The maps feature on the Alpine iLX-007 allows you to use your phone in the same way people use their factory integrated GPS radios. The difference is you now have voice prompts, traffic updates, 3-d views and zooming features from your phone with a software you know and understand. We simply had to create a alpine iLX-007 Review to explain the awesomeness of this stereo.

Alpine ILX-007 Review – Installation note:
There are two things that can be some what of a nuisance when using the Alpine iLX-007. The first would be that you have to engage the parking brake to use any of the settings on this radio be it the EQ or the or any other settings under the settings menu.
I literally had to engage the parking brake in order to set the clock to the correct time after I installed this unit. The second thing I would like you to know that most companies don’t explain clearly is that this is a digital media receiver and is not a CD player!
