#### Abstract

Each digit in a finite alphabet labels an element of a set $\mathcal{M}$ of $2 \times 2$ column-allowable matrices with nonnegative entries; the right inhomogeneous product of these matrices is made up to rank $n$, according to a given one-sided sequence of digits; then, the $n$-step matrix is multiplied by a fixed vector with positive entries. Our main result provides a characterization of those $\mathcal{M}$ for which the direction of the $n$-step vector is convergent toward a limit continuous w.r.t. to the digits sequence. The applications are concerned with Bernoulli convolutions and the Gibbs properties of linearly representable measures.
