Important! – Please Read This Manual Before Installing!
Congratulations on your purchase of a Voyager AOM701 LCD Observation Monitor.
With proper installation and use, your AOM701 is designed to provide you with years
of trouble-free operation. This manual contains important information required to
properly install and operate the unit. Please read this manual thoroughly before
beginning.
All Voyager Observation products are strictly intended to be installed as a supplement
aid to standard rear-view mirror systems that may already exist in your vehicle.
Voyager observation products are not intended for use as substitutes for rear-view
mirror devices, or for any other standard motor vehicle equipment required to be
installed on vehicles by law.
While Voyager observation products contribute to improving the vehicle operator’s
field of view, these products are no substitute for proper defensive driving techniques
and observance of traffic laws and motor vehicle safety regulations.
Warnings!
Installation Location
It is unlawful in most jurisdictions for a person to drive a motor vehicle equipped with
a television viewer or screen located at any point forward of the back of the driver’s
seat or in any location that is visible, directly or indirectly, to the driver while
operating the vehicle. The AOM701 product is designed to be used primarily as a rear
observation device in conjunction with closed circuit cameras. In any installations
where the AOM701 is used to display television broadcasts or recorded video
playback, installation location must adhere to local laws and regulations.
Tampering
To prevent electrical shock, DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR CASE. There are
potentially harmful voltages inside the monitor. There are no user serviceable parts
inside. If evidence of tampering is detected, the warranty will be considered void.
Moisture
Your Voyager AOM701 was designed to be water-resistant. While it will withstand
short periods of exposure to moisture, this product does contain sensitive electronic
components and exposure to moisture should be limited by the user / installer. This
product is not designed for applications where constant exposure to moisture or
immersion can be encountered. This unit should NEVER be cleaned with a power
washer or used where direct power washer spray may be encountered.

1. Power/Stand-By Button
The Power / Stand-by Button has two possible operations modes.
a. Manual mode - Turned on manual by the user by pressing the Power #1
button.
b. Stand-by mode - Turned on by a stand by trigger wire generally connected
to the vehicles 12V reverse backup lights.
Manual Mode wiring - For manual mode operation, the AOM701 should be
wired as follows:
ACC (+12V) Red wire should be connected to the vehicles accessory feed.
GND - ground wire should be connected to chassis ground.
Standby Mode wiring - For Standby mode operation, the AOM701 should be
wired as follows:
ACC (+12V) Red wire should be connected to the vehicles accessory feed.
GND - ground wire should be connected to chassis ground.
Standby / Reverse trigger blue wire should be connected to the reverse feed
of the vehicles backup lighting system.
The power button #1 features dual illumination. It will be brighly lit when the
unit is turned on and will be dimly lit when the unit is turned off.
When the unit is turned on all other buttons will be illuminated. When off only
the Power button will be lit.
* Note: Please note that when the unit is in the standby mode, trigger wire is
triggered, the Power button #1 will not function.

2. A/B Input Select Button
This control toggles the active display image back and forth between AV1 and
AV2 inputs. AV1 is the default source for the Blue Stamdby trigger wire.
3. Day/Night Mode Button
This control toggles the unit between “Day” and “Night” LCD illumination
modes. In the “Day” mode, the LCD backlight intensity is at maximum. In
“Night” mode, the LCD backlight is dimmed to a preset level that is more
suitable for low light operation.
4. Picture Adjustment Menu Button
This control accesses an On-Screen-Display (OSD) menu for four LCD picture
adjustments (Brightness, Contrast, Color, and Tint). The first depress of the
button accesses the “Brightness” adjustment. The Volume +/- controls adjust
the level, which is indicated by the bar graph at the bottom of the screen. Each
consecutive depress of the Picture button accesses the adjustment screen for
each picture adjustment. If no buttons are pressed within 6 seconds or controls
other than the Picture and Volume buttons are pressed, the unit will exit the
Picture Adjustment mode.

5. Volume +/- Buttons
This 2-button set of controls adjusts the output volume of the built-in audio
speaker when the audio function is enabled *(see typical system connection
diagram). The “+” button increases output volume. The “-“ button decreases
output volume. Volume level is indicated by the OSD bar graph at the bottom
of the screen.
These buttons also serve as adjustment controls while in the Picture Adjustment
Menu mode (see above section for details).
*Note: The AOM701 requires +12V to be applied to the “Audio Enable” trigger
input in order to activate the built-in speaker. If no audio output is heard from the
speaker regardless of the volume level adjustment, check this connection.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE YOU BEGIN INSTALLATION:
Before drilling, be sure that no cable or wiring is on the other side. Clamp all wires
securely to reduce the possibility of them being damaged during installation and use.
Keep all cables away from hot or moving parts, and electrically noisy components.
Wiring Definitions:
¡ Power connection:
Pin 1
Pin 2
Pin 3
Pin 4
ACC +12V (Red)
Standby Trigger (Blue wire)
Ground (Black wire)
Audio Trigger (Blue w/white stripe wire)
¡
Camera A input:
Connection for camera or camera extension cable
¡
Camera B input:
Connection for camera or camera extension cable
¡
LCD panel:
12-pin DIN cable connection.
Procedure:
1. Choose the monitor, junction box, and camera mounting locations.
2. Install all required cables in vehicle. A ¾” (19mm) hole should be drilled for
passing cables through vehicle walls, barriers, etc. After the intermediate cable is
passed through the hole, install the split grommet (included). If additional cable
protection is required install convoluted tubing over the cable.
3. After cable/wiring has been routed and components are in place, temporarily make
all system connections and perform a system function check. If system does not
operate properly, see the troubleshooting section of this manual.
4. If using an optional PanaVise® stalk mount (available separately), use the
mounting template provided on page 11. Install the PanaVise® mount to the LCD
monitor using the #10 self-drilling screws (included).
**Important: Do not use screws other than those provided with the AOM701.
Void of warranty and serious product damage will occur.

5. There are 2 options for connecting the LCD monitor to the connection cable. If the
application is such that the monitor is in close proximity to the connection cable,
the AOM701 monitor can be connected directly to the connection cable. If the
connection cable is mounted further from the monitor, use the 5’ intermediate cable
included with the AOM701 to connect the monitor to the connection cable. If more
cable length is needed, additional 5’ lengths of the intermediate cable can be
purchased. (See the accessory list at the back of this manual for part number
details.)
6. Connect the 4-pin power harness to vehicle. (See system connection illustration
page 8)
7. Plug camera extension cable (available separately) into AV1or AV2 input connector
on the connection cable. Plug observation camera into camera extension cable.
8. Make sure all cables are routed away from hot or moving parts, and away from
sharp edges. Secure cables with wire ties.
9. For rear observation applications, range marker stickers have been included with
this product. These markers are designed to adhere to your LCD monitor and
provide a reference for gauging distance. See page 9 for illustration showing proper
use and installation of the range markers
