Single-DIN

Built with more vehicles in mind

The XAV-AX3200's screen is the same size as a typical double-DIN (4" tall) receiver, but the actual chassis is just a single-DIN (2" tall) opening height. It's shallower than typical stereos too, so you'll have plenty of room to tuck away wiring or interfaces underneath the chassis.

The best smartphone integration

Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and WebLink let you access your phone's content with the sound of your voice or the touch of a finger. This stereo's controls behave like your phone's interface, so there's no learning curve. Plug in your Android™ or iPhone®, and you'll get access to your navigation, phone calls, weather, text messages, and of course all of your music. Get more info at www.apple.com/ios/carplay and www.android.com/auto.

Get more with WebLink®

WebLink is a handy way to access certain phone apps, like YouTube, that aren't handled by Android Auto or CarPlay. Connect your iOS or Android device and you can mirror your smartphone screen on the Sony's display. It makes a great addition to already-fantastic app control.

The ease of Bluetooth®

Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for music, podcasts, and audiobooks, along with the convenience of hands-free phone calls. You'll enjoy all the content without plugging in when you get behind the wheel. You can install the included wired microphone close to you, so callers can hear you loud and clear.

Coast-to-coast coverage

If you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away when you look for new adventures, add a SiriusXM tuner to this Sony to enjoy satellite radio's deep programming from coast to coast.

Bring more to the equation

Use this stereo's USB rear input for keeping your phone charged as well as easy access to files on a flash drive, including FLAC and even a variety of video files. Sony also includes a rear minijack input for accessing video sources and a backup cam input for incorporating an optional cam to step up safety. 

Dial in your sound

This receiver also offers an impressive array of sound-sculpting controls, including a 10-band graphic equalizer and Dynamic Stage Organizer (DSO) which creates virtual speakers on your dash for better soundstaging. Supporting the soundshaping is the clear and natural sound of Sony's powerful Dynamic Reality Amp 2. The XAV-AX3200 also includes front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs for when it's time to add amplifiers to your system.

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.

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.

    Android & Apple Integration

    Android Auto: Thanks to Android Auto, you can connect your Android OS 8.0 (Oreo) 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 YouTube 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, Tidal, 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. Click here for a list of all compatible app for Android Auto.

    Notes:

    • The initial setup for Android Auto requires that your vehicle be stopped and in park or have the parking brake engaged.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Android Auto is being used with a connected Android smartphone.
    • Click here to learn more About Android Auto and to see what phones are compatible.

    Apple CarPlay: Use all your essential iPhone functions on the road, with Apple CarPlay and your iPhone 5S 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: Through Apple CarPlay, 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 their own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver.
    • Phone: With Apple CarPlay, you can use the XAV-AX3200's interactive touchscreen or ask Siri to make calls, return calls, and check voicemail. To dial a phone number, simply tap the "Phone" icon and Siri will ask you who you want to call. Using the touchscreen you can manually enter a phone number from the on-screen keypad, scroll through contacts, or select from recent and miss calls. In addition, you get access to your voicemails via touchscreen and Siri. When a call comes in, simply tap the "Phone" icon to answer. You'll carry on your side of the conversation through the included external microphone, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's speakers. You can emphasize or weaken the volume level of the microphone. You can also select which car speaker outputs the caller audio; you can select All, Front, or Rear.
    • Text Messages: Apple CarPlay also lets you enjoy a better and safer way of text messaging with friends and family when you're on the road, through the Sony receiver and Siri. Through your voice commands, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages so that you never have to glance at your phone while behind the wheel. When a new message comes in a banner will come across the screen and Siri will read back the message for you. Text messages cannot be read or typed from the head unit's touchscreen to prevent driver distraction.
    • Music Library: CarPlay lets you access your music in your iPhone's music library, plus Apple Music from the Sony XAV-AX3200. You can browse your music by Playlist, Artist, Song, etc.. just like you would on your iPhone from the XAV-AX3200's touchscreen. You can also use Siri to find and play back your music. The XAV-AX3200's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background. Tap the Now Playing icon on the Sony receiver's capacitive touchscreen and see song, artist, album information with Album Art displaying in the background. From the Now Playing screen you also get basic playback function, like Play/Pause, Previous Next/Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Repeat/Shuffle.
    • Audio Apps & Podcasts: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying music, podcasts, sports, news, and audiobooks - including Pandora, Tidal, Spotify, iHeart Radio, TuneIn Radio, Slacker Radio, Vox, Stitcher, MLB.com At Bat, CBS Radio News, NPR One, OverCast, Audiobooks.com & Audible (subscriptions and fees may app). Control them from the head unit's touchscreen or Siri just like you would from your iPhone. Your iPhone's touchscreen remains unlocked during CarPlay connection, so you are able to access additional music apps and listen to them through the Sony receiver; however these apps offer no control or display information from the head unit's touchscreen.
    • Apple HomeKit Compatible: CarPlay now supports control of Apple HomeKit enabled devices (sold separately) through Siri. Using CarPlay in your vehicle, you can ask Siri to close or open your garage door, turn on or off home lighting, increase or decrease the temperature of your thermostat, as well as control select functions of other Apple HomeKit enabled devices and appliances. Click here for a list of compatible Apple HomeKit products.

