I'd say the unit sticks out about an inch, as the screen needs space to extend out the top of the unit. The volume knob is on the removable security panel, so that can taken off when the unit is turned off.

Its a legal requirement :-
Please note that for audio/visual applications, the screen must not be visible to the driver while the car is in motion. "Our professional in-store and mobile fitting services will take all reasonable steps to ensure that, at the time of fitting, installations comply with current legislation."

A wiring harness adaptor will be required (additional cost). For cars fitted with a non-standard sized car audio unit a new fascia adaptor will also be required (additional cost). To find out if your vehicle requires adaptors please contact your local Halfords store.

The telephone number and address for our stores can be found at http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/HalfordsStoreLocatorView?langId=-1&storeId=10001&catalogId=10151

Alternatively, you can dial 0845 762 6625 and you will be connected to your nearest Halfords store.

Store fitting applies to units fitted at Halfords stores. Normal mobile fitting charges will apply for mobile fitting requests or complex installs, which after inspection, require a mobile fitting contractor - details will be provided by your local Halfords store. Fitting service applies to products purchased in Halfords only. Pre-booking may be required. Ask in store for more details of fitting service. Extra charges may apply to vehicles with non-standard wiring.

*Subject to vehicle inspection, vehicle restrictions may apply.

Question
How do you set the rear view camera mode from "true" to "mirror" on the Ripspeed DV740?
I have a Ripspeed DV740 that was fitted to my motorhome by Halfords. So far, I am very happy with this unit. I chose this unit because I have a rear view camera and wanted to be able to view the signal using the DV740 monitor. The camera view works fine, but I have realized that I am seeing a true image, and not a mirror image. As a result, it can be quite dangerous as the view towards the rear is transposed. This is my third rear view camera setup, and both previous ones have offered a mode where the image can be selected for true or mirror mode. But I have idea how to do this on the DV740. Please can you help.

The True or Mirror image view is usually a function of the reversing camera & not the device its connected to.

Question
How can I set tv type to 16:9?
How can I set tv type to 16:9? It is set to 4:3 by factory default in error and theres no tv type setting in setup to correct this? The video image is displayed incorrect and sqashed on widescreen dvds. All other ripspeed models have this setting, therefore do not have the this problem. The wide button does not correct this either. Also, there are no firmware updates on the halfords site. Please help!!!

The iPod can only be connected via the Aux-in connection.
This will provide you with music playback but with limited functionality.
