If a child has outgrown the GN, is the Turbobooster worth it? Or will they pretty much be outgrown from that, too?

What are good boosters for BIG kids that are on the cheaper side?

The Pronto is super tall. I fit in it in the highest position. It is just a smidge shorter than the FR 80 in HBB mode

It is really tall, but I found it torqued really easily in that upper position. It's not terribly sturdy. I'd probably go Turbo, unless they could stretch their budget to a Monterey or Parkway. How old is the child?

Turbo won't fit a kid over the top slots of the Nauti in hb mode long. If his torso is 19-19.5” and the turbo's top height is about 19”...

If there are headrests and he's outgrown the Nauti (by height?), I'd probably just go with a backless booster. I don't think there are many taller boosters under $50.

Definitely not the Turbo -- it's about the same height as the Nauti and narrower on the inside.

I just got a Safety 1st Boost Air and it's wicked tall... Very similar to the Pronto, which I don't dislike. :) The Pronto is $40 which is why they're suggesting it. :)

My 6 year old slumps horribly if she falls asleep in a backless, so I can see needing a back for a while.
