I also did it and find it dangerous. My question is to the guys who have the iPhone cradle. Are you able to stream videos and see it on the screen? Are you able to strea, YouTube, Netflix and iPhone recorded videos?

Have you managed to convert MP4 music videos to DVD format that are playable in the car's DVD player?

I just coded this option to my car with the Esys software and an Enet cable, its alot cheaper $25 for the cable and the software is free, and you can set it back to default if you have to visit the dealer

Exclamation DVD resolution and format!!!

Hello all, With so many posts of everyone being able to enable the DVD in motion. DOES anyone know what is the best format (resolution) to burn DVDs to. a lot of the movies and videos I burn only show in 40% of the screen (black bars on left and right) sometimes in the top and bottom.

With out me burning 50 different formats of the same video..... ..... can someone tell me which resolution shows the least amount of dead black space. Thanks I appreciate it
