The large screen makes it easier than ever to see what song is playing or view maps from your smartphone. Read on to find more about this unique source unit option.
Big Screen in a Small Space
How does Sony fit an almost 9-inch screen into a normal car stereo chassis? The body of the XAV-AX8000 is a single-DIN design that can fit into most vehicle dashboards without any modification. The screen of the radio bolts to the front of the display using an adjustable bracket. The screen of the radio can extend up or down from the mounting to position to clear storage pockets, heater controls or the gearshift selector. We can also tilt the screen up or down by 10 degrees to make it easy to see in your dash.
Amazing Connectivity Options
The AX8000 includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. When you connect your iPhone or Android smartphone, you can make phone calls, send text messages or choose the music or streaming audio service you want using the voice recognition engine in your phone. These systems use the cellular internet connection to search for answers to your inquiries for phone numbers or addresses. You can even get turn-by-turn navigation instructions to almost anywhere in North America, just by asking.
The AX8000 includes an AM/FM radio with RDS display and can be upgraded for SiriusXM satellite radio using one of the SXV300 tuner modules. Dual USB ports allow you to connect and charge a smartphone while playing MP3, WMA or FLAC audio files from a USB stick.
