This unit also features Alpine’s exclusive Graphical User Interface with intuitive screen graphics, so it’s easy for you to find your way. Get quick and easy directions from start to finish.

Close Encounters with 3D Maps
The INE-W960 uses an enhanced navigation platform, which includes 3D view. Major landmarks, buildings and terrain details in main metropolitan areas are depicted in 3D, for easier recognition while driving. Freeway exit routes and exit signs are presented in vivid three-dimensional detail, to give you a realistic view of where to go. Other navigation features include a highway services list which shows the services at each exit (Gas, Food, ATMs, etc.); Auto Zoom, which delivers proximity zooming as you approach the next driving maneuver; and the freeform search function, which lets you type in the first letters of the destination using the formal name (ex: Alpine) or a category type (ex: Electronics Company).

Advanced Accuracy with OnPoint™ Plus
The INE-W960 uses Alpine’s OnPoint Plus Advanced GPS Positioning. This ensures that your vehicle stays accurately positioned on the map even in areas where it’s difficult to receive GPS reception, such as in a tunnel or around tall buildings. OnPoint Plus simultaneously uses three technologies – satellite-linked positioning data, gyro sensor technology (to determine the vehicle’s direction) and accelerometer technology (to gauge the vehicle’s speed) – resulting in continuous coverage of the location of your vehicle. As an additional Plus for accuracy, an optional connection for speed pulse connectivity to the vehicle is available. With the use of these packaged technologies OnPoint Plus ensures you’re spot-on while en route.

Let Alpine Lead the Way
With turn-by-turn instructions delivered by Text-to-Speech (TTS) technology, street names, freeway numbers and freeway exit names are announced clearly through your vehicle’s audio system. Directions are available in English, Spanish, or French. With a unique database of 6 million POI’s (Points of Interest), you can choose from a plethora of places to go, whether you’re hungry and looking for a place to eat, or need to fill up at the nearest gas station! Assistive mapping visuals display essential driving information such as One-Way Street icons and Highway Junction View for maneuvering complex interchanges. These extra navigation features help guide you right to your destination!
