Sony DSX-A50BT Bluetooth Car Radio - £69.99 @ Halfords

yargmanyargman

Looks like a brilliant price for a car radio with Bluetooth built-in! Can't find any reviews, or even that many specs about it online, but as far as I know Sony is still a big name in in-car entertainment with a remote included.

No CD player here, just radio, aux in, Bluetooth and USB.

I'd be on this deal if I hadn't spent all my money on a car!

    This aint got a cd tray, not putting it down you just need to change the title.

    Didn't even notice that! Guess it shows how unimportant a CD player is for me these days. Even so hopefully it'll help some people =)

    Here it is on amazon CLICK, £100 seems to be the going rate so yeah this is a gd deal. I wanted a pioneer with a nice screen but this would be so much easier as my current cd player is a sony so the stalk adapter and everything will work with this.

    Really? With this particular model? Bit worrying as I'm planning to use it with my S3...

    i had the S2 and a sony BT stereo, also other people with the note had the reboot issue, we all traded in for the alpine bt 133 model and have not had the problem since.

    search samsung bluetooth reboot issues on google and you wont buy it :) the s3 also has it

    Hmmmm that doesn't look too great, can't see any mention of the S3 having the same issues though. Might give it a go when I've got some spare cash and take it back if it doesn't work properly. Never had any issues with a stock Peugeot Bluetooth system, so might be an issue at Sony's end.

    i recently bought the autosound 51486 from aldi for £39.99 reduced from £49.99

    as seen here

    user manual here

    flyer picture link here

    TOP 2 LINKS NOT WORKING SO JUST GOOGLE AUTOSOUND 51486 (as the name of website keeps appearing as stars for some reason and not displaying the name)

    and all i can say is wow,
    it plays mp3 files via usb, sd card, cd and aux (3.5mm mp3 player input)
    and ipod touch, iphone etc.. via bluetooth as well as hands free calling via bluetooth
    as well as coming with 3 year warranty, and has awesome sound
    there may be some still about or worth keep checking their weekly specials thurdays and sundays

    it is just sony head units, my alpines fine, some ford cars seem to have sony units as part of the built in system.

    so long as your happy taking it back go buy it and dont use the mounting plate, set it up and start a playlist, if it makes it to the 1 hour mark your safe as eveyone with the issue rebooted after 30-40 mins.

    trouble is the S3 is quite new so it takes time to find out the issue!

    halfords were more than happy to upgrade me to the alpine.

    The reason 4 the problem with the sony and parrot kits with samsung is they use the same software and samsung new software which is on s2 s3 isnt on the sony or parrot yet might be in a couple of months i work in halfords thats how i know :) Hope it helps

    i never mentioned parrot kits ;)

    the alpine has parrot and works fine though.

    You'll almost certainly need a fascia adapter if it's the original you're replacing, it depends if you currently have a single DIN or double DIN stereo installed, and which year it was made.
    This website shows you the different ones available (even if if's crazy expensive) Clickety click

    How odd, AFAIK there isn't a way to update the actual head unit, so does that mean older Sony Bluetooth units will never work with new Samsung phones, instead only Sony stereos released in the future will include the software needed?

    they can update the phone, the 3rd party roms work fine. alpine units can be updated unlike sony.
