¡Park your car in a safe place with pulling the side brake (parking
brake) lever before watching the monitor.
¡A rear monitor (option) displays moving picture while driving.
Note: Be sure to connect the side brake (parking brake) connection lead. (a page 88)

¡Picture might not be displayed, or it might take more time than usual to display picture in low temperature.
Also, movement of picture might become labored, or picture quality might deteriorate in low temperature.
[practicable temperature: 32 °F to 104 °F (0 °C to 40 °C)]
¡Do not touch the LCD (liquid crystal display).
If you touch the LCD, your fingerprints are conspicuous because the surface of the LCD was specially
processed.
¡In some cases, noise is generated. It depends on the position or direction of a mobile phone and a CB transiever,
etc. Change the position or direction of the mobile phone and a CB transiever, etc. or keep them away from the unit.
ID Code
Prior to operating this unit, it is a advisable to assign your 4-digit ID code for security. (Make sure to use four digits for ID
code.)
Once the ID code has been set, the unit cannot be operated if the main power supply is disconnected then re-connected. It
is electronically locked so that a thief could not use the stolen unit unless that person knows the code you have set.
The ID code operation must be performed only by the person to whom the unit belongs.
Generally, it is not necessary to enter the ID code each time when using the unit if it has never been disconnected from the
main power supply (car battery). For the ID code setting procedures, see pages 42-43.
Caution: Record your registered ID code and keep it in a secure location. If you forget it, you will be unable
to use the unit. If you cannot operate the unit because you forget the ID code, please consult your nearest Panasonic
Servicenter.
ID Code Input
Enter the ID code after turning on the power and activating the display.
For Installation
The product should be installed in a horizontal position with the front end up at a convenient angle, but not more than 30˚.
The user should bear in mind that in some areas there may be restrictions on how and where this unit must be installed.
Consult your dealer for further details.
Success
Note: When you fail in entering the ID code, a screen on the right is displayed and
the unit beeps three times. Enter a correct ID code.
If you fail to enter the correct ID code three times consecutively, the power is turned
off. Turn on the power again and enter a correct ID code in this case.

Recommended system: 5.1-channel Surround System
Advanced system
This unit has a built-in 5-channel amplifier. The procedure for setting up a 5.1-channel surround
system in order to play DVD software in a way that creates a “you are there” feel in a car is
described below.
Connecting devices shown below allows you to enjoy a wonderful world consisting of wide
variety of pictures and sounds.
Be sure to connect the display unit and hide-away unit with optical fiber cable.
Front Speakers: CJ-DVD177
Subwoofer: CJ-HD302
Use the left and right front speakers (such as
speakers that are built into the front door).
Because the audio imaging is not nearly as dependent
on the position where the subwoofer is installed as it
is with the other speakers, the subwoofer can be
installed anywhere that is convenient. (A separate
power amplifier for the subwoofer is needed.)

What is MP3?
MP3, short for MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3 LSF (Low Sampling Frequency), is a standard for compressing digital video data adopted for video CDs and similar media. It is one of the audio compression systems covered by
MPEG's (Motion Picture Experts Group) digital audio compression standards. What it does is reduce the number of bytes
in a song without detracting from the sound quality by eliminating big sound waves within the sound range that is imperceptible to the human ear. This compression allows you to reduce the contents of a conventional music CD by a factor of
around 10. This means that you can record the contents of 10 music CDs on a single CD-R or CD-RW. (The figures refer
to data recorded on a 650 MB CD-R or CD-RW at a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps and a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz.)
: MP3 files are included

Points to Remember When Recording an MP3 Disc
1
5
¡Do not record files other than MP3s or unnecessary folders on a disc. If many folders or files other than MP3s
are recorded on a disc, it may take some time before playback starts.
¡Use ISO 9660 file system (Extension of the ISO 9660 file systems are included.) (a page 33). APPLE HFS file
system is not supported. If they do not conform to ISO 9660 file system, the file may not play normally, or the file
or folder names may not be displayed correctly.
¡Make sure to add the “.mp3” extension to each MP3 file name. A file with a different file name extension or none
at all will not play.
¡Although Multi session recording is supported, the use of Disc-at-Once is recommended. Make sure to close the
session when you finished recording on a disc.
¡A disc recorded by the packet writing software are not supported.
¡A playlist function is not supported. Record files and folders in the order in which you want them to be played.
Some writing software lets you specify the recording order by adding a prefix in the range of “01” - “99”, etc. to the
file name. For details refer to the user manual of your writing software.
Notes:
¡You may encounter trouble in playing MP3s or displaying the information of MP3 files recorded with certain writing
softwares or CD recorders (CD-R/RW drives).
¡If a disc contains both MP3 and CD-DA, only CD-DA data is reproduced properly. (MP3 files are played but no
sound is output).

