Big screen with updated flexibility

The XAV-AX8500 digital multimedia receiver features a 25.7 cm (10.1 inch) capacitive HD touchscreen with an updated display joint featuring a new tilt and swivel mechanism. Together with both wireless and wired connectivity to your smartphone and various devices, and sound customisation, it offers a safe and enjoyable driving experience.

Oversized high-definition display

An optically gapless 25.7 cm (10.1 inch) high-definition LCD panel offers enhanced picture quality, and its clean interface enables safer and easier operation than ever.

Easily adjustable tilt and swivel

The newly designed tilt and swivel mechanism lets you manually adjust the oversized high-definition display’s viewing angles. The display joint’s screw-less structure gives you a range of ±15 degrees, both horizontally and vertically, with no tools required – even after installation.

Fully wireless smartphone connectivity

Thanks to a Wi-Fi® connection to your smartphone, together with the supplied GPS antenna, you can use voice control to navigate, communicate and play music on the road even with your device in your pocket.

Sound customization

The built-in DSP offers sound processing and time alignment—down to a remarkable 1 cm for each of the five addressable channels (four speakers and subwoofer via pre-out). A 14-band EQ lets you adjust the overall sound to your music or taste, and with the three-zone crossover, you can arrange the perfect match of front, rear and subwoofers.

HDMI Input

HDMI connectivity allows you to hook up an external audio and visual source device or a compatible smartphone, so you can view your favorite content when your car is parked.

High-definition capacitive touchscreen

A large floating 25.7 cm (10.1 inch) capacitive touchscreen with 1280 x 720-pixel high resolution offers crisp detail, higher brightness and contrast for superior in-car experience.

Gapless Anti-glare Display

Unlike a conventional display, the LCD is bonded directly to the protective glass touch layer with a transparent adhesive. The result is an extremely precise touch experience along with enhanced contrast and visual performance. The internal anti-glare filter hugely improves touchscreen visibility by reducing sunlight reflections, ensuring easier and safer driving.

Connected to your car

iDatalink® Maestro® compatibility connects the XAV-AX8500 to your vehicle’s onboard computer, turning it into a customized display for factory-equipped functions and features. With an iDatalink® Maestro® RR by Automotive Data Solutions you can interface with vehicle infotainment and information—for performance, safety and comfort—directly on the 10.1 inch touchscreen.

Customizable viewing angle for every journey

The display joint allows you to manually tilt and swivel the display – both at ±15 degrees – to suit your personal preference. This range of movement allows you to not only alter the angle according to your preferred seating position, but also to avoid things like reflection of the direct sunlight, or to share the navigation screen with your passengers.

How it works

The screw-less tilt and swivel mechanism is designed to be easily adjusted without tools yet remain static and stable even under harsh vehicle vibration.


The sturdy display joint offers four-way installation adjustment, including sub-tilt for horizontal swivelling, making it easier to position the oversized display perfectly.

Enhanced wireless audio streaming with LDAC

Enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth® wireless audio and exceptional sound quality thanks to LDAC. Connect compatible devices to stream audio at 96 kHz / 24-bit with bitrates up to 3x higher (990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth®.

3-camera trigger inputs

You can see the images of up to three connected cameras when you shift the vehicle’s transmission lever to the reverse position or tap the dedicated icons on the home screen. By utilising the supplied trigger wires, each camera image can be switched on and off, or from one to another automatically by detecting the vehicle’s turn signals or sensing compatible signals such as that for a connected front camera. An adjustable parking guide is also available for reverse gear.

SiriusXM® Radio Ready

Connect your SiriusXM® Radio satellite tuner (not supplied) to enjoy commercial-free music, sports, news and entertainment.

HD Graphical User Interface

The 1280 x 720 HD touchscreen offers an enhanced user interface for safety and ease of use. It features a clean design with customisable icon positioning and wallpaper to suit your vehicle and style.

Ready to go

With the Quick Wake-up feature, you’re ready to go right after turning on the ignition.

Safer, easier operation

The button design features large keys to seamlessly fit with the sleek display. Access volume, source, sound settings and voice control, for safe and easy operation on the road.

Single-DIN chassis for your flexible installation

Despite its huge screen, the main unit is packed in a single-DIN chassis for flexible installation in both single and double-DIN dashboards, while still leaving plenty of room for cables and harnesses when installed in double-DIN vehicles.

Environment in mind

Our products are not only designed to be stylish but also with the environment in mind. For the individual packaging of the XAV-AX8500, 90% of the cushions are made of paper materials, and compared to the prior model, printed information has been carefully considered for simplicity and length to reduce printer ink usage by approximately 80%, reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing environmental impact.
