    Re: I Found Part Of Diag Screen N Navigation

    I found this via Google when I first bought my CTS-V. It's definitely useful, except if you want to stop or your wife decides to hit some button, then you're kinda screwed. Anyone make some sort of go around box or something so that you can control it while you're driving as well?

    I did, lol. It leads to this thread.

    from Clinton

    Everybody, just in, DVD hack, now playing DVD while car is in motion!! I am so psyched!! I wanted everyone to know that I am a true Contributor to the CTS-V Community!! My brother and I where out in the car determined to find a solution. It took us about ten minutes to figure out with no wiring changes! You have to image the look on each other faces when we know we got it to work. When I released the parking break and the screen stayed on we were driving!! I also want to give crate to eyeforthectsvguy! He lead me in the right direction.
    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...ad.php?t=12591

    Here are the steps to be driving, riding, and watching (Be safe, if you are diving, do not watch screen!!)
    # Step 1 Put in DVD.
    # Step 2 Play DVD (Do not leave it at the front menu, if you do not start the DVD you will not be able to start it after you begin to drive.)
    # Step 3While playing - Hit the second from the bottom buttons on the right hand side of the DVD screen and then press the forward Seek Button. (You will see a little flicker)
    NOTE: If you see a differnt screen with the words "cold reboot" on it, press the same button combination AGAIN and it should go back to the DVD...

    # Step 4 Now disable the parking break and make sure that the DVD stays on.
    # Step 5 Enjoy

    If you did everything correct you will notice that all the features are disabled. If you are at the main menu of the dvd you will not be able to select play movie or any features.

    If you would like to stop the dvd, you must hit the top right button first. Then it will bring up the safety lock if you are in motion or parking break off.

    Other notes:
    I got DVD-R to play fine in mine, but the +R are having some problems.

    Well technically 2008...but everyone yells at you to search and then tells you not to use the thread that you find when you search.

    People thought bringing back this thread 14 months ago was "bringing back an old thread" i'd say this definitely qualifies

    I dont think its that big of a deal, think of the trouble most cars have to go through to allow you to watch and drive. Splice this wire, ground that wire, add a switch, etc... I guess it's a trade off, easy to turn on, not so easy to turn off. My only concern would be getting pulled over and not being able to turn off a movie, although just turn the car off and you're good. I was downtown once and a bike cop pulled up next to me at a light, i had 2 options, lean forward and try to cover up the movie or turn off the car!

    You can just press the play button to stop the image from being transmitted to the screen. The audio from the movie will still continue, but no movie will be displayed. At that point, you regain full control of the system and you can press the play button again to pause it (or press radio or CD to switch to a different source).
