Crystal Clear 6.1” Display
The Sony XNV-660BT has a screen unlike any other. Just like the XAV-60 display did when it was released in 2010, this 6.1” display is beautiful, crisp, and clear. Sony’s reputation of high end displays is shown here with this double DIN car stereo. The large 6.1” means the user has plenty of room to watch movies, perform all the operation controls with ease, and retain a fixed front panel. That fixed front face means there are no moving parts and the CD slot that is fast and easy to use. Trust Sony to have a display unlike anything else you have ever seen!

In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Double DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Security Code
Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
No
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Yes
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

52 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
17 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Mono-Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Yes
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
4 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
EQ7: 7-band parametric equalizer with 8 tone curves (7 presets and 1 custom)
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

TFT-LCD Monitor
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
White
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
120 dB
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Yes

This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Rear
Number of Front USB Inputs
Number of Rear USB Inputs
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

2 Sets of Rear RCA A/V Inputs

Monitor Screen Features

Touchscreen
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
Yes
Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.
Monitor Angle Adjustment

Backward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt backwards so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, this type of pivot means that the bottom of the screen stays stationary while the top of the screen retracts. On Double DIN units this means that the bottom of the screen slides forward while the top of the screen moves down, resulting in a backwards angle tilt.

Forward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt forward so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, a forward pivot keeps the bottom of the screen stationary while the top of the screen moves forward. On select Double DIN units, a forward tilt is sometimes referred to as a reverse tilt. The bottom of the screen remains in the same position while the top of the screen moves forward.

Left/Right Angle (Horizontal):
Some monitors allow the display to be rotated to the left or right in order to have the best viewing angle possible.

Slide In/Out:
A feature mainly found in select Kenwood units. It allows the entire screen to slide in and out. This is different from a forward/backward tilt in that the entire screen moves forward or backwards as opposed to just the top or bottom.

None
MirrorLink Compatible
MirrorLink allows connectivity between a smartphone and the aftermarket car receiver. The consumer gets into the car, connects the phone with a cable, and gains access to phone applications through the car stereos controls such as navigation and steering wheel buttons. MirrorLink allows consumers to use their smartphones safely and simply, keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Head Unit does what it says. Cable to the TomTom unit is about 6 feet long. USB cable is about 6 feet long. There is a very cool swipe feature for moving to the next track on the touch screen. I haven't figured out how to turn off the intro screens- there must be a way as the current practice of running the intro loop ad nauseum is an annoyance. Sonic was great when the price moved around.I am very pleased with their responsiveness. They were also willing to work through some complications with my credit card since I live in Canada and Mastercard was being difficult.

Sony XNV-660BT

June 13, 2011

I ordered this unit for my wife's 2004 Pathfinder. She LOVES the Bluetooth integration with her phone. I also added a XM tuner and a steering wheel kit. The steering control adapter seems to "blip" once every time I turn the car off - typically this means that it will change the station that you are listening to down one - so every time you start the car you have to reset the station - need to trouble shoot this issue further but it's pretty clear that the problem is with the steering wheel controls adapter.

Navigation by Garmin - great when it works... for some reason it has started to take FOREVER (like 30 min+) to find a satellite on a clear day near a major city. This means that the unit hangs on "finding satalite" and renders the GPS useless. I am hoping that a software update of the GPS unit clears this up.

GUI - honestly its kind of pedestrian. For all the real estate that the large screen provides none of the "skins" are very attractive. My personal annoyance is that when I am in XM mode I can only see 1 line of text surrounded by 80% empty screen - I have no idea why it doesn't display stantion # & name on 1 line then artist / song title on one or 2 more lines. It's really pretty annoying, my years old 4 line Alpine in another car gives me at least 3 lines of information on 1 screen with out having to toggle the "display" button.

I would love to have Sony release a GUI update - the hardware itself is nice but the visuals are pretty lacking.

It Looks Good and it sounds GREAT!!!!!!

June 30, 2011

I put this unit in my 02 Mercedes C320 and it surprised me, The screen is bright and very easy to read even in direct sunlight. Pairing with the phone and use of the IPod was easy and is easily controlled through the unit. I was really happy with the TomTom GPS. I had a Garmin and this TomTom beats all of its functionalities hands down. I especially like the TomTom Photo Enforcement Alert for camera controlled intersections. It Looks Good and it also sounds GREAT !!!!!! You cant beat Sonix's price!!!!

Do not use while driving

November 29, 2011

The warning that reminds me not to use it while driving needs to be cleared by pressing the slow to respond "ok", I offer the following review.

