GM has recently issued a bulletin telling us not to add factory options to vehicles that don't have them. You can really get into some crazy stuff.

I can tell you the factory system that vehicle uses can be obtained from a company called "model electronics". I don't know how to contact them, and whether or not they would do a retail sale. We only do warranty exchanges usually so I have never had to deal with it.
I can't speak to the harness thing either.
There might be some aftermarket alternatives that are console mounted.
Perhaps someone here can indicate a possible location to browse for such a system?

Are you asking if you can get a rear seat DVD factory with the Base radio as a factory option?
(non-nav)

I am almost sure you CAN, I'd have to see one or do some research to know for sure.
People don't usually buy them that way, I can look at some schematics later and see how they show the options in the wiring diagrams.

Yes, rear DVD could be stand alone option without getting the NAV.

Yes, rear DVD could be stand alone option without getting the NAV.

Ditto on above. I have exactly that - rear seat DVD, BOSE premium sound and 6 disc changer. No Navigation.
BTW does anyone know the model number for rear seat DVD player?

Looks like that is your answer, if folks have the base radio with the rear seat DVD... looks like they make it that way. The harness SHOULD be the same but....
