I just placed an order for it 2 mins ago, so what do I have to do to enable it? Just turn on my engine and put the CD in? That's all?

Yes it works. Two days no problem. The same amount of time to deinstall if you are afraid of the dealer during service.

Got mine working today. Couldn't have been any easier.

Unfortunately the first DVD I was able to test it with was some girl's fashion show DVD that she had in her purse.

When you go to the dealer, just insert the CD and uninstall the software. After they re-program it, install the CD again.

I'm not going to bother resetting it, anyway I have made friends with the techs.

Bought it yesterday. Lucie responded within minutes with link for Bimmerfest subscribers, downloaded the iso image, burned it to a cd -r (tdk) and followed directions. Took about two minutes.

Works beautifully! I recommend it to all that are considering. My understanding is that it simply toggles the switch to permit DVD viewing while driving. Toggles off just as easily, if your taking your car into service and don't want your dealer to know. Must say, now that it's installed I see why it's disabled from factory. It's very easy to take your eye off road...Be careful!

Dvd in motion

I just ordered the software and it works great. I was a skeptic for two weeks and I googled everything I could on the company. Nonetheless, i took the plunge and it works. Highly recommend it to anyone.

Talking DVD in Motion

I found Lucie at dvdinmotion.com on this thread and I am so glad I did. This worked out great. I bought the cd from the web site and
within minutes Lucie emailed me asking me the specifics about my car and the function of playing a DVD. For a 2011 750i the DVD screen either goes blank as soon as you move into Drive OR it dosen't happen until you reach 2-3 miles per hour. Anyhow, as soon as I told Lucie which way my cars worked she emailed me the link to download the cd to unlock it. Within minutes I had the cd burned and was in the car installing it. it worked on the first try! Wow I am loving it. I can watch dvd's in motion anytime I want now. My car has a huge 10.2 inch wide screen that has a crisp beautiful picture. Combine that with the surround sound and it's like being in a movie theatre...Honestly, it is. I love this and highly recommend this to everyone. Just keep your eyes on the road! But, it really works fior anyone who is skeptical. You pay on credit card, so you have nothing to lose. Try it, you will love it.

Please email me of you have any questions. Road trips will never be the same for me now in my 750. And, I promise I am not and ad for dvdinmotion, I really just love watching DVDs in my car now!

Does this work with iPod/iPhone video playback?

Lot's of movies on the old iPod, wondering if this mod will also work with my iPod and iPhone.

Thanks!

I've not tried my iPhone but don't anticipate it would work as no auxiliary video input.

Works fine if you have the "media" cradle. I need to see how some of my iPhone movies are formatted, they appear a bit cropped on top/bottom.
