Default Miracast receiver?

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a usb powered miracast receiver for my cars head unit. Anyone have any experience with these things?

Have you had a chance to test this yet? I can't seem to find it for sale anymore anywhere It was only $20 on Best Buy's website earlier last month...ugh!

I have been eyeing this one in the mean time: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00H2D...=IEZL8WC4NRBGI

I bought that Tronsmart for $30. I know Chromecast may enable screen mirroning at some point, but the extended display looks very useful to me to use with my notebook. Anyway, I live in Brazil, so it's gonna take a couple of mounths to arrive here..

Months?! Yikes! We are spoiled here in the US. Well if I happen to get mine before you get yours I'll post here and let you know how it is.

Nah...
That's miracast speed, nothing we can do, really. I saw somewhere Asus is making a "gaming" model that uses a dual-band wireless to get instant mirroring.

It's not gonna be cheap, people say it's going to cost $100+ =/

Can confirm the rocketfish works. It took a few attempts to connect but once connected it worked fine .

I just ordered the Lenovo WD100-SL, will post again and update whether if it works when I receive it. It's supposedly compatible with android 4.2.2 and above.

I have the rocketfish receiver and it works on all my devices on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz but on the moto x it only works on 2.4ghz. Shame because 5ghz has better picture , no artifacts, and if you mirror on 5ghz you can still use 2.4 for WiFi for streaming .
