    Default Screen in front of car.. legal or not?

    Anyone know? Are LCDs in the front of your car illegal? Or do they have to be out of the drivers view?

    I'm pretty sure the LCD screens aren't illegal because our MDX has one right in the middle of the dash for the HVAC, Trip computer, etc... It gets kind of annoying at night though, unless you dim the screen.

    Doesn't matter. Just cuz you see it doesn't mean its legal. I see cars with tint on the front windows all the time, I see cars with neon underglows all the time, I see cars with neon license plate frames all the time. Its just a matter of time before you get a ticket for it. But, its your car- do what you want to it

    Just search for "Highway Traffic Act" on your favorite search engine.

    My understanding is that it can not be in direct view for the driver.

    Only diagnostic tools can be displayed to the driver.

    you can have a movie playing while you are driving as long as the driver can't see it, and all extra lighting things that you do to a car like any neon, washer L.E.D.'s underglow, licence plate neon, headlight conversions, H.I.D. bulbs are all illegal, I asked a cop when i got pulled over at a check stop becasue I have underglow, and he says anything that is not on the car from the factory is illegal. oh well.
