I dont know of any code but there is a wire harness available to make it function, as well as allow you to input a destination on nav and a few other lockout features.

I see nothing wrong with allowing the front passenger to watch movies while the driver drives.

Or at least make it work when the shift lever is in park....like if you're waiting for someone shopping in a store or something.

Do you really believe that the driver won't be distracted by the dvd playing while he/she drives??
If that front passenger really needs to view a movie let them move to the back seat or watch one on a small dvd player that the driver can't view

Thats not for any of us to decide. I know that I wouldnt watch, I really concentrate when driving. I dont even get people who glance at their passengers while talking to them. Are they checking to make sure the person is still there? I think the passenger will excuse the driver for not looking over to confirm that they are listening. Anyways, I digress, I think that people need to take responsibility for themselves and the rest of us shouldnt be punished for those who are not responsible.

Ahh..ok, I don't have the nav so I didn't know. I think disabling the movies within the sightlines of the driver while the vehicle is in motion is more about GM trying to avoid lawsuits and liability more than limiting choices..and I can't really blame them for that. For every one person out there that could zone out the movie and concentrate on driving there are ten more that would let their attention wander....especially if the sound came out of the stereo speakers instead of the passenger having to wear a headset. (not to mention legions of lawyers that would love for GM to allow the driver to watch movies ;))

Agreed!


Actually, most stated (if not all) have a law against have video displayed in the front seat that is visible to the driver. At this point its less of a lawsuit thing and more of a legal thing. I understand that and I dont disagree.

I guess what im saying is that I have considered that adaptor that allows video playback in drive, nav destination inputs in drive, and backup camera operation in drive. Did I see here that someone was having issues with it though? Not surprised, it seems that GM thought of everything to prevent adding non-OEM stuff to this car. IE HIDs will never work like OEM ones because of those **** DRLS.

RNOX: You're correct they are mandatory in Canada, have been since 1992 I believe. Has saved a lot of lives I'm sure, especially on 2 lane rural highways.

Correct, not in the US. The light switch lets you turn off the DRLs, but apparently that's after the car is already started. Not sure how or if you can disable them via the car's normal controls.
