Sony XSP-N1BT Smartphone Cradle Bluetooth Car Stereo

The Sony XSP-N1BT is no ordinary in-dash Bluetooth receiver. This double DIN stereo comes with a built-in smartphone cradle which allows you to use your smartphone as the display in your car. Not satisfied with your stereo's GPS? With this stereo design, you can use your favorite GPS navigation app, be it Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze or any others, right on the faceplate of your car stereo! You will also have access to your favorite apps like Pandora Internet radio, iHeart Radio, Netflix and YouTube. All you need to do to get started is to download Sony's free, exclusive App Remote app to use your phone as your display. The App Remote app also enables voice control and notification readouts with Android devices. Emails, text messages or notifications from Twitter, Facebook or your calendar are automatically read aloud when received.

The XSP-N1BT accommodates nearly any smartphone including most iOS and Android devices, as well as the Sony Xperia of course! The built-in USB input allows you to keep any Apple or Android devices charged. Docking your device is simple, no matter if you are using an iPhone or Android smartphone. To dock your iPhone simply connect via USB, to dock your Android you may do so via USB or Bluetooth connection.

You can also use the XSP-N1BT as a standard CD car stereo without a smartphone. It also include built-in AM/FM radio, front and rear USB ports, and an input for a SiriusXM tuner.

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
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.

55 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 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.
5 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.
10-Band
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.

Smartphone
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Red/Blue
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

Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
Yes
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
18
AM Presets
The number of AM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
12
Radio Data System (RDS)
Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
Yes
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
Yes
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.

No

Audio / Video Inputs

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB.

n/a

Expandability Features

Navigation
Built-in navigation is a convenient feature that allows the driver to receive driving directions and guidance.

Some in-dash head units are built-in with the navigation features, while others require an add on navigation box. Other navigation options include portable navigation units that you can take with you or attach to the dash of your vehicle.

No
Satellite Radio
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver is compatible with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio. "Optional" means while the receiver is capable of SIRIUS/XM playback and connectivity, you will still need to purchase an additional satellite tuner, adapter, and/or antenna.
Optional - SiriusXM (Accessory required and sold separately)
HD Radio
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver is capable of receiving high-definition digital HD Radio broadcasts by either a built-in HD Radio tuner, or more commonly with the purchase of an optional HD Radio tuner box. Receivers which are HD Radio Ready generally require an additional purchase of a separate tuner.
No
Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature refers to whether or not the head unit is able to connect to a hands-free Bluetooth device. Head units that are Bluetooth ready typically require the purchase of an optional adapter or accessory that connects to the rear of the head unit. This optional accessory allows you to accept phone calls through your head unit and speakers. Some head units have built-in Bluetooth hands free capabilities with an included remote-mount microphone or built-in microphone.
Yes (Built-in/Included [Bluetooth Controls, Adapter and/or Microphone Included])
A2DP Music Streaming
The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile will wirelessly stream music and other audio from an A2DP compatible device.
Yes
Steering Wheel Control Compatible
In order to retain a vehicle's factory steering wheel remote controls, a wired-remote input is needed on the aftermarket stereo.

If "Yes", then the aftermarket stereo is compatible with steering wheel remote controls. If an additional accessory is required for the steering wheel controls to work properly, a compatible piece will be listed.

Universal (Accessory required and sold separately)
  • PAC ControlPro: PAC ControlPRO Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface
  • Axxess ASWC-1: Axxess ASWC-1 Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface

Loving this unit after shopping around for a year. I own the Xperia Z, which is fully compatible minus the ability to charge on the docking station, so I got the Z3 and it charges on the dock and everything else it's supposedto do. BT phone mic clarity is top notch and the audio features turned my stock speakers into something amazing. No need to buy new spkrs just yet!

Perfect For WRX!

