Raxiom AV In

Hey all,

Just installed my Raxiom into my 2014 Mustang and people told me the only way to get from HDMI to Component for the Raxiom input would be to get a converter that would be powered buuuuut I ended up finding one at Radio Shack that worked perfectly. I have tested it from my old Droid MAXX and laptop and it worked great! Just thought I would share this little tidbit.

Cheers

Could someone explain in simple terms what this is? I am getting one next spring and would like to know as much about this unit as possible.

TIA

So, the Raxiom unit has the Red, Yellow, and White female cables coming out of the back of it for Video In. But since most things are HDMI these days I wanted to go HDMI->RCA...but HDMI is a digital signal and RCA is analog signal so you have to convert them. Typically, from what I can tell, it has required a box with a power source but this converter uses power from the Raxiom unit (magically?) so that it doesn't have to be hooked up to a power source.

TLDR Version:
It lets you hook your HDMI cable up to the Raxiom GPS so you can play videos on the unit's screen.

This might sound crazy, but disconnect everything on it. My screen stopped working back in June. No warning, just out of the blue stopped working. Took it out, checked connections, hooked it back up, and it was working again.

Not yet. It won't even pair anything anymore. It first started to drop the connection. Then it just stopped pairing all together.

I will say, I just took a long road trip (14+ hrs) and towards the end my unit started acting up...IDK if it was getting to hot or what was going on but there was some serious non-responsiveness...It cleared up the next day, however, and then came back again towards the end of the trip on the way back. Who knows.
