Our take on the Audiovox AVXMTG10UA

by Buck Pomerantz

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 10.1" widescreen display. Its 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 AVXMGT10UA features inputs for each, so your passengers can enjoy music or videos (in MPEG1-2 or AVI formats) when there isn't a DVD or CD handy.

This overhead monitor includes a set of built-in dome lights, handy for finding the right DVD at night.

Works as expected

Written By Gmoney1234, New York, Bronx on Friday, August 09, 2013
It worked as expected. I had a previous 7" model that the dealership had sold us with our Odyssey, but that model was installed incorrect from start and so we had a lot of problem with turning it on and watching movies. It finally gave out so we purchased this one and connect it straight to the existing wires, works as expected. We have it now over 8 months and our children is enjoying it. Thanks crutch field.
Works right out the box, at least in our case
No wireless headphones

works perfect in my 11 Acadia

Written By Mike S., Alameda, CA on Saturday, July 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
the FM modulator is garbage. i have to change stations alot while driving. keep this in mind if you dont have the ability to hard wire it to your stereo. or purchase a set of IR headphones so you dont have to worry about running wires. i also purchased a car show head unit for my car and ran the audio wires to the deck and it sounds perfect. kids love it as well. im planning to buy IR headphones for them so i can still have my stereo on long trips.
easy to install and looks like a factory unit in my car. love the different trim rings for different color cars.
needs to have a IR remote sensor so you can control the unit from the front of the car while driving. fm modulator is garbage.

Not so Great

Written By Sundevilz76, Gulf Coast on Thursday, September 06, 2012
Not a bad unit to install, my complaint is sometime the RF works when you first start the car (as designed). But sometime you have to turn the RF feature off on the DVD player then turn it back on to get it to work. A pain for a unit at this price - I would expect from a cheap brand with a cheap price.

Audiovox MTG unit in 08 Odyssey

Written By Marc, Williamsburg, VA on Monday, August 06, 2012
Overall a decent player. The screen is clear and bright. Device looks acceptable, though the beige snap on facings are more of a putty color than the Odyssey's beige interior. Sound with IR headphones is very good. Screen size is very comfortable for movie watching in the 2nd and third rows. Last position memory is helpful. Remote works fine. The install was done by an installcard dealer/ installer. There was no added cost for putting it in under the sunroof and there is no interference with the sunroof functionality. The FM modulator is not acceptable in my opinion, even on stations where nothing is transmitting. In the odyssey, it is easy to connect a 6 foot male-male audio cord between the AUX jack and the unit without the wire getting in the way. Not ideal but also not too difficult. This is infinitely easier than switching FM stations whenever there is interference. The 10 Inch screen does block the rear view in the 2008 Honda Odyssey, almost completely. Warm up time is about 20 seconds after you turn the car on. My kids have told me that there are a couple of skips while watching a previously unopened disc. I did not notice this while driving.

Screen size and quality is ideal for rear of minivan entertainment Sound is good through stereo or IR head phones
Blocks rear view mirror FM modulator is not worth using and there is no hard wire option. These things should probably all be hard wired to the stereo.

2 questions already asked

What is the limit of an external hard drive hooked up to this? It states that the SD card is maxed out at 4 gigs. Does the USB have a cap on it or can I hook a 1 terabyte portable HD to this? [ Billy  Mar 17, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: On the Audiovox site, it shows a 4 GB limit on SD cards but doesn't mention USB. I'd stick to the conventional limits for the head units: 255 folders/65,025 (255 files per folder) To be sure, contact Audiovox directly at 800-887-2557. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Mar 18, 2014 ]
is there an option to put the audio over the car stereo? Does it have external speakers?? [ Please help  Mar 16, 2014 ]
2 answers
  • For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy Staff  Apr 10, 2014 ]
  • As long as you have an Aux Input on your car stereo. There is an output on the Audiovox Unit that allows you to run an Aux Cable to your car stereo and play the sound through your speakers. Just make sure you get a long enough cable to reach. [ KEVIN   Mar 17, 2014 ]
