Our take on the Audiovox MTG10U

by Buck Pomerantz
Audiovox

This neat flip-down video monitor and DVD player from Audiovox will keep your backseat passengers occupied and entertained, as they enjoy all their favorite movies and shows on its crisp 10" widescreen display. The built-in FM transmitter beams the sound to your vehicle's stereo system, or you can enjoy peace and quiet up front as your passengers listen through optional wired or wireless headphones.

Like to carry your music and movies with you on a thumb drive or SD™ card? The MGT10U features inputs for each, so your passengers can enjoy MP3s or videos (in MPEG1-2 or AVI formats) when there isn't a DVD or CD handy.

You can connect another audio/video source to the set of RCA auxiliary inputs, and a wireless remote allows your backseat buddies to choose the entertainment. This overhead monitor includes a set of built-in dome lights, handy for finding the right DVD at night.

Works great, instructions skimpy

Written By Richard, Dallas, TX on Monday, July 09, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It works great but the non-verbal installation instructions are completely inadequate and the operation manual is not much better. Note that all the high ratings used professional installers. I would have been flummoxed if I hadn't done this kind of thing before.
Pros:
works
Cons:
bad instructions

Very nice!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Love the DVD. I had Geek Squad install it cause I was nervous about the headliner and it looks great in the Grand Caravan. The tan molding trim matched my interior perfectly. You can listen to it through headphones or the car radio.
Pros:
Great look, much bigger screen than the headrest style.
Cons:
Wireless FM transmitter is a little fuzzy. Technician had some trouble with the dome lights but they're working now.

Audiovox MTG10U

Written By Don, Boise, ID on Sunday, October 30, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I like it and I think you probably will too; since you're reading this review you must be looking for an overhead DVD player, video is easy to see and audio output is clear.
Pros:
So far this DVD player is great I haven't had it for long but the install went well,audio connected directly to the deck and playback has been flawless. I'm hoping to add an X-BOX in the future so I have pre-wired for this (hopefully I've done it right.
Cons:
I did not figure out how to hook up the dome lights.

Outstanding Product

Written By Tom, Virginia Beach, VA on Friday, July 29, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Product is outstanding and has exceeded expectations. I am using the RCA output to hard-wire the sound to my 3.5mm input to my factory Pioneer system. The sound is crisp and clear and the picture is brilliant with outstanding color contrast. The remote works extremely well from either in front of the unit or in the back. If you plan to use the FM modulator, you will likely have static. I recommend using the RCA out. Overall, I am very pleased with this product. I had it professionally installed by Best Buy on my new 2011 Chevy Equinox. I chose this product over the Audiovox aftermarket headrests because I did not want to change my factory headrests (the Audiovox headrests match your fabric material, but they are dimensionally different from your factory headrests, and very pricey-around $1299). At 10 inches, I feel this is a better option (not to mention if it breaks, it is simpler to replace). Product comes with three different plastic colors to choose from to match your interior. Overall with install I spent $500. The factory DVD players would have cost $3500 from GM. I win.
