New BT Plus Bluetooth Features

BT Plus

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 both with the CDE-HD138BT! This unit is equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology so there is no need for any additional adapters.

Making, Taking Calls & Call Waiting

Now, make and take phone calls conveniently. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call. View caller information including caller ID, missed, dialed, and received calls right from the head unit display. If you receive a second call, you can have the first caller wait momentarily by pressing 2 for call waiting mode. Once both calls are finished, the music plays again. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music an enjoyable, convenient driving experience. You can even use the preset buttons on the CDE-HD138BT to quickly jump through your phone book, or set presets with your favorite callers to navigate to your contacts much faster.

Built-In HD Radio®

HD Radio

Get all the music and programming you want to hear in a crystal-clear digital format. FM stations with CD-quality sound and AM stations with FM-quality sound, with virtually no distortion. Extend your music choice further with multi-casting capability HD1, HD2, and HD3 and you'll hear more talk and more music content from the stations you already receive.

Smart Reception Management: A Better Way to Listen to HD Radio

Traditional HD Radio equipped tuners will use an auto-switching method when listening to the main & multi-casting channels. It works really well on the main channels, however when listening to a sub-channel, you will be switched back to the main channel if the digital signal is temporarily lost. This interruption can be a frustrating experience to stay engaged on a particular multi-casting channel if the digital signal is weak. Alpine’s solution provides Smart Reception Control through the default setting “Digital MC”. The Digital MC setting uses a Hybrid method of auto-switching analog and digital on the main channel, and uses all-digital for sub-channels. Alpine’s solution keeps you on the channel you desire, resulting in a better overall HD Radio experience.

iTunes Tagging—Get New Songs on the Go

The CDE-HD138BT is enabled for iTunes Tagging and when you hear a song you like, simply press the on-screen [Tag] button that is displayed below the song information. This iTunes Tagging feature lets you Tag songs you hear on HD Radio stations and stores the song info on your iPod. The next time you connect your iPod to iTunes, you will be able to preview your tagged songs and purchase and download them from directly from iTunes.

Note: Third party services may not be available in all areas; please contact an authorized retailer for coverage in your area.

Plug in an iPod or iPhone

Made for iPod / Works with iPhone

The CDE-HD138BT is more than just a CD player, it is designed to work with your iPod or iPhone - so you can enjoy all your favorites wherever the road takes you.

Connect your iPod or iPhone using the USB cable that came with your iPod or iPhone and you've got access to all your music, right from your head unit. Adding the optional heavy-duty, automotive-grade Alpine KCU-445i USB iPod/iPhone cable is an even better option. This cable can stand up to the rigors of in-car use unlike the cable supplied with your iPod or iPhone used primarily for charging. With USB you get convenient control so you can scroll through all your Playlists, Artists, Albums, and Songs - and view all your song information right from the head unit display. Enjoy all your music whether from your iPod or iPhone, Alpine brings the music to your car.

Note: MP3 device or cell phone can only be independently controlled through the head unit when using the USB connection, not with the AUX connection.
