Alpine's Highly-Anticipated 9-Inch Navigation System for Jeep Wrangler is Now Shipping

Introducing the 9-Inch X409-WRA-JL Weather-Resistant Navigation System with Off-Road Mode. This mech-less (no CD/DVD) in-dash audio/video/navigation (AVN) system is a direct-fit solution for the new 2018 – Up Jeep® Wrangler and 2019 – Up Jeep® Gladiator.

Enhancements to the user interface for faster screen transitions, as well as added features based on industry research, has made the X409-WRA-JL an ideal upgrade for the active weekender looking to enhance their adventures.

The X409-WRA-JL is designed for Plug-and-Play installation and includes a vehicle-specific dash bezel and factory-compatible wiring harness to create a direct-fit solution for the dash and integrated operation in the vehicle, so factory features like the volume knob, steering wheel controls, and HVAC system are retained.

Built to handle the toughest of outdoor conditions, the weather-resistant X409-WRA-JL is rated IP53 for protection against dust and ingress. The dash bezel is precisely fitted to house the screen so no water or dust can enter the electronics assembly. The high-visibility screen delivers cleaner, brighter images even when off-roading on rugged terrain.

As many Jeep® owners enjoy off-road activities like trail rides, the X409-WRA-JL comes equipped with Off-Road Mode with off-road centric vehicle information like vehicle tilt, tire pressure, optimized camera view, and FunTreks trailhead POI database displayed on the large, 9-inch screen. Drivers can revisit their favorite off-road adventures through Off-Road Trip Recording.

The large, 9-inch screen has a WVGA display, Capacitive Touch, and Swipe Graphical User Interface that’s optimized for in-vehicle smartphone use so drivers can access Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ for music, messages, or maps while keeping their eyes on the road. Built-in Bluetooth® is also available for hands-free calling and audio streaming.

Third-party driving maps like Google Maps and Waze are available through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™, or in areas that don’t have strong cellphone service, the X409-WRA-JL comes equipped with built-in navigation with Turn-By-Turn and Pinch-to-Zoom maps of the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico with The Latest Map Guarantee.

The X409-WRA-JL retains the factory rear-view camera with three additional camera inputs that can be assigned as a front or side camera. For multiple camera systems, the KCX-C250MC Multi-Camera Selector (sold separately) allows the camera systems to be easily controlled right from the touchscreen.

Display up to eight accessories directly from the touchscreen by adding the optional KAC-001 External Accessory Controller. Assign graphical icons to the accessories for quick identification and control through a pulsed, latched or momentary output.

Audio entertainment sources include a built-in HD Radio Tuner™, Pandora® via a smartphone, iPod/iPhone® music, various music file formats including FLAC/MP3/WMA/AAC/HE-AAC playback via USB and SiriusXM™ compatibility (tuner and subscription required).

For even more entertainment options, a “Media” center that matches the factory look is added to the lower, right-hand side of the dash with one HDMI input, dual USB for smartphone access (one device at a time) or charging, and an Aux input.

The X409-WRA-JL is available now at Alpine Authorized retails or online at through Crutchfield for $2999.95. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.
