Tuning Has Never Been Easier
The INE-Z928HD is equipped with a built-in i-Personalize program that allows sound field settings to be adjusted automatically for your vehicle. This program comes pre-loaded with data about speaker count, speaker locations and the upholstery type for the 19 vehicles in the Alpine Perfect F.I.T. (Factory Integration Technology) dash kit program. Just choose your vehicle from the database, and the INE-Z928HD calculates and applies the best sound settings for your vehicle.
If your vehicle doesn’t have a Perfect F.I.T. dash kit, not to worry, you can still get the best sound for your vehicle. Select your vehicle type (SUV, sedan, etc), upholstery type (leather, fabric etc), number of speakers and speaker locations, and the INE-Z928HD will calculate and apply the best sound field settings for your vehicle. Or, visit an online version of i-Personalize for detailed time-correction and sound tuning. Once your adjustments are made online, you can download the parameters to a USB drive and transfer the settings to the INE-Z928HD. Now that is personalization!

Close Encounters with 3D Maps.
The INE-Z928HD uses an enhanced navigation platform, which includes 3D view. Major landmarks, buildings and terrain details in main metropolitan areas are depicted in 3D, for easier recognition while driving. Freeway exit routes and exit signs are presented in vivid 3D detail, to give you a realistic view of where to go. Other navigation features include a customizable highway services list that is shown at each exit (Gas, Food, ATMs, etc.) along the highway; and Smart Zoom which is much more than just a usual automatic zoom feature. When approaching a turn, it will zoom-in and raise the viewing angle to let you easily recognize your next driving maneuver. If the next turn is at a distance it will zoom-out and lower the viewing angle, making it flat so you can see the road ahead of you; Also new is the Freeform Search function, which lets you type in the first letters of the destination using the company name (ex: Alpine) or a category type (ex: Electronics Company).
Advanced Accuracy with OnPoint™ Plus
The INE-Z928HD uses Alpine's OnPoint Plus Advanced GPS Positioning. This ensures that your vehicle stays accurately positioned on the map even in areas where it's difficult to receive GPS reception, such as in a tunnel or around tall buildings. OnPoint Plus simultaneously uses three technologies -- satellite-linked positioning data, gyro sensor technology (to determine the vehicle's direction) and accelerometer technology (to gauge the vehicle's speed) -- resulting in continuous coverage of the location of your vehicle. As an additional assurance for accuracy, an optional connection to the vehicle’s speed pulse signal is available. The INE-Z928HD will also give you an on-screen alert, warning you of the current speed limit if you exceed it. With all of these technologies working together, OnPoint Plus ensures you’re spot-on while en route.
Let Alpine Lead the Way
With turn-by-turn instructions delivered by Text-to-Speech (TTS) technology, street names, freeway numbers and freeway exit names are announced clearly through your vehicle’s audio system. Directions are available in English, Spanish, or French. With a unique database of 6 million POI's (Points of Interest), you can choose from a plethora of places to go, whether you're hungry and looking for a place to eat, or need to fill up at the nearest gas station! Assistive mapping visuals display essential driving information such as One-Way Street icons and Highway Junction View for maneuvering complex interchanges. These extra navigation features help smoothly guide you right to your destination!

Built-In HD Radio®
Alpine does HD. Get all the music and programming you want to hear in a crystal-clear digital format. FM stations with CD-quality sound and AM stations with FM-quality sound, both with virtually no distortion. Extend your music choice further with multi-casting capability HD1, HD2, and HD3 and you'll hear more talk and music content from the stations you already receive. Alpine’s exclusive Smart Reception Management keeps you tuned in to your favorite HD digital sub-channels, even when you’re in an area with limited digital reception.
Smart Reception Management: A Better Way to Listen to HD Radio
Traditional HD Radio equipped tuners will use an auto-switching method when listening to the main & multi-casting channels. It works really well on the main channels, however when listening to a sub-channel, you will be switched back to the main channel if the digital signal is temporarily lost. This interruption can be a frustrating experience to stay engaged on a particular multi-casting channel if the digital signal is weak. Alpine’s solution provides Smart Reception Control through the default setting "Digital MC”. The Digital MC setting uses a Hybrid method of auto-switching analog and digital on the main channel, and uses all-digital for sub-channels. Alpine’s solution keeps you on the channel you desire, resulting in a better overall HD Radio experience.
Made for iPod® / Works with iPhone®
It’s convenient to control your iPod or iPhone in the car – enjoy seamless operation of your iPod in addition to full control of all your favorite media sources. Control all search options of your iPod directly from the INE-Z928HD via Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, Podcast or Composer. The USB connection allows for high-quality iPod playback and delivers an even faster access speed so you’ll find songs as quickly as you expect to find them on your iPod.
Get access to and control of all the songs from your iPod or iPhone right from the head unit! Large music libraries are no problem with a faster connection speed and QuickSearch featuring Alphabet Search, you can easily scroll through long lists of music by skipping through the letters of the alphabet. Once you find the letter you want, you can jump to the exact song!
