Yes

Not done it myself yet but AFAIK, from the manual, it will play as a DVD when stationary but just the sound when moving.

Maybe a stupid question, but will it not kill the battery if the car isn't running. Am I missing the reason behind why a car can play DVDs?

The engine can be running, it's just the handbrake that needs to be on as far as I know

To stop the driver watching a good movie, when doing about 70 on the M25.

But when would you want to watch a DVD in your car with the engine running, but not moving???

To help protect battery charge the audio unit will auto turn off (with a 5 minutes warning) if 30 minutes has elapsed and the engine is not started.

Garage
I tried it and especially the sound quality is quite good. You can play audio while the car is moving so it works quite well for dvds of concerts and music in general where you don't really need a picture.
