Overview

Our take on the Sony MEX-BT3000P

Built-in Bluetooth® and Pandora® control for Android and Blackberry
Most people only think about hands-free calling when they hear "Bluetooth," but Sony's taking it a step further with their MEX-BT3000P CD receiver. You can access your phonebook, stream music, or control your Pandora® Internet radio stations on your compatible Android or Blackberry phone.

Built-in Bluetooth® and Pandora® control for Android and Blackberry
Most people only think about hands-free calling when they hear "Bluetooth," but Sony's taking it a step further with their MEX-BT3000P CD receiver. You can access your phonebook, stream music, or control your Pandora® Internet radio stations on your compatible Android or Blackberry phone.

Sony MEX-BT3000P

When a call comes in on your phone, just press a button and talk to callers as if they're sitting next to you. The receiver's built-in microphone picks up your voice, as you hear your caller through your car's speakers. Making a call is easy too, since this receiver will store your phone book info. And when your phone is paired, you can control your Pandora® account from the receiver, without any wires cluttering up your console or dash.

More music options
The MEX-BT3000P plays all your store-bought or home-burned CDs, including discs packed with hours of digital music files. For other sources, plug into the front-panel auxiliary input — handy for connecting a game console or an iPod®. If you want some real radio variety, you can add a satellite radio tuner to enjoy the music, news, talk, and sports you'll find on SiriusXM stations.

Good sound included
Sony builds beefy capacitors into this receiver that help deliver extra-strong bass response, while a special processor limits distortion when you turn up the volume. You'll find a 3-band equalizer with eight preset EQ curves for adjusting the sound. Two pairs of preamp outputs make it easy to connect external amplifiers.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Sony stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Sony, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

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.

Receiver works great with my iPhone! Just wish I would've gotten this sooner.

    I purchased this stereo for my daughters older Toyota car. The installation took about 2hrs including removing the stock stereo. The set up was very easy we connected it to her android phone with no problems. Music streaming worked great we could change songs or albums with the deck controls. We connected Pandora with no problems. Changing stations or songs works from the deck controls. The thumbs up and thumbs down does not work from the deck at all. Receiving phone calls works good my daughters car is noisy and so it is not practical to talk while driving but she doesn't need to do that anyway.

    Pros: Simple installation Quick and easy Bluetooth setup Great Bluetooth controls for music streaming and Pandora Looks Great

    Cons: Pandora Thumbs up and down doesn't work

    Overall I love the bluetooth ability of this stereo. It was easy to set up and everytime I get in my car and turn it on, my phone hooks up. Press play and I'm streaming music/ radio or playing music off my phone. The Pandora feature is suprisingly nice. Also, the call features, being able to access my address book is very nice.

    Pros: Bluetooth, pandora, affordable, easy to install in a Ford Ranger.

    Cons: Warning alarm when I turn off my car without removing the face unit. I'll never remove the face plate. Wiring didn't hook up to my vehicles dimmer, but unit has a dimmer in the sub menu.

    I bought this head unit for my Mother in laws 02 Mitsubishi gallant. I was pretty sure at the time that the speakers were blown in the car but I was very wrong, This new unit really woke up the factory speakers and this unit sounds great. Bluetooth pairing is fairly easy not the best I have used but works pretty good. The Microphone for the Bluetooth is built into the unit and is pretty good, again not the best but pretty good. If you are looking for a good priced unit that has good sound quality this just might be the unit for you.

    Pros: Bluetooth, Sound Quality

    Cons:

    After reading the Crutchfield tech review, I have to disagree, with the fact that it doesn't have usb connection. This radio is full function with the Bluetooth and these days that's all you need, if you're not crazy over apple products. ugh!

    Pros: Bluetooth audio, phone, can access my phone book. & the aux connection a big plus Couldn't beat the price and all the components needed to make installation a breeze.......

    Cons: None

    This is the 4th car stereo I've bought from Crutchfield and I would never consider going anywhere else. It doesn't matter what vehicle I'm shopping for, Crutchfield already has a product that will fit any budget. Sure, there are lots of places to buy a car stereo but you only get totally reliable support from Crutchfield. It doesn't matter what your application is, Crutchfield's installation kit will make the finished product look like factory original. And, if you need it, their tech support will answer any question you can dream up.

    Pros: Great installation kit - everything you need in one step Great technical support when you have a question Simple intuitive Bluetooth interface Looks like a factory original Great price

    Cons: No cons. This transaction, like all the others I've had with Crutchfield from start to finish was flawless.

