Bypassing the "in-motion" menu

There was another thread on this that did not come to a conclusion, since we have this new forum, I figured I would pose the question again.


Has anyone heard of/figured out a way to bypass the in-motion menu while driving for those of us who are capable of not crashing while navigating?

Re: Bypassing the "in-motion" menu

I asked the dealer about it, he said you can't.... I would love to get rid of that annoying <ENTER> keystoke (I've read it already!), and be able to have the passenger put in an address while driving instead of having to remember to do it before I get going. Hope someone comes up with some way of allowing it.

I have a guy working on it right now and I think he can do it because he said to me it would cost $100 CASH only and he would NOT provide me with a receipt (for obvious reasons).

I will let you know if he did it.

OK, then rip the radio out of the dash and see which line he tied to ground and we'll each chip in $10.00.

Re: Bypassing the "in-motion" menu

I'm in too.
That damn screen is annoying.
When my wife is driving, I love to play with the GPS but once we're moving over 5 mph most of the functions are locked out. I've read other GPS sites and vehicle sites and some of the fixes include hand brake switches (electrical connections) or soldering a jumper on the circuitboard etc. Can't find anything on Jeep GPS lockout override.
They should allow full GPS control when the passenger side seat scale weighs an adult passenger (air bag deployment sensor system). I read there's a gyro in the GPS system to maintain position updates even when more than two satelites are not available due to overhead obstruction. It may be as easy as cutting a speed sensor wire going to the GPS.

Here's another one.
Did anyone order an updated GPS DVD? It's pretty expensive.

Well, my guy struck out. After looking at my NAV, he told me that whatever "CAN" system they are using, it makes it almost impossible to just "cut a speed sensor wire" because the wire does so many other things...he is still researching it, but I am not holding my breath.
