Put it in my Subaru Outback 2010. Also replace speakers in the entire car. Cruel difference in sound to original stereo. Nice to finally get the back camera, make more wear and tear with the attachment of the trailer. Quickly connect to Bluetooth from the phone. The handsfree sound is absolutely brilliant, no one hears that you are sitting in the car. Cruel difference to original Subaru handsfree. Has built-in "custom mode" for steering wheel steering, which facilitates and operates clockwise. But don't really get the point of "android auto" Possibly if you use navigation in the car often, but it is 99% internet radio and Spotify itself. And they work great via Bluetooth. Then for android auto to work So you have to plug in the phone via usb, not feel so 2019. Is really happy with the player, and thinks it is quite right in course right now! But had I known how android auto worked before I bought this stereo. So I had not prioritized that function. Had probably just managed me with a Sony XAV-V10BT and saved a thousand fold.

Great stereo! Paid 2999 and it is worth every penny. Inserted it into a Ford SMAX 2008 and the car suddenly felt ten years newer. (Note that in some cases, like in the middle, you need to have cables that give 12V over CAN, which caused a bit of head breaking first). Previous reviewer has complained about some stuff, but basically everything has been remedied with software updates, most recently arrived as late as December 2018. The notification disappears itself. The carplay sound is paused if you switch to Radio. + The sound is really really good, clear and clear, good pressure virtually all registers with a little tweaking out of EQ and DSO. The standard speakers have got a big boost. Now you suddenly notice that you want a subwoofer to balance the much better middle and high register the heights have received. + Carplay works so cruelly. The newest version now includes Google Maps navigation as well. + Physical volume knob + Very good microphone that captures everything despite talking a little quieter. + Good radio receiver + Stylish! Can't find any fault on this machine. The only thing that is really missing is a bit more advanced sound settings as a time computer, but then you have to go up a few thousand more to a Kenwood. That's more than my family bus still needs.

Have one of these in my 2010 Subaru Legacy. Made a big boost for the car, the car feels much more modern. + Good Apple CarPlay. Just plug in the phone via USB and it will automatically arrive. + Reconnect Bluetooth quickly at startup and automatically play the music + Stylish + Can set your own wallpaper to fit better in the car. + Many options for steering wheel control (you can tie buttons etc.) + Graphic EQ, Bass Boost, etc option + Physical volume knob and other buttons. Would have it if the black box that translates the steering wheel buttons stops working. + Good screen despite it's not capacitive touch. Scrolling in lists is the only thing that feels a bit silly, but all other pressures are very responsive. - When you start it will appear, "Do not check me when you drive, check out the road" box that has to be printed by pressing OK on the screen. It's not that annoying (it's usually come back when I'm backing up, so when I change gear from R to D, I press OK at the same time) but would have been more beautiful if it did not arrive at all. - If you listen to Spotify via Bluetooth, the status of the Shuffle / Repeat buttons does not sync. So if you press Shuffle, the songs will be shuffled (you can watch the phone that the shuffle is running) but the stereo icon still says "Off". With Apple Music, it works. - Playing songs from USB is not very user friendly when it comes to Shuffle / Repeat. Sitting on Shuffle wants to shuffle all songs on the USB memory, not just the folder you're in. Same with Repeat (it repeats all songs, not just those in the folder you're in) - If you switch audio source from BT or CarPlay to, for example, radio, the music is not paused in BT / CarPlay - Even though the contact list from your phone is synced to it, it's only number when someone calls you (via BT. In CarPlay it works, when it's Apple's interface then) - The unit gets very hot - Can not have the menus in Swedish. Personally, it does not matter to me, but if I sell the car to an old old man maybe it will be a problem Overall, I am satisfied anyway. Just a few small petits that annoy me. But it has always worked and never sparkled. Also worth mentioning that you can update the device firmware so that most of my problems can be fixed through a new update if Sony feels for it. However, it has not released a new update since April 2017 (Nov 2017 at the time of writing) so I do not know how active they are; They may have stopped caring.
