Get more with an 8” display
While the size of other stereo head units has topped out at 7” due to size restrictions of dashboard openings, that wasn’t good enough for the Alpine INE-Z928HD. This receiver has an impressive 8” display offering substantially more screen real estate than 7” models.  Colors and images are larger, brighter and sharper than ever before, especially GPS maps.

How does an 8” receiver fit?
Alpine has developed what they call “Perfect Fit” kits, which are custom dash kits for some of the most popular vehicles being driven today. Perfect Fit allows the INE-Z928HD to blend perfectly with the dash of your vehicle, while at the same time mounting the receiver in a way that appears custom-installed. These Perfect Fit packages even come with wiring adapters that allow the unit to connect directly to factory electronics and wiring, even premium sound systems from the manufacturer, and you don’t have to jump through hoops to keep your steering wheel audio controls, and other factory features like OnStar. If Alpine doesn’t have a dash kit specific to your vehicle, they do offer a universal dash bezel.

Made for iPod and iPhone
The Alpine INE-Z928HD gives you in-dash control of your iPod and iPhone, making it easier to find all your favorite artists and songs including full search functionality. You can also easily view and control movies played through your iPod on the INE-Z928HD screen. Fast USB connectivity ensures you won’t be slowed down as you use the device.

Powerful Navigation
Vehicle GPS Navigation has never been more convenient, easy to read, and beautiful.  This unit even allows you to split the screen, with maps on one side and your music info on the other. When driving on the highway, the unit will let you know what lane you should be in before the next split or exit ramp. The INE-Z928HD also sports a 3D map feature to show terrain and buildings, and is preloaded with NAVTEQ® map data of the U.S. (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Custom Sound Tuning
The INE-Z928HD is also furnished with i-Personalize, a program that allows sound field settings to be automatically adjusted for your vehicle. The unit comes preloaded with speaker count, upholstery type and speaker location for the 19 vehicles with Perfect Fit dash kits, and for other vehicles you can enter these parameters yourself.
