Forgive my lack of knowledge here. I am thinking about getting the Double Din Kenwood and think it is very cool. I am OK with not watching TV while driving, people on cell phones not paying attention is bad enough these days.
My question is, does the Video Out to Secondary Monitors get turned off also? Does this mean my kids can't watch TV while I am driving?

I have read some of the more recent post and my only thought is this, it is your choice and should only be the driver's decision...IF...you can promise you will only hit unoccupied vehicles or a tree or a large rock and harm or kill only yourself. Until you can say for certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt that you will NOT kill someone if you hit them while watching your in-dash, you should not have a choice. The chances are probably slim that someone will wreck, but even at slim that means there is still a chance. Your choice to watch a DVD while driving is superceded by my choice to keep my family alive.

i have to laugh at the people using the analogy that watching video while driving is the same as using a seatbelt.... seatbelts are put in vehicles to protect you... whereas the safety video lockout feature is there to protect others!!

we just had a case here in Western Canada within the last 2 years where a semi driver wiped out a family of five because he was watching a movie while driving, rammed them from behind and drove them into oncoming traffic.....

if you choose not to wear a seatbelt and you get strained thru your windshield...too bad for you.... but if you choose to watch a movie while driving and smash into another car, possibly injuring or killing someone else's child or children... it's too bad for them..... as someone already so elequently stated here, you wouldnt masturbate and drive, you'd wait till you got home, so why not do the same for watching a movie??

and before you all bash me as some video hating dinosaur... i do have a video system in my SUV with headrest monitors for my backseat passengers to enjoy while i drive.....
