Watching video etc on the screen

Post by maverick007 » Thu Sep 12, 2019 3:23 pm

Hi Guys

Yes i know it's dangerous watching something while driving but is it possible to play video or you tube etc through my android phone onto the screen?
I have spare time when i cam sitting in the car for periods of time, where it would be great to be able to connect up the phone with the USB and watch downloaded content on the screen.

Is this doable??

You can do this using odb11 or carista AFAIK.

Yes, using an OBD device you just turn on video in motion and it works while driving along but when the car is stationary it works without any alterations.

You need to have nav pro for obd or carista to work video in motion otherwise your system won’t play video. There is another way using floating apps. It’s in the forums here somewhere
