Can someone tell me if you can hoop up an ipod to 07/08 escalade without any aftermarket kit. I spoke with a dealer and was told if you have rear dvd, you can plug in your ipod. I'm assuming it will not show up on the nav screen, is that correct?

or do I need to holdout until the 09's come out. The no bluetooth on 07/08 is a real bummer as well!

If you have the rear seat DVD it will plug in and work, hit the aux on the head unit, if not you need an IPod Lockpick, been using one for over a year, works great. Talk to GM GeeK, I am sure he will chime in on this thread. :)

that's good news,

does the ipod screen show up on the nav or do you still need to control everything with the ipod itself?

If you don't have RSE; try the scosche unit:

Better the company than coastaletech. (They will at least answer the phone)

what's rse? rear seat entertainment?

I'm looking at an 08 with a dvd in the back roof, not in the headrests of the front seats.

does the ipod screen show up on the nav or do you still need to control everything with the ipod itself?

RSE = Rear Seat Entertainment

Yes the ipod shows up on the screen. Did you watch the youtube video in my last post? It shows the unit working.

Also there is a new thread about another ipod kit here:

Good luck.

I guess I din't make my question clear enough, I meant does the ipod show up on the nav screen on 08 models without a aftermarket kit. I know you can plug it into the RSE but will it show up on the nav?
