Infotainment and Sound Solutions for Volkswagen
When we at Alpine decided to develop a high-end infotainment system for Golf 7 drivers, we had only one goal in mind: to create a high-end system that exceeds all available media products for the Golf 7 available to date. The result is a premium infotainment system with a brilliant 9-inch touch screen that perfectly integrates into the Golf 7 to bring the latest media compatibility, cutting-edge navigation technology and audiophile sound quality to your vehicle. All components are designed to fit perfectly in existing installation locations and integrate fully with the vehicle’s electronic systems.
Perfect vehicle integration with premium components.
Performance without compromise.
Welcome to Alpine Style.
Turn your dashboard into a high-end cinematic experience: the highlight of the Alpine system is the high-resolution 9-inch touch screen – the largest screen for a Volkswagen dashboard to date. In fact, it is more than twice as large than the standard 6.5-inch VW screen. This extra-large size display will amaze you by its brilliant, high-resolution image quality – you must see it to believe it.
Made for you.
The X901D-G7 Alpine Style system is surely one of the coolest upgrades you can buy for your Golf. It will guide you to your desired destination, keep you entertained with the latest media in perfect sound quality and assist you with narrow parking spots.
Made for your Golf 7.
Steering Wheel Control Buttons
The Alpine system is connected to your steering wheel control buttons. This means you do not lose this convenient feature when upgrading to Alpine and you will have full control over volume, phone, audio track forward/backward and many other commands. You can even activate Siri voice control if you have an iPhone connected to the system – right from your steering wheel.
Driver Information Display
The small display in the instrument cluster is also connected to the Alpine system and can display radio station names, song titles and artist information, caller names, navigation turn-by-turn arrows and much more.
*Navigation turn-by-turn arrows available after software update in Spring 2016
If your car is equipped with original parking sensors, you will not lose this convenient feature when upgrading to Alpine. The parking sensor system is connected to your Alpine screen, showing a convenient distance display and providing proximity sounds with automatic mute of the music when parking your car.
Rear View Camera
If your Golf has the original VW reversing camera installed it can be simply connected to the Alpine system as well. The camera activates automatically when reversing. If your car is not equipped with the original reversing camera we recommend upgrading with this useful feature.
Vehicle System Setup
The VW radio display is used to show and set up vehicle settings and display warning messages such as low engine oil level. The Alpine system is fully compatible with the Golf 7’s electronic systems and can therefore display all menus and warnings (except original traffic sign recognition system).
Big Screen Entertainment
The Alpine system allows you to enjoy movies, music videos or TV shows from many different sources, such as DVDs from the optional optical drive, USB sticks, the latest smartphones with HDMI output or portable video devices (optional cables or adapters are required). You can also connect your iPod or iPhone to enjoy your video content on the high-resolution 9-inch display. For driving safety, the video playback feature is only available if the vehicle is not in motion.
Your personal Media Expert
Built-in Bluetooth Technology
The built-in Bluetooth® module allows wireless connection of a mobile phone for handsfree communication, while frequent software updates ensure full compatibility with the latest phones. A very intuitive user interface makes operation extremely easy. Bluetooth® also enables audio streaming from the phone: audio content or even internet radio can be wirelessly enjoyed on the Alpine system.
Connect Your Smartphone
The Alpine system is fully compatible with the latest smartphones such as the iPhone 6S and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. This offers many advantages: you can enjoy digital content stored on your phone such as music or video files, access your phonebook or simply charge your phone. You can even activate Siri and voice-control your iPhone for maximum comfort and driving safety.
DAB Digital Radio
The built-in DAB/DAB+/DMB tuner uses the most advanced digital technology to deliver radio reception with outstanding, noise-free sound quality. DAB also offers many other advantages over traditional FM radio: choose from a much wider range of radio stations and after the initial station scan easily select your desired channels from an alphabetic or genre list of available stations.
Optional DVD Player
Upgrade your Alpine Infotainment system with DVD and CD playback capability. The DVE-5300G fits per fectly in the Golf 7’s original VW CD drive compartment in the glove box. It uses HDMI technology for stunning image quality and can be fully controlled from the touch screen. An additional installation kit is required. All installation parts are included.
The party starts in your Golf
The X901D-G7 offers extensive sound adjustment options to get the best out of your Golf sound system and to adjust the sound to your taste and preferences. The built-in Dual 9-band Parametric EQ allows separate adjustment for the front and rear channels with professional detail.
10 pre-defined EQ settings allow for fast changing to different sound modes, such as Rock, Pop and Jazz.
The digital crossover allows you to adjust cutoff frequencies for your speakers. This ensures a matching sound signal that can be accepted by your speakers without distortion.
Fader and Balance
Use the touch screen to drag the crosshair to the desired location on the car interior image to make fader and balance adjustments.
Digital Time Correction
Time Correction allows you to virtually adjust the distance of each speaker by delaying the signals of speakers closest to you. This gives the impression of listening from a central position.

Navigation maps with stunning details on the high resolution
9-inch touch screen
High Resolution Touch Screen
Use the virtual keyboard to input destination addresses and operate all navigation settings. You can input postal codes for all European countries, which makes searching for addresses quicker. The system even reads partial addresses and you can select your own language from 33 different keyboards.
View maps in 3D with detailed buildings and landmarks. This feature helps you to better orientate yourself in large cities. Speed restriction display and speed camera warnings (not available for all EU countries) give you further driving assistance.

Alpine’s innovative “One Look” split-screen technology allows you to view the navigation map and audio playback information at one glance. This eliminates the need to switch between different applications. You can switch from full screen to One Look view with just a swipe on the display.
Plan Your Route
Thanks to TMC you are able to get live traffic updates – this is even very convenient before you start driving. Zoom out to see the full route you are about to drive and check the road conditions. Accidents, traffic jams and any kind of traffic problems are displayed with warning icons on the map, and roads with slow or stopped traffic are displayed in different colours. This allows you to better plan your route.
Lane Guidance / TMC Route Guidance
Lane Guidance lets the driver know which is the best lane to be in, while Dynamic TMC Route Guidance provides live traffic information for avoiding traffic jams and recalculates the route if necessary.
Points of Interest
You can easily search for POIs by category, name, distance and other criteria. This is very helpful when looking for a specific restaurant franchise or a specific petrol station brand nearby. Restaurant information includes the phone number next to the address and food type – with a quick tap on the screen you can call ahead and reserve a table.

Steering Wheel Remote Control Interface with Vehicle Display Output
In some vehicles, removing the factory head unit causes the parking sensor and climate control displays to disappear. By using the APF-D200VW, they both appear in the multi-function display in the instrument cluster. It works with all VWs that have white colour displays.
CAN to Video converter for VW Platform
On some models, when the factory head unit is removed and replaced with the Alpine monitor, you lose the parking sensor and climate control displays on the screen. With this interface, you retain this visual information. It also includes a steering wheel remote control and vehicle display interface.
