im pretty sure its linked in with both the ebrake enabled and the gps...so its not as easy as just bypassing the ebrake as with many other cars.

i wouldnt say it is gay ass since most drivers would prolly crash their cars if video was playing while driving (and most are too dumb to not do this if they know they cant manage it) but yeah, it would be cool to have a workaround this so people can slap in a movie while they are waiting in traffic or just listen and semi watch a movie while they are driving.

NOT at all! Watching a movie in traffic is horrible!! I used to do it but all the stop and go almost caused me to rear end some people!

Yeah, somehow I didn't figure that would be a good idea. :) :)

I have to agree with the people who are saying it's a bad idea. Yeah, the idea of having a movie running while you drive sounds cool, but after having an audio-video setup in my A4 for the last 4 years, I can tell you that nothing good can come from playing a movie while driving. You can't really pay that close attention to the movie, and it's really risky because you're not paying enough attention to the road.

Can you imagine a soccer mom on her cell phone in stop and go traffic AND watching a movie!? The thought scares the sh!t out of me.

i thought it was the thing to have monitors in your headrests and have a porn blasting while you're stuck in traffic, no?


wino, i'm not sure it would be that linked into the car would it? into gps, sensor on the ebrake and tied into the ecu? wow, this car could become the alltime ecu nazi car if it's that tough to defeat little things like this.

I think people have found a work around for the 440H and maybe for the GS system.

Seems there was a recent case of a guy playing porn movies and people in other cars could see it and he got arrested. :)

Its cool but dangerous.
Im about to install screens in my car but only in the back for my sister. If I install a screen in the front ill end up in a bad accident one day.

actually all new IS will play video as long as the car is parked with the e-brake up ;)
Is this true? I thought only the ML system had the ability to play DVD's.

For now, yes. The system is similar to the GS. You need to have the parking brake on and not be moving. It will lock you out if the gps sees that you are going anywhere (can't even change your destination mid-trip). And you will need ML to play dvds, because it is the only way to get a DVD changer as opposed to a CD changer. This has been bypassed for the GS (don't ask me how) so it should for the IS as well in time.

can you operate or make selection for the nav while driving or do you need to park the car as well?
