Well Alpine now has substantial stock of the new ICSX-8 MirrorLink DVD/AV Player.

This unit is an incredible product and Carbon Car Systems will be selling it for $1349 inc GST + installation if required.

After having a play with this unit we believe this has to be one of the best value units on the market.

Some of the stand out features for us where:
Faster GUI Navigation speeds / Processing of on screen touching
The reverse camera comes on straight away as soon as vehicle put in reverse even when the unit is still loading!! This is perfect because on older Alpine units the camera would not show on screen till after the unit had booted up
Easy customisable GUI
MirrorLink ability for Samsung, Nokia and iPhone Devices that allows you to use your phones navigation without additional cost!
24 bit DAC
3x 4v Pre Outs
7" High Resolution WVGA LCD Touch Screen.
Built in Bluetooth Handsfree and Audio Streaming (BT Plus)
USB Video / DIVX Playback (Previous Alpine Units Did Not Have This)
External Bluetooth Microphone
Ability to add GPS Antenna Receiver for increase Navigation accuracy (optional extra)

This unit is an incredible unit but there is only one thing to be aware of with MirrorLink still being slowly adopted by most companies compatibility with all features and functions will require regular future updates in order to keep up with all the new applications.

In Australia you must register the unit with Alpine Australia to be eligible for these updates and this can only happen if you use an Australia Model Serial Number. So please do not be caught out buying an overseas model!!

All in all an incredible unit.

Feel free to contact us anytime if you want more information or would like to buy one of these beauties!
