Yeah, what he said^^^^^

common sense will tell you to either watch the road or watch TV while you drive....I don't think a politician making stupid laws should be able to tell you

On my 3051s to watch DVD while driving turn the out put on the dash player to AV2 put DVD into player and turn tv on and set to AV2 on the tv input. Watch away!! picture will not show up on dash screen and parking brake never comes into play. As a mater of interest the parking never needs to be applied even if sitting in park if you want to watch DVD.

Once while driving across country in my class c by myself and at night, I confess I put my portable dvd on the dash just for the sound and company (Phil Silvers show) instead of listening to the radio. I only glanced at the screen for a split second every once and a while, no more than I did when checking my gauges. I did catch some of the picture in my peripheral vision at time but did not take my eyes off the road. This was the most enjoyable part of the trip and passed the time beautifully. Again, there was no distraction and probably less than talking to someone else and occasionally glancing in their direction. It kept me awake and alert and entertained.

I'll give this a try. For the record, I DO NOT WANT TO WATCH ON THE HEAD UNIT, I want passengers in the back to be able to watch DVDs while I am driving up front.

DVD to tv while driving in 3051S?

Okay, figured it out.The dvd will play to the tv while in motion but my display is disabled with the parking brake warning. Just needed to set my tv to the AV input. Click image for larger version

Any idea how to get some cooling to the mini bar? I hate when my martini gets warm!

wire the parking brake to a ground switch. might have to do a 3 position switch, depending on how that Jensen works. my old Jensen had a secret menu that let me override the parking brake in the software without wiring. and once you bypass it, one of those three buttons above the volume knob should power the screen off but leave the radio on. everyone is happy
