Isofix Confusion

I am looking into buying a toddler car seat for my 1 year old daughter.
I currently have the familyfix base and the carbriofix seat.
I want to buy the priorifix car seat as it is compatible with seatbelt and isofix installation, but when I looked at the familyfix base it doesnt list the priorifix seat as a compatible seat.
So I looked at the other bases and again none list the priorifix as compatible??
So how does the priorifix seat fit in the car with isofix???

doesn't it have the fixings attached directly ?

So many people get confused over the whole 'base' thing for car seats!

Bases are generally for infant carriers so that you can quickly click the seat in and out of the car and carry the baby around in the seat. There are only a couple of bases that will then take a Group 1 seat. In general the Group 1 seats have the ISOFIX link arms built into the seat itself - why would you want to take a Group 1 seat off a base and lift it out of the car?

LIZS is correct, you just buy the PrioriFix seat and fix it in the car with the ISOFIX arms that are part of the seat. Your FamilyFix base can only be used if you buy the Pearl Group 1 seat, but like I said, a base is pretty pointless on a Group 1 seat anyway.
