Just found this out. Total surprise for me. Didn't know it had this feature. Sorry if people already knew this but I just think this is so awesome.

>:D

I have not tried this yet. Is this true of all model (I don't have navigation)? I saw video on the screen but I have not popped in a DVD yet.

Most NX models equipped with a Lexus Navigation System should be able to play DVDs when the parking brake is on but you may want to consult your manual or just stick one in as a test.

Must be some way to get around not being able to play videos while in drive and i'm sure there might be some folks actively looking into this... might just be a matter of time for a solution to show up.

I believe that this thread is about playing DVD movies on the front screen.
Most rear seat entertainment systems can play for the rear seat occupants.

They disable the video playing on the front screen because it is distracting to the driver, and I think that is true. If you get in an accident and they find a video was playing, it could definitely work against you.

It's distracting if the driver is watching too but I guess they won't accept that explanation if an accident does occur with the from player on.

That's what I meant, must be some way to get it to play no matter what you're doing with the vehicle. Seen it done with older vehilces, they trick the system in some way.

I think that even if you are trying not to watch: 1. Try explaining that in a crash investigation, and 2. I think that even if you are trying not to watch, a movie has the ability to catch your eye. That is why it's called "distracting".

it's not something you'd want to let them know, just like how you wouldn't say you were texting on your phone moments before a crash. It's illegal and presents an issue with your insurance policy. One of those things you keep to yourself ;)

Seems like they would have an easier time figuring out there was a movie playing than proving you were on your phone though. You have to do some rewiring for the DVDs, but unless you texted the moment the car crashed you should be fine in the other circumstance.
