IMPORTANT NOTICES
WARNINGS
Installation of overhead products requires careful planning and
preparation. Be extremely careful when working on a vehicle with
side curtain air bags. Do not route wires near any portion of the side
curtain air bag assemblies. This includes anchor points in A, B, C or D
pillars of the vehicle. Routing wires in these areas or running wires by
the side curtain air bags can prevent the side curtain air bag from fully
deploying which can result in personal injury to vehicle occupants. If
you have any question regarding routing in a vehicle, please contact
Audiovox Technical support at 1-800-225-6074.
• Do not use any solvents or cleaning materials when cleaning the
video monitor.
• Do not use any abrasive cleaners, they may scratch the screen.
• Use only lightly dampened lint free cloth to wipe the screen if it is
dirty.
• Lock the LCD screen in fully closed position when not in use.
• Before putting on headphones, always adjust the volume setting to
OFF or lowest position.
• Remember to leave the dome light switch in the off or auto position
when the vehicle is unattended, as the dome lights, if left on, can
drain the vehicle battery.
• Do not put pressure on the screen.
• Caution children to avoid touching or scratching the screen, as it
may become dirty or damaged.
An LCD panel and/or video monitor may be installed in a motor vehicle
and visible to the driver only if the LCD panel or video monitor is used
for vehicle information, system control, rear or side observation or
navigation. If the LCD panel or video monitor is used for television
reception, video or DVD play, the LCD panel or video monitor must be
installed so that these features will only function when the vehicle is in
“park” or when the vehicle’s parking brake is applied.
Safety Precautions
When connecting power and ground in a mobile video installation,
insure that the ACC wire is fused at the point where it is connected
to the vehicle’s ACC wiring. Failure to do so can result in damage to
the vehicle if a short circuit develops between the vehicle connection
point and the mobile video product.
For safety reasons, when changing video media, it is recommended
that the vehicle is not in motion, and that you do not allow children to
unfasten seat-belts to change video media or make any adjustments
to the system. System adjustments can be accomplished using
the remote control, while seat-belts remain fastened. Enjoy your
AUDIOVOX entertainment system but remember that the safety of all
passengers remains the number one priority.
An LCD panel and/or video monitor used for television reception,
video or DVD play that operates when the vehicle is in gear or when
the parking brake is not applied must be installed to the rear of the
driver seat where it will not be visible, directly or indirectly, to the
operator of the motor vehicle.

IR TRANSMIT AND RECEIVE MODES (M1 OR M2)
The AVXMTG13UA has an option that allows the user to select from two IR transmit and receive modes (M1 or M2). This feature can be used when
two AVXMTG13UA units are installed in the same vehicle or if the vehicle has an RSA (Rear Seat Audio) that uses “A” channel headphones. When
in the M1 mode the unit will transmit audio on the A channel. When in the M2 mode the unit will transmit audio on the B channel. If two of these
units are used in one vehicle it may help to mark one remote with M1 on the back and the other remote with M2 on the back. A unit set to M2
mode will not work with a remote control programmed to the M1 mode. Conversely, a unit set to M1 mode will not work with a remote control
programmed to the M2 mode.
To change from M1 to M2 mode, point the remote control towards the IR receiver on the AVXMTG13UA. Press and hold the M2 button for 5 to 7
seconds. The following screen will be displayed:
Note: The OSD will appear on the screen for 4 – 5 seconds.
To change from M2 to M1 mode, point the remote control towards the IR receiver on the AVXMTG13UA. Press and hold the M1 button for 5 to 7
seconds. The following screen will be displayed:

GENERAL VEHICLE INSTALLATION APPROACH
1.
2.
3.
4.
Decide upon the system configuration and options that will be installed.
Review all manuals to become familiar with electrical requirements and hookups.
Decide upon the mounting locations of all components and the method of mounting.
Prep the vehicle. Remove any interior trim necessary to gain access to vehicle's wiring, as well as all areas where interconnecting wire harnesses
will be located. If any access holes need to be cut into the vehicle, do this now.
