Your pride-and-joy vehicle's no place for a regular old touchscreen receiver. Alpine's X308U navigation receiver sports an 8" display, so you can get the big picture of your maps and album artwork while you're driving (and enjoying video while you're parked). You can enjoy tunes from a USB source or your smartphone, thanks to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. Built-in navigation ensures you'll be able to find your destination even when you're out of cell range, and you get the usual array of sonic upgrades and other goodies from Alpine, to boot.

A bigger screen, but will it fit?

Since there's no disc player, the X308U's chassis is smaller than most comparable touchscreen navigators. It's likely to fit in more vehicles, and you'll have more room for wires, adapters, and other necessities behind the receiver in your dash opening. Alpine makes Restyle dash kits and wiring harnesses for a number of vehicles, including cars, trucks, and SUVs. If you can't find a dash kit for your vehicle, custom fabrication is always an option for experienced installers.

Works with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

The X308U's compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you and your passengers can enjoy messaging, mapping, tune selection, and much more from your smartphone without touching any screens. Both platforms work with voice commands, which you can activate by speaking a keyword or pressing the dedicated "Voice" button on the stereo's bezel. You can get stuff done without being distracted by your phone. Get more info at and

Improved user interface

Alpine had a real winner on their hands with 2017's X208U 8" navigation receiver, but they've found a way to make things even easier on drivers with this car stereo. The response time to commands is much quicker, so you're never behind the action. And the user interface's upgraded to get you to your preferred display even faster, so you don't feel like you're wasting time.

Four-way swipe control lets you immediately pull up navigation, Bluetooth®, entertainment sources, or settings, while dedicated hard keys also help you find the right screen with ease. And the X308U's capacitive 8" touchscreen gives you pinch-to-zoom command of your maps and other screens, so you're able to get the best view.

Mapping you can rely on

Take a trip nearly anywhere in the U.S. or Canada, and you'll enjoy detailed road maps and over six million included points of interest. You'll also have time-saving assistants like lane guidance, realistic views of complicated interchanges, and 3D representations of buildings, landmarks, and terrain to help keep you on the correct course. You'll even receive real-time traffic reports in most metropolitan areas for as long as you own the Alpine, at no additional cost.

Works with Alpine Go! from your smartphone

Say you're browsing your phone while at the office and you come across a great new restaurant you want to check out. You save the location on your phone's Google Maps app, but when it's time to get into your car, do you want to go through the trouble of searching for it again on your receiver? The free Alpine Go! app sends saved locations from your phone right to the X308U, so you can have all your favorite spots loaded and ready to go before you hit the road.

Get to your favorite functions in a jiffy

The receiver's "Favorites" button gives you quick access to features you use frequently, like contacts, radio station frequencies, sound settings, and destination searches — anything you'll want to pull up rapidly, including beloved CarPlay and Android Auto functions. One touch adds your choice directly to the favorites menu. Your favorites are tied to your phone's Bluetooth profile, so the X308U recalls your favorites automatically when you get into your vehicle. When the stereo detects two users at the same time, it can offer split-screen access to both users' favorites, so either user can gain control of the action lickety-split.

HD Radio™, Pandora® Internet radio, and more

The X308U offers a wide variety of entertainment options, even without a disc player:

  • HD Radio reception: You'll 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.
  • Pandora Internet radio and iPhone and iPod® control: Easy on-screen control through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and you can also control Pandora through Bluetooth with your Android device if your device isn't connected.
  • Satellite radio compatibility: You can add SiriusXM programming to the receiver with an optional tuner and your paid subscription.
