Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ make it easier than ever to use any smartphone’s helpful features on the road. Simply connect the smartphone to the XAV-AX100 to see everything the driver wants on their phone, but displayed on the large touch screen. Easily access the favorite iPhone features just by talking to Siri. Music, maps, phone calls, and messages are all under the driver’s control. Use voice commands to dictate messages, take phone calls or get help from Google Maps, even control music playback, just by talking. Get directions in real time without the driver ever needing to take their hands off the wheel. Easily navigate to a destination, or search for nearby stop-overs mid-journey. If the driver tells Siri where they are going, Siri will provide real-time directions while driving. And Google Maps can give directions and traffic updates whenever the driver needs them the most.
Everything the driver needs is a quick tap away, thanks to the 6.4″ full-color touch screen. The ergonomic rotary dial makes operation distraction-free. Turn it to control volume, or push the integrated button to launch sound control menus. Alternatively, holding the button enables the use of voice commands. A rear-view camera can be fed and displayed on the screen, along with customizable guidelines that help the driver back in safely.
Multiple customization options let the user adapt and tailor the audio experience to any preference, such as with the 10-band graphic equalizer. And with the built-in 4 x 55 W amplification, music sounds clear even at high volumes. Advanced signal processing from the 4 x 55 W Dynamic Reality Amp 2 removes interference, so music sounds clear and detailed. Even when the volume is turned way up. Sound waves are directional, so if the car’s speakers are in the doors or under the dash, the audio may seem muddy or unclear. Dynamic Stage Organizer adjusts the signal, improving the stereo positioning so music sounds like it’s coming from the dashboard. With the three pre-outs, adding components is an option, such as extra amplifiers and sub-woofers.
