Re: New owner - 2015 JGC Overland V8!

Here's the other benefit to using an iPad/tablet: Already own one? Now you can buy yourself a brand new one and "donate" your old/outdated one to the kids. What a great dad you are! And oh, look at this, a brand new iPad Air 2 for dad! And look honey, I still saved money!

Re: New owner - 2015 JGC Overland V8!

Jim,
You bring up great points...kinda wished i'd read them before I ordered. I do have a 6 and 7 year old...thought it was cleaner. I really don't care too much about the center arm rest console as I don't store much in the car. I did consider the iPad set-up and think it would have been great. I probably could still connect one to the system and use the installed monitors.

Re: New owner - 2015 JGC Overland V8!

Yes, I believe you still can using the setup I considered. Apple makes an HDMI dongle for the iPad/iPhone. The only issue is I think they put in some restrictions on what you can send as Video-Out. Both screens have their own separate HDMI inputs so you can watch separate programming on each simultaneously. I believe you can also mirror one input to the other 2 (3 screens if not moving).

2 years before facing forward? dang I woulda had a coronary if I waited that long. Simply being able to lock eyes saved many tantrums.

First time parent nerves I guess - NHTSA and AAP both recommend rear facing until 2 or the max height/weight of the rear facing seat so I'm going to try and hold out as long as possible.
