Long gone are the days when children needed to play Slug Bug or read road signs to keep from getting bored on a long road trip. As you prepare your car for a cross-country drive this summer, installing things like dropdown video monitors or headrest monitors will ensure that everyone enjoys the ride over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house.
Dropdown Video Monitors Can Pick Everyone Up
Drop-down video monitors come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from seven inches up to 23 inches. Many have HDMI inputs and are Wi-Fi capable, which makes them easy to connect to DVD players, tablets, laptops, etc. for easy streaming. When coupled with wireless headphone transmitters, dropdown monitors can keep the kids entertained so you can focus on the road.
Headrest Monitors and Flip Down DVD Players Create Comfort
If you are looking for something easy to install that won’t ever get in the way, headrest monitors and Flip Down DVD players are definitely something you want to consider. These feature seven- to nine-inch LED or LCD screens that can be easily adjusted and controlled.
They also feature two or more A/V inputs so they can be connected to game machines, laptops, tablets and phones. These are some of the most popular rear seat video options on the market because they are so easy to use and provide hours of cross-country entertainment.
In-Dash Navigation Will Get You Where You Want to Go
If you don’t like stopping for directions and don’t feel like trusting the clerk at the gas station, then in-dash navigation is a must-have for your summer excursions. Options such as the Kenwood DNX893S feature touchscreen controls and Garmin 3-D building maps to help you get wherever you want to go. Plus, built-in navigation will keep you on track even when your phone loses data and is no longer in your cellular service range.
Most will allow you to connect your in-dash navigation system to Apple Car Play or ANDROID AUTO and other navigation tools. With these, you can use your monitor to send messages, make calls and pull up directions on demand as your route changes and you decide to make a new pit stop or two along the way.
