Motorized, 6.5" Wide Touchscreen
Monitor: The IVA-D105 has a motorized 6.5" wide, touchscreen monitor (with 16:9
aspect ratio) that serves as a video monitor and system information display.

touchscreen features "PulseTouch," which provides tactile feedback, along with
audible and visual confirmation, to the user to confirm the input of commands.
It uses different vibrations and pressures that simulate what it feels like when
you tap a real button, hold a button down, move a slider or touch where no
screen commands exist.

When the Automatic Opening/Closing mode is set to "Full," the monitor
automatically opens when the ignition key is turned to the "Acc" or

angle by pressing the "Open/Flat" button on the front panel. After 10 seconds in
the flat position, the monitor moves back to its original angle.
Video Lock-out Feature: For
safety and legal reasons, the IVA-D105 features a video lock-out feature to

position. The vehicle's parking brake must be engaged, disengaged, and engaged
again while the foot brake is held in.
Backlighting is provided by a fluorescent light built into the liquid crystal

of the monitor bright
