    Traveling Entertainment....?

    Hubby and I are looking at buying a DVD Entertainment system for our "future" new-used car. Instead of buying a car with the Entertainment system installed (because unless we find a used car w/entertainment system, which is rare, it costs a minimum of $3,000 to have one that doesn't void any warranties installed aftermarket), we are thinking of buying a portable one. We'd only use it on long trips any way so we think it will work out better for us.

    So... does anyone have one? Like it? Don't like it? I am POSITIVE that there is someone out there that is much more knowledgeable on this subject than we are!

    We don't mind "high end". Hubby just looked on the Best Buy site for a research starter and the most expensive ones are $500- we'd still be saving $2500! We would like of like the infrared headphones, but I guess it's not totally a necessity. We have young kids (3 and "way under") so we can't do handheld ones just yet.

    So did anyone have any thoughts or advice on the topic of buying a Car DVD/Entertainment system?

    i've read that you shouldn't leave the monitors out where people can see them b/c they'll break into your car in search of the DVD system.

    You really can't go wrong with any portable DVD player on the market.

    Target (Wal-mart, kmart etc) usually have a good selection and can be less expensive than Best Buy.

    Get a 9 inch screen.

    We have one similar to this http://www.amazon.com/Kawasaki-Syste...239230?ie=UTF8, but I think it's a sony. Purchased it from Best Buy a few years ago for under $300. You strap it on the back of the front head rest. We like it because I can take it down, that way when every we go somewhere in town, the kids aren't constantly asking to watch a movie.
