If you are looking for maximum screen size in your dashboard, the Alpine Halo 11 (iLX-F115D) is for you. Its 11-inch HD screen is especially suitable for any vehicle with a large dashboard, such as motorhomes, pick-up trucks, vans, camping-busses, etc, but can of course also used in any other vehicle with a 1DIN or 2DIN radio dock and brings the very latest entertainment features and formats to your ride.

The iLX-F115D Alpine Halo 11 is the second generation of Alpine’s world-famous Halo product line, featuring a gigantic XXL 11-inch high-resolution WXGA touch-screen and is compatible with virtually any vehicle with 1DIN or 2DIN installation dock. This Head Unit is especially suitable for vans, pick-up trucks, motorhomes or any other vehicle with a large dashboard – or simply any user looking for maximum screen size. The super-slim display appears to simply hover over your dashboard and can be adjusted in various ways for the best position.

Enjoy wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (wired) compatibility, DAB+ digital radio, USB video playback, Hi-Res Audio playback, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming and much more with this amazing Head Unit.

Bring exceptionally good sound quality into your vehicle: the Alpine Halo 11 is the world’s first Head Unit featuring a built-in Class-D amplifier and has a wide array of professional sound tuning functions, such as 2-way X-overs, a Parametric EQ, digital time correction and much more.

11-INCH XXL HD DISPLAY

The Alpine Halo 11 is the culmination of the Alpine Halo display platform. The large, 11-inch HD touch-screen display features a resolution of 1280 x 720p (WXGA) and has 49% more surface area than the highly popular, award winning Alpine Halo 9 – making icons, menus and visual content even more crisp and vibrant in your dash. The screen is attached to an adjustable mount connected to a single-DIN chassis that’s designed to fit in most 1DIN or 2DIN dash openings.

WIRELESS APPLE CARPLAY

The iLX-F115D “Works with Apple CarPlay” wirelessly and lets iPhone users make and receive calls, access and write text messages, play music, and get direction in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay is accessed through the capacitive touchscreen or the mic button to activate Siri voice control. Due to the WiFi connection, you can keep your iPhone in your pocket and do not need to plug it in all the time (except for charging).

2X USB PORTS

While the Alpine Halo 11 is mech-less (no built-in CD/DVD drive), you still have plenty of entertainment options. 2 USB ports located on the back of the unit allow you for example to connect one mobile device for charging, while the other USB port is used to plug in a USB stick or hard drive to access audio and video files.

USER-ADJUSTABLE DISPLAY

With five vertical adjustments, free angle selection, and two separate depths, you can position the floating display in the most optimal position, so you still have access to your dash controls and air vents. The user now can freely adjust the display angle at any time, to achieve best visibility and to avoid sunlight glare.

BUILT-IN CLASS-D AMPLIFIER

The iLX-F115D is the world’s first aftermarket Head Unit featuring a built-in 4x 50 Watts Class-D amplifier – allowing excellent, high-end sound reproduction with highly reduced noise or phase shift. The key benefit of Class-D amplification technology is its high efficiency of about 90%, compared to 50 – 70% of Class AB amplifiers. New high-speed fans with internal heat sinks keep your Alpine Halo 11 cool – and the music playing.

ENJOY EXCELLENT SOUND QUALITY

Featuring a 56-band Parametric EQ in the advanced mode, a 2-way digital X-over, 6-channel digital time correction and several Bass Engine SQ and MediaXpander sound tuning options, you have excellent tools at your disposal to tune your Alpine Halo 11 and the attached amp / speaker system to perfection. But we didn’t stop there: The Alpine Halo 11 is Hi-Res Audio certified and can decode and playback Hi-Res Audio files up to 96kHz / 1.536 kbps from USB sources in uncompressed supported formats such as FLAC, WAV and APE.

WIDE ENTERTAINMENT OPTIONS

The all new DAB/ radio tuner allows DAB – FM switching and lets you enjoy seamless radio reception without interruptions. Next the increased USB video playback formats (MP4, MOV, FLV, MKV), the Alpine Halo 11 features many additional entertainment options: the built-in Bluetooth module allows audio streaming from your phone and the HDMI input enables the connection of an external video playback device. You can of course use Android Auto with any compatible smartphone running Android (wired connection).

VEHICLE DATA-BUS CONNECTIONS

If your car is equipped with parking sensors and, you can continue to use these convenient functions with your iLX-F115D. Alpine offers many vehicle data-bus interfaces to connect your Alpine Halo 11 to your vehicle’s data-bus system. This enables compatibility with your vehicle’s steering wheel control buttons, display of air conditioning settings as well parking sensor display.

DRIVE-ASSIST CAMERAS

A rear view camera is a great way to make reversing safer. The camera image automatically comes on when you shift into reverse and distance guides that can be adjusted to match your car size will appear on the screen to help you safely park your car. Alpine offers a wide variety of front and rear facing cameras, including multi-view cameras with selectable viewing angles. You can even view the camera screen and parking sensor screen simultaneously, if your car supports it.

