I mostly want to just be able to use the dvd player while driving (for passengers), what is the easiest/cheapest way to do this? If I have to override the navigation that is fine too but I dont use the nav anyway (its outdated and my phone is easier)
Im assuming there are more updated navigation discs than what I have in my car as it is missing a major highway (485 in Charlotte, NC). How can I find out what the latest is. I would prefer to burn or buy a burned disc but if members look down on that they do not have to point me how to do this but just let me know what the latest disc is.
Thanks in advance!
If you just want to be able to watch DVD while driving, DIY way is to find the parking brake line and ground it. If you don't want to mess with the factory harness, you can get our kit:
wow... this is awesome!!! i did it and now i can press the "play" button on the screen for dvds while the car is in motion... back then, i had to wait for a red light..... i can make fone calls now too!!! GREAT post great write-up!!!
I tried the wire mod today and got the DVD to work while driving, but when I added the switch, I don't get turn by turn guidance and I still have to do the finger dance to add in a address. Does anyone know what I did wrong? I connected both pink wire (passenger side harness) and purple wire (driver side harness) from the deep inside of the dash (not coming out from the screen) to the switch. IS that correct or was I suppose to connect the it to the navi side. Thank you in advance.
I tried doing "Option 3 - Wire modification for navigation input while in motion" today but I couldn't seem to make it work. I cut the purple wire on the farthest left and the white with silver dots and put a switch in between but nav would still not let me input addresses while driving. It would let me dial numbers on the bluetooth though. Could it be that my switch doesn't work? But, I even tried bridging the purple and white wire to see if that would work (even if only for a few minutes) but it didn't either. I'm a bit confused as to what it could be.
I grounded the yellow wire so at least the DVD works now
