Default 2004 Accord dvd player

Hi,

So I am all ready to purchase a 2004 Honda Accord EXL V4 with
navigation. The question being, how hard would it be to get the
Navigation system to start playing DVD's? And would it have been
really hard for Honda to do it in the first place?

How much would the whole deal cost? The Accord that I am buying is
with all the standard options that were provided in a 2004 Accord EXL
V4.

Thanks.

A V4? I could swear 4 cylinders don't come in the V format.

I assume you mean converting the nav itself to play the
DVDs. Basically impossible. The nav's DVD is dedicated
for the nav. You would have to add DVD video software
to it's embedded OS. So unless you're familiar with
video programming for Microsoft embedded OSes ...

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it illegal to have
a DVD system where the screen is visible to the driver?

> How much would the whole deal cost?


Not much to add but the legal liabilities are mind
blowing. Think about the settlement for the family
of a person killed because the other driver was
watching a movie while driving.

I have done work programming w/embedded OS's.. but its a been a
while.. Just not sure if the specs (hardware) of the nav system would
support it. I could look more into it and find out.. and I am sure if
it could be done, it's probably done.. i just couldn't find enough
materials online for it. A lotta people have put up sayng that it
could be done, but not too much other info.

As far as i m concerned, its illegal to watch it, not have it. Just
like its not illegal to have a cell phone in the car, its illegal to
use it while driving. I am sure if I decide to watch dvd's while
driving (would never do that) then it would be illegal. I have seen
cars w/a dvd player in the dash board screen.


Anyone have experience with playing DVD's in a 2004 Accord EXL
w/navigation? cost? feasibility?

Thanks.

But it is a very good reason for HONDA not to do it (which
was part of your question).
