Alpine to sell console for Apple's in-car infotainment system

A Ferrari FF with CarPlay onboard debuted at the Geneva International Motor Show last month.

TOKYO -- Alpine Electronics will start selling this fall a stand-alone console supporting Apple's newly announced CarPlay system, which allows drivers to view maps, listen to music and conveniently access other iPhone functions.

     While a slew of carmakers will soon start offering vehicles that come standard with a CarPlay interface built in, the Japanese company's device is to be the first aftermarket product compatible with the system. It will first be available in the U.S. and Europe and likely cost around $500 to $700.
