4 Benefits of Installing a Car TV DVD Player

Most people think of a car TV DVD player to entertain their kids on road trips. With Disney movies blasting in the back, mom and dad can have a conversation, listen to their own music or podcasts, and avoid the “are we there yet” question 472 times.

But wait…a TV in your car isn’t just for kids. Adults can benefit from this entertainment as well! This type of add-on is an easy install from after-market accessory experts.

If you’re contemplating springing for in-car entertainment, here are 4 reasons that might just make up your mind for you.

1. Entertainment for Long Trips

This is the most obvious benefit of installing a car TV DVD player. Whether you pop in a movie, stream Netflix or Hulu, or have an app allowing you to get live TV in your car, there are plenty of options.

Break up the boredom of a long road trip with some entertainment. If you don’t want to have to listen to it as the driver, have your passengers wear earbuds or headphones and then you can listen to your own music up front!

2. Keeps Kids Entertained

Kids are a huge distraction when driving, especially on long trips. Asking for snacks or drinks, fighting with siblings, or asking you to get a dropped toy, kids take a lot of our attention while on the road.

Some research even suggests that kids are a worse distraction than cell phones! Having entertainment for them in the back seat makes it more likely they will focus on that and stay quiet, resulting in fewer distractions for the driver.

When the driver doesn’t have to take their eyes off the road to break up fights, pick up a dropped item, or hand back snacks and drinks, they can pay more attention to the road.

3. Helps with Navigation

While you should not be watching TV while driving, screens in the front area can help with navigation. If it’s integrated into your car, you can have your GPS directions up on on the screen or project your phone GPS onto the screen.

Having the directions and map on a bigger screen makes it easier to see and you won’t have to take your eyes off the road to try to look at a tiny phone screen to figure out where you’re going.

4. Entertainment for Adults

Sure, you’ll probably use this most often on a long road trip. But, have you ever been stuck at a kids’ sports tournament with hours between games? Or stuck waiting in the parking lot at a baseball game because of a rain delay?

If you have the ability to turn on the tube and zone out, the wait will go by much quicker and be much less boring!
