Grab Sony's CarPlay and Android Auto head unit for just under $300 today
Right now you can pick up Sony's XAV-AX100 CarPlay / Android Auto head unit (opens in new tab) for just $299.87, which is about $100 less than it normally sells for. This double-din radio has a 6.4-inch touchscreen and uses the CarPlay interface when an iPhone is connected and Android Auto for Android-powered smartphones. Both interfaces allow for you to use a custom skin displaying the content of your connected phone to complete tasks like navigation, calls, SMS, and more.
You'll need to have a vehicle that has a double-din slot, which not all vehicles can accommodate. Additionally, you will need some wiring harnesses (opens in new tab), adapters for steering wheel controls (opens in new tab), and more. Consult a local professional installer if you're not comfortable completing the job yourself.

Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.
I have one of these. Very good unit! No Siri over Bluetooth though. I think that's called Siri eyes free.
