    Installed Alpine Halo9 on my 2006 Coupe Alpine ILX F309

    Hi all - New 3rd gen owner here.

    1. If anyone knows who owned this car before me, I would love to know more about the build from DC Performance. 2006 Viper with the pro-charger, exhaust, moton club sport suspension, came from Chicago
    2. I wanted to replace the basic Alpine HU my car came with and my local audio guys recommended this newish Alpine Halo9. It is a 9" screen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

    Pros:
    -9" Capacitive touch - very responsive and similar to any iPad or Android tablet
    -I was able to add a reverse camera. Supports many more with the addition of a module
    -I didn't want to cut the dash to make room for a double-din. This unit fits in the 1-din space and can be adjusted in many ways. The A/C controls are still easily accessible
    -Phone and hands-free work very well, its really nice to have CarPlay read me texts and also reply back. I had this option before with my previous unit, but seems to work a little better here

    Cons:
    -It is close to the shifter, so you can hit it if you are not careful. Not a big deal if you are mindful of it being there.
    -Resolution is not the greatest, but I'm not planing on watching any video
