Nav Unit In-Motion Limitations Defeated!!

Finally, after many months of work by some pretty brilliant hackers out there a patch has been made available that defeats the 10 mph "in-motion" restriction for entering data and functions on the REC nav units. Now passengers (not drivers!!) can enter in destinations while on the go.

The hack requires that you have the latest "AE" version software. You copy the files to your hard drive, run an .exe patch utility to modify one of the files, then put everthing back together as an ISO file which you then burn a dual-layer DVD from. Works great!!

Full details can be found at http://www.carhack.org/forum (from there go to the LX Platform Hacking section). On the same site is a link where you can download all of the AE files via a "torrent" link.

Although I'm just relaying this info from another site. A nice gesture from someone would be to burn me a copy, i would gladly pay for the DVD and shipping costs, you can PM me.....Thanks all and much love to the Hackers and original poster of this.

Re: Nav Unit In-Motion Limitations Defeated!!

I read through the other thread... Are you certain that it will work for the unit in our Commander. I viewed the software version in my Commander and it didn't look like the one that they were talking about but I didn't write it down so I'm not 100% sure.

If it will work then I would also be interested. I really hate that I can't enter an address while my wife is driving or visa versa.

Re: Nav Unit In-Motion Limitations Defeated!!

The only things I worry about: 1.) screwing something up and making the system unusable. 2.) getting attached to the functionality and then having to wait for someone to hack it again when a new version comes out.

1. I dont know how this could happen. 2. i guess you would just have to deal with this if the AF version came with an even newer firmware.

I am pretty sure it will. What I prefer would be that from the factory, if a driver gets in and is presented with the agreement that they have two choices... yes, you agree to to obey traffic laws, etc. - OR - you agree to to obey traffic laws, etc. AND to allow in-motion navigation.

I would love to throw a switch and have it too, but Murphy's law says it cannot be so
