Default DVD Headrests

Currently run a single 10" screen mounted to console between seats to keep Tin Lids entertained. However, I do find that it gets in the way and does restrict access to the console.

Am considering installing twin headrest DVD units instead. As we have an Exceed with leather seats was wondering about access to the inside of the seat structure to run all the wires. Has anyone had experience with this to give any tips (ie: easy to do without damaging seats, or don't bother, try something different?)

Regards,

Calspec

We have xls challenger with leather seats and have just finished installing 2 9inch headrest dvd players job took about 1 hour. The seat backs had zippers in both sides just a matter of un zipping and pulling the cable through ran it down and out with the airbag wiring and in to the centre console to take power off the cigarette lighter socket then just zip the covers back up. The kids love them and they look original
good luck

not done it with leather-

but with cloth seats just undid ONE of the bottom seat clips/ steel circles and was able to access the seat back quite comfortably with my fat Australian arms/ hands

would check how the leather seat back is attached- stretched to the seat bottom before ordering.

yep
leather seats have 2 zippers holding the back panel on. fold them out at the bottom and unzip them and unclip it at the bottom. its a fairly easy job. i wired mine up to constant power. with our old ones they plugged into the cigarette plug and would restart every time i restarted the car so the kids would watch the first half of the movie a couple of times before seeing the end
btw i got my 2 10 inch off ebay in hongkong for $270 delivered inc infra red headsets, and the black leather is a reasonable match.

Thanks for the replies. Will have a closer look at my seats to find any zips etc (have to remove lambswool covers first ).

Was looking at the eBay options. Quite a range in price. Most is out of China and probably all cost the same, different traders have different "profit margin" requirements. They seem to all have Sony Lenses in them - they all quite like to promote this fact. Gotta love the "Oz Seller" promotions as well, only to have the ad filled with Chinese mis-English (or is that Chinglish)

JasonW, have you had any quality issues with yours and how long since you installed them. I suspect that the headrest will be larger than the originals - might not be able to get the lambswool cover back on. I have covers on the seats so perfect match in leather not critical.

One last question, most say that they have MP3 capability. Do they allow playing of MP3 or WMA audio files straight off the flash card/drive?

I insalled some headrest DVD plaers in my Headrest in my NP Exceed a couple of weeks ago..
Very easy Job, as mentioned two zippers on the back of the seat. Where are you thinking of getting you power from?

If you have any questions please feel free to PM.. Can also e-mail pic's if that helps.

Happy Viewing

Default What about an Android tablet?

Calspec, have you considered one of the newish Android tablets? I am in a similiar position to you with 2 Tin lids and need some sort of entertainment in the back. I want a media player as I do not need the DVD side of things. I feel that playback of a DVD on dirt roads will skip.

A tablet will playback all formats of media, allow games and provide hours of fun etc. You would need one with 2 USB ports. Store a series of movies on a USB flash drive for playback and the rest on a portable HDD. When required just copy some different ones to the USB flash drive and away you go.

Apart from the purchase, the only things I need to work out are how to power the device and where to mount it/them in the back.

Sorry to hijack your thread, but just thought they are worth a look.

Cheers, Mark

Tablets are not something I had thought of. Worth considering for sure.

Pair of DVD headrests = $400 ish (range from about $200pr to about $1000pr)
Pair tablets = ?? (Guessing more than $200ea) Haven't looked yet.

But installation cost not only consideration. Portability, versatility, vibration issues. But also damage by mis-use, being dropped, sat on etc. Power and headphone cables - tangled mess in back seat, accidental damage.

Might get one for wife. May also have GPS/Mapping use as well.

Cheers,

Calspec
