20cm High Resolution Touch Screen
The 8-inch (20.3 cm) high-resolution display is 60% larger than the original ML display 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. It also contributes to driving safety: navigation map details are easier to see and destination input keys appear larger and are easier to operate.
DAB Digital Radio
The built-in DAB/DAB+/DMB tuner uses the most advanced digital technology to deliver radio reception in outstanding, noise-free sound quality. DAB also offers many other advantages over traditional FM radio: select from a much wider range of radio stations and after an initial station scan you can easily select your desired channels from an alphabetic and genre list of available stations.
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 X800D-ML is fully compatible with the ML steering wheel control buttons and the multi-information display in the instrument cluster to maintain all important vehicle functions. The system also automatically “wakes” when the driver unlocks the doors.
The X800D-ML allows you to enjoy movies, music videos or TV shows from many different sources, such as DVDs from the built-in optical drive, USB sticks, latest smartphones with HDMI output or portable video devices connected to the A/V connector (optional cables may be required). You can also connect your iPod or iPhone to enjoy your video content on the large 8-inch display. For driving safety the video playback feature is only available if the vehicle is not in motion.
Connect your HDMI enabled smartphone or portable media player via HDMI connection to enjoy all your video content on the X800D-ML’s high-resolution display. Full digital data transfer and the WVGA display ensure excellent image quality. An optional HDMI cable (KCU-610HD for iPhone, Sony Xperia ACRO and Motorola, etc or KCU-610MH for HTC ONE, Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, etc) is required.
Alpine TuneIt App for Tuning and Keeping in Touch
The X800D-ML works with Alpine’s cool and convenient Alpine TuneIt App to bring you custom sound tuning features right from your smartphone.
You can upload your sound settings to the Alpine Cloud Server to share them with other Alpine fans, and see their settings. The app also displays Facebook messages, lets you “Like” them and even reads them to you!
Download Alpine TuneIt App with TTS from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Bass Engine SQ
The X800D-ML puts the power of advanced sound processing in your car with BASS ENGINE SQ to maximise bass sound and overall tone balance, plus lots of custom tuning functions like Digital Time Correction and 9-Band Parametric EQ. Best of all, you can control them easily from your smartphone with the Alpine TuneIt App.
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 X800D-ML.
High-end Sound Quality
Alpine is known worldwide for excellent sound quality. Our audio specialists engineered the X800D-ML with greatest attention to detail – from selection of high-grade components to extensive audio tuning – to deliver a high-end sound experience for the ML. 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.
Extra Convenience for Two Users
If you and your spouse or another person frequently drive the car, you can both save your own user profile. When you enter the car, Bluetooth automatically connects the phone and initiates your profile. The profile includes the basic operating screen as well as favourites, phonebook, radio presets and camera view. You don’t have to manually input settings each time, saving time and making your whole system more convenient to use.
Customise Your Unit for Personal Use
My Favourites lets you put three pages with each eight frequent actions on one screen for one-touch selection, and arrange the layout the way you want it by dragging icons. Tune in your favourite radio stations, search your favourite POI categories, or call your favourite people without scrolling through the phone book. You can also select the background colour and match audio settings to your car model. And all this works for two people, based on Bluetooth phone recognition.
