    General question: Do they make an hdmi to a/v adapter?? I am sure they do in other ways, but my head unit only has a/v input.

    You beat me to this great mod. I currently have a car pc setup in my 300 that I will be converting to Android when I get my Bionic. I will be hooking it up to a 7in HDMI touchscreen monitor. I was looking at using one of the HDMI docks but like your car dock mod. The only thing I am trying to figure out is if I can get the usb touch screen to work. Does any one know if a usb touchscreen will be reconized using the 99 dollor multimedia dock. Anyway great mod and keep us posted.

    It should be, if the touchscreen emulates mouse input.

    Hi there. My Camel here. Just finishing my eval of the Bionic and i guess i'll keep it (had to give up my Blackberry Storm). I hope i made the right decision. still a bit shy about the battery life issues. i'm sure i'll figure it all out.

    I just wanted to comment as to how cool this mod is. i think you've hit on the right idea. now i'm going to look into this idea for my Toshiba Thrive Tab. Quite honestly i hadn't even considered the idea.

    Great job!

    Link to HDMI to composite converter:Amazon.com: HDMI to Composite /S-Video Converter 3RCA CRT TV CVBS: Electronics

    You can find it cheaper on Ebay.

    If you have an aftermarket headunit, there should be inputs for both video and audio cables. If you are installing it on a stock head unit, you can use a composite to 3.5mm audio cable and plug into the AUX port. If you don't have an AUX, you have to install an FM modulator.

    It would be sweet if you got it to work with your touch screen. Hope you can figure it out! On a side note, I hope Pioneer comes out with a head unit like the one they have for i*hones. Link : http://pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/AppRadio

    Sorry, I do not sell any of these parts needed for the conversion. Most stereo shops should have the majority of the parts needed except for the 2 converters. They should also be able to install them to replicate my setup. As for resolution, the HDMI to composite converts to 480i. My car screens are 16:9 so it stretches the signal to fill the screen. Hope this helps.

    Translated in Google translator to Chinese:

    對不起,我不賣任何轉換所需要的這些部件。大多數音響店應該有除2轉換器所需要的零件大部分。他們也應該能夠安裝它們複製我的設置。決議,複合轉換為 480i的HDMI。我的車屏幕是16:9,所以它綿延填滿整個屏幕的信號。希望這有助於。

    By the way, I'm not Chinese.

    Aftermarket head unit. In-dash DVD screen, but the CD/DVD player part no longer works because it has had its fair share of use. Just figured if I had a converter, I could use my hdmi cable for my phone into the audio/video and I can display video on my screen.

    Youre using that converter off of amazon? When I use the same exact one in my Infiniti, I get a very grainy image with my Bionic. Any ideas!?
