Iphone5 connected to Nav Screen, finally!

So, I finally connected my Iphone5 to the NAV System. I was successful in mirroring the Iphone5 to the NAV screen both, wire and wireless. This set up is for those who have a TV function in their vehicle with the option of an AV input. Thanks to TerminatorX5 for his write up on how to connect an Android phone to the NAV System. I am using the same procedures, but the Iphone5 needed different equipment for it to work properly.

I made my first YouTube Video, IPhone5 connected to BMWX5 - YouTube that shows the quality of the connection. I hope you all like this. For more specific instructions, just ask.

Here is everything you need for the Ipnone5 set up:


For a wire set up:

1. HDMI-to-RCA adapter- Amazon.com: Etekcity® HDMI to AV Composite RCA CVBS Video + Audio Converter For TV PS3 VHS VCR DVD: Electronics
2. HDMI CABLE
3. Lightning to HDMI adaptor- Lightning Digital AV Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

For a wireless set up, you won’t need the Lighting to HDMI adaptor, but you will also need the following:

1. Apple TV 3rd generation
2. A router, any old router will do. This is because the Apple TV can only be connected to the Phone thru a router.
3. A Cat5 cable to connect the router and the Apple TV.
This is everything connected and tested on my living room TV before connecting it to the vehicle.

I had to use the CAT5 cable between the router and the Apple TV because the images were freezing when I tried to play video.
This is me taking a picture using my phone which was being mirrored on the screen, lol.


Note: For power, everything is connected using an AC/DC power converter. I don’t recommend this power supply because you are using the cigarette lighter which the only way to turn it off is by manually disconnecting it. I am researching a better way to supply power to the router, Apple TV, and the HDMI-to-RCA converter.

Wow good job! I fail to see the practical benefit of this. Does this setup broadcast whatever is on your iPhone screen onto the Nav screen? Netflix perhaps or google maps?

Thanks,

Yes, it broadcast whatever is on the iPhone screen onto the Nav screen, including the sound that will come thru the vehicle speakers.
