Installation precautions

Choose a mounting location in your vehicle where the unit will not distract or otherwise interfere with the driver’s ability to control the vehicle.

Do not install components in areas which are susceptible to rain, moisture, direct sunlight, extreme heat or cold, excessive dust, dirt or humidity.

If installation requires drilling holes or other modifications to the vehicle, consult with your nearest dealer or professional car audio installer.

Use only the installation parts and hardware provided with the unit to ensure proper installation. Using other parts can cause malfunction and possible damage to your video monitor.

Use only a power source with 12 Volts DC (negative ground).

Before final installation, temporarily connect the wiring according to the diagram near the end of this manual, check it to ensure that it has been connected properly, and test the unit to make sure it is working correctly.

After the monitor is installed, do not arbitrarily pull it down or strike it. This may loosen the mounting screws and cause it to fall down.

Monitor installation

If you have any doubts about this type of installation, please consult your local mobile electronics retailer. Making holes in the roof of your vehicle will cause damage which is expensive to repair.

INSTALLATION TIP

Make a MOUNTING BRACKET out of wood. This bracket mounts under the headliner, and provides a mounting surface to which the housing of the flip-downmonitor can be attached.
