Connect with Android Auto & enjoy seamless navigation***
Android Auto extends the Android platform into the car in a way that’s purpose-built for driving. It enables user to get directions in real time without ever taking drivers hands off the wheel. It further navigates easily to the end destination, or search for nearby stopovers mid-journey with a simple intuitive interface and powerful new voice actions that’s designed to minimize distraction. It automatically brings useful information organized into simple cards that appear when needed, for directions, music, messaging and more.
XAV-AX5000 is ergonomically designed with key terminal that gives instant access to the basic operation that includes source selections and sound adjustments while minimizing distractions.
The rear chassis is designed with single-DIN dimensions that give enough room to store connected cable harnesses, steering wheel control adopter, and more. The XAV-AX5000 boasts 23% shorter depth in comparison with the XAV-AX100.
Easy access to iPhone features with Apple CarPlay
With Apple CarPlay, one can use iPhone in the car in a smarter, safer way (Maps not available in Apple CarPlay in India yet). CarPlay seamlessly integrates iPhone with the car audio’s display and controls. Now the user can make phone calls, access their music, send and receive messages and more while staying focused on the road.
17.6 cm (6.95) Bezel-less Flush Surface Display with Capacitive Touch Screen
XAV-AX5000 has flush mount capacitive touch screen resulting in an astonishingly flat, bezel-less and beautiful display. One can navigate through maps, sort through playlists, and make phone calls. All this can be done from a smooth, bezel-less display that integrates seamlessly with car’s dashboard. The 17.6 cm (6.95) screen ensures everything is easy to use, and wakes up 2.5 times as fast as previous models, so one can get on the road faster.
Quick Wake Up
The latest AV receiver’s quick wake up design boasts more than double the speed for activation in comparison to current products. It is ready to hit the road soon after ignition is turned on.
High power sound with EXTRA BASS™ Circuitry*****
The EXTRA BASS™ works to overcome engine noise and reproduce clear punchy sound at any volume level. It incorporates 2-mode boost steps that allows for both delicate and heavy boost settings. A built-in 4-channel amplifier delivers 55 watts x 4(max. at 4 ohms) output power with DRA2 (Dynamic Reality Amp 2) power IC.
The new XAV-AX5000 also features the DSO (Dynamic Stage Organizer) which creates vivid sound image as if there were speakers on the dashboard. The 10-band equalizer (EQ10) with 10 pre-sets provides easy and effective frequency adjustment for various listening environments. It also supports Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) Audio File Compatibility (via USB terminal only) which is an audio format similar to MP3, but with the difference that it compresses without any loss in quality.
Rear View Camera Ready
The image of a connected rear view camera is seen when the vehicle’s transmission lever is shifted to the R (Reverse) position or when tapping the Rear Camera icon in the home screen. The rear camera helps view its feed through the screen, along with customisable guidelines that help user back in safely.
Dual USB Ports
Thanks to dual USB ports, the user can now hook up various storage devices to play from any music library while connecting smartphone for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. For future expandability, the 3-pre out connectivity builds a full acoustic system including a subwoofer, a mono amplifier and 4-channel amplifier for even louder and powerful sound reproduction.
XAV-AX5000 will be available through car accessories shops and car showrooms across India.
