Bezel-less display

The ultra-slim 6.95" (diag.) (17.6-cm) display uses a bezel-less panel, for a smooth fit on the dashboard that blends seamlessly with your car interior.

With 2 USB ports, you can enjoy all the greatest hits from your USB device while your phone handles directions and phone calls.

Smarter driving with intelligent voice control

Apple CarPlay and Android AutoTM makes it easier than ever to navigate, communicate, and play music on the road. Just connect to the XAV-AX5000 to see everything you need on the large touch screen.

Siri with Apple CarPlay

Easily access the iPhone features you know and love, just by talking to Siri. Music, maps, phone calls, and messages are all under your control.

Voice Control with Android Auto

Use voice commands to dictate messages, take phone calls, or get help from Google Maps. You can even control music playback, just by talking.

Your personal navigator

Get directions in real time without ever taking your hands off the wheel. Easily navigate to your destination or search for nearby stops mid-journey.

Navigating with Apple CarPlay

Tell Siri where you're going and it will give you real-time directions as you drive.

Navigating with Android Auto

Bring up maps, sort through playlists, and make phone calls — all from a smooth, bezel-less display that integrates seamlessly with your dashboard. The 6.95" (17.6 cm) (diag.) screen ensures everything is easy to use and wakes up 2.5 times as fast as previous models so you can get on the road faster.

Simple button controls

Get instant access to commonly-used features such as volume, source, sound settings, and voice control for safe and easy operation on the road.

Dual USB for phone connection and music library

Thanks to dual USB ports, you can hook up storage devices to access your music library while connecting a smartphone for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

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

With the three pre-outs, you can add components of your choice, like extra amplifiers and subwoofers.

Rear view camera ready

Got a rear camera installed? View it on the screen, along with customizable and removable guidelines that help you back in 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

I want to be able to upload a customized wallpaper like other sony car stereos allow. For some reason, they left this option off this radio. I hope they can fix it!

Terrible Device /Lack of Support & Poor Car Play
Main reason for purchase was to support Apple Car Play - it does not as of March 2019. Bluetooth reception is poor unless phone is close to the receiver. Looking to trade it in.

Very Smooth.... But I Wish It Had MirrorLink!!!!
Very nice looking and sounding radio... The system's touch screen works very smooth and is also easy to understand the day to day operations of the radio.... My only complaint is there is not enough features like MirrorLink, A/V Inputs, Or a simple AUX plug... I understand that everything works threw the USB 1 or 2 on this radio but a few more features would put this radio over the top on all the other "high-end" systems out there..

Not waterproof
I had this installed in my 2016 CVO SG and the installer did not ask me the type of riding I do. I ride whenever, wherever. I don't trailer my bike. Well one slight rain day in Dallas and I lost all my display. Carplay functions work when I plug in my phone but I have nothing on the display. I loved the radio prior to this day and Lucky 7 Customs Cycles did nothing to help me out so most likely I will be going back to stock HD head unit until someone comes out with a waterproof unit.

Good, but not perfect
Bought this product few weeks ago. Works almost as expected, except one little detail. 16kHz frequency (in equalizer) adjustment is pointless, it does not make any difference (confirmed with 2 units in two different cars). Sound quality is not bad, however is does not blow your mind. It is not a head unit for audiophiles! It is for average user, who cares more about features like access to ApplePlay,AndroidAuto etc. I would appreciate if 16kHz freq. adjustment could be replaced with 12kHz, which is more useful - maybe in next firmware update?

This was a great deal on a multimedia product.
Went online to crutchfield, got the kit and harness.
Done, sleek and loud for a head unit
