Rear-Seat DVD Entertainment Systems

Rear DVD entertainment system

A rear DVD entertainment system was a factory option on all 2005-2009 Grand Cherokee models. For 2005 and 2006 the screen size was 7". It was increased to 8" for the 2008 models and to 9" for 2009 models. It was discontinued for the 2010 model year.

The optional DVD entertainment system consists of a center-console-mounted DVD player with an overhead active matrix LCD display integrated into the headliner, a wireless remote control and two wireless headsets. In addition to video DVDs, the system plays audio DVDs, audio CDs, MP3 audio discs and video CDs. There are also plug-in jacks on the housing to show video from a video camera, to connect video games for display on the screen, and to play music directly from an MP3 player.

A unique feature of the DVD entertainment system, operated by the remote control unit and made possible by the vehicleís Controller Area Network system, is the ability of the vehicle speakers to play audio from a disc in the DVD player while the headphones play audio from the satellite radio, AM/FM radio, or a disc in the radio CD player.

"Chrysler Groupís vehicle communications strategy places an emphasis on creating a safe driving environment through practical innovations, while enabling customers to choose the services they want," said Withrow. "Itís all about simplicity, safety, freedom and flexibility."
