Don’t fuss or fiddle with your phone and say goodbye to uncomfortable headsets and earpieces. Most importantly, stay focused on safe driving. Many state laws require you to use a hands-free device if you are driving behind the wheel, and with good reason. The perfect way to stay safe and still carry conversations in the car is with the use of a hands-free device. Get the convenience of carrying phone conversations in your car, hands-free with the CDE-103BT! The CDE-103BT is equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology, without the need for any additional adapters.
The CDE-103BT is powered by Parrot, the global leader in wireless devices for mobile phones, for expanded compatibility for many Bluetooth wireless technology enabled cell phones. Check with your local authorized Alpine retailer for phone compatibility.
Now, make and take phone calls conveniently. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. View caller information including caller ID, missed, dialed, and received calls right from the head unit display. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. Once the call is finished, the music plays again. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music an enjoyable, and convenient driving experience.
With a dedicated USB input and USB cable, you can even connect USB memory devices like thumbdrives and USB hard drives. Song lists on USB devices are displayed in alphabetical order, and allows eight levels of file / folder search capabilities. This unit will find music files while ignoring other file types on the USB device.
