Hi guys!


Couple days ago I uploaded three videos to youtube and got no comments yet. just want to hear anything from you guys. Any comments, suggestions...

Tested smartphone in this video is galaxy s3. iPhones not tested. It's probably unable to connect in this system because I use netgear push2tv. Using an apple tv instead of push2tv should make it possible to pair them up I'm pretty sure.

Thanks for watching my videos and your comments in advance.

I think mirroring only works with a handful of devices. One of them is the S3. All the rest are Nokia phones because the people working on the mirroring software are in Europe and I guess Euros love Nokias? Though I don't have a compatible phone, I bet other people would be interested in finding out how you were able to hack your I-mid to get it to mirror your phone. I am waiting until my phone is compatible with the Sony XAV-701HD in my Fit or try to figure out how to get it to mirror to my Nexus 7 I plan to use in the Si.

Awesome, I think he is using the rear camera mod to input video from the netgear push2tv device. When he flips the switch it sends a reverse signal to the imid which turns on the backup cam video feed. The push2tv is connected to the backup cam video wire. Which model push2tv are you using, and did you have to convert HDMI to composite video? Great idea Thanks

Thank you for all the replies guys.

Yes, what I did was hack i-mid and control it with a toggle switch. If you see one of the sticky threads which is "Video on i-mid", you'll notice that it's not that complicated once you understand how you "steal" backup cam signal. On that thread, a dvd player was used to watch movies, however I use HDMI to RCA converter as you can imagine.

This is the actual product I purchased. Really small but works great so far.

And the netgear product is push2tv ptv3000. It works almost perfectly with galaxy s3 but I have no idea about whether it works with other phones like LG, sony or nokia. I bought refurbed netgear for about 30 bucks and another 30 bucks for the converter. An HDMI cable to hook them up and a dual port USB car charger needed to power the system. Well, considering which product fit to my needs, there were a lot of Miracast dongles out there but I was not sure thinking "will the miracast accomplish this mission without any hassle?" I still don't know about that cause I chose netgear instead.

If you go to ebay searching for miracast, there's a bunch of products selling from asia but I'm not sure which one is the right choice to you in particular. One thing that certain is that you should never buy chromecast since it's not for the mirroring.

There is about 1-sec lag on both video and audio as you can see in my videos. But I feel it's okay to me. Nothing bothers me while I'm driving with gps navigation as far as I'm concerned.

If you plan to DIY on wired mirroring, it's easier. You don't need a netgear nor miracast, but you need an MHL cable to hook it up to HDMI converter directly. It probaly gives you reliable connection than the wireless one without any lag.

Thanks guys.
Hope you succeed if you plan to DIY!

Hey, starsky, I see that you've been here several months, but let me welcome you to the site, anyway.

I've been considering a new paint job for my car. How do you like this?



Sorry, couldn't resist. haha

Hey, midbass, welcome to 9th gen.

I'm not much for electronic gimcrackery, but that's a cool mod, if I do say so, myself.
