    Ideas for RR

    Hello,

    what do you think about an option, while driving video stops.

    For example:

    While the car is parking you can watch a video or dvd, but when you start driving, video stops automatically and play music, when you stand again, RR switch to dvd/video and play where it stoped. Maybe this could made by reading the gps-signal. The speed could be set in the rr.config like:

    pause-video-while-driving: 5 km/h

    What do you think?

    I don't think that anyone wants this feature. BTW, in germany it's not legal to have a carpc installed in the car anyway.

    1. there are some who will be dual screens and the video will be on the secondary monitors, so this is not a good option.

    2. Using the GPS is a bad idea, as there are times when you might not have GPS signal, so it wouldn't shut it off. Not a workable option.


    If you want it, you need a hardware solution that works off the handbrake.

    How about just not playing videos while driving? Why have someone else work on coding the program when all you have to do is keep your hand off the "Video" button?

    I would say if someone wants that feature for legal purpose then a signal from the engine should be used. Engine running>>>No Video. Or on an Automatic use the park position switch. Hand brake is just not up to par with this. I can loosen up the hand brake cable a little and then pull the hand brake one notch to get it off the switch and your hand brake is not engaged at all.

    Hello,

    if I could write why I thought about this maybe you would understand. But I will receive a mail with the translation from my aunt. Soon I post it here.

    I wrote that it should be in the rrconfig by setting a speed, so if you don´t want it, don´t use it.

    I'm sure your thinking of this from a legal standpoint so it would have to be a hardware thing otherwise you could just exit RR and play video anyway.Legally this leaves you back where you started so it needs to go deeper than RR.
