In dash dvd

So I have a 05 G6 GT and I'm thinkin about buying an in dash dvd player. I know that I want an ipod ready, 7in monitor, and with blu tooth. Any ideas of what brand and where I can find it. Also what other parts do I need to purchase in order to install it.

You dont need to purchase anything else to install it or what not, crutchfield gives it all to you. you do need to make sure you buy the bluetooth add-on.
If you want to see how it looks in dash just take a peek.

No.
At first i was worried about that too because i thought i would lose my warranty. So i researched it. According to some law, a dealership can only void your warranty if they can prove an aftermarket part you added caused your vehicle to fail.

Also so that i avoided the whole oil life thing, i read in the manual that there is a way you can manually reset the oil for the computer with doing some step rhythem to the brake pedals.

However, there is a way to still get the stuff to stay. But you can only get a single-din sized head unit. You need this here..Adapter Package
But from what i have heard this isnt the greatest add-on.

Hope that in some way answers what you wanted to know.

i have that metra kit. put it in the glove box. installed a double din in dash. the wiring harness on the kit also maintains your beeps and power after your car is off. wasn't much more than the gm wiring harness. i dont have pics but i got the idea from a thread on this forum, it had pics

Crazy! I am about to get the same DVD player above (the Pioneer 4100) and I am looking into how to keep the driver info too. I dont mind to lose it but I dont want to trip any sensors or anything. And yes they only make the single din to the metra kit. Does anyone hafe the metra kit and can you take a picture of it? Even if I have to stick it in the glove like Krizax. Hey Krizax, what DVD player do you have installed? And how did you mound the metric kit in the glove?

I have a pioneer avic-x910bt. After cutting all the excess plastic off the metra kit i found it was actually able to stand nicely on it's own. I stuck some velcro on it to get it to stay where i wanted it.
