Say hello to Siri

With built-in Bluetooth® connectivity, this smartphone-friendly receiver creates a wireless link between your mobile device and your car's audio system, allowing you to stream the music and podcasts you love. With a compatible iPhone® and a wired connection, you can use your voice to control Siri® Eyes Free through the receiver. You'll be able to control music, maps, calls, and messages just by talking to Siri. When Siri talks back, you'll hear the response through the car's speakers.

Awesome for Android Auto

Android users will love this Sony too. You can use voice commands to dictate messages, answer important calls, or use Google Maps to get directions. You can even control music playback with voice control.

Sweet Sony sound

A powerful amp brings depth and dynamics to your music collection. The rich, full sound will even make factory speakers sound better, so imagine the improvement you'll hear when you add aftermarket models to your car or truck. Sony's Extra Bass ensures that you'll hear the thump you expect from your favorite tunes.

You can adjust the 10-band equalizer to optimize the acoustics in your vehicle, or quickly access the preset tone curves to get the sound you want. You can even improve the soundstage by creating "virtual speakers" on your dashboard with the Dynamic Stage Organizer.

Ergonomically outstanding

Distracted driving is a bad thing, so Sony designed this receiver to keep you in touch with your entertainment while you keep your eyes on the road. You use the conveniently located rotary dial to control the volume, or push the knob in to access the receiver's extensive sound control menus. You'll hold that same button to use voice commands for your smartphone.

Whatever you're doing, the big 6.4" color touchscreen looks great and gives you fast, fingertip control over your favorite onscreen functions. All in all, the look and feel of this receiver is really impressive. 

Add a backup camera

Rear-view cameras are getting more popular all the time, and the XAV-AX100 comes with a dedicated rear camera input. Customizable guide lines on the screen will help you back up with confidence, even if you're piloting a large SUV.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

Smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.

This digital multimedia receiver will not play CDs.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    6.4" Touchscreen w/ Gesture Control: The Sony XAV-AX100 digital media receiver is equipped with a 6.4" touchscreen with full-color display and responsive touch-sensitive control. The 6.4" touchscreen monitor has a resolution of 800 RGB x 480 (1,152,000 pixels). With Gesture Control, you can perform frequently-used operations by simply swiping your finger on the touchscreen monitor to the left, right, up, or down (Gesture control is not supported by CarPlay or Android Auto).

    • Wallpaper: You can choose between five color wallpapers (Purple, Blue, Green, Red, Black) for the background image of the unit's touchscreen monitor; or download a custom image from an inserted USB thumbdrive.
    • Picture EQ: You can select a picture quality mode suitable for the interior brightness of your vehicle. You can choose from Dynamic, Standard, Theater, or Custom. This feature is only available when the parking brake is engaged and USB video is the selected source.
    • Aspect Ratio: You can also change the screen's aspect ratio to suit your video content. You can choose from Normal, Zoom, Full, or Captions. This feature is only available when the parking brake is engaged and USB video is the selected source.
    • Dimmer: To change the brightness of the display you can set the Sony receiver to one of two dimmer modes; Dimmer Auto (dims the display automatically when you turn your vehicle's lights on), or Dimmer On (display always dim). You can adjust the dimmer level from -5 to +5.
    Note: To prevent the displaying of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire in the supplied harness must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. Video can only be displayed when the vehicle's parking brake is engaged. While the vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still enjoy CarPlay, Android Auto, & Bluetooth, as well as access audio adjustments.

    3-Way Rotary Dial: In addition to touchscreen control, the Sony head unit features a 3-way rotary dial and push-button control along the left side of the front-panel. 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.

    Remote Control: The Sony XAV-AX100 comes with an IR wireless remote control and supports compatibility with steering wheel remote adapters (sold separately).

    • IR Remote: The included IR remote (RM-X170) provides wireless control of the Sony receiver. The included wireless remote allows you to control the basic functions (not Bluetooth Phone) of the Sony head unit while keeping your eyes on the road.
    • SWC Input: This receiver is compatible with aftermarket steering wheel audio control adapters (sold separately) designed to retain your vehicles existing factory steering wheel controls (if equipped) once the factory radio is replaced with an aftermarket head unit. Its 3.5mm rear-panel mounted SWC input jack allows for simple connectivity (other hardwire connections may be required).

