Lovely unit, had to get a special wiring harness for my old chrysler voyager (pc9-407).
Fitted in 10 minutes, I haven't installed a headunit for a good 20 years, but I didn't need to worry, the hardest part was working out where to route the mic lead.

The Sony head unit menu system is Intuitive and this works great with my iPhone 4S, I'll give the wife's iPhone 5 a try later to see if any things not working.
Obviously can't make an In-depth review yet, as I've only had this for an hour. But it's looking good.

(update) 14th Aug 2013
After a good few months using this Sony I can honestly state that I'm very happy with the purchase.
I got round to using the wifes iPhone 5 and again I'm happy to say that there were no issues with it at all.
Star rating increased to 5

General:
The unit does feel better quality, compared to some of the units in its class, eg. I also had a look at the Pure range at Halfords but based on their reviews and the touch and feel I preferred the Sony, True the plastics used on Sony units are starting to look and feel cheaper than they did, but its still better in my opinion, than other non branded units.

Phone/hands free ( The main reason for purchasing the unit was for the hands free ) :
I have used this with a Lumia 800, with no issues at the moment.
The last Sony unit I had was around 7 years old with build in mic. it was just ok at making calls, and calls weren't always clear, due to the built in mic.
This unit has a separate mic. and after making calls on the motorways at 80mph , the calls have been clear. The mic has 3 levels of settings low/med/high. The preset keys 1 to 6 on the unit can be used to store quick dial numbers from your phone, This feature is Very useful. One of the most important features I think, is the fact that you have 2 volume settings one for the general music side and one for the phone so if you have music on very low or high , when the phone receives a call it will ring at whatever volume level you have set for the phone. If you receive a call, at the end of the call the unit reverts back to whatever was playing before the call. However if you make a call directly from the stereo using its keys , you have to physically set it back to cd/tuner/usb. You can make and receive calls from your phone and once the calls end, your music will restart, without touching the stereo. There are no quick one touch keys for cd/usb/tuner, you have to select the source button and use the control knob to select. will also list your last dialed and received calls from your phone.

The good - I've lived with this for a few months and it's in a vehicle that only gets occasional use. There a re lots of great features e.g. iPod controls, remote control, hands-free mike, seamless bluetooth connections to older Android and Apple phones, customisable colours etc...

The not so good - my one big gripe is about its ability to clearly pick up mainstream radio stations. I bought this to replace a budget <£50 radio unit that flawlessly picked up radio stations but had no additional features. This has the features that I want but is constantly struggling to clearly pick up Radio 4, Radio 2. (Or maybe it just doesn't like my taste in listening)

I bought this as I have a Sony Xperia Z1. I haven't really bought into apple products and have used sony for many years. The bluetooth side of things is great on this unit as far as syncing with my phone playing music etc I bought a harness for installation so I can use steering controls to skip tracks on my phone. Sound quality great, It looks good the colour changing is nice and there are a few sound enhancing modes that work a treat. Phone calls are easy to use and sync my phonebook easily enough.

Negatives : the sony app remote.. Doesn't read out my SMS messages and what annoys me is my Sony phone and Sony stereo Don't allow all the features advertised. yet my girlfriends Iphone does. I bought this particular model for that SMS feature. I'm aware it's a result of a new version of android not having full support of the app/stereo but that frankly is not good enough.

Great stereo, the Bluetooth is so handy and makes playing music and using hands free a joy. Installation was easy, setup very straight forward. Would recommend this, excellent quality for a very affordable price.

It's just lovely in every way. Great radio! And I can plat all my iTunes match music from my phone as I drive along.

When it first arrived I was a bit afraid it would be too difficult and distracting to operate while driving, but my lovely son came round and fitted it for me and showed me how to use it and it's not nearly as complicated as it sound when you read the instructions.
