The ILX-F259’s 9” screen is attached to an adjustable mount connected to a 1-DIN chassis. The screen hovers over or in front of the dash while its rear housing tapers off cleanly at the edges for a thin and modern silhouette. Various mounting positions allow for the screen to be positioned to avoid features on the dash such as air vents and buttons around the radio. Once the desired screen position is determined, the screen and mount get fixed to the chassis for a sturdy fit and finish.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR SCREEN
The iLX-F259 has a customizable user interface so you can design your screens the way you like. Create up to three customized home screens by choosing from 22 widgets – including Clock, USB images, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, “Now Playing,” Sources, Camera, and Bluetooth functions – that can be easily dragged-and-dropped onto the page. Personalize the screen’s wallpaper by using one of your own photos or choose from several pre-loaded patterns.
The iLX-F259 works with Apple CarPlay and lets iPhone users make and receive calls, access text messages, play music, and get directions in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay is accessed through the capacitive touch screen or the mic button to activate Siri voice control and is compatible with iPhone 5 and later (iPhone must be connected via Apple lightning cable).
The iLX-F259 includes Android Auto and works with the Google Assistant (requires both a USB cable and Bluetooth connection; requires an Android™ phone running 5.0 [Lollipop] or higher and the Android Auto app). Google Assistant in Android Auto allows users to play their favorite music, get driving directions to their destination, interact with smart home devices and reply to text messages – hands free.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you access to popular apps such as:
Waze: (via Android Auto only) The world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app
Spotify: A digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs
Amazon Music, and more

ADD A REAR CAMERA, OR MORE, IF NEEDED
Make blind spots a distant memory. The iLX-F259 has a rear camera input and overlays guidelines onto the camera image on the 9-inch screen to aid with distance judging (camera sold separately). Multiple cameras (for the rear and side) can be added when used through the KCX-C2600B Multi-Camera Selector (cameras and switcher sold separately).
bluetooth hands-free calling & audio streaming
Be smart when using your phone on the road. The built-in Bluetooth wireless technology allows for hands-free calling, secure simple pairing (SSP) and call waiting. Icons depicting phone battery level and cellular signal level are shown on the 9” screen. Expand your entertainment options with audio streaming from your smartphone.
