HI Guys,

Just thought i'd let you know i've successfully managed to connect my ITouch to my IDrive Display WITH the Audio going through my speakers too....:thumbup:

If you want to do this too you WILL need to have an aftermarket DVD System with AUX IN (audio + video) and also a 'Jailbroken' IPhone or ITouch.

Here's how :
1st Jailbreak your ITouch / IPhone with 'Blackra1n' or 'Redsn0w'
2nd Next via Cydia or Rock ....Install 'TVOut2 "Mirror" TV Out' V1.0.9 onto your ITouch/IPhone (This activates the TVOut Function which Apple have disabled on ur IPhone/ITouch)
3rd Next you will need a compatible AV Cable to connect to your IPhone/ITouch to give you AV Out....
..................You need to make sure the cable you buy is compatible with your ITouch/IPhone software version (mine is V3.1.2)
..................I bought the one in the pic above which allows Charging of your ITouch/IPhone too ....
4th Finally. Connect the AV Cable to your AUX IN in your car then run TVOUT on your ITouch/IPhone to setup the display orientation & size then run ANYTHING you like !!

Here's some piccies.......:D

Here's the ITouch Main Menu

You can actually use this for ANY AV Source long you you have the right cable, jailbroken ITouch/IPhone and the TVOut 2 software.

For example here is my ITouch connected to my 50 inch Plasma TV .... :)
