Congrats! Hey, how much did they charge you to add the DVD Headrests?
Well, I am having the GM Accessory Invision GENIII system installed in our 2008 XR AWD when it arrives. The fold down screen really blocks my vision in the rearview mirror, but some say it doesn't affect them much. Go test drive one with it down and see if it bothers you. I am 6'2", so it seems the taller you are, the more in your line of site it is going to be. My friend (also 6'2") and his wife (5'5") say the same thing about their 2007 Outlook, and wished they had the headrest screens. We have a boy and soon a girl, and they will want to watch different things. So the Invision system gives you the ability to watch two seperate DVD programs, or the same one if you wish. Also, with the second row captain's chairs, our son was no where near being able to reach the headrest screen, so that should not be a problem. The Invision system also comes with two pairs of wireless headsets, so the kids can listen to the DVD, and you can listen to the Outlooks audio system at the same time, without having to listen to whatever DVD or game the kids are listening to at the time. But, if you want, I was told that you can also listen to it throught the car's audio system as well. Oh yeah, the GENIII system also lets you plug games right into the front of the screen, whereas I am not sure you can do that with the fold down screen. So those are some of the pros and cons, for us the choice was clear, the headrest screens, but for others, the fold down is the option they opt for Good luck whatever you decide.mama2girls said:OK - I am going to jump in here from the Acadia side (sorry!) but I am trying to work thru this one myself. This is what I want - for my kids to be able to watch a movie on their headsets and I can listen to whatever else I want whether it is a CD or MP3 or whatever.
BUT, sometimes I want to listen to the movie they are watching - my kids enjoy musicals like "Annie" and it can be quite catchy on a road trip!!!
PLUS, I am concerned about the view to the rear with the factory fold down unit so headrest units are tempting.
ALSO, concerned that aftermarket (inivision or another) would not be integrated sound.
SO, which factory or aftermarket system is best for me?
