In-Car DVD Player
After our recent jaunt to Scotland it now appears that it would be a good idea to get an in card dvd player for the kids. Never mind the glorious scenery as we went through Cumbria and Dumfries and Galloway! The calls of 'Are we there yet?' and 'How much longer' that began a mere 10 mins after we left our home are things we have no wish to put up with for much longer. There are many options, and proces vary considerably from this:
XTRONS HD702** 2x 7" In Car Headrest DVD Player Black on eBay (end time 30-Jul-10 19:48:24 BST)
A bargin at £170, but I'm not sure it will play just one film over both screens, to this:
Halfords | NextBase Click 7" DVD Player Duo
At £240 is the upper end of what I would consider. Anyway, if any of you have an in car setup you could recommend, my specs are these:
1. Must be headrest mounted
2. Must have an SD\USB slot for external media playback
3. Must have a headphone jack or IR headphone capability on each screen so both kids can have their own set.

Having experienced the "are we there yet" monotone question over the years with my children I would go for the XTRONS HD702** 2x 7" In Car Headrest DVD Player Black on eBay (end time 30-Jul-10 19:48:24 BST)
As these look very good value for money and they work independently of each other and support the wireless headphones pretty cool for the kids.

No need to stop at DVDs, if you have the screens you can pick up a slim PS2 and auto power supply for it that will play DVDs and also allow for some console gaming. As its viable to do that here I imagine that it would be realitivly easy and cheap to pick up the same kind of setup in the UK off ebay or something for a non-traumatic amount.

Ideally though, I'd want the kids to be watching the same film. I may contact them and see if one can act as a dumb monitor.

Just buy yourself some earplugs - its good for kids to learn how to deal with boredom. Least thats what I told myself when I drove to the south of France with a 7 year old in the back...

Have to say my kids loved watching the "telly" in the car on our way to Scotland last week and even thought I was also trying to get them to look at the great country side all we got was can we watch toy story 2.
We bought a 2 screen set from Argos the other year. They both have dvd players in them but one of them is also and output so they can both watch the same film too.
Only issue we had was that the fabia doesn't have a second rear mounted lighter socket unlike the Meriva we previously had.
