Axxera does too, so they've come out with a single-DIN (2" tall) touchscreen receiver that'll fit almost anybody's budget — the AV7118Bi DVD receiver not only upgrades your car's cosmetics with a big 7" screen, but also gives you Bluetooth® and some cool new entertainment options too.

The retractable screen angles back, so check your dash to make sure it won't hit anything or block any important vents when it opens.

Bluetooth® steps up your game

I never realized what I was missing until I added a Bluetooth receiver to my car. Hands-free calling cuts down on distractions — a real win. But the clincher for me was audio streaming. This receiver allows you to listen to all the content that you enjoy on your smartphone without having to plug in. Stored music, streaming services, podcasts — with almost any phone, whatever you like is there to enjoy.

Get your ride rockin'

Like most of us, you probably listen to your music from a variety of sources, and the AV7118Bi has the bases covered. Plug your iPod® or iPhone® into the front-panel USB input and you'll browse playlists from the receiver's touchscreen. You can plug in thumb drives and microSD cards with your favorite collections, while front and rear aux inputs let you jack in a variety of other devices. And of course, there's an AM/FM tuner for when you need your radio fix.

7-band EQ

You can use the 7-band graphic EQ to shape the sound. Ready to build a system? A full set of preamp outputs makes it a lot easier to add amps or a powered subwoofer.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

Smartphone note: If you're going to use your smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    7" Motorized-Retractable Touchscreen: The Axxera AV7118Bi features a motorized-retractable 7" LCD touchscreen monitor (800x480) with LED backlighting. This unit's touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics make menu navigation simple and intuitive.

    • Auto Open/Close: The 7" monitor automatically opens when the unit is turned On and automatically retracts when the unit is turned Off (this feature is non-defeatable). You can manually close the monitor, if you are not using the touchscreen while still listening to music. You can then manually re-open the monitor when it is needed.
    • Screen Adjustments: You can adjust the angle of the screen in 5-steps for better visibility. You can also adjust the screen's brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and sharpness level; as well as select from three different wallpapers/backgrounds.
    Note: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the pink wire of the included harness must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    Detachable Front-Panel: The Axxera AV7118Bi features a detachable front-panel to deter theft. The front-panel consists of a secondary LCD and hard-key controls.

    • Secondary LCD: In addition to the 7" motorized-retractable monitor the AV7118Bi features a secondary single-line LCD. This display can be used during music playback for track & song information. You will need to use the 7" LCD touchscreen for menu functions and to view video.
    • Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the unit's LCD touchscreen controls, the Axxera receiver also features hard-key controls along the front-panel; including a 3-way rotary dial.

    Remote Control: The Axxera AV7118Bi comes with an IR remote and supports many vehicle's steering wheel controls (adapter required).

    • IR Remote Control: The AV7118Bi comes supplied with a 41-button IR remote control which provides wireless operation of the DVD receiver; including Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming functions.
    • Optional Steering Wheel Control Interface: The unit features a SWC (steering wheel control) input and is compatible with a PAC or Metra steering wheel control interface adapter (sold separately - see accessory tab), so you can keep your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls.

    Axxera (Dual) iPlug App: The free Axxera (Dual) iPlug app (coming soon) turns your Bluetooth connected Apple iOS or Android OS device into a wireless remote control for the Axxera AV7118Bi receiver. This app controls most of the primary functions of your receiver, including -

    • Power On/Off
    • Source Selection
    • AM/FM Band, Tuning & Presets
    • Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track (for Bluetooth, iPod/iPhone, USB, & microSD)
    • Volume, Mute, & Loudness

    Bluetooth & iPhone Integration

      • Answering A Call: The AV7118Bi allows you to answer a call from the head unit's touchscreen monitor or set the unit to automatically answer an incoming call. Incoming phone call information will be displayed on the unit's LCD monitor, while a ring-tone is heard through your front speakers.
      • Making A Call: You can make a call from the AV7118Bi using the unit's on-screen keypad (0-9) or a call history data log of dialed, received, and missed calls.
    • Wireless Audio Streaming: The Axxera AV7118Bi also allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, or personal music player using a Bluetooth connection. You can control basic music playback functions, such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track, from the AV7118Bi's touchscreen. This unit will also display song/artist information on its touchscreen monitor.

    Notes: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the AV7118Bi. You can only pair and connect one device at a time. The unit will auto reconnect with an already paired device. The Pairing code is "0000".

    • Control: You can use the AV7118Bi's touchscreen to browse your music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, or Composer. You can also control playback functions such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, and Random/Repeat from the receiver's touchscreen.
    • Display: The Axxera AV7118Bi will display your iPod/iPhone's music file information from stored music and select music apps. The head unit will display elapsed playing time, artist name, song/album title, as well as album art.
    • Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.5 seconds.

    [ Gregory C.  May 07, 2019 ]
    When I bought mine I requested the optional service to have a premium made harness wired up prior to shipping and it connected right to my existing wiring. If I remember, the harness and the service cost a tiny bit more but it was worth every penny. I installed in a 2003 Dodge Durango and installation time from start to finish was less than 30 minutes.

    It well clear.
    [ KENNETH  Sep 08, 2018 ]
    Had the same problem with the mounting frame they sent. I aligned the receiver to clear the dash so the screen would come all the way out then made adjustments to mount receiver to frame took a little engineering. It works fine after adjustments.
    [ John  Sep 07, 2018 ]
    Hey it comes out a couple of inches but it has a tilt button where you can tilt it forward or backwards so you will be able to adjust your a/c controls
    [ Wykenya  Sep 06, 2018 ]
    It doesn't come out too far. I put it in a 2005 Hyundai Accent and I had to use a Dremel to shave down the area of the receiver in order for the screen to completely come out.
    [ Henry  Sep 06, 2018 ]
    If it's only a slight lip you should be ok ,
