Just a note to anyone going down this path: The eBay iPhone composite video cables that claim 100% compatibility with iPhone 3G V2.2 do NOT work. I bought 2 and neither would work more than 15 seconds. I bought the real thing and it works every time. So spend the extra dough in the beginning to avoid paying for trash cables.
TV comes to the iPhone! Just another example of how the iPhone is slowly turning into a nice replacement for the CarPC.
I've put some of my thoughts about two products for video output into the following video.
Rough steps are:
1. Jailbreak your iPod/iPhone using QuickPwn
2. Use Cydia to load Screensplitr, or TVOut. If you want to control the iPod from a browser wirelessly, load Veency and follow instructions in the video.
Props to Plutinosoft's Sylvain for writing this app. Can you figure out how to hook up a touchscreen via bluetooth or something?
I'm also going to post this step as a separate thread in the mobile mesh forum.
Just downloaded a radio app that has most of the radiostations clear channel owns. It's nice because I can use it to listen to the local radio stations through the iphone.
Location: app store
Name: iheart radio
Also it works well with screenspltr.
I know OBD-II isn't the main reason many people decide to get into carpcs, but The iPhone/iPot has that capability with data logging thanks to Rev and Rev Lite(the free version.)
you can check it out here http://www.devtoaster.com/products/rev/index.html and even order the required hardware from their store http://www.devtoaster.com/store/
i have no idea if it plays well with Screensplitter.
Worst paart is the price
so whats the status of this project?
Yeah, it is kind of pricey! But it is at the very least an option to connect a mobile device to the car. I am surprised there is an option at all at this point and I think it is indication of the amount of development and experimentation that is going on around this mobile device.
