I guess one of the subtle differences I've found between the Greyhawk and Entegra Esteem is the radio. I have a sony head unit, I believe its Sony XAV-AX100 or similar model.

It has no GPS, but it does support Android Auto and Apple Carplay. I use android auto all the time and Waze and pandora going at the same time. No issues, I can see the screen OK. No issues making / receiving hands free calls.

Does the Sony work with the side and rear cameras as well and the TV inside?

The salesperson mentioned to me if I watch a DVD from the head unit the sound will play in the cab versus using the DVD player and having just TV speakers.

thank you for the recommendation to check out the sony - it looks nice in that video and we use google maps pretty exclusively on our phones so having android and apple car would be awesome.

i can't comment on the DVD sound since we haven't played one in it, but the sound from the stereo can be set to come through all the speakers in the coach, so it makes sense that would hold true with video as well, but then you won't see it on the TV screen, just the dash?

we bought that skinny little bose sound bar that costco has and hooked it to the tv above the cab and will just stream audio from our phones through that via bluetooth - already a million-fold improvement over those lovely ford factory speakers and what i presume are ~$20 speakers in the coach too

Been searching for replacement head units and found this one that looks interesting. I like the truck navigation.

Heres a link

Good choice!! I have done some research for other units and this one is a contender...

The Sony head unit doesn't have a DVD player. My coach has a physical Sony Blue-ray player attached to the TV above the cab. The sound goes through the TV, which is more then adequate so far. I haven't tried using the TV while driving, will try that on our trip in a week. Perhaps under that scenario, TV audio through the coach speakers may be useful.

Are there any firmware updates or anything like that for the Soundstream?

I have emailed support asking if there was actually. I'll let you know what they say.

I'll take it in to get it fixed but may replace with something else. I want something with a knob cause the controls are too far and too small when you want to adjust volume while driving.

Also the mic for the phone is horrible and people can't hear me.

Totally agree! The sensitivity of the GPS inputs make it essentially unusable.

I got the response back from support I guess it may be a known issue....


Hello,

I’m sorry for the situation with the navigation mode of your radio, but I don’t know of any “Firmware Flash File” reset modes for the radio.

If the reset function fails to clear the glitch with the unit, then it may need to be exchanged under warranty at the Jayco Dealership.

My Product Mgr. is also looking into this “glitch” with this model of our radios that only happens in the navigation mode.

If he comes up with a solution that can be performed in the field, I will let you know.

All the Best.

Kevin
