The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 does not stop! And we, of course, keep bringing all the big news about Apple's ecosystem – now, it's time to talk about the newest automotive receivers presented by Alpine and Pioneer.
Let's take a look at them?
The manufacturer announced the iLX-F411, the largest screen receiver available on the market – 11 inches, basically placing an iPad Pro-sized dashboard on your car's console. The display is floating type and can be adjusted in height, allowing its installation in traditional automotive modules (1 DIN) without obstruction of vehicle controls.
The device also has a Bluetooth connection, SiriusXM radio preparation, USB-A port, auxiliary input, HDMI input and output and a rear car camera input. It also supports, of course, CarPlay and Android Auto (we don't know if it's on the wireless version, however), and will come out for $ 1,200 in the United States, scheduled for release next June.
The traditional Pioneer presented a similar solution, but with slightly smaller screen. The DMH-WT8600NEX (no, the name is not very pretty) has a 10.1 inch screen and 720p resolution; Like the Alpine device, it can be installed in automotive modules (1 DIN) and have its height adjusted.
Pioneer's receiver comes with CarPlay support in both wired and wireless versions, so you can connect your iPhone to the device with either a Lightning cable or Bluetooth. The device has no release date yet, but will come out for $ 1,200; The manufacturer also announced similar options with 6.8 and 9 inch screens.
