You’re shopping for headrest DVD players to entertain your kids in the back seat during your next family vacation and you come across a comment to check if your vehicle has Active Headrest technology and you ask yourself, what heck is that?
Active headrest technology is simply a technology designed to adjust the angel of your headrest pillow during the course of an accident. It’s a relatively new technology introduced in newer vehicles and there are slightly different ways the technology is built into headrests depending on the vehicle make and model. Brandon at OnFair does a good job giving a simple explanation here.
If your vehicle does have Active Headrest technology, don’t worry. Autotain has introduced 2 very nice headrest DVD players specifically designed to accommodate vehicles with this technology. The first model is the Autotain Activate model. It’s a 9 inch touch screen DVD player that attaches to the metal posts on your existing headrests to keep the Active Headrest features intact. This model also includes a built-in battery you won’t find on other models making it portable outside of the vehicle and a very nice feature.
The second model from Autotain is the Desire model. A very nice looking 10” active headrest DVD player with a responsive touch screen and a higher resolution than other models offering a brighter and crisp image for your viewing pleasure.
The nice part of both models is even if your vehicle does not have Active Headrest technology you can install these same models in your vehicle. The clamp on bracket design offers a quick and easy installation with the turn of a few screws and you’re on your way.
Active headrest technology or not, take a look at the Autotain clamp on headrest DVD players. We hope this helps shed additional light on the latest trends in car headrest DVD player technology.
Family drives made fun!
