    Default Rear DVD Player

    Thanks in advance for your help. Just got a 2011 Suburban LTZ. Wanted 3rd row overhead (flip down) DVD option, but the dealer didn't have one on the lot. Instead he talked me into having him install an aftermarket Audiovox DVD player (9"). It is nice to be able to play a different movie than what the front DVD is playing (from factory 3rd row is simply a slave to in-dash dvd player). However, I think the picture is crap compared to the OEM Panasonic in the second row. Can anyone tell me the following:
    - what model is the 8" OEM Panasonic?
    - where can you get one (including mounting plate and remote control - wiring is already in place), i.e. are they available from dealers or some other source?
    -need a gray one (black interior, gray headliner)

    The reason I ask is the dealer's parts department has no clue how to find it and are curious why I'd want one ("don't you already have one?"). They insist that the headrest units are the only things available as accessories. But I tell them that GM puts them in as an option so how is it they don't sell them loose - what would happen if you had a warranty issue and needed one replaced. So far it's been an exercise in futility dealing with the dealership, so I figure this is the place to get real info.

    thanks again, B

    It is not a Panasonic Aftermarket unit. Meaning you can't buy That model at any store and they no longer sell 12 volt aftermarket only OEM. So the dealer is the only Co you can get it from.. I am a dealer for vizualogic who makes some of the Best Head rest Tv's and some over heads. You can go to www.vizualogic.com and see if there is something you like.

    Let me know...

    Can anyone tell me the part number for the OEM overhead montior? Perhaps I can find a used one somewhere. Thanks.