    Android Auto & Apple CarPlay

    Android Auto: Thanks to Android Auto, you can connect your Android OS 5.0 (Lollipop) or later smartphone via a USB cable to the Sony receiver and operate many of the major functions of your Android phone through the Sony head unit's touchscreen. Get traffic information, lane guidance, and real-time navigation assistance from Google maps right from the Sony receiver. You can even send text messages, take calls, or check your voicemail through Android Auto and the Sony receiver. Android Auto also includes voice-recognition technology, so you can control everything just by speaking. Get directions, send messages, make calls, and control music while keeping your hands safely on the wheel.

    • Google Assistant: The Sony receiver enhances your Android Auto experience even more by incorporating Google Assistant using the head unit's external microphone and your car speakers for voice command and text-to-speech, which makes using Android Auto and all of its integrated applications fast, easy, and safe. You will need to press the "mic" button or say "OK Google" to activate the Google Assistant. Use the Google Assistant to make a call, send a message, reply to a message, get driving directions, or listen to music.
    • Google & Waze Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You can even listen to music from your Android Auto device or other connected source device while using Google Maps. If you prefer, you can switch over to a simpler version of the community-based Waze navigation app (version 4.27 or higher).
    • Phone & SMS: With Android Auto you get access to your contacts and messages through the Sony receiver while keeping your eyes on the road. Use the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology to make a phone call, or have your text-messages read aloud to you while you concentrate on the road ahead; you can even reply to texts via voice command.
    • Music: Access your Android smartphone's music library through the Sony receiver via Google Play Music. You'll be able to browse music like you do on your smartphone with song/artist information display and album art. Use the receiver's touchscreen to select songs or just say what song you want to listen to through the head unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You also get access to online music and internet radio stations from Amazon Music Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Slacker Radio, & Tune-In. Music apps include song and station browsing, plus song/artist information and album art or station logo.
    Notes:
    • Android smartphones with a USB Type-C connector (including the Pixel) may not function without appropriate USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone cannot be used while Android Auto is being used with a connected Android smartphone. However, you can stream Bluetooth audio while using Android Auto's Google Maps.
    • Use a USB cable that is under 6' long and avoid using any extension cable other than the one attached to the rear chassis.

    Apple CarPlay: Use all your essential iPhone functions on the road, with Apple CarPlay and your iPhone 5 or newer (running iOS 7.1 or higher). Connect your phone via an Apple-certified Lightning-to-USB cable, and you'll see a familiar interface displayed clearly on the Sony receiver's touchscreen. Simply tap the icons to take calls, check voicemails and text messages, or bring up maps. And of course, listen to your favorite songs using iTunes, Apple Music, or select music apps. Apple CarPlay even lets you talk to Siri to control everything using voice commands. You can dictate text messages, control music playback, or get directions, without ever taking your eyes off the road.

    • Maps: The power and simplicity of Apple Maps comes to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. If you have iOS 12.0 or newer on your iPhone with the latest version of Google Maps or Waze, you can choose to navigate via Google Maps or Waze instead of CarPlay. Google Maps and Waze do not support Siri voice control, but will have there own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver.
    • Phone & Messages: You'll be able to make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemails through the Sony receiver. Siri can also help you do all these things. In addition, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages for you; so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving.
    • Music Library: Access your artists, song, playlists, and iTunes Radio on your iPhone using the Sony receiver's touchscreen. Or, just tell Siri what you'd like to listen to. The head unit's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background.
    • Apps: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying music, radio, sports, news, podcasts, & audiobooks. Control them from the head unit's touchscreen just like you would from your iPhone. Current supported apps include (fees may apply):
    Notes:
    • Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or newer running the latest iOS version.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone. However, you can stream Bluetooth audio while using Apple CarPlay Maps.

    Smartphone Charging: The Sony receiver's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPhone or Android smartphone device when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. If your iPhone or Android device has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

    USB Extension Note: The Sony XAV-AX100's USB port is attached to the rear-chassis via a 7" cable and comes with a 53" USB extension cable. Only use the included USB extension cable with an Apple certified Lightning-to-USB or Android-compliant USB cable when connecting your iPhone or Android device for CarPlay or AndroidAuto. Do not use any other USB extension cable and do not use 3rd party Lightning-to-USB or USB cables that are not Apple certified or Android compliant. Using other types of cables can result in CarPlay or Android Auto malfunction.

