It has a resistive WVGA screen which is much better in touch, feel and resolution than the Sony HU. It has automatic 1.5A charging while connected to Android Auto.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Did you also consider Pioneer AVH 5290? Your views on comparison between Sony XAV 5000, JVC 740 BT and Pioneer 5290?

Yes, I considered the Pioneer also. It is a fantastic HU in it's own right with equivalent sound dac but it missed out on the 2nd usb port which was crucial for me because I needed to connect Android Auto for navigation as well as listen to my vast music collection on my USB drive, simultaneously. It was just for that that it dropped out of contention for me.

How is the performance of Android auto on this system? Does it work satisfactorily?

Quite good if not better than the Sony. You need a high quality USB cable for a trouble free experience.

I am facing an irritating issue with the ICE of my Civic.

I have Rainbow Soundline Components in the front and Dreamlines at the rear, all being powered by an Audison LRX 4.1 Amp. The front left speaker sometimes switches off when going over undulations and then comes back after sometime. Also if I tap the amp it comes back on.
The technicians at the store where I get the work done, says I need to get the amp serviced. That is a big challenge because getting these high end amps serviced. I though think it is an issue with the connection but not sure. Any place I can the amp serviced in Delhi NCR ?

Also I have changed the OEM speakers in my Duster to Focal Integration components in the front and coaxials in the rear. I am planning to add an amp and an underseat woofer. For the amp I don't want to pay much because the idea is to shift the Audison here later when I sell the Civic. What would be a good 4 channel amp which is not expensive. Amazon has some good offers for JBL but they are more SPL biased than SQ which is something I don't want.

I believe "Driven" was the dealer for Audison in the NCR region.

Both Kenwood and Pioneer make decent 4 channel amplifiers for entry-level systems.
