General precautions

equipment will provide you with years of enjoyable and safe usage.

Installation of this equipment in any portion of a vehicle which impairs or distracts the driver is improper and dangerous assumes no liability whatsoever for failure to follow the proper installation of this product.

Safety precautions

Do not operate this equipment while driving – safe driving should always be your highest priority.

This product should not be installed in a location which allows the monitor screen to be visible to the driver of the vehicle. In some states and countries, the viewing of images on a screeen inside a vehicle is illegal, even by people other than the driver. Be sure that the installation and operation of this system is in compliance with local rules and regulations.

If you have installed the monitor in a position where it is visible to the driver, be sure to install a Safety Cord. Wire this cord to an accessory wire which has +12v power when the ignition is switched on. This will prevent the operaton of the monitor when the engine is running.

If you do not know how to install the Safety Cord, please consult with a mobile video installer in your area, and have this work completed properly before operating the video system.

Do not open or attempt to repair this unit yourself. Dangerous high voltages are present which may result in electric shock. Refer any repairs to a qualified service technician.

Do not attempt to repair a damaged, broken or faulty power cord. Replace it with a new one immediately.

To avoid risk of electronic shock or damage to the monitor, do not permit any of this equipment to become damp or wet from water or drinks. If this does occur, immediately unplug the power cord and send the monitor to your local dealer or service center as soon as possible.

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.

Operating precautions

Turn the unit off when it is not in use.

Avoid dropping any metal objects or inflammable items into the monitor ventilation slots.

Do not place objects on or suspend objects from the power cord, as this may damage the cord.
