Cygnett CarGo

If you are like me and road trips with your kids is a nightmare or is like a ticking time bomb waiting for one to set it off and you have access to an iPad then maybe you need to look at Cynett’s CarGoholder for your iPad, I recently tried this over the New Year when we took a trip up to Guilderton here in Western Australia, it is about an hour a half from home so took the opportunity to try the CarGo for my 4 year old, loaded up the iPad with Cars 2 and hit the road.

The trip was great the youngest and most volatile of my three kids was entertained thanks to the CarGo and Jaybird Sportsband 2 Bluetooth headset , he was in heaven.  My Wife was really thankful.

Here is some info from Cygnett’s website 

FEATURES & SPECS
  • Connect easily to charger, or plug in earphones. The CarGo snaps on or off your headrest’s metal brackets in seconds
  • Watch movies, play games, listen to music on the road completely hands-free
  • Easy-to-use, the CarGo bracket snaps on & off a car’s headrest in seconds
  • Functional design allows for use with iPads that have cases just as easily as those that don’t
  • Precisely engineered fingers grip your iPad affording extra stability for more stable viewing
  • Easy access to all ports & controllers, as well as the earphone port for use with headphones
  • Perfect for keeping kids entertained on long drives
  • 2 year manufacturer’s warranty

iPad car mount bracket with 360-degree rotation
Transform your back seat into a digital entertainment hub with Cygnett’s iPad car mount bracket, the CarGo. Perfect for keeping backseat passengers busy (while allowing the driver to concentrate on the road), CarGo provides a safe and stable place for your iPad.
The 360-degree rotation and tilt feature allows the iPad screen to be angled vertically or horizontally for perfect glare free viewing by one or more back-seat passengers.

THE PHOTO’S

I Tested CarGo with my Wife’s iPad which had an OtterBox Defender case.

Finally figured out how to connect it to the Drivers head rest, was pretty stable.

The CarGo fitted ok with the Case on, but with out the case (not likely with a four year old) would have fitted even better.
IMAG0311
The viewing angle was dead on, perfect and as he uses a booster seat he was at the right height.

THE OUT COME

The only thing I would do differently I would have used no case, the weight of the case did bend the joint connection I was able to bend it back so no real issue. My four year old loved the CarGo, we would recommend it to anyone to stave off world war III on your next holiday road trip.
