I started to do it. I got a Dension AVR and found out it is only for EU cars.
I think Mark or Nick has done it and can chime in with their knowledge.

Looks like you are on the right track. In the USA some folks have installed the MODMYNAV interface, which looks similar to the one you put the link to from Eastern Europe/Asia.

http://modmynav.com/interface.html

These devices only get the video on screen, you would need to make sure that you have an Ipod interface that will output video to these units.

Here is a writeup for the install (NOTE: The guy from this post, whatheheck, later switched his system to a MODMYNAV box and Ipod, the post below shows a DVD player in the glovebox).

Here is the later change to a ModMyNav video interface along with a mObridge Ipod interface

The unit linked in my signature for the reverse camera supports video playback as well. The challenge is it only does video - you're on your own for audio.

Here's another option for you:

http://www.xcarlink.co.uk/home.php?cat=16

This one works with both MASK & CCC, it doesn't need the car to already have Sat Nav.

I don't think the OEM IPod interface has an aux input so you will need to add one. The Dension 500 has an Aux input jack.

Hey Taz,

Why don't you install a modmynav unit so that you can play video.

I guess I don't understand why anyone would want video in what is essentially a two-seater? I guess if you roadtrip with one kid in the car riding shotgun it would make some sense. But for that just have a tablet that they can shove in their melon for entertainment.

Agree with that one. I used to have all that stuff in my previous rides but entertainment devices have come a long way since then. Now folks just use things such as iPads and the like because you can do so much more than watching TV.

I started to do it because it would be waaaaaaaayyyy coooolllllll

You are right, it has absolutely no value or need what so ever.

Reviving an old thread here...I also think it would be pretty cool to play videos on the idrive screen! I'm finally having my aux input installed tomorrow. Where do I go from there to make this happen? Do I have to play videos via an iPod interface or can I mod the in dash DVD somehow to be able to play DVDs?

Look at NAVVIDEO.COM. That's what I use.
