WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR CAR
We’ve all been there before - the unfortunate situation when, a few days after you’ve left the dealer’s lot after purchasing a new car, the sudden realization dawns on you that your manufacturer-integrated DVD and video player doesn’t have the features you or your kids want for perfect rear-seat entertainment. Or maybe it doesn’t have any seatback entertainment, period!
SO WHAT DO YOU DO?
The main question that presents itself in these circumstances is, where do you turn to for professional installation services once you’ve decided that you want an aftermarket car DVD player?
Fortunately, we at San Diego Car Stereo can help you overcome the technological shortfalls that plague many in-seat DVD and video entertainment systems. Plus, we can even install aftermarket car DVD players in vehicles that didn’t come standard with the equipment.
The aftermarket offerings for most car manufacturer models allow for a quick exchange and upgrade of a feature-poor, manufacturer-equipped DVD/video entertainment system. Consumers can, in most cases, upgrade their DVD and video system and choose a tailored solution for the rear-seat entertainment system equipment that perfectly reflects and suits their needs.
CHOOSING THE BEST DVD AND VIDEO PLAYERS
The best media players for your vehicle depends on how you consume media and where you’ll be driving. If you need to be able to watch videos when there’s no internet connection, a DVD player could be the right option. Your media is stored offline on physical discs, so you don’t need to rely on an internet connection.
Another option is a video player that supports media files, like .avi and .mov. You can download and watch videos offline with this option, but choose a video player that allows you to update codecs. This means you’ll be able to watch new formats of videos in the future.
The third clear option is a media player that works in tandem with your smartphone or built-in Wi-Fi. This allows you to stream media directly from sites like Netflix or Amazon Prime when you have a good internet connection.
CHOOSE PROFESSIONAL CAR VIDEO PLAYER INSTALLATION
Most car manufacturers have purposely connected their original entertainment systems to the wiring harness in such a way that your potential do-it-yourself approach will trigger multiple warning lights from the ECUs if you’re not completely familiar with the internal operation and wiring of such systems. Hence, replacing these less-than-perfect rear-seat entertainment systems should only be considered if you have prior experience working with an aftermarket car DVD player.
If something goes wrong during a do-it-yourself replacement, you’re often faced with warranty forfeitures; at this point, the only real option is to turn to professional services that undertake these system changes regularly and are thus familiar with the exact wiring harness needs that feed into the electronic circuits of your car’s computerized controls.
San Diego Car Stereo had the technical expertise to deal with most car manufacturer’s standard DVD/video entertainment equipment. You’ll not only get professional service that prevents you from having nightmares about wiring diagrams, but, more importantly, you’ll get an efficiency-versus-cost formula that will work in your wallet’s favor.
A BETTER IN-CAR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM
If you consider the prices you pay for many of the car manufacturer’s standard entertainment systems, you may be better off to immediately turn to your professional installer post your car purchase to integrate a new system perfectly designed from the get-go to work in your vehicle rather than having the pointless expense of a poorly performing seatback entertainment system in the first place. Most of the time, combining a car DVD player with a video player entertainment system option with all the installation services included will cost the same amount of money as the poor option from the manufacturer.
Our professional team at San Diego Car Stereo wants to invite you to come and check out our services to see the latest offerings in rear-seat entertainment systems before the purchase of your next car. But even when you have already made your vehicle purchase that includes a poorly designed entertainment system, we’re here to help overcome this shortcoming. We can fashion an integrated solution that makes everyone in your family happy on those long vacation trips.
