Special needs issue

CPS instructor

I am a CPS Tech Instructor working in a hospital. I like many features of the app, but I have not been able to access any of the special needs websites via the links on the app. The links behave differently at different times. Sometimes the link for one manufacturer takes to me to website of another manufacturer. Sometimes I get a 404 message. Lately I have gotten an odd message and have ended up at a website based in Germany.
Since special needs is what I do most, this is a big problem for me.

While you are fixing that bug, it would also be nice if the special needs button triggered a list of appropriate car seats for the child's height and weight like it does for convential seats, rather than just generating a list of the special needs manufacturers. Many thanks!

Good App....but


This is a good app and a good tool for not only the consumer but also the Child Passenger Safety Technician to get information about a seat. Having a search function using model number and/or name would be very helpful to all.

Great resource!


From someone who is CPS certified, I especially like the product guide as well as access to the current recall list at your fingertips!
