RE: Rand McNally or Magellan gps

We use two of them...the built-in one in the coach (Jensen, I believe they use the Navteq maps) and a Good Sam Rand McNally 7" unit. I use the Good Sam site to plan trips and then download them to the Rand unit. I use the two of them together...if they don't agree, we get out the tried and true maps. The Good Sam Rand McNally unit has been right more times than the Jensen... The Good Sam Rand unit is easy on the eyes, we like the display of turns and route changes and at 7" it only takes a glance to "get the picture".

RV Surround system

I have been searching high and low to find out what other options there are available and some of the information is limited or I am not looking in the right spot. I have a 2006 Forrest River Sandpiper TH 5er. It has 5.1 speakers mounted in the ceiling with a POS Concertone ZX500 which is malfunctioning to say the least. I have done some searching regarding mutlimedia for the RV and the only two options I have seen are the Jensen AWM975 and the Concertone 3.0. Although the Jesnen is wired for HDMI output it is not wired for 5.1 surround sound. The Concertone has all that is needed, but the $700 price tag is a bit much. What other options are there? I am not too sure 12 volts is a necessity since I have wired my trailer wiring for inverter power. So I guess this points me to using a home system. Has anyone installed a a home theater receiver in their RV? Pictures?

RE: Smart Phone Remote App

I cannot believe no one has asked this. I have searched the forums and found nothing. My RV did not come with the remote for the Jensen CD/DVD/MP3 AM/FM Stereo. There is an IR window, so it must be compatible. My question is, has anyone found a smartphone remote control app to run these items? no such animal exists However there is hope. WHY: Smart phones do not support Infra Red, they have no IR hardware and thus can not replace an I/R Remote. older PDA's however DO have I/R communications ability (Go back about 10 years) and there was indeed a I/R Remote app for those Finally there are Remotes in the 50-150 dollar range where you can download device specific programs and USB transfer to the remote.. They are true Universal" and many of them can duplicate ALL the functions of the OEM remote... ANY OEM Remote (Save Dish Remote #2 Remote 1 yes.. 2.. Well ... Some of them perhaps #2 is RF not I/R)) Dude; read the thread. THERE ARE SMART PHONES THAT HAVE BUILT IN IR! And you can buy IR / Bluetooth bridges for those that don't.

RE: Smart Phone Remote App

... I tried that first... it's for TV's only...you have to pick your cable/satellite provider and go from there. The writeup says "... the Galaxy S5 can be used to control all types of devices and brands available on the market.". I guess that's misleading then if it only supports TVs. I would have guessed that it would have similar capabilities to the Remote app that came with my LG G2 phone where it supports many audio & video devices (It actually lists Jensen under audio devices) and even has a "Learn" mode that let's you create custom remotes.

RE: Smart Phone Remote App

Thanks everyone... i have an app, it's basic..it turns the jensen on and off and changes the radio stations.... not sure if i can get it to work the DVD..but I'll play while on vacation. it cost 3.99 with a lifetime money back guarantee. It's for Galaxy phones called Galaxy Universal Remote. Since the Galaxy S5 includes IR it also comes with an app called Smart Remote. You could have saved the $3.99. How to use the Galaxy S5 as a remote control I tried that first... it's for TV's only...you have to pick your cable/satellite provider and go from there.

RE: Smart Phone Remote App

Tried shopping for an app? Question probably doesn't come up because most people toss their Jensen stuff. This is the first trip that we will have a TV. We typically boondock, so never had a need. I will pull the fuse for the stereo while boondocking just have the battery last a bit longer. I read the descriptions on the apps that have pricing but they don't say for sure and I don't want to lose any money on that.

Or is there a programmable remote app that if i find the right code i can input it. I'm really trying hard not to spend anymore money.

RE: Stereo Swap Out Question?

"I'd like to swap out the cheap Jensen stereo unit in my Jayco for a car audio unit such as linked below." Just to clarify my mod....I have a Jayco Eagle TT that has a Jensen stereo in the cabinet that I'd like to take out and replace with a reasonable quality car audio unit. Would require hooking up the 4 speakers in the trailer roof and hopefully get the DVD to play through the TV.

Stereo Swap Out Question?

I'd like to swap out the cheap Jensen stereo unit in my Jayco for a car audio unit such as linked below. http://www.crutchfield.ca/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=158XAV65&Show=ExtInfo How do I overcome the Parking Brake feature quoted below? Any other advice will be greatly appreciated. "Parking Brake Detection: To prevent the displaying of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire in the supplied 16-pin harness must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. Video can only be displayed when the vehicle's parking brake is engaged. While the vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view source information, song/artist information, and menus."

RE: Radio Volume Too Loud

Appears you may have a mis-matched system. Check the Jensen amp output against the existing speakers. You may have too much wattage for the speakers & they are actually overloaded.