    Installation was easier than the first stereo I ordered back in 1976 (?) from Crutchfield (you've come a long way!). For the price it is hard to complain. Once you spend the time to read and understand the instructions it exceeds expectations, the remote came in more handy than expected as the preset buttons are quite tiny if you have 10 thumbs like me, let alone trying to see what button you are pressing while driving can be a visual challenge. Read instructions, set it up correctly and you will be a happy camper!

    Pros: Bluetooth is the best feature hands down, once I understood the Mic settings I have not had a problems since, more Preset stations settings than I could ever use.

    Cons: Preset buttons and labeling smaller than I would like to see but the remote is available to overcome that. Have not been able to down load phone list, but that is not a major issue.

    Very Solid for the money...

    Install was a breeze. Very easy, any average DIY'er can install this deck. The install kit and wiring harness fit like gloves. Crutchfield advisor was super helpful. Unboxed the deck, harness and kit and was listening to my iphone over the bluetooth connection less than an hour later. Thanks Crutchfield!!!!

    Pros: Could have only been easier if Crutchfield had sent someone to install it themselves. Super happy...........

    Cons: Absolutely none. Beginning to end professionals.

    I'm very happy with the Sony. I looked at JVC and Alpine, but decided on the Sony due to its features, Pandora, Bluetooth, and preamp outputs. Installation was a breeze with instructions and adapter from Crutchfield. I would recommend this unit to anyone who needs media connectivity at a solid price.

    Pros: Price Bluetooth Pandora Front/Rear Preamps Remote Power

    Cons: Connection to Pandora app is sometimes glitchy, otherwise, none!

    It was very easy to install. Sound quality is good. It's a bit awkward to move from one feature to another, but I'm getting the hang of it. Overall an excellent unit for price. Concern: It refuses to "pair" with my Samsung Galaxy S-2 android phone. Guess I'll call the Crutchfield Tech guys.

    Pros: Easy to install, instructions are clear and pics are spot on. Sound is great (for price)

    Cons: No USB port. Problem with pairing Bluetooth

    You won't be disappointed with this unit. I can't believe all the features for the money. Build quality is also phenomenal. The controls are fairly easy to get used to. The bluetooth operates extremely well with the built in microphone. The displays are awesome. I really can't think of anything I don't like about this unit, especially for the price.

    Pros: Value, features, cool looks, bluetooth quality

    Cons: The sound quality is very good but could be better if you are a serious audiophile but it may be my speakers and not the unit itself. I gave it a 4/5 on ease of use but that was due to the Crutchfield instructions not being as clear as they might have been and this necessitated a couple of calls to tech service for clarification but the people on the tech line are GREAT!

    I was warned that there would be limited functionality with my iPhone4s because it was made for use with other phones but it seems to work fine. BT connection works great, sound is awesome, calls come in and you can put a button on the radio or on the remote to receive the call. seamless and connects evertime.

    Pros: bt works with any phone in the car so anyone with bt can connect and play their music. phone connects quick and calls are extremely clear... radio also has great reception

    Cons: sometimes the on screen display cannot display what the iPhone is sending or playing but it works better with other phones. not a big deal.

    This radio console is a great unit to buy for a DIY project. It's simple to install (especially if you get the free adapter wiring connectors) and use. Matched with new speakers (I bought two Sony speakers for my front doors and two Sound Ordnance kickers for the rear) pumps out great sound. I'm looking to add a sub-woofer to complete the system soon.

    Pros: Cheap, Easy to use and install, Simple design, and in-system tuning of sound quality is quick and easy.

    Cons: Built-in microphone can be a little weak at times and cause garbled sound for caller on the other end of the line when using BT Phone.

    Does everything it's supposed to do. Easy install, thanks to Crutchfield's wiring harness and installation kit. Bluetooth pairing works perfectly, automatically pairs with my phone when I turn the car on. Bluetooth streaming is easy to operate also.

    Pros: inexpensive, handsfree Bluetooth

    Cons: menu settings are somewhat complex to operate.

    A really great car stereo with modern convenience features that does not break the bank. I love this car stereo. Call feature works and works well. It beats my Plantronics Bluetooth adapter for quality on both ends of the call. I also really like the ability to end the call by hitting the big volume button.

    Pros: Bluetooth Connectivity. Value. Call Quality. Sound Quality -- Lots of tweaking options. Lots of preset options for additional Satellite Radio Tuner.

