    I found the Compass True Fit at Goores.com!

    I was browsing the car seats just for fun and they have the Compass True fit on their site already! It looks like it's still not quite available, or maybe they are just out of stock right now, but you can order them and it says it will ship as soon as it's in!
    They are only $179! I cant wait til one of us gets one and can give us a review!

    Cool! Do we know the height of the top slots yet?

    Also, who writes the descriptions?...
    "Built-in Lock Offs - Adds an extra level of security when properly installed. Provides a safety catch if your seat belts fail in an accident. Also helps keep your car seat installed nice and tight. "

    Yea, riiiighttt...an accident that causes the seatbelt to fail, but the little lock-offs hold tight.

    I copied the lock off part to paste here and pick apart... I guess I got beat. I hate when people say things like that...
    I'm glad you're a safe driver. I'm eating cereal and applying mascara using my rear view mirror while playing bejeweled on my iPhone. And I'm driving right behind you. 
    You're only as safe as the most dangerous driver on the road. Buckle accordingly.

    Re: I found the Compass True Fit at Goores.com!

    Question:

    Does anybody know if you CAN keep the top part on for the extra height for rear-facing? Or is it only supposed to be used for ff'ing?

    And what is the rf'ing weight limit?

    The top part that can be removed for rearfacing can only be removed until the child weighs 22lbs, then it *must* be used with the seat. Since the seat goes to 30 (35? - can't remember and too lazy to look it up )lbs rearfacing, the top part can be used with the seat when rearfacing.

    Amazon.com also has it, and shows December 10th as the ship date.

    Ok, does anyone happen to know the seat-to-top-of-shell measurement?

    I heard the base is lower than the Marathon but higher than the Radian.

    The Radian weighs 21 lbs., the Marathon weighs 18 lbs. so if this weighs 24 lbs, that is one heavy carseat!

    Original post with info about the Trufit...
    http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.php?t=24587

    Scroll down to the bottom... there's pictures of the Tru Fit installed in a vehicle without the top piece...
    http://gooresblog.blogspot.com/search/label/Car%20Seats

    I'm still trying to find the other link... but it shows pictures of the Tru Fit with no cover... it looks fantastic, although I wish it could tether RFing as well.

    Nothing I've found says, but IF the top slot is 18 inches, if you sort of eyeball it and estimate upwards, it seems like around 25 inches?

    also does it tether forward facing and why would it not tether the swedish way when rear facing?

    My understanding is that the "headrest" is NOT adjustable, it is REMOVABLE, but when it is on, it is on, it does not move, and it does not have any slots in it. The report from the show said that the slots went from 10 inches to 18 inches, but that has not been confirmed by anyone IRL that I know of?????
    It tethers forward facing, and i suppose there is nothing *physically* preventing Swedish RF tethering, but apparently, Compass not only does NOT ALLOW RF tethering, but is quite adamantly AGAINST Rf tethering. This was discussed in the other thread, but I can't get search to work for me to find it for you right now.......*sigh*