To sum it up, the warning says it all about the functions of this deck. The pathways for the functions used by a person that takes audio seriously are a terrible design that are crippled by a very slow "computer".

The GPS, I will take my Garmin stuck to my window any day. Yes, it's still stuck to my window. Bummer. Don't buy it, you probably will not like it.

Great Value, Some Annoying Features

August 21, 2011

Better features and quality than anything else i looked at in the price range. I was looking at a kenwood, but realized i would have to spend another $400 to get one with a2dp. I do not regret my purchase and would recommend it, especially as the price continues to drop. However, having said that, here are my gripes:
Bluetooth led on the front is so bright that i painted over it.
Eq is hard to get to and hard to adjust while driving. (but works well.)
With the dual screen on (nav & audio), to use nav you have to press the screen once to get the audio screen to disappear and second time to use the map functions. At first, i complained about the touch screen being no where near as sensitive as my phone, but it actually makes it easier to use if you are trying to hold your hand steady while driving by lightly touching the screen.
Tomtom seems comparable to garmin, and both seem much better than companies that make their own nav, but it doesn't seem like they make use of the full resolution of the screen and street names rarely show up on north/south streets. Google maps on my phone are much better, but if you lose 3g, you lose the map and it's too hard to read while driving - each has it's place. The zoom function in drive view is +/- buttons across the top. In map view it is a slider on the right side. The slider lags and it is very hard to zoom in on a map and keep it centered where you want it. They should borrow an idea from phones and zoom in at the point where you double tab.
My biggest gripe, that isn't mentioned in any review i've seen, is the usb flash drive is limited to 2000 songs. My 32g flash drive hit the sony limit at about 10g. The unit says it will play mp4 videos, but i think they have to be on disk, not usb.

Not for me. It just doesn't produce a good sound.

June 10, 2012

A GREAT unit if you do not require good audio. I am not an audiophile by any stretch, but having paired my current amp with this unit as well as two others, I just cannot get a good clear sound out of the Sony, even after hours of adjustment, at all different setting (both amp and head unit). The NAV is great, the Bluetooth is very adequate. I just feel that they had to sacrifice audio at the expense of other bells and whistles, i.e., only one sub out connection. I replaced this unit with a Pioneer without NAV. It was then that I realized how the Sony touchscreen was also sub par.

Sony GPS

November 6, 2011

I'm very happy with the Sony features. The sound is great! The included Tom-Tom GPS is fine but I still wish Microsoft Street & Trips would team up with a GPS unit like this Sony so trip planning and routing could all be done on my PC. There is a small removable Tom-Tom device that can be updated and multiple maps installed but without the ability to work like Streets & Trips.

This is the second Sony XNV-66oBT I've bought. It's a nice unit and using the same make and model unit in both my car and my wife's car makes life a little easier.

Sony XNV 660BT

I bought this last October and my son installed it without any difficulty, I have waited to review to make sure everything is A OK and it is. The Radio works great, the ipod connection is great as well and the sync to iPhone through Bluetooth is great. Now this being said the quality of voice through cell phone is not good I have been told but the quality in car is really good. This unit was and is the best value for the price.

Great Sound but with some challenges

February 6, 2012

I have the Satellite radio controller option which works great since it allows you to use a portable satellite radio tuner (in my glove box). Sound quality is fantastic and I was amazed how much better my stock speakers sounded (2003 VW Jetta). The Satellite radio interface on this Sony is terrible though. It displays only one song item at a time (channel, song, artist etc.) despite the large screen. The control interface is very primitive really (black and white only), and seems like an afterthought. Dimming the screen is impossible (either too dark or too light). So if Sony could update the control interface, this radio would be brilliant.

Installed easily in a Ford Explorer with Backup Camera

February 7, 2012

The unit looks great and functions nicely. The problem with this unit is the "screen saver" or what I call the "passive screen". When listening to the CD or Radio, there are no options for a real impacting screen to play. Then there is the clock, that is so SMALL in the bottom corner of the screen that you can't find it to tell the time. I think at the price, SONY would have updateable firmware that would allow you to customize the display and what is shown. I think I would look for a different unit after owning this one. The price was normal for SONY, higher than the competition. The installation instructions are very hard to understand and are NOT for the DIY installer. I had experience, and it was not clear for me. I installed the HD unit as well as a backup camera. It does have a GREAT display for DVD movies and photos, if you can get them converted to the right format. Think hard. I also installed the steering wheel control by PAC.

Navigation through the Sirius Radio leaves a little bit to desire. TomTom has to be reset every couple of weeks.
