In-car video systems are great for people who spend a lot of time sitting in their cars; overhead systems are great for large vehicles with two or more rows of seats to keep the soccer team happy; headrest-mounted systems are ideal for vehicles with one or two kids in the back. With the right setup you can even have two different shows going at once, or add a video game console into the mix!
Most AV Receivers have built-in DVD players, some of which have multiple disc changers. Some of the more advanced systems can stream digital video from smart phones, USB drives, Flash memory cards and other devices. Audio playback can either be through the vehicle’s speaker system or directly to headphones – wired or the wireless variety. Kids can listen to Sesame Street while you listen to music or sports.
The costs vary with the options that you would like — screen size, audio options, DVD options and more. Whatever your needs, we’ve got you covered. For long drives and happy families, drop by the store to find the right system for you!
Some reasons to consider in-car video:
- An average of 15 people die each day in the U.S. from distracted driving; kids can be very distracting unless you distract them first!
- With airfare going up, more North Americans are choosing to take vacations near home, which means long drives that can be made shorter with a few videos.
- Video is such a popular feature for parents that many minivans already come with at least one screen or already have the mounts in place so video can be added later.
