About the Eclipse AVN4430
Eclipse and TomTom together
Eclipse and TomTom together
Eclipse combines great-sounding music playback, crisp DVD playback, and the convenience of TomTom portable navigation in the AVN4430 navigation receiver.
GPS navigation: in-dash and portable
A TomTom portable navigator snaps into place to serve as the AVN4430's display. Responsive touchscreen controls let you make system adjustments and choose sources with ease. Enjoy DVD movies while you're parked on the sharp 4.3" screen, or connect a video screen in back so your backseat passengers can enjoy a movie while you're driving.
Pop the TomTom out, and you can use it like any other portable navigator. Take it inside, connect it to your computer and download the latest map updates, plan a trip online, or update your TomTom software. Take it with you in a rental car. When you get back home, just click it back into place on the AVN4430 receiver. You can even download fun stuff from TomTom's site, so you can access traffic and weather information, edit your points of interest, or change the voice that calls out your next turn.
Built-in Bluetooth® and other safety features
Enjoy the convenience and added safety of hands-free calling that built-in Bluetooth provides, no adapter needed. When a call comes in, the receiver mutes your music and you'll hear your caller over your speakers.
Play all your music
Add an optional adapter, and you'll get fingertip control over your iPod® right on the touchscreen. Load up a CD with music files for hours of driving music, or hook up a flash drive full of MP3 files to your USB input. You can add a satellite radio tuner for nearly endless entertainment on the road. A strong amplifier teams up with a premium digital-to-analog converter and 3-band parametric equalizer to deliver clean, powerful sound in your car.
Eclipse makes it easy for you to connect the AVN4430 to your vehicle's steering wheel controls, too. In most cases, you won't need an adapter harness, just a free download from Eclipse's website.
Play it safe with a rear view camera
Add an optional rear-view camera if you own a larger vehicle, if you tow a trailer, or if your vehicle has a blind spot. Put your vehicle in reverse, and you'll see what's behind you on the screen in front of you.

Overview: The Eclipse AVN4430 is a Double-DIN (4" chassis height) Audio/Video/Navigation unit that combines performance with portability. The AVN4430 includes a removable TomTom portable GPS navigation, docked into the front panel. The 4.3" LCD touch screen is used to display the GPS navigation maps and routing information, video from a DVD movie, or the audio and system information. The portable navigation section can be removed and used in another vehicle if desired.
4.3" Widescreen TFT Display: The Eclipse AVN4430 is equipped with a 4.3" WQVGA low-reflection display with touch screen control. The LCD panel has 391,680 pixels (480 x 272 x 3). The motorized screen slides down and out to allow you access to the disc slot. You can also set the display panel to one of 6 angles between up to approximately 30° for best viewing.
Sub-Display: In addition to the 4.3" display on the TomTom portable navigation device (PND), the AVN4430 has a small (7/8"W x 7/16"H) sub-display in the upper left corner of the front panel. The dot matrix sub-display shows the source name as you cycle through the available sources.
Radio Band Switching: If you wish to take the receiver out of the country, the tuner frequencies and interval can be switched on any of four possible regions:
- USA/North America:
- FM: 87.75-107.9 MHz (0.2 MHz step)
- AM: 530-1710 kHz (10 kHz step)
- Asia (includes Europe):
- FM: 87.5-108.0 MHz (0.05 MHz step)
- AM: 522-1629 kHz (9 kHz step)

MP3/WMA Playback: The Eclipse AVN4430 supports playback of MP3 and WMA audio files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs.
USB Interface: The AVN4430 has a female Type A USB jack on a 57" pigtail for playing MP3 files loaded onto a USB Flash Drive (WMA or AAC files on a USB flash drive will not play). You can select music by song title, playlist, artist, album, or genre. The Find feature allows you to use an on-screen keyboard to enter the title of the song you're looking for. Playback preferences include Song Repeat and Shuffle Songs. Note: The PND must be docked for USB playback.
3-Band EQ: You can adjust the 3-band EQ +/-11dB (-6 to +6): Bass (80 Hz), Mid (700 Hz), Treble (10 kHz).
Loudness: The Loudness feature is used to correct for insufficient low and high sounds when listening at low volume. When activated, the Loudness feature provides a +9dB boost at 100 Hz and a +6dB boost at 10kHz.
3-Volt, Low-Impedance Preamp Outputs: To assure a clean, strong signal to connected amplifiers, the AVN4430 has 3 pairs of 3-volt preamp outputs with an impedance of 1000Ω.
Subwoofer Output: In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, there is a dedicated subwoofer preamp out. The sub output has an adjustable output (-6 to +6) and switchable phase (Normal or Reverse). The Crossover point and slope information is not provided for the built-in low pass filter.
A/V Inputs/Outputs: The AVN4430 is equipped with one audio/video input with composite video and stereo RCA audio jacks for connecting a VCR or game console. Video from the A/V input can only be viewed when the vehicle is stopped and the parking brake engaged. The unit also has a composite video output for connecting an external monitor.
