VIR-> Video Interface for RTI popup screens
RTI -> Volvo's in dash Route and Traffic Information system
The VIR-1 is designed for use with Volvo original stand-alone 16:9 - widescreen (!) RTI popup screens.
Those screens are widely available at Volvo junk-yards, ebay etc.
(or you might have one in your car and not wanting to use the original navigation system anymore!)
The following cars (so where the original 16:9 screen will fit-in) are supported with their original screens:
The VIR-1 offers a direct (!) connection to the screen. It only requires power (from the radio connector, nearby).
It allows you to connect a normal video source (like a navigation system, dvd player etc) and for example a reversing camera.
Source 1 of the VIR-1 is automatically activated if the car's ignition is set to position II (unless you make a switch in between the power line, then you're able to control yourself when up and down should occur), source 2 can be activated by a 12V+ source (for example the reversing lights of your Volvo).
To offer a broad variaty of device connection support, you can choose which type of video you want to display while ordering.
(NTSC or PAL).
Connection type offered for video is RCA male, composite video.
How does the VIR-1 work?
The VIR-1 emulates a Volvo DVD Navigation player with all it signals to enable the screen to go up and down and activates the 2 sources.
Normally it only supports PAL (even in NTSC oriented countries!) but the VIR-1 able to make the screen go NTSC as well.
So it does not require (and allow) connection of the original Navi computer anymore, although you can leave that in your car installed and running as well without any problem.
In the set:
- VIR-1 (Electronic unit)
- Harness (Connects power to the unit. connects to RTI screen, connects video sources)
- Power harness for screen (16:9 screen)
