About the Metra GMRSAV Factory Integration Adapter
If you plan to install a new radio in your 2007-up GM vehicle and you want to retain the factory Rear Seat Entertainment system (RSE), Metra's GMRSAV adapter can help. This cable sends audio and video from your aftermarket radio to the overhead screen in your entertainment system. If you connect a secondary A/V source to the inputs on the rear seat control panel, it will route that signal to your new radio too. Warranty: 1 year.

This adapter works very well. The only issue that I had, was that the wires weren't labeled the same as the plugs on the stereo. So there was some confusion as to what went where, but the technical support department was very knowledgeable and helped me get it connected properly.
