As far as I know there is no way around this "safety" feature. Certain functions are still available, but the ones that require a lot more attention are disabled to make sure you don't screw around while you drive. A good idea in my opinion, but, not so good if you have a copilot who could easilly attend to it.

Is this only on the automatic series, cuz i know that when you purchase a lcd screen (sftermarket) for your car int he front it wont let u play a movie unless u have the E-brake on. So all you havce to do is cut some wire that is easily located along the path of the e-brake cord to the rear brake. here would be some areas to look at if u have an automatic: if u need to put it in park check ur transmision area for any cord u could cut (so to speak), or if you just have to be below some speed check the sensor for where your speed is read out, or if you have to have ur foot on the brake check the brake system for some cord. BUT DO THIS IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER DONT JUST START CUTTING THINGS. the only thing im not dure about is say u were able to find the cord and u cut it or remove it, would this cause some error? dont know but i hope this helps u, and sorry for my righting it is 1:20 in the morning. late

Actually the work around is quite the opposite of your suggestion. Aftermarket Nav systems lock you out depending on the state of the emergency brake light. If the light is on, the Nav system controls work. If the light is off, you cannot make changes. By cutting any wires, you insure that the brake light will not come on. Instead what is usually done, is that the sensor for the Nav system is wired to something that has a constant voltage. Be aware that in many states this is illegal.

I am not positive, but I believe the factory installed nav system on the G actually ties into the speed sensor. You will notice that you can make changes at low speed (5 MPH), but once you get going you are locked out. So even applying your E brake to engage the brake light does not work. I am not aware of any work arounds for this.

Did u even read what i wrote, i said exactly the same thing as what ur saying, when the e-brake is on u can whatch a movie, but whatever just sayin. And about cutting the wire of course u shouldn't just take some wire cutters and snip the thing off, i would suggest going to a good car stereo place where u can ask them where the wire is, they will not be able to do it for u but they will pretty much tell u where it is and what u would have to do in a hinting manner. hope u find out Viczeva what it is that u have to do to get it to work.

Although it is difficult through the bad spelling and poor grammer, I did read your post. This is what concerned me.

We are not in agreement. You believe the e-brake is responsible for controlling the Nav System. You also mention that a wire somewhere near the rear brakes can be cut to bypass this "safety" feature.

On after-market Nav Systems, it is not the e-brake. It is the e-brake LIGHT. The light comes on when the circuit is completed by engaging the e-brake. In a professional installation, the Nav system is also tied into this circuit, and thus when the circuit is closed you can control the Nav System. It has NOTHING to do with wires near your brakes. This can be defeated by connecting the Nav sensor to a different, permanently closed circuit.

As for optional factory installed Nav Systems (G35 included), the sensor is not simply control by the e-brake light. Instead it is tied into the speed sensor.

Perhaps you meant to suggest that someone cut the speedomter wires. ;)
