Has anyone successfully ran their Photon Q in "mirror display mode" via the micro-HDMI out port?

What hardware/cables are needed and can you provide an internet link for vendor/price?


I have a Infiniti G35 sedan and my DVD screen will take video/audio input from the three female ports in the armrest which are Yellow-White-Red.
I would like to display the Photon Q screen on my Infiniti G's DVD screen and hear the Photon Q audio through my Infiniti's G speakers.
Here is a pic of the center console female ports:


Thank you in advance for any assistance.

FYI, the audio would be really easy. You can just use the 3.5mm headphone jack with 2 RCA plugs on the other end, and audio is done.

Video... Not sure how that would work. Either way, that's 'composite' - so it'll look pretty awful.

You can get audio via the jack on top, and forget about Video, unless you use a really-expensive converter, as the HDMI video that comes out will be 540P YUV, whereas that composite input in your car is 480I Y/C.

I don't need Hi-Def video. I just want the Photon's Navigation displayed on my car's dash display.
How much is a converter and where can I get one?

Will a cable like this one below even display the video on my dash? How will it look?

In conjunction with this male micoHDMI to female HDMI cable:

You don't have component in (which that cable is). You have composite input to the stereo, you'll probably need some sort of converter while hoping that the phone doesn't require HDCP (I doubt it). Let us know!

Edit: Something like this might be exactly what you would need.
