    Sony CDX-DAB500U Car Stereo

    Rated 3 out of 5 by It's all right No control remote,little complex to work whit , I was expecting more for the price 11 May 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great head unit for the price Got this at a reduced price on the website using click and collect , wanted it for the DAB capability and it is really good , had to get a connector for my dab aerial as it was different , but when all set up with my windscreen mounted dab aerial it works great can get all the stations and doesn't lose the signal like my previous unit. Good sound quality , looks good in the car and has Usb for my iPhone so it charges whilst playing songs , all in all does all that i need at a great price 04 May 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Bargain radio Easy to use, gets a great a great range of radio stations. With good sound it's great for playing music loud! 18 February 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sony CDX-DAB500U Car Stereo A Plug and play without the need for a sub woofer. CD player Radio and USB . Good value for money without breaking the bank. Also has face off option 07 January 2016
    Rated 3 out of 5 by This radio only has one downside For someone who can't wear their reading glasses when driving, the buttons are a little small. Thankfully my memory is still functioning so I've memorised the functionality buttons! 20 August 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Fab all round Great product, does exactly what I want it to do, although I am unsure what the "zapper" does. 24 July 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by No good with iPod and customer service is appalling I wanted a car stereo with DAB and which I could use with my iPod. My first disappointment came wen I realised the unit won't shuffle individual songs on the iPod. I tried a hack and renamed the songs with individual album titles but it still won't shuffle. Whe I contacted customer support, the person who emailed me back obviously had no technical knowledge whatsoever and simply directed me to a page in the manual, which was no help. I was then told I would have to a service which required me to send my unit in and would charge me if no fault was found with the radio. Utterly useless and I will be avoiding Sony products in the future. 13 July 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product. I bought this to replace my factory fitted car stereo and bring my in car entertainment into to 21st century. It is a great stereo on the whole, DAB is much clearer than analogue radio, it can use CDs and anything that has a headphone socket can be played through it. There is a USB socket, which is also a great feature, however, although it is advertised as Android compatible it will not work with my (less than 6 months old) android mobile phone. Maybe Sony phones only??? If so that should be stated. On the whole a great stereo, only dropped a star because of the android issue. 01 July 2015
