I was talking to this girl with a Denali, and she SWEARS that her brother was able to rig the wiring so that it plays DVDs while in drive, without a lockpick. I always thought it would be possible but still not sure what to do without a wiring diagram. I asked her if she has to push the mute button a number of times and she said no, it's automatic. I'm gonna see if I can get more info from her, or her brother, and take a look at it myself. I will let you guys know if I find anything.

Also, I know I've seen threads in here where the XM category full scrolling feature, limited in drive, was also solved by the Lockpick. Thought I should let you guys know that I found, somewhere in the factory control options, a selection that does allow you to choose to have full category scrolling while driving. No need for the Lockpick for that one, anyway. I will go through it tomorrow so I can relay the process here for those that want to figure it out.

The only negative I've heard of the lockpick that it disables the tracking of your vehicle's location on the navi as it bypasses the speed sensor. I don't have it myself and probably won't get it if this is true.. can anyone confirm this?

Black dog i'm interest in the info that you get from your friends brother.

i came across the xm option you are taking about. I disabled the lockout under a one of the systems menu right when i bought vehicle so not sure what exactly was different.

vroom and black dog heard the same thing. And like you guys I don't want to hop on one foot while balancing a ball on my nose as i press a door button and hit mute 5 times, all the while leaving my nav useless.

I'm trying to get it, and as soon as I come up with something I will definately start a thread.

And the XM, when it's locked you can go to the folder screen, but you can't scroll the category pages. It stays on whatever page it's on. Don't remember if it does it to the station list too, but I think it does.

I think GM should have added a sensor on the passenger seat. It would detect the weight of a passenger and then allow the all the touch screen controls to be operated and the DVD to play on the front screen while in motion. This sensor could worked similar to the seatbelt or airbag sensor.

I have the lockpick installed GMX-320 and nav works just fine...My first thought was similar to other posts here, too much button pushing, but its really not that bad and the blue tooth usage with a cell phone makes the lock pick all worth it.

how does the automatic setting work?

Do you need to hit buttons everytime you restart the truck? I was looking for sometime that I connect/program one time and dont have to touch it again.

You do need to repush the buttons everytime you want to play a video on the front screen, otherwise its normal operation.