    Built-in Bluetooth

The controls of the XAV-AX100 can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also features an external microphone (featuring adjustable gain), so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers.

      • Redial: Use this feature to easily redial the last number you called.
    • Phone Call Adjustments: During a conversation, you can adjust the ringtone volume, adjust the caller's voice volume level, adjust the microphone gain level, as well as switch between the Hands-Free Mode and the Hands-Held Mode (talking directly on your cell phone).

    Wireless Audio Streaming (w/ Metadata Display): The Sony XAV-AX100 also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. You can stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device to the XAV-AX100. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    • Music Control: You'll be able to control basic playback functions; such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, Fast-Forward/Reverse, and Shuffle/Repeat. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to control advanced music browsing functions.

    Rearview Camera Input: The Sony XAV-AX100 is equipped with a composite video rearview camera input to connect a backup camera (sold separately). By connecting a backup camera, you can use the in-dash receiver's touchscreen monitor to see what's behind you when backing up.

    • Parking Guide Lines: When a backup camera is connected and you are viewing a rearview image, parking guide lines appear on-screen making parking easy and safer. There are three color-coded horizontal guidelines. The parking guide lines can be customized to fit your type of vehicle better.
    • Auto-Switching: When your vehicle's shift lever is in the reverse position, the screen automatically switches to the rear view camera; the purple/white wire of the included harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.1 seconds. You can also manually select the rearview camera input from the head units touchscreen..
    Note: The rearview camera feature is meant as a backup aid only; never solely rely on the rearview camera when backing up. In addition to using the rearview camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

    Navigation Ready (Requires Firmware Update): The XAV-AX100 supports Sony's add-On GPS navigation module (158XANV400, sold separately) through its rear-panel proprietary multi-pin port labeled "EXT" (requires firmware update). The XA-NV400 add-on GPS navigation module is powered by TomTom.

    Audio & Tuner Section

    Dynamic Reality Amp 2: The Dynamic Reality Amp 2 gives you 20W (RMS) x 4ch / 55W (Peak) x 4ch of power, so you can play music as loudly or softly as you like with clarity and detail. The amp has 47% less internal resistance than conventional units, for increased output and clear, natural sound at any volume.

    • Continuous Power Output: 20 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Peak Power Output: 55 watts x 4-channels (220 total watts)
    Note: The power specifications for the Sony XAV-AX100 are compliant with the CTA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    5ch/2V Preouts+ Subwoofer Control: The XAV-AX100 contains five 2-volt RCA preouts; a front channel pair, rear channel pair, and mono-subwoofer channel. The front and rear channel preouts can be faded, while the subwoofer preout is non-fading. You can adjust the subwoofer preout's volume level (-10 to +10) independently from the head unit's volume control. You can also select the phase of the subwoofer output from Normal or Reverse.

    Low-Pass & High-Pass Filter: The unit's subwoofer preout features a low pass filter with a selectable cut-off frequency of 50Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 120Hz. The front & rear speaker high-level and low-level outputs offer a selectable high-pass crossover frequency of 50Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, or Off.

    10-Band EQ: You can select from a variety of preset EQ curves. Select from R&B, Rock, Pop, Dance, Hip-Hop, Electronica, Jazz, Soul, Country, Custom, & Off. The Custom EQ preset mode allows you to tailor the sound to your personal preference with its 10-band graphic equalizer. Cut and boost ten different frequencies (32, 63, 125, 250, 500, 1k, 2k, 4k, 8k, 16k Hz) from -10 to +10 for unlimited sound sculpting options.

    Dynamic Stage Organizer (DSO): 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 (DSO) adjusts the signal, improving the stereo positioning so music sounds like it's coming from the dashboard

    ExtraBass: Activate ExtraBass at the touch of a button for an instant, low-end boost. Unlike conventional bass boosters, ExtraBass minimizes distortion at all volume levels by automatically adjusting frequency and gain to their optimal positions.

