The ILX-F259’s 9” screen is attached to an adjustable mount connected to a 1-DIN chassis. The screen hovers over or in front of the dash while its rear housing tapers off cleanly at the edges for a thin and modern silhouette. Various mounting positions allow for the screen to be positioned to avoid features on the dash such as air vents and buttons around the radio. Once the desired screen position is determined, the screen and mount get fixed to the chassis for a sturdy fit and finish.
JUST THE TECHNOLOGY YOU NEED
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you access to popular apps such as:
- Waze: The world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app
- Spotify: A digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs
- Amazon Music, and more
The iLX-F259 includes Android Auto and works with the Google Assistant (requires both a USB cable and Bluetooth connection; requires an Android™ phone running 5.0 [Lollipop] or higher and the Android Auto app). To access the Google Assistant on Android Auto, say "OK Google" or select the mic button. Google Assistant in Android Auto allows users to play their favorite music, get driving directions to their destination, interact with smart home devices and reply to text messages – hands free.
ADD A REAR CAMERA, OR MORE, IF NEEDED
Make blind spots a distant memory. The iLX-F309 has a rear camera input and overlays guidelines onto the camera image on the 9" screen to aid with distance judging (camera sold separately). Multiple cameras (for the rear and side) can be added when used through the KCX-C2600B Multi-Camera Selector (cameras and switcher sold separately).
BLUETOOTH HANDS-FREE CALLING AND AUDIO STREAMING
Be smart when using your phone on the road. The built-in Bluetooth wireless technology allows for hands-free calling, secure simple pairing (SSP) and call waiting. Icons depicting phone battery level and cellular signal level are shown on the 9" screen. Expand your entertainment options with audio streaming from your smartphone.
