If you are like me, a technology enthusiast who owns a car that is almost 10 years old … It is very likely that you are a little disappointed that you cannot use all the new toys that the new vehicles of the factory bring.
Specifically, the multimedia screens 'Touch' and the functions of Android Auto or Apple Car Play, with all the associated benefits.
However, it seems you don't need to feel that way forever! (Or at least you don't need to change your car.) Since there are already several third-party devices to solve this problem… Still, it seems that Sony will now launch the most interesting, but also cheaper, solution for this problem.
First, with a 9 "screen, here we have a massive device.
After all, it is considerably more space than direct rivals offer! However, do not think that it will be the cheap product, since all the rumors suggest a price of around $ 600. (The rival devices cost around € 1000. Therefore, it is not a big inconvenience).
Therefore, the Sony XAV-AX8000 can be a great purchase for some of the drivers stuck in the past. Allow an Android or iOS smartphone to connect to the screen using a cable or Bluetooth.
This will allow you to access Android Auto or Apple CarPlay on a screen significantly larger than your smartphone. In addition, you can use Google Assistant or Apple I served to perform some voice commands.
In short, you can use your phone's navigation (GPS), enr or receive messages, play multimedia content, etc. Basically, you will have a tablet right in the middle of your car.
Unfortunately, the Sony XAV-AX8000 is not yet available in the market. However, you can request to be notified when orders are open. (Here)