5. Route the wiring harnesses in the vehicle as necessary. Refer to the wiring diagrams in this manual, as well as the wiring instructions for the
individual components and accessory options being installed. Ensure that the wiring is protected from sharp edges. Ensure that all wiring is not
pinched when all components and interior trim are fully installed. Leave enough slack in the wiring at each component to allow working room.
6. Remove all A/V system components from their packaging and place them loosely in the vehicle at their respective locations.
7. Connect all components together and verify the proper operation of all system functions.
Note: This is best done BEFORE components have been permanently mounted.
8. After verifying proper operation of the system, proceed to mount each component.
9. When all components are mounted, recheck the function of the entire system. Ensure that no wiring was pinched or connected improperly during
final installation
10.Dome light wiring must be carefully planned due to the design of vehicle electrical systems. Some vehicles use an electronic module (i.e. Body
Control Module) to turn the dome lights on and off. Care must be used to avoid damage to these types of electronic modules or damage to
the dome light circuit in the DVD overhead.
General guidelines for dome lamp wiring:
1.If it is not certain how the dome lamps tie into the vehicle electrical system, wire the dome lamp circuit (of the DVD overhead) to the driver’s
door pin switch.
2. Follow the instructions on page 11 and 12.
3. Contact the Audiovox tech support line if you have any questions regarding dome lamp wiring.
9
VEHICLE PREPARATION
1.Locate an accessory +12v power source with a good ground. These wires can be found at the ignition switch or fuse-box.
Power Source
• +12v when the key is in the ACC. and run positions.
• 0v when the key is OFF.
2.The mounting method and location will vary from vehicle to vehicle, the only focus of this manual is the installation of the AVXMTG13UA and
related console accessories.
3.Generally, the best location for the video monitor is where the vehicle’s factory dome light is installed. The monitor should be located in such
a manner that it can be comfortably viewed by rear seat passengers.
NOTE: NEVER INSTALL THE MONITOR IN A PLACE WITHIN THE DRIVER’S VIEW. THIS IS NOT ONLY DANGEROUS, BUT IT IS ALSO ILLEGAL IN MANY
STATES.
4.Once the mounting location of the monitor has been determined, additional preparation work may be necessary, depending on the vehicle
structure and installation method. Some of the steps that may be required are:
a. Removal of the vehicle’s dome light.
b. Cutting an opening in the headliner to install the mounting bracket.
10
CONNECTING THE DOME LIGHTS
The dome lights in the video monitor require three connections to the vehicle’s wiring. There are two common types of dome light circuits used,
positive switched systems or negative switched systems. Positive switched systems supply voltage to the interior lights to turn ON; negative
switched systems apply ground to illuminate the bulbs.
To determine which system you have to locate the wires at the dome light:
•
On a positive switched system, with all the doors closed and the lights out, both wires at the dome light will rest at ground. When the light is
activated, one of these wires will switch to +12 VDC. This is the vehicle’s switching wire.
•
On a negative switched system, with all the doors closed and the lights out, both wires at the dome light will rest at +12 VDC. When the light
is activated, one of these wires will switch to ground. This is the vehicle’s switching wire.
For positive switched systems, connect the Purple / Brown (Lamp Auto) wire to the vehicle’s switched wire. Then connect the Red / Black (Lamp
ON) wire to a fused constant 12 volt source and the Black / Red (Lamp Common) wire to a good ground. Positive switched systems are commonly
found on Ford vehicles. For negative switched systems, connect the Purple / Brown (Lamp Auto) wire to the vehicle’s switched wire. Then connect
the Red / Black (Lamp On) wire to a good ground and the Black / Red (Lamp Common) wire to a fused constant 12 volt source. Negative switched
systems are commonly found on General Motors and import vehicles.
NOTE: Some vehicles which incorporate transistorized control of the dome light circuit, such as the 1999 Dodge Caravan, may require that the
Purple / brown (Lamp Auto) wire be connected to the door pin switch wire, as the additional current draw of the monitor’s lights may not be
supported by the output of the vehicle’s body control computer.
After wiring the dome lights make sure the dome lights operate properly with doors opening and closing and that they are not always
on. Do not leave the dome lamp switch on the DVD overhead in ON position as this will drain the battery over time.
