About the Metra GMRSAV Factory Integration Adapter

Metra GMRSAV

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.

Q
Do i need this to install headrest dvd players to my factory head unit? I dont know if the rca cables are already there if i do not have a rse system. Thank you.
[ Nick  Mar 19, 2018 ]

A
If the headrest DVD players are factory installed, then you need them as GM does not use a standard RCA connections. If the headrest players are aftermarket, then no as most aftermarket units use RCA connections.
