    Navigation while driving

    I have a 2006 Escalade with factory navigation. Is there a way to modify the system to be able to use the nav while driving? Have to stop to change address now and it's a pain!!

    Re: Navigation while driving

    Yes, Its simple
    You have to cut a small wire (green/white) connected to the back of the radio
    This is the "Vehicle in Motion" signal to the radio.
    You remove the radio, clip the wire from the plug, and put the radio back in.
    That's all.
    It took a total of 10 minutes for me to do from start to finish.

    Did this really work? Is it as simple as that? Have you actually done this and it worked with no problems? Thanks...

    Done it. Worked like a champ.
    I can enter addresses at 60MPH
    Clip the wire in the RED box shown below

    Same procedure for the 04?
    Also going to run video on the Nav screen. I've read the posts on how. Do you know if I can pull the video signal from the RSE however.

    Yes, it will be the same wire and pin on the 04. I just checked it for the 04, and it is the same as my 05.

    Don't know about the video signal from the RSE.

    None. Everything still works as designed, except you dont have to stop to enter destinations.
    All touch screen button work when the truck is moving.

    I was glad to have helped.
    These forums are a wealth of info. This thread just adds to it.
    Please don't wreck your Escalades trying to put in addresses while u drive.

    I just set up the nav tv like in the link posted and am using the video from my rse. It was actually quite easy to set up. All you need to do is tap into the dark blue wire coming out of the dvd player. Attach that to the positive wire in an rca cable, and connect the negative to the dvd player chasis. then just run it up to the nav tool.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    That info regarding the RSE is very helpful. I was curious about audio controls and functionality. So when the movie starts it just show up on the screen? What about those "mute" functions which are displayed. And what happens when you change the source. Does the video automatically disappear??
    I can totally pull this off. GREAT INFO.
