    Good to hear to got it working.

    The switcher adapters have been ready for a while. What was holding us back was that we could'nt find the correct extension cables to suit, so we had to custom make them. They will definately arrive within the next few days.

    Have you ever thought about making like a universal tablet dock for iOS and Android phones with your innovation? So the tablet would be just a touchscreen, battery and your module with a cavity to hold the phone. Basically, the concept would turn any phone into a tablet.

    I heard about this type of concept that I think Motorolla was developing and thought..."That makes more sense that having a separate tablet".

    Something generic that fits an all in one solution would have a greater demand and help you fund your R&D efforts than being restricted to the Car PC community for now.

    Just an idea

    Well, if you have room for a tablet...just use it.

    I don't think you understand my suggestion. Forget about Car PC use for a sec.... You know how many consumers would be interested in turning their smartphone into a tablet without spending a load of cash? The current price for mimics is probably based on the Car PC niche market but with a greater mass market, economies of scale could provide a win win situation for the developer and consumer.

    I completely get what you are saying here and have been thinking of other ways to use the mimics outside of the auto environment. You just need a decent way to power/charge the mimics and touch screen........

    Does mimics work with the latest iPhone version 4S? Apologies in advance if this question has already been asked/answered.

    Thanks,

    I just finished installing the Iphone touch control into this 2011 Dodge Charger built for Hart and Huntington and Dodge Motorsports.


    I used the factory 8.4" touchscreen and the first prototype switching board that allows the factory touch control to remain active when the Iphone is not plugged in.


    Car will be at SEMA and featured on Speed Channel's Car Crazy show.

    Thanks for watching!

    Well even if the hardware works with the 4S, you'll still need a jailbreak, which as of today is not yet ready.
