Important Notice
An LCD panel and/or video monitor may be installed in a motor vehicle and visible to the driver 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.
An LCD panel 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’s seat where it will not be visible, directly or indirectly, to the operator
of the motor vehicle.
Warnings
• 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 a lightly dampened lint free cloth to wipe the screen if it is dirty.
• Lock the LCD screen in the fully closed position when not in use.
• Before putting on headphones always adjust the volume setting to the lowest position.
• Remember to leave the dome light switch in the off or auto positions when the vehicle is unattended, as the dome lights, if left on, can drain
the vehicle’s battery.
• Do not put pressure on the screen.
• Caution children to avoid touching or scratching the screen, as it may become dirty or damaged.

WIRELESS HEADPHONES
The VOD128A includes a built-in infrared transmitter for use with the supplied wireless headphones. The headphone volume is adjusted
using the controls on each headset. Any number of wireless headphones may be used but they must be used within a line of sight from the
transmitter, as infrared transmissions, like visible light travel only in a straight line. See the documentation accompanying your wireless
headphones.
Note: If the monitor is set to M2 mode, the headphones supplied with this unit will not work, as these headphones are single channel. Only
two-channel wireless headphones (Audiovox Model IR2CHS) will work with this unit when set to M2 mode. The only time it is necessary to
set this unit to M2 mode is if there is an RSA (Rear Seat Audio) installed in the vehicle or if two of these monitors are installed in one
vehicle.
