Panasonic CQ-VW100U In-Dash DVD Receiver

Enhanced Picture Quality
Panasonic brings vivid color reproduction in the same league as its flat-panel LCD TV screens into your car. Such high image quality is now more important than ever with the rising popularity of in-car DVD entertainment and navigation systems. That's why Panasonic developed a new high temperature-certified color filter that stays faithful to color standards even under the grueling conditions of a hot car interior, delivering richer color images when viewing DVD entertainment and navigation system maps. Enjoy crisp and clear display of small type and fine patterns thanks to high-definition display technology and a digital graphics processor, the key to improved image resolution.

Simple Touch-Screen Operation
A light touch of your finger on the 7" widescreen display panel is all it takes to control most functions. Operation is quick and easy from the very start because you can directly select the items you want from simple menu lists or icons. Gone is the hassle of moving the cursor through endless lists. Improved touch-panel transparency contributes to outstanding brightness and legibility, while the improved Graphical User Interface (GUI) uses clear color graphics and text.

Keep Your Hands on the Wheel
With the separately sold Hands-Free Kit featuring Bluetooth® technology (CY-BT200U), you can talk on your cell phone while keeping both hands on the steering wheel. And since Bluetooth® uses wireless technology, your phone can stay in a pocket, purse, backpack or briefcase. Up to five phones can be paired with the system.

Play Multiple Video and Music Formats
Most people think of their DVD player simply as a movie machine. This model not only plays prerecorded DVDs and DVD-audio discs, but also MP3, CDs, DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs. With 18 FM and 6 AM presets with Preset Scan, you can easily find your favorites. For even more options, the system is satellite radio-ready.
