Our take on the Audiovox AVXMTGHR1D

by Buck Pomerantz
Audiovox

Crisp 7"display

This universal headrest 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 7" widescreen display. Its built-in FM transmitter beams the sound to your vehicle's radio, or you can enjoy peace and quiet up front as your passengers listen through optional wired or wireless headphones.

Music and movies in almost any format

The AVXMTGHR1D can accommodate the music and movies you've stored on a thumb drive or SD™ card, so you and your passengers can enjoy music and videos without even needing a DVD or CD. You can plug almost any other type of audio/video source into the auxiliary input.

Comfort features

A wireless remote allows your backseat buddies to choose their entertainment. This headrest monitor comes with an assortment of support tube adapters to ensure it'll fit in your vehicle properly. The package also includes black, pewter, and shale colored headrest covers so you can pick the look that matches your interior best.

Important Note: This replacement headrest is not for use with the active headrest system found in some vehicles. Replacing such a headrest system could increase the chances of injury in the event of an accident, and may void your vehicle's warranty.

Features

Head Rest Mount: The Audiovox AVXMTGHR1D features a padded vehicle headrest with a beige vinyl cover. The beige cover can be switched out for the included grey and black vinyl covers. The headrest includes through-the-post wiring to make it easy to install the wire in your car seats. The headrest posts are approximately 5.5" in length, with adjustable spacing to accommodate your vehicle's headrest post opening (between approximately 5.125" and 7.3125"). The diameter of steel tubes are 10mm but can be adjusted between 12-17mm using the included post adapters. Once installed, the headrests can be tilted about 15° for the best viewing angle.

7" LCD Monitor: The Audiovox AVXMTGHR1D features an integrated 7" widescreen LCD monitor with LED backlight technology. The LCD monitor has a resolution of 480 x 234 (336,960 total pixels). You can select either a 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio for each monitor. You can also adjust brightness, contrast, color, and tint.

Built-in DVD Player: The Audiovox headrest monitor features a built-in DVD player behind the flip-open LCD monitor. The unit will play back DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, and DVD+R/RW, CD-Audio, and CD-R/RW (MP3 files) discs. The built-in DVD player provides a Parental Protection (G/PG/PG-13/R/NC17/Adult), so you can prevent playback of certain DVD content.

USB Port: The Audiovox AVXMTGHR1D is equipped with a USB (type-A) port for playback of music (MP3) and photo (JPEG) files stored on a USB MSC (mass storage class) memory device formatted in FAT 16/32.

SD-Card Slot: The Audiovox headrest monitor with built-in DVD player features an SD-card slot for playback of music (MP3) and photo (JPEG) files  stored on a SD memory card (up to 4GB).

Dual AV Inputs: The Audiovox AVXMTGHR1D is equipped with two AV inputs which will accept NTSC and PAL. The AVXMTGHR1D is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm AV input and comes with an AV 3.5mm-to-RCA adapter. The headrest monitor also features a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA input. These AV inputs allow you to connect your portable MP3 player, ATSC tuner, and/or game console.

A/V Output: The AVXMTGHR1D is equipped with a composite video/stereo RCA audio output which lets you connect the overhead monitor to your car stereo system.

Integrated FM Modulator: The Audiovox headrest monitor system is equipped with a built-in 16 channel frequency wireless FM modulator. This allows you to listen to the overhead monitor system through your vehicle's FM radio (without a wired connection). Channels include 87.7, 88.1, 88.5,  88.9, 105.7, 107.1, 107.5, and 107.9MHz.

Headphone Compatible: The Audiovox AVXMTGHR1D features an integrated dual channel IR headphone transmitter to transmit audio to an optional set of wireless headphones (sold separately). The Audiovox overhead monitor system also is fitted with a 3.5mm headphone jack which allows the use of a wired set of headphones.

Audio Settings: The Sound Mode feature allows you to apply a preset soundfield effect to the unit's audio output signal. You can choose from Rock, Pop, Live, Dance, Techno, Classic, Soft, or None. The Bass Boost feature increases the audio output's bass response. The Super Base feature further increases the audio output's bass response. The Treble Boost feature increases the audio output's treble response.

Remote Control: In addition to the unit's front-panel controls, the AVXMTGHR1D comes supplied with a full function IR remote control for wireless operation of the headrest monitor.

Great little DVD players

Written By AlanR, Houston, TX on Saturday, March 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought 2 of these DVD players and connected them up in primary/secondary mode which means that a DVD movie playing in one of the headrests can be viewed by the other head rest. For example, I only have one copy of Frozen DVD but but my girls can watch it at the same time.

I was a bit worried about the FM modulator but the audio comes through quite nicely with little/no crackling or interference. The other thing that I noticed is that, at times, if we go over a strong bump in the road, the DVD will stop playing and the kids have to restart it. No big deal and happens very rarely but something to be aware of.

I havent yet tried plugging in an iPad (via the external input availalbe on the headrest) so not sure whether this will work as advertised.

I took off one star for the following reasons: 1. Poor/no instructions in the manual on how to install in primary/secondary configuration 2. The headrest dont quite fit correctly in the seats of my Honda Odyssey 2014. I have used the provided plastic adapters but I noticed that only one of the poles is tight.. Might have to contact Crutchfield/AudioVoxx and see what they suggest
Pros:
* seems to work quite well * good audio
Cons:
* Headrest doesnt yet sit in seat correctly * rough bumps in the road CAN (but dont always) make the DVD player freeze. Needs to be restarted

Do these units have speakers or do you have to use headphones or the dm modulator? [ Pleasehelp  Mar 23, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • You will need headphones as there are no speakers. [ kirby   Mar 24, 2014 ]
Do these video players have the ability to turn off and on automatically with the car? [ Mark  Feb 20, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • If they are wired correctly they will. [ CHRIS   Feb 21, 2014 ]
If I purchase 2, will they link to play the same content? [ Jessica  Jan 28, 2014 ]
2 answers
  • The unit has Audio/Video out and Audio/Video in. You can link the two that way but would have to purchase separate RCA cables to do so. [ Matthew   Jan 28, 2014 ]
  • We only purchased one of them but when we installed it, all of the cables are included to hook them up together. If I understood the instructions clearly, they would play both seperately or simultaneously. It was really easy to install in a 2005 Avalanche too. GOOD LUCK! [ kirby   Jan 28, 2014 ]
Will or can this unit get video signal from factory head unit? [ Mike  Dec 19, 2013 ]
2 answers
  • Check the specifications. In the "output" section, look for terms like "video output" or "AV" output. [ MARQUES   Dec 31, 2013 ]
  • Yes it can [ SHEILA   Dec 19, 2013 ]
How are you hooking up the power to these headrest units? [ Gracian  Apr 15, 2014 ]
