Bluetooth® lets your radio do more

Bluetooth isn't just about hands-free calling. Sony's XAV-68BT DVD receiver adds audio streaming and control to the mix, giving you a wireless link between your mobile device and the receiver. If your iPhone® has Siri, you'll be able to access it through the receiver just by speaking, and hear Siri's response through the car's speakers. And if you're a Pandora® fan with an Android device, you can pair your phone to the XAV-68BT for Pandora control — no need for wires.

Sony XAV-68BT

The XAV-68BT offers a crisp and attractive interface.


iPhone® and Android™ control

You can plug your iPod, iPhone, or Android phone into the receiver's front USB input for direct control and playback of your music. Or insert a CD or DVD loaded with MP3 or WMA music files for hours of audio entertainment. For video entertainment, slide in a DVD or plug in a USB device to enjoy movies or videos when you're parked.

Optimize your audio

Everybody's familiar with the annoying sound of an underpowered factory radio turned up too loud — no such problem with this Sony. Its powerful amp combines with advanced circuitry to make your discs and digital music sound their best. You can adjust the EQ3 3-band equalizer to optimize the acoustics in your vehicle, or quickly access the eight preset tone curves to adjust your sound on the fly.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

This Sony radio displays a "0" instead of "12" for the hour on its clock. Sony is aware of this, but currently there's no fix for this display quirk.

Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger.

    Was very easy to install. The Bluetooth audio streaming is crisp and clear, especially when used for phone calls. The settings allow me to adjust the dimmer setting for when I turn on my headlights. The "screen saver" is actually the demo mode, which can be turned off in the settings menu.

    Pros: Easy to install, bluetooth works fantastic.

    Cons: If you have your phone attached with Bluetooth while watching a dvd, it restarts the movie from the beginning after your call. Unable to change the background.

    This was put into our 2001 Honda Odyssey and it fits great - after filing down the assembly screws supplied with the install kit. The wiring harness and wire connectors bought from Crutchfield made the install incredibly easy (this is the 8th radio I've installed over 20 years). We love the radio, although it is hard to see in direct sunlight. The bluetooth interface (the main reason we bought it) is great, although it takes some playing with it to do the initial connection. We didn't replace any speakers, so the sound is as good as expected, although the sound level between the streaming BT and the radio and the CD player are much different, which is quite annoying, but not a deal breaker. We are really glad we choose a touch screen radio over a traditional one.

    Pros: Great bluetooth connection looks good works well strong radio signal

    Cons: learning curve to use

    Great Upgrade

    The family was going on a multi state road trip so I finally decided to upgrade the factory head unit on my 2002 Ford Explorer EB with factory sub. The Sony XAV-68BT fit the criteria: video, bluetooth, compatibility with phones (LG, iPhones), compatiblity with factory speakers and sub, compatible with steering wheel controls. The Sony was able to take full advantage of the factory sub and speakers ... the sound was noticeably much better. The video was very clear, even from the third row seats. I had originally bought the PAC SWI-RC but ended up returning because the Sony came with a connector that was compatible with my steering wheel controls (analog). Overall, great upgrade to factory head unit.

    Pros: Sound, Video, Built in steering wheel control, Bluetooh compatibility

    Cons: Background is not customizable, Control navigation takes some getting used to

    A very solid value, I couldn't have chosen better.

    I have found this radio to be a fantastic choice. It does everything I want a radio to do, or could want a radio to do, within my price range. It also does it supremely well. I have had exactly zero issues with this radio over two weeks and a 2600 mile road trip. I'm certain a great deal of credit is due my excellent installer, but I don't want to short change the device either.

    After some minimal tinkering with the EQ and the settings (turning off Kiosk mode, etc) I found this thing to be a pleasure to use.

    Pros: Looks like it belongs there in the dash of my 2005 F150 Lariat.

    Cons: It reminds me not to watch DVDs and drive randomly. I would like a way to turn this nonsense off. I know very well not to watch DVDs and drive thanks. Easily fixed with a tap of the OK button, at least for the short term.

    Does it all!

