Alpine introduces the 3rd generation Alpine Style system for the Audi A5 (Model Year 2007-2016)
This Advanced Navi Station brings the latest media compatibility, touch-screen technology, cutting-edge navigation technology and Alpine’s audiophile sound quality to your A5. The built-in iGo Primo navigation system with TomTom maps features 3 years free-of-charge map updates and is now compatible with your driver information display in the cockpit to view turn-by-turn arrows.
It also includes online navigation capability to use navigation apps such as Waze, Google Maps, Sygic, Magic Earth with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps can access the Alpine navigation antenna for highest positioning accuracy.
The 3rd generation Audi System features a much faster quad-core CPU and highly increase system memory for fast route calculation and smooth zooming and scrolling.
All system components are designed to fit perfectly in existing installation locations and integrate fully with the vehicle’s electronic systems.
The 7-inch (17.8cm) high-resolution display allows full operation of the system via touch-screen technology and features the latest video technology for outstanding picture clarity, contrast and resolution. This allows navigation maps to be displayed in stunning detail, while movies or video clips become a real cinematic experience. The user interface is very intuitive and is designed to perfectly integrate into your vehicle. You’ll soon appreciate the ease of use and convenience of direct touch operation in your Audi.
The Alpine system is connected to your steering wheel control buttons. This means you do not lose this convenient feature when upgrading to Alpine and you will have full control over volume, phone, audio track forward/backward and many other commands. You can even activate voice control for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto right from your steering wheel.
The original audio control panel is replaced by an Alpine panel that allows direct access to audio sources, navigation, rear view camera and more. It is designed to integrate perfectly into your vehicle’s dashboard.
The X703D-A5 is linked to the driver information display in the instrument cluster. It can display radio station names, audio sources, caller names and much more. It is now also possible to display turn-by-turn arrows of the built-in iGo navigation system or Android Auto based navigation apps.
Audi uses the main display to show vehicle settings and warning messages (such as low oil level). The Alpine system is fully compatible with the Audi electronic systems and can therefore display all menus and warnings. You can also display air condition and heater settings, seat heating settings and many more (depends on original equipment)
The adapter KWE-DY01G6 is needed, if your Audi A5 is equipped with an Audi sound system (Audi Sound 9VD or B&O 9VK). It allows you to connect the X703D-A5 to the factory sound system. It is an attenuator which matches the more powerful Alpine Navigation System to the OEM amplifier.
Alpine is known worldwide for excellent sound quality. Our audio specialists engineered this system with the greatest attention to detail, from selection of high-grade components to precision audio tuning, to deliver a truly high-end sound experience for your Audi. The system also offers many sound adjustment functions such as digital time correction and professional equalization to allow users to adjust the system to their own preferences.
The X703D-A5 can be equipped with Alpine reversing and multi-view cameras that can be controlled right from the touch-screen display. The system is also compatible with the car’s parktronic system, which can be displayed simultaneously with the parking camera or stand-alone. We even redesigned the parktronic display in the 2nd generation system to show much greater detail.
The optional rear-view camera system provides parking safety with cutting-edge camera technology. The rear-view camera automatically activates when reversing. You not only have a clear view to the rear, you can also see useful distance guides that are programmed to exactly match the Audi's measurements for easier parking.
The Alpine system allows you to enjoy movies, music videos or TV shows from many different sources, such as DVDs from the optional optical drive, USB sticks, or the latest smartphones with HDMI output. You can also connect your Apple CarPlay or Android Auto enabled smartphone to enjoy Spotify or other entertainment apps on the high-resolution 7-inch display. Alpine also offers an all-new DVB-T2 tuner (TUE-T220DV) if you like to watch TV programs while you are stuck in traffic jams. For driving safety, video playback is only available if the vehicle is not in motion.
The innovative X703D-A5 with Apple CarPlay compatibility brings you a smarter way to use your iPhone on the road. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. You can even enjoy Spotify, internet radio or podcasts while on the road for a truly connected experience. Simply connect your CarPlay enabled iPhone to the USB port of your Alpine and you are ready to go.
Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With a simple and intuitive interface, integrated steering wheel controls, and powerful new voice actions, it's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road. Android Auto automatically brings you useful information, and organizes it into simple cards that appear just when they're needed. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can access the navigation antenna of the X703D-A5 for improved accuracy when using the navi apps.
You can launch the Spotify app through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and enjoy online music on your Alpine. You can fully control the app through your 7-inch touch-screen. The app works with Spotify regular and premium accounts, but offers different control options depending on the account level.
Upgrade your Alpine infotainment system with DVD playback capability. The DVE-5300X is designed to fit exactly behind the audio control panel to be easily reached from the driver’s seat. It uses HDMI technology for stunning image quality and can be fully controlled from the touch screen or the Alpine control panel. The DVD Player provides DVD, CD, MP3, DivX and many more playback formats.
The built-in Bluetooth® module allows wireless connection of a mobile phone for hands-free communication, while frequent software updates ensure full compatibility with the latest phones. A very intuitive user interface makes operation extremely easy. Bluetooth® also enables audio streaming from the phone: audio content or even internet radio can be wirelessly enjoyed on the Alpine system.
The built-in DAB/DAB+/DMB tuner uses the most advanced digital technology to deliver radio reception with outstanding, noise-free sound quality. DAB also offers many other advantages over traditional FM radio: choose from a much wider range of radio stations and after the initial station scan easily select your desired channels from an alphabetic or genre list of available stations.
The iGo Primo NextGen navigation is currently one of the best navigation software on the market. Combined with Alpine’s powerful hardware and processing power, you get a highly accurate and super fast navigation system for your car. For example, calculating a route from Munich to Paris takes just a few seconds. The system is packed with tons of useful and unique navigation features, from partial address input with automatic detection, TMC route guidance, 3D landmark icons and much more. It also includes hundreds-of-thousands of POIs, to make it easy to find restaurants and any kind of public places near you.
A navigation system is only as good as its map database: the X703D-A5 includes TomTom maps for an awesome map coverage of 48 European countries. Within 3 years after the first navigation fix, you can go to alpine.naviextras.com to download map updates free of charge for your Alpine unit – you can even do so without any limitation on how often you update. After 3 years have passed, you can download regional map packages or the full European map update based on your needs for very reasonable cost.
More satellites equal higher navigation accuracy and a faster positioning fix. This Alpine product is compatible with GPS satellite signals and can also receive positioning data from Glonass satellites. This brings big advantages especially in an urban environment with many tall buildings and when driving next to high mountains. When using navigation with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto you can also benefit from this new improved compatibility.
Alpine’s innovative "One Look" split-screen technology allows you to view the navigation map and audio playback information at one glance. This eliminates the need to switch between different applications. You can switch from full screen to One Look view with just a swipe on the display, and you can simply drag the navi map to be shown in the left or in the right window.
You can easily search for POIs by category, name, distance and other criteria. This is very helpful when looking for a specific restaurant franchise or a specific petrol station brand nearby. Restaurant information includes the phone number next to the address and food type – with a quick tap on the screen you can call ahead and reserve a table.
Let Google Maps lead the way. It’s easy to get where you’re going with free voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance and satellite view. Google Maps is available for both Apple CarPlay and android Auto. With larger touch targets, a simplified interface, and easy-to-use voice actions, it's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road.
Waze is the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute.
