    2-DIN Chassis: The NVG-606W has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double DIN" or size DD), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. Unlike many in-dash monitors, there is no hideaway box; all the inputs and outputs are included within the unit's chassis. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to verify fit with your vehicle.

    6.5" Touch-Screen LCD Monitor: The NVG-606W double-DIN DVD receiver features a 6.5" TFT Active Matrix, 16:9 touch-screen LCD display with an adjustable viewing angle.

The unit's double-DIN face is fixed. The DVD-slot is front-loading and sits above the screen so there is no extra step to slide-out the face to insert a disc.

    Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the displays brightness, sharpness, color, contrast and tint from 0 to +20.

    AM/FM Tuner: The Valor NVG-606W features a built-in AM/FM tuner with up to 48 station presets. The unit features 3 FM bands and 1 AM band which can hold 12 radio stations each.

    • Preset EQ: The receiver's EQ features the following preset selections - Flat, Jazz, Pop, Classical, or User.
