Keeping Them Occupied

If you're looking for loads of entertainment and communications features, you've come to the right van. Chrysler has moved beyond the basic DVD entertainment system by offering streaming entertainment options and mobile connectivity.

A two-screen backseat system with two wireless headphones is optional, and each screen can show a different source simultaneously. One (but only one) of those sources can be TV shows streamed from the optional Sirius Backseat TV system. As of publication, Backseat TV offers three children's channels: Disney, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network Mobile. A one-year subscription is included, but after that it costs $6.99 per month on top of a satellite radio subscription.

There's also the optional UConnect Web system, which provides secure, high-speed wireless internet access in the Town & Country. The cellular-based system is a dealer-installed option that costs $499 plus installation, and the monthly service fee is $29. As one editor noted, though, you can get the same functionality for a laptop by purchasing a USB or PC card from your cell phone provider that won't limit your mobile web-surfing to the car.
