San Diego, CA - Aug 15, 2012 - Sony introduced new in-dash receiversfeaturing Sony-exclusive App Remote technology, combining consumers' car audio music assets and smartphone apps into a single source list that can be controlled from the car audio system or smartphone. With App Remote, it is no longer necessary to go back-and-forth between the car audio system and smartphone to access a favorite tune. Music information such as album artwork is displayed on the smartphone screen, while incoming text messages can be read aloud through the car's speakers.

The new CDX-GS500R CD receiver features Sony's new App Remote technology for iPhone, while the new CDX-GT710HD model includes HD Radio and a dynamic color illuminator for different light effects. Both systems are SiriusXM Ready and work with Pandora on the iPhone. The new models include USB connectivity (with dual ports on the CDX-GS500R model) for Walkman, iPod, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and other compatible USB devices.

Bluetooth is built-in to the new MEX-GS600BT, MEX-BT4100P and MEX-BT3100P receivers, and each model features Sony's App Remote technology. Bluetooth head units from Sony support wireless playback, track control, and display of song information from Bluetooth enabled MP3 players or smartphones. The receivers also offer USB connectivity for Walkman, iPod, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and other compatible USB devices, with dual ports available on the MEX-GS600BT model.
