I am curious as to how many have by-passed their parking brake? in order for the navi to play DVD's? would be nice if you have young children so that they can occupy themselves while you focus on the driving. ...Thinking it should be as easy as doing it on an after-market unit. Please chime in if you have done this or know how to do it.
Yeah very true. That's the possible positive of installing a switch. You might (but probably won't) be able to show the cop that the handbrake function works and he might've seen the gps moving or something... but if he or she already saw the video you're probably toastjust be careful...cop sees moving pics or video while you are driving and it's game over.
Yeah I'm pretty sure you're out of luck with that. At least as far as I know.Ya I just really wish I was able to even link videos while I'm parked from my iPhone it play on it. The sound will play through the car but no dice in the image coming up on the nav screen. Any thoughts still or am I correct in thinking that it's just not in the cards with the stock nav?
Thank you for the reply I appreciate it. And not a problem about the delay as I have put the STi in hibernation for the winter, only pull it out once a week to run it for about 10 minutes to keep things lubed up. ...I will try disconnecting that wire and grounding it when I have some extra time over the Christmas Holydays, let me know how it worked for you and if there is anything else that I should know about, thanks again.Such a late reply, so sorry about that. Anyways...you can just disconnect the wire that is currently attached to your handbrake (connected to the little button thing the handbrake pushes down)and ground it to some metal on the car. This should work.
There are little EE projects you can do to insert a switch to turn it from legal to illegal, but if you just always want it available, follow what I said above. I'm about to do it within the next week. Would a write-up be appreciated?
Idk....we live in Houston, I've seen cops ignore a lady putting on makeup, swaying back and forth with a baby in the back seat.just be careful...cop sees moving pics or video while you are driving and it's game over.
I guess it just depends on what kind of day they're having haha :busted:Idk....we live in Houston, I've seen cops ignore a lady putting on makeup, swaying back and forth with a baby in the back seat.
My bad! I didn't update with my progress. Yeah I got it to work, but the pioneer head units make it a little bit harder than just grounding the handbrake wire. Regardless, it is super easy. I'll try to explain it from what I remember.i wish someone could up with a definite answer on whether we can run playback while driving.....
ive searched high and low for answer....