    Cons: Dimmer option is not that useful as the Call Button is VERY bright and blows everything else out. Screen is useful but limited. Would prefer an option to keep the time on every display mode. It is fairly easy to wreck your pairing with your phone, would prefer an option to lock the interface.

    Good radio for the price !!!!!

    I got this unit to replace the blown stock radio in my 96 m-edition miata. I went the route of mounting an ipad mini in my double din space, and mounting this unit just under my glove box. The included installation gear made it easy to wire in, and the customer service was outstanding. I have the ipad steaming bluetooth audio to the unit, and the sound quality is surprisingly good.

    This is a wonderful stereo. Install went very smooth with all the free install gear from Crutchfield. Sound quality is really good. Had no problems syncing it with my Samsung Note II. Bluetooth works wonderful. No need to use the AUX input (but it's nice to know it's there). Calls are pretty decent. Tuner is good at finding stations, and the RDS display is also a nice feature. Comes with a nice remote that can control the unit. Note this is a 2012 model, and has since been replaced with a newer model with a few upgrades (USB support being the big upgrade).

    This Sony Bluetooth CD head unit had everything I was looking for including a built in mic. Now there is no place for an external mic, but all who have talked to me on it can't tell the difference. The controls for the Bluetooth work great and control my music forward and back. All in all, a great value for the money.

    The Bluetooth on this unit is superb. I installed in 1999 Saturn which is not a quiet car, yet the built in microphone picks up the caller's voice with great clarity. I only rated the Ease of Use category a 4 because there are so many features packed into this unit it may be hard for someone not comfortable with the latest electronic gadgets to know where to start. I especially like the link to the phonebook on my IPhone. Scrolling through the phonebook is easy and the letters on the screen are big so make it easy to read. I also like the speed dial feature to set up 6 frequently called numbers that can be dialed by touching a "station" button. I recommend it to anyone.

    Pros: Crutchfield makes it so easy to install by providing instructions and the exact kits / adapters needed for anyone's specific vehicle. Crutchfield's instructions on how to remove the old unit eliminates the fear of doing something horribly wrong.

    Cons: I didn't have the compression connectors to connect the unit to the wiring harness adapter so I had to wait until the next day (stores were closed) to finish the implementation.

    I love this Sony! The only thing is the built-in Pandora Mode only works with an Android/Blackberry (which I read in the fine print after I ordered it) but my iPhone does work fine in Bluetooth Music mode for Pandora or any music app. BT phone works fine too. I had no problems installing it according to the instructions on my Ford Ranger, replaced the OEM which had lost the LCD display some time ago. Recommended!

    Pros: Good sound quality. Good price. Easy to install.

    Cons: Its built in Pandora App mode doesn't work with the iPhone, but I still can use Pandora from the iPhones controls via the BT Music mode.

    FM Sensitivity rating on this unit is not a joke. I'm picking up stations I never knew existed. If you like listening to the radio this will definitely pull in stations you don't normally hear. My Android phone paired and started streaming music, and receiving/making calls without any issues. The controls are a little cumbersome to use when doing anything other than just flipping between radio stations. But over all so far... great unit.

    Pros: FM sensitivity.

    Cons: No external mic for the blue tooth. Not the easiest to operate while driving down the road.

    Needed to replace my radio in my Audi because the factory one was not working anymore(non-bose), and this worked perfectly except that I had to rewire the back speakers(because of the fact that Audi has two separate amps for the rear speakers) and put aftermarket ones in but it didn't take much to figure that out. I installed it the same day I received it. I love the Bluetooth audio streaming capability. For $110 you can't go wrong with this product, I love it. I will definitely order from Crutchfield for all my car audio needs from now on.

    Purchased this radio to replace the one I purchased before from Crutchfield which is still in excellent condition. But I wanted a Bluetooth radio I could stream music to while using my smart phone, well this unit did not disappoint. The sound clarity is phenomenal and even while making and receiving calls, while talking I do not have to scream for the person on the other end to understand me. The unit is great and I highly suggest this unit to anyone looking for bluetooth as a streaming option and wanting phone capabilities so that your not distracted while driving. Excellent buy for the money.

    Pros: Good sound and receive clarity when using the phone feature and also when streaming music from Pandora or music you have stored in your smart phone.

    Cons: None yet.

    This is a new purchase; there has been insufficient time to evaluate its overall performance. While I enjoy the Bluetooth capability, I have been informed that, to people on the other line, I sound like I'm speaking within a tunnel. I have attempted to adjust the mic gain with minimal effect. The only other 'con' thus far is that the volume control knob is so sensitive I find it being depressed to activate a change in settings when all I wanted to do was adjust the volume. Hopefully, I will find a way around this and move on. As for installation into a '98 Corolla, it went in with no need for adapters; but the plastic ring provided around the faceplate does not fit in the dash opening.

