**Some are reporting no code needed. Great deal either way right? Thanks.

I was about to purchase this from CL today and decided to check Fry's. They had a hidden price so I added it to cart. The price was decent, but still more than I wanted to pay. Then Honey tried multiple codes and dropped it down $115. I'm sorry, I didn't write down the code, but if you use Honey, it should work for you. If anyone can tell me how I can check which code Honey used, I'll update this thread.

I just installed this particular unit in my car about 2 weeks ago. I finally chose this unit over the newer wireless car play version because I always charge my phone while driving and the idea of wireless is nice, but not so practical for me. I also chose this unit over the Chinese android auto that can perform Apple Carplay because I wanted something that will just work out of the box without me having to mess around in order to get it working the way I like it.

The resistive touch screen is responsive. I like the availability of the physical buttons and knob, it allows for easier navigation of the head-unit. Carplay works like it should, it launches as soon as the cable is plugged into the phone. Install was simple, just match up the wire colors. Go to Crutchfield to see what items you need for your particular car.

For those that do not know, only certain apps will work with Carplay, (most popular music apps, apple maps). Waze, Google Maps, Netflix, name your app here, will not work. Music apps will work in the background while you launch some other app in the foreground. Once Carplay app kicks in, with the exception of the music apps, your phone will be mirrored with the head-unit. For example, when launching Apple Maps, your phone and the head unit will display apple maps, if you use your phone to check the weather/look at bitcoin prices, the apple maps on the head unit will go away. Or if you launch an app via the head unit, whatever you are doing on your phone will instantly go away and it'll launch that app on your phone. You can turn off the display on your phone and the head-unit will continue to work with whatever apps you are using.

However, the above cons can be remedied by jail-breaking your phone and installing an app called "Carbridge". Carbridge allows you to launch any/most apps independently on the head-unit and the phone. You can have Waze on the head unit and bitcoin prices(netflix, amazon video, etc etc) on the phone or vice versa.

Apple have mentioned that Waze and Google Maps will be officially supported in the future. Update to the latest firmware from Sony.

In addition, the latest official firmware from Sony allows "The attention screen displayed at startup will close automatically" after 10 seconds or so.

I wish you could remove the face plate for this stereo. I take the train to work so I can't have a nice stereo in my car that doesn't have removable face plate.

Honey coupon chrome extension tried 13 codes for me, none of which discounted the order below the already discounted price of $248.

I could have swore it only gave me a price of $350ish after adding to cart then Honey lowered it, but I may be mistaken. Thanks for your help.

Don't live in a great neighborhood so I bought this last week for the double-DIN stereo I just installed in my car:

Haven't received it yet, however

Are these better than the android headunits going for a little over 200 dollars? I can confirm that there is no code needed and it shows a price of 228 and final price of 246 with tax.
