More or less what I thought. I don't think I'll bother to be honest. Can't see me using it often enough. Can only use it while stationary so not a lot of use to me. As I have a 16 inch laptop I can use for the same purpose it's kind of redundant.
I don't think I had a "choose video" option, but after I get home from my London trip, I might have another fiddle around with it.

I agree. However there are tricks to dodge the "only while stationary" limit; they vary depending on system, but some have done so to successfully use an iPhone satnav, and others to receive a reversing camera video feed.

I've never bothered with it for the same reasons as you- anything I could plug into it already has a better screen. My late 2006 car may feel new to me, but in tech terms it's ancient- the first iPhone came out in 2007!
