The Alpine IVA-W205 is an in-dash unit labeled by Alpine as an "affordable yet powerful" media station. While it does feature full support with a separate docking station that includes GPS navigation technology, the focus of the Alpine IVA-W205 is on comprehensive multimedia functions. The Alpine IVA-W205 device includes a wide range of media functionality including iPod connection support, Bluetooth and cell phone device support, High Definition radio support, Satellite radio support, and of course universal compact disc and DVD support.
