Product Information

XAV-AX1000 6.2" Apple CarPlay Media Receiver with Bluetooth

Sound meets safety and effortless usability

Enjoy intuitive and simple control for every journey with Apple CarPlay connectivity and a responsive 6.2" diagonal touchscreen that wakes up two and half times faster than previous models.

Connect your compatible iPhone to get directions, stream music, and more.

Control at your fingertips

The large, clear touchscreen gives you intuitive control over music playback and smartphone functions.

Quick wake up

With activation two and a half times faster than previous models, you're ready to go right after turning on the ignition.

Smarter driving with intelligent voice control

Apple CarPlay makes it easier than ever to navigate, communicate, and play music on the road. Just connect your iPhone to the XAV-AX1000.

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.

Your personal navigator

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

Navigating with Apple CarPlay

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

Clear, responsive touchscreen

Enjoy the 6.2" (15.7cm) full-color screen with light touch operation with clear visibility.

Turn or push to control

The ergonomic rotary dial makes operation distraction-free. Turn it to control volume, or push the integrated button to launch sound control menus. Alternatively, hold the button to use voice commands.

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

Have a rear camera installed? View its feed through the screen, along with customizable 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.

Fully changed my Car’s Appearance!!
My 2108 Dodge Grand Caravan was lacking Carplay and so I bought this from best buy and installed it there itself. I am a big fan of sony and this Car stereo has surpassed my expectations. Excellent interface with improved sound quality. I am so happy that I selected this over other brands.

Perfect in my 2005 F150
I’m very happy with the unit after using it for about a month. Installation was a snap. Especially with Crutchfields preassembled wiring harness. No complaints.

I bought this for my 4runner. Cuz my first receiver burnt out. This like I said is a hidden gem. It works awesome and love the way it shows and displays things. I'm very happy and satisfied with this unit.

Started right up as expected. All s good on day one. Great sound on the stock speakers of my 2006 Mustang which had the factory Shaker 500 system. Added a pair of 10” subs with amp in the trunk and still have some tweaking to do. Thanks Sony for a great head unit.

Sleek Design
bough this two weeks ago. Very easy to install into my jeep grand cherokee 2002. Had to buy a dash kit and cut the inside of my dash to fit this stereo, but now it fits like a charm. Looks sleek and not flashy, almost as if its the factory made stereo.

Great value choice overall
Bought this due to a new handsfree law in my state, plus the NY Times had a review that called this the best value buy for carplay radios. I'd agree with that. It's easy to use and I like that it has a volume knob instead of buttons. Really like that it keeps playing the radio in the background while in carplay mode.

One quibble is that there are only about eight characters for the RDS feature, meaning it takes about four or five lines before you get an artist or song, which is annoying when you're driving and just want to get it at a glance. There's plenty of screen real estate to show it all at once, so maybe they can fix this via an update in the future.

Crutchfield Experience
Purchased this product on Sep 10th and it was delivered on the 19th in excellent packed condition. All instruction sheets were received to remove and install the new unit and they were precise and on point. I absolutely am satisfied with this Sony product. Certainly exceeded my expectation. Carplay is absolutely wonderful and a joy to play with. The output wattage is also more than ample for this unit. Did not know about DSO but it certainly makes a difference with door speakers that are mounted toward the bottom. Would certainly recommend this product and also Crutchfield for their excellence in technical expertise and overall purchase experience. Good Job.

What is apple car play?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2019
  Hi there! Apple CarPlay is Apple software built into specific touchscreens (such as this Sony) that allows you to connect your iPhone through a USB input that comes with the touchscreen receiver and popular apps are now displayed on the in-dash touchscreen - apps such as Apple Maps, Waze, or Google Maps for navigation, music streaming apps such as Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, etc., and a whole lot more! It's Apple's way of making drives safer as well as more enjoyable. Hope this helps!
Does it have dab?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2019
  Hello! No, this touchscreen does not have DAB as it's meant for the North American market.
Does it works with Android auto?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2019
  Hi and thanks for reaching out! The XAV-AX1000 does not have Android Auto built-in. It only has Apple CarPlay. If you have a need for Android Auto, check out Sony's XAV-AX5000 model instead. Hope this helps!
