Axxera's AV604Bi DVD receiver features Bluetooth®, DVD/CD playback, a front USB input, and a microSD card input. Its redesigned graphic user interface (GUI) provides you a complete multimedia experience for your car. The icon-based controls on its 6.2" LCD touchscreen display mean you don't have to dig through menus to find your source. Simply press on the touchscreen icon and you're there.
Bluetooth gives you hands-free calling convenience, plus a wireless connection to the songs stored on your compatible music player. Axxera includes an external Bluetooth microphone which you can place in a good spot in your vehicle for superior hands-free communication.
You'll enjoy your MP3 and WMA music using the front USB input, DVD/CD player, and microSD card slot. You can also use the USB input to connect your iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad® for control, charging, and play back of your tunes.
Use the AV604Bi's front or rear analog audio/video inputs to hook up your favorite portable audio player, game console, or another video source. This receiver boasts two video outputs to send movies to rear video screens, so you can keep your crew entertained on the longest road trips. If you've got a big vehicle, you'll appreciate the input for a rear-view camera — helpful for when you're maneuvering your vehicle in tight spaces.
Once you've picked your music, you can tweak it with the four EQ presets. If you're adding amps, you'll appreciate the three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs for an ultra-clean signal for your amps.Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
Video receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD or downloaded video through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most video receivers feature a USB input for iPod audio, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen.
I wanted a radio for my 06 F350 to replace the stock 6 cd changer radio. (CDs are so last week). I wanted SD, USB, and A/V inputs. Installation was easy thanks to CF. My backup camera works well with the unit. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles so this does a very good job. I probably will not play a DVD in it but it has this capability.
Pros: Price (especially with the scratch and dent dept.) Easy to use Good value.
Cons: Not a name brand (but who really cares?)
Nice stereo but no instructions and should have place to attach mic.
I installed this unit in a Suzuki SX4. It fit the opening well and it fit better using the OEM radio chassis bracket using the Metra mounting kit's face plate. I was misled by the description "Steering Wheel Compatible Built In" and that was the final deciding criteria for me purchasing this unit. I was under the assumption that that meant it was "plug and play" with my car's steering wheel controls. What it meant was that an interface adapter was not required. I had to make a couple of calls to Crutchfield in helping me to splice the two wires for this on the car's harness. You can forget going to the Dual/Axxera website for help as it provides zero support. Their site even took numerous attempts to navigate just to register the product for warranty. One other thing, if you buy this unit, and I guess this would also apply to most aftermarket head units, you will have to upgrade your car's speakers over the OEM cheap paper cone units as they will sound like crap with a higher performing aftermarket unit. So far I'm satisfied with the Axxera AV604Bi but time will tell if I made a good choice.
Pros: Price point and features
Cons: Manufacturer's website is a joke. Crutchfield should do a better job in explaining steering wheel control built in.
This is a decent A/V radio with just a few complaints.
Pros: 1.) Easy installation 2.) Quality unit above the unit price
Cons: 1.) The audio portion is exceptionally "bassy" without much chance of adjusting it out. 2.) The USB won't charge your phone. 3.) The bluetooth interface could be easier to interact with.
Love it! Visually it's nice and the sound quality is great!
Pros: Comes with all the installation equipment and is easy to install
Cons: Haven't found one

6.2" LCD Touchscreen: The Axxera AV604Bi features a 6.2" LCD touchscreen monitor (800x480) with LED backlighting. This unit's touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics make menu navigation simple and intuitive. You can adjust the screen's brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue.
Note: In addition to the 6.2" LCD touchscreen, the unit also has three hard-key buttons and a 3-way rotary dial on the front-panel along the left edge of the screen.
Parking Brake Detection: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the pink wire of the included harness must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.
2-DIN Chassis: The AV604Bi has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

The unit supports playback of MP3/WMA music files and JPEG photo files stored on a compatible USB MSC device (up to 32GB).
Note: Not compatible with newer Android (Honeycomb/Ice Cream Sandwich/Jelly Bean/KitKat) devices.
iPod/iPhone Direct: The Axxera AV604Bi's front-panel USB port allows you to connect your iPod/iPhone via the included Dock- or Lightning-to-USB cable that comes with your iPod/iPhone (not included with the head unit). This USB 1-Wire for iPod/iPhone connection provides audio playback (for both stored music & music apps), metadata display, control, and charging of select iPod/iPhones through the Axxera DVD receiver.
iPod/iPhone Compatibility Chart: The Axxera AV604Bi is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features (as of 10/28/2014):
|Apple Device||Generation||Tested Version||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Bluetooth||Charge|
|Audio||Video||Head Unit||iPod/iPhone||Album Art||Artist/Song Text||Track Info||Phone||Audio|
Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.
Bluetooth (v2.0) Technology: The Axxera AV604Bi features built-in Bluetooth (Ver 2.0) Technology. With built-in Bluetooth, you can wirelessly connect your Bluetooth capable mobile phone to listen to calls through your car's audio system. You can also stream audio from a Bluetooth enabled audio player. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles - HFP (Hands Free Profile), A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), & AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
Note: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the AV604Bi. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the AV604Bi.
MOSFET Amplifier: The Axxera AV604Bi is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the AVH614BH are as follows:
Note: The power specifications for the AV604Bi are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.
4V/6Ch RCA Outputs: The AV604Bi features front, rear and subwoofer 4-volt RCA outputs. The front and rear speaker RCA outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer RCA output is non-fading.
EQ: The Axxera DVD receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Jazz, Rock, Classical, Pop, & Off) to customize your music listening.
Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume.
Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation (this can be turned On or Off).
AM/FM Tuner: The Axxera AV604Bi features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, & preset tuning. The built-in AM/FM tuner allows you to store up to 18 FM station presets and 12 AM station presets. You can tune your presets manually or have the head unit do it automatically. The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals. You can switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.
Dual AV Inputs/Video Outputs: The Axxera AV604Bi DVD receiver is fitted with two audio/video inputs. There is a front-panel 3.5mm audio/video input for connecting a temporary external AV source, such as a MP3 player or game console. There is also a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA input for connection of a permanent external audio/video source, such as a Blu-ray player or TV tuner. In addition, the DVD receiver features two rear-panel composite video outputs for integration of a ceiling-mounted or headrest entertainment system in your vehicle.
Rear-View Camera Input: The Camera Input consists of a Composite video RCA jack for connecting an optional rear-view back-up camera (sold separately). This RCA input enables you to connect a rear-view camera to display the area behind your vehicle. The increased view encourages and facilitates safer driving. When an optional rearview camera is connected to this unit, the rear view image is displayed on the screen when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (orange wire of the harness must be connected to reverse light wire of vehicle). Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.75 seconds. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

It's Illegal to view a DVD while operating a motor vehicle. Some people have found that by grounding the parking break wire off the back dongle to the unit allows them to play DVD's but that is both dangerous and illegal [ PAUL T Nov 12, 2014 ]
Video from the DVD will not show while you are driving. With many units the audio will continue (in case you have a secondary monitor attached), but the in-dash display will not display video without the parking brake being engaged. [ Jeff Nov 11, 2014 ] Staff
