At the annual Consumer Electronics Show, we’ve seen carPlay and Android Auto automotive infotainment systems on display by many car audio brands. This year, for example, we’ve seen new CarPlay/Android Auto car receivers from big names such as Alpine, Vanguard, Jensen and JVC/Kenwood. First, the Alpine home’s 11-inch capacitive touch screen model claims to be the largest backmarket product on the market today, with a 49% increase over the 9-inch model.

The display can be hovered over the dashboard and can be installed in most vehicles without the need for hassle-refitting. It has an adjustable base and is connected to a traditional single DIN mounting position.
Other features of the iLX-F411 include a non-mechanical design with a CD/DVD slot- To better match the inclination and height of the center console, it also provides four sets of preset elevation parameters.
The machine supports Bluetooth music playback, is SiriusXM compatible, provides USB-A and AUX inputs, HDMI input/output terminals, and a reversing image input.
When working in non-CarPlay mode, the iLX-F11 can also customize the user interface with 22 widgets. Alpine says the new product will be available in the U.S. in June 2020 and has a suggested retail price of $1,200 (8333 RMB).
In addition, the company offers two 9-inch in-vehicle infotainment systems, the ILX-F309 and the ILX-F259, which are priced at $800 / $1200 (5555 / 8333 RMB) respectively.
Pioneer also showcased five new CarPlay/Android Auto receivers at this year’s CES, starting with the DMH-WT8600NEX, which features a 10.1-inch, 720p capacitive touchscreen.
Like The Alpine home, it can also be hovered over the dashboard and can be put into service without the need for extra modifications.
The company says the DMH-WT8600NEX supports a wired or wireless CarPlay screen, meaning iPhone users can connect via a Lighting USB cable or via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
The model retails for $1,200 (8333 RMB) in the U.S., but no exact date has been announced, in addition to The Pioneer’s release of two 6.8-inch and two 9-inch receivers.
Finally, Jensen and JVC/Kenwood also showed off their new CarPlay car devices at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020).
