Sony XAV AX1000
 
This is the newly released successor to the popular AX100 unit. Very similar units, but the new one is only Apple CarPlay compatible (No Android Auto), has a slightly smaller display (6.2" vs 6.4"), and has the USB and AUX input on the front to eliminate the worry of routing a cable into the center console. Also, this unit is $100 cheaper than the AX100. I've ordered this unit along with:

-Metra 40-NI12 Antenna adapter
-Metra 70-7553 wiring harness
-Axxess ASWC-1
-Scosche dash kit

If anyone has this stereo, or the AX100, let me know if there were any install complications, and if I need anything else to install this on my 2019 Z with BOSE (no navi). Also drop your feedback on the stereo itself! I should be installing this over the weekend so I will definitely update this thread with my thoughts.

Installed the AX1000 yesterday. So far I love it and I have no complaints. Apple CarPlay is amazing, and the highs sound loud and crisp. Got the steering wheel adapter to auto-program and the unit fit perfectly on the OEM Nissan mounting brackets. I DID NOT like the cheap Scosche dash kit and just ended up using the stock piece even though there is a tiny gap around the stereo.

I would certainly recommend this stereo to anyone. For less than $300 you can't really go wrong. Plus, it blends in really well with the interior of the Z... very nice finish and classy look :)

Is that face plate green APPLE CAR PLAY COMPATIBLE a sticker or screened onto the face? Because that crap has got to go.
Similar to when you buy a home receiver and there ten stickers on the face of it.

LOL. It's a sticker that I've removed after I took those pictures.

Can you load your own background picture on the main screen"?

Were you able to retain steering controls?

Yup

I just picked up the AX5000 today and ordered all the parts.

Any gotcha moments or challenges you had I should be aware of?

Was this the same harness you used?

I saw an older thread where someone was complaining that the pins didnt match from the Metra and their stock wiring.

I just ordered an android deck and the Metra harness. If I hate it I'll probably go with the Sony deck too. Noticed you have a 2019 Z as well. Did you Metra harness plug into the stock wiring no problem? Thanks!

I'm thinking long and hard on getting one of these for my miata

You'll likely need to run a wire back to the factory bluetooth unit if you want the steering wheel voice buttons to activate google assistant (or whatever). They'll both do the same thing though, but better than nothing.
