There are plenty of reasons you should consider installing a headrest video monitor or combination headrest monitor and DVD player in your vehicle. Slim and compact, they take up little space in the vehicle, but deliver lots of entertainment value. Units can be integrated into headrests or attached directly to the factory headrest’s post, allowing them to be compatible with many of today’s newer vehicles equipped with active headrest features. Plug and Play DVD Headrests Plug and play systems are essentially pre-installed within a replacement headrest. Installation requires little more than removing the existing headrest and plugging the replacement into the vehicle’s entertainment system.  Custom Installed Headrest DVD Players Vehicle owners who want to maintain the factory aesthetics of their vehicle love custom installed headrest DVD players. Installation of these systems requires cutting into the existing headrest and flushing the monitor inside. The main advantage to this type of system is that it blends seamlessly into the overall interior of the vehicle. Custom Factory Look and Fit Headrest DVD Players Another option for vehicle owners who prefer aftermarket quality when it comes to picture quality and playback options, but want the same factory look, is our OEM custom headrests. Made to OEM specifications, even down to the exact leather pattern, color and grain, these will look like they came right from the factory. You can even have your vehicle model stitched onto the headrest. For consumers interested in this option, Audio Express offers special order factory-matched head rests with your choice of 7 or 8 inch screens with the highest quality DVD player available. Choosing Integrated or Self-Contained Systems Another question you need to determine is whether you want an integrated system or one that is self-contained. Integrated systems can be connected to a DVD head unit, which makes it possible to share media on multiple screens and the speaker system within the vehicle. These do require a little more wiring, but the results can keep the whole family entertained on long road trips. Conversely, you may prefer a self-contained system, which requires little more than connecting it to the car’s power supply, and typically enjoying sound thru a separate wireless IR headphone. These systems include either an LED or LCD backlit monitor, DVD player and speakers or an audio output. This limits the ability to share the entertainment being enjoyed, but it gives everyone the flexibility to enjoy their favorite programming in peace.     Sorting Through Features Galore There are more than a few additional features you should look for when installing a vehicle entertainment package. Built-in video games, remote controls and, of course, USB ports and extra headphone jacks are features that you may want to include. The key to selecting the right features is to determine your existing needs and forecast the features that would be most beneficial to the members of your family.

Long gone are the days when children needed to play Slug Bug or read road signs to keep from getting bored on a long road trip. As you prepare your car for a cross-country drive this summer, installing things like dropdown video monitors or headrest monitors will ensure that everyone enjoys the ride over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house. Dropdown Video Monitors Can Pick Everyone Up Drop-down video monitors come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from seven inches up to 23 inches. Many have HDMI inputs and are Wi-Fi capable, which makes them easy to connect to DVD players, tablets, laptops, etc. for easy streaming. When coupled with wireless headphone transmitters, dropdown monitors can keep the kids entertained so you can focus on the road. Headrest Monitors and Flip Down DVD Players Create Comfort If you are looking for something easy to install that won’t ever get in the way, headrest monitors and Flip Down DVD players are definitely something you want to consider. These feature seven- to nine-inch LED or LCD screens that can be easily adjusted and controlled. They also feature two or more A/V inputs so they can be connected to game machines, laptops, tablets and phones. These are some of the most popular rear seat video options on the market because they are so easy to use and provide hours of cross-country entertainment.  In-Dash Navigation Will Get You Where You Want to Go If you don’t like stopping for directions and don’t feel like trusting the clerk at the gas station, then in-dash navigation is a must-have for your summer excursions. Options such as the Kenwood DNX893S feature touchscreen controls and Garmin 3-D building maps to help you get wherever you want to go. Plus, built-in navigation will keep you on track even when your phone loses data and is no longer in your cellular service range. Most will allow you to connect your in-dash navigation system to Apple Car Play or ANDROID AUTO and other navigation tools. With these, you can use your monitor to send messages, make calls and pull up directions on demand as your route changes and you decide to make a new pit stop or two along the way. Professional Installation at Audio Express Puts It All Together There is nothing worse than a rear seat video player or in-dash navigation system that conks out on a long journey. At Audio Express, our professional installation team makes sure that all the components are properly wired and tightly secured.
