When we trave with the kids we use a dvd player in the car too. We have one of the portable ones with 2 screens. The second screen can be used with a video game console a thte same time the other one is watching a dvd. It works great for my monsters. At times DH had the extra screen up front and was playing games.

We also have a PSP and Gameboy. They are invalueble car distractions for energetic kids. I don't know how I grew up without them!

Also a GPS is great. We did not really use it to find our way around, but to tell us exactly how far we were from our next stop. THe one we used also had nifty features like telling us where the next gas station was and where the neares wal-mart is. It was a great help. Especially for DH who is navigationally challenged. IT also helps give my DD a time definitve answer to "when are we gonna get there?"

Oh, one more thing....fast food places with playplaces are the best. We did not make the kids eat when we stopped. We let them run and play for a good 30 minutes, then they ate when we got back in the car. It really helped keep them settled. I have a very hyper DS. We could not have traveled without doing this.