Rear View Camera Ready: The AVN4430 has a dedicated rear port for plugging in the optional BEC106 or BEC108 (item number 099BEC106 / 099BEC108) Rear View Camera. The camera is designed to assist you with rear parking or eliminate the dangerous blind spot immediately behind your vehicle. In the setup menu, you can select Auto or Manual operation of the rear view camera. When Auto is selected, and the reverse gear detection wire is properly connected, the image from the rear camera will appear on the LCD panel whenever you put the vehicle in reverse. When Manual is selected, you can view the rear view camera image by simply switching to the Rear View Camera source.
Steering Wheel Controls: The steering wheel remote connections are compatible with voltage detection-type OEM steering wheel remote controls, such as the PAC SWI-ECL2 (item number 127SWIECL2).
Screen Mode: There are three screen aspect modes:
- Normal: displays 4:3 material with black bars on the sides
- Wide: 4:3 material is uniformly expanded horizontally to fill the screen
- Zoom: 4:3 picture is enlarged vertically and horizontally
Picture Adjustments: The display's Tint, Color, Contrast, and Brightness are adjustable.
Display Modes: You can independently enable the AVN4430's sub-display and PND display to switch between Day View and Night View modes when the vehicle lights (parking lights, taillights, license plate lights) are turned on and off. In addition, the orange/white illumination wire in the main power harness must be connected to the vehicle's headlight circuit.
PND Display : You can easily switch between the Navigation screen and the A/V screen on the TomTom PND by pressing the volume knob.
DVD Compatibility: The AVN4430 is compatible with DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, and DVD+RW discs. DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW playback is possible only when the discs are recorded in the Video mode. Discs recorded in the VR (Video Recording) mode, and discs not finalized will not play in this unit.
Safety Video Lockout: For safety reasons, DVD video cannot be viewed on the built-in screen unless the vehicle is stopped and the parking brake is engaged.
Operation Screen: When you want to search for a specific chapter or scene, you can touch the screen to display the Operation Screen. The top of the Operation Screen indicates the title and chapter number, the title elapsed time, the current playback mode, and icons for multiple angles, Dolby Digital, etc. The bottom of the screen provides you with function keys for fast forward/reverse, play/pause, stop, search, menu, and subtitles.
Rear Monitor Output: The AVN4430 has a composite video output to allow you to connect a rear video monitor.
TomTom Portable Navigation: The AVN4430 features a removable GPS navigation unit from TomTom, which can be taken out of the head unit dock and used in a secondary vehicle. The portable navigation device (PND) is equipped with maps of North America (US, Canada, Puerto Rico) on a built-in 2 GB flash memory. Additional maps can be downloaded from the TomTom website and stored on an optional SD memory card. The navigation system uses maps and voice instructions to guide you as you are driving. You can use the unit's touch controls to make menu selections.
GPS: The unit uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) to pinpoint your present location by using latitudinal and longitudinal data received from three or more satellites. The PND has a built-in GPS antenna, and an external GPS antenna is included with the head unit. It should be mounted in a position (inside or outside) with a clear view of the sky.
City Maps: The TomTom navigation system provides detailed street-level maps that make it easier to recognize streets, buildings and various identification points.
Navigation: The 'Navigate to...' menu is the simplest and most useful starting point in most situations. Given your current GPS position, you can use this to navigate to any given address, intersection, favorite location, POI (Point Of Interest), and so on. You can choose from the following options:
- Home: Once your home location is stored in memory, it can be quickly be chosen as a destination.
- Favorite: The locations that you visit frequently can be stored in the Favorite menu. A Favorite can be chosen as a destination without having to enter its address each time.
- Address: This option lets you enter a
specific address as a destination. When you end an address, you can choose
from five options.
- City Center: sets your destination as the center of a city or town
- Street And House Number: sets an exact address as your destination
- Zip Code: enters a Zip Code as your destination
- Cross Street Or Intersection: sets your destination as the point where two streets meet
- Spoken Address: you can verbally enter the address by speaking the state, city, street name, and house number. You can choose to be prompted on screen only, or both on screen and spoken commands.
- Recent Destination: You can display a list of addresses, Points Of Interest and other destinations that you've used recently.
- Points Of Interest: This option lets you choose from a database of approximately 2,988,000 railway stations, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and so on.
- Point On Map: You can use the map browser to select a destination, scroll around the map, zooming in or out as needed.
- My Location: You can select your current GPS location as your destination.
- Latitude/Longitude: This is a calculated route based on Latitude and Longitude parameters.
- Last Docked: This is a calculated route based on the last time the unit was docked in the head unit.
- TomTom Buddy: You can welcome friends and colleagues into your network of "TomTom Buddies". Then if you both wish you can be alerted when a friend is nearby, or you can navigate to where they are.
