Only thing I could think of would be if you could get some sort of HDMI to svideo adapter and hook a chromecast to the monitor, then use moto g as a wifi hotspot for the chromecast to connect to. Maybe... I don't know how well it will do with full screen mirroring though, I think there are some apps that claim they can cast anything, but not sure how well they work.

The resolution on the dash monitor is probably ridiculously low too so not sure if it would display properly.

Won't work - Chromecast needs an Internet connection, and the device that's acting as the Hotspot can't also be the client that controls the casts. Would work in theory with two devices, one to be the hotspot and the second to act as the Chromecast client, but screen mirroring for Chromecast is still early days, although I think a couple of apps are getting there.
