Can't browse USB media while vehicle in motion!

It's little annoying that browsing function disables when vehicle starts to move. Since the US model does not have built in GPS I'm thinking the head units gets a signal from somewhere else. Does anyone have any idea how this function is triggered? I'm thinking it might be as simple as cutting an input lead to the head unit? Any thoughts?

Its for this reason alone that I've always preferred to just use an auxiliary connection for music. I typically find it easier to control music selection right from my Ipod, than whatever infotainment system the car has. Unfortunately this doesn't keep your devices charged, but they have decent battery life. I'd also like to know if anyone finds a legit workaround.

Can be triggered by the speed signal. On many Toyota and Lexus a switch between that wire will do the job. Very handy... but not safe.

Would you know which is the speed signal cable in the radio harness. How can it be not safe. Thanks for any info in advance.

Found this info on a Highlander forum, this worked on a 2015 highlander. Will have to try it on my CHR. Sorry, I still can't post pictures
