I just installed it and it works great. Really easy installation and u turn it on and off with a switch. Its called a Sam's Unit. I forgot to take pics of it but you see the middle of my install.

Do you have a seperate DVD player or can you put the DVD in the touchscreen unit and does it have a extra imput for a rear view camera.

It has a separate wire for a 12v signal from your reverse and an extra input for the reverse camera. Heres the website I got it from. Let him know Tom with the 05 escalade EXT from the Cadillacforums set you. He'll know what to do. His name is Sam. Best is to call hes a really friendly guy.

Bad ass, thank you. That look clean. I was scared to buy the q-form cause i didnt know how well it would match. Nice work on the nav unit too.

Congragulations on your stuff and hope you enjoy it ;)
Well,I am also planning to buy and put similar stuff but first I will have a search for the OEM systems in 02 and newer whether they are applicable and fit to 00 STS ? Probably yes but need some confirmation :)

That's great you figured out a way to get yours working :thumbsup:

It just sucks your stock unit wouldn't play movies when the one in our V's will. There's even a button press "hack" to watch them while in motion (parking brake released). In any case congrats.
