Even if you can't replace your headrests and don't have room for an overhead monitor, you can still put in backseat video with Accele's LCDMBZ85BK monitor. This multimedia player mounts with a clever system that straddles your vehicle's center console to provide your backseat passengers with plenty of entertainment. The mount will adjust to fit almost any vehicle with a front seat center console.
The 8.5" LCD widescreen displays a crisp, colorful picture to everyone in the back. A built-in DVD player handles your disc-based videos, while USB, SD card, and A/V inputs let you play almost everything else. The included IR remote controller offers easy control, even from the front seat. And built-in IR transmitters lets people in the back listen with wireless headphones (not included) without bothering those up front.
Roeder this video system and it promptly arrived in two days. I was told it did not have headphones, but it came with a set of IR headphones! System could not be installed with hardware provided so I used my own. Directions were not very descriptive. Works very well. Only issue we have is that some cheaper DVDs do not play in the system. I plugged it right into the AV jack on our Ford Edge and plays over the factory stereo system. Not a cheap looking unit! Doesn't move or skip over bumps.
Pros: High quality materials and looks and functions well! Picture is high quality! Comes with headphones.
Cons: Installation instructions left a lot to the imagination. Won't play cheaper DVDs.
Bought this for my wife's 2010 GMC Terrain as we didn't opt for the factory rear seat entertainment and something was needed now that our kids are 4 and 2. I mounted it to the rear of the center console and basic (mounting) installation took a few hours as I am an engineer and wanted to do it right. As the other reviewer stated the product finish is nice and the command interface is straightforward. It has DVD resume, which is a lifesaver, so all you to do after keying on is hit the power button and the DVD picks up automatically where it left off. The fact that you can swivel it 350 degrees is nice as it allows you to spin it around from the driver's seat and get everything set before spinning it back around for the rear seat viewers. The product actually comes with three sets of good quality wireless headphones and a video game controller with 50 extra games (in addition to the DVD full of games which can be used with the remote control which has gaming buttons) which can be plugged into the a/v input. This wasn't stated in the original description. I am using the cigarette lighter for power now but it will be hardwired soon. The picture is perfect and the screen retention force is good which doesn't allow the screen to flop around at all. Mounting directions left something to be desired but the product quality more than made up for it. I will probably buy another one for my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT soon.
Pros: Product finish and overall quality. Good screen resolution. Included wireless headphones and extra video games were an added bonus. Internal speakers are good as are the wireless headphones and the headphones are small enough for tiny heads.
Cons: RF frequency options are few and I couldn't find a channel that really worked well. Mounting hardware is small in diameter but there are eight mounting screws so they make up for it in quantity.
Installed in 2014 jeep grand cherokee, has a vinyl appearance and does not look cheap. You can hard wire using wire from left side bracket or use 12 volt plug. Great picture & the kids love the games. Makes my jeep look more expensive & looks like it came from the factory. Love everything about it. Had to remove rear console , took about 4 hours to install & hard wire.
Pros: Has high end look & lots of function. You will not be disappointed!
Cons: Takes long time to install, but may take less time on other vehicles without ac ducts in the rear seat area.
