Directions and wiring diagrams specific for your unit that you purchase is the way to hook it up or circumvent turning off when in gear.
most work, when the parking brake is depressed it creates a ground and the DVD player operates normally, this is not the case for all players

and you will get pulled over of a cop sees a screen in your car with a movie or any movement on the screen, provided that the cop can see it. That is why the DVD is spuuosed to be operated when the parking brake is depressed
thats why i have a motorized unit
just close the screen when you get pulled over
Ditto
yea thats true
Not if that'* why they pulled you over. I doubt they're goona just say "oops, my mistake" and walk away....
my HU has a DEMO feature that show a slideshow of all the functions it can do which can look like a moive but isnt so.... they will have to say "my mistake"
see ill put it like this i know kenn is with me on this who is going to spend 2k on a indash dvd player and cant entertain there passengers on road trips or whenever for that matter?
most of you guys just dont understand? its all what risk you want to take

haha yah it doesnt work that easily by just closing your indash. I installed my friends indash and yah its just a ground wire for the parking brake switch. my friend closed his indash before the cop came up and the cop asked him where the tv went. he only got a warning since it was his first time. he was very lucky to only get a warning, cuz those tickets are pricey. I have the sunvisor tvs so i just usually have a passenger watch it or turn them to the sides and let everyone else enjoy because the cops cant do anything about it if i have them turned so i cant see them.
