the display help reduce distraction as well as give easy access to Siri. Unfortunately the display is the standard 800×480 resolution, so at 9-inches, you’ll get a slightly more pixelated display than smaller variants that carry the same resolution.
Additional features of the i109-WRA include:
- AM/FM Tuner
- Three 2V Pre-Outs
- One Aux AV Input
- 24-Bit DAC
- MediaXpander technology, for improved playback of compressed media
- Rear View Camera Ready
- Retains your factory steering wheel control
The i109-WRA is currently on offer for $1799.95, down form $2500 for a limited time and can be bought along with a rear-view camera at participating Alpine retailers in the U.S.
