The Sony XNV-770BT – Great Deals On This GPS and More-This just makes so much sense – the Sony XNV-770BT is way more than an just a GPS navigation system. It’s an entire entertainment hub for your vehicle!
Sony XNV-770BT 7-Inch WVGA In-Dash A/V Receiver with Bluetooth, USB, Satellite/HD radio ready, and Integrated Navigation from TomTom
With this unit you can integrate all elements of audio/visual through Bluetooth, USB, satellite radio, and HD radio. It comes with USB 1-wire connection and Bluetooth technology.
Let’s talk for a moment though, about its GPS which is powered by TomTom, a global leader in navigation. TomTom was founded in Amsterdam in 1991 so they know what they’re doing! And, they acquired their own mapping company in 2008 to provide the most current maps and routing data.
And this, of course helps them to provide you with the most efficient routes to wherever you’re going!
The Sony XNV-770BT GPS By TomTom
Your Sony XNV-770BT comes pre-loaded with maps of the USA and Canada and also comes with one year of updates. This is obviously important. But did you know that in really busy and growing urban areas the roads can change as much as 40% in a year. That certainly drives home the need for map updates! In addition TomTom provides you with over 1 million more miles of road in the US than others, and that’s significant!
And here’s something you’ll love… the TomTom IQ Routes Technology that takes traffic and driving data from millions of users and incorporates that information to provide you with better routing depending on the time of day and day of the week. This will save you from hours of sitting in rush hour, especially in unknown cities, as well as reduce your driving stress and frustration!
You’ll also have Advanced Lane Guidance to give you plenty of notice of upcoming turns and the ideal lane to get into so you’re not faced with making sudden and dangerous last minute lane changes. And with the spoken street names and driving directions you can keep your eyes on the road and not have to look at the screen. This also helps to keep you safe when in heavy traffic. And speaking of spoken directions, you can choose from a number of voices so you’ll have a “companion” that appeals to you.
The unit comes with 6 million points of interest so you can find the services you need quickly, making your trips much more enjoyable since you won’t be stressed trying to find a restaurant, hotel, gas station or even a hospital if you need one.
The QuickGPSfix finds the satellite quickly so you can get on your way without delay. Another way that this GPS navigation system reduces driving and trip frustrations! And you’ll have the Help Me! Emergency Resources Menu so you can find your exact location quickly in an emergency as well as immediate information on the nearest police station, hospital, tow truck or gas station.
Metra Axxess ASWC Universal Steering Wheel Control
This is a really pretty unit and the 7 inch displaygives you clear images whether it’s the GPS screen, a DVD playing or maybe a slide show of your trip photos. Regardless of what you’re viewing you’ll appreciate not only the size of the screen but the high resolution for a very crisp, clean image.
You’ll also appreciate the Bluetooth connection with your phone and the integrated hands free calling. And with the added Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface you can have all the controls right at your fingertips and not have to focus on the touch screen at all. This is a feature that’s great in urban areas or any time you’re in heavy traffic.
Superb Sound Quality
Some of the important technical details include 4 x 52 watts maximum power with 4V front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs giving you great sound quality. And if you’re anything like me, you’re passionate about your music and how it sounds! You’ll also have incredible sound for phone calls, audio books and of course your GPS navigation guide.
The inputs pretty much cover all audio formats so you can use the Sony XNV-770BT with all your devices including a thumb drive, iPhone, other smart phones, iPod, MP3 players and other similar devices.
Sony XA-R800C Rear View Camera
Here’s another feature I love: the ability to plug in the add-on Sony XA-R800C Rear View Camera. We take a risk every time we back up because no matter how much you look back there is a huge area that’s not visible. So adding in a back up camera is a major safety benefit you can get with this GPS unit.
Ever wish you had a convenient charger with you at all times. Well with this unit you do. Just plug in using the USB 1-Wire on the rear of the unit. This is especially important on long trips where you don’t have an opportunity to charge all of your devices.
When listening to music, all of your meta data is displayed giving to song titles, artists, etc. on screen, at a glance.
And speaking of sound, Sony technology is, of course, built in with Advanced Sound Engine using the EQ7 equalizer, adjustable LPF/HPF crossovers, Listener Position calibration, DM+ advanced sound restoration, Rear Bass Enhancer, and Center Stage Optimizer to create the ideal in-car sound experience.
