Just don't get caught with it in New Jersey. There is a motor vehicle statute prohibiting any TV-type screen visible to the driver while operating the vehicle.

Thanks Len, speeding is also illegal in NJ I take it? I'll take a ticket for a TV over speeding anyday

I take it you don't much care for the laws prohibiting hand-held cell phones, either.

I am sure we are all guilty of some sort of traffic law infraction. Let's not point finger please.

Let's face it, if you think about it, we ALL break the law EVERYDAY, multiple times a day, when we get behind the wheel of a vehicle.
#10 of 33 aftermarket screens.
Feb 06, 2007 (9:18 am)
I know that with aftermarket screens for the front have a wire that is to be hooked up to the parking brake,thus not being able to watch t.v or dvd without the parking brake on.But all this wire needs is ground to operate the t.v and dvd,so you can just ground it out and you can operate the front and rear screen when driving.If you say your car has to be in park for the dvd to work ,there has to be something similar to the aftermarket that you can do.Try to find out what all the wires are going into the radio clip and go from there.The only thing is if a problem occurs with the car somewhere else and the dealership see's what you did to get the t.v and dvd player to work when your driving they might void your warranty.Good luck

Oh I'm all for the laws, and always use my blue-tooth headset, however, it's more common sense than anything else. I hate when people point out laws that are obvious. For instance, the law prohibiting a TV in the front makes little sense as the passenger in the front can be watching the TV screen. I often drive with a movie playing, however I rarely watch it while driving, I drive far too agressively to pay attention to that. Spirit of the law over the letter is my motto.

Actually most these days have gyroscopes built into them if they have a GPS you can't over-ride them by simply connecting the parking brake wire to a 12+volt source. Manufacturers have gotten smart in this respect that basically negates them being overriden.
What the original poster is saying is that there is a device and I'm gonna go do the search for it now, that allows you to show the video feed from the 2nd row DVD player onto the 1st row Navigation screen (along with several other inputs IIRC) while the car is moving. It involves hacking a wire or 2 and that alone will void the warranty on the Navi and DVD screens I would think.

Woah, hey, speak for yourself. I make an effort to obey all traffic laws at all times. Not just in front of the police.
Although I once did drive at night for a block or two with only my parking lights on - though I fixed that as soon as I noticed.
