An XRV10 Radio Question

A Jensen (ASA) XRV10 radio question. In my'19 Forza 34T, I have the Jensen XRV10 Radio/Camera/Blue Tooth unit. I checked the Owner's Manual and on-line and can find no information regarding connecting anything to the radio to make it a GPS monitor, not even my smart phone. So I contacted ASA. Yep. Their response was that this radio was not designed to be a GPS. Okay, no back-up camera (going forward), no CD or DVD player, no GPS capability. I'm trying to see the benefits in this radio unit compared to past models. Any ideas?

I have the same head unit, and the only way to make it a GPS is to use the MHL/HDMI connection and hook to a smart phone. I agree it is a little underpowered for these units.

You can actually monitor back-up camera going forward with the Jensen. Unfortunately, my MH is not here. But it can be done without having to modify anything, just a normal operation.

To add the camera view while driving, I just select source and then camera. The audio that I have selected at the time stays on but the screen will show the camera so you can check on your trailer or toad as you drive. I agree with your overall assertion that this unit is less capable than it should be at the price point of our rigs..

You can have the XVR10 display simply mirror the smart phone display. Most installs of the XVR10 do not have the required HMDI to smart phone cable installed. To do this you will need to get access to the rear of the XVR10 (this is typically done by removing the RV manufacturer-specific bezel). Purchase the appropriate phone to HDMI cable and plug into the XVR10 HDMI port. From the function screen you select the HDMI feature and perform any necessary steps to mirror the phone screen - I have not done this yet but plan to in the near future. This should all be pretty straight forward. ONE MAJOR CAVEAT... This mode only works with the Parking Brake applied. Yes, the XVR10 has a "feature" that will prevent use of the HDMI input when the Parking Brake is released - awesome, right? There is a Parking Brake connection in the XVR10 wiring and I will determine how to override this "feature" when I pull the bezel off. Most likely it will be to simply disconnect the Parking Brake connection or to wire it to a +12v source (key in the "on" position) or ground.

I recently added the HDMI converter to my XRV-10 and it doesn't seem to be very reliable. I've tried several different apps for my Samsung, but I can't get reliable connections. Seems like an app issue, but like I said I've tried several. Be interested to see if anyone has had success using this feature.

I am hoping to do this tomorrow. I have the cable. Can you tell me how you got around the brake issue please.

Kind of sounds like they don't want folks watching videos while driving down the road. Might keep that in mind when you turn off those warning/ safety functions?

UPDATE: Okay. I got it working. The PINK wire on the back of the XRV10 needs to be wired to ground (the BLACK wire is ground) to make the XRV10 believe the parking brake is pressed even when it isn't. On my rig the PINK wire was not attached to anything so even when the parking brake was pressed the HDMI port would only display the warning message. If your PINK wire is connected you would need to cut it before grounding it. I have an iPhone 7 and it mirrored the screen perfectly. The only thing I don't like is that the touch screen on the XRV10 is not functional to an iPhone (is functional to an Android device) and this seriously impacts its utility as you must use the iPhone screen to perform any task. DISCLAIMER: There have been posts regarding how to circumvent the Warning message the XRV10 displays when using the HDMI port and the parking brake is not pressed. I am only indicating how to make this modification, not advocating that anyone should.

Not planning to watch videos. Just want to mirror navigation system from phone as occurs in most cars.

Does anyone know how the Radio comes out of the dash I want to add the XM Radio to mine.? I have rear vote and turn views from mine, just select camera from source menu.

I have a 2018 Vista LX 30T and it was pretty easy. Remove the two screws - one on each side of the bezel near the bottom. This should allow the bezel to be pulled out an inch or so at the bottom, then pull down an inch or so (releasing the retaining clips at the top) and then push to the right until the left side can be pulled out. On mine the bezel would not come loose after removing the two side screws and I discovered that the left mounting screw for the left vent also had to be removed. CAUTION: Both the left screw on the left vent and the right screw on the right vent can be screwed into the metal dash frame that the bezel is mounted to and thus can prevent the bezel from being removed. NOTE: on my unit the SiriusXM Tuner was factory installed with the XRV10.

Just completed this myself. In addition to grounding the pink lead from the radio (arrow), I also needed to disconnect its connector (circled).
