When Alpine Decided to develop an infotainment system for Audi drivers, they only had one goal in mind: To create a high-end system that exceeds all the expectations Audi owners may have. The result is a premium infotainment system that perfectly integrates into the Audi A4, A5 and Q5 to bring the latest media compatibility, cutting-edge navigation technology and audiophile sound quality to your vehicle. All components are designed to fit perfectly in existing installation locations and integrate fully with the vehicles electronic systems.
Perfect vehicle integration with premium components. Performance without compromise. Welcome to Alpine Style.
It requires extensive research and detailed understanding of the vehicle to design a Head Unit that perfectly integrates with the vehicle’s electronic systems. The X701D-A4R is fully compatible with the Audi A4 / A5 steering wheel control buttons and the multi-information display in the instrument cluster to maintain all important vehicle functions.
Alpine Control Panel
The original audio control panel is replaced by an Alpine panel that allows direct access to audio sources, navigation, rear view camera and more. It is designed to integrate perfectly into your vehicle’s dashboard.
High Resolution Touch Screen
The 7-inch (17.8cm) high-resolution display allows full operation of the system via touch-screen technology and features the latest video technology for outstanding picture clarity, contrast and resolution. This allows navigation maps to be displayed in stunning detail, while movies or video clips become a real cinematic experience. The user interface is very intuitive and is designed to perfectly integrate into your vehicle. You’ll soon appreciate the ease of use and convenience of direct touch operation in your Audi.
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. DAB+ also offers many other advantages over traditional FM radio: select from a much wider range of radio stations and after an initial station scan you can easily select your desired channels from an alphabetic and genre list of available stations.
Audi uses the main display to show vehicle settings and warning messages (such as low oil level). The Alpine system is fully compatible with the Audi electronic systems and can therefore display all menus and warnings. We even redesigned most of the graphics to look very modern.
Premium Sound Quality
Alpine is known worldwide for excellent sound quality. Our audio specialists engineered the X701D-A4R with the greatest attention to detail — from selection of high-grade components to precision audio tuning — to deliver a truly high-end sound experience for your Audi. The system also offers many sound adjustment functions such as digital time correction and professional equalisation to allow users to adjust the system to their own preferences.
Since the Alpine system is fully connected to the vehicle’s electronic system, you can get many additional functions on the main screen such as parking sensor display, air condition and heater settings, seat heating settings and many more (depends on original equipment)
Optional DVD Player
Upgrade your Alpine infotainment system with DVD playback capability. The DVE-5300X is designed to fit exactly behind the audio control panel to be easily reached from the driver’s seat. It uses HDMI technology for stunning image quality and can be fully controlled from the touch screen or the Alpine control panel. The DVD Player provides DVD, CD, MP3, DivX, FLAC and many more playback formats.
An Audiophile Sound Experience
We highly recommend upgrading your sound system if you install the Alpine Style Infotainment system to get a true audiophile sound experience in your Audi A4 or A5. Alpine offers the choice of a high-end front speaker system or a full audiophile grade sound system which includes a digital high-end amplifier with built-in DSP. Both systems are designed and tuned to ensure an excellent sound experience in your Audi.
Parking Assistance Technology
The optional rear-view camera system provides parking safety with cutting-edge camera technology. The rear-view camera automatically activates when reversing and also mutes the audio so you can hear the parking sensor signals. You not only have a clear view to the rear, you can also see useful distance guides that are programmed to exactly match the Audi’s measurements for easier parking.
With the HCE-C252RD you have a choice of four viewing modes. Multi-view splits the screen so you have a clearer view of both left and right behind the car. Top view is very convenient when backing up to hook up a trailer, enabling you to get within centimetres of the trailer. There’s also a picture in-picture function that shows the regular rear view in a small screen when you’ve selected a special viewing mode.