September 6, 2015

Functions are everything you could ask for in an audio/video car stereo. No trip grounded switch to activiate video use. Just be sure to have rollover or unlimited data. Cost is on point, since everyone has a smartphone glued to his/her hand these days. Why pay for a separate display?! Love the secured dock; I own an iPhone 6 and use it in the Apple silicone case. Amazon has a few short USB to Lightning cables in black that will work well for under $10. Have to use the remote to enter settings menu. Must use supplied microphone, so be ready to navigate it through your console. Very easy install, after buying longer bolts from Lowes. Now, considering sub add on.

Just what I was looking for

November 16, 2015

I have seen some reviews where people say that it needs some work on the app side. Yes is true but what I was most interested in was the cradle and a communication (audio interface) to a cell phone. I have a note 4 and have to say it barely fits, this is absolutely the biggest phone width it will take (no case). The radio signal itself seems weaker than my stock JBL. And also some more buttons for radio and CD control would help on the front so it can operate better without a cell phone.

November 15, 2015

If you are like me and have all of your music contained within your smartphone (so that it is always with you) then why buy yet another device for playing it when all you need to do is simply connect to this stereo and let them become one! Mwahaha!

Best Gadget for your car

November 27, 2015

I spend a lot of time in a car and this Sony deck serves me well. Easy to use and blue-tooth feature works flawlessly. I love the fact that you can use smartphone apps, especially the Map, Nav app and much more from your phone. By far, this is the best hand-free product I have ever used.
At the same time you can watch movies, listen to music streaming from the web (do not use this feature while driving).

Excellent with some issues

January 5, 2016

This is a great product. I've seen a couple problems: The bar that comes down to hold the phone in place does not hold very well, and the app could be better. Seeing as I don't really use either of these features much its really not a big deal for me but certainly would be for another. I generally stream for my Galaxy S5 with it still in my pocket. It'd be better for me if there were more controls on the front for when the phone is not there; especially, a button to answer an incoming call. If the phone is not in place you need to use the remote for this and if it has fallen on the floor board or is lost, you are SOL.

Great sound

January 2, 2016

This deck has fantastic sound out of the 5v RCA outputs. iPhone 6 plus fits with no or very thin case. I used a Dremel and cut the holder ever so slightly to keep an iPhone 6 plus with a case.. For the price, it can't be beat. Let's hope Sony updates the App, because it could be 100 times better.

The app is terrible, I want to send it back and get something else, just haven't had time yet. Delivery and service from your company was great, I like the concept behind this unit, but just doesn't live up to its description.

Best Answer: I don't have an iPhone 6, but I do use a Sony Z2 in my unit, and it has a little room to spare. Since the Z2 is larger than the iPhone 6 in every direction, the iPhone should be able to fit.

iphone 6s compatable with this unit?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2016
Best Answer: Yes, it should work fine. You use NFC and Bluetooth to wirelessly connect. And there's an app you can download called App Remote you can use to control the radio and use some of the other functions. If you want to charge it while it's mounted in the cradle, you'll have to supply your own Lightning to USB cable. It comes with a very short USB to MicroUSB cable for Android devices.

Could this stereo fit an iPad mini?
Cory E on Nov 29, 2015
Best Answer: Ugh sorry thought you meant the iPhone. No, the iPad will not fit into the built in dock. The USB only provides 1.5 amps of power so I'm not sure you could even power the Mini with the built in USB.

I have a 2006 Dodge Ram and I need to know what additional accessories are required to install this radio? IE is it a direct replacement for my current radio
Zack C on Jan 7, 2016
Best Answer: Hey Zack. This was an awesome buy for me. You're gonna love it. Practically a direct swap. To install, you may need longer bolts to secure the mounting frame to the unit before sliding it into the truck console. Easy run to Home Depot/Lowes. Grab small wire nuts or quick connections if you don't plan to solder. Sonic will include the corresponding harness for your vehicles stereo connection. There's a black finishing bezel in the Sony package in case your console opening needs the trim. Once up and running, you'll need to configure most settings with the remote (change button light color, sub level, etc). I use it with an iPhone 6, and if you plan to as well, here's the short cord I bought for resting clearance in the dock. App works fine though I usually just BT stream. Recommended this all my bros as well. Picky about electronics so I'm happy with the result. Good luck! iXCC-Element-Certified-Lightning-Charge

Will the Galaxy S6 fit without any complications?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2015
Best Answer: its designed with the Xperia range of smartphones in mind(not including the Z Ultra). The S6 might fit, but I wouldn't do that cos the lever to secure it doesn't seem that strong in the 1st place.

