I Know Technically This Should Be in Audio but It Counts Here Too

Hey guys i just bought a new headunit about a week or so ago. i just saw someone post a new headunit thread and it reminded me.... its a double din its a JVC AVX820 check it out tell me what you think...


2 minor issues...

one im trying to wire it so the DVD plays without the parking brake (i know the hazard and everyone will tell me its not safe to watch and drive but even if you dont believe me i wont...) and second is that when i try to tilt or eject a disc when the screen starts to drop down it hits the top of my dash kit causing it to close again so i have to find a way to have it open freely without hitting....

otherwise it works great!!


heres pics!

how do u like it? Is it built in Navi? XM ready?

My 'Balt, Camryn, is my baby. She's a black '09 LT 2.2L with the performance appearance package. I believe that if you take care of your car your car will take care of you.

like i said id really like to get the DVD playing ... but yes it is XM ready just got to wire it it has bluetooth built in everything EXCEPT NAVI that is the one thing it didnt have that i wish it did ... but it has a AV in so lets say you have navi on your Iphone or whatever it can be displayed on the screen... it has dual zone capabilities and also is touch screen .. bunch of stuff im forgetting im sure but its very nice but if i cant get the DVD playing ill be alittle disappointed cause its the main reason i bought this one otherwise i would have gone with my first choice of Alpine....but well see how it works out

it is spiffy looking, what was your first choice, just out of curiosity?

I think there's a wire that u have to wire up to the parking break. Soooooo, take that wire and just ground it anywhere. Then the DVD will play when driving
