Has anyone every tried to hook up a portable DVD player or video cam to the original BMW LCD screen?
Also is there any way to stop the screen from switching off when the car starts moving?

Its a 2003 M3 with the wide screen LCD

Thanks

There is a company that can actually make your factory Nav/LCD accept and display DVD's as opposed to having to purchase and install periphial equipment. I will get the info to ya tonight.

As far as the screen shutting off when moving it is probably tied into the parking brake circuit and would just need to be bypassed...

Hey JLLPHAN.
I'd appreciate the information as well if you're planning on PMing it, otherwise, I'll just check back...

Couple of sites I've seen something like this are:
Nav-TV
TV On NAV

And, if anyone can translate for me/us?
NAV TV Japan?

Sorry.

The navtv sight was the one I was talking about. They advertise in Bimmer Magazine, that is how I had heard of them. Anyone in that mag is usually reputable.

Sounds like an intricate but worthwhile investment.

NAV TV is only available on the older NAV systems.. Mk-2 which was like 1997-1999 systems. NAV TV WAS purely a Euro option, but was accessable either by aftermarket programming or by the right sequence of buttons being pressed on the NAV system.
