    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    Hey its my thread! Lol... I actually have more pics that didnt make it to that thread, I'll sift through them . I did watch the youtube video above and it looks promising but also can be faked. I have a MHL adapter (w/hmdi to rca adapter) and it can mirror my Galaxy 2, Note 2 & Note 3 screen to any secondary screen but with no touch panel control, I had this is my DTS. He could of had that same MHL adapter & just had the phone off camera view, tapping the corresponding buttons at the same time. I only suggest the fakeness due to lack of links on the youtube.

    Apparently the Mimicsx2 has had some delivery issues over the last year

    He says he's using some other component too in the back of his radio he probably has the lockpick from coastal electronics but anything from iPhone 5 and on will not work with the lockpicks using video I used to be able to do everything he's doing without anything else streams everything from his phone!

    Thanks for the links. I was also thinking to myself how come there is not more videos of this project showed working with OEM screens..

    Even if this doesnt work, i think the best would be to have us just mirror our phones on the stock OEM screen. What MHL and hdmi to RCA converter are you using on yours? You have this working on the NAV screen? Any pics\videos ?

    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    I traded that car in, I really Hate I have no pictures of that in action, but I can install this behind my wifes aftermarket double din and give you a idea on how it behaves, here is what I have. the middle adapter in the packet is for Note 2 and above phones. I got the MHL off ebay and the HDMI adapter from Amazon.

    thanks for checking.

    Anyone want to pull their unit out, or pulling it out shortly and can pop off the back cover and tell us?

    WOW great research!!!!
    I will order the MimicsX2 and see if I get it. Not really worried about it, worst case I have to do a chargeback with my CC company.

    ----------

    I have ordered it just now



    And paid for expedited shipping to California.
    I will update when I receive it.

    ----------

    CustomGadz just sent me an email saying it will ship in 2 days.

    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    nice.. keep us in the loop. My NAV should be here next week. Would be great if this piece will actually work !

    ----------

    Also Rob what phone do you have? I know the one requirement is to already have your phone mirrored onto the nav display.

    I will 100% update this thread, possibly start a new thread with pics of the process.
    I have an iPhone 5 put might end up hooking this to an Apple TV so I can wirelessly airplay the iPhone to the ATV which will feed into the mimics and onto the display.
    Not sure yet, need to think of what I WANT to show/interact with on the Nav and go from there.

    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    Yea, its prob. best to start new thread.. ATV should work, but then you need wireless. At least with the Droids you can use the MHL adapter like posted above.. My issue is using both iphone + droid. My wife as iphone I have droid.. Dont think there is a clean way to do this !!!

    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    I will continue to update this thread until my unit arrives...

    Its been 9 days since I placed my order. Dave said it would ship the next day, and it apparently will be shipped Monday.
    Dave gave me a story about why it took so long...

    Rob,
    Hi. i do appologize for the delay. I found out why you package didnt get dispatched and that was because your order was missing a smapp optional extension adapter we include now. Anyway, I came into the office today and found your order, included the adapter and already packed it up for you.

    I will personally ship it tommowow (Monday) for you.

    Your order status has been updated and you should of got a tracking number. Please wait until tommorow before checking the tracking number.

    Regards,
    -Dave

    I will be checking the shipment this week, with the express shipment I expect it to arrive by Friday.
