View Full Version : SIR-ALP1 compatibility with 2007/8 Alpine Head Units

After considering more extreme options ( changing out my Alpine CDA-9835 head unit soon ), I've decided to stay with Alpine due mostly to budgets ( other hobbies are demanding to be fed too ), needs, and simplicity.

I've narrowed the search down to the CDA-9886 or 9887 ( decision will depend upon the pricing for the imprint module for the 9886 when it comes out... I do hope to use USB, and it appears the 9886 can drive a portable 2.5 inch hard drive ).

I'm trying to determine if my current SIR-ALP1 Sirius tuner will work with the above head units, or if I will have to purchase yet another Sirius tuner (PNP ). My Sirius subsription is due on Feb 7, 2007, so I'd like to avoid the hassle of a subscription transfer if possible. Thx

Thanks :) I assumed it would but nowadays it's so often that new stuff requires even more new stuff. I was actually considering going to a double DIN touchscreen setup but after seeing the customization required to make it fit in my 2000 Passat dash, etc etc, the final cost was going to become " not worth it for me ". Keeping things simple makes the head unit swap a whole lot easier. Thx