    Notes:

    • Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5S or newer running iOS 7.1 or higher.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.

    WebLink: Download the WebLink Host app (for Apple iOS 13.0+ or Android OS 7.0+) and connect your compatible iPhone or Android smartphone to the Sony receiver's USB port to access select apps such as YouTube, Yelp, and Zomato through the Sony receiver. The apps must be downloaded on your compatible mobile device and can then be accessed through the Sony receiver's touchscreen using the WebLink interface.

    • YouTube: With WebLink, you can access YouTube (for Apple iOS 12.0+ and Android OS 6.0+) and play videos on the Sony receiver's touchscreen monitor (your vehicle's parking brake will need to be engaged). You can select videos from a variety of categories or search by keyword(s).

A keyword search requires that your vehicle's parking brake be engaged.
    • Zomato: Zomato (for Apple iOS 11.0+ and Android OS 5.0+) lets you search for and discover restaurants to eat out at or order in from. Browse through restaurant menus, photos, user reviews and ratings to decide where you want to eat, and use the map feature to guide you there.
    • MediaPlayer: WebLink's MediaPlayer allows you to access your Apple iOS or Android devices stored music and video library for playback (content must be stored on the device and not the cloud). From the receiver's touchscreen, you can browse your phone's music library by Artist, Album, Genres, Playlist, or Songs. You can also search your music by typing in an artist's name or a song title (the vehicle's parking brake has to be engaged for this feature). In addition, you get playback controls such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, & Random/Repeat. The receiver's screen will display song/artist/album information, along with album art.
    • Cast: The WebLink Cast function allows you to mirror the screen of your iPhone or Android smartphone when the parking brake of your vehicle is engaged (the parking brake wire of the Sony receiver must be connected to your vehicle). The mirrored image on the Sony receiver may be displayed in a landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) orientation; depends on the iPhone or Android device, particular app, and/or specific content. Audio from your compatible mobile phone will also be mirrored through the Sony head unit.
    Notes:
    • Once you have your device connected to the head unit and you have selected WebLink as the source, the WebLink app is not controllable from your Apple iOS or Android device. If you need to control the WebLink app from your smartphone, you will have to disconnect your phone's cable from the Sony receiver.
    • The WebLink app must be opened as the primary app on your phone. If you press the home button or go to access other apps on your phone, the WebLink apps will pause on the Sony receiver, until the WebLink app is the primary app again. WebLink will not work with the app only running in the background.
    • Some apps within WebLink will require that your vehicle's parking brake be engaged to operate certain functions & features of the application.

    Cellular & Data Plan Requirements: Access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and WebLink apps will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or Android smartphone to connect to the Internet. Your compatible Apple or Android device will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, LTE (4G), or WiFi.

    USB Cable Note: The Sony XAV-AX3200's USB port is attached to the rear-chassis via a 59" cable. Only use the attached 59" USB cable with an Apple certified Lightning-to-USB or Android-compliant USB cable when connecting your iPhone or Android device for CarPlay or Android Auto. 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.

    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.

    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.

    Audio Input Level: This feature adjust the volume level different between the head unit and the AV-In or USB connected device. The Audio Input Level range is adjustable from -10 to +15. This function is only available when the parking brake is applied.

    Digital Clarity Tuner w/ RDS: The Sony XAV-AX3200 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.

    • BTM (Best Tuning Memory): BTM (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.

