DVD Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

SD-Card Slot: The Audiovox AXDVD1 features a front-panel SD-card slot for playback of music, video, and photo files stored on a SD memory card.

USB portable audio players that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the front-panel USB port (max. 500mA).

MP3/AVI/JPEG Playback: The AXDVD1 supports playback of MP3 music files, AVI video files, and JPEG photo files recorded onto disc, USB, or SD card.

Off Insert w/ Auto Playback + Auto Reload: When a disc is inserted with the power off, the unit will automatically power up and begin playback. If the ejected disc is not removed within 15 seconds, the disc is automatically inserted again into the loading slot to protect it from dust.

Screen Saver/Auto Off: When you leave the player in Stop mode for more than 20 minutes, the Screen Saver is activated (when turned-on in menu). At the end of 30 minutes without any user interaction, the player switches off automatically.

Mounting Options: The Audiovox Automotive DVD Player can be installed under the seat, in the glove box, or in the trunk area. The DVD player should be installed in a horizontal position with no more than a 30° angle. Four machine screws are supplied to attach the two included metal L-brackets to the player for proper installation. The included self-tapping screws secure the brackets and player in your vehicle.

IR Remote Control (w/ external IR Receiver: The Audiovox Automotive DVD Player comes with an IR remote control for wireless operation of the unit.

Make sure to install the IR receiver in a location where the infrared beam will not be blocked or interrupted when using the player's remote control.

Repeat/Random/Program: When listening to music, you can shuffle the order of the tracks. You can also repeat a chapter, title, or all tracks. The A-B Repeat function performs a point-to-point repeat playback on a DVD.  In Program Play mode, you can play music tracks in a desired sequence.

Zoom: You can choose to zoom in to a scene. The available zoom ratios are 2x, 3x, and 4x. When you are zoomed in, you can pan the image.

Parental Control allows you to limit the content of movie playback from Kid Safe to Adult. Once setup up, the Parental Lock is released only by entering a 4-digit pass-code.
