Video is tempting, but that guy was especially bad. I recently upgraded my truck radio to a DVD-capable unit, but the video circuitry was locked out and required I hook up some extra wires so that it would only work while the emergency brake is on. So since I didn't want to screw around with my parking brake wiring and since this also disabled important things like the ability to setup bluetooth I found a module on Amazon that tricks the player into thinking the emergency brake is constantly on so that it will enable these features. I was testing with a DVD, got it working, and then immediately had to go to work. I left the DVD play to test it in a real world drive and had no intention of watching it, but the temptation to take a peek was powerful. I have never used it for video playback since because it's just too tempting. Unlike that iPad guy, there's this thing called self control that you must employ at some point.
