    It would probably be a lot cheaper to have a third-party overhead DVD player installed (or just buy a portable DVD player).

    Thanks but I've already considered the portable players and I'm not sure I want to install an overhead unit since I have the solar roof. The headrest units also allow 2 people to play different movies or games. I'm still weighing the options.

    Wow, that's expensive. I bought a portable for a couple of hundred dollars from Walmart to put in the airplane when we went to Alaska. Kids just put the screens in their lap, but they were made to mount on the headrest somehow or another, worked fine in their lap. With this one you it was actually two different units because you could play different movies, games etc, but they drew power from one plug. When we got back, I gave it to my daughter for her kids.

    Can you play multiple dvds and also watch the same movie?
    How is the back up camera that you installed?

    The headrest has video input so you can play the same movie on all 3 displays or play individual movies at the same time, back up camera is similar to factory. I remember reading a thread saying that the oem back up camera is made by Sony. It is very comparable w/ the pioneer one.

    I've had both the Eonon and Xtrons 9" dvd headrest from ebay. So far I'm pretty happy with them. If you get the HD (800x480 Pixel screes) they look fantastic. However if you do slave viewing from one head rest the slave video does not look as good. This is because the video signal is passed through composite, which is very low resolution. I'm not aware of any sets that have component input and output. The Xtrons slot loading touchscreen set looks a lot better on the slave, I think it has a better scaler then the older Eonon non touchscreen HD set I had. I think these are both clones of the Autotain ones (a little more expensive) actually they may even be manufactured by the same factories.

    The set that are non slot loading and non touchscreen are a little bigger, and in the prius they looked big and out of place. The headrest for most of the 7" ones seem to be about the same size, so you get a smaller screen, but not much smaller of a headrest.

    Here's a detail of a install I did.

    Good stuff, so you prefer the Xtrons over the Eonon and the Pyle? I am just confused about the size, Do you prefer the 9" touchscreen Xtrons with the slot versus the 7" with flip open for a prius?

    I thought you had the Pyle in your car from the pictures.


    Also do you still have the Pioneer Avic and if so could i use the steering wheel controls with it?

    Thanks for you help.

    I believe 06d has the Pyle. I've had the Eonon in my Prius, and now I have the Xtrons in my HS 250h. I'm not sure what size the Pyle 7" dvd headrest are. But if you look at the Eonon 7" zippered dvd players, the headrest is 11.41 inches wide. The Eonon 9" zippered are 11.81" wide. The Xtrons 9" slot load are 9.8" inches wide.

    Now to confuse you more, there are actually system labeled as active headrest compatible. However I dont think they actually are. From what I understand the active headrest move the headrest up and out in an accident. Now these systems that do not replace the headrest, simply connect to the mounting posts of your current headrest. When you add something on the headrest you will increase the weight. So I dont know if you are limiting the effectiveness of the active system when you bolt on a dvd player and screen.
