5 Colour Illumination:

To ensure the EZi-DAB integrates seamlessly into any dashboard and look like it was always meant to be there, the control unit has a choice of five different illumination colours; green, amber, red, blue and white.

Forecourt Pause:

Forecourt pause helps you take control of your audio content and not miss a thing – even when you’re listening to digital radio – and has been designed for instances when you need to leave your vehicle and return again in a relatively short space of time, such as when you are visiting a petrol station or cash point. How does it work? When you take the keys out of your vehicle EZi-DAB will still receive power for around 15 minutes. In that period it sits in a “suspended” state (display off), meaning it is powered up but not actually playing any audio (this is best thought of as being like a low power mode: it won’t drain the battery). When you return to your vehicle and restart the ignition (within the 15 minute window), EZi-DAB will immediately switch back on and start playing again in one of the following ways:

  • If you were listening to an iPod track it will resume where it left off (the point when you last heard audio).
  • If you were listening to a digital radio station it will start to play live radio again.

You can also pause the digital radio broadcast for up to 8 minutes, so you can fill up with fuel, go and pay, get back in the car and continue listening where you left off.

Works with USB Devices:

The Alpine EZi-DAB enables you to navigate and listen to tracks from a USB flash drive, mobile phone or MP3 player with USB connection.

Dual Tuner:

The EZi-DAB has a dual tuner so no need to keep re-tuning as you drive.

Discrete Antenna:

To listen to digital radio, a special antenna is required. EZi-DAB uses a small, discreet windscreen film solution, where no cutting or drilling to your vehicle is required.

Picnic Mode:

Picnic mode is perfect for when you have parked in an idyllic country spot and want a bite to eat outside but within range of your vehicle and would like to have some background music. So with the ignition turned off and the keys removed, you throw open the doors and turn EZi-DAB back on and listen to whatever you want to. After an hour EZi-DAB will automatically shut down ensuring that you never drain the battery on your vehicle.