    Digital Clarity Tuner w/ RDS: The Sony XAV-AX100 is equipped with a Digital Clarity Tuner for clear AM/FM stereo sound with digital processing technology. The radio features 5 memory bands to store and receive AM/FM stations. You can store up to 6 presets each in FM1, FM2, FM3, AM1 and AM2 (total: 18 FM/12 AM). Preset tuning can be done manually or automatically.

    • BSM (Best Station Memory): BSM (Best Tuning Memory) selects stations with the best signals within the selected band and stores them in order of their frequency. You can select from FM1, FM2, FM3, AM1, and AM2.
    • RDS: FM stations with Radio Data System (RDS) service send inaudible digital information along with the regular radio program signal. Radio Data System (RDS) displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible FM stations.

    Beep Tone: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation (only when using the receiver's built-in amp). This function can be turned On or Off.

    Wanted to upgrade from a basic radio that would only play AM/FM/CD's to one that would allow me to stream from my phone and I would also like to install a backup camera. This looks like it will be just what I want. [ Chris  Mar 13, 2019 ]

    I own the earlier version with the front USB port which is poor design. Overall, I love the unit but that port placed on the front gets in the way. For the price, this is nearly perfect. [ Donice  Mar 12, 2019 ]

    Has knobs for audio volume. Why don't all manufacturers understand that some things are better left to an analog feel, and knobs feel awesome. Pushing a button up or down to change volume is horrid. It's ok on the steering wheel controls but that's about it. [ Allen  Nov 13, 2018 ]

    After researching Double Din Receivers, I ultimately selected the Sony XAV-AX100. The receiver checked off nearly all of my boxes, providing an excellent mix of Features, Benefits and Performance, with an Intuitive User Interface, for a very reasonable price. Crutchfield also includes at no additional cost, an OEM removal tool, vehicle specific wiring adapter, vehicle specific installation instructions AND top-drawer Customer Support. Overall- An exceptional Value! [ David  Oct 16, 2018 ]

    Replaced a double DIN with a singel DIN because I was excited to get the little cubbyhole; well, everything you put in there slides out at varying degrees of acceleration, making it useless. Decided to upgrade to a double DIN screen size with android auto; wired only, so I wouldn't futz with my phone while driving but still have an easy way to play music and make phone calls. This fits the bill. Will update once received and installed. [ Peter  Sep 02, 2018 ]

    The stock head unit in my WRX just wasn't cutting it anymore. Not to mention the cd player functionality of it stopped working. Commercial radio is fine sometimes, but when you've heard the same great (as well as not so great) songs played nearly every day, it kind makes you begin to hate them. I love music too much to start hating the songs I once adored. With the ability to play music from my digital library and not to mention what android auto has to offer, I can finally live again.

    You clip the microphone to the most convenient spot on your car.

    [ briman  Mar 27, 2019 ]
    5 answers
    A
    There is no mount except for what's in the back of the unit. The cable is just an extension that would hang down. I bought a Rerii Flush Mount USB Kit on Amazon for $10 and mounted it in place of one of my Auxiliary (or cigarette lighter) sockets on my Tacoma. I'm very happy with the installation and all the great help I got from Crutchfield. The Sony unit with Apple CarPlay and Siri is also fantastic. It makes multitasking while driving nearly effortless. Sound is also noticeably better too compared with my stock high-end JBL sound system. I highly recommend.
    [ Jeffrey  Mar 30, 2019 ]

    It's just the female USB connection that's about 5 feet long that you would string down behind your dash or into your glove box. I believe the port is a separate item. Probably not too expensive, but wasn't included with the stereo when I bought it
    [ Ryan  Mar 28, 2019 ]

    It comes with an extension USB cable. There is a short cable that comes out of the back of the unit. You plug the extender into that (I taped it to make sure it won't come apart) and then run that through your cab. I think the extension connector was like 2-3ft in length.

    [ Nathan  Sep 01, 2018 ]
    1 answer
    A
    Not necessarily; most head unit models with 2-channel (left/right) subwoofer outputs "sum" the 2-channel signal into a mono signal for connecting to your amplifier. Sony does the same thing with their XAV-AX100 model, they just use a single (mono) subwoofer output instead of 2-channel.

    It is a recommended fit in the FR-S (2013 thru 2016) with the proper dash mount kit, yes.

