Chrysler Pacifica Fam Cam
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and several other official public health agencies highly encourage parents to place their little ones in a rear-facing child seat from the time they’re born until 4 years of age. What this means is that parents sitting in the front seats won’t be able to properly monitor their kids, requiring a mirror that they can see from the rearview mirror of the car. For parents who often shovel their child’s rear-facing seat between multiple vehicles throughout the week, this can especially be a pain after a while…unless they have the Chrysler Pacifica’s “Fam Cam.”
Lurking between the Pacifica’s second and third row is a sleek black disk in the ceiling that involves cameras that show video images of the back seat rows. There are also daylight color and nighttime infrared camera views on top of this. One can expand one of the second-row seats for an improved view. There are several options that make it as though you’re sitting right next to your tinny tot, and definitely much more convenient than looking at a mirror.
Essentially, it’s hard to see a child at night using a rearview mirror. While turning the light from overhead can help, it might also risk waking up the little critter and causing an undesirable crying fit. Certain backseat positions of the car may also mean that the forward-facing mirror sits below the line of sight of the rearview mirror. In other words, you’ll have to decide between seeing your child or seeing what’s happening behind the car, another pro of the Fam Cam.
Here’s another advantage. It’s usually quite challenging, almost impossible to fix both a forward-facing mirror and a tablet holder simultaneously. One could theoretically get around this by connecting a mirror to the head restraint of the middle seating position, but that’s assuming one isn’t driving a vehicle with captain’s chairs. The Fam Cam is clearly the better option.
Additional Fun Features
The Chrysler Pacifica is known for its famous Uconnect infotainment system, with its Uconnect 5 being its most advanced yet. It fuses features such as Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, HD Radio and satellite radio, and over-the-air (OTA) software updates.
This available entertainment system allows rear-seat passengers to also get in the action. It involves two 10.1-inch touchscreens, wireless streaming, wireless headphones, Amazon Fire TV for Auto, as well as built-in video games.
This optional drive system is nearly essential for those residing in cold-weather states or any driver that simply desires augmented traction.
Stow’ n Go Seats
Likely one of the most sought-after elements of a minivan, and for good reason. This inventive standard feature enables one to fold the second-row seats into the floor to allow for a flat, functional cargo space.