Has anyone been able to use the magnetic charging for non-Sony phones, such as the Galaxy S6?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2016
Best Answer: This unit doesn't have wireless charging. It has a small, proprietary contact point that was included on certain Sony phones. The Samsung phones use Qi wireless charging, which this head unit does not support.
It does however have a USB port which puts out 1.5 amps and it comes with a short USB cord to plug into the phone while it's in the mount.

what connector needed to install this radio ?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2015
Best Answer: That depends on what vehicle you have. You need to research. Metra makes a lot of the harness adapters. If just the stereo I used the metra 70-5520 with my expedition. I also was trying to hook up the swi-cp5 to my expedition however and that required cutting into the factory harness for a couple more wires that the metra harness does not have. You really need to run your vehicle through some match up engines...metra has one on their site. Scosche has one too I believe.....

Do i need to download the Sony app for this, what if i want to use apps set up on my phone already. the Sony app seems a little outdated and plain?
Michael R on Oct 5, 2015
Best Answer: Hey Mike. When using the unit thru USB (usb source), the app is useful (iPhone 6; fits in dock with Apple silicone case on). It hasn't received a recent update but works well if you wish to play music from your iTunes library. The only issue I've discovered is upon bringing up the Pandora app thru the app or source; an accessory screen pops up and doesn't allow you to change radios, forward or like songs, etc. The BT audio source is what I use most often. This will let you use your phone as usual as if it was synced to any BT speaker. You must install the microphone though and run the cable thru the dash if you desire taking calls in the vehicle (I thought I could skip it and just up my phone microphone but it didn't work). I also grabbed a short black iXCC Lightning to USB cable from Amazon. You'll have to open and use the remote to change settings (EQ, button illumination, etc). Hope this helps! For $200, it's solid for my WRX, and Sonic's never fails; best place to buy online!

What are the installations I will need to install the sony xsp-n1pt?h
MA E on Aug 23, 2014
Best Answer: Sorry I sent my car to an auto shop to install the radio in my 2009 VW Passat, so I'm not exactly sure what parts they used to fully install the radio. Here's what I know:

The antenna adapter from Sonic Electronix was used
The fitting kit was from Sonic was also used
The shop also required me to purchase 2 control computers from them in order to keep my steering wheel controls.

Everything works well, I really love this radio!

I have a '97 Lexus ES300 with the premium sound system. I figure I can't simply unplug and remove my radio and install and plug in the new Sony. So, how much cutting and rewiring am I looking at to install the Sony XSP-N1BT, including the changes that are necessary to wire the Lexus amp?
Brian H on Nov 7, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Brian,

-I figure I can't simply unplug and remove my radio and install and plug in the new Sony.

Technically speaking, correct.

-So, how much cutting and rewiring am I looking at to install the Sony XSP-N1BT, including the changes that are necessary to wire the Lexus amp?

Cutting? Generally speaking, None - if you have the proper installation accessories, of course. To that point: Simply add the headunit to your cart, enter your vehicle information when prompted, and allow the accessories to be added along with the headunit. Said accessories is what is needed to properly install the headunit.

Up to what size phone can this unit hold? Ty
A shopper on Oct 7, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

Unfortunately there isn't a standardized size for phones, so we can only offer the following as a comparison (which may be moot, considering you would need to have the phone we reference to understand the fitment.)

During our testing of the headunit, we were able to fit up to an iPhone 6+ , whose dimensions are 6.22" L x 3.06 W . The Xperia Z3 that is shown in our video, has a dimension of 5.75" L x 2.83" W . (Screensize varies far too much to bother offering that as a reference) .
