Re: DVD on while driving

You could also try to google "TV in Motion" I think they offer cheaper plug and ply options. However Lockpick does have a lot more features.

Re: DVD on while driving

I know for a fact that Star Scan will NOT allow DVD in motion on a 2011 WK2 w/ 430RBZ head unit.

Re: DVD on while driving

I've looked around, but cannot find instructions for the newest LockPick. I've had people say it's simple, but I'm not sure as to their skill level to know if it's truly simple or not... would anyone be able to provide directions or at least give a good idea of how 'plug and play' the V4 lock pick is? Thank you!

It is very easy - the key is getting the radio out and then just plugging in the new harness to the radio from the lockpick device - took me about 15 minutes ans I located the device in the passenger footwell above the trim for easy future access if needed

Re: DVD on while driving

Truth be told, I want it to be able to input NAV while moving. I input roughly 8-10 address any given day, and the damn address book is just about useless for my needs - I have 850 different addresses I need in there and you can't import a single one - has to be done individually!!

If you have the 430N (RHB) you can bulk import contacts as points of interest (POIs). I haven't yet tried it, but it is definitely possible with the Garmin interface. If you're so inclined, do a Google search on "POI import 430N". The time consuming part is getting the geo coordinates for each contact, so you'll have to weigh which is easier/faster.

I'm looking forward to loading all sorts of information in to the unit, like red light/speed camera locations, favourite stores, etc. This appears to be one significant advantage over the 730Ns.

Re: DVD on while driving

You need a relay. find the wire that connects to your parking brake and run it into the relay. then use the power from your headunit to plug into the relay and bam. might be a little different for a stock headunit but it has the same principle to follow for bypassing.

Also the way i described it will cost you $10 vs a lot more.

youtube it if you have any troubles dude.

Re: DVD on while driving

From what I have read, the DVD player is linked to the transmission so that the movie player is only operable in park. What ever signal is given from the trans if this is the case, should be able to be duplicated. I will play with it this spring when I have more time and let everyone know what I find.

I would think there is more/less involved, as the rear-seat entertainment package should (can someone verify this) allow video to the rear monitor(s) even in motion. I believe the rear monitors get their video from the head-unit.

All of this is supposition, as I didn't opt for the entertainment package (got the Pano-roof instead). Lockpick or similar in my future....

Yes, the rear moniter does work while the Jeep is in motion and receives it's video from the headunit.
