Alpine IVA-W505R + KCE 300BT
The Alpine IVA-W505R is a full-featured DVD / CD / MP3 / AAC / WMA / DivX audio / video head unit that boasts a new, intuitive graphical interface and touch-screen control over virtually any digital media source in the car, as well as optional Bluetooth connectivity. The IVA-W505R 2-DIN unit also serves as the in-dash docking station for Alpine’s PMD-B200 Blackbird II portable navigation device, enabling you to enjoy the car-to-car convenience of a portable unit while also gaining the myriad benefits of a fixed navigation system.
The Alpine IVA-W505’s 7-inch WVGA touch-screen monitor enables users to easily access and control all their favorite media sources from one place. As an Ai-NET source unit, the IVA-W505R can connect to and control all of today’s most popular digital entertainment sources and communication formats, including MP3 / WMA players with MTP protocol and mass storage devices, and optional Bluetooth hands-free calling. The IVA-W505R connects to iPod classic, iPod video (fifth generation), iPod nano (first through third generations) or iPod Touch via a direct high-speed USB connection. Earlier-generation iPods with a dock connector can link to the IVA-W505R via Alpine’s KCE-422i Full Speed Connection for iPod cable (sold separately). The IVA-W505R can control and play back video from iPod classic, iPod video (fifth generation), iPod nano (third generation) and iPod Touch.
The Alpine IVA-W505R serves as the in-dash docking station for the PMD-B200 Blackbird II portable navigation device (sold separately). The IVA-W505R’s motorised faceplate slides down to a 90-degree angle to reveal a DVD/CD slot and dedicated Blackbird slot. Once the Blackbird is docked inside, all of its navigation features and user controls are transferred to the IVA-W505R’s larger touch screen display, creating a fully integrated audio/video plus navigation (AV+N) in-dash system. Since the Blackbird comes with Bluetooth hands-free calling, the Bluetooth capabilities are also accessible through the IVA-W505R when the Blackbird is docked.

Bluetooth module features
Alpine offers the convenience of carrying phone conversations through your Alpine system. The KCE-300BT was developed in co-operation with Motorola to hook up your Bluetooth compatible cell phone with your Bluetooth ready head unit so you can make phone calls on the road. The beauty of Bluetooth technology is that it’s completely wireless, so you can keep your focus on experiencing the drive.
View Who Called You Last
Once your cell phone is synched to the KCE-300BT, you can view cell phone information, including caller ID, missed calls, dialed calls, and received calls right from the Alpine head unit display.
Call Someone You Know
You can view on-screen, and make a phone call from a contact listed in your address book (available on the 2007 Ai-NET head untis), or via 12-key direct number input (available only on 2007 Ai-NET AV head units).
Groove to your Cell Phone
You can listen to the music from your phone through your system with Streaming Audio. You can also get basic control over the music on your phone such as basic song info on-screen, play/pause, and track up/down functions.