EXTERNAL CONTROL KNOB

The separately available RUE-BK01 control knob connects wirelessly to the Alpine Halo 11 and can be installed to the left or right side of the touch-screen. Alternatively you can also place the control knob anywhere else in the vehicle with a simple custom installation. Turning the knob will adjust the Head Unit’s volume output, while pushing it activates the rear view camera on the screen.
Note: this control knob has no function if wireless Apple CarPlay is active.

 

Alpine DVR C320S

dash cam is an on-board camera that continuously records the view through the vehicle’s front windshield. The recorded footage can be used as digital evidence in the event of a road accident, break-in or vandalism. When parked, dash cams can capture video and picture evidence if vandalism is detected.

The DVR-C320S records in 1080p Full-HD for excellent picture quality and includes driver assistance functions, such as lane departure warnings, rear proximity alert and others, as well as GPS and WiFi capabilities. You can connect the camera to compatible Alpine head units to display recorded footage and even a live-view on the touch screen. There is also an optional rear accessory camera available. You can use the convenient companion app to make adjustments and view recordings on the go.

Best Quality Drive Recording

The DVR-C320S records in 1080p Full HD with 29 frames per second and features the CMOS image sensor for great recording quality even at night. This allows you to record important details such as vehicle number plates to have a solid proof of events in a court of law. GPS geo-information and driving speed are recorded as well.

Traffic Incident Recording

After you enter your vehicle and start your engine, the dash cam will automatically start recording. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism. In case of an accident, the Active Impact Monitoring System will automatically store the video data ten seconds prior to and after a collision registered by the 3-axis G-Sensor. The DVR-C320S comes with a 32GB micro SD card.

Alpine Multimedia Receiver Control

You can connect your DVR-C320S to a compatible Alpine Mobile media or navi system, to access the dash cam menu, controls and a live-view right on your Alpine screen. You can also view recorded footage on your display.

Day and Night Vehicle Surveillance

The DVR-C320S includes a parking mode that keeps your car under surveillance even at night. If any impact by another car, bike, etc is noted, the camera will store this video footage and you can review it later to identify and proof what happened. The camera will notify you in the morning of any recorded incidences during the night.

Built-in GPS

Using the GPS data from the built-in GPS antenna, the DVR-C320S can precisely pinpoint the vehicle’s location and routes with its driving speed on the map. GPS helps you accurately assess the status of an accident by providing you with the vehicle speed, the direction of the collision and the severity of impact. The GPS location can be seen on the digital map in the Dash Cam Viewer.

Driver Warnings and Support

The DVR-C320S is packed with additional technology to support you while driving and keep you safe. Rear Proximity Alert warns you, if a car behind you is driving very close without proper safety distance to your vehicle (requires additional RVC-C320 rear camera). Lane Departure Warning alerts you, if your vehicle moves out of its lane. Forward Collision Warning helps to prevent or reduce the severity of a collision. Front Vehicle Departure Notification lets the driver know the vehicle in front is pulling away from an intersection. You can also upload a speed camera database to the DVR-C320S to receive warnings when you approach a speed camera or red light camera.

Rear Proximity Alert

If a vehicle drives behind you without correct safety distance, the system will trigger a warning message on your compatible Alpine screen (if you drive 50km/h or faster and the vehicle behind you has less than 10 meters distance over a duration of 5 seconds or longer). This really helps your awareness of dangerous situations in traffic. This feature requires a RVC-C320 connected to the DVR-C320S.

Lane Departure Warning System

Drowsy or distracted driving greatly increases the chance of an accident on the road. The Lane Departure Warning System will alert the driver when the vehicle goes off lane in a speed over 50 km/h.

Forward Collision Warning System

Accidents can be avoided by maintaining a safe following distance. The Forward Collision Warning System of the DVR-C320S calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, while driving above 30 km/h in highways or under 30 km/h in a busy city, and issues a 3-level early warning to the driver depending on the danger of collision.

Speed Camera Warning

You can download the speed camera database here to receive in-time warnings when approaching speed cameras or red light cameras at intersections (legal operation of this function is subject to local traffic law).

Dash Cam Viewer for PC and MAC

The intuitive and simple-to-use interface of the Alpine Dash Cam Viewer for PC and MAC allows you to easily view your recorded videos. Playback and download recorded videos along with your route history and speed recording and see, if any videos have been tagged by the camera with a recorded impact by another car (parking mode). You can also change the dash cam settings or format the memory card. You can download the Alpine Dash Cam Viewer from the support section below.

HDR Technology and Super Night Vision

HDR technology applied to the DVR-C320S provides rich colours and the optimal resolution. If you turn on Super Night Vision, it improves low light sensitivity by providing bright and high resolution video, allowing clear imaging in low light environments.
