Alpine X009-FD1 9 Inch Ford Restyle
The X009-FD1 is Alpine
’s new solution for the 2009-2012 Ford F150 Trucks. It is the first of it’s kind with a full 9 inch screen. Most of the competition has 6 to 7 inches max. Because of the big size of the screen it requires a very special mounting kit. But the kit comes with the unit. The X009-FD1 also comes with what is normally a very expensive integration harness. The harness comes with electronics that allows all factory functions of the Ford F150 to continue to work with the new receiver. That means that if they have factory satellite radio that it will still work, same with factory Bluetooth, and other features that the vehicle might have such as displaying transmission temperature. This new 9 inch Alpine receiver also has a much better navigation system and better control of the sound and equalization.
The X009-FD1 offers Alpines most advance application system “TUNE IT 2.0” which allows the driver or passengers to connect their phone, use many of their phone apps and it will receive and show and read back any face book post the person wants to hear hands free, same with text messages (send or receive) and emails (send or receive) I do not know of ANY other unit that offers these new and very cool features.
