DIY AV Input on OEM monitor
Hey guys, i decided to make a DIY on how to put the av input adapter for oem head units,

(excuse the crap pics)

You will need:
-Oem head unit
-TV Tuner
-Ebay AV input for bmw pre idrive
-Av connections for your device (i found all mine lying around the house)
Firstly, remove all your boot carpet on the nav/tv tuner side.

Plug in Av connection to the White female socket on the tv tuner (dont spend 1 hour working out why the blue cable doesnt want to fit in the av input cables:censor::banghead:)

Connect the av inputs to the cable,
in this case i connected a stereo to mono y adapter so two stereo feeds are combined to the single mono input on the av

run your cables to the desired spot you wish to have your connections

select av on your head unit tv tuner and presto, you have audio and video on your screen

Some shots of it in action, getting iphone jailbroken asap for constant mirroring

i plan on connecting a power to the usb side of the av cable for charging also

That's pretty dope.

Makes me want to go back to my iPhone.

Awesome mod, especially if you want to keep OEM 16:9 screen! If only I didn't have so many dead pixels in mine. :(

Thanks guys haha, I ended up swapping my 4:3 to a 16:9

And found a great app that outputs to the 16:9 unjailbroken

I see a blu-ray player in the future. :eeps:

What I'd really love is if these freaking car manufactures would start pumping out higher rez screens. We have 4.5in cell phones with 720p screens yet 7" Double Din and up to 15" overhead screens are still 480p. :facepalm:

If the Dyanvin unit was 720p, I'd be much more inclined to buy one.

It would work but you wouldn't get a display since there isn't any output of track visual data I'm aware of

It would show movies and such however

It's not the best, bass isn't very good and it doubts a little 'tinny'

hi mate,
I'm now using 4:3 oem head units
just wanna ask how to swap 4:3 to 16:9?
I just purchase 16:9 and the adopter is not the same with the normal oem head units...
Thank you
