JBL Announces its Legend CP100 Apple CarPlay Receiver


JBL Legend CP100 CarPlay

More news from CES 2016, this time it is from new CarPlay kids on the block, Harman/JBL, who has announced their first Apple CarPlay receiver, the JBL Legend CP100.

The American company’s first in-car infotainment system with Apple’s CarPlay platform features a capacitive touchscreen display, measuring at 6.75-inches, an AM/FM turner, one USB socket at the rear, backup camera inputs and the usual standard steering wheel controls.

Similar to the Alpine ILX-700/007, the CP100 also has a dedicated push to talk button, which JBL says will give instant access to Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri. Unlike the Alpine though, the CP100 also packs Bluetooth 3.0, but there is no mention of JBL adding Wireless CarPlay functionality.

Pricing wasn’t available at this point, however a “market leading price point” is promised, so expect a mid-level price point to match the Alpine or Pioneer’s AppRadio 4, at least for JBL to compete in this new in-car battle for your car’s dashboard!

[Update: Thanks to reddit, one poster has spotted a $399.95 price point via the JBL Online Store]

Below is the full spec from their press release, lacking on a few features but better than nothing at all:

  • 6.75” Touch Capacitive Screen
  • AM/FM Tuner with station identification and song name
  • Rear USB input
  • Rear Camera Input (composite)
  • Steering Wheel Interface Ready (ASWC Ready)
  • Bluetooth 3.0 HFP, AVRCP, A2DP, SPP, SSP
  • Works with Apple Car Play
  • Android Auto
  • White Illumination Buttons
  • 2 Pre-Amp Outputs (Full Range F + R)
  • “Push to talk” button Siri, Google Voice,
  • iMX6 Processor
