This deal was frontpage last week and has just come back.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony...Id=5664822

$269.99+tax, includes free installation (scheduled at checkout). Free shipping.

This is "wirecutter's" favorite android auto / carplay receiver:

Reviews are very positive overall.

Does not have wireless android auto or carplay, or HD radio.

I have this head unit. And I just wish it had a better screen. The screen is too dim for bright sunlight, and the viewing angles on the screen are kind of terrible. However, the software is top notch and Carplay/Android Auto is the future. Just wish the future had a better quality screen.

you need to pay $50 installation kit and $17 harness. so it would cost $334 plus tax

If you want full-out touchscreen, the ax5000 or ax3000 are great options.

For some people, the mechanical knob is a big selling point of the ax100.

Very tempting, but not every store offers installation apparently. Closest Best Buy with installation is over 50 miles away

I assume you have to buy the faceplate adapter, wiring harness, etc, as well?

This is just the radio with free installation. Yes, you will still need to buy any additional parts your vehicle requires.

The cost of the installation equipment depends on your car.

My understanding is also that you can bring, say, a trim kit you purchased on amazon, for them to use in the installation.

You also need to do your research on whether the installation hardware best buy offers you will support whatever factory features you care about in your car (backup camera, steering wheel controls, etc.) and if not, then source your own adapters.

Of course, you can also not get it installed at Best Buy. It is still a great deal at $270 even without the free installation.

Do you know the difference between the ax5000 and the ax3000 that Best Buy is offering for $300 now? Thanks!

Would I be able to call and get an exact price of the extras needed? Trying to figure out if it's worth doing myself.

If you start the checkout it will show you what extras bestbuy will suggest for the installation.

I would recommend you look around online for other people who have replaced the stereo in the same model car as yours to see if there were any extra installation bits they made use of.

You can also see what installation accessories crutchfield.com would recommend getting for your car for this unit.
