Post Alpine users, a remote control question

Hello everyone, I’m a new member and have a quick question. I have an Alpine CDA- 9830 already installed in my truck, Santa is going to bring me a SIR-ALP1 so I tune into Sirius radio. I currently have the regular Alpine remote that works fine for my FM/AM stations. With Sirius offering a 100+ channels I’m thinking that this is going to be a pain hitting the up and down button to go from let’s say channel 25 to channel 70. I have no experience yet so I’m asking current Alpine users if they know of an easier way. I can store 18 channels in memory but I’d still be flipping. I know I can do a search but I like to keep my hands on the wheel.

Alpine also sells the RUE-4190 which allows you to directly punch in channels at will via it's number pad. I’m wondering if it’s worth buying this to. Is anyone using it? If so do you like it?

Thanks

You can't punch in channels on the alpine remote that I have, but you can select the different presets and bands, so when I am surfing for channels that aren't in presets I go to the closest one and then use the channel up down from there. Not a big deal.

Yes and no. 2005 and up Alpine headuntis can support direct access tuning with the RUE-4190. However, your 9830 is older adn does not (sorry). You can use the remote control to cycle to through the bands though.

I would think you could use the track access button and the channels go by really fast so you could find your channels very quickly.

Thanks for the replies! I did a little more digging and found this in my Alpine 9830 manual PDF.

"When using the optional remote control (RUE-4190), an XM
Channel can be directly called up with the numeric keypad of the
remote control."

So it looks like I can use the RUE-4190. Do you guys think it's worth the $50? I guess I want to know if it's a pain flipping thru the channels other than your presets? Let me know.

I dont mean to jack your forum, but I have the alpine 9830 and I dont have the manual. Is there any way to customize the sound, because the only thing I know how to do is change to preset sound settings. I want to change bass and trebel seperately.

You can go to Alpines web site and download it there. It takes a while to get the hang of it but once you figure it out it's pretty simple.
