Built-in Bluetooth Technology

Bluetooth

Don’t fuss or fiddle 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 in the car is with the use of a hands-free device. Get the convenience of both in the CDE-136BT! The CDE-136BT is equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology so there is no need for any additional adapters.

Powered by Parrot®

The CDE-136BT is powered by Parrot, the global leader in wireless devices for mobile phones, for expanded compatibility for many Bluetooth wireless technology enabled cell phones. Check with your local authorized Alpine retailer for phone compatibility.

Microphone Included

Microphone IncludedThis unit comes with all that’s needed for Bluetooth convenience. The CDE-136BT 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.

How it Works

Now, make and take phone calls conveniently. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Call waiting allows you to manage two phone calls at the same time. View caller information including caller ID, missed, dialed, and received calls right from the head unit display. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. Once the call is finished, the music plays again. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music an enjoyable, convenient driving experience. You can even use the CDE-136BT’s preset buttons to quickly jump through your phone book, making navigation through large phone books much faster.

Audio Streaming

Do you have a large music library on your phone? The CDE-136BT can stream and control music via the built-in A2DP and AVRCP protocol. This allows you to stream and control your favorite music from any Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, whether it’s from a music app or from the music stored in your phone’s memory.

Software Update

Improve Bluetooth® compatibility with your Apple iOS 6.0 (or later) smartphone and enable audio streaming control with song information display. Download the latest software here.

Simple Plug-in with Front USB Port and Front Aux Input

USB

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 can only be independently controlled through the head unit when using the USB connection, not with the AUX connection.

Built for Top-Quality Sound System Building

The CDE-136BT comes equipped with 3 pairs of RCA pre-amp outputs, one pair each for the front, rear, and subwoofer channels. This allows virtually unlimited system upgrade opportunities, allowing you to add multiple amplifiers, speakers, and subwoofers to create your ideal in-car sound experience.

Built-in Equalizer

Select from 10 different EQ modes to get the best sound from all your sources. (Flat/Pops/Rock/News/Jazz/Elec Dance/Hip Hop/Easy Lis/Country/Classical). If the Equalizer presets aren’t enough for your listening taste, there’s a 3-Band Parametric Equalizer you can adjust and save as a user preset for a better sound response curve. The setting – Bass, Mid and Treble- can be adjusted in the 3-Band Parametric mode.

Plug in an iPod® or iPhone®

Made for iPod / Works with iPhone

The CDE-136BT is more than just a CD player, it is designed to work with your iPod or iPhone - so you can enjoy all your favorites wherever the road takes you.

Adding the optional heavy-duty, automotive-grade Alpine KCU-445i iPod/iPhone cable is an even better option, since it will stand up to the rigors of in-car use unlike the cable supplied with your iPod or iPhone. With USB you get convenient control so you can scroll through all your Playlists, Artists, Albums, and Songs - and view all your song information right from the head unit display. Enjoy all your music whether from your iPod or iPhone, Alpine brings the music to your car.

iPod/iPhone Passenger Control

Friends managing music in your car earning the coveted passenger seat just got easier. The CDE-136BT has a “Passenger Control Mode” that gives the passenger control of the tunes directly from the iPod’s or iPhone’s menu. The driver still has play/pause, track up/down, and volume control right from the CDE-136BT’s faceplate. When the driver wants to take control again, a 1 second press of the volume knob switches the control from the iPod back to the CDE-136BT’s menu.

Quick Search

Have tons of music? Find it fast! With Alpine’s exclusive QuickSearch technology, you'll be able to find what you want, the quickest and easiest way possible. With so many ways to listen to thousands of songs, now you can get super-fast access to artists, songs, albums, playlists, and radio stations. Large control buttons and a rotary encoder make it easy to scroll through all your sources, including your iPod, Radio stations and CD's. No interruptions, while you search, just let the Alpine play.

Percentage Search

For especially big music libraries, Percentage Search function uses the preset buttons for quick jumps to specific parts of the list. Save yourself from scrolling through each song one by one, when you can just jump to a segment of your library with a touch of a button.

Charge your iPhone

Standard in-vehicle solutions may drain the battery of your iPhone, but with the CDE-136BT, your iPhone charges via the USB cable, so you can enjoy nonstop music and recharge your iPhone at the same time.

Steering Wheel Control

If your car has factory Bluetooth steering wheel controls, then it will also control your new CDE-136BT’s built-in Bluetooth. Or, control your head unit right from your factory installed steering wheel controls by adding a third party adapter. Ask your authorized Alpine retailer about how you can retain your steering wheel controls with the CDE-136BT.
