In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Double DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

None
Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
Yes
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Yes
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

45 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
15 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
2 Pairs (Front and Rear)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
No
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
Bass and Treble Controls with 3 EQ Presets
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

TFT-LCD Monitor
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Blue
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
60 dB
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

No

Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

XO Vision XOD1840BTNAVI

February 9, 2009

Very bright screen, NAVIGATION system is very cool, big power watt output so I can really "jam it". Only thing really sucks is it opens all folders in one directory. Lets say you make a organized CD with folders, when you open it, it will all be in one folder. And you can't actually touch the name of the song, you have to use arrows on touch screen to skip to another song.

Not a bad unit for the technologically savy person. Good price.

October 28, 2008

I purchased the XOVision XOD1840BTNAVI about 2 weeks ago and have been working with it since then. I'm going to say one thing first, and this is key for your own installations - when I first purchased and installed the unit, I purchased an aftermarket wiring harness specifically for my car, and soldered that to the wiring harness that came with the XOD head unit (wire for wire, it worked well). The XOD unit frequently had problems, crashes, and other strange activity. It turns out that the same factory harness in the dash also provides power to the climate control and cigarette lighter. After much frustration, I finally ran a power wire directly off the + battery under the hood (with an additional fuse I installed within 1 foot of the battery post) to the yellow fused wire in the XOD included harness, and this solved *all* strange activity. It's my opinion that this unit must have clean, continuous 12V to 14V power to operate properly. Most radio head units will put up with some minor power fluctuations, the XOD unit will not tolerate it. Pros: - 7" Screen 16:9 (416x234 pixels), provides a good quality picture, very bright. Note that you can dim the screen by holding down the bezel mute button, it goes to about half brightness, works very well at night (and for the bright blue bluetooth interface at night). The touch-screen is a flat matt finish and does fine for minimal fingerprints, and does about as good as a screen can do in direct sunlight. - DVD playback is a strong feature, it works well - It is advertised to playback DVD/DVD-r/DivX/VCD/CD/CD-r/CD-RW/AVI/MPEG/MP4/MP3. I have tested DVD/DivX/MP3 and MPEG2 files, all worked fine except for the mpeg2 file. This is a bit strange as playing a VOB file directly worked fine. Not a big problem. - Divx capability works well, fit nearly 12 encoded movies on 8.5gb DVD. When creating your Divx movies, I would recommend maintaining a bitrate of 600 or above, you can really scale down the movies, it's a 7" screen from 3 to 5 feet away, and they still look very good. - The video player, DVD/Divx/Avi, etc.. does know how to resume on restart, MP3 player strangely does not. - MP3 player is functional (also see cons) - Radio feature works fine, tuner is good - Has a navigation system, with receiver/antenna. The antenna works well, even when poorly placed (at least it does here in my locale). There is a 1-button access to the navigation interface, so if you're listening to the radio, watching a movie, or music, you can immediately switch to navigation and navigate will still listening to your radio/DVD/MP3 source in the background. When the navigation unit speaks, it will auto-mute the other audio just long enough for it to speak, and then un-mute when done speaking, this works well. If you switch to radio/DVD/MP3 during navigation, the navi will continue in the background so you can switch back to it at any time (although it will not report to you when in the background). The navigation software is just okay, Navigon I believe. Most importantly, all the navigation software is on a 2GB SD Card (note that this unit will NOT read SDHC "high capacity" SD Cards, so you are limited to 4GB cards), so if you can find and purchase some other navigation software, and with some Internet searching, you should be able to figure out how to use the better software. Purchase your own SD card, leaving the SD card that shipped with the unit with the original navigation software, this leaves the unit unchanged and unharmed in the event of warranty work. The navigation system uses a Samsung ARM920T core processor at approx. 400mhz, with 64mb of on-board RAM and Windows CE 5.0 embedded. The 7" display on the XOD really helps the navigation, try searching for 7" stand-alone navigation system and the prices will shock you in comparison to this unit. On the navi SD Card are two directories, mobilenavigator and cities - in the mobilenavigator directory is an application "mobilenavigator.exe". Because the navi part of the XOD unit runs winCE5, if you create your own SD card, maintaining directory structure, you can rename any winCE5 app to "mobilenavigator.exe" and it will run on the unit (this really opens up a lot of options for this unit, I've already tried an alternate MP3 player with playlist support and it worked well). - a second SD slot for media, remember, won't read SDHC cards, only SD cards, which limits you to 4GB. - Has bluetooth functionality, for phone support/headphones/streaming data. Also see cons. The bluetooth interface screen can be accessed at any moment and mutes whatever else is going one. - The touchscreen works very well, not too hard, not too soft, just right. The end of your finger, or even a fingernail works perfectly - The unit does support home-burned 8.5GB double-layer DVD (I used roxio software and created a "data" DVD with audio AND music files on it). I would