the problem is on your pda not on the head unit
what's your pda?
I don't really think this is possible thought
I currently have a PDA GPS unit. Windows mobile 5.
I also have a Dual XDVD8181 Radio with built in 7"LCD Screen. I would like to find a way to connect the GPS/PDA unit to the "radio" so that I can view the directions and map on the LCD screen. I do not need to be able to use the LCD screen to input any Data, I just would like to be able to VIEW the Maps and Directions on the Larger LCD Screen.
If any one has any ideas , that would be great.
The unit has these inputs and output connections:
2 - Video outputs RCA's
3- Video inputs RCA's
1 - iPLUG interface cable
2 Composite video outputs
Here is a link to the Manufactures website:
Any help with this project would be greatly apprieciated!
Many PDAs these days have VGA output, so you may want to get VGA-Composite first to use it with this device.

You should get VGA-Composite first to use it with this device.
Hi, i'm new to this forum, however, do you have a car pc installed? or just wanting to use the screen for the satnav
if you were looking to use the gps of your pda/phone i found this useful software http://franson.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3973 GPSgate (not sure if its been said on this forum already?)
also, a remote desktop app, or some kind of remote control app should allow you to view your pda screen via a pc screen.
i can't see anyway of doing it without a computer tho, apart from a large magnifying glass
