I have the non cd/dvd version of this receiver (XAV-AX100) and it's great. I've got the usb routed through to my center console which I was able to find a header built just for this purpose. I also have the mic routed through my glove box to the center console where it is just resting. I've used this receiver for about 9 months pretty much exclusively using Android Auto for Waze and Spotify. Waze has always been pretty solid on Android Auto, but Spotify needed a little more developing (which it received) before I thought it was fully functional. The six touch limiter that Android Auto has without the parking brake really really kills the experience though. Anyway, issues with Android Auto shouldn't reflect poorly on this unit at all. The actual UI is pretty good and the bluetooth functionality is way more reliable than my previous unit. I do not have aftermarket speakers in my car so I can't speak as to how well that works, but this must be able to push pretty far as I usually have the volume set to 25 and I would be reluctant to go much higher than that as it is pretty damn loud. I will say though that for whatever reason I've never really been able to get the mic to work all of the time. I was able to respond to some texts soon after I got it, but either through the normal UI or Android Auto I've never been able to get the mic to work for calls. The person on the other end of the call can't hear me. I've not taken the unit out again to make sure the connections are solid because this functionality is no longer important to me as I'm not driving across town for my job anymore. One of my friends had one of these in his Mk5 GTI and it worked so well that I just had to get one for my Rabbit.

I have this head unit and I love it. Android Auto and CarPlay works great. For Android Auto make sure that the hand brake cable is wired in correctly or to the ground otherwise you can't get the Android Auto setup to complete. I went for this unit over the XAV-AX100 because it has CD functionality which I use occasionally and the XAV-AX5000 because this has a volume dial - I HATE Vol Up/Down buttons. I doesn't support CD text like my older Sony XAV-612BT did but it's not a big deal. The touch screen is very response and is a major improvement over my old Sony XAV-612BT. Make sure you update the firmware. I've updated mine twice since I got it. The latest firmware added a timeout to the warning message that the unit display's every time it boots up, previously it stayed there until you press the close button. Annoying AF. As the unit only has 1 USB port on the back via short cable, I recommend running the included USB A extension cable to the glove box or a easily removable piece of the trim where you can easily access it. This is so you can use a thumb stick to upgrade the firmware or change from a lightning to USB Micro or USB C cable easily depending on the phone your attaching. My unit has a quirk in that it doesn't seem to keep time even though I've correctly wired in the constant 12V. I've seen other people complaining about this too online so I don't think it's just my unit. It does support the RDS Clock Time feature though. So I leave my unit on a radio station that sends RDS CT and set "Clock Time" to On in the settings. I used a aftermarket GM to ISO harness and then a ISO to Sony harness from Aerpro. This let me keep steering wheel controls too. I highly recommend this unit if you've got a older car that you want to add Android Auto or CarPlay to and have a double DIN slot.

Can confirm for anyone on the fence that my AX100 is a great piece of kit. It's a very simplistic deck but when Sony sets out to make something that "just works" they've absolutely nailed it on this generation. Even though it's a resistive screen it's pretty responsive.
My use case mostly revolves around FM radio and Android Auto, since my deck is in a 93 Miata. (Any actual phone calls need not apply!)
In particular, in an NA miata this fits great in the 1U brackets everyone sells since it's 1U in the back. I'm still working on a bezel fit solution but it looks just fine in there where many 2U units don't fit at all. It can power all six speakers very cleanly at volumes that work on the freeway top-down, but bass-heads will definitely still want a discrete sub.

I don't believe so, BUT, it DOES run Android Auto as well as Apple Car Play, so it essentially becomes an extension of Android. I think that's probably better than just running full Android OS on it. Though I can't say I've experienced something like that to compare. This is supposed to be one of the best for the price range.

I got a AX100 for less than 300 bucks from Fry's. They occasionally carry some insane HU discount.

Honestly, if I were to go with a Sony head unit, I'd rather have the XAV-AX5000. Better button layout and slightly larger screen. Fewer moving parts to boot.

I bought the XAV-AX200 over the XAV-AX5000 because I didn't like the AX5000's button layout and use of vol up/down button where the AX200 has a volume dial. The only thing that the AX5000 has that I wished the AX200 did have was dual USB ports.

I have a hard time imagining anyone wanting to buy a DVD player in 2018.

I still buy music on CD's because I own it. I can then rip it to my phone and NAS for use there and the CD is a backup. If I want I can sell the CD. I got this head unit because I still buy CD's and I can listen to them on the way home from the store before I rip it and transfer to my phone for use with CarPlay. I'll keep buying music on CD's till they stop making them.

Yeah, I buy CDs too. And I can't think of any good reason why this should have a DVD reader and not a Blu-Ray reader. You would still be able to play CDs. I sure as hell don't want to HAVE to transcode my Blu-Rays to DVD to be able to play them.
