Alpine Electronics will sell a standalone console featuring Apple’s CarPlay system this fall, Nikkei Asian Review reports. It will be the first aftermarket CarPlay product. The system will be available first in the U.S. and Europe and will “likely cost around $500 to $700.” It’s noted that the screen will “likely” be seven inches, and connect to an iPhone 5 or later with a wire. Previously, it’s been reported that other manufacturers — Pioneer and Mercedes — have been working on their own aftermarket CarPlay solutions, but Alpine’s system is the first with a reported release date and price.
