Default Found my backup camera monitor ...

Was getting the coach ready for a roadtrip, grease, wash etc. Cranked it and while it was warming up and building air pressure I played with the radio. A regular looking Panasonic radio face. Thinking it would be nice to maybe get my Sirius radio hooked up to it, I pressed the "out" button to remove the face plate (so I thought). The whole thing whizzed out of there like a James Bond secret ******, popped up and now I got a 6.5 " LCD display, changing from my built in GPS to radio to my back up monitor.
We had this coach almost a year now, could never figure out where the monitor display was or supposed to be. LOL a christmas present from the Bird

I've been going thru afternarket radio replacement lately on a bunch of radios......Crutchfield has been the most helpful with installation kits but the radios themselves are crazy. I don't need 400 different sound settings...so many options that the station pushbuttons are almost impossible to find. Setting the clock....haha.....let me find the manual???? You better have a magnifying glass handy!

Mr Kip is correct , there are way too many adjustments on new radios .

It's kind of like going to the eye doctor and looking through those lenses with him asking " better or worse ".
At some point you just can't tell any difference

I have a nice Bluetooth radio in my bus. Several have tried, but no one has ever gotten it to make a sound. ... but it looks good.

I took the radio out of my bus.
I use the TV with the tracking sat dish for radio or talk shows.
One sure way to stay awake is to put one of those talk shows on the TV,it will make you mad as heck for the rest of the day!


The radio buttons are way too small,and the writing? yeah,right,like i can read that.
And then they use some kind of hieroglyphics,which means nothing to me.
AS far as i'm concerned the radio needs to be by Carols seat.

I'll agree with you there on moving the radio. Right now it is above the drivers seat and overtime I have to switch cd's I have to balance over his head while he's driving. We plan to switch the new CB with the radio, cause we use the radio all the time and the CB, not so much. This way the passenger can control the radio without interfering with the driver.

My M380s “Fancy” Audio Head was swapped out (Not by me) for a Even Fancier Kenwood with All the Stuff!
It talks to me even when I don’t ask it to!
Warns me of Traffic issues, but it only does it on very Sparse Roads with NO Traffic!

Traffic Ahead!...
