Adding Video to Your Car

Jul 22, 2008
Placing a mobile video system in one's car is no longer exclusively for car enthusiast, high rollers and rappers. Today, you are bound to see suburbanites and families with video systems built into their vehicles. They are a great way to keep children and adults entertained while on the road, especially on long trips. Sometimes it is difficult to find a radio station or music that everyone likes. It's a little easier to find a great movie that's good for the entire family. Mobile video is an affordable addition to any vehicle and instantly ups the entertainment value.

There are some minivans and SUVs that come with built in video systems. For those that do not, it's very easy to have them installed them in one's car, truck or van. There are many reasons to get a video system installed in one's car or to purchase a vehicle that already has one installed. We will discuss some of those reasons below.

The first reason one is simply for entertainment value. The second reason is to show off a little bit, and the third reason is that the video systems not only show videos, but also can act as GPS navigational systems.

A video which shows movies can instantly make long trips more bearable. This is especially true if one has young kids who grow restless and bored pretty easy. Instead of them fighting with each other to entertain themselves, they can watch a movie. This gives a little bit of peace and quiet to Mom and Dad. Individuals can watch all types of movies and they can cater them to whoever's in the car. This may mean of cartoons for while, kiddy movies and even those of a more grown-up variety. Another option is to use the video system to play video games. This can keep teenagers busy and engaged for hours.

Having a video system installed in your car can also help you show off a little bit. Dash receivers and receivers in car seats are very impressive and are sure to get you a lot of positive strokes.

For individuals who do a lot of driving or who get lost often and/or easily, video systems can also act as GPS systems. They can tell you exactly how to get to a particular place. You won't get lost and you won't waste time driving around, which wastes gas. With gas prices being so expensive, any methods that can improve fuel efficiency are a big deal.

When setting up a video system, you will need three primary things. They include something for audio. This could include wireless headphones, if you don't want to force everyone in the car to listen to the movie. You will also need a monitor and you will some type of media player. This can be either a VCR or DVD. You will be able to buy kits that have all these components or you can just hand over the duties to an auto shop that will allow you to pick out a video system and then install it.
