Don’t fuss or fiddle with your phone and say goodbye to uncomfortable headsets and earpieces. Most importantly, stay focused on safe driving. Many state laws require you to use a hands-free device if you are driving behind the wheel, and with good reason.

Making, Taking Calls & Call Waiting

Now, make and take phone calls conveniently. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call. View caller information including caller ID, missed, dialed, and received calls right from the head unit display. If you receive a second call, you can have the first caller wait momentarily by pressing 2 for call waiting mode. Once both calls are finished, the music plays again. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music an enjoyable, convenient driving experience. You can even use the CDE-W235BT’s preset buttons to quickly jump through your phone book, making navigation through large phone books much faster.

Hands-Free Calling Sound Customization

To bring sound balance to your Hands-Free experience, you can adjust the CDE-W235BT’s mic gain, phone output and ring tone volume. If that’s not enough, there are 5 sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.

Audio Streaming

Do you have a large music library on your phone? The CDE-W235BT can stream A2DP and AVRCP music. Not only can it control and stream your music through Bluetooth, it can process your music using its built-in DSP Sound Expansion to ensure you get the best sound you deserve.

Expecting an important text message? The CDE-W235BT can give you a notification on the display with a blinking mail icon indicator for 30 seconds while receiving a text message. The mail icon indicator will remain on if there is an unread message on a connected mobile phone.

*Depending on the mobile phone, this function may not be available.

Steering Wheel Control

If your car has factory Bluetooth steering wheel controls, then it will also control your new CDE-W235BT’s built-in Bluetooth. Or, control your head unit right from your factory installed steering wheel controls by adding a third party adapter. Use popular brand names such as Axxess or PAC to add this feature.

Connect your iPod or iPhone using the USB cable that came with your iPod or iPhone and you've got access to all your music, right from your head unit. Adding the optional heavy-duty, automotive-grade Alpine KCU-445i iPod/iPhone cable is an even better option, since it will stand up to the rigors of in-car use unlike the cable supplied with your iPod or iPhone. With USB you get convenient control so you can scroll through all your Playlists, Artists, Albums, and Songs - and view all your song information right from the head unit display. Enjoy all your music whether from your iPod or iPhone, Alpine brings the music to your car.
