Thanks for the very warm welcome guys. I'll look into the Southern Highlands drive. My parents live in Bowral and I lived down there myself for seven years prior to coming to the Central Coast.
Yes.. New iDrive plays movies perfectly but only when the handbrake is on. The movie continues to play once the handbrake is off, but audio only. Brake comes back on, the video starts again.
It has a split screen mode as well, so you can say display car stats etc whilst the movie keeps playing on the other half of the screen.
It also has extra buttons on the controller.
