In Dash DVD Player

I have 2012 with the in dash DVD Player. I know it is a safety feature that the DVD players picture cuts out when the vehicle starts moving but is there a way to circumvent this? I have no illusions of watching a movie while I am driving 70 down the highway but my children sure would enjoy it. I figured I'd ask. Cant imagine I'm the only one to ever think of this. OK, I just Googled this and I am not the only one. I live in the Albany, NY area. Is there anyone with a VAG/COM VCDS that lives near me that can help me with this. Thanks

It will be a firmware hack, not a code change. My RNS 510 has the hack, but to be honest I have not used it since i have done it. I have no kids and it really doesn't benefit me at all.

If your Treg has the adaptive cruise control, lane assist, and autonomous emergency braking, it would probably be somewhat ok to watch a DVD while in motion.

Is OP talking about RNS850 on T3?

I thought that was easier?
