    New Additions to the ICE setup.

    Well thanks to Alpine for finally getting me the finished products and a big thanks to Car Electronics , my new gear has finally arrived(namely the headunit as the bluetooth has been at CEL for a while now).

    Anyways the new bluetooth phone kit, which does pretty much everything I want it to do, i.e. Phonebook, call ID etc.




    And the new headunit, very much like the old one it replaces but with the ability to have proper phone bluetooth integration. S






    Now I was going to fit tonight but I need to go back to work for a support issue, so fitting will have to wait till tomorrow. I have only just opened them to have a read of the manuals and to check that all the parts are in the boxes. Vitally important mind you as mine is essentially the first customer unit in the UK, the second one will be with another AOC member tomorrow.

    It is going to be fun this weekend when I introduce my new ICE install to a select bunch of ICE nutters like me and then use the RTA to check the setup.

    205 is due only next year in Europe and the 202 will remain very much on the books as Alpine acknowledges that not everyone want the slot in Blackbird. Oh and the Blackbird 2 is out which slots into the W205. I had the Blackbird 2 last week to have a play with. It is getting very slick and is quite an improvement on the current one even though that will stay on the catalogue when the new one comes out. Obiviusly Ver.1 will get the software upgrade.

    The protoype W205 I get to have a gander with mid June so we will see how it shapes up with. Essentially a W202 but with the built in slot even the Manuals between the W202 and the W205 is shared.

    Oh and before I forget it set me back nothingas it was a straight swap for my W200 and the Bluetooth kit was a favour for some work carried out last year as will be the Display interface when they sort the issues. Retail is around £550 to £650

    Dave if you really want one, pm me.
