Video In Motion - activated


I did something interesting during the week. I have always been interested in getting my DVD's to play whilst driving like I used to have in my Holden Caprice. I read about a firm in the UK who did this by sending you a disk image which you copied to a disk and then inserted into the car and it recodes allowing you to watch the DVD player whilst moving.

Well, guess what - I took the risk and paid the money, got the file, made the disk, went through the loading procedure and it bloody works!! I can now drive my 2010 325i and have DVD's playing whilst or what?

I was really worried things would bugger up in the car's computer or the CIC but all cool - it worked also after I turned the car off and restarted. I have the disk so can do it again if I need to get the car updated by BMW for any reason and I can turn it back off again too.

I am now going to consider getting the TV activated in the car also but I donít think it is digital though and not sure of the cost - does anyone know if it is expensive?

Anyway that's my story for this weekend....
