Nor I. Like Sno, I'll be waiting rather than going for the Overland. The X3 is still going well and we have the wife's Rubi for off-road.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

July production for rear DVD?! Ouch.

And yet, my 8-year old would kill me. He was really excited about that for our road trips.

Guess I'm waiting a good long while.

Does it really make sense to have seat mounted video? It seems to me, that with good portable players or tablets the kids could get more use out of them. If you are a multi car family they can go in any car.

I guess I'm really asking what the advantage is.

You or your wife can control it from Nav screen while on long trips. Not an issue to use tablets if you have older children, BUT for those with kids in the 2-5 range many of them might not be able to figure their way around the tablets for movies and you would be leaning back trying to help frequently. JMO based on having a 6, 3 and 1 yr old.

Can't argue with that.

Guess you'll have to wait.

I won't argue since barho's definitely got his bases covered on kids, but I'll throw in my two cents. My 13 month old (hitting normal development milestones) already knows how to lock and unlock my ipad, and interact with her on-screen apps. Plus, movies are a 2 hr "set-it-and-forget-it."

You can get 2-3 tablets for the price of the in-seat video screens, and they're a hell of a lot easier to bring on board an airplane than those beautiful jeep seats.

But the Jeep seats will be much more comfortable than the airline coach seats

Pretty much the integration. I had an aftermarket overhead on a previous vehicle. Made trips fantastic, but I always wished it was integrated with the rest of the vehicle.

I considered an iPad but with no optical drive that's out. I buy all my music digital but I don't think high def digital movies are quite there yet. And I'm not a big fan of making my kid hold a portable player, and the mounted ones look so cheap. I like the ability to control everything, and I'm hoping that they'll be some software integration eventually that would allow for streaming Netflix from my iPhone into the rear monitors or possibly even native integration if the whole wifi hotspot thing works out.

That's all pure speculation, but I'm a tech geek and having everything wired together and communicating is a good thing in my book. As I will be keeping this vehicle at least 5 years, I don't want to skip a desired feature just because I'm impatient.

True. My 3 yr old already knows his way around his Ipod pretty well . Still, for long trips, I like the integration and even though he is ok with the Ipod, he still flips out when something doesn't go his way right away Now for the 1 yr old, it would be much easier to keep her entertained with a vehicle system, that is for sure. I think in another 10 years I will completely forgo any vehicle system, and purcahse whatever new handheld tablet (or whatever is out at that point) for the kids.

I run a hotspot off my phone and the kids watch netflix on their (my) ipad and their ipods.
