    Wow, I was looking into intergrating my droid 3 into my car and found your post. Im working on a modification where the primary screen in the car actually controls the phone which creates a cleaner setup. Considering that your setup is almost like mine, I think you might be interested in the module as well.

    Just search " hdmi to composite converter" on amazon.com

    They are around $30.
