Just spent 10 hours on the road over Christmas and I set up a $20 roku premier (tucked into the seat pocket behind passenger seat) and hooked up the Nintendo Switch (sat on the floor right behind center console) for the kids and it worked out really well. Ugly wires running all over the place but it wasn't really an issue for anyone. Not clean or ideal by any means but it did keep the peace amongst the kids. So the RSE isn't a total waste of money, but it's certainly not a great product

We also drove a many hours over the holiday weekend going back and forth from Iowa to Central Illinois, back to Iowa, then to Chicago burbs. I used the hot spot from my Verizon phone, which I have unlimited use of in my plan.

I purchased a Chromecast w/Google TV on sale for $39.90 at Target last Thursday for one screen. This option was great because it comes with a remote. https://store.google.com/us/product/chromecast_google_tv?hl=en-US

We also had a Switch set up for the other screen, the dock and cables were messy but it did work well. Both teenage kids were happy, they used the wireless headphones that came with the system.

I almost thought about making a YouTube video showing how to use it like this for anyone struggling. Would anyone benefit from this here?

I had the exact same setup in my Tahoe this week, my first road trip using the RSE. Did you notice audio sync issues w/ your Chromecast running on the HDMI ports?

This comes on when you turn on the screen, I guess there might be an update that will fix this but doesn't seem like USB52fce5fb-5a46-473d-aa5e-9a81117ca463.jpg connection will be supported.

I kept seeing that wireless streaming (DLNA based) would be available for the 22's, as replacement for usb streaming, but can't seem to find any info on how it works at this point

well I just got a check from GM for a car payment, 1300 not 2k but better then nothing.. Crazy they only offered 500 worth of aftermarket GM gift cards or a "reimbursed" car payment..

anyway, anyone figured out the best setup without internet?? I have unlimited data but on road trips run into a lot of areas that don't have cell service and would still like a option of streaming movies, since DVD play is gone!!

GM Pulled the Rear Seat Entertainment from the Yukon/Tahoe/Suburban for the rest of this model year.. this sucks..
is there an aftermarket rear seat entertainment system (either dual monitor screens or drop-down displays) that would connect to the front screen? not so much for watching on the front screen but i wanna be able to control it from the front screen.
Any info would be appreciated

We've had our '21 for about 6 months now and the RSE has been used maybe 4 times in total. Didn't really want it to begin with and it's proving to be a total waste of money. My 7 year old would way rather play the handheld nintendo switch and 10 year old would rather watch her ipad when traveling longer distance which isn't very often for us.

I told my wife we would hook up the switch as well and they could take turns shuffling from the third row (with iPad entertainment) to the second row to play video games. Seems like the easiest option at the moment.
