Sony’s new car audio products at CES included an XAN-V400 navigation module that can work with all of its AV receivers including the new XAV-AX100 CarPlay/Android Auto receiver and new upcoming XAV-631BT and XAV-651BT receivers.
The XAN-V400 lets users add navigation to basic level head units to keep a low price overall. It also lets dealers stock navigation inventory at a lower cost than stocking multiple in-dash navigation devices.

The XAV-W651BT DVD/receiver and XAV-V631BT CDless AV center will be available in February for $279 and $249, respectively.

They are rear view camera ready with customizable parking guidelines.
