Love the screen

Great radio I like the big screen but was hesitant about blocking the reminder of the dash but worked ok. Difficult to get all set screws due to proximity of screen to control panel So far so good though

Exceeded expectations

I've been into car audio since I was a teenager. Radios, amps, subs, I've lost count on how many car audio set ups I have had. This Sony head unit exceeded my expectations. By far, it is the best head unit I have ever had. If you are on the fence with this one, jump! You will not regret it.

Pros: Very intuitive. Easy to install. Best hands free / Bluetooth sound I have experienced.

Cons: None

It's like a whole new car again...

When my wife and I started getting the "itch" to shop for a new kiddie hauler, we quickly realized that we were both drawn to the tech in these new vehicles more than the other amenities that they offered. We have a 2011 Toyota Sienna SE. We had an aftermarket Kenwood DNX6990HD in there already but it lacked Apple Carplay and was clucky with Bluetooth at times. This Sony XAV-AX8100 breathed new life into our minivan. The added output power made the stock speakers come to life. The Apple Carplay was fast and responsive. The bootup time of the radio was nearly immediate. There are no in-depth customization features in this radio so if you are looking to build a competition system with deep customization options look elsewhere. However, this unit is leagues above just being "average" in performance. The screen is snappy and responsive. The display is sharp. I haven't hooked up my reverse camera to this yet or tried the HDMI port as I just installed it last night with the excellent support from Crutchfield. I sat in the van for over an hour just enjoying the clarity of this system over our previous radio. This is wired CarPlay/Android Auto but it wasn't a dealbreaker for me as it also charges the phone while in use. I'm using the Axxess adaptor to retain steering controls. NOTE: Sony offers a mono subwoofer out so you'll need a mono-to-stereo adaptor if you're connecting an amp or powered subwoofer. All-in-all this was an excellent and affordable option for our family.

Pros:  Easy to install  Extremely adjustable floating panel for positioning the screen perfectly  Fast bootup time  Excellent power output  Responsive display  HDMI port is on the bottom of the head unit - not behind it  PRICE  Did I say PRICE already?

Cons: Very minor cons:  Mono sub out - needs an adapter  Not many wallpapers on-board (can upload your own though)

I love the head unit, the only thing I wish was different is the screen brightness. When wearing sunglasses it's especially difficult to see the screen clearly. Otherwise it's a great upgrade.

Very nice head unit, screen size is the perfect in between size - large enough to read easily, but not so big that it dominates the dash. Sony's software is straightforward and clean, and Android Auto (my primary use) works very well. Touchscreen is very responsive, particularly for a resistive screen. I've removed one star for the lack of screen brightness - it matters only in direct sunlight.

Pros: Screen size, software, physical buttons

Cons: Dim screen, single USB
