TuneIt and Share It
Now in its second generation, new features added to TuneIt® 2.0 include increased vehicle choices for easier profile set-up, an expanded database of Alpine speakers and subwoofers for more precise sound system tuning and Bass Engine SQ tuning to tailor the in-vehicle bass characteristics.
Bass Engine SQ: Bring Balance to Your Music
Use the Bass button on the faceplate or the TuneIt app to get the best tonal balance and efficient power distribution to all (front, rear, and sub) speakers independently. Bass Engine SQ tuning provides tonal balance by automatically adjusting different combinations of EQ, Sub Level and Crossover settings through the choice of five bass profiles (Standard, Punch, Rich, Mid Bass, Low Bass).
BT Plus, Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling & Audio Streaming
Easy Audio Streaming, Even with iPhone iOS 8
Do you have a large music library on your phone? The CDE-164BT can stream and control your phone’s music via Bluetooth. Want to listen to your iPhone without plugging-in? Stream your music via Bluetooth. Whether you have music on your iPhone locally, on iTunes Match or select third-party audio apps, the CDE-164BT can stream your tunes!
This unit comes with all that’s needed for Bluetooth convenience. The CDE-164BT comes with a tuned microphone that’s engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. This allows optimal placement in your car, for the best possible sound quality.
Making, Taking Calls & Call Waiting
Making and taking phone calls has never been more convenient. 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 mute for music is deactivated. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music enjoyable and convenient. You can even use the CDE-164BT’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-164BT’s mic gain, phone output and ringtone volume. If that’s not enough, there are five sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.
Steering Wheel Control
If your car has factory Bluetooth steering wheel controls, then it will also control your new CDE-164BT’s built-in Bluetooth. Or, control your head unit right from your factory installed steering wheel controls by adding a third party adapter. Use an adapter from popular brand names such as Axxess or PAC to add this feature.
Front Aux Input
With a dedicated USB input and USB cable, you can even connect USB memory devices like thumbdrives. Song lists on USB devices are displayed in alphabetical order, and allows eight levels of file / folder search capabilities. This unit will find music files while ignoring other file types on the USB device.
Note: MP3 device or cell phone cannot be independently controlled through the head unit.
Made for iPod® and iPhone®
Find it Fast with Quick Search and Alphabet Search
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. With Quick Search 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! With so many ways to listen to thousands of songs, now you can get super-fast access to Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre and Composer.
App Direct Mode
Listen to even more music from your iPhone or iPod with App Direct Mode. This new feature offers basic app control (Play, Pause, Track Forward, Track Back) and displays metadata directly on the head unit from numerous third-party apps so that you can enjoy your drive even more and expand your listening choices without fumbling with your phone.
