Has anyone had a rear seat non factory dvd player installed? If so do you have any pictures to share and reasons why you went with what you did?
I didn't get factory dvd simply because the cost was so high. I'm now trying to decide what to put in. I've always had an overhead system (factory or otherwise) but I'm seriously considering just getting a Audiovox D1020 (http://www.audiovox.com/webapp/wcs/s...3112&langId=-1) as it is the only mobile player I've seen that can be used with the IR headphones. My main concern is the mounting system is a bag that hangs between the two front drivers seats (http://www.shoptronics.com/aupo10lcdtvw.html). The straps look to go fully around each seat and it seems to me that would interfere with the side airbag deployment if an accident occurred.
I was just reading the shoptronics link and while the picture shows the bag mounted around the seats the text says it should be mounted to the headrest and seat rails making me think the side airbags might not be an issue.
I can't seem to find the D1020 for sale at any of the big local retailers. It would be nice if I could so I could check it out up close.
i had 2 headrest monitors installed in the front headrests and a 8.5" flip down installed for the third row. they can al work independently or as a group with one being the master. they direct wired it though the rear aux inputs so it works right through the factory nav system. they also came with ir headphones and have a wired and wireless built in game controllers. the whole system is pretty kick but and i still only paid $2500 which is not much more than the factory single dvd. i could take a pic but dont know how to post it.
I am looking at a system also, I already have a 2 screen portable system which worked fine on last trip. I plugged it in to the aux jack and it sounded great. I am considering another portable 2 screen system or a built in unit . In our old excursion we used the factory system and the portable system at the same time , allowing for 2 movies to be played at the same time.
