Question Headrest Monitor questions

Hey, i have these monitors in the headrest of my truck when i bought it, but of course they dont work. I just wanted to see if any of you guys have worked with these before and know what i would need for them to work or am i just crap out of luck with non working monitors in my headrest. I know that i need a DIN Cable, 8 pin for both but i dont know where they run to and navigation cable if needed or want. And then a 3 pin ext. pwr cable but idk where it would run either.

From what I can tell the unit is a standalone av monitor. You will need the av box that goes with it, the din cable connects the screen to the av box, and a separate nav box and cable for that.
You would need a power plug as well. You can get this from Alpine, they are on the web. If they did work at one time you should see the power and din cables in the opening through the seat. I would bet that everything is installed in the center console. Underseat mounting is possible depending on how shallow, and there is always behind rear seats. If you find the connections we can troubleshoot from there.
Hope that helped,
Sean

ok. i will go out today and look and see if maybe i can find something for it...(Fingers crossed)

Update: Well i just went out and took both monitors out and i dont see any cables at all or any boxes in either center console or under the seats. So either they never finished the job or some reason took out all the parts for it.

You can always contact Alpine on the Web. 8" screens are a nice addition if the parts aren't too bad.
Good luck,
Sean

Off topic but can you post pictures of how they look in your seats? I have a flip down and am not crazy about it. Would like to install these
