Voxx Ships Newest Advent Overhead Monitor With Expanded Smart Connectivity Options

Voxx has begun shipping the newest addition to its Advent line of overhead monitors, the ADVEXL12A.

The ADVEXL12A system has a 12.1-inch digital LED backlit monitor with a 1,280 by 800 resolution. Features include hidden connectivity for optional wired and wireless accessories for content streaming; built-in 100-channel FM transmitter with the ability to hardwire (hidden FM out for connection of optional FM relay box FMDIRB); dual-channel IR headphones; user-accessible USB reader (with charging support); and user-accessible HD inputs for smartphones, tablets and smart-TV sticks.

It also has selectable M1/M2 operation, A/V inputs and outputs, and DVD with auto-on and last position memory.

The ADVEXL12A, which carries a $799 suggested retail, comes with three interchangeable trim rings and universal snap-on bezels. Mounting brackets and hardware are also included.

Voxx is also offering additional accessories for expanded connectivity. The HDH12 is a 12-foot HDMI/MHL/USB extension harness that provides a wired content streaming option. The extension harness with a finished connector end can replace an existing 12-volt socket in a vehicle or can be cut in to add HDMI/MHL connectivity and charging support, said Voxx.

The WM1 SmartStream Module lets users stream content wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet to compatible Voxx mobile video systems. This module was designed to receive over-the-air updates through the user’s Apple or Android smartphone or tablet as new operating systems are released.

The MVGP1 Game Pack Module, meanwhile, lets users add gaming to the system with 54 32-bit games. This module comes with two game controllers and a plug-and-play module that plugs directly into the control box.
