About the Alpine X409-WRA-JL
Built for your JL
This all-weather, feature-packed Alpine X409-WRA-JL digital multimedia receiver brings awesome smartphone connectivity and quality sound to your 2018-up Jeep Wrangler JL or 2020-up Jeep Gladiator. With a 9″ diagonal display, built-in Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capability, HD Radio™, and plenty of inputs, Alpine built this weather-resistant receiver to be a perfect match for your Wrangler’s dash and your lifestyle.
Alpine thought of it all
Alpine packages a dash kit that replaces the section of your dash and houses the receiver, along with wiring adapters that plug directly into the factory electronics and wiring. The dash kit includes custom keys that match the style of your factory keys, and it also lets you keep your climate controls. Big buttons at the bottom of the 9″ low-reflection display offer easy access to commonly used functions without going through menu screens.
Alpine even includes an iDatalink module that allows you to keep your steering wheel audio controls and the Jeep Uconnect® features you love.
Ready for whatever
Your Jeep is designed for off-road use, and so is this receiver. The bezel and touchscreen are splash-proof and dust-proof, so you can drop the top and head into the wilderness without worrying about your receiver succumbing to the elements.
The best smartphone options
iPhone® or Android™, the Alpine shows you the best of your phone:
Android Auto: If you connect an Android device, Android Auto integrates the Android platform into your driving experience in a non-distracting way. You’ll have voice control access to Google Maps, weather, music, your phone, text messages, plus easy access to many of your favorite apps
Apple CarPlay: CarPlay integrates your iPhone® into the driving experience, putting iPhone content at the driver’s voice command with minimal distraction. That means easy access to your music library, your phone, messages, navigation, and many third-party streaming music apps, too.
Gotta have HD Radio
The X409-WRA-JL comes ready to play with great entertainment options:
• HD Radio reception: Enjoy crystal-clear sound quality from participating AM and FM stations, including FM that sounds almost as good as a CD. Plus, you’ll see station and song info on the screen.
• Satellite radio compatibility: You can add SiriusXM programming to the receiver with an optional tuner and a subscription.
The X409-WRA-JL also features an MHL-compatible HDMI input, allowing you to connect most compatible Android smartphones and devices. With the correct HDMI cable connected, you’ll be able to view video content from your phone or a portable Blu-ray Disc™ player on the Alpine’s screen while parked.
Built-in Bluetooth allows you to use the X409-WRA-JL for hands-free calling and music streaming through your smartphone. Alpine includes an external microphone for a crystal-clear conversations.
The X409-WRA-JL comes with a GPS antenna and preloaded map data of the United States and Canada for reliable navigation from the Keys of Florida to Kaktovik in Alaska. HERE’s map database also provides approximately 6 million points-of-interest.
Use your Jeep’s coolest features
Alpine’s optional Truck Accessory Controller enables simple system expansion, allowing touchscreen command of up to eight electrical devices like winches, LED lights, interior lights, suspension kits, tire inflators, and differential locks. You can customize the onscreen icons and button labels, so you’ll be able to access your devices with ease.
Add multiple views
Alpine includes a harness to incorporate your factory backup cam but also gives you adapters to use up to three more aftermarket cameras (not included) for left, right, and front mounting. Perfect for treacherous off-roading!
Tune it like you want it
With Alpine’s TuneIt app, you can make the changes to the equalizer, crossover, and time correction. You can then share your system and settings with other TuneIt users, and see what they’ve done as well.
iDatalink Maestro included
The X409-WRA-JL offers compatibility you won’t find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module. You’ll keep your steering wheel audio controls, your factory amp, safety warning chimes, and Uconnect®, if present. The iDatalink adapter also lets you tap into your Jeep’s diagnostic port, so you can check out expanded functionality including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure monitor on the Alpine’s screen.
