Whenever I am moving (even in the 1.5 mph rush hour traffic of Northern Virginia), my nav system tells me that the keyboard has been disabled while the vehicle is in motion...some kind of crazy safety feature.

Anyway, any thoughts of how I can trick it to think I'm standing still but be able to use the keyboard function for plot out my destination?

Yeah the in-motion menu is pretty limiting ... I think we are out of luck though. What bugs me worse is the warning message that shows everytime the nav system starts. It would be OK if it automatically went away after a few minutes, but it doesn't (that I can tell ... and I have let it sit there for a while) ... you have to hit "OK" to move into the map.

On Cadillac's system in the SRX you can hit a few buttons to bring up a service keypad, and entering a 4-digit code lets you watch DVD's while moving (which you can't usually do on the caddy, not sure about the RB1). I havent found one for unlocking the menus yet, though.

Maybe DC has something similar on their systems, apparently the above code was had from a very kind GM tech.

i have to figure out the schematic of the wires , if you would see if there is a wire going to the parking brake relay , if so unhook it and ground it and that should enable all of the features while driving . if not i will find out which wire it is .

"Bump" means bumping the thread to the top. So it doesnt slip away un-noticed.
