What are your thoughts on them. My friend has one and she said she uses it for road trips when it is just highway driving. She said she watches a movie as driving. What are your thoughts? I am getting a dash mout but it will be for the passenger not the driver and in fact will be pointed away from the driver

Hmmm
Ous only works when the vans in park.
Unless its a portable one, from my understanding the built in ones only work when the cars in Park.
Ours also is where our back up camera is (same screen).

We had one in DH's last car, and Expedition. It was great for ME when we were driving. He did not watch the movie, as the driver. Also, the kids said it had a better picture than the one they had in the back seat, so sometimes, they would watch the one in the dash.

1 mom liked this

That's just scary! Also, I believe it's illegal. DH always put the screen down when he saw a cop.

I thought they were illegal to operate while in any other gear than park.
I think they're dangerous and would never have one. We have two portable screens in the back seats.

Like I said I don't think it is bad for the passenger but for the driver I say absolutely no