    Crutchfield makes things effortless. Ordered stereo. Got stereo. Also got everything I needed for installation: wiring harness, dash adapters and anything else necessary. Instructions are simple and easy to follow. Took maybe a half-hour to install, but only because I decided to try my hand at soldering the wires instead of just using a crimp connector. The only way it could have been easier was if they actually sent someone to install it for me while I sat back and watched. Love Crutchfield!!!

    Pros: Everything.

    Cons: Not a single con to report.

    I bought this while it came on sale at Crutchfield. I could clearly see that the Toyota matrix factory receiver was so substandard especially so after listening to my recently BMW Sound. I did run into some installation roadblocks but Crutchfield tech support was pretty patient and at the end the task of replacing the receiver did not seem very daunting. As for the receiver itself it made my factory speakers sound so much better. The buttons are a little too small and not too intuitive. BT audio is also good although it gets confused when both my wife and travel together with 2 iPhones. But we can live with that. The I got too greedy and rushed towards replacing the stock speakers with the Dxi650 hoping the sound is going to get even better. Clearly, the Dxi looks very well made compared to the paper cone stock speakers. Surprisingly enough after replacing one of the stock speakers,, the Polk sounded very muted even after 6 hours of break in time. Nevertheless, this does not change my quality rating of the Sony receiver which still remains at 5 stars.

    Pros: Awesome 3D sound compared to stock unit on Toyota matrix Good BT audio including YouTube audio CD audio is superb.

    Cons: iPhone BT call audio quality is poor Buttons just too small and not intuitive

    Was looking to upgrade my stereo in my vehicle and a friend recommended I look at Crutchfield. I went onto the site, entered my info about the vehicle and what features I needed, and the top selection was the Sony MEX-BT3000P. I got it a few days later after I ordered it and had it in my vehicle by week end. Instructions were spot-on and splicing the cable together was also spot-on. Sound quality is excellent and Bluetooth functionality is the best!

    Pros: Master Install Checklist was awsome. Had all the info for my vehilce.

    Cons: Don't need the remote. I mean, I'm right there.

    I am extremely pleased I ordered this online and it made certain I had everything I needed to make the install in my 2004 Buick Century virtually seamless. I was replacing the stock stereo with this one. The directions were clear and concise everything I needed was sent. The Stereo works fantastic and sounds great as well I connected the XM radio at the same time because the radio was XM ready, It was also BTand pandora compatible and has a Aux outlet on the front. What more can I ask for. Thank you.

    Pros: Easy install, Great sound, Excellent options, Looks good, the price was less then the Sony web site.

    Cons: None

    awesome!

    Great radio, everything worked flawlessly, took about an hour and a half to remove the old unit and then install the Sony. Was streaming Pandora from my Android in no time, XM was a breeze as is streaming from my other devices and using it with my Tom Tom! Very happy.

    Pros: Easy to install, make sure to order the install kit!

    Cons: None

    All the perks without the hefty price tag!

    I had been looking to upgrade the stereo in my 2001 Honda Civic and wanted the perks of some new technology (Pandora, Bluetooth, etc...) The decks I had been looking at were much more expensive than this one. My Dad suggested searching the make/model of my car on Crutchfield, so I did and came across this deck. It had all the upgrades I was looking for at a fraction of the price. Shipping was very quick and within 3 days from ordering my Dad had the new deck installed for me! After using it for a few weeks I am so happy with the purchase. Everything works great and it didn't break the bank. Great deal from Crutchfield and Sony! Thank you!

    Pros: Pandora, Bluetooth, Great Price

    Cons: None

    Had an ancient add on satellite radio unit go bad and wanted an inexpensive replacement headunit that would have that capability. In addition to meeting my basic needs, this Sony also added Bluetooth and Pandora access.

    Pros: Cost, sound quality, added features I didn't have before

    Cons: A little complicated for me to figure out how to use.

    Great Bluetooth and eq

    This is a great radio at a great price. The install was very easy, took about 30 minutes. Bluetooth works great and was extremely easy to pair with my phone.

    Pros: Bluetooth works great and was very easy to get working with my phone. There are quite a few settings that you can change to get the radio to work the way you would like it to.

    Cons: Tuner signal is a little weak but it may be my car antenna.

    Great value
