|donmeca2020||there is also way to do it, without doing anything with wires but by booting the headunit into windows and entering a command as well. let me see if i can find some info and i'll post it.|

Video in motion (up front) is illegal.
I sent my broken Lockpick V.5 back and installed a working one over the weekend...and was able to view a DVD while in drive (with the brake on in the garage of course).
I would strongly advice against playing a DVD while driving...it will be very distracting. As as someone who spends a lot of time on a motorcycle....a distracted driver in a 4000 pound vehicle is not a good thing.

Did you read any of the other posts in this thread?
There's nothing illegal about bypassing the e-brake cutout for video playback on a vehicle that is being used solely for off road purposes.

|donmeca2020||there is i believe also something you can do with the wiring harness that comes with the headunit as well. i recall my friend doing it for me year ago with my pioneer unit. it's as easy as pulling a wire out of the harness and repositioning it in another slot.|

Hypothetically speaking yes, it could be. Obviously as donmeca suggests it would be illegal to bypass the parking brake connection, but if one were to be purely planning to use one's Jeep off road and therefore not subject to such rules, it would probably be possible to get permanent video replay by just connecting the e-brake wire from the head unit to the ground cable in the harness. I have found such a connection to be effective in other vehicles that I have owned for off road use only.
If this isn't successful, it is likely that you could make it work by inserting a relay into the e-brake/ground connection and wiring it to a switched live from the head unit (because the head unit is looking for an active ground), or if you want to go manual just inserting a switch and toggling it when you want to watch video. Again, I would stress that this would only be appropriate for a vehicle that was exclusively for off road use.

|donmeca2020||a fellow south Floridian !!! let me get to it before they all shoot you down. that is 100% illegal to have a vehicle in motion and still play movies,videos, etc. but yes it can be done. i would suggest finding a forum dedicated to your brand of head unit and ask there.|

Can a 2013 JKU Sahara Alpine 730 system DVD be bypassed to play while in motion?
I have a 2013 JKU Sahara fully loaded with the premium alpine 730 stereo system. Hypothetically speaking, can the safety feature that prevents viewing while in motion, be bypassed?
