We all need a little help keeping the children in the backseat entertained for a little peace and quiet. The brand new Clarus Phantom 1 is here to help keep the kids relaxed and the ride peaceful. The Phantom is a 10.1" universal attachable DVD headrest monitor, perfect for any vehicle, with or without active headrests.

Headrest post attachment system

The Phantom 1 is insanely easy install to the poles of your headrest and only takes a few minutes. The first step is fitting the mount brackets with the right sized trim slots to create a tight fit. Then place the mount around the headrest poles and lock it in place. Make sure it's a snug fit and that the unlock buttons are facing up for easy removal.

The back of the Monitor features a mounting slot with position squares. Press the release button at the top to unlock and slide the Monitor on to the mount. Adjust it to the height of your liking and you're ready to power it up. You can also easily store the display in a safe place when the vehicle is parked.

Quick power connection with cigarette lighter cord

For power, use the included cigarette lighter cable for quick convenience, or install the permanent power cord through the seats for that clean, factory look. This cable allows you to cross connect two Phantom 1’s together so both of your kids can watch the same DVD.

The Phantom 1 is a modern design and resembles an iPad or Tablet. The black and grey trims look great in any car interior.

Headrest post attachment system

The Phantom features an HDMI input for HD video sources like Video Game consoles or your mobile phone with one caveat, the HDMI signal cannot be shared with another Phantom 1, you will need to connect them individually.

The side panel reveals a USB port and SD card slot to play stored media such as MP3’s and MP2’s. It also has a headphone jack, DC12V power and AV input. For audio, the Phantom has built in speakers, a built in FM Modulator to play the audio through the vehicle speakers or with use optional two channel wireless headphones .

The screen has a resolution of 1024 x 480 and touchscreen buttons on the bottom panel.

I wasn't extremely pleased with this DVD player. Our mentally handicapped adult son has been watching movies in the car for the past 40 years and this is the best player are have purchased. It has a beautiful display, and the sound is excellent. We love that it resumes when you leave the vehicle and then come back. Very easy to install and very quick shipping. Could not be any happier with the purchase. (Posted on 12/8/2016)

How/where does the Clarus Phantom 1 load DVDs? Is it a flip down screen or auto load?
