well once the car is moving, shouldnt it either show a still picture or no picture at all... as its a distraction to the driver... much like you explained in the second post?

nah when the car is turned on the screen automaticly folds itself in, reminding the driver to not watch well driving. but you can open it again and let the passengers watch. all you have to do is turn it on again lol.

just a question outa interest - it is sorta related.

in car dvd is spose to be illegal right - coz it distracts the driver, but what about the BA / BF falcons that have factory lcd screens?

couldnt they be exactly the same thing - a distraction to the driver?

i know they dont play dvd's as such, but its the same principal right?

just wondering if you could use that as an excuse to a cop when they pull you up..

also - iv got my screen to show my cd info from the stacker too, and the pics are still (pretty much...) is this illegal to drive along with the screen up displaying cd info...?

cheers

(soz if hijaked the thread :S)
