    Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    Well i can point you in the right direction as i am a professional car audio installer. On front seat dvd packages by law wea re required to ground the dvd to a parking brake so that when the parking brake is engaged you can watch the dvd player but when you take it off it will only dispaly a screen saver or w/e your dvd shows. Now all we do if we wanted to bypass it is to ground that wire anywhere and viola you can watch whole driving. If i had a wire schematic for the dvd/nav system i could probably pinpoint GMs wire they use to ground out. My guess would probably be like on the nuetral start safety switch or transmission because thats most likely where your sensor is to send the out of park signal.

    In Las Vegas i can install this for you....otherwise you can do it yourself...it is about a 2 hour job that is fairly easy for a person who has installed a stereo before...
    How do we contact you? I am interested in this as I have a 03 escalade with a 05 touchscreen nav and I know that you can open it up and solder some wires in and make it work do you know how to do this?

    Re: DVD Nav Override?

    Just got a 2006 STS with push button start. Has anyone figured out a way to bypass the motion sensor so the navi screen and the bluetooth phone screen will work when in motion???

    HELP! It is so annoying.

    Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    I am more concerned about using the navigation system and the bluetooth phone system while the vehicle is in motion. Perhaps whatever you are talking about will also do this??

    Please let me know if it can, and if it has been tried on a 2006 STS-V8. If you tell me who has it, perhaps I can inquire of them dirtectly.

    Thank you,

    Harvey

    Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    HMorse,

    I have an 06 STS as well and am feeling the same frusterations. I have tried to get someone at the dealer to give me the secret override, but they insist there is not one. They fall back to use the voicetags to dial the bluetooth phone while in motion.

    Also for nav they claim you can do most anything with voice commands.

    I have found that the voice activation works about 1/2 the time, the other 1/2 you get lots of fun suprises....There has to be an override somewhere to allow you to use the systems while in motion!

    I agree, the voice system does not work well at all. Onstar's phone voice system seems to work far better, but their cost per minute is way out of whack.

    Wink Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    I went to a place that sells wheels and installs all kinds of car stuff including dvd players and they told me that for $625.00 they could do what they call a navigation conversion and that it would then play dvd movies so I hope thi helps you guys? I think the best idea is putting one in the visor on the passengers side and one in the back of each head rest!

    Exclamation Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    I still don't have a fix either, however this mayh be a clue for the more inclined. We install radars in policed cars. The newer units plug into the harness for the computer and this senses the motion of the vehicle thru the speedo. This in turn switches the radar unit from stationary to moving mode. I beleive this is the same thing for the cadillac. As with my STS, I can watch movies and use the phone in drive but as soon as I start to move, the system switches over, when you stop it comes back.

    perhaps another location for you hackers to look for.......

    Maybe I spoke too soon. While I can have the DVD playing while I drive, now the voice commands don't work.
