    Recaro Vivo and Vivo Light?

    ok whats the differnce in these two seats are the belt guides any higher then the Compass B510?
    It looks like from the pics that it sits on a base or rails of some sort and it may be another one to consider.
    does any child mind the wings though those seem to be really big and not let the child see out the window

    Re: Recaro Vivo and Vivo Light?

    The difference between the Vivo and Vivo Lite is the cover material. I measured the belt guides in the tallest setting at 21 inches, I am not sure how tall the Compass is. Neither of my kids mind the head wings, they sleep better in them.

    Edited to add: This is the best picture I have of what the base of the Vivo looks like, I am not sure what your asking about that.

    ok thanks it has the rail thing see what sits on the car seat looks like rails its not flat accross. This gives me another option for a booster for my car as long as the measurment is no greater then 10.5 inches accross the bottom.
