DVD on Nav Screen

Can the output from the factory installed VES (Vehicle Entertainment System) be routed to the NAV screen?

Thanks.

Re: DVD on Nav Screen

Not without some sort of modification. Many states have laws about video devices in view of the driver when the vehicle is in operation.

Re: DVD on Nav Screen

I know Virginia does. I believe Maryland does. I am not sure but I am guessing if NY is outlawing brush guards they probably already outlawed video.

Yep. NY MV law says (in typical wording of such statues) that no video screen may be installed such that it can be viewed from the driver's seat, with the usual backup camera exception.

Re: DVD on Nav Screen

I drove a Lincoln Navigator that had a Navigation system with the camera integrated on the screen. The screen tilted in three directins for easy viewing and flipped down to insert CD or DVD. You could insert a DVD movie and watch it up front if the vehicle was in park. I thought it was cool to have that option. It was an aftermarket installation here in Oklahom City. By the way, the screen was much bigger than the Commander's; so, viewing in the camera mode was really nice (you could see what was behind you very well because it is such a big screen) - I am a little concerned the the Commander's won't let you see much because the screen seems so much smaller - Those that have the integrated camera, can you see what you need to in the camera mode?

If anyone knows where to get the screen modified to accept DVD's (movies) while the vehicle is in park, please post!

Thanks.
