On the 12-Volt side of the equation, Audiovox showed-off a pimped Hummer H2 with more monitors than a delinquent elementary school. The new Audiovox VOD285P/S took a page from the custom installation world where two roof-mounted monitors were always a crowd pleaser but required days of custom fabrication. Instead of fabricating, Audiovox has done the hard work for the installer with a complete overhead system with dual 8.5” swivel screens featuring dual DVD Players, optional TV Tuner, a wired Game Controller with 30 pre-loaded video games, an infrared transmitter for wireless headphones, and a Wireless FM Modulator. The systems comes in two colors: Shale and Pewter, and carries an MSRP $1,599 installed.
Audiovox’s new direct-replacement headrest monitors have OEM-match fabric and leather for over 150 different vehicle applications. In fact, Tom Malone pointed out that texture-matched monitors is the company’s fastest growing segment and all Audiovox products meet crash-test standards.
For safety-minded individuals, Audiovox has a unique system that features a back-up camera in a license plate bracket. This new license plate system is the most recent addition to the company’s line of collision avoidance systems that include sound and visual sensors and the self-installed trailer hitch camera. The License Plate camera features a built-in, high quality CCD camera, designed to show the driver on an optional screen what he can’t see in his rear-view mirror. Additional features include LEDs for enhancing low-light situations and a built-in microphone, which can pick-up outside sounds behind the vehicle. The durable metal frame mounts over the existing license plate for a quick install. MSRP: $259.95. The coolest product to hook this camera up to is the LCMR6CT (MSRP: $599.95) that is actually a replacement rearview mirror with an integrated monitor. The monitor disappears when the vehicle is shifted into drive.
