  • Connecting laptop to In dash dvd player

    First of, I am a noob-and I have searched the forum first for a solution. I want to buy an in-dash dvd player, probably the ddx-6019. What is the easiest way to connect this in-dash screen to my laptop? Will the touch screen work with all of the computer functions (internet, word documents)? Is there a in-dash dvd player that would work better with connecting a laptop? Will the quality be ok with connecting the laptop to the kenwood? How difficult is the installation of connecting the laptop and the monitor?

    All questions can probably be answered better by the toll-free (us) support at Crutchfield. Doesn't matter if you're going to buy from them or not - ask them as they have all the documentation for that unit at their fingertips.

      When I called crutchfield, they told me there was no way to connect my laptop to the Kenwood DDX-7017. Is this really true?

        You'd need a video-in on the laptop to connect the DVD player & play DVDs on the laptop screen. Most laptops don't have video-in.

        No, the touchscreen won't work to control your laptop. It will opnly control the headunit's functions.

        If the laptop has a composite video out, then the process is pretty simple and the answer can be found in these forums with a simple search.
