Default 8.4an and video

My current truck has the 430n which comes with the cd/DVD player so I am able to play movies while in park (only put one DVD in it in 2 years and that was just to test it). I did not add the CD player to my ordered '13 but I am curious if video is even possible on the 8.4an. I got a crew cab and would like to add video screens in the back for my daughter and future child. I did not see an option for that while ordering.

If you want it to come through your 8.4A or AN you would need to get the lock pick or nav tv thing, but you can add very nice headrest DVD screens that match perfectly to your interior and have DVD players built in. They will cost you a pretty penny though. I think a member on here got the nav tv thing and hooked it up so the 8.4 and headrest monitors were all hooked up together

What if I put a movie on a USB flash drive or something. Could I plug it into the USB port and play the video when parked at least? Is there a new lockpick for the 8.4 radios? I have one on my 430n in my '11 and its cool and all but its not as cool as I expected it to be.

Is there a factory option for tvs in the back or maybe just one in the middle of the headliner? I haven't seen that anywhere.

I remember reading about the RH1 Remote CD player on the ALLPAR website
( the CD is an option that goes into center seat console )

RH1 Single Disc Remote CD Player - $195
Single Disc Remote CD Player

here is the only thing that i can find about the radios & RH1 remote cd
http://www.allpar.com/corporate/tech/uconnect.html

The next-generation UConnect comes with the next stereos. The UConnect R3 (8.4 inch touch-screen) adds UConnect Access, including crash notification, 911 or roadside assistance calls, monthly vehicle health reports, voice texting, WiFi hotspots (pay per use), dead-reckoning with gyro, and optional rear-seat Blu-Ray DVD player; buyers can pay $595 to upgrade it with navigation. But those who want navigation should get the R4, which costs only $500 more, and also includes HD radio. A CD player is in the lower storage bin of the center console.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am waiting for someone that ordered the RA3 or RA 4 radio & RH1 cd player from the factory to try it out & give it REVIEW

Does it play videos on screen in park or NOT ?
I am asking about the stock radio & cd player, not some after market devise

Where did you find the blu-ray player information? I'm curious about the CD player playing movies also but you would think they would advertise it as Cd/DVD player.
