Re: Pioneer AVIC-Z2 DVD Function

I installed my pioneer avic z2 DVD/Navi myself and I realized that the wire that connects to the parking break is just a power wire that comes on when u pull the parking break. I think, all you have to do is to connect it to any other power wire that will be constantly provides the on power while driving. I'll try it out tomorrow and let you know!

How do i get my movies to show on my dvd/cd player in my car. say something about the brakes.

Depending on what DVD/navigation system you have, it may be wired to only play movies while the parking brake is engaged.
I have an after-market Pioneer AVIC-9DVD Nav system, and that's the "default" means of operation. My screen is in-dash. Some places can install a a bypass switch, but that ultimately introduces a safety risk.
In situations where the screens are mounted in the rear of the vehicle only, it should be okay. I'm guessing you have a factory-installed setup where the screen is in the front with the driver.

See videos wile drive in AVH-P5000

These DVD systems have a wire that is connected to the parking brake and gets grounded when the parking brake is engaged to prevent the driver from watching video while driving. Once you engage the parking brake, you can watch the video. The video output still works for an external monitor while driving. These are precautions to keep you safe while driving. somebody watching a video while driving is much more likely to get into an accident.

Pioneer avic x1

GPS has global coverage. I see your problem is sourcing the map of Australia because the x1 comes only with Europe maps on CD. there may be a possibility the S2 maps work on the x1. Try contacting Pioneer Australia
