    I have a 2003 CTS with Navi. It appears there are 2 different versions of the navigation. The first is CD and the second is DVD. Based on your production date would determine which one you got. 2003 is the first yr for production. The earlier ones got the CD and the later got the DVD. Would the Cd version play DVDs?

    They say that if you have a gray dash with several nav discs then you can't play DVD's? Anyone know if this is the case?

    Care to share?

    For the 2004 and 2005 CTS and CTS-V here are the instructions to play the DVD while driving...

    -edit-: You must have the dvd version for this to work (2003 CTS has a CD based nav system).

    Enjoy, but WATCH THE FREAKING ROAD!

    Basically---NO. You can't make a CD player play DVD's. (You can't play cd's in a cassette player, can you?) " The times are a-changin' "

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

    i had a pioneer dvd player in my eldorado and it also had this problem. all i had to do was figure out which wire hooked to the park sensor on the deck. all you have to do is snip the wire and ground it on the deck side. this "fools" the nav unit into thinking it is in park. does this make sense? pm me for any questions

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

    There was a thread a while back on how to do this....It works great, if i remember correctly you play the DVD in park, then you hold down the bottom 2 buttons on the right of the screen as well as the disc change button on the right side, then put the car in drive the DVD should remain playing....If this doesn't work do a search about a year back I got it off one of those threads...good luck
