The Sony XAV-70BT is one of two in-dash A/V head units (XAV-60, XAV-70BT) released in spring 2010. As an upgrade, the unit adds along Bluetooth wireless technology with HFP, A2DP, and AVRCP, thereby allowing for hand-free calling and wireless music streaming. Plus it hosts a larger 7” WVGA motorized and touchscreen display panel with an improved GUI with larger buttons, an easier-to-use menu, and a simplified playback screen that lists all song metadata and album artwork. Like its weaker sibling, the XAV-70BT relies on an abundance of input options, including a single-disc slot for playing DVDs or CDs, a USB interface for listening to a digital music player, Satellite/HD Radio compatibility, rear view camera / parking break compatibility, and iPod/iPhone compatibility.