What is Sirius Satellite Radio?
100 channels of the best in-car entertainment
Only Sirius has 60 original music channels, from today's
hits to R&B oldies to classical masterpieces. From
authentic country and real bluegrass to cool jazz, hot
latin, reggae, rock and many more. Plus 40 channels of
world-class sports, news and entertainment, like ESPN,
The Speed Channel, CNBC, Fox News, Radio Disney and
E! Entertainment Radio.
Rely on Sirius rocket science for superior coverage
Only Sirius has three powerful satellites that fly in figureright orbits to ensure coast-to-coast coverage. These
orbits allow Sirius satellites to broadcast a high angles
for a “clear line of sight” and a direct signal to our car.
Count on S>PLEX technology for superior sound
resolution
Sirius employs S>PLEX technology (statistical multiplexing), which optimizes the fidelity on each channel to give
you superior digital sound. So rock really soars, jazz really jams and country really sings.
Once you experience 100 channels for digital entertainment, you will never want to leave your car. For more
information, visit sirius.com
With Sirius, the emphasis is on the music and entertainment you want. Our music is hosted by Master Music
Programmers and on-air personalities who are true
experts. They back up the music with compelling information about the song being played, and they understand
that sometimes it is best to just let the music speak for
itself.

Cautions:
¡This is to remind you that compression or extension of the screen using the aspect ratio (screen mode)
changing function of this product for commercial purpose of profit making or viewing/listening by the public
could infringe on the rights of the author protected by the copyright law.
¡If you expand normal picture (4 to 3) by using “JUST”, “ZOOM” or “FULL” aspect to the full of the screen, you
might not see the periphery of the picture, or you might see a distorted picture. Therefore, use the “NORMAL” mode to see the original picture as the author intended it.

Warning
¡Do not install the monitor in a location which
obstructs driving, visibility or which is prohibited by
applicable laws and regulations. If the monitor is
installed in a location which obstructs forward visibility
or operation of the air bag or other safety equipment or
which interferes with operation of the car, it may cause
an accident.
❏ Identify All Leads
¡Never use bolts or nuts from the car's safety devices for
installation. If bolts or nuts from the steering wheel,
brakes or other safety devices are used for installation
of the monitor, it may cause an accident.
The first step in installation is to identify all the car wires
you’ll use when hooking up your LCD monitor.
As you identify each wire, we suggest that you label it
using masking tape and a permanent marker. This will
help avoid confusion when making connections later.
¡Attach the wires correctly. If the wiring is not correctly
performed, it may cause a fire or an accident. In particular, be sure to run and secure the lead wire so that it
does not get tangled with a screw or the moving portion
of a seat rail.
7-5/32” (182 mm)
Note: Do not connect the power connector to the display
unit until you have made all connections. If there are no
plastic caps on the hooking wires, insulate all exposed
leads with electrical tape until you are ready to use them.
Identify the leads in the following order.

Installation Guide
Power Lead
If your car has a radio or is pre-wired for one:
Cut the connector wires one at a time from the plug (leaving the leads as long as possible) so that you can work with
individual leads. Turn the ignition on to the accessory position, and ground one lead of the test bulb to the chassis.
ready to begin connecting them to the LCD monitor wires.
The wiring diagram (a page 84-93) shows the proper connections and color coding of the leads.
We strongly recommend that you test the unit before making a final installation.
You can set the unit on the floor and make temporary connections to test the unit. Use electrical tape to cover all
exposed wires.
Important: Connect the red power lead last, after you
have made and insulated all other connections.
Touch the other lead of the test bulb to each of the exposed
wires from the cut radio connector plug. Touch one wire at a
time until you find the outlet that causes the test bulb to light.
Now turn the ignition off and then on. If the bulb also turns
off and on, that outlet is the car power lead.
If your car is not wired for an audio unit:
Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for radio
(RADIO) accessory (ACC) or ignition (IGN).
Battery Lead
If your stereo unit has a yellow lead, you will need to locate
the car's battery lead. Otherwise you may ignore this procedure. (The yellow battery lead provides continuous power
to maintain a clock or other functions.)
If your car has a radio or is pre-wired for one:
With the ignition and headlights off, identify the car battery
lead by grounding one lead of the test bulb to the chassis
and checking the remaining exposed wires from the cut
radio connector plug.
If your car is not wired for an audio unit:
Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for the battery,
usually marked BAT.
Speakers (not supplied speaker)
Identify the car speaker leads. There are two leads for each
speaker, usually color coded.
A handy way to identify the speaker leads and the speaker
they are connected with is to test the leads using a 1.5 V
AA battery as follows.
Hold one lead against one pole of the battery and stroke the
other lead across the other pole. You will hear a scraping
sound in a speaker if you are holding a speaker lead.
If not, keep testing different lead combinations until you
have located all the speaker leads. When you label them,
include the speaker location for each.

