Philips Portable connected device PV9002I 23cm/ 9" LCD For iPod, iPhone & iPad
Was initially satisified
I purchased this about 9 months ago and have been very happy with them until I upgraded to the iPhone 5. Now this unit is a big paper weight until Phillips gets on the ball and creates a cord that works with the iPhone 5.

Terrible product-DO NOT BUY!
VERY poorly designed product. The cords pl;ug into the bottom of the screen so when we go over the slightest bump, they fall out (they don't snap or click in). So disappointed! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

I was excited when I purchased these last summer for those long trips and for driving around town (when a friend lives 40 mins away). lots of chords. After a year, the chords don't work on one of the TVs. I tried replacing but its a NO GO. I have the iPhone 4 so it works. I'm about to buy the iPhone5 so i'm wondering if it will still work based on the reviews below. In regards to the headphone jack, yep, no slot. I get what the reader says below about buying a splitter, blah blah blah, but who wants to add more wires. It's bad enough all the wires now. that's just another headache. Why wouldn't they build this already in???? The sound is good for the little ones but if an adult was trying to listen to the video in the 3rd row, it's impossible. To be honest I don't think my kids can really hear it themselves. I think they are just happy to see something on a screen. they are 4 and 5. I'll have to make sure my next car has this already installed

Do not buy.
This product does not support the iPhone 5 or anything with the lightning connector. The cords that plug into the display no longer work and you have to get them in "just right" for anything to play back. Very disappointed after only a year.

This was not very well thought out produce
Very disappointed with this product. Very limited product design with kids in mind or flexibility. This product was designed to survive one year at max. Cords connection are not universal, very specific to this product, therefore if there is wear and tear no way to replace. Cords are not designed to handle the stress of a kid grabbing and pulling, nor are the connectors built to be put back together over and over. They promote a good volume level, however there have been movies that I could barely hear with volume knob at max. The cords are only designed to reach first row seats, no options to buy cord extenders since cord connections are not universal.

I purchased two of these units. Very dissatisfied with them. Neither of them charged my 5th generation Ipod classic. The box says it will. No parts available (no longr offering replacement cords for charging). I think Phillips should contact customers for better design input. I wish I'd never purchased. I have been a loyal Phillips customer for many years. Have not been able to get any satisfaction.

This was such a great buy for me. Have 3 kids so on long trips they are lifesavers. I would of have it all 5 stars but now that my wife and I have upgrade to iphone 5 we can't use it as we use to. Luckily I still had an old iphone around that's on it's last legs or we just couldn't use them anymore. Hopefully Phillips come out with a solution soon.

Love this product
We got this to replace our old duel screen DVD player, I was tired of changing movies on long trips or the kids leaving them all over the floor. With this product we could control everything from the front and finally use our digital copies of movies. There is a headphone cable that splits in the bag, it connects directly to the apple product. We also bought an additional y connector to connect to one of the ends because we have 3 kids that way they can all wear headphones. So far its works with the newer Classic, touch (4th gen) and the pad (3rd gen) for us, only downside is it wouldn't charge the classic. I just hope that Philips can make an adapter for the newer 8 pin products to support video.