    SiriusXM-Ready: The Sony XAV-AX3200 is SiriusXM-Ready and compatible with the SiriusXM Connect Vehicle Tuner (220SXV300 sold separately). The SiriusXM Connect Vehicle Tuner supports SiriusXM programming with access to 140+ SiriusXM channels via subscription; check out the most popular SiriusXM subscription packages here. Additional features of the SiriusXM Connect tuner include:

    • Channel list displays a list of all available channels
    • Category Search searches for channels in a certain category
    • Displayed Information such as Channel Name, Artist Name, & Song Title can be viewed on the head unit's LCD
    • Up to 18 SiriusXM Satellite Radio station presets
    • Channels containing unsuitable content for children can be blocked
    Note: A separate SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription is required (operates on the XM Network). However, you can easily add this SiriusXM tuner to an existing Sirius or XM account for a Multi-Radio Discount Plan.
    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    6.95" Touchscreen w/ Gesture Control: The Sony XAV-AX3200 digital media receiver is equipped with a 6.95" touchscreen with full-color display and responsive touch-sensitive control. The 6.95" 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 Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, or WebLink).

    • Wallpaper: You can choose between multiple color wallpapers for the background image of the unit's touchscreen monitor.
    • 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 AV-In or 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 AV-In or USB video is the selected source.
    • Dimmer: To change the brightness of the display you can set the Sony receiver to one of three dimmer modes; Auto (dims the display automatically when you turn your vehicle's lights on), or On (display is always dimmed), or Off (normal brightness). 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.

    Push-Button Controls: In addition to touchscreen control, the Sony head unit features six push-button controls along the bottom edge of the front-panel. Push-button control functions include Home Menu/Mute, Volume Up/Down, Previous/Next Track, Fast Forward/Reverse, and Option/Voice. The button illumination brightness follows the display dimmer setting. You can even turn the touchscreen monitor off and only use the push-button controls for playback of audio.

    Remote Control: The Sony XAV-AX3200 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.

    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.

    We do not have any Sony touchscreen radios that also have a CD/DVD play feature, Charles. If you are open to other high-quality brands of stereo, you could consider the Kenwood DDX5707S DVD receiver in the link below. It has Carplay and Android auto when your phone is connected with USB, and of course the CD player!

    This will depend on the type of connection that your specific aftermarket backup camera uses. If it offers a composite video connection (yellow RCA), then it should be compatible. If it offers a different connection, then it will not be compatible.

    Will this fit on Skyline r34 25GTT 1998?
    zachz  Jan 09, 2024
    1 answer
    A
    We sadly do not qualify any JDM vehicles not originally sold in the U.S. in our Vehicle Guide, Zach. Since these vehicles are becoming available for import at the 25-year mark they are becoming more widely available. The Double DIN size radio was originally invented in Japan, and the R34 25GTT's radio does resemble a Double DIN size so the Sony could be considered for install. We cannot provide any vehicle specific install gear for the Skyline. I hope this helps!

    1 answer
    A
    If attempting to install the Sony XAV-AX3200 in your 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Krunal, no dash kit is available for your vehicle. To secure your new car stereo in the dash and maintain a factory look, you'll need to fabricate your own custom kit. The only feature retained would be the backup camera, no steering wheel controls, vehicle settings menu, or 360 camera.

    Q
    On a 2001 Infiniti I30, I've been told that the speakers need to replace in order to make the stereo compatible, is this true? Will the existing steering wheel controls work for adjusting the stereo?
    panchito  Dec 22, 2023
    1 answer
    A
    We do have installation interface packages for the 2001 Infinity I30 that use a line output converter to retain the use of the factory amp, Francisco. If you were bypassing the factory amp with your new radio, you would need to change all the factory speakers as they are a lower impedance. Using an installation package that retains the factory amp would allow you to change the radio and keep the original amp/speakers working and in place. We can retain the use of the steering wheel control buttons, but they require some hardwiring to your vehicle on install. The Sony XAV-AX3200 physically fits and would be an excellent choice for a replacement radio! I have emailed you directly with the cart loadout, we are always here to help!

    A
    The Sony XAV-AX3200 is "XM Ready" Patrick, but you will need to add the SiriusXM SXV tuner in the first link below. You can save some install steps by using your existing XM antenna with the new tuner by using the iDatalink ACC-SAT-TO2 adapter in the second link below. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_220SXV300/SiriusXM-SXV300V1-Tuner.html https://www.crutchfield.com/p_794SATTO2/iDatalink-ACC-SAT-TO2.html

    A
    This radio features an internal amplifier with 20 watts RMS/55 peak x 4 channels. Each channel could be used to power a speaker. This would be enough to power the speakers in most base-model factory audio systems as well as for many of the aftermarket car speakers we carry.

