Anyone else notice the AV (Y,R,W) component connections on the pics showing the backside of the center column?

Any ideas what those would be for?

That's weird. Those clearly are RCA jacks for composite video/left channel audio/right channel audio but there's no video monitors. I doubt they'd tie in to the infotainment unit on the dash. No mention of them in the feature list. Maybe they're just something unique to the demo car.

They are input for the infotainment system.
You will have an "AUX" mode for input of video and audio.
I have the identical inputs in the center console of my G37x.
You can google it for pics and description.

I'm guessing it has to be in "Park" for the video to display?

What are you guys talking about?

It's simple.
AUX mode on the only screen available, the one in the center of the dash, displays whatever you put into the AUX inputs.

Even IF there is a "lockout" while moving, it will easily be defeated.

Oooooo.... That would mean I can drive an SS and play PS3. So I would be in an SS driving a car with AWD and DCT on the PS3!

It may be unique to the show car. However if they carry the option to do so, like with VE you can either have factory fitted or dealer fitted a roof mounted screen. My mate has the same looking set up in his HSV Senator (VE).
So in theory yes you could plug a PS3 but why would you when it is all about PS4 :D

I know theres some sort of switch people install to activate screen play while driving. Don't remember the exact name but i just remember it being a bunch of blue wires and a toggle switch.

On a manual car there was a switch on the parking brake that had to be wired hot. Not sure what the override is on an auto.

Isnt there a tie in with the speed sensor where as soon as you get it out of park and it also senses the car moving so it just lock the screen out of video mode. And if you cut out or disable one of the wires for the senors mess around with the gps unit? I mean it would be awesome for some to have some video going but not safe and fair for others on the roads. I'd be the party pooper to agree to only have video playing while in park.
