playing video on screen?

I just bought a 2013 Ford Focus Titanium and I love the car. I have my IPhone 5 synched up with it and I also copied all my music to a USB stick I keep plugged in so I can listen at any time.

My question is that since it seems to have capabilities to be able to play video via the RCA jacks, is it possible to play video from my IPhone 5 to the screen, or even use the USB stick to play video?

I haven't tried it yet, but I believe you can only use the video input RCA's in the center console and the car has to be in park. You can now get a LockPick that unlocks that feature so you can have video in motion, but you still have to use the RCA inputs to feed the video in.

Where can I find more info on the LockPick you mention? sounds like a cool feature. I'd like to be able to play videos for my daughters on long rides.

Seems a bit pricey compared to other options. For 300 dollars I could get two portable dvd players to keep my kids quite with in the back.

I'll try to do some testing this week and see what it can and can't do.

It does more than just unlock the video, it also unlocks the nav in motion and allows the camera to be viewed in any gear not just reverse.

But since I don't have the NAV system, it would just give me video in motion and extra inputs. I'll have to look into it and other options. Trying to find a way to keep the kids quite on a long road trip.
