PREPARATION
Toll-Free Installation Assistance
Congratulations on your purchase of the Audiovox AVDINPC Mobile
Multimedia DVD/CD/MP3/WMA personal computer. Please read all of the
instructions before beginning the installation.
If you require assistance, contact Technical Support at 1-800-323-4815 from
8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday and from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. EST on Saturday. (U.S.A. and Canada only.)
Installation Requirements
This unit is designed for installation in vehicles with an existing radio opening.
In many cases, a special installation kit will be required to mount the computer
to the dashboard. These kits are available at electronics supply stores and car
stereo specialty shops. Always check the kit application before purchasing to
make sure the kit works with your vehicle. If you need a kit but cannot locate
one, call our customer support line at 1-800-323-4815. (U.S.A. and Canada
only.)
NOTE: If the AVDINPC is to be installed in a car equipped with an onboard drive or navigation computer, do not disconnect the battery cable.
If the cable is disconnected, the computer memory may be lost. Under
these conditions, use extra caution during installation to avoid causing
a short circuit.
Tools and Supplies
The following tools and supplies are needed to install the computer.
• Torx type, flathead and Philips screwdrivers
• Wire cutters and strippers
• Tools to remove existing radio (screwdriver, socket wrench set or other
tools)
• Electrical tape
• Crimping tool
• Volt meter/test light
• Crimp connections
• 18 gauge wire for power connections
• 16-18 gauge speaker wire
Disconnect Battery
Before you begin, disconnect the battery negative terminal (Figure 1)

AVDINPC
INSTALLATION
The unit has threaded holes in the chassis side panels which may be used
with the original factory mounting brackets of some Toyota, Nissan,
Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Hyundai and Honda vehicles to mount the computer to the
dashboard. Please consult with your local car stereo specialty shop for
assistance on this type of installation.
1. Remove the existing factory radio from the dashboard or center console
mounting. Save all hardware and brackets as they will be used to mount
the new computer.
4. Connect your monitor (purchased separately) and install any software/
drivers supplied with the monitor. Follow the instructions included with the
monitor to mount the monitor in the vehicle.
2. Remove the factory mounting brackets and hardware from the existing
radio and attach them to the new computer.
5. Mount the new computer assembly to the dashboard or center console
using the reverse procedure in step 1.
CAUTION: Do not exceed M5 X 6 MM screw size. Longer screws may
touch and damage components inside the chassis.
CAUTION: For proper operation of the DVD player, the chassis must be
mounted within 20° of horizontal. Make sure the unit is mounted within
this limitation.
NOTE: A PS/2 mouse is required for installing any drivers during initial
setup. DO NOT MOUNT the unit to the dashboard until initial setup is
complete and software is installed.
3. Place the computer in front of the dashboard opening so the wiring can be
brought through the mounting sleeve. Follow the wiring diagram carefully
and make certain all connections are secure and insulated with wire nuts
or electrical tape. After completing the wiring connections, plug the
connector into the mating socket on the rear of the chassis and turn the
unit on to confirm operation (vehicle ignition switch must be “on”). If the
unit does not operate, re-check all wiring until the problem is corrected.

ILLUMINATION WIRE (yellow)
ACC POWER WIRE (red) – Connect to a +12 volt circuit that is only live
when the ignition is on. The best connection point is at the car’s fuse
block at the “RADIO” or “ACCESSORY” identified terminals.
CONSTANT POWER WIRE (yellow) – Connect the 12V PLUS constant
power wire to a live 12 volt wire in the vehicle. Before making a
connection, check that the wire you intend to connect it to is always live,
even when the car’s ignition is turned off. If a live wire is not found, route
the wire to the car’s fuse block and connect it to a live circuit there.
GROUND WIRE (black) – Securely fasten the Ground wire to a grounded
metal part of the car’s chassis. If you cannot find an existing bolt or screw
to fasten it to, drill a hole in the metal and secure it with a screw. To
ensure a good ground, remove any paint or grease from areas where the
wire will contact the surface.
INLINE FUSE (red) – When running the red ACC Power wire directly to
the battery, the inline fuse MUST be connected between the unit and the
battery (within 18” of the battery). If the ACC Power wire is connected to
the fuse block, the inline fuse is not required.
