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.
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.
