It’s the holiday season, and for millions of Americans, that means loading up the car for a road trip to visit family. For families with children, especially young ones, a long road trip can be a bit overwhelming. It seems no matter how much you plan ahead and no matter how many road trip activities you plan, eventually, the kids end up getting fussy or bored. Having frustrated children in the back seat can be frustrating and pose a safety hazard for distracted parents behind the wheel.

At Mobile Installation in Brooklyn Park, we love helping Twin Cities families enjoy a happier, safer ride. In this article, we’ll talk about how a DVD system can save the day when you’re on a holiday road trip with the kids this year.


Technology to the Rescue

If you’re a Baby Boomer grandparent or a Gen X or Millennial parent, there’s a good chance you remember the good and bad from low-fi road trips of your youth. Without handheld devices and in-car entertainment, there were only a few options for entertainment, and they usually ran out very quickly. After all, a person can only play “license plate bingo” for so many hours.

Once the snacks were gone and the games began to get old, the kids in the back seat would inevitably end up fussing and fighting, driving their parents up the wall. Few of us born in the previous century remember a road trip without a threat that the driver would turn the car around. In many ways, the technology of today benefits parents as much as it does the kids by giving the kids something to do when all of the other fun runs out.


DVD Systems vs. Handheld Devices

Handheld devices are great, but having a DVD system installed in your car gives your kids something to do without completely tuning everyone else out. Watching a DVD together with the other passengers allows everyone in the back seat to share the same viewing experience and gives your family something to talk about.

Here are a few more reasons you’ll love having a DVD system in your car:


●        Kids can conserve the battery on handheld devices

●        You don’t have to worry about misplacing it

●        Connect to Android devices to use apps on-screen

●        You can better monitor what everyone is viewing


Keeping the Kids Happy This Holiday Season

Whether you’re stuck in holiday traffic or you’re heading over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house this year, happy kids mean a safer ride. This Christmas, give your family the gift of an in-dash, ceiling-mounted, or rear-seat DVD player and bring peace and joy to your car.
