I don't mind a way to mount a tablet though I feel like most aftermarket ones I have seen add more bulk to the back of the headrest that inevitably my kids would knock off.I would prefer a way to put an iPad/android tablet on the headrest. Versus dedicated infotainment system. They tend to be more expensive and outdated faster.
It would be a nice option if it wasn’t a bunch of money. I think they would have be in the headrest as the majority of the roof is glass.I don't mind a way to mount a tablet though I feel like most aftermarket ones I have seen add more bulk to the back of the headrest that inevitably my kids would knock off.
A simple flip down LCD would suffice for me as it would allow for all passengers to view it vs the individual headset units.
I haven't seen the hook and charging ports, do you have a good photo of that? That might be all I need!Even airlines are moving to "bring your own screen", and phones/tablets are excellent media devices.
I think that was the intent with the "hook" & charging ports on the back of the front seats, and I'm curious to see if they come up with another creative idea to hold/mount devices. If not, there are already some aftermarket options.
I agree 100% with you. The chances of someone actually hitting the hook is slim, but it is still there and why leave yourself vulnerable to lawsuits if you can come up with a safer way of doing the same thing. So maybe package the USBs in the armrest in the back seat or maybe in the B or C pillar similar to the Chrysler T&C/Pacifica.The way I've seen seat-belt-restrained rear seat dummies move in crash tests makes me doubt whether the head or face would hit these ports in a collision. They are mounted pretty high, and upper bodies seem to bend downward in an arc rotating from the seat belt line. Shoulder belts would further limit the possibility of a face colliding with these ports.
Exactly.But I guess they must also consider what happens for someone, admittedly stupidly, not wearing a belt.
