2013 Escalade ESV w/ Navi & Bose

Post by airnak23 » Thu Sep 27, 2018 11:56 pm

I'm looking to upgrade the factory radio with the Alpine Halo9 (ilx-f309.) I have not been able to get a definitive answer on whether or not retaining the rear seat entertainment will be possible. I was hoping there would be a way to play data files via USB on the head unit and have it play through the rear entertainment screens for the kids. I have not found many answers regarding this setup and was wondering if anyone could provide some insight. I dont want to have a DVD player, as I would prefer to use a single USB with many movies to choose from for the kids. Thank you for your time.

Hello, yes you can retain the use of the overhead monitor(s), you will need the AVGM5 harness. That harness allows video to go back to the overhead video screen(s). As far as the radio allowing video files from a USB stick to be sent through the video output of the radio, that is a question for Alpine.

Alpine says it will play via a usb or via hdmi(connected to an iPad, Apple TV, etc,) so I’m hopeful the harness you mentioned will do the trick! Thank you for the information.

All our harness does is transfers the video from the radio back to the screen. The sources you get will ultimately depend on what radio you get, and what options they have for dual zone sources.
