Product details

The Sony XAV-601BT RDS Tuner and CD Player is a full multimedia centre for your car, interacting with your smartphone for unprecedented convenience, functionality and entertainment.

The perfect blend of in-car audio and smartphone

With the XAV-601-BT in-car RDS stereo, it's as easy to use your car stereo as it is using your smartphone. With Mirrorlink technology, you'll be able to connect a compatible certified smartphone via USB to enable the car system's head unit display to reflect the phone's screen and usability.

The high-resolution WVGA touchscreen lets you manage music, navigation and more with effortless fingertip control. A familiar appearance and interface lets you access music, navigation and more in a totally intuitive manner.

Always informed, connected and entertained

Enabling your smartphone to work seamlessly with your head unit display, the Sony X-AV601BT RDS Tuner with CD Player makes it easy to connect iPod and USB devices to stream music wirelessly using Bluetooth.

With Bluetooth, the stereo also allows you to make and receive phone calls hands-free. Hook up your iPhone or iPod to view content on the stereo screen when your vehicle is stationary with the handbrake on.

Music can be wirelessly streamed from your phone to the car audio system using Bluetooth. As well as iPod and iPhone, you can connect Walkman devices and USB drives. SensMe channels help you match tunes to your mood by automatically grouping tracks into themed channels, and ZAPPIN lets you quickly find the track you want.

A car stereo that makes journeys easier

Add the TomTom navigation upgrade to your Sony X-AV60-1BT RDS car stereo, for easy journey planning using an optional TomTom satnav module and external GPS antenna.

The stereo also offers dual USB versatility, enabling you to hook up two devices simultaneously via USB - attach an MP3 player and a smartphone for example, giving you access to more content at once.

You can also enjoy zone by zone entertainment - while passengers in the front listen to music, people in the back can watch a DVD using optional rear screens. Passenger App Control – lets passengers access content from their iPhone on the in-car system, using the iPhone touchscreen to control it.

The fully removable front panel keeps things from prying eyes to help prevent theft.

The Sony XAV-601BT RDS Tuner incorporates virtual 5.1 channel surround sound, which simulates the dynamic, full-range audio quality of multi-channel hi-fi systems. A range of formats can be played from DVDs, CDs and CD-RWs in high quality on your in-car system.
