whys that ?? runs as a head unit.. i.e. screen dims when you turn on headlights etc.. can even wire up something so i cant play videos in the front when on the move... usually rigged to the handbrake.

Cant see any reason why it'd be illegal other than the police being anal.

I live in the same state that ban talking on your cellphone while driving. If caught it is like points against your license and a hefty fine.

The law around here is like any screen over a certain size is illegal in the dashboard. That is in plain view of the driver. The cops around here are a$$holes.
