Sony XAV-AX5000 Media Receiver Reviews
Well...I paid a grand for what was supposed to be one of the better Android Auto compatible stereos on the market for my 08 JK.
PROS: Fast, Easy Install. No brainer work.
Plug and play installation.
Looks clean and sounds great. Functions work good 95% of the time .
CONS: Android Auto will drive you insane. No matter the cable length, brand, or style of the cable Android Auto is borderline useless on this device. I bought a dozen different cables all 3ft or less and after replacing a cable the slightest jiggle or movement during use it will disconnect, reboot the device, or freeze, or some days when you really need it like I the middle of NYC trying to navigate traffic it does all at the same time.
Been waiting for Sony to fix this issue seeing many have complained...but Sony seems to not care they ripped off the honest people who trust their product. Thanks for the glitchy $1000 music box I got 3 more months to pay for.
I purchased the Sony XAV-AX5000 through Quadratec along with their JEEP JK wiring harness kit. Based on Quadratec's installation video for the Sony, I was led to believe this was all plug and play. The harness kit did not come with the USB adapter they showed off in the video which is supposed to keep my existing center console USB connected to the radio to allow android auto to function with my phone. I ran both USB's to the glove-box instead. I was also disappointed the kit wasn't set up to use my stock hands free microphone.
I installed the Brandmotion 9002-8848 backup camera kit at the same time. The backup-camera works perfectly after getting the harness options figured out...
The harness several spare wires for different options that go with the Sony. The instructions regarding these wires are not real helpful. Some wiring diagrams would help. I did figure it out after burning a couple brain cells.
After getting it all put together I ran through all the basic function. Most things work as expected and the sound is terrific. Better than the stock stereo in my JEEP. However the Android Auto feature does not work. We have the LG-G7 which is one of the phones that is supposed to work with Android Auto so I think it's the Sony. I have read a few other reviews stating they too had trouble with this feature on the Sony. This may also be related to the vague instructions that come with the harness kit.
It’s an easy installation to perform if you get the Quadratec wiring harness. Although, it says it only takes an hour, if you are completely new to cars then expect about two 1/2 to three hours. There’s a YouTube video from Quadratec as well which is useful, but I ignored the part where it suggests to cut the top prongs in the steel head unit holder; you can just bend them upward. Also, I don’t have a built in USB in the console like some other people on here, so everything in the kit was sufficient for the install.
There are two gotchas during install, however, which was—
* the Bluetooth mic routing
* the USB cord placement
I went through the steering compartment on the driver side to the radio in order to mount the mic on the driver side visor, and I didn’t want to make any more modifications to the plastic molding so I routed both USB cords through the glovebox...
In addition, I installed a backup camera simultaneously and it works seemlessly. I hooked the rear camera to the cig lighter port so it’s always on, and the feature on the radio that allows you to view the rear camera while in drive works, as well. Moreover, when you go in reverse the unit automatically switches to rear camera. Make sure you connect the two, marked rear camera wires on the harness, though.
Bluetooth works, call sound is clear, Apple car play is fantastic and makes this unit miles beyond the factory radio. Android Auto works as well. To me this unit was worth it.
