Question about Car Audio & Video

I Want to use USB for saving tours, etc plus using Ipod. MANUALS state that there are rear imputs. Also, I would like to use a simple hang over the seat monitor with this system rather that install headrests.

You can indeed output Video & Audio from your Ipod, all one needs is the special "Dongle" that will plug into the Ipod Charging Port. You may also need software to do certain things, but that's no biggie.
The signal that is put out from the Ipod, is Component Video, (Green, Red & Blue ALL Video) with the Audio, being taken from the ear piece jack.
So there is NO reason why you couldn't utilise a suitable input monitor to do what you wish.
I have seen monitors similar to what you indicate on Ebay.
As for saving whatever onto the device with the USB IN, then again, this shouldn't be any problem, however these inputs usually only work with a pre-formatted USB disc, with whatever is wanted pre-loaded on it, then the unit will "read" the data on said USB drive.
Also I believe that there maybe an way to input to the Ipod from the USB equipped devices, be that a DVD etc.also some too have Video out as well, usually though this is Composite Video only, but still able to be hooked up to external monitors.
However really the Ipod could do it all.... Store and playback, However, to drive more than one LCD etc, you will need a suitable, Composite, or Component, distribution amplifier/splitter as usually no device will "Drive" more than one monitor at a time. These are widely available from, say Ebay etc.

Inspect the stereo in your car. If you have a new vehicle there may be a USB port. The USB port is roughly half-an-inch wide and a quarter-of-an-inch tall. A trident logo appears next to it. If you do not have this port look for an Aux port. An Aux (or auxiliary) is a circular port, the same size as the headphone port on your MP3 player.Connect the data USB cable into the MP3 player and plug it into the USB port on the car stereo. The stereo controls allows you to select the USB port as an input device. If you don't have the USB port but have an Aux port plug the MP3 player's USB to aux cable into the player, then connect the aux jack end into the Aux port. Like with the USB port you can select "Aux" on the car stereo.

Connect the AC power adapter to USB cable into the MP3 player. The AC power adapter connects to the cigarette lighter, or AC power port, of your car.Adjust the radio on your car until you find a station with no broadcasts.Adjust the radio frequency display on the AC power adapter until it matches that of the radio. When you play the music from your MP3 player you can hear the music over the radio.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting

How do I charge my new iphone 16GB?

Your new iPhone comes with a USB cable and a wall charger in the box. If you don't have a computer, you can plug the wall charger to any socket in your house and connect your iPhone to the wall charger using the USB cable. However, if you have a computer, you can plug the USB cable to any USB slot from your computer and connect it to your iPhone.
