playstations in cars?? anygood or not?

Anyone had any experience with PS2 in cars.
Do they jump or skip at all?
What sort of inverter (if any, or is there a mod) did u use?
Is the DVD and sound quality as good as a 12volt DVD only player?

The guys I know that have put Playstations in their cars all used 12 -> 240V inverters.

Can't say about the skipping but they successfully played games on long haul trips

Cheaper to look at the scenery!

I guess if you go over a hard enough bump it would.

Don't know anyone who has one you can try? I would think the skip performance would be somewhere like one of the early discmans without Shock Protection.

I know of guys who've used them for games while on the road and quite a few games actually just play the soundtrack off the cd just as a normal CD player. They had no problems.

There are a few guys around here that have them in their back seat areas. THey can play on long hauls but in the city when there is a lot of bumps and potholes they are useless and skip all the time.
