“Supports Sony radio” no it doesn’t. It doesn’t give any Bluetooth connection to anything except “maps”
No good 1/5
By Diamond Jim one
Don’t waste your time on this app !
I recently purchased a Sony Radio for my vehicle. I purchased it due to the price and all of the different things it did for the price. Upon installing it I really liked it and still do. I just do not like the fact that it says it’s compatible with an iPhone app but the app is terrible. All I have on mine is the “maps” tab that opens the Apple Maps application. It never connects to my radio with Bluetooth nor USB iPhone charger. Radio is great don’t get me wrong, really works well with the Alpine and Kicker speakers I have, but the app needs to get fixed or they shouldn’t be advertising it as app compatible.
Pls make it compatible with Spotify 3/5

Pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls
Wasted opportunity 2/5
The first impression I get is that this app is simple to use, but in reality it’s cumbersome and somewhat confusing to use. I agree with most reviewers; it urgently needs an update. But I’m not holding my breath.
Sony abandoned this app years ago. It's an embarrassment that it is still available. The last update killed it dead. Roll back to a version that worked, fix it, or delete this mess from the app store.
Please fix and update the app 1/5

Just recently bought a new Sony double din head unit and wanted to try this app on my IPhone 7 Plus to control everything from the app. The only thing shows on the app is the maps. Tried everything to make it work, no success. Please fix.
Pandora horrible 1/5
By Mik D Rock
It will play from pandora but it locks it out where you can’t change pandora stations. It’s very frustrating to say the least. Please fix this.
Update is even worse! 1/5
Pandora is no longer supported.
Doesn’t work 1/5
App works great for android devices I loved this app on my old galaxy
But now is useless
Can’t get app to download 1/5
I just can’t get the app to download completely
Two thumbs down Sony! 1/5
Pretty sad when you buy a Sony radio and a factor is that it has app control only to find out they don’t update the app and that it does not work with IOS11! Sony you don’t even deserve one star for this!
Garbage !! 1/5
By 1973 JJ
Complete garbage if you have iPhone don’t batter save you money don’t by xav 602 bt radio don’t work with iPhone with this app or without .after waiting 3 years for upgrade still don’t work will never buy SONY again !!!!!
Well-designed, clean & effective 5/5
I really like this application. Personally I would never have bought a SONY head unit; the previous owner of my truck installed it. I exclusively purchase ALPINE mobile media hardware. I found out about this application by accident and I enjoy its functionality. It is worth noting that I use iOS 9.3 because I can't stand iOS 10 or 11. Whether it is because of this or something else that I haven't had the issues other people speak of, I do not know, but if you use older iOS like I do you should have no problems.
Not compatible with current iOS 2/5
Please UPDATE, the stereo doesn’t work with the app!
Sony update iOS 11 4/5
Don’t update to iOS 11 if you rely on this app for your car radios. It will not work. This is a good app, if only Sony would spend the time to update it. People use this with their phones and iPads. Even their newer radios use this app. Come on Sony update this app ASAP.
Updated to work with iOS 11
It works, could use some updates to fix some things. But works with iOS 11, you can finally update your iPhone or iPad.
So, it works now… But still recommend you do not buy Sony products. 1/5
By MeanIous Dude
— December 2017 update: Wow. Sony actually released a version of the software that is compatible with newer iOS. I have actually purchased another stereo for my car, but haven’t slapped it in yet. Will this release change my mind? Will I give Sony a few more stars? Probably not. It really is lame that a company would take as long as they have just to allow me to properly utilize what is supposedly a high-end product. This is an app based product. Companies that build app based products really need to keep up with the current operating systems and the changing landscape. This obviously isn’t a core competency for Sony Corporation.
Apple App Store: again, is there anyway I can give us less than one star? Seriously.
— Update: am done with Sony forever! The head unit was expensive in comparison to others and the support received from the vendor is less than worthless. This app is no longer supported in iOS 11. Talked to Sony “support” and got nowhere. Vendor obviously does not care. Can I give it less than one star??
The quality of the radio that goes with this is actually great. The application as always left something to be desired. It's almost as if the application was an afterthought by somebody is Sony. Controls are woefully lacking, and functionality follows suit.
Now, with iOS 10, I noted unexpected behaviors. The first occurs when I plug my iPhone in, and open the application (as directed for use of the head unit with the iPhone) the application moves my control from USB position to Pandora position on the head unit. I seen a few other annoyances like that and I'm really wondering if Sony will do anything?
I would really like to can this application, but unfortunately I can't. The head unit will continue display open application until I satisfy the request.
12/20/17 update 1/5
I was excited to see the update today as it has not been functional for nearly a year, and somewhat functional before that. However, the app now only shows the “maps” icon and nothing else, I just tried it with my stereo and nothing is there so I can’t control anything. Nice try Sony, but your still behind the ball on this. Such a large company with top products in other markets, but you can’t give your pricey mobile audio any proper attention. If your reading this before you purchase the Sony stereo, don’t depend on the app to work or Sony to support it, I have been emailing them constantly with no luck. Might look at the competition.

No iOS 11 support? 1/5
By Mikey Novato
Cmon Sony! You’re a multi billion entertainment company selling millions of auto radios! What’s the point of the supposed great app if you can’t even keep up with the most popular device operating systems??
Unnecessary App 1/5
Always had issues with this app. For three years.
Need an update for iOS
Update the app 1/5
Sony, please get on the ball and update this app. You continue to sell hardware which relies upon the use of this app, yet the app is incompatible with iOS 11. Not very fair to your customers to make us sacrifice security to use your products. No wonder you got pwned by DPRK!
Is not 64 bit compatible so it won’t work on newer IOS 1/5
Sony hasn’t updated this to work on 64 bits rendering all radios that used the app unable to talk with the app. They haven’t posted an update in many years. I won’t buy a Sony radio again. Maybe a class action suit will make them do something.
Terrible app needs to be updated 1/5
This is an awful app that is required to operate your stereo head unit. Now that I’ve updated my iOS the app won’t even open because it’s not compatible. Get your act together Sony, you’re embarrassing yourselves
UPDATE NEED !!!!!!!! 1/5
By Du Tony
I NEED UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Only reason I went with a Sony stereo was the integration of the app for my custom iPad install. However it’s very outdated with very minimal functionality and control. Very disappointed in Sony.
Are they gonna update this app so it works with iOS 11

This app really needs an update
Update app 1/5

Sony? App Remote 1/5
You would think a corporation as big a Sony would support their products better than this. No updates for this app in over 3 years and now it is incompatible with iOS 11... Disappointing!!!
Please FIX this app 2/5
Now that we’ve updated to iOS 11 APP doesn’t work. I use this on my boat all summer long. Please fix...

By Geo Garden
Doesn’t work with iOS 11!!!! No way to get in touch with developers!! Fix This Sony!!
Update please!!!! 5/5
This needs an update asap. Such a good idea but it needs an update. Thank you!!!
iOS 11 1/5
Please recompile app so it works on iOS 11
I've struggled with the stereo and the app 1/5
I love the idea and functionality this app provides, when it works. Ever since upgrading from my iPhone 5 my Sony stereo periodically says my 6, and 6s are incompatible. This app did wonderful things, setting the time on my stereo, allowing easy setting changes for bass, treble etc. As of iOS 11 it will be completely disabled because it has never been updated from 32 to 64 bit. Please Sony, take a few moments to make this app work again.
