Information About This Item
The Sony XAV-AX100 receiver was designed to be an extension of your smartphone, bringing all the functionality and convenience into your vehicle thanks to Apple Carplay and Android Auto apps.
The XAV-AX100 receiver works with your smartphone to give you convenient hands-free control and high-quality sound. It features both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can control your favorite features with simple voice commands, as well as receive spoken directions as you drive. And it automatically detects the phone you're using, so you won't have to mess with the menus.
With built-in Bluetooth connectivity, this smartphone receiver creates a wireless link between your mobile device and your car's audio system, allowing you to stream the music and podcasts you love. With a compatible iPhone, you can use your voice to control Siri Eyes Free through the receiver. You'll be able to control music, maps, calls, and messages just by talking to Siri. When Siri talks back, you'll hear the response through the car's speakers.
Android users will love this Sony too. You can use voice commands to dictate messages, answer important calls, or use Google Maps to get directions. You can even control music playback with voice control.
A powerful amp brings depth and dynamics to your music collection. The rich, full sound will even make factory speakers sound better, so imagine the improvement you'll hear when you add aftermarket models to your car or truck. Sony's Mega Bass ensures that you'll hear the thump you expect from your favorite tunes.
You can adjust the 10-band equalizer to optimize the acoustics in your vehicle, or quickly access the preset tone curves to get the sound you want. You can even improve the soundstage by creating "virtual speakers" on your dashboard with the Dynamic Stage Organizer.
Distracted driving is a bad thing, so Sony designed this receiver to keep you in touch with your entertainment while you keep your eyes on the road. You use the conveniently located rotary dial to control the volume, or push the knob in to access the receiver's extensive sound control menus. You'll hold that same button to use voice commands for your smartphone.
Whatever you're doing, the big 6.4" color touchscreen looks great and gives you fast, fingertip control over your favorite onscreen functions. All in all, the look and feel of this receiver is really impressive.
Add a backup camera
Rear-view cameras are getting more popular all the time, and the XAV-AX100 comes with a dedicated rear camera input. Customizable guide lines on the screen will help you back up with confidence, even if you're piloting a large 4WD.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more at sony.com.au

Really good unit. Functionality-wise, couldn't be happier. I have a 2008 VW Golf GTS TDI and it sits in the car perfectly.
My only issue with the system itself is the dimming functions seem a bit too sensitive, and the ability to customise things like font size and stuff isn't there (it was an option on my last Sony system) but otherwise, great unit and very happy.
Worth spending a little bit more

Was originally only after a basic car stereo with Bluetooth but the guy at the store convinced me to spend a bit more for the extra features... So glad I did as I don't know what I would do without Apple Carplay now
Fast and easy to use.
