WIRELESS CarPlay and Android Auto!
Wireless is simply better
By now, you have come to appreciate the convenience and entertainment CarPlay and Android Auto bring to your motoring life, which has also been a focal point of many of ATOTO's head units. All you need to do is plug your phone in. So, what if we take it to the next level? With F7G1A8XE-N, you can enjoy wireless CarPlay and wireless Android Auto in your vehicle! No more worries about where to put your plugged phone. No more search for a holder which you find to be superfluous anyway. No more entangled cords to distract you. Free at last!
F7 XE-A supports running CarPlay or Android Auto map navigation while playing FM/AM radio/USB music in the background. Be aware that not all head units can do this!
Note: If you choose to use wired CarPlay or wired Android Auto, to save battery, for instance, factory/original USB cables are required for Android Auto / CarPlay / AutoLink connection. Non-manufacturer made USB cables may easily cause connection issues, such as black screen after minutes of playback, connection failure or unstable phone connection.
CarPlay makes driving smarter
You can use all your essential iPhone functions on the road, with CarPlay. Once connected, you will see a familiar interface displayed clearly on the screen of the head unit. Tap the icons to take calls, check voicemails and text messages, pull out maps, and of course, listen to your favorite songs using iTunes, Apple Music.
You can also control everything using voice commands to Siri. Dictate text messages, make phone calls, control music playback, or get directions without ever taking your eyes off the road.
Important: Wired CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or later models with iOS 7.1 or higher. Wireless CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or later models with iOS 9.0 or higher.
Android Auto gives you all the help you need
Journeys are easier and safer with Android Auto. Connect your Android phone to get traffic information, lane guidance, and real-time navigation assistance from Google maps. You can even send text messages, take calls, or check your voicemails through the simple interface.
Android Auto also includes the outstanding voice-recognition technology, so you can control everything just by speaking. Get directions, send messages, make calls, and play music while keeping your hands safely on the wheel.
Important: Wired Android Auto is compatible with phones with Android 6.0 or higher. Wireless Android Auto projection is compatible with any phone with Android 11.0, a Google or Samsung phone with Android 10.0 (Google Pixel 4, Samsung Note 9, Samsung Note 20, and Samsung S 10 have been tested to be compatible with wireless Android Auto on F7 XE-A), and selected Samsung phones with Android 9.0 (Samsung S8 and Note 8 have been tested to be compatible with wireless Android Auto on F7 XE-A).
178° full-viewing angle 1280 * 720 IPS display screen, outstanding viewing experience
The IPS display technology is known for its excellent color rendition as well as retaining the naturalness of colors.
Coming with a 1280 * 720 IPS display screen with a 178° full-viewing angle, F7 XE-A offers a much better viewing experience in brightly lit areas. In addition, important app tips such as navigation prompts can be viewed more clearly.
AutoLink (MirrorLink) allows you to cast what's displayed on your smartphone to F7's big screen
You can run online GPS navigation apps (Google Maps, Waze, Tomtom, etc.) or play videos on Youtube, etc. on F7G1A8XE-N's 8-inch screen. AutoLink is compatible with the latest Android & iOS smartphone models.
Considering that neither CarPlay nor Andriod Auto is compatible with video apps such as YouTube, AutoLink provides an alternative option. Important: Some video streaming services (Netflix, AMZ Prime, Disney +, etc.) do not support MirrorLink.
With very few smartphones with a curved screen, there will be a tiny black area on the 4 edges of F7 XE-A's screen. This is caused by differences in firmware and the layout of the curved screen.
HD 720P rearview video display with Live Rear-View (LRV) feature
Typically, head units can only process and display 480-600 lines CVBS rearview video signals. F7 XE-A displays HD 720P rearview videos (ATOTO AC-HD02LR rearview camera is required, sold separately). Say goodbye to snowy static pictures when reversing your vehicle.
Live Rear-View (LRV) - Now you can access the rear view even if your vehicle in moving ahead. This frees you from obstructions of passengers, headrests and the vehicle's roof and rear pillars, increasing the field of view and offering the driver a clear view of the lanes behind and common blind-spots. You can set one of the steering wheel keys as a shortcut for quick access.
It is easy to control/operate your ATOTO F7!
While driving, reaching over and trying to operate the head unit can be distracting. F7 XE-A makes it possible to map 18 frequently-used functions to factory steering wheel audio keys for convenient operation. For vehicles without steering wheel audio controls, ATOTO AC-44F5 wireless IR remote is highly recommended. It does not, however, support key mapping (refer to its manual for details).
You can wake up Siri or Google Assistant by voice command, by pressing the physical key on F7 XE-A, or by pressing the corresponding button on your steering wheel (if applicable) or on AC-44F5.