Text-To-Speech With Speech Recognition: The PND understands the pronunciation of city and street names allowing you to speak an address into the unit. You can also answer questions asked by the unit while driving, so you can keep your eyes on the road with the combination of text-to-speech and speech recognition technology. The GPS unit also announces directions and street names giving you easier guidance and allowing you to focus better on the road ahead.
Rerouting: If you leave the recommended route accidentally (or on purpose), a new alternate route will instantly be recalculated and displayed.
Find Alternative: Once a route has been planned, you can change it using the 'Find alternative...' menu. You can choose from the following options:
- Calculate Alternative: You can find an alternative route if you don't like the original route.
- Avoid Roadblock: If you spot signs of trouble (such as backed-up traffic or 'Delays ahead' warning signs), you can choose this menu option. You need to estimate whether the blockage extends 100 yards, 1/4 mile, 1 mile or 3 miles ahead from your current position and then select the appropriate icon.
- Travel via...: Choose 'Travel via...' if you want to make sure the planned route goes past one particular location, perhaps to pick up or drop someone off. The new location is picked in exactly the same way as you would pick a departure point or destination.
- Avoid Part of Route: This menu option allows you to avoid intersections that are known for heavy traffic.
- Recalculate Original: You can return to the original best route.
- Minimize Traffic Delays: Avoid traffic delays using TomTom Traffic information, a TomTom Plus service
View Route: If you already have a route planned, you can explore it in various ways by choosing 'View route'. You can choose from the following options:
- Browse as Text: This option provides a simple list of the junctions involved and the distances (or times, use the 'Options' button to change the numbers shown) between them.
- Browse as Images: Using this option presents each junction in 3D, with your turn instruction clearly marked.
- Browse Map of Route: This option allows to overlay the route onto a map that you can zoom and scroll around.
- Show Route Demo: This feature shows an animation of your route.
- Show Route Summary: This option allows you to display the graphical overview of your route that was shown when it was first calculated.
TomTom Home: When you connect your PND to your home computer via USB, you can use TomTom Home to download information about GPS satellite positions during the next 7 days. This helps your TomTom PND to find your position faster.
Help Me!: The Help Me! button (found in the main menu) provides an easy way for you to find and contact emergency service centers and other special services. Directions are given if you want to phone for help, drive to help, or walk to help. You can also get the exact address and coordinates of your current location (Where am I?), as well as a First Aid Guide.
TomTom Traffic: TomTom Traffic is available as a subscription for receiving up-to-date traffic information from the best local sources. To use TomTom Traffic, you will need to establish a wireless data communication (GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, CDMA) between your TomTom PND and a Bluetooth enabled phone, and you must have a wireless data subscription with your mobile network provider. When TomTom Traffic is activated, you will be provided the latest traffic information in real-time so that travel becomes smoother and traffic problems are avoided as they occur.
Bluetooth Technology: The PND is equipped with built-in Bluetooth technology, allowing you to make and answer phone calls hands free, promoting safer driving. The microphone and speaker are built into the unit. When the device is removed for use in another car, it still provides Bluetooth hands-free operation.
iPod Interface Ready: The optional iPC-409 iPod adapter (sold separately) allows an iPod portable digital music player, including the iPod touch (1st/2nd generation), classic (80/120/160GB), and iPod nano (3rd/4th generation), to be connected to and controlled by the Eclipse AVN4430. All the iPod's buttons will be disabled when connected to this adapter and the iPod will be controlled from the head unit (the TomTom PND must be docked). Music and videos stored on the connected iPod can be played when connected to the unit. While connected, the AVN4430 will power the iPod, and charge the iPod's battery. You can perform playlist, album, artist, genre, or song searches. Playback functions include track up/down, fast forward/rewind, track repeat, track random play, and album random play. Display selections include song, album, or artist.
Note: This adapter will not charge the iPod touch 2nd generation, or iPod nano 4th generation without the optional Scosche passPORT (142IFWA). The adapter is not compatible with iPhone.
Sirius Satellite Ready: With the optional Eclipse ECLSC1 Sirius Satellite Radio interface (099ECLSC1) combined with the SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle Tuner (607SCC1), you can receive Sirius Satellite Radio programming on the AVN4430 (both items sold separately, also offered as 700SiRECLi package). A subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio is required in order to receive Sirius programming.
XM Satellite Ready: The Audiovox XMDirect2 Eclipse Connection Cable allows you to connect the Audiovox XMDirect2 Universal XM Satellite Radio tuner (package item number 220CNP20UC, sold separately) to the Eclipse AVN726E. The Eclipse Connection Cable and XMDirect2 XM Tuner allow you to receive XM Satellite Radio programming through the multimedia head unit and control XM programming using the touch-screen controls. XM Satellite Radio programming offers over 170 digital radio channels including news, sports, talk, comedy, commercial free music, and other entertainment programming from coast to coast.
