BT Plus, Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling & Audio Streaming

BT PlusDon’t fumble 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. The perfect way to stay safe and still carry conversations or stream music in the car is with the use of a hands-free device. Get the convenience of both with the IVE-W555BT! This unit is equipped with Bluetooth® wireless technology so there is no need for any additional adapters. The IVE-W555BT comes with a tuned microphone that’s engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. Place the microphone where it’s convenient for you, such as on the visor, for the best possible sound quality. Other convenient features include secure simple pairing (SSP), call waiting, and icons for phone battery and cellular signal level.


Microphone Included

Microphone IncludedThis unit comes with all that’s needed for Bluetooth convenience. The IVE-W555BT comes with a separate microphone which allows for optimal placement in your car and the best possible sound quality. The specially-tuned microphone is engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback.


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 set up presets with your four favorite phone contacts in the IVE-W535HD for quick one-touch access.


Get the Best Sound with 24-Bit DAC

For unrivaled sound quality, expect nothing less than the best. The IVE-W555BT uses a 24-Bit DAC for ultimate sound quality with all your digital media sources.

Super-Fast USB Connection

The IVE-W555BT uses a USB connection for newer iPods that provides ultra-fast digital data transfer so songs and video are loaded instantly through the receiver, on-screen. Thanks to USB, you can also alternatively plug in a USB thumb-drive loaded with music, instead of your iPod or iPhone.

For the front of the vehicle connect the HCE-C212F. Rear view camera options include the HCE-C155, HCE-C125, and HCE-C104.These camera systems will work directly with the IVE-W555BT for a clean and easy install.

For a complete driving experience, nothing beats adding Alpine’s Active View™ Camera System. The HCE-C305R Active View camera alerts you to moving objects that approach your car while you’re backing up with an audible “beep” and a visual highlight of the moving object right on the IVE-W555BT’s screen. With the Active View system, avoiding other cars, pedestrians or animals behind your car is easy!
