Can you post more details about this install? How are you getting iPhone video to the car? Looks great!

Looks like he is using a Slingbox to push the tv feed to the iphone, then using the interface to put the iphone feed to the car. Pretty slick!

Here in Germany, the Slingbox is a lifesaver.....

With my limited knowledge of Slingbox, I can understand how the tv feed can get to the iPhone, but how is the video going from the iPhone to the car? I have the smartphone integration kit but to my knowledge, you can't play videos that way. Must be some other hardware/software? Is this a Slingbox feature to play iPhone on car?

I've been wanting to get TV as well and this looks like an awesome idea, however I just checked slingbox's site and according to their info, 3G is not supported when using an iPhone I guess that means no tv unless it works well on edge

How are you pealing off just the video - OR is the media integration unit also passing audio to the OEM A/V system? Are you using the Analog AUX in the center console?

ATT 3G here in US blocks the iphone using slingbox thru 3G, only Wifi is allowed, but they allow 3G for slingbox for other phones..??...to me, it doesn't make sense. So, in order for the iphone to use 3G for slingbox, u must jailbreak the phone, and install the 3G unrestrictor to " fool" the iphone that u are using Wifi ( actually u using 3G)....it works real well......before i got alek's great product, i only watch thru the small iphone screen, and now...using the oem screen.....is amazing.....

... I presume this will work in a 325iA as well? The iDrive system should be the same, right?

Does the iphone A/V cable allow you to charge the phone while you are running slingbox? If not will your iphone run out of battery very quickly?

I have an iPhone 3G running slingbox as well. Will seriously consider purchasing an A/V kit from aleks if it is practical enough.

Using the Apple component connector, you can plug the USB into your USB port and it will charge your ipod/iphone.

System works great!

you can always charged it via USB port or you can add a Dock for your convenience that will charge your phone / ipod as well

To get slingbox to use 3G all you need to do is jailbreak your iphone then install an application called 'voipover3g'
