The Boss Audio BV7980 is an in-dash AM/FM/DVD/MP3/CD car receiver with WMA/MP4/MP3/DVD/SVCD/VCD/CDR/CDRW and SDVD compatibility. An upgrade from the BV7950 and BV7960T, the BV7980 uses a larger wide-screen TFT monitor (4.3” vs 3.5”) capable of 1152x234 resolution. The Audio BV7980 also includes a USB port, unlike its counterpart, the BV7970. Although priced at $219.95, approximately $50 over its predecessors, it is considered a worthwhile investment due to its ability to provide an optimal viewing experience that doesn’t rely on squinting eyes and perfect lighting for a good experience. Furthermore, the Boss Audio BV7980 also features a motorized slide-down full detachable panel, a PLL synthesized AM/FM tuner, and NTSC/PAL compatibility.
