Great, with a couple of issues.

XAV-AX200 04/11/2017 by Joseph75 (USA)

Basically, this is the XAV-AX100 with a DVD player and SiriusXM added on. All other features are exactly the same. I LOVE this stereo other than 2 issues. The volume for Sirius is incredibly low compared to the other outputs. I’m hoping they fix this in a firmware update because it’s a pain to spin that tiny volume knob back and forth, which brings me to my other issue. I’m not sure if the face of the stereo is too wide or if the 3 dash kits that I own are too small, but this thing will not fit into any of them, making that little volume knob sit in the recess of the dash because the stereo doesn’t sit flush with the dash, and making it even harder to spin because it’s so close to the edge of the dash kit. I own other Sony stereos that fit just fine but this one doesn’t. Overall, this stereo sounds great, and the UI is very simple and clean, making it easier to use while you’re driving. Some of the other systems out there by other makers are just ridiculous with all the nonsense they cram into the home screen, etc. Hope this was helpful.

Great unit, frustrating startup message

XAV-AX200 01/11/2017  (USA)

Great head unit, but there's a tiresome disclaimer warning/acceptance screen at startup, prompting you to press ok every single time you turn on the unit. It's seemingly a minor issue at first, but after 20 rides on your car it becomes frustrating, unacceptable for a car radio enough to seek an alternative replacement. A simple "Accept and do not show again" option would be sufficient, at maximum on initial installation, after a firmware update, even once a month is perhaps ok, but every single trip, ever single turn on, is frustrating. Sony please sort this out, it's disappointed an otherwise satisfied customer. In my view, the warning is already spelled out and satisfied in the user manual, so shouldn't need to be displayed on the screen at all (perhaps with reboot after a firmware update it's necessary to display just once). Otherwise the integration is good and great features. It's a user friendly device generally.

Lots of features at a good price

XAVAX200 14/11/2017 by Just meeeeeeee (USA) Verified Purchaser Verified

I chose this receiver because it offered a factory look I wanted and wasn’t overly done with lots of blinking lights. One missing feature...the ability to scan favorite SXm stations with steering wheel controls, up/down scrolls through all stations offers. Defeats the use of steering wheel controls. Also wish AM/FM/SXM would be grouped as one like most modern vehicles. Much easier to scan thru stations when you’re looking for something. I do like the CarPlay features, one of the main reasons I chose this radio...CarPlay and SXM!
