It is against the law to have a display located where the driver can see what is playing on the screen, hence why the systems reference road speed and disable the display.

In my aftermarket dvd player screen/headunit I think I just grounded out the handbrake wire. so it thinks it's always on. Or something to that extent. But yes illegal if you get caught.

not all aftermarket head units work this way i tried setting mine up like yours dan but it looks for a relay before allowing you to display the visual so its a massive fail, i either need to wire up a relay into it or ground it properly :wall:

Are there any audio specialists out there that have an idea about getting around this? Any help is appreciated

contact a shop such as complete options but they won't wear any liability when you get a fine for it as it is illegal
