Crutchfield cannot guarantee figment and Googling hasn't been productive either. Does our phone fit this receiver?

The dock will work with all Android phones

Speaking of phones, the dock is configurable to fit phones of different sizes. The double-DIN standard prescribes dimensions of 180×100 mm, so presumably even the Xperia Z Ultra phablet will fit (it measures 179.4 x 92.2 mm).

The head unit will be compatible with most Android phones via the app (which will be on the Play Store), though if your device is substantially larger than the Xperia Z1 it may not physically fit in the clamp mechanism, so Note 3 and Z Ultra owners probably shouldn't be preordering just yet.

Ast this product has not launched yet there is limited information available but from what I can find via the below link only the Xperia Z and Xperia z1 are compatible with the Magnetic Connecter.

And there is even a thread here on XDA

Thanks very much for your post. It's very helpful for those of us considering a purchase of this XSP-N1BT head unit. I have an Xperia Z Ultra with dimensions of 179.4 x 92.2 mm so it seems that based on the posted max supported phone size for this head unit in the manual of 150.7 x 77mm my phone would NOT sit/fit in the dock properly, but I'm wondering if there's anything you can tell from having your hands actually on it that might seem like it could accommodate it anyway. Doesn't it seem idiotic for Sony's own engineers to not make sure this stereo works well with their current largest available smartphone? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. I'd bet there are loads of Z Ultra users like me trying to find this info, so they'd be extremely happy if you could post a picture of a Z Ultra in your unit if indeed it could fit, but any kind of answer from an actual owner would be awesome before I make a purchase I might have to return.

The Z ultra will 100% not fit in this deck, the largest device that did fit in there is the Samsung note 2, with a width of 80mm. Fitting the note 2 also required a significant amount of force to squeeze it in.
Sony's engineers/designers definitely had a brain fart while working on this unit, either that or the one i purchased is defective because the locking latch does not actually push down far enough to actually lock the z1 in place. This problem is hard to describe in words, but what happens in the real world is when ever i hit a bump, slight pot hole or accelerate/decelerate too fast, my z1 falls right out of the deck and sometimes hit me right in the balls . Although this would only be a problem if your car has stiff suspensions like mine.

And at last I found some official information

Compatible with restrictions

Pairing/Connect via NFC
Handsfree talking: Dialed/Received calls
Phonebook browsing
Voice control - Activation from Accessory
Audio remote control
Audio Streaming
Audio - Display information
Application link - connection & control

But still no details of its being able to mount or if its too big
The best idea I can come up with is to either try it. Order one sample to your home or visit a local shop that can unpack one unit and you can take out your Z ultra and try to dock it in there.

...or just wait until someone else does it and confirms if it fits or not
