About this deal

As with most after market radios you do not retain most of the factory controls with out 3rd party applications. Your phone will handle the turn-by-turn directions, and the big capacitive touchscreen allows you to pinch-to-zoom the map display. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. Usually when any menu items are grayed out this is due to the parking brake hookup not being connected, Michael. The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded, while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading.

Apple Music Radio: You can playback Apple Music Radio on your USB-connected Apple iPhone (5S and up) through the Alpine iLX-W650.It looks like with some trim levels (Navigation and Bose audio) we have an accessories package for this radio that can keep your backup camera. The Alpine iLX-W650 has a built-in amplifier with a peak power output of 50 watts per channel and a total of 18 watts RMS power output. The head unit doesn't have Navigation built in, but with Apple CarPlay (and I assume Android Auto) you can use any of several nav apps to display your navigation on the screen. But as far as we can tell, things like Netflix and YouTube streaming video aren't compatible with this unit. Expandability: Inputs: rear USB port, two camera inputs, Works with SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (not included), and Outputs: 6-channel preamp outputs (4-volt front, rear, subwoofer).

I put this unit in my 1999 Miata, and added the power pack amp, because I need more volume for top down driving. It also features a 9-band parametric EQ and time correction to adjust the audio output to the user's preferences.I tried using an extender that slit from one in to two out and the charging worked but not apple play or android play. With space in the Cherokee, you could go with something like the P2-2X12 dual 12" box in the first link below. It works through blue tooth with my pandora but it is more like a remote as it displays song name and artist and allows you to skip to next but thats about it. This receiver does have preamp outputs that allow it to work with any aftermarket amp that has preamp inputs via RCA audio cables.

Either use the “voice” button located on the receiver or your smartphone to get turn-by-turn directions. Smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information. But maps, navigation, apps – all of these features are only going to be accessible from CarPlay or Android Auto and you'll need to plug your phone in for that. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology.If you do need to record video and have integration with the radio, you can use the Alpine DVR-C320R HD dash cam in the link below.

Like most aftermarket radios, the iLX-W650 does not have inherent ability to switch between different cameras with triggers from the turn signals. Google Maps and Waze do not support Siri voice control, but will have their own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver. You've got a full 6-channels of preamp outputs (4-volt front, rear, subwoofer), so you can really connect as many amps as you'd like to the Alpine ILX-W650. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Additionally, the factory subwoofer and subwoofer amplifier will also be lost when replacing the radio. Access the apps you need without getting distracted, and the 7" capacitive touchscreen works just like a tablet, so you'll feel right at home. I recommend however to plug a long USB cable directly into the back of the unit, instead of using the the extender.