    Works great in my 04 Cobra. BT phone mic works great, video display is outstanding, easy to bypass so you can play dad's while driving. Just ground the wire that is supposed to go to the park brake. Has lots of features at a great price!

    Pros: Best price for features.

    Cons: None

    The first of these units that I got from Crutchfield gave be fits! Had a bad buzzing noise. After working through all possible issues with the tech, we determined the unit was defective. Must have been a bad ground in the unit. Crutchfield sent out the second unit and it worked no problem. Great value for the money. Installed in my wife's car & sounds really good even with the OEM speakers. Big plusses for me were the volume knob and USB in front. Nice display & easy to use.

    Pros: Nice display, easy to use, good sound (it's a Sony!).

    Cons: Build quality on first unit ordered wasted a lot of my time on install.

    nice fit

    This is my first touch screen video receiver so I don't have anything to compare it with. There is a definite noticeable improvement in sound quality over the factory stereo. I have had no issues at all. Bluetooth connected fine and my Iphone 6 works just fine via usb with Pandora. Operation is simple, haven't had to refer to the owners manual yet.

    Pros: Nice sound and usability

    Cons: Clock operation is messed up. 12:01 is displayed as 0:01 and the clock is always wrong with the auto clock setting turned on. I just turned it off and it works fine.

    I bought this to replace the stock radio in my 2009 Volkswagen EOS. I had it installed at a big box store. I bought it specifically because it had a knob for volume control and it had a front USB jack. It looked goo in my car and was very easy to set up but I soon discovered that it had a few serious flaws. First of all the interface was simple to the point of being dull. I am not looking for spaceship flashing lights but a little graphic pizzazz would have been nice. The biggest problem with the interface is that the text for song/artist information was so small. Given the screen real estate, the designers decided to use a font the size a typical Webster's dictionary entry instead of making the text big and readable. Secondly, the controls for audio dynamics did not seem to provide much dramatic change in the quality of the sound. It was plenty loud but there were just three bands of control and I just could not get the system to sound rich and full. I have eight speakers so I thought it should sound better than it did.

    But the thing that finally made me return it was that when I connected to my Bluetooth phone, there was no song or artist information displayed, just the controls to skip to the next song, pause or play. I checked the manual and verified that it said "Song and artist information will not be displayed when connected to a Bluetooth phone" or something like that.

    So I bought a JVC Arsenal KW-V200BT and installed it myself. I love it.(mostly).

    Pros: Nice color, instant on, well made, volume control button, front USB jack

    Cons: Limited sound control , small small text for song information, no song info when connected via Bluetooth,

    Love it

    This unit was a great addition to my 2008 silverado. Install was pretty easy just had to connect a bit of wires and plug them in.

    Pros: Good sound even with my stock speakers. Looks awesome. Bluetooth works great nice and clear on both ends.

    Cons: just wish it did a little more not exactly sure just more. Also doesn't show the info on the screen when you play cd's but thats probably due to the advancing technology.

    nice unit.

    I was looking for a. Double din for my malibu and saw this unit read the reviews and was impressed with good the good reviews so i bought it. Bluetooth connectivity is smooth, the volume is a knob so the screen stays clean. Sound is loud and clear through my stock speakers.

    Pros: Connectivity is excellent Clean oem look Sturdy build

    Cons: The screen is not bright enough for clear daytime use. The settings is a maze to get to make your own adjustments and cuts off your bt connection.

    Looks great in my F250

    The most difficult part was getting the dash off to install the unit but once that was done there was no problem at all. The unit looks great and plays perfectly.

    Pros: Fits like a glove after a couple of very minor modifications to the mounting bracket.

    Cons: Tabs on the mounting bracket had to be removed to get the unit to fit into the dash. This was easily done and in no way affects the performance of the stereo. Interestingly, the bracket instructions say not to remove the tabs but there is no other way to insert the unit into the space unless they are removed.

