Custom Background Image:
While playing a video or JPEG file, you can capture an image and use the
captured image as your background. When using a JPEG file as the background,
make sure that the resolution is 800 x 600 pixels. The color of the captured
image may look different from that of the actual scene. You cannot
capture copyrighted content and images from the iPod/iPhone.
Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the brightness and
black level of the unit's onscreen display. You can also adjust the contrast,
color, tint, and detail level during video playback. The adjustment level for
each setting is -15 to +15.
Selectable Aspect Modes: You can choose from four aspect
modes for the in-dash display:
- Regular: For 4:3 source material, 4:3 and 16:9 pictures
display with black bars on either side (16:9 images are compressed).
- Full: Expands 4:3 pictures horizontally to fill the
entire width of the screen, distorting the picture slightly but retaining
full image height.
- Panorama: For viewing 4:3 pictures naturally on the
unit's wide-screen display.
- Auto: The correct aspect mode is automatically chosen
based on the incoming signal.
Adjustable Dimmer: When the illumination lead (orange/white)
is connected and the dimmer set to Auto, the display will dim automatically when
you turn on your vehicle's lights. The dimmer can also be set to Off (normal
brightness at all times), On (display is always dimmed), or Dimmer Time Set (you
program the time for the dimmer to turn off an on). The unit also features 3
dimmer levels to choose from - Bright, Middle, or Dark.
Parking Brake Detection: To prevent the display of video
while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire (attached to rear-chassis)
must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot
view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is engaged. If you attempt to
view video without the parking brake engaged, the unit's LCD touchscreen will
simply display "Parking Off". While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake
off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source
information, metadata, and album artwork.

ten options for the menu language; English, Spanish, French, German,
Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Danish, and Russian.
