    Does anybody know how to hook up already installed aftermarket headrest DVD players to the Nav-tool and to the oem nav screen? Tried feeding the rca jack output video to the nav-tool video one, then the toogle switch and nothing??

    Does the screen turn black when the toggle switch is on? Where are you taking the video signal from? I would guess the output from the DVD player, but you are powering 2 tv's and a front nav screen with a video feed.... you have to use a video amplifier, are you using one?

    When I flip the toggle the screen does not turn black. I hooked the green wire up and the blue wire up-I don't have a cam yet but when I put the car in reverse the nav turns black so I think the cam hookup will work fine. I found the output at the DVD player so did the video hookup between the dvd and the nav-tool and flip the toggle back and forth and nothing. Tried a portable dvd and went from a/v out to the nav-tool and nothing? No amplifier. How long before I can PM? I have posted several times but only been a member for a short time? Thanks a bunch Lux.

    Well Lux--I decided to run the rca from the headrest dvd to video #2 (camera) and when I put the car in reverse bingo the movie started playing so I thought maybe the green wire wasn't hooked up right. I unplugged the rca jack from vid #2 and placed it in vid #1 on the nav-tool and the movie was playing great, switch the toggle and back to normal

    Yeah, for video 1 to work you have to have the green wire and BOTH white wires grounded. If you connected the green wire to the parking brake switch like they say to, you will have to have the parking brake on for it to work.

    Thanks for the great info, that little trick cost me a couple of day's. Grounded the green wire and everything works great now.

    Re: How To: NavTv - Nav Tool - Video interface for the stock Delphi Navigation Screen

    Has anyone hooked this up to the factory rear DVD player so that both screens play from the same DVD movie from the rear overhead player?

    Smile Re: How To: NavTv - Nav Tool - Video interface for the stock Delphi Navigation Screen

    Works GREAT!!!!...with one minor exception. Need my headlights on to make the screen stop the horizontal "scroll". (kinda funny)
    Here is where I need some help. Where do I draw power for the NAV TV? I pulled it from one of the wires in larger harness going into the back of the HU. Obviously this interfaces with the headlight switch. Since it was dark when I was working on it, when I turned on the key to test my connections, power was sent to the wire because the lights are on "auto". During the day they're off. Get it?
    I figure I need switchable power (with iginition). Can you help this novice please???

    BTW: While I had the dash off I did the following (thanks to this forum): "snipped" the dark green/white wire for NAV while rollin', installed a PAC L5 iphone interface (works like a charm) and installed the NAV TV ribbon wire and "box". Now I need to run the video from the RSE. Not excited about trying to pull off interior parts like the "B" pilar, etc, but I guess that's what I've got to do.
    Bottom line: Where is 12v ignition power near my HU and tips on running wire from the RSE to the HU.
    Thanks VERY much to all for the excellent advice and expertice!

    The NavTV MUST run off the accessory switch. When the key turns to the first click, thats your accessory. (followed by ignition and finally the starter) I tapped into the remote start that was under my dash. The wires come right off the ignition switch. Just get a test light and figure it out, its pretty simple!

    The below print shows ACC and ACC/RUN power distribution with wire colors.
    See if this is what you need
