Would have been cool if the CD player was really a DVD player. My brother wanted a work around the other day when we were on a road trip so he could watch TV on it through my phones slingbox app...lol

Not really a "neat trick" that's hidden or anything - but this is my first car that has the ability to have the defrost and upper passenger/face vents on at the same time. Thank God someone finally figured that out.

I read in the manual, I have not the page right now, but it said it's possible to play videos on the screen if the car is stopped. If the car is running, you hear only the sound. With a DVD it doesn't function, but I'll test with a CD (avi maybe ?) and see what happens.

P.S. I will come back with the page number once I arrive at home.

I really liked this feature too. I keep a photo of me and my girl there. I forget about it and it is a kinda nice surprise every now and then. Plus she always melts when she sees it.....which makes the drive a lot better, wink wink

I didn't know it until this evening. You can have BT connection not only "one at a time", but "multiple at the time". In fact, I had my cell phone and my iPod BT connected in the same time. Sure, when you speak on the phone, everything else is mute, but once you finished, you can continue to listen to the iPod music through BT. THAT'S GREAT ! I did not tested yet the video, but it will come.

P.S. And yes, the parking technology is working great ! Even better I thought it can ! I love the use of vocal comands also.
P.P.S. Video information : pages 32-36 of MyFord Touch Supplement book.

There is a video input jack located in the center console.
Are you doubting that it is actually connected to anything?

You can't play video through a usb cord, much to my displeasure :(

Someone needs to find a work around to the video while moving, as it stands, it doesn't have much value. I'm never gonna idle my car so I can watch a movie. I'll just watch it on the tiny ipod screen.

Also note I don't plan on watching movies while driving, but I did want to hook up a snes for roadtrips and the like, for the passengers.
