Summary: Has everything I needed in a car stereo plus a few extras I'm enjoying. Really like the bluetooth functions, and the fact that I can play a homemade mp3 or cd makes it even better. Still getting used to the controls, but seems like it's going to work out great.
Summary: Easy to use audio features, easy to sync. bluetooth device. Powerful enough to run aftermarket speakers. Love the sub out feaure. You better have a quiet vehicle, the speaker for the bluetooth is behind the faceplate. Mine is in my wife's Volvo so it works well. I'll look for something with a remote mic. for my F250. Overall I am very happy.
Summary: The Sony MEX BT-2500 is a good option for those looking to spend no more than $200 on a Bluetooth-enabled in-car stereo. Its straightforward design and intuitive controls make it easy to use, but its limited calling capabilities and poor outgoing sound quality let it down.
Pros: Really good music quality with bluetooth streaming from my phone as well as incoming/outgoing calls. I've had no probs with this deck and would recommend this model to anyone.
Cons: No probs with this deck. I've had it for 7 mths now and it still works fine. My doberman even chewed on it and it still works the same as when I had just bought it(got some scratches & dents though!)
Pros: As a whole the Sony Mex-BT2500 is a spectacular device. I primarily use the bluetooth to stream music. The sound quality is superb. I have the w580i and I can use the systems remote to change songs.
Cons: The car microphone is poor. People on the other end of the line have trouble hearing you.
