Technical Details

  • Bluetooth Streaming Audio: You can also listen to streaming audio from your phone or other Bluetooth audio devices through the interface. Some devices with streaming audio functionality also have command and control protocols, allowing you to use the head unit's buttons for play, pause, previous track, and next track commands.
  • Microphone: The supplied microphone allows you to speak to the other party on the telephone call hands-free. The microphone comes with clips and hardware for a variety of mounting options. Microphone dimensions: Diameter: 0.548" , Length: 1.327" , Cable Length: 10'
  • Pairing: Your phone must be paired with the KCE-300BT before it will work. Up to five devices can be paired to the adapter at once; numbered 1-4, plus Guest Mode. The Guest Mode is for temporary pairing; that device is deleted when the ignition is turned off
  • Receiving Calls: When you receive a call, the caller ID information is displayed on the head unit. You can set the phone, or KCE-300BT to answer the call automatically. If you prefer answering manually, it only requires pressing the phone button.
  • iPod: Although the KCE-300BT uses the iPod Full Speed jack on the head unit, a second Full Speed jack on the interface allows connection of your iPod also.

Product Description

Drive safe - talk on the phone hands-free with your compatible Alpine stereo. The KCE-300BT Bluetooth adapter plugs into your 2007-up Bluetooth ready Alpine stereo, using the Full Speed iPod® connection. A handy pass-through connection lets you plug in your iPod, too. You get on-screen displays of most cell phone information, including Caller ID, missed calls, dialed calls, and received calls. You can also access any music stored in your phone, stream it through your Alpine stereo, and check out song info on the display. A one-time process prepares your phone for use with the KCE-300BT. Once the system has been set up, the Bluetooth connection initializes automatically when you get in the car. From there, you get the safety and convenience of a mobile speakerphone. Includes an echo-cancelling microphone. Warranty: 1 year.

I would like to reinforce the others comments as well as put in a few of my own. Unit is completely unreliable. Interface with the head unit is awkward and does not give you caller id when someone calls. Cant tell you how many times I answered the phone and didnt want to talk to that person. Music does stream through the unit but sounds HORRIBLE. Worse than a tape player. Simple, until they get it right STAY AWAY and dont waste your money. Come on Alpine, this one is really hurting your rep.

I bought an Alpine system for my new car, replacing the Kenwood system in my old car. The KCE-300BT sounds terrible (according to everyone I call), and people can't understand what I'm saying. This compares badly to the old Kenwood bluetooth system, with which people I called couldn't even tell I was on a speakerphone. Now everybody is annoyed when I call them from my car, even when not moving. This unit must have the worst noise-cancellation properties of any unit made! I can't believe a company like Alpine even put this unit out.

Now there is the new KCE-350BT, which supposedly has better noise cancellation. I guess it's either try that unit or replace my entire system with a Kenwood system, which would be expensive as I've got Bluetooth, HD Radio, and iPod connected already.

I'm not happy with this unit. You're better off just using a BT headset. Don't get this product.

<update> I now own the 350BT, and am even more disgusted with Alpine! The new unit DOES fix the echo problem, but the sound quality is so bad that nobody can understand what I'm saying, making the new unit even more useless than the old one! And I PAID for it! Shame on me! From now on, I'm going back to Kenwood (when I can afford to dump the Alpine system). I'm so angry with Alpine at this point, that I'll never order another product from them as long as I live. STAY AWAY!
