Sony is Making Android Auto & Apple CarPlay More Affordable for Your Current Car

Posted by Poquet Auto on Sep 15, 2016 9:30:34 AM

Adding smartphone-based infotainment to your existing car isn’t very easy, especially if you’re looking for Android Auto. Many aftermarket head units only run Apple CarPlay (like Pioneer's AppRadio 4), while those who run Android can be super expensive (such as the $1,400 AVIC-8200NEX).

Well, Sony is looking to change that with the XAV-AX100, a more affordable receiver that offers both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for a reasonable $500, $100 less than the AppRadio 4.

Although it is not the most elaborate receiver, it does have its own, independent interface with Bluetooth and USB audio, as well as rear camera support.

The AX100 is slated to come out in late November.

But, if you’re looking to buy a new Ford in the coming months, you may want to hold back as Ford recently announced that all of their 2017 models will carry Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Choose… wisely...
