Your Car Entertainment System Reimagined
As technology advances, modern vehicles have become a hub of interactive and intuitive entertainment systems, featuring options to control climate, audio, and navigation screens.
The vehicle’s compatibility with iOS and Android devices is particularly impressive, enabling a level of customization that significantly enhances user experience.
The interactivity offered by these systems ensures a seamless connection with mobile devices, ushering in a new era of in-vehicle entertainment.
Innovative Design: A Game-Changer in Rear Entertainment Systems
Automobile manufacturers invest heavily in updating rear entertainment systems rather than battling unnecessary lawsuits.
The outcome is a powerful, user-oriented system that is sure to impress. Equipped with two 12.6-inch touchscreens nestled between the front-row headrests, the system guarantees enjoyable content viewing for rear passengers.
In a spectacular feat of integration, the system also links with the vehicle’s navigation, offering rear passengers the ability to communicate with the infotainment screen up front. The system’s control can be projected onto the video screen at the front, enabling the sharing of various programs and materials to rear-seat windows.
Tailoring to Your Needs: Customizing Entertainment Options
Depending on your vehicle’s version, multiple configurations are available, including a folding monitor mounted on the roof, improved head restraints, or even replacing the installed front seats.
You can consult your local dealer or a mobile tuner to explore the entertainment options suitable for your vehicle’s back seat. For parents who want their children to control what they watch and hear, the system provides a separate audio program and headphones, letting the kids enjoy while the parents can relish their music.
Unprecedented Versatility: Adapting to Changing Requirements
The range of screen sizes accommodates your vehicle’s specific needs. Screens can be integrated into the rear or front headrests using innovative Screaming Technology and linked to a video recorder installed at the vehicle’s rear. A highlight of this versatile media system is the two class-leading 12.6-inch LCD touchscreens mounted on the front seats’ back.
While these screens might not be visible to passengers in the third row, they can be tilted for improved visibility. The dual high-resolution 10.0-inch touchscreens at the back, installed in 1920, allow rear passengers to indulge in their favorite films.
Endless Entertainment: Detachable Screens and More
The 10.0-inch touchscreens are removable, allowing the entertainment to be carried beyond the vehicle and into the home. The dual-headrest entertainment system in the rear permits passengers to stream games from mobile devices or watch live TV on a spin box. Depending on the package chosen, the entertainment system might include a 9.0-inch Blu-ray and DVD player at the rear.
This backseat entertainment option is a godsend for those weary of children fighting over portable DVD players and tablets during long trips. It ensures every passenger at the rear has their screen, making journeying more peaceful and fun.
Aftermarket Solutions: Upgrading Your In-Car Entertainment
Consideration of aftermarket rear-seat entertainment systems should take into account the number of screens required for your vehicle. A cost-effective option could be to use an existing iPad or Android tablet attached to the seat backrest.
Alternatively, the screens of a current car could be used to build a bespoke rear seat entertainment system, with the option of removable screens for added flexibility.
User-Friendly Features: Ensuring an Immersive Experience
Every system comes with a pair of wireless headphones and a remote control. With the positioning of two 2-watt speakers towards the back, sound can reach the rear passengers without disturbing the front.
This allows easy, hands-free viewing when children are sharing the screen. A USB port is available for charging streaming sticks like the Amazon Fire TV Stick or Roku Streaming Stick. While the system design doesn’t support Bluetooth, a cost-effective Bluetooth adapter can enable headphone connectivity.
Understanding the Components of a Car Rear Entertainment System
Before diving into the installation process, it’s important to understand the components of a typical car’s rear entertainment system. These include:
- Display screens: Usually installed on the headrest or roof of the vehicle, offering passengers a clear view.
- DVD player or multimedia device: Acts as a source of entertainment, playing DVDs, streaming videos, or connecting to gaming consoles.
- Headphones: For personalized audio, minimizing disturbances to the driver.
- Remote Control: Provides easy control over the system’s operations.
Choosing the Right Rear Entertainment System
When it comes to choosing a rear entertainment system, several factors should be considered:
- Screen Size and Resolution: Larger screens and higher resolution provide a better viewing experience.
- Installation Type: Choose headrest, flip-down, or in-dash systems based on your vehicle and personal preference.
- Connectivity: Ensure it supports HDMI, USB, and Bluetooth for various entertainment options.
- Durability: Look for robustly built systems that can withstand road vibrations and regular usage.
Step-by-Step Guide to Install a Car Rear Entertainment System
This section provides a detailed process for installing a car’s rear entertainment system.
Step 1: Plan Your Setup
First, plan your installation. Identify where to place the screens and DVD player and how to route the cables. Depending on your car model, this can vary greatly.
Step 2: Prepare Your Tools
Ensure you have the necessary tools. These include a screwdriver, wire cutters, electrical tape, and any specific tools mentioned in your system’s installation guide.
Step 3: Remove the Headrest
Start by removing the headrest where you want to install the screen. Be gentle to avoid damaging the seats.
Step 4: Install the Screens
Place the screens in the position you’ve decided. You’ll need to insert the screens into the headrest if it’s a headrest system. For flip-down systems, you’ll mount it on the roof.
Step 5: Route the Cables
Route the cables from the screens to the source device. To keep them hidden, you’ll need to tuck them into the car’s upholstery neatly.
Step 6: Connect the System
Connect the system to the power source, ensuring all the cables are securely connected. Connect the system to the source device, too.
Step 7: Test the System
Turn on the car and test the system. Make sure the sound, video, and controls are all functioning correctly.
Keeping Your System in Top Condition
Once installed, it’s important to maintain your rear entertainment system. Keep the screens clean, handle the remote control carefully, and avoid overloading the system.
