Alpine have introduced a premium Infotainment system designed exclusively for the A4 (Model Year 2007-2015) and A5 (Model Year 2007-2016)
The X701D-A4R gives Audi owners access to the latest media compatibility, cutting-edge navigation technology and Alpine’s audiophile sound quality. All system components are designed to fit perfectly in existing installation locations and integrate fully with the vehicle’s electronic systems.
Perfect System Integration
It requires extensive research and detailed understanding of the vehicle to design a Head Unit that perfectly integrates with the vehicle’s electronic systems. The X701D-A4R is fully compatible with the Audi A4 / A5 steering wheel control buttons and the multi-information display in the instrument cluster to maintain all important vehicle functions.
Alpine Control Panel
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.
High Resolution Touch Screen
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.
Built-in Bluetooth® Technology
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 it very easy to operate and also includes a speed dial function for the most frequently called numbers. Bluetooth® also enables audio streaming from the phone: audio content or even internet radio can be wirelessly transferred to the unit.
Premium Sound Quality
Alpine is known worldwide for excellent sound quality. Our audio specialists engineered the X701D-A4R 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 equalisation to allow users to adjust the system to their own preferences.
Since the Alpine system is fully connected to the vehicle’s electronic system, you can get many additional functions on the main screen such as parking sensor display, air condition and heater settings, seat heating settings and many more (depends on original equipment).
One Look Display
Our innovative “One Look” split-screen technology allows the driver 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. This function is especially useful on long highway trips.
View maps in 3D with detailed buildings and landmarks. This feature helps you to better orientate yourself in big cities. Speed restriction display and speed camera warnings (not available in France) give you further driving assistance.
Points of Interest
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 gas 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.
TMC Route Guidance
Lane Guidance lets the driver know which is the best lane to be in, while Dynamic TMC Route Guidance provides live traffic information for avoiding traffic jams and recalculates the route if necessary.
Advanced Address Input
You can input postal codes for all European countries, including 7-digit UK codes, which makes searching for addresses quicker. The system even reads partial addresses. Select your own language from 33 different keypads, including Cyrillic and Greek.
