DVD In Motion. It Really Works!!

After being annoyed daily about having to pull over in order to enter a new address on my NAV system, I decided to look into solutions. The Only one I could find that seemed the easiest was a firmware patch or software install that re-wrote what restrictions were in place for my car/country. I found DVD In Motion.

After about half a dozen emails with the company asking all sorts of questions, I decided to take the plunge and just buy it. They accepted Paypal, had a legitimate enough looking website and they responded almost instantly to my questions so, I was comfortable enough to send my money to Prague.

Some of the questions I asked that you may be interested in..

How does it install?
See my attached video below for full description.

Is it reversible?
Yes, By repeating the installation steps you are turning the feature on and off again.

How much does it cost?
Well, they are a cool company and are willing to do a group buy if any of you or many of you want to buy it. They ask $199 for the patch but, I am sure we can get that way down with a group buy of 10 or more.

What does it do?
It allows you to enter any destination on the NAV while driving.
It allows you to watch any DVD while driving. Most useful for a passenger.
It allows you to use the web feature of the NAV while driving.

I haven't tried the other features but, plan on putting a DVD in and uploading another video to show how it works and that it does in fact work.

Check out the video and feel free to ask any questions , I will do my best to answer.

You can enter your destination while driving by using the Voice Commands.

I don't know if you have ever actually tried to enter a destination using voice commands but, I have never ever gotten it to work properly. Must be my NY accent or something, it is an exercise in futility.

You still can't watch a DVD while moving or use the WWW so, it still has usability for other purposes in addition to the nav.

Of course if you are paying for Mbrace concierge you just hit the button and give them address and they send it to the nav. screen.

Thanks for the video-tutorial! Would also be interested in a group-buy, try posting a thread in the Non-AMG W205 section. I'm sure some folks would also be interested there. I wonder what kind of discount they could offer.

I am already in contact with the manufacturer to see what they will do for us if we buy 10 patches.

I'm sure a lot of other MB models would be interested but, I am not a salesman or making anything so I am just informing other MB C63 owners to gauge interest. If someone happens upon this thread from another model they are more than welcome to join in the group buy.

I was reading somewhere that there was someone who was able to use the WWW to forward their destination to the nav. I don't know how it was done or if it was actually done. I will ask DVD in Motion if it can be done this way..

I'd be down for a group buy as well, though my C63 isn't being built until April 7.

Group Buy is ON!

Spoke with DVD in Motion and they agreed to a substantial discount. They asked me not to post the price publicly and I hope those of you who are part of the power buy respect their wishes. Anyone interested in purchasing or knowing what they are charging can inquire and respond via PM only please.

So, if you are serious and ready to go please PM me and I will give you a specific code to contact them with to get the discount. You will need to provide them with you VIN number at some point so they can make the program for your vehicle so, have that ready

I will not be handling any payments, they will all go through DVD in Motion directly.

Glad to give back a little to this community. Enjoy!!

Did mine this morning. Everything went exactly as described. All the prompts displayed and the system reset as per the instructions. Haven't driven the car to verify, but I'm confident it's unlocked. Thanks CT-AMG!

Yep, I received that message and another message that the system was about to reboot after I removed the card.

Interesting. I would like to hear back from others who have done the install to see if they did or did not get the remove SD message. Please post.

Also, if you received a code please contact dvd in motion to activate. If for some reason you changed your mind please PM me so that I can give your code out to someone else. We only have a limited number for the group buy so, please give them up if you don't want them. THX

Sack5000: If you know of a way to do it for free please post how. I personally am quite happy with the simplicity of the patch and what it accomplished. Do I wish it cost $20? Sure I do but, there are no other options and the cost is still minimal when compared to what the car costs or even AMG Door Pins cost..

To each his own I suppose..

Just did the install and got the remove SD card message and the system rebooted.

I can confirm it works!

It looks like I am the only one that didn't get the message but, maybe I missed it or didn't wait long enough or something? Either way it works for me as well.

Has anyone tried to watch a DVD while driving yet or try any of the other normally locked features to see what else is unlocked?

PS: Dvd in motion emailed me today and indicated only half of the codes I sent out to you guys actually contacted them. If you aren't going to use the codes please let me know you changed your mind so I can send them to other members. THX
