instructions to enable front seat video in motion
 
Found instructions how to enable video while in motion. It appears it's a starscan feature.
Now you can save $300 and not buy a "lock pick"

Front seat video enable/disable

Due to certain state regulations, a function for disabling the front seat video option has been incorporated into the vehicle as a running change. This function will enable or disable the radios ability to play video in the front seat. If enabled, the radio will only play video when the vehicle is in Park (Automatic Transmission) or when the parking brake is set and vehicle speed is zero (Manual Transmission). If disabled, the radio will NOT play video in the front seat in any operating mode.

Certain state laws mandate that the Front Seat Video feature, on vehicles so equipped, be disengaged prior to vehicle delivery.

Vehicles equipped with the Front Seat Video ‘My GIG’ feature (sales codes RER, REN, REU), and delivered to the following states, must have the Front Seat Video feature disengaged during the New Vehicle Prep process, using the StarSCAN tool:

Connecticut
Florida
Illinois
Kansas
Michigan
New Mexico
Nevada
Oklahoma
Oregon
Pennsylvania
Tennessee
Texas
Maryland
Utah
Wyoming

For vehicles affected, the vehicle Navigation User Manual will contain a special insert providing the customer with specific details regarding this action.

NOTE: Some early release vehicles may be delivered without the special Navigation User Manual insert. For these vehicles it will be necessary to make a copy of the attached form 81-170-07055A and include it with the existing vehicle’s Navigation User Manual to ensure that the customer is aware of any legal requirements that may apply.

Dealer instructions for front seat video enable/disable:

1. Connect the StarSCAN®.
2. From the Home Screen, enter “ECU View”.
3. Select “Radio”.
4. Select “Misc. Functions”.
5. Select “Enable/Disable Front Seat Video”.
6. Select “Enable” or “Disable” as desired.
7. Select finish to exit.

hmmm....I wonder how much the bribes will be to get the techs to enable the feature in the states listed?

PartyPooper... Can I borrow your StarSCAN?

So where do we get a Starscan

Jocce 11-30-2010 10:46 AM

Is it possible to connect to the starscan via the OBD-II outlet?
What software would I need in the laptop in that case?

StarScan only works on the '09 and older vehicles. wiTECH must be used on anything 2010 and newer.

Unfortunately..this is a common misinterpretation..some states requires ALL front video diabled from the factory (no video even in park)..this is only an option to enable the video while parked or when the e brake is on. There is a "fake" mygig hack going around right now too, so watch for that..so far the only options for allowing video IN MOTION in the front are the in cable unlocker like allgig or lockpick.

This was the explanation I got from DC a couple years ago when I was looking at this option for my jeep with the mygig system.

There are some things that you just shouldn't do and this is one that goes to the head of the list.

I'll admit that I have also thought about it and how cool it would be but...

Ah There's the rub. I went on to think about how distracting it could be while actually driving down the road. I don't need to be watching that all important scene on the video when the light turns red or the big rig in front of me hits the brakes or the kid runs out into the street.

As they say your mileage may varry but I'm happy enough that it will play when I'm parked.