    This stereo is a great value. It is easy to use/install. The look is great (a little smaller than I originally thought) but its fine. I would recommend this stereo to anyone who wants a good stereo for a cheap price. My only two "unhappiness" factors are the sound quality wasn't as great as I hoped for. However, I'm sure upgrading my speakers could help this. And secondly, the Bluetooth sometimes cuts out and I've had complaints from people on the other end of calls of an echo. Other than these two things it works great

    Pros: affordable looks good easy install handsfree

    Cons: sound quality isn't superb Bluetooth microphone causes echo

    Super easy install in a '98 CRV, love the Pandora interface, separate volume control knob that switches inputs is a great feature. Sounds clear, just need separate subwoffer if you really want thump. Was a perfect companion for a cross-country drive.

    Pros: easy to control everything with well layed out menus and options. For the price, it gives everything you could ask for.

    Right out of the box I was happy. Everything was perfect. The installation was actually quite easy with everything that Crutchfield sent with my new stereo. After installing the stereo, setting it up was no problem. It's everything I was looking for. It looks like it was made for my Nissan Pathfinder. The DVD function is great. (for all you parents out there) play movies while waiting. The Bluetooth function is flawless. I love it. Phone calls come through nice and clear and the mic is small enough where it's not really noticeable. Overall, I'm very pleased. I expected nothing less from Crutchfield and Sony.

    Pros: DVD, Bluetooth, ease of installing, looks, functions.

    Cons: none

    Simple to install, everything I needed came with the package, and it all works perfectly, the first time.

    Pros: Nice, bright screen and intuitive navigation. I don't like all the flashy gadgety stuff, and this has a nice clean UI.

    Cons: Maybe an option to "upload" custom backgrounds and color schemes would be nice?

    I always forget about Sony products inability to play well with others. They design really good products then screw it up somehow. In the case of the in dash unit that I purchased, the unit doesn't do plug and play navigation with an iphone and ANY nav software, or at least any that I have found.I read that GPS drive by motion X would work, but it doesn't. Nothing else seems to either, so that nice big screen just sits there stupid. Its a shame. Musically, it is just fine, even connected to aged factory speakers. I wanted something that had front usb and accessory plugs, and it does. It has a multi function knob, which works well. Since the install required pulling the single din unit and shelf, which required pulling out basically everything except the steering wheel its a good thing. Having to access the back would be insanely difficult, so I'm glad the backup camera and the accessory mike were plugged in during the initial install.

    Pros: Huge improvement in sound over the stock unit,blends in to the console, easy to operate while driving

    Cons: Really lame software interface. Won't let you use Iphone features like GPS or Siri and hands free calling easily. Crappy support if you insist on speaking english

    Nice entry level model

    This deck works exactly as advertised... installation was smooth and easy, instructions were clear.

    Pros: Good value for a deck with Bluetooth calling and audio.

    Cons: It would be nice to be able to change the background image.

    Works great in my 2004 Pilot. My goal was no wires to listen to things from my phone and to display a rear camera, and this fits the bill. Touch screen is functional - there aren't accidental touches. Radio works with way more presets than I will ever use. Had trouble getting the steering wheel controls to work, but customer service helped me get them up and running.

    Pros: Does what I want it to. Functional touchscreen. Seems reasonably well built.

    Cons: Volume knob frequently fell off during installation. Slow startup and switch to rear camera. If you reverse quick, you might be done reversing before the camera image appears.

    Fantastic Upgrade for my 2005 Honda

    I wanted to upgrade my radio to listen to audiobooks without burning to CDs. The customer support in selecting the right radio was superb. We had a question about installation on a Sunday afternoon and once again phone support was just great. I am really enjoying the sound. Haven't used all the functions yet but am looking forward to trying all the bells and whistles.

    Pros: Great display. I hired someone to install the unit and he said it was easy.

    Cons: None

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter and installed it for her. No problem installing it in a 2005 Honda civic ex. The Crutchfield instructions are incomplete though. I researched you tube for a better installation instruction.

    Pros: Fits perfectly and looks great

    Cons: None as of this time.

    Good for the price. Installed in the wifes prius well with the dash kit. Wiring was easy. No steering wheel adapter required

    Pros: Well made simple to install

    Cons: Menues and icon displays are a bit clunky. Lacking some wow factor in those regards
