    Disable video/dvd on front/main screen while in motion

    Who want this option implemented in RoadRunner?
    Video/DVD playback is block on front (main) screen.
    Video/DVD is playing for back seat passengers only => Dual monitor support.
    Front(main) screen is force to display GPS or Menu only.

    Well, I'd never use it, and I don't think anyone else would actually use it, but it would be really good to have it in there as an option (on as default). This is the perfect answer to stupid comments you get about the dangers of having the computer on while driving, etc.

    once you convince the whiners that your system is safe, you can turn it off and resume playing NFS in traffic...

    Quite a good idea to have the option, keying off GPS data perhaps?

    The point of running a carPC is so you can have anything enabled at your will. If I want to do triple digits on the E-way with a visualization running than thats up to me. If you don't want to watch a DVD while driving than DON'T. This is a terriable feature request, but then again my opinion is biased as I have made some $$ unlocking some OEM systems so they will have all functions while in motion. I voted NO on this feature, guino's time can be better spent further developing the wide array of useful features already implemented in RR.

    why waste time coding that? If you want the feature it makes perfect sense for you to use self-restraint