imagine it also supports the home-burned single-layer 4.7GB DVD's without a problem, although I didn't test this. - The motorized faceplate seems solid, you can hear the motor, but it does work fine. - I tested the unit at 15 degrees F, and although everything was sluggish, and the screen was dimmed and slow to respond, it was quite impressive how well it did work. As the manual states, it would be wise to wait a few minutes for the car to warm up prior to powering up the unit. - The remote is small and seems to work just fine. There are some features on both the remote and head unit that do not operate on the adjacent unit (i.e. - switching to navigation must be done from the head unit directly, the remote does not have that option). Cons: - This is the number 1 con - you may need to modify your dash faceplate. Although the unit is touted as a "double-din", the motorized faceplate extends about 3/16" vertically below the profile of the unit cube, meaning that I will have to open up the vertical dimension of my factory faceplate. The included sleeve (which I did not need as the unit main chassis fit the mounting brackets for my vehicle) is slightly too large for my double-din factory faceplate, and may not always work in your application. - No USB interface port - The equalizer functions are basic only, volume, base, trebble, front/back fade, left/right fade. - MP3 player and video file player interface screen is *very poor*. MP3 player does not support playlists (this is pretty serious in combination with a poor interface). Putting music on a DVD or SD card is identical to the unit, it uses basically the same interface screen. I created a DVD with 10 directories on it, each directory with 10 songs. When the DVD is inserted, the interface searches the DVD for all media files, and lines all 100 found songs up in a list, and just plays from start to finish, the song list is in a left hand column, and the MP3 tag for playing song is right hand column. You can browse the song list by using up/down arrow keys, but you cannot pick one in the list by touching it on the screen. MP3 ID tag in right column is heavily truncated, they should have used an upper/lower window instead of left/right column. This MP3 and video file selection screen is clunky and poorly coded, however, it does function and plays songs/videos fine - it does it's job, it is just inefficient and ugly. An alternate option would be to bring in iPod video/audio through RCA style aux. ports in back. This interface is the largest negative of the unit - and if this were cleaned up, I'd have a hard time finding a problem with the unit. - Although a minor point, it's worth mentioning that the 7" screen seems to have poor software implementation, as the video (or navigation) seems to run slightly off each edge of the screen by about 1/16 of an inch or so, as if the bezel thickness were not considered, which can make some text run slightly off the screen, and occasionally, some on-screen touch buttons a pain to reach. - The bluetooth interface screen is about as basic as it could be, not much time was spent here. It does function well, though, and does it's job, it's just not a good looking interface. I tested it with a friends phone, and it all connected fine, and worked as it should, however, others that I speak to indicate that my voice is almost not loud enough, and there is no way to adjust the input level of the built-in mic, so you will need to speak loud and clear if you choose to use this feature. I did not test the A2DP and streaming music feature of the bluetooth, which could yield a solution to the poor in-unit MP3 player interface, especially if you have an MP3 Player with streaming bluetooth functionality. NOTE: If you hate the fact that the blue-tooth interface screen is BRIGHT blue, and almost hurts at night, you can dim the screen by holding down the mute button, or better yet, you can switch the source to aux. input (black background) and the bluetooth interface will follow with black background. - Does not support High Definition radio - Does not have built in satellite radio, however, the aux. port could be used for this with seperate receiver I suppose. - As it is with any LCD screen, it is hard to read in direct sunlight. Summary: If you purchased this unit mainly to play MP3's, you will be disappointed (unless you use your own iPod to interface with it, or possibly streaming bluetooth, untested). The DVD system, the video file player (divx, etc..), the radio, and the navigation system do work well, although the interfaces could have been cleaned up a bit. I would say that a similar unit by Pioneer or JVC and the likes (with 7" display) would cost nearly 2 to 3 times as much, and may not provide the savy buyer with that much extra enjoyment. Because the United States has so few reviews of this unit, and I've never heard of the XOVision namebrand, and although I almost never do this for electronics, I purchased a 3 year extended warranty from the seller, and I would recommend anyone to do the same. The overall quality of the unit seems solid, but I've only had it for a couple weeks, so we'll see how it operates over the long run. If you are a technologically savy person, I would think you could be happy with this unit. If you are a plug-and-play style of person who would prefer not to fool around with your electronics, you might want to consider another, more expensive unit with cleaner features.

I got the xovision for two reasons, it was about 200-300 dollars cheaper than any other gps unit and I was curious what kind of product they made. Right away, I noticed how terrible the interface was. MP3 playback would not show ID3 tag information, when it did, it would Truncate the output. It has support for an SD card, but it does not resume from an SD card. So it's fairly useless as a media input. It does know how to resume from a MP3 CD/DVD which is what saved it. Also the GPS interface was not horrible. Don't even bother with the bluetooth support. If they can hear you, the annoying Bright Blue screen will blind you at night, and interrupt your gps navigation capabilities. Bluetooth streaming worked ok, and the GPS still functioned. About a month after installation, the LCD back light went out.
