Good points:
Great picture and great design.
Bad points:
Only bad point I can find is that the battery isn't removable. Well it probably is but you'd have to take the case apart . . .

Phil, Basingstoke Just what you need

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Battery life if good at over 3hours. The picture quality is not superb but for occational use in the car does the job well. The sound is easily loud enough to hear even when driving on the worst of road.
Bad points:
The car holder is not very good for young children as it is very close to them in the car seat and so gets kicked often. It also bounces quite a lot.
