I have a 2005 cadillac escalade and I want to play videos from my i-touch through my navigation. Is this possible to do, if so how?

yes with the nav tv module. it switches video input to the screen between the actual navigation and two other sources that you can plug into it. You could then get the video adapter for the i-touch. The issue you would have is the audio. You would either have to get a rf modulator or do what i did(if you have rear seat entertainment that is) and connect my rse to my nav and just hook my i-touch up to the aux input of the rse.

d-dash could you please give me links to everything I would need to buy to make this work. I jus bought the pac-audio to use my i-touch through my nav hopefully I can get rid of that now. Anyway I dont have the tv or dvd player in my car so i cant run the audio through my rse therefore I would have to get an rf modular. What would that do?

Here are the links for the nat tv and ipod video adapter. I didn't get an rf modulator for mine cuz i used the rse, so you will b eon your own for that. actually, let me just check ebay. Also, the link for the nav tv is for a non-touchscreen. there is a different one for the touchscreen.

The rf modulator plugs into the antenna input on the back of the head unit. then the regular antenna plug plugs into it. It then just takes over a radio station so you can listen to the sound you input over the radio.

BTW D-dash: What did you find to be the easiest way to route the video wire from the RSE to the HU? Also, did you find ur instructions for which wire is best for power to the Nav TV?

No, the nav tv won't charge it. it just takes the video input from the cable that i listed.

Rcaddy, sorry i was sick yesterday and completely forgot to check. I will try and remember tonight.
