Looks kinda like a mini-firewire port?

if it is on your car radio, it might be for GPS antenna... But I am not totally sure.

if it's the one next to the magic gate, I think it might be for connecting a screen

Thats what it is. Would make no sense for a car stereo to have firewire.

vision fail. if you look at the image the OP posted, there is a big area around the connector, so conceivably the connector on that gps could fit in there, the image you posted is from a video camera or laptop, and does not have the large empty area around it that the OP's image did.

OP: I'm gonna go out on a limb and state the obvious here...find the manual for your radio and see what it says because I GUARANTEE it will tell you what each connector is for. *SMH*

Googling that model number under the port brings up this

Thanks for that. What I figured, a video port. The cable to buy for it is here....

I am guessing the stereo has a display on it? Looks like it from the pick. So video port is probably to hook up a DVD player or something like that.

That comment really needed?

the image you posted is from a video camera or laptop,


Yes, I know. I posted the pic to display the DV in/out and what the port was.
