My head unit is Sony XAV-601BT. As long as you're not expecting to use Mirrorlink since only a few phones have that, I think it's a great unit.
It's one of very few double din with detachable face, better security for a convertible.
It's running Android (though you can't do anything else) so it shows up my Mp3 song with Unicode tags just fine (tried JVC and Pioneer, they didn't show Asian Unicode tags in some of my songs) 3D Menu is smooth, display quality is much better than another Pioneer AVH-6300BT I'm using.

I used the Axxess CHTO-013 with ASWC-1. Because the CHTO has front and back audio out, front and back fading is working fine.

The ASWC-1 steering wheel module cannot detect the VR and Phone buttons.
Want to confirm that's the way it is with people who're using PAC module? I think those buttons are hooked to the U-Connect only.

I have the Pioneer AVH-8500 BHS and it fits and works great. At first I installed all the extra cables to run video and app radio with my iPhone 5 and after a week of messing with it I took the cables out and sold them. App radio was cumbersome at best but i kept the head unit simply for the removable screen. The standard iPhone connection without video is great for me. I was able to use an adapter from amazon to connect up the factory console mounted USB and can run video off a memory stick when I want to.

Add the picture of Sony XAV-601BT I didn't post last time.
With the new software update of ASWC-1, the VR, Phone and those 6 buttons on the back of the steering wheel are all working