    Will this radio work for my 2022 Electra glide?
    cutty  Oct 02, 2023
    1 answer
    A
    I do show that this Sony XAV-AX3200 is a fit in the 2022 Harley Davidson Electra Glide, Cutty. You will need some extra install gear and an iDatalink Maestro interface, so check out the link below that shows the entire package! Keep in mind that the Sony radio is not marine rated and cannot be exposed to any moisture, and the Maestro interface needs to be flashed by your computer before installing. This keeps current handlebar controls working with the new Sony radio. We do not have any Mastersheet install instructions for your year Harley, but we are always here to help with lifetime Technical Support if you are installing yourself. https://www.crutchfield.com/I-rXYEc222/cart/EmailCart.aspx?emKey=3225335

    Q
    Can the screen be mounted up instead of down??
    clifford  Sep 24, 2023
    1 answer
    A
    The screen cannot, Clifford. It sounds like to me you are wondering if the screen can be attached to the chassis at the lower portion instead of the upper as pictured. The single din chassis is permanently fixed to the radio screen, so you would not be able to swap the chassis to the lower portion of the screen to fit your specific install if needed. We really need to know the details on your specific vehicle to provide any fitment information but depending on your application or if you are tackling a custom install, you could consider the Pioneer DMH-C5500NEX in the link below. This has a large 8" screen that is remotely mounted, you can custom mount the screen separately from the single DIN chassis if you need. Check it out! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_130DMC5500/Pioneer-DMH-C5500NEX.html

    I have a gadget like a minnie transmeter for my XM radio that transmitts thru a radio station in my radio is that the tuner that you require to have for XM radio and is it the way its going to work for this radio?
    teodoro  Sep 11, 2023
    1 answer
    A
    You can upgrade from that style of XM transmitter with the Sony, Teodoro! The Sony is "XM Ready" so you can use the SXV300V1 in the link below to have the XM radio built-in to the Sony. You can still use your existing XM if you wish to continue tuning into the radio station that your tuner transmits to, but having your XM built-in to the radio using the SXV300 tuner can sound a lot better! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_220SXV300/SiriusXM-SXV300V1-Tuner.html

    w kent  Mar 30, 2023

    A
    The Sony XAV-AX3200 does use the parking brake safety connection, and that does need to be connected properly to access the full features of the radio. As far as I am aware, Alpine brand radios are the only ones that use the "double tap" on the parking brake to access core adjustment features. I hope this helps!

    ray  Mar 17, 2023
    1 answer
    A
    No worries with amp connection here to the fantastic Sony XAV-AX3200 radio, Ray. The XAV-AX3200 contains five 2-volt RCA pre-outs, a front channel pair, rear channel pair, and mono-subwoofer channel. Since the radio only has one RCA output for subwoofer connections it's a good idea to snag one of these Hosa y-adapter cables in the link below when connecting a traditional 2-channel subwoofer RCA cable. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_979YRA104/Hosa-RCA-Y-Adapter.html

    Is this unit compatible with my 2012 Toyota Sienna SE? Can I view the stock reverse view cam, which has its own small screen on the dash, on the unit's screen? Will all the feature work, like the steering wheel controls when I install?
    ray  Mar 15, 2023
    1 answer
    A
    Greetings Ray, and thank you for your question. There are a few variables with the Sienna. One with the small screen your camera displays on, Im guessing your Sienna did not come with factory navigation. If not, the camera is going to continue displaying on the smaller screen. If your Sienna did come with navigation, then with the correct wire adapter, we get your camera on the new stereo screen. For either with or without factory navigation, we have a wire adapter to keep those steering wheel radio controls.

    Greetings Jeff, and thank you for your question. The Sony XAV-AX2300 should not have to be programmed to auto switch.

    Greetings Ellerbell, and thank you for your question. The Sony XAV-AX3200 has an auxiliary jack on the back of the chassis. If your factory port dose not work, just run a 3.5mm auxiliary cable from the back of the stereo to the front of your dash and use that.

    What size is the custom wallpaper (i.e. 1024 x 768)?
    bob  Dec 05, 2022
    1 answer
    A
    Images used for a custom wallpaper would look best at 800 x 480. This will fill the entire screen without requiring the image to be stretched.

