Customer service is useless
Lauren on 13/07/2015 1 star rating

I wanted a car stereo with DAB and which I could use with my iPod. My first disappointment came when I realised the unit won't shuffle individual songs on the iPod. I tried a hack and renamed the songs with individual album titles but it still won't shuffle. Whe I contacted customer support, the person who emailed me back obviously had no technical knowledge whatsoever and simply directed me to a page in the manual, which was no help. I was then told I would have to use a service which required me to send my unit in and would charge me if no fault was found with the radio. Utterly useless and I will be avoiding Sony products in future.

    Car: Rover 25 - <2005

    I have taken the CDXDAB500U I had fitted in my Volvo out to put in y Rover 25, I have all the fittings I need , but don't know the code for it.
    How do I find the code for the stereo


    There shouldn't be a code on the unit unless you had set one up when you first installed the unit?

    Please take the unit to one of our stores where one of the techs can have a look and advise.
