Aftermarket DVD Player

I just bought a 06 Murano SL with Nav and i'm interested in getting a DVD system installed for the back headrests and also for the passenger sun-visor. Does anyone have any recommendations on which system is good?

Would I be better off to skip on getting the headrests monitors and get a flip-down screen?

Thanks.

I don't but would like to see some responses on this. I don't have kids but lots of folks do and like having that for long trips. To my amazement there weren't many threads on a search for aftermarket rear DVD player so this needs to be a sticky for a while. Found this one though:

Pre-wired DVD in new Murano 2005

Heres some opinions off the cuff FWIW. I don't think roof mount is the way to go for the MO unless you dont use the rear view mirror. I like your idea of seatback mounts but the passenger side could be troublesome with the passive passenger side airbag system in the 06's or the active headrest mechanisms on both driver and passenger sides since 03. I don't think the visor could stand the weight of a screen without modifying the clip. The OEM system is integrated into the back of the center console. Note for 06s, if you have the OEM rear DVD you get the old center console design, if not you get the all new for 06 center console design. Not sure about prewiring for the 06's given that. Also it appears the way to integrate audio into the factory stereo is using a PAC device.

Headrest monitors look better but flipdown screen is more functional because you can get larger screen sizes with player built-in. One big advantage of the flipdown (roof mounted) is that it usually stays out of sunlight so it can be used during the day without washout.

Having said that, here are a couple of links:

I personally don't understand the need to spend a whole bunch of extra money just to get it integrated into the vehicle. Isn't it a lot more useful (as well as cheaper) to simply get personal portable ones? they have little things to hold them to the backs of the front seats and everything, so that small children can even use them.

For the same reason we have integrated Stereo systems and don't take a portable radio or CD player with us inside the car!

I bet some people who have DVD players in their cars don't even have kids or hardly use their back seats....but like that 300ZX commercial used to say: "...but you know you could...."

I personaly chose the headrest monitors in my MO because it does not block or intefere with my rear view sight at all,unlike when u flip down the screen it completely block ur rear view. I have a set for sale if u are intersted and u can check my gallery to see how it looks in my truck. thanks

My friend with a minvan who has the flip down says... the benefit is he can put a DVD into the system, start it up, adjust the volumn up for watching and down for talking... all from the drivers seat. With the portable ones on the back of the seat... it would be hard to control it from the drivers or passengers seat.

If you have to entertain anyone less that 5 years old you don't want them handling a portable DVD player. Not if you want it to last, anyway.

On a side note, I was looking for a small portable DVR and ran across the archos AV500/700. One of the reviews on cnet.com said they load movies into theirs and give it to their kids for watching movies when they go on trips. These have a hard drive and can record video as well as play it, but the portable DVP/DVR market is an interesting option to think about.

I would like to get lcd sunvisor for passenger side,I already have a roof mounted lcd with a stand alone dvd player,how can I hook the sunvisor?does the dvd player need to have 2 video outputs for that or can I use an splitter wire to divert the video to 2 monitors?
I'm not sure if dvd player has 2 video outputs or not because is inside the console,also how to run the wires to the dvd player all the way from the visor?

My nephew has 2 toddlers.

I referred him to the dual screen DVD player someone posted here.

It was sold at Walmart and was pretty cheap.

He (actually the kids) LOVE it. The whole thing mounts onto the two headrests.

Do a search, it's around here somewhere....

Two more cents worth

I would like to avoid anything that possibly presents something to hit your face into in a crash, So just for me rules out roof and headrests.

Wiring for those is also some what more that I have time for.

This leaves for me the rear face of the center console. Which should be easy for wires, no hazard and a some what natural head position and reachable from the front seat for assisting folks in rear if needed.

I would like one where the disk slot is on the side or top and parallel behind the screen. This eliminates fold down players.

The personal portables are handy for other uses but as they say

"It don't mean a thing if it don't have that Bling"

All IMO only.
