Had a lockpick installed today along with headrest DVD players. The lockpick did keep the video playing in the dash while moving which was great. BUT NAVI destination is still locked out while moving as are phone functions. Are these supposed to be unlocked as well?

Oh and I moved the stock front headrests to the back seats. Now all four chairs actually look like captains chairs. Should have come this way from the factory.

Now I can watch 4 different movies at one time or I can watch one movie on four screens or any combination there of.

You have to do the Nav/XM unlock.

As a sidebar, I wonder if this opens up some liability issues if an accident investigation snows that you have been viewing a DVD while driving? As an illegal activity while driving, would it void your insurance?

There have been case reports of ambitious prosecuting attorneys going after people with strong criminal charges when an accident is caused by someone viewing a movie while they're supposed to be driving. You can bet the police will look for any possible cause of an accident. That investigation will include looking into ANY electronic devices within reach of a driver to try to prove negligence. If they find you were texting, surfing the internet, watching a movie, etc, I would bet 10:1 they will prosecute the driver. If an accident resulted in a fatality, I guarantee the driver would end up with a prison sentence.

....insurers have begun seeking ways to avoid shouldering massive liability for inattentive customers.....

It's not a small problem: Nearly 6,000 people died in crashes involving distracted driving (http://www.distraction.gov/stats-and-facts/) in 2008, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That's 16% of all traffic fatalities for that year. In addition, 500,000 were injured in 2008 in accidents involving some form of driver distraction, the U.S. Department of Transportation reports.




It's certainly food for thought for anybody thinking about this kind of mod.

I'd be willing to wager that cell phones have caused exponentially more accidents than a dvd screen playing a movie.

So if your wife wants to watch a movie you throw he in the back seat with 2 other kids? :cookoo: I doubt it. If you had a lockpick she could watch the movie in the front seat while you drive.

this exactly what they said about the center cluster info screens and NAVI when they first came out. PANIC, PANIC, People will be watching the NAVI and not the road.

BLAH! BLAH! BLAH!

I agree the lockpic is no big deal. I had a lockpic on my GMC Denali and now I need to buy one for my Escalade, what kind did you buy coastal tech? Also can any stereo place put it in? or who would be the best place to have them put it in?
Thanks

I agree. On my way to work yesterday, I got behind a woman that was applying makeup and crimping her eyelashes in her rear view mirror while driving. :histeric: I wonder if that's ever caused any accidents?

Perhaps because the ratio of cellphone usage to DVD watching is 10 million to 1? :lol:

ThanksI was having headrest DVD playersput in and decided to have them put in a lockpick at the same time. It's just a plug that splits the stock wiring. Any radio place should be able to put it in, in about 1 1/2 hours. Apparently its the dip switches that have to be set right to unlock everything.

While i was waiting for all that to be installed, I decided to have the windows tinted. The installer was standing around so I put him to work. Went as dark as I could go in Georgia 5% rear and 35% front. It looks awesome from the outside and what a huge difference it makes on the inside.
