Rear DVD system questions?

I found a jeep matching my specs but it also has the rear dvd system in it. I can't say I want it, but curious to know how it works. Our other car has one and the kids can each watch different discs. One screen can feed from the changer in the dash and the other can feed from the disc in the center armrest. It looks like the jeep system is single disc? Can one screen pull media from an external input via hdmi or even a USB thumb drive? Is there still the small upper tray in the center armrest with the dvd system in there?

Thanks

Rear DVD system questions?

Yes, 1 monitor can play the DVD, and the other can play from an external source. Each seat has A/V and hdmi hookups. So there is only 1 integrated DVD player (in the arm rest), none in the dash. You could use a portable DVD player and plug it into one of the seats directly.

No storage tray in arm rest...which is dumb. I feel like they still could have fit one in there

As Jeverall said, there are inputs in each chair for optional sources.

Here are some pics of the OEM setup in the 2014/2015 vehicles:

Thanks guys for the info. Do you find there is any problems with those monitors vibrating against the seat head rest when driving down rough roads?

No, and if you look at the pics you'll notice that the monitors are on a hinge so you can fold them down if you wanted. If the monitors were all opened all the way against the headrest, it probably wouldn't be a good viewing angle for the rear passenger. You can see in my pic it isn't even against the driver headrest I haveImageUploadedByJeepGarage1452264852.368291.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1452264869.321518.jpg

Thanks for the pictures Jeverall. Can you post a picture of what the center armrest looks like with the blu-ray player. I'm curious how much space is left for my stuff.

To me it lacks storage.. It still looks like they could have incorporated the tray under armrest... The dimensions are app 7"L x 2"W x 4" deep

Thanks for the pic. Yeah that bluray player really hogs up the bin.