    Q
    The description states that it must be wired to the handbrake to view videos, but I don't have interest in that so would the handbrake wire still need to be hooked up?
    bob  Nov 21, 2022
    1 answer
    A
    Yes, the parking brake still needs to be connected for the rest of the features to work properly. Even if you don't plan to watch any videos CarPlay, Android Auto, and other apps will not work correctly if that wire is not connected.

    Greetings Pat, and thank you for your question. The screen is fixed, not adjustable, not removable. This stereo is like a double din, but has a single din chassis. It will mount in your dash flush.

    I have a xav-ax3000 now, will this work with same hook ups?

    1 answer
    A
    If you have a Sony XAV-AX3000 in place now and would like to upgrade to this XAV-3200 you should be able to use all your existing install gear Randall. You will need to splice on this radio's new harness to your existing gear and most of those connections are color-coded and easily identifiable with the new radio. If you don't have any gear on hand for that connection grab a pack of these Posi-connectors in the link below with your radio order. These are really easy to use and will allow you to make a reliable connection with your new Sony radio with zero tools! We provide lifetime Technical Support with every order, so we can help you make those connections over the phone if you need, 7 days a week. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_669PP500/Posi-Products-Car-Stereo-Wiring-Harness-Connectors.html

    This says it has bluetooth but some comments also say you have to plug in via USB. I have an Iphone 8. Will I be able to connect to Apple Car Play using bluetooth?

    A
    Even I get confused about Carplay sometimes, Kenny! So the features list is true, this Sony XAV-AX3200 does have Bluetooth. You can connect wirelessly for music streaming and hands free calling with Bluetooth to your iPhone 8, but for the full on Carplay screen mirroring you will need to physically connect that USB cable. IF you are looking for a unit that can do the Carplay screen mirroring wirelessly, check out this Sony XAV-AX4000 in the link below this radio will do Carplay totally wireless! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_158XAV4000/Sony-XAV-AX4000.html

    Q
    Crutchfield says this won't fit my 2015 Subaru Forester with KM audio and navigation, but the Carplay salesman said it would fit. In what way does Crutchfield think this unit won't fit my car?

    A
    Greetings Keith, and thank you for your question. It can fit your dash, but the installation kit to get it mounted into your dash is not going to hold the radio to our standards. The kit (part number 120958202) really needs a full double din size chassis to get all the screws mounted to the stereos chassis. If you look close at the Sony its a single din chassis with a double din face. There is just not enough chassis to mount it properly.

    The manual says this is has Bluetooth 3.0. Any reason this model does not have BT version 5.0? Is that a typo in the manual? That is a main concern for me, along with the resistive touchscreen, no CD player, nor is there built in HD radio. Thanks

    The Sony XAV-AX3200 does have Bluetooth version 3.0. This is an entry level model Sony radio which does not have some of the features the higher end radio models have. We actually do not have any Sony radios that have an HD tuner or CD player. If you'd like a recommendation on a radio with all the features you're looking for, give us a call at 1-800-324-9695 and we'll be glad to help you find the perfect radio!

    how do you connect the I phone to this radio. it states that the USB connection is in the back so does that mean that a USB cable must be routed to the front to plug in the phone?

    Yes there is a 59" USB extension cable in the rear that you would need to route to the front of your dash to plug in your phone.

    1 answer
    A
    This Sony XAV-AX3200 does not have Sony's specific anti-glare treatment sadly, Robert. If you are a Sony fan like me and like the features on this XAV-AX3200 take a gander at the new XAV-AX4000 I've linked below. This unit does have the anti-glare panel, and also works well with polarized lenses. You also get the bonus of the wireless Carplay/Android auto! It's always a good idea to use our website Vehicle Guide to confirm whether it will fit and work in your ride, but this should be a solid call! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_158XAV4000/Sony-XAV-AX4000.html

    Greetings Dave, and thank you for your question. The Sony XAV AX3200 is a wired Android Auto stereo. Sony is coming out with an XAV AX4000 that will do either wired, or wireless Android Auto. The ETA is unknown. Of course we have other brands that can do Android Auto wirelessly.

    This will depend on the vehicle and available integration gear. You can reach contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

    I would imagine it would so long as you have the right dash kit and harness. The unit is not as deep as most double dins and is single din behind the screen. I put this in my 2005 BMW M3 and it fit excellently, even though Crutchfield says it will not work.

    I believe you will need to remove your original radio cage. You should look at the recommended installation parts for your vehicle (they should be listed once you enter the vehicle information) to see if there is an installation kit or ???cage??? that adapts this radio to your vehicle.
