7-inch Screen with 1 DIN chassis
More and more vehicles feature a dashboard space for a 7” or 8” screen, however behind the screen there is no space to fit a full 2DIN product. The Volkswagen Golf 7, Skoda Octavia 3 or the new SMART are vehicles with such dashboard design. Alpine designed the INE-W997D to overcome this problem by putting a 1DIN chassis in the back of a 8” screen. With a car specific installation kit you can achieve a perfect installation and operation.

The built-in Bluetooth® module allows wireless connection of a mobile phone for hands-free communication, while frequent software updates ensure full compatibility with the latest phones. A very intuitive user interface makes it very easy to operate and also includes a speed dial function for the most frequently called numbers. Bluetooth® also enables audio streaming from the phone: audio content or even internet radio can be wirelessly transferred to the unit.
DAB Digital Radio
The built-in DAB/DAB+/DMB tuner uses the most advanced digital technology to deliver radio reception in outstanding, noise-free sound quality.
