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.

Excellent design but having issues with CarPlay
I bought this unit a month ago and had it installed and much like the review by AckMan I too cannot get this unit to work consistently with my iPhone X. I have to constantly plug and unplug the cable in hopes that it will eventually activate CarPlay. It works occasionally but it disappointing right now as I cannot make it work every time and I've tried several cables too.

Horrible During Phone Calls
We had Best Buy install this system in my wife's car. Unfortunately, every time I call her, I hear all her phone alerts (emails, texts, meeting reminders) plus all her directions from Google Maps. This is extremely annoying and disappointing. Perhaps we received a bad unit? Best Buy doesn't know how to correct it.

I bought this to replace an older Pioneer I had. It’s like night and day! This is a fantastic unit that won’t break the bank.

Excellent sound and CarPlay integration
I had this unit installed a few weeks ago. At first not so sure of going full multimedia, but it has proven to be an excellent decision. Sound is crisp and clear using only my iPhone. Mostly iTunes And Spotify. Phone calls are easy with Siri. In short, I love it.

Prevents me from being inclined to use my phone whilst driving as the touch-screen does everything I need it to do.

Love this Apple CarPlay Sony Head unit!!!
If your a Apple only person this is a wonderful and quick boot head unit, but if you have both Android and Apple. This unit only is compatible with Apple CarPlay it is dual for Android Auto as well! Amazing product!

I love CarPlay
I bought this at Best Buy and it has changed the way I enjoy the minivan. I'm able to play all the music I want from my phone and use Apple CarPlay to use directions.
