Travelling's good when you're with a passenger who knows the way. Sony combines their audio/video know-how with TomTom's navigation expertise to create the perfect copilot — the XNV-660BT navigation receiver. You'll enjoy the easy-to-read maps on its bright, bold 6.1" touchscreen display, and the confidence of knowing you're not wasting your valuable time driving in circles.

TomTom navigation
Even the best navigation system is useless if the maps aren't up to date. You can update the XNV-660BT's maps for free up to four times during the first year, so you can drive with the latest info on board. Just plug the TomTom navigation module into your laptop or home computer for software and map updates — information that's constantly updated by TomTom users.

You'll appreciate the real world help from your new copilot. Spoken street names let you know exactly where to turn, eliminating the guesswork when you're facing multiple turns. The XNV-660BT also guides you to the correct lane for an upcoming turn, which is a great help in busy interchanges. And TomTom's exclusive IQ Route™ feature calculates travel time based on actual traffic speeds.

Bluetooth® convenience
The receiver's built-in Bluetooth lets you take your calls hands-free with compatible phone, and Bluetooth audio streaming means you can listen to music streaming from your smartphone or player without even having to plug it into the stereo.

Raise the flag for high-fidelity sound
The XNV-660BT features Sony's Advanced Sound Engine, a set of versatile sound-shaping tools. You can tailor the sound of your music to your taste with the EQ7 7-band equalizer, and dial in the perfect stereo "sweet spot" with the Listening Position feature. Sony's DM+ Advanced circuitry makes your digital music sound its best by restoring the details that are lost in compressed MP3, WMA, or AAC files.

Your music, at your command
If your tunes are on your iPod® or iPhone®, you'll appreciate that Sony's 1-wire USB connection makes listening to them a simple plug-and-play operation. Quick-BrowZer lets you search for a song by genre, artist, or album. If you've got lots of songs on your iPod, you'll wonder how you ever lived without these two features: the Jump control leaps through your files in 10% increments, while Zappin' plays short musical clips of your tunes until you hear the song that suits your mood. If you want more listening variety, add an optional HD Radio™ or satellite radio tuner.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use this adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Sony stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Sony, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

Good but not excellent November-14-11
Reviewer: JoeG from Lexington, KY  
I was literally able to start the car, back up from my garage, and start driving forward and the rear view camera had not kicked in yet! So many clicks to make one phone call. It does not cache the menu you follow to select the song on the iPod - each time you start from the beginning. When you go into the phone mode, it stops the sound system although you have not made a phone call yet! Also, if you make the call and you are done with it, it doesn't go back to the sound system you were using just before the call. You basically have to keep on clicking to make the device do what you like. iPod doesn't always work if you leave it hooked into the device. Would be nice to have settings like RBE set separately depending on what system is playing. Although it has vehicle speed sensor input, it does not have Auto Sound Leveling (get louder as the car speed up & vice versa). All in all, it is a good device, but is not user friendly at all. You have to be prepared to click your way through, which defeats the purpose of paying attention to the road. I expected better from SONY.


 
Basic October-04-11
Reviewer: Natem from greenville, SC  
Unit is sufficient.  Has all the features you need and more, but lacks style.  Pretty  slow too.  Reaction time from touching the screen is far too slow, and this is made  by Sony???  Anyway, I wish I had spent the extra 200 bucks for a Kenwood.  You  should too before you regret it.


 
It works July-05-11
Reviewer: Zach from San Jose, CA  
The Unit: It works. Because it tries to integrate 2 systems- the TomTom nav and the Sony entertainment system, there are some limitations. I like that you can update your maps (with a fee) by separating the nav unit and connecting it to your computer. Getting back to the Sony system from the nav system is clunky, taking several steps unless you opt to show an obviously added set of intrusive screen buttons on the nav screen. A screen dimmer works when turning on the headlights but to get nighttime colors on the nav system, I need to manually turn on the nighttime colors (dark background, reversed colors etc) each time. The interface itself looks nice and polished for both the nav and entertainment system. No traffic info option. Issues with Crutchfield. The GMC required adaptor (LAN-01) that Crutchield supplies is cheap and also happened to be broken, had to pay for a more expensive one (LAN-03) from an installer. The lag improved when I replaced it. The faceplate that came free with the unit didn't fit, once more had to pay for a different one.

ok unit March-09-11
Reviewer: john from york, PA  
the unit seems nice . it is user friendly but i do not like the fact that there is a  seperate unit for the tom tom that has to be mounted in a location that is  accessible to be removed.the mounting hardware for this tom tom unit is terrible. this  should have been built into the unit itself and downloadable through the usb.it  seems like a after thought for sony. the kit that crutchfield sends out to mount this  unit into a 07 honda fit  sport is poor quality, it looks like someone put the a/c  control strickers on with a 2nd graders glue stick. the body lines do not match up  . the color is ok. the install sheet that came with it for my car from crutchfield was  not very clear about the speed senor wire location(if you are sending a install  sheet for my specific car they could at least let you know where the wire is)( in  the 07 honda fit it is the purple/white wire in your factory radio harness)the  manuel for the sony 660bt is about 100 pages long but only about 20 are for  english and it does not go in depth about much just a general overview for the  features that it has.


 
Excellent Unit March-05-11
Reviewer: Eric from St. Louis, MO  
As with all Sony products, this unit is excellent!  Sound is fantastic and the screen resolution
is great.  Navigation tracks very well and always has a strong signal.
