Do you have kids that need some entertainment while you're driving around town? You may be interested in getting a car entertainment system to keep them busy. Here are some things to look for when purchasing one of these systems.
Quantity Of Screens
You're not putting a big screen TV in your vehicle since it is not very practical. That's why you will want a car entertainment system that comes with multiple screens that will be in sync together. This will allow you to place a screen in the middle and back section of a minivan and not have kids complaining that they can't see the screen well or fighting over who gets the prime seat closest to the screen.
Take a look at how the screens actually mount into your vehicle and if it is easily compatible with the vehicle you own. For example, the easiest way to mount a screen is by using a headrest mount. This will require having a vehicle with removable headsets so that the mount can be placed around the post that goes into the seat. The nice thing about a headrest mount system is that they are very easy to install and do not require putting any holes in your vehicle to get the job done. It allows for an easy installation that anybody can do.
You'll want to make sure that your car entertainment system is compatible with the media that you want to use. At the very least, it will be nice to have a system that works with a DVD or Blu-ray player so that you can take your discs from your home library and just pop them into your vehicle for a car ride. It is also nice to have the ability to store media files to a hard drive so that there is no need to worry about discs getting lost or scratched between viewings.
Some car entertainment systems have the ability to connect to your phone and use it as a mobile hotspot, so you can use your favorite streaming apps while in your vehicle. This may be preferred if you live in an area with good cellular reception since you can log in with your Netflix subscription and let your kids view shows from their profile.
