Default Play DVD on the Nav screen

I have a 7 seat B9 Tribeca with Nav. I wonder if there is a way to hack the system and play the DVD on the Nav screen. I have friend do it in his BMW X5. Just wonder if I can do it in my Subaru.

Thank in advance.

That function is built in. When your Tribeca is parked in "P" the navigation sreen automatically switch to the DVD movie being shown in the rear entertainment system.

I just emailed http://www.pac-audio.com/ and see what they can do or what they have heard about it this new Tribeca system.
I deal w/ PAC, almost(seems like) on a daily basis, and I will try and figure out if there is a way to bypass w/ little problems.

My car does't have a rear entertainment system. My question is how to use my NAV system to play DVD.

Thanks for your reply

We have the DVD entertainment system but not the NAV but from what I understand if you have both and put the car's parking break on the DVD will also play on the front NAV screen as well as the normal flip down one. There must be some inputs somewhere to get the vid to the NAV. I have the Service Manual coming so possibly there are some wiring diagrams I can check out.

Petay,

Where did you order the service manual from? How much is it? I am interested to order one too.

Thanks

There is a way to watch it while driving...it has to do with pressing and releasing the e-brake really quickly....that's all I can say....

Read the above post...it can be done, I've seen it....

Just pretend your brakes don't work and you have to use the e-brake in a panic stop, then quickly release it. Just make sure people or cars aren't around...

what about this scenario

I have neither the DVD or Nav, but can I use and external DVD player to play in the display?

Or is their a way in the backend to convert the stock CD/MP3 player to say a PC's CD/DVD without altering the console?

AFAIK you get a different type of screen when you get the NAV (touch screen)VS the standard system so it's not able to play vids

Why would one want to do something this dumb (no offense!). I mean, using cell phones while driving is bad enough, and now you want ANOTHER thing to get your eyes off the road?

Has anyone figured out how to do this yet? I have a DVD player in my WRX and all I had to do was ground the wire that was going to the parking brake.

Put down the parking brake while "temporarily" stopped. The Toyota Sienna guys made a little switch from Radio Shack parts that connected to the speed sensor and allowed the nav to play dvd's while moving. I assume something similar to that might have to be done. The Acura nav's required a slight mod to the circuit board to do the same thing.

The only OTHER alternative is to get an aftermarket DVD/Nav like the new Pioneer AVIC.

Not true. My '06 has nav WITH the touch screen and it plays movies just fine as long as the parking brake is on.

However, once the screen is overridden with DVD video, how do you turn it off again if this is something hacked in? The screen has multiple features ya' know...

I was saying unless you get the NAV with the touch screen you can't play vids, we have the non nav with the DVD system and can not play vids on our screen.

I also said this above:

or you could just add a switch to ground the ebrake wire to make the system think you are braking, no? .. LOL!

It may not be that simple. On the Toyota's they have it hooked to a speed sensor as well as the ebrake. As I stated earlier, if Subaru uses something similar, then you'd have the switch bypass both.

However, we still need to know how Subaru does it. Is the front passenger allowed to make NAV changes while the car is in motion? Hopefully the person who ordered the Service Manual can tell us if there is a diagnostic mode we can get into to try to make changes to the way DVD movies are played. If not, then we need to figure out exactly which wires prevent DVD movies from playing in the front.

Its just kind of ironic how all these auto manufacturers spend so much money designing a SAFE system for us to use. However, we as consumer hate the SAFE systems and always strive to override them. LOL.

Check out the "Anyone know how to tap the aux input in" thread, scot3803 has found a way to hook up his ipod to play video on the nav system and a back up cam... I have compiled a PowerPoint presentation with the pics that he posted to install an audio port to the AUX input with notes from others from the thread
