[Visions Electronics] Sony (XAV-AX100) Android Auto / Apple Car Play - DBL DIN - Car Deck / Stereo - $298.00 (reg. $569.99) - YMMV - IN-STORE

*********AMAZON DEAL IS DEAD, STILL AVAILABLE AT VISIONS (IN-STORE ONLY), left link for Amazon below for reference/specs ************
https://www.amazon.ca/Sony-XAVAX100-Sur ... 0769&psc=1




If you have an older car and/or base model with a basic/dumb double DIN deck, this android auto / apple car play car deck is on sale for almost half price, much better than getting a "no name" car deck with a "forked" version of android auto/apple car play.

Can be linked with backup camera, built-in Bluetooth for calling/music play back and the rest of that "jazz".

Thread Summary
Check Crutchfield's compatibility checker. It will tell you what additional accessories you may need. I installed into 2008 VW Rabbit, and needed a trim, antenna adapter, and a wiring harness. Depending on whether you want to retain steering wheel control, the wiring harness can add a bit of a cost.

Great price for a stereo that still has a volume knob (becoming exceedingly rare).

Too bad I had already ordered a JVC unit from Sonic Electronix a couple days ago. Good thing tho is they include the wiring harness and metra install kit for free.

It was $269 USD on Wednesday at Bestbuy.com (US) and I seriously considered driving down to the US to get it, but it unfortunately went back up the next morning. Great price.

Also wondering this, Amazon shipping 1-2 months kinda sucks. If I got it from Visions would I be able to return it as easy if it didn't work with my car though? Leaning towards Amazon just because it's so easy to get refunds.

yeah, my bro purchased it via GE plus extra $20 off coupon ($249.99), hasn't shipped out yet, but unfortunately it's already been passed onto BB for processing so couldn't cancel the order Disappointed But Relieved Face

I say place the order via Amazon, better return policy and they wont throw some weird re-stocking fees at you like a lot of these comp sites/stores do. I have also ordered lots of stuff in the past which said shipping in 1-2mths, but ended up shipping like 1-2weeks later.

I can't seem to find it on visions, got a link?

Here is a listing of sony head units on their website:

https://www.visions.ca/Catalogue/Catego ... brandId=77
https://www.visions.ca/catalogue/catego ... u=XAVAX100

In-store only and from my experience with Visions, they generally don't have stock of their sale items in Calgary at least.

They don't state it has Android Auto in the title for the XAVAX100 model but if you scroll down you'll see it.

The XAVAX200 model is the exact same with satellite radio for an extra $200...