    As you might imagine, this is not normal behavior. Try a new OEM Apple cable, make sure the USB port extension cable at the back of the head unit is secure (I wrapped electrical tape around it instead of using the Velcro strap)... maybe even try connecting the USB cable to the port coming directly behind the head unit. If none of this fixes the problem, it may be the head unit itself. As a side troubleshooting note, if you have the Apple lightning-to-HDMI adapter, check that it works consistently too. This uses a similar communication method to CarPlay. That will help rule out the Apple devices.

    Hi, Alex. Yes, the tuner does display the song title and artist, but only if the radio station transmits that information. Some radio stations do, and some don't. The song title and artist name (and I think the name of the album too) appears on the screen in smallish print, one piece of information at a time. In contrast, when playing music on the XAV-100AX via Bluetooth or CarPlay, the title and artist's name is displayed much larger.

    Not sure about the 7, but we have a 5 and a 6SE and they both work with Car Play. And its brilliant. Better Siri response, better hands free and Nav, better experience all round. We are very happy with the upgrade from the busted factory Radio CD cassette. Install took me about 90 min, including Mic and USB cable. I fed the cables through blank spaces where buttons would go in the dash if my car had heated seats, which it doesn't. Car Play only works while connected through USB, not bluetooth, and sometimes it doesn't kick in properly on Engine Start, we just unplug and re-connect the phone cable.

    The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to compare the differences to help you make the best choice.

    Sony cam out with a firmware update that will allow you to turn off the parking lines. The same update also allows this model to have the Sony xa-nv400 navigation module to added to the ax100.

    There is not any way to do so through the Sony interface (at least, not in this version). You can move them and shrink them down, but can't get rid of them altogether. I was able to line them up so they overlap with my factory camera's backup lines, but that's the best I could do.

    Another issue is dimming the display. I drive with my lights on during the day for safety. The display automatically dims to night mode. You can turn the automatic dimming off but then find yourself configuring while driving down the road.

    I haven't. You can adjust them somewhat. I've been moving them up and forward and then measuring behind the back bumper to the nearest object; garage. I'd like to be able to turn off the legalize screen during startup. This is a safety hazard as by the time the unit has booted I'm already pulling out of the parking lot and then have to look down to turn off Sony's irritating warning screen.

    I have mine set to the lowest setting and I don't find it to be too bright at all, and I'm a bit of a brightness snob. I thought the white buton/nob lights would be distracting, but its not. Its very minimal.
    [ Ari  Jan 05, 2017 ]

    There's an adjustment for the dimmer on the screen, and it goes pretty low. The buttons are barely lit - so I don't think you'll find that be an issue. It's not at all like the Kenwood or the Pioneer where they have the glowing outline on all the buttons.
    [ Claude  Jan 03, 2017 ]

    The non-display buttons on the left side of the unit are very small - Not too bright IMO. The display can be dimmed, and I don't find it too bright. I previously had another aftermarket HU, and I think this unit seems less bright due to less glare from the lighting.
    [ Michael  Jan 01, 2017 ]

    The screen brightness can be adjusted in the menu, and automatically dims when you turn on your headlights. The buttons themselves allow for easy location at night, but are not distracting. I hope this helps!

    It gets pretty dim..essentially as if you'd turn your brightness down all the way on your phone..On my BRZ due to the wiring the auto dim feature on the after market HU could not be done so I had to set it manually.

    I connected the ilumination lead and when you turn your head lights on and turn dimmer all the way up (speedometer and dash lights) On settings you have a choice on how bright you want it From - 5. To. 5
    [ Alejandro  Jan 01, 2017 ]

    The buttons are just fine for night driving, roughly on par with the stock head unit I replaced. The display is pretty bright even on low, but as you noted it can be turned off entirely.
    [ Chris  Dec 31, 2016 ]
    A
    There are only four small buttons on this unit, and even with the headlights off they are not overly bright. When the headlights are turned on, the four buttons will dim. This can be selected in settings as on, auto, or off. Auto will dim with headlight operation. The screen intensity also dims with headlight operation. The display will always be brighter than the buttons though as it needs to be to properly operate it. The vehicle dash light dimmer has no effect on AX100 brightness. Hope that helps.