(continued)
Ground
Connect the black ground lead of the power connector to
the metal car chassis.
Speakers (not supplied speaker)
Connect the speaker wires. See the wiring diagram for the
proper hookups. Follow the diagram carefully to avoid
damaging the speakers and the stereo unit.
The speakers used must be able to handle more than 45 W
of audio power. If using an optional audio power, the speakers should be able to handle the maximum amplifier output
power. Speakers with low input ratings can be damaged.
Speaker impedance should measure 4–8 Ω, which is typically marked on most speakers. Lower or higher impedance speakers will affect output and can cause both speaker and stereo unit damage.
Caution: Never ground the speaker cords. For example, do not use a chassis ground system or a three-wire
speaker common system. Each speaker must be connected separately using parallel insulated wires. If in
doubt about how your car’s speakers are wired, please
consult with your nearest professional installer.
Battery
Connect the yellow battery lead to the correct radio wire or
to the battery fuse port on the fuse block.
Equipment
Connect any optional equipment according to the instructions furnished with the equipment. Read the operating and
installation instructions of any equipment you will connect
to this unit.
Power
Connect the red power lead to the correct car radio wire or
to the appropriate fuse port on the fuse block.
If the LCD monitor functions properly with all these connections made, disconnect the wires and proceed to the
final installation.
❏ Final Installation
Lead Connections
Connect all wires, making sure that each connection is
insulated and secure. Bundle all loose wires and fasten
them with tape so they will not fall down later. Now insert
the LCD monitor into the mounting collar.
Congratulations! After making a few final checks, you’re
ready to enjoy your new LCD monitor.
❏ Final Checks
1. Make sure that all wires are properly connected and
insulated.
2. Make sure that the LCD monitor is securely held in
the mounting collar.
3. Turn on the ignition to check the unit for proper
operation.
If you have difficulties, consult your nearest authorized professional installer for assistance.

Notes on CD-Rs/RWs
¡You may have trouble playing back some CD-R/RW discs recorded on CD recorders (CD-R/RW drives), either due to
their recording characteristics or dirt, fingerprints, scratches, etc. on the disc surface.
¡CD-R/RW discs are less resistant to high temperatures and high humidity than ordinary music CDs. Leaving them inside
a car for extended periods may damage and make playback impossible.
¡The unit may not successfully play back a CD-R/RW that was made by the combination of writing software, a CD
recorder (CD-R/RW drive) and a disc if they are incompatible with one another.
¡This player cannot play CD-R/RW discs if the session is not closed.
¡This player cannot play CD-R/RW discs which contain other than CD-DA or MP3 data (Video CD, etc.).
¡Be sure to observe the handling instructions of CD-R/RW discs.
Dishwashing soap diluted with water
Note: Do not scratch the screen with your nails or other hard objects. The resulting scratches or marks will obscure the
images.
Caution: If water drops or similar wet substances get inside the monitor, it may cause a malfunction.

Definition of Terms
Digital audio output connector (Optical)
The digital audio output connector (optical) converts
electrical signals into optical signals and transfers
them to the amplifier. Consequently, it has a number
of features including its immunity from electrical interference from external sources and its ability to prevent
the generation of noise and its minimal effect on the
external environment.
Interactive DVD
An interactive DVD is DVD software which includes
multiple angles, multiple plot endings, etc.
Dolby Digital
This fully discrete format divides the music signals
into 5.1 channels: Front Left (L), Front Right (R),
Center (C), Left Surround (LS), Right Surround (RS)
and Subwoofer (SW: 0.1 channel) for recording and
playback. The number of channels that are recorded
depends on the software. (1 to 5.1 channels)
LPCM (Linear PCM audio)
In this format, the audio signal is converted to digital
data and recorded in two channels without compression. Because the capacity of a DVD video disc is
large, it can store more data with better accuracy than
a CD.

Dolby Pro Logic
This format records signals from four channels [Front
Left (L), Front Right (R), Center (C), and Monaural
Surround (S)] in two channels, decodes those channels through a Dolby Pro Logic decoder, and then outputs the resulting signals in four channels.
dts
This format requires more data than Dolby Digital, and
provides higher quality surround playback.
Similar to Dolby Digital, this fully discrete format
divides the music signals into 5.1 channels: Front Left
