Sony's MEX BT-3100 P/U is really an awesome car stereo... It display phones battery, and also phone's signal strength, so you know if you are able to make and receive phone calls...

Also if you have a Sony Xperia with android 4.1.2 it will show ID3Tag from songs so you can easily recognize what's playing (does not work on 4.0.4).

App remote is very good... but you have to "activate" it everytime you want to use it... and your phone have to be unlocked in order to be launched by the stereo... But I find it useful when I play a CD or radio and then the phone is the one that can act as a remote with screen info and such...
