Great but check out compatibility with your mobile cell phone. This is a fantastic piece of kit but i was bitterly disappointed that it is not thoroughly compatible with so many cell telephones. I have a sony xperia z2 and you would think hottest sony telephone and most up-to-date sony car amusement system. It will not examine messages and allow for you to reply or call folks absolutely arms totally free in this mixture. The mirrolink purpose is excellent but when mirrorlink source is picked the sunshine visor microphone does not do the job. Audio excellent is greattop tip examine compatibility prior to you obtain on sony’s web site. Overall even with the troubles i’ve described with my set up i am genuinely impressed with the units other features so i opted to continue to keep it as it appears to be like good, sounds good and does 95% of what i desired it for.

I really love this unit, bought it set up at halfords and it all the things functions even mirror link to htc telephone soi use google maps as my sat nav. Phone side of it very good even reads my contacts.

Wonderful head unit went from 601bt to 602bt. Absolute high-quality in every single part. 2 a long time still operating robust.Here are the specifications for the Sony XAV-602BT Car CD/DVD Multimedia System:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • In-car DVD/CD player with Bluetooth, MirrorLink and fully removable 6.1″ WVGA front panel
  • 15.6cm (6.1″) WVGA high-res touchscreen control
  • MirrorLink smartphone connectivity
  • Built-in mic for hands-free calls

Applying bluetooth audio is high-quality, but audio by way of usb crackles and cuts out. Doesnt look to entirely do what it says on the tin. Applying bluetooth audio is great, but audio by way of usb crackles and cuts out alot. Its pretty much like sending the video clip sign and audio jointly is a little bit too considerably for usb to handle. Will be speaking to sony to obtain out why. So for now its just finding employed for bluetooth audio, which can make mirrorlink form of pointless.

Actually good device, but does have downsides. . I purchased this device in july, so i have experienced it 4 months now. I am extremely pleased with it in normal. The audio is fantastic on it, the display screen is simple to navigate and has many capabilities and options to engage in with. I fitted into my 2005 ford target titanium, this was a real suffering to do as i experienced to buy all the components from halfords, but they wouldn’t in fact healthy the unit as i hadn’t acquired it from them. Ultimately i received an electrician friend from work to do it for absolutely free, and it only took 10 minutes. So prior to you get, make sure you know an individual who can do it for you. I’m not pretty technically minded, so i are unable to help you with an in depth evaluate, but i should really position out that the mirrorlink wouldn’t work with two phones i have examined on it, they ended up a samsung galaxy s4, and an iphone 5s, so it really is quite useless with the two most preferred telephones on the market at the moment, so if you are buying it for that, never trouble, and when i asked sony about this, they had been absolutely uninterested, but all people understands sony’s customer services is dreadful never they. The telephone handsfree on this device (the key purpose i purchased it) is extremely good nevertheless, and will work beautifully for my needs with the two phones i use. On the full, and discarding the fitting, and mirrorlink restrictions, i am quite contented with the unit.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great value for money!
  • Awesome head unit
  • Using Bluetooth audio is fine, but audio via USB crackles and cuts out

I bought this head unit previous year to substitute the inventory one in my a3 and i am genuinely contented with it. *seem good quality*the sound good quality is terrific, i have it hooked up to my stock car speakers and also an alpine sub and amp. You can fantastic tune the equaliser and listening situation with ease and i genuinely like how straightforward it is to maximize the output to the sub. *mirrorlink*a great deal of men and women complain about the mirrorlink compatibility but actually, is it genuinely difficult to google what telephones are compatible just before you invest in this?. I know that is what i did prior to i shelled out £300+ for it. This functions with my xperia z3 and it also labored with my outdated xperia z flawlessly so compatibility is surely not a dilemma if you are ready to use some widespread sense ahead of paying for. As before long as i get in my car and change on the ignition, it instantly pairs with my cellular phone. Audio sounds really excellent but i believe this is more dependent on the device.

Audio high-quality is extraordinary (considerably far better than an audi symphony) and drives much much more out. Resistive display and absence of dab are the important downsides on this device. Audio good quality is remarkable (a lot far better than an audi symphony) and drives significantly much more out of the twelve bose speakers in my car. Remaining capable to alter the colour leds to match my car is a awesome touch. Car microphone is delicate, even when not mounted in the best posture. Grounding the parking wire (eco-friendly) to the circumstance of the device lets the use of the screen when driving – not sensible to observe videos, but solves the troubles that some apps have when working with mirror link of currently being blocked.

Amazing head unit went from 601bt to 602bt. Absolute quality in every aspect. 2 years still running strong.

Great except for hopeless mirrorlink. Works just fine other than mirrorlink, which was the primary reason for choosing this particular unit, so that i could use my phone’s navigation function on the unit’s screen. Utterly hopeless both with my samsung galaxy s3 (the app crashes as soon as you try to do anything useful) and a sony z1, which worked but the screen drawing was glacially slow. I have now bought, but not yet fitted, the tomtom navigation accessory unit for this specific head unit. Otherwise excellent and a pleasure to use.

Using bluetooth audio is fine, but audio via usb crackles and cuts out. Doesnt appear to completely do what it says on the tin. Using bluetooth audio is fine, but audio via usb crackles and cuts out alot. Its almost like sending the video signal and audio together is a bit too much for usb to handle. Will be speaking to sony to find out why. So for now its just getting used for bluetooth audio, which makes mirrorlink kind of pointless.

I’ve had this unit for 3 months now, i did a lot of research before buying it and it is pretty much exactly what i was expecting. Pros:the sound quality is superb, soooo much better than the stock bose unit in the 350z, with the right wiring it works with the gt pack bose amp and gives the speakers a new life. It looks great, has a very good quality feel to it, the fascia mechanism is nice and sturdy. It has 2 usb ports which i find really useful as i pretty much only listen to my music from a usb stick so thanks to the second usb port being on a pretty long cable i don’t have an ugly piece of plastic sticking out from my front panel all the time, instead it’s hidden away in the centre tunnel cubby. I also found out that i can charge my phone from the front usb port instead of using 12v from the cig lighter. It is pretty fast – very little lag switching between screens, scanning my 16gb stick when i add new songs takes less than a minute, it starts playing in about 10 seconds from starting the car. I’ve fitted a reversing camera in my car and it automatically comes up within about 2 seconds from switching into reverse and has virtually no lag. Bluetooth worked with my galaxy s4 without any issues, good sound quality both ways. The downsides:scrolling can be a bit laggy with the touch screen being the oldschool inductive system but you get used to it with time.

Great but check compatibility with your mobile phone. This is a great piece of kit but i was bitterly disappointed that it is not fully compatible with so many mobile phones. I have a sony xperia z2 and you would think latest sony phone and latest sony car entertainment system. It will not read messages and allow you to reply or call people totally hands free in this combination. The mirrolink function is great but when mirrorlink source is selected the sun visor microphone does not work. Audio quality is greattop tip check compatibility before you buy on sony’s website. Overall even with the issues i’ve described with my setup i am really impressed with the units other functions so i opted to keep it as it looks great, sounds great and does 95% of what i wanted it for.
