Talking You can watch the DVD while driving

Here are the steps to be driving, riding, and watching (Be safe, if you are diving, do not watch screen!!)

Step 1 Put in DVD.
Step 2 Play DVD (Do not leave it at the front menu, if you do not start the DVD you will not be able to start it after you begin to drive.)
Step 3 While playing - Hit the second from the bottom button on the right hand side of the DVD screen and then press the forward Seek Button. (You may see a little flicker)


Step 4 Now disable the parking break and make sure that the DVD stays on.
Step 5 Enjoy

If you did everything correct you will notice that all the features are disabled. If you are at the main menu of the dvd you will not be able to select play movie or any features.

If you would like to stop the dvd, you must hit the top right button first. Then it will bring up the safety lock if you are in motion or parking break off.

Other notes:
I got DVD-R to play fine in mine, but the +R are having some problems.

What player? Isn't there a clutch/nuetral safety switch wire on the head unit that can be grounded?

I couldn't get it to work.

When the DVD is playing are you supposed to put it on a different screen before hitting the second from the bottom button, and if so which screen?

I followed the steps and saw the flicker but when the brake came off the movie stopped.

I wonder if Cadillac made a change on my car that I got on 6/30/05

Steps:

1. parking break on
2. hold second from bottom button then press seek button. this should bring up a menu that says "cold gps start" and something else
3. press second from bottom button and seek together again. this should get rid of that screen you were just on
4. release parking brake and enjoy!

This is great, but there is no functionality. Only the ability for it to play. It would be nice to be able to load in new DVDs, use the home menu, and use the seek/search buttons.

Sure would. It would also be nice to have real navigation, modern source inputs, and quality sound output. If only there was a way to make that happen...
