Product Information

More screen, more music connections

Use with your phone

Connect your compatible Apple or Android smartphone to get directions, stream music, and more.

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.

Dual USB ports

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

Use Google Maps to get directions and traffic updates whenever you need them.

Bezel-less touchscreen

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

Made it exactly 12 months with no issues. 2 weeks after warranty expires the USB input stops working. Go figure. Sony says “ too bad, buy another unit”.

Good product lacks some detail.
Need the ability to change wall paper, only because of this I should have chosen a different unit.

Lacking features for something of this decade
Came in the truck I bought. Was originally pretty excited to see a double din touch screen but became very disappointed when I discovered how little features it has. Not being able to add a custom wallpaper in 2019 is a joke. Much better with a pioneer or cheap tablet

Awesome Receiver, Quick Boot Time
I bought this head unit along with the Sony XM-S400D Amplifier and could not be more impressed. The system boots quick. The interface is immediate. CarPlay is fantastic. When connected with the amplifier the sound is crazy clear and loud.

Poor connection with android
I have a s10 plus phone all updates done and will connect to head unit for 2-10 minutes and then disconnect and say USB device not supported I reconnect couple minutes later same issue. Tried with my wife's phone and my work phone and same issues. Very disappointed I paid 1300 to have installed with camera and it's just a touch screen radio now.

CarPlay Issues, Lack of Features
Expectations were let down in almost every department other than screen size. Yes, the screen is large, and there is even an equalizer...but that's pretty much all you get with this unit. CarPlay rarely works as intended. Restarting unit, updating firmware, restarting phone, shorter cables...every "solution" exhausted and still nothing from Sony. I really wanted to like this unit, but I really don't. SONY, fix the problem and release firmware updates. Please stop pretending like resetting units is going to fix an across-the-board problem with your product.

I love it
I have had this unit for six months now the capacitive touch screen over resistive, was the kicker for me
It works so well I am afraid to upgrade the firmware ( if it ain't broke don't try to fix it) once every three months or so the the screen will glitch or go dark home and back fixes the glitch and restarting the car the dark.
When installing I had the issue with the dropping of the phone I fixed that and haven't had a problem by routing the actual USB connection on the back of the unit to the key tray under the unit in front of the shifter and hooking my USB cable directly into the units USB connecter.
Problem solved hope this helps somebody who is having issues.
Works great with my Pixel 3 XL

Only wish they would drop Sirius for maestro integration or just give us the ability to remove the Sirius icon
