Default nav touch screen removal???? dvd screen display in park only byepass?

I have a 2011 1500 sport with the center console, has anyone pulled out the touch screen deck? If so how? Also is there a byepass on the dvd screen display, so it plays while you drive . Not just in park? Thanks for the help..

Dont forget to check with your local police agency to see about the legality of making the dvd player viewable while driving. In NB, Canada, as part of the distracted driver law you can no longer use hand held cell phone or electronic devices nor have any video viewing devices in sight. The only exception is GPS units which can be in sight but cannot be adjusted by the driver during driving.

PS dont forget how easy it is to get distracted by having a movie playing in the drivers sight. (Im a police officer and have seen what distracted driving can do!)

The only way to bypass the video safety features is to install one of the products brianmoser posted above. Grounding the parking brake just doesn't work in these new fancy touch screen radios.

Not that I am a proponent of watching DVDs while driving, there is another benefit of bypassing. Some of the NAV features only work while in park. This becomes kind of a pain in the rear when the family is going somewhere and I need to pull over to change routes. I have a perfectly capable passenger who could operate the NAV but it wont work unless you are in park.

I installed the lockpick CHR550. Super easy to install, plus it not only bypasses the factory safety settings, it makes adding cameras easy and the ipod features are better than factory (meaning I can actually use it).

Thanks for the legal heads up... I could see how it could be distracting,

I laughed out load a little when I read that. I can't imagine any dealer could or even would bypass the safety features Chrysler built in. I can just picture someone walking into the service bay and asking if their video can be unlocked to watch DVDs while on the move.
