    2003 STS Unlock Nav while car in motion? How to?

    Hi,
    My wife would like to be able to enter our destination while I am driving and she is in the passenger seat. Is there a way/code/procedure to do this?

    Thank you.

    Yes! There's a secret unlock method for 02-05 Cadillac Nav units. If you hit the ROUTE button, there's a "hidden" in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Press & hold the corner for a few seconds and you'll see a diagnostic screen. My memory is a bit fuzzy as it's been awhile since I've done this, but one of the button allows you to enter a diagnostic code. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking the code is 1753. Once you do this the full "ROUTE" ability will be active, even in drive, and you'll be able to play a regular DVD while in Drive as well.

    Yes, that works for DVD playback but I can't get the nav to go when driving. Anyone know the right code for the nav????

    Seems I was getting my "hidden" techniques mixed up! That code is only for playing DVDs. Once in the DENO diagnostics screen (the one with a bunch of buttons) hit the RUN button and then there's some sort of OK button directly under the clock (you can barely see just the bottom of the button). With careful aim you should be able to press it instead of the clock. This should allow Navigation to work even at speed but only for the duration of this ignition cycle (it will reset once key is turned off)
