Overview Features Details Accessories

Sony wanted to make a big splash with their first in-dash navigation receiver, so they combined their audio/video expertise with TomTom's navigation know-how. Their XNV-770BT GPS receiver brings you outstanding GPS guidance, superb sound, and convenient features, all controlled by a big, bright 7" touchscreen.

Navigation by TomTom
Sony's partnership with TomTom provides the XNV-770BT with incredibly accurate maps, constantly updated by feedback from TomTom users. And to make sure you can take full advantage of TomTom's mapping expertise, the XNV-770BT comes with four free map updates you can use during the first year. It's easy to update the nav system — just take the TomTom navigation module out of your car and plug it into your home computer or laptop for software and map updates.

You'll appreciate the cool navigation features in this receiver. Spoken street names let you know exactly where to turn, eliminating the guesswork when you're facing multiple turns. The XNV-770BT 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.

High-fidelity sound
Sony's Advanced Sound Engine adds a great set of sound-shaping tools to the XNV-770BT, starting with the EQ7 7-band equalizer to tailor the sound of your music to your taste. You can dial in the perfect stereo "sweet spot" with the Listening Position feature, while 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.

Convenience and expansion
You can take your calls hands-free with the receiver's built-in Bluetooth®, and Bluetooth audio streaming means you can listen to music streaming from your smartphone without even having to plug it into the stereo.

If your tunes are on your iPod® or iPhone®, just plug it in — Sony's 1-wire USB connection makes it 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 an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the receiver, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

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.

I'd buy it again! July-12-12
Reviewer: John from Cohoes, NY  
I was torn between this unit and the Kenwood Excelon.  I went with this one (dont laugh) because you can download new voices for the navigation!  I felt they were pretty similar otherwise, not to mention you get the same features for much less moolah.  The install went well, the HU gave me no troubles, the instructions were crystal clear.  The nav is as easy to use as any stand alone gps.  Audio is very adjustable. I wasnt a fan of any of the preset EQs, so I made a custom one, which is easy to do. I installed in a 2010 Ford F150 XLT screw with SYNC. Used the ford radio interface adapter to retain use of SYNC, along with the PAC SWC adapter.  Instructions for the PAC units leaves much to be desired, but in the end it wasnt that bad, and everything works together nicely.  All in all the stereo sounds great, which is the most important thing really.  Nav is all I could ask for.  The bluetooth phone stuff?  Eh, I havent messed with it much, but I do still prefer to use the SYNC for my phone.  The Sony phone isnt as convenient or user friendly as the sync.

VERY GD! product navi is very on point can't get lost with this, consent reminder of which lane to go in and the 3D effect gets a big thumbs up! Easy  to understand and navigate thur the radio itself is pretty gd with the HD radio, only the sony back up camera did'nt like, not clear enough the pioneer camera on my truck is better much clealer than sony's but the radio plus tomtom navi very gd! Just as gd if not better than the smart phone's wit google maps! highly recommend.

Reviewer: Gos from Durham, N.C.  
I purchased this product and had it for about 1 month now. It sounds great and the gps is outstanding. Helps me find shortcuts to get to places quicker that I didnt know existed. Tom Tom is on another level. The sound machine driven from the system alone is outstanding. Some people envy the sound of my Highs and the Lows I get from this system. I love the many ways you can control and personalize the sound the way you want. The visuals are clear and colorful. Like watching a hd very colorful TV. Some people complained on other sites about the Gps not working over time, but the secret to prevent that is to NOT disconnect or connect the Tom Tom gps module with the ignition or acc turned on. Make sure nothing is on when doing so, and the module will not "fry", causing a possible permanent loss of gps signal. Make sure your installer is aware of this too. Make sure you program the module before taking to installer also.  

Overall, I am in love with this system and look forward to driving everyday. I take an hour drive to and from work everyday, and I enjoy every minute, and find myself driving exactly the speed limit, just to enjoy bonding with my system even longer. Sometimes it seems I still get home too quick. I take my breaks in my vehicle everyday now at work.  

Just make sure you read the manual and fine print before operating to get the most out of it. I cant wait to get outside now to play with it!!!!!

Not bad, wish it was better. May-17-12
Reviewer: RobertH from Gillette,WY  
Ok, I was pretty worried cause i ordered it before reading reviews, but thankfully it wasnt nearly that bad. The Ipod controlling menu could be better/improved. Tom Tom is great accept it doent necessarily know the shortest route. Pretty user friendly menus. Bluetooth is all good. The quality of the LCD is great. Always been a Sony fan/addict.
