Alpine Electronics Expands Built-In Bluetooth® Wireless Technology to 10 New Models

Back January 10, 2012

Expanded product line includes advanced features and support for various smartphones

Torrance, Calif. (Jan. 10, 2012) - Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. has increased its number of models featuring built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology, boasting 10 new receivers. The lineup represents the largest quantity of Alpine receivers ever equipped with built-in Bluetooth wireless technology. All models will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Jan. 10-13 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“Built-in Bluetooth is a high-demand feature, and we are excited to offer it in so many new models this year,” said Steve Crawford, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “Our engineers studied consumers’ concerns with conventional Bluetooth systems, so we were able to address these issues with new product features such as an improved user interface and sound quality enhancements.”

Alpine’s new advanced Bluetooth wireless technology offers ease-of-use and improved sound quality, two areas which greatly affect the user experience. A number of intuitive features contribute to Alpine’s interface, including: secure simple pairing (SSP), display of phone battery level, cellular signal level, received message icon and easy call waiting use. Sound quality for streaming music is improved thanks to Alpine’s own digital sound processor (DSP)-tuned audio (on select models). Hands-free calls are enhanced with a sound maximizer for clearer reception. The driver can mount the separate, external microphone in the spot best suiting his or her needs (such as on the visor).

Also new for 2012 is direct control of Pandora® internet radio from an Android™ or BlackBerry® smartphone, through Bluetooth wireless technology (on select models). Pandora stations can be controlled using the buttons or soft keys on the Alpine unit. Users can rate songs with thumbs up or thumbs down, bookmark songs for purchase later and create new Pandora stations with the touch of a button.

Alpine’s Bluetooth wireless technology-equipped models fit a variety of formats and needs. Options range from 1-DIN and 2-DIN CD receivers, to audio/video (AV) head units, to full-featured audio/video/navigation (AVN) systems.
