Not Your Ordinary Flip Down Monitor - The Concept A102M

The Chameleon Series overhead flip down LCD monitors are known for their solid build construction, high quality LCD flat panels, and built-in DVD players. The Concept A102M steps it up a notch by motorizing the flip down monitor and providing an open, stop, and close function. By adding motorization, the flip down panel has a reduced risk of hinge failure and screen damage from user input. For compatibility with most vehicle interiors, the A102M comes with three interchangeable shroud covers in various colors. Audio transmission is accomplished via a dual channel IR transmitter for wireless headphones or an FM transmitter that works with your stock stereo. Enjoy the quality and vibrance of a Chameleon.

Overhead Monitor Specifications

Screen Type
The type of technology used to produce the screen images. LCD, DLP, Plasma, LCoS, and CRT are the most common. 2 newer technologies include LED and OLED which use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as a backlight, as opposed to conventional LCD TVs, which use cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for a backlight.
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.
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
HDMI Input
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. HDMI output means that the player has the capability to output this type of data. An HDMI input will allow you to connect game consoles, Bluray players, smart phones and other high definition devices (if compatible)
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.

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.

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.

2 Sets of Rear RCA A/V Inputs
Built-in IR Transmitter
An IR transmitter allows the unit to transmit audio signal to IR wireless headphones.
Built-in DVD Player
Indicates whether or not the unit features a built-in DVD player.
Headphone Input
Indicates the availability of wired headphone jacks featured on the unit.
OSD (On Screen Display)
Indicates that the unit has menus and features that display on the screen. Typically, on-screen menus allow users to adjust audio and video settings easier.
USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Memory Card Reader
Whether or not the receiver has a built-in input for removable memory cards such as SD (Secure Digital) cards or MMC (Multimedia) cards.
SD Card
Swivel Mount
Swivel mount allows the screen to be rotated or turned to a much more comfortable viewing position.
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Additional Trim Covers
These are the colors of additional trim rings that are sometimes included with the purchase of a overhead monitor, headrest monitor, or other screen.

If no additional trim rings are included, this will show "none".

Best value I ever made

October 10, 2013

I love the way this unit stands out. The picture seems to me it's better than other screens that I had purchased before. I also like the feature when you're watching the DVD and step out and turn off the car ignition the DVD screen automatic fold in and turn off by itself. I give this an A+

Still testing

March 9, 2014

Though I've had this unit for 30 plus days it has only recently been installed. The kids have used the unit about four time, each time it has worked well. I really enjoy the automatic screen one push of the button and it opens, no one needs to pull or tug on the screen which can cause the unit to a eventually become loose or fall.

Great idea!

October 7, 2013

The Concept A102M is a great addition to my stereo system. The monitor is the perfect size, not too big and not too small. I would recommend this product to anyone. Excellent price for a 10" monitor with DVD player.

This overhead monitor provides everything necessary to perform a clean and secure installation. The kit includes 3 different colored bezels that can be trimmed to follow the contours of the ceiling in the vehicle, plus it can be upholstered for more factory appearance. The motorized screen and built-in speaker are also nice features.

Seemed like a good item based on price and advice from customer service.
marcus c on Mar 20, 2015
Features and pricing...only to find out what a POS it was after the DVD quit a month after purchase. No compatible replacement available, manufacturer's support email address was a dead link and their phone number went to someone's voicemail who NEVER responded back to multiple messages left over a month's time!
