Thanks, I just spoked to the dealer and he informed me that RES is the EX with leather. WE are definitely interested in the EX but wasn't leaning towards leather. I wanted the iVES cause of my 2 kids and the long trips we take. Also, on H and A accessories.com if you buy the iVES, they throw in playstation 2 for free. Anyone's advice on this??
A playstation 2 (or any other video game system) can be hooked up very easily to the factory RES DVD system, it's actually designed to accomidate that. There are RCA hookups located under a flip up door in the third sear area, and just below that there is a 12 volt outlet (which you would need to power the video game via a DC/AC converter which you can get at Walmart for about $25).
With many other systems (including IVES?) I believe you could be stringing various cables from the front of the van to the back. It is much cleaner with the factory RES system.
FWIW, they have portable VCRs that run directly off of the 12 volt hookup if you are dead-set on having VHS cabability. Just consider, DVDs will survive being inside of a vehicle much better than VHS tapes do, especially in the summertime.
