having your android phone displayed on your unit

Recommended Posts

I am trying to see if there is a way to have your phone display come up on your screen either using the usb, or bluetooth. and if possible, having full control from your unit to control your android phone. anyone know any ideas?

thats not true. your phone has to have a video out. Infuse came with a little plug that has an hdmi output to view on a tv. The problem is that your phone produces a digital(high deff) signal, and the reciever, my avh-4300 only accepts an analog signal. Basically, they do sell a convertor on amazon, but you would have to have the piece from the phone to an hdmi cable out and then a converter that accepts hdmi in and converts it to analog signal or a yellow video cable and a red and white auio out, which then connects to the head unit, at least thats how its capable on my avh 4300. A couple issues. 1. No on screen phone control...it comes in under the a/v input. 2. the piece that plugs into my phone seems very fragile and i dont trust it to stay pluged in, with it being micro usb. 3. you need an inverter to have a plug for the signal convertor to plug into, like a home plug because they r mostly used in home a/v setups. 4. its a lot of stuff to run and hide and such. why not buy a broken ipod touch off of craigslist. And by broken i mean a slightly cracked screen. a newer gen if possible. 1oo bucks or less, and the ipod chord from pioneer so it has good signal speed and such. and then simply root your android to tether(or creat a wifi hotspot) for free. and you have everything your android does but on screen...as well as appradio etc.

to tether an android youtube rooting with super one click. Hope that helps!
