Hear music your way
Multiple customization options let you adapt the audio experience to your liking. And with the built-in 4 x 55 W amplification, music sounds clear even at high volumes.
Powerful, clear amplification
Advanced signal processing from the 4 x 55 W Dynamic Reality Amp 2 removes interference, so music sounds clear and detailed, even when you crank up the volume.
Music that jumps from your dashboard
Sound waves are directional, so if your speakers are in your doors or under your dash, the audio may seem muddy or unclear. Dynamic Stage Organizer adjusts the signal, improving the stereo positioning so music sounds like it’s coming from the dashboard.
Sculpt your sound
Tailor the sound to your personal preference with the 10-band graphic equalizer.
Build your own sound system
Sony's head unit with high voltage pre-out gives a strong 5-volt signal that provides clearer sound for optimal connection to external power amplifiers.
With the Quick Wake-up feature, you're ready to go right after turning on the ignition.
Have a rear camera installed? Then you can view its feed through the screen, along with customizable guidelines to help you reverse safely.
Easy installation, with a compact rear chassis
Despite its double-DIN display, the rear chassis is far smaller than conventional double-DIN units. This makes for much easier installation, and leaves plenty of room for cabling and other accessories in the space behind the display.
Enjoy smartphone connectivity enhanced with screen mirroring. Thanks to dual USB ports, you can connect your smartphone and USB device at the same time. A flush bezel-less 6.95" diagonal (17.6-cm) capacitive touchscreen gives you intuitive control over music, communications and more.

Very happy with this unit. Thought about self installing, but glad I opted for a professional install on my Ford Ranger PXII instead ($220). Note: the installer didn't think all steering wheel buttons would work, but I found some configurations in the unit that enabled me to resolve this. So for example, I can once again answer and hang up calls, but because those buttons are same for skipping songs forward and back I had to choose which I preferred. I went with phone control. Other steering wheel controls worked fine.
The unit is stylish and functional. Swipe menu of Apple Car Play is slightly laggy at times, but overall I am very happy with the product. Weblink works well (mirroring phone) and everything is intuitive. Frankies was also very prompt on the shipping and highly competitive on price. Will recommend Frankies to others.
