To control the DVD player you can either use the included remote or the controls on the DVD player itself.

For those of you that have to remove interior lighting to install the Overhead DVD player, Audiovox has included 2 LED lights on their player that you can have function as your normal interior lights would, or have them always off. There is a three position switch on the side to control them.

When you turn on the DVD player you can choose which input device you would like to use. You have the choice of DVD, USB, HDMI 1 or 2, Media (for Apple Devices), AV, Aux, Digital TV (with additional module), and Game (with add on ).

You can change the screen size to either 4:3 or 16:9.  If you don’t want your kids sneaking a movie in that you don’t want them watching, you can set the max rating for the movies you choose to allow them to see. All of this can be password protected to make sure they don’t change any of your settings.

If your kids just want to listen to music, the Audiovox DVD player will play MP3 or WMA CD’s or MP3 and WMA audio from your USB Thumb Drive.

The video quality on the DVD player is excellent and makes for a great viewing experience in your car. The screen resolution is 1024 x 600 with over 1 million pixels.
