  • car iphone dup kit

    ok, i just bought this, and i have a few questions.
    first off, from what i gathered, you can control the iphone from the touchscreen. when i plugged it in, unless i was watching youtube, the touchscreen would be blank, and when youtuvbe open the iphone blank. whats teh deal?

    Isn't the touchscreen ON the iPhone? Your post makes no sense. Try again?

      You need 1 of 2 apps for your iphone in addition to the kit you purchased.

      The first option is TVOut which you select which apps you wish to have displayed on the monitor. With this option the iphone will output its display to the monitor but the iphone's screen will be blank.

      The second option is ScreenSplitr. This will duplicate the IPhone's display to the monitor....so what ever you see on the iphone, you will see on the monitor. The downside to this option is the iphone's performance is slowed down alot. Still functional but slow.

      With both options you still use the IPhone's touchscreen to sellect apps, etc.

      As it stands right now, there are no apps for the IPhone or Itouch that let you have direct control over it from and external touchsreen.

      I hope this clears up everything for you.

        Also note that you need to jailbreak your iPhone for the TVOut and ScreenSplitr options. When you do that, you will get an additional non-Apple app store called Cydia. Look up either app and install them.

        Jailbreaking your phone takes just seconds. Use a program called Blackra1n to do it.

                    For the novelty? I mean it really is a good idea... it just needs better support. Typically when something like this happens, it's usually because the user didn't put enough research into what they were buying.

                    Hey it happens, like the time I bought a skype wifi phone...

                      TV Out has an option that makes the iPhone screen into a touchpad and shows a little red dot on the big screen. That lets you control the onscreen stuff as if it were a touchpad.

                          thats why you research before you buy.
