Not Bad...Could Be Better

Ed B., Crutchfield
18 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought the Alpine ICS-X7HD for my 93 Toyota MR2; needing an upgrade really bad, and wanting something different from the typical CD/DVD unit.
  • Pros: Nice 7" screen; Bluetooth for hands free calling and audio streaming; Mechless...who needs cd/dvds stacked up in the car!;HD Radio, Plays DIVX format, transfer those dvds to DIVX and save them on a USB drive. MirrorLink is adequate using Samsung's Drive Link with my Galaxy Note II.
  • Cons: Touchscreen is slow to respond as well for turning off the unit.

Prototype Technology

K4, Crutchfield
24 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this under the assumption that it included a CD/DVD player; I almost returned it, but after realizing that I have not used a CD in a car for years, that it included the largest screen size in the Alpine lineup, and that it came with a universal AVI input, I decided to try it out. I'm happy I did. Like some other reviews on here, I think Alpine's ICS line has potential, but seems half-baked.
  • Pros: Sound, Bluetooth, AVI input (resisting urge to hook up Playstation!)
  • Cons: Subtle screen freezing due to menu graphics; funky home screen logic

good but missing one feature

Gary B., Crutchfield
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Overall the unit is good if you've moved beyond discs. The only function missing that could easily be added (by software) is to have the unit running with just the clock on the screen. This would mean the unit was on and ready to receive a call via bluetooth, but the screen would not be taken up with anything else (like radio, ipod functions, aux).
  • Pros: great non mech head unit.
  • Cons: No clock when off, no clock only screen when on.

Mixed Review

DRR, Crutchfield
23 August 2013
  • Summary: Thought seriously about App Radio 3 but Pioneer tech told me it does not support XM. That news, and given Alpine's solid reputation, led me to the "mechless" unit. My reaction is consistent with other reviewers. I'll add the following: 1.) Unit sounds great. I'm using JL speakers, sub & amp and am quite pleased with sonic quality. 2.) Siri integration is good. Can safely place calls, send emails & texts, and search music all by voice command. 3.
  • Pros: Great sound quality. Good concept.
  • Cons: Fully iPhone compatibility still limited to iPhone 4 series. iPhone 5, now out for about a year, is only partially supported.

Slow and functionality is not well designed

AP, Crutchfield
25 June 2013
  • Summary: The product lacks many things in my opinion. I was very excited to receive the unit from Crutchfield but after installing it and playing around with it I noticed may flaws that need improving. 1. Display reaction to your touch is slow and when it switches screens or you access the favorites list it takes a while for the motion of the screen to react. 2. Functionality is not well mapped out 3. The scroll is ackward and sometimes doesn't react 4.
  • Pros: Alpine features, mx expander, built in xover, 6 outputs plus Aux in, 24 bit DAC
  • Cons: See Above, much better offerings out there for the money.. I would say AppRadio 3 but the I still think the radios are in its infancy. I think next year AppRadio 4 could be a real leader in the field of App Radios.

Great media center for the car

TheMightyElk, Crutchfield
23 June 2013
  • Summary: Alpine has a winner with the media centric X7HD after getting it setup correctly and configured it works great to stream and control music from a mobile device via Bluetooth and USB its especially nice to be able to use navigation without having to find you phone floating around on the seat. i would highly recommend this deck to anyone looking for a media control touchscreen.
  • Pros: Great interface once configured
  • Cons: a little slow to respond sometimes
