Allowing DVDs to play on iDrive while driving?

Does anybody know a good resource to find information regarding this?

Thanks

It's being talked about in another thread.

I've used them and confirm they are awesome.
They also provide updates and changes as the come about for free.
Updates on top of DVD/TV Free are, Internet in motion, DAB Radio, removal of Disclaimer screen.

Anyone know if you can retrofit TV functions? I don't believe it's available in the US but is in UK and other countries.

It is possible but takes a bit for effort as you also need to run the antenna's.

Read this post yesterday, went to the link provided above and bought the software, received it an hour later, burned to a disk with ease, and drove to work this morning with a movie playing. No issues - everything worked exactly as described on their website. In case it didn't, I was sent a contact name and number to call for immediate troubleshooting assistance. Hmm, a quality product AND competent customer service? Who knew that still existed? Now if only my cable provider...


Strongly recommend DVD in Motion to anyone interested.

Did have one question though. Has anyone successfully burned a video purchased via iTunes and been able to watch the DVD on their car's system? I've had no luck thus far and don't want to buy any more movies/videos until I can confirm Apple's format is compatible and/or is not protected. Seems like it should work given the system's compatibility to my iPhone.

Any insight?

Has anyone tried to play video from ipod on the display in the car?

I'll get my car in a few days and I wonder if this software will allow me to play video stored in my ipod touch.

With DAB radio do you have to choose this option first? or this hack would somehow enable the DAB radio hidden in your system even if you did not choose the DAB radio option when ordering the car?

Thanks.
