Sounds good but USB works only with some drives

MEX-GS820BT 04/03/2020 by JS2020 (USA)

Purchased this unit specifically for it's dual USB port capability, and being able to play from a USB flash drive containing up to 10,000 files. I have two smaller USB 3.1 drives that work fine in this Sony unit, but several larger ones that do not, though they work flawlessly in all other devices. The unit simply will not recognize the drive as being plugged in. Sony's support is of no help AT ALL, other than to say that's just the way it is.(According to the specifications in the manual, there are no restrictions on the unit accepting specific drives (i.e. USB 2.0/3.0/3.1). The only specification in the USB section says: "Interface: USB (High-speed)" and is restricted with "Maximum number of recognizable files (tracks): 10,000". Unit sounds great, is easy to learn, but the main reason I purchased it was for the availability of a large amount of music from one drive. I wish I'd selected a different brand.

Useless

MEX-GS820BT 28/09/2019  (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified

Do not buy, the unit restarts out of no were, on phone calls i can't hear them and they can't hear me, is only 1 year and a half old and now it shows ERROR OUTPUT, and only the rear speakers are working, and guess what, the warranty is only for 1 year. So now i got a non working car stereo that i paid £200 ( at that time i think it was the most expensive 1DIN stereo and being Sony i trusted them) really disappointed. Sony is not what it used to be. I have checked my speakers, all the wiring, etc. Everything is in good condition, this indicates the sony car stereo is faulty.

Great Features

MEXGS820BT 14/05/2019 by Norm56 (USA) Verified Purchaser Verified

One of the best was the hands free for my phone, it is a Jeep Wrangler, and the folks at the other end said that it sound good... It has lots of other features which is good, but my only disappointment is that although it says that it is SiriusXM ready with a connector on the back, I can't seem to be able to get the cable from either SiriusXM or Sony... So I had to use the AUX connector up front which is fine, just I cannot use the radio's feature...
