Thanks, just snagged one at the store. This was the price during Black Friday. This is a media player and it will not have a dvd slot. If you are looking for something that plays cd/dvd. This is not it. Look into the ax200 for that. It also doesn't have any video input so I'm not sure how screen mirroring will work. It also doesn't have a video out so you can't really add headrest monitors or any other external monitors. Pretty much if none of that matters to you and you just want android auto/ Apple carplay and all the hands free feature like buetooth, then this is a good system. I wanted Apple carplay and android auto along with a capacitive touch screen so this being on sale $50 less than vs the pioneer 1400nex.. I went ahead with this.

LoL. You can't be that clueless.

You are asking why someone would want a specifically designed bolt-in double din unit instead of having to built a custom retrofit for a tablet? A tablet that lacks:

Steering wheel controls
Analog rearview cameras
FM radio antennas
No driver's phone integration, including but not limited to messaging/calls notifications
The need for tablet's own mobile data / driver's phone hotspot on
Battery management (Most head unit uses capacitor to handle car power cut)
Heat/cold endurance
Visibility in direct sunlight
Fitting car's dash (Most head unit fits a double din space out of the box, not so much for tablets)
Inferior DAC
Inferior or nonexistent speaker amplifier
Multi channel output
Balancing front/rear audio output not available by default
Inferior built in microphone
Can't easily redirect calls from driver's phone
Getting GPS antenna to work through the tablet's internal, either by dismantling the tablet and extending the antenna or pairing the unit with a dedicated bluetooth GPS

Also includes free basic installation! You can get the new Sony ax1000 CarPlay receiver for about the same price on sale. The key difference is that this one has a much bigger screen and dual rear usb inputs. Both have rear camera support. The ax1000 has a volume knob, this one has buttons.

Frys actually does offer free basic installation on this stereo. Which sweeten up the deal. If you go talk to the rep, they should be able to tell you if it fits for your vehicle.

Bought one from Crutchfield a few months back, excellent unit. Made the factory speakers sound a LOT better. The Only downside is that the usb stick that it can read on port 2 is very limited. I'm working with a very old usb stick with 8gb because my newer media won't be recognized.
Very nice price. Absolutely worth it.

There is a backup camera input on the back. You could add a switch to send video from external devices, but not convenient though.

It's on the ad, which you can see on the desktop site or in the store on their screens upfront. I'd post a screenshot but I'm on mobile slick deals app.
