: 05 Escalade rear dvd hooked up to front NAV

07-01-05, 06:28 AM
Has anyone tried to hook up the factory DVD player to the front nav unit? I am going to try and do this and I wanted to know if anyone has successfully done it. I think it will work with the PAC VCI-GM2 unit. I just need to figure out what wire transfers the video signal from the DVD player to the rear screen and tap into it. Any suggestions?

If you do that then the next thing you'll want to do is be able to control the rear dvd from the front.
Why not install a separate dvd player in the front and hook it to both the nav unit and the rear dvd?

I could do that but I would also have to get aux input module that would disable the factory dvd sound. Plus the factory screen doesn't have rca in. You can control the factory dvd from the front. All you have to do it point the remote backwards toward the rear window.

If you use the GM unit connected to your touchscreen unit, will the audio come through the unit also?

Audio already comes through RSE when the DVD player is on.
