    I think he's wanting to find a way to display it directly onto the infotainment screen versus using a second screen.

    Unfortunately I never could figure it out. I activated Nav in Motion through Forscan to allow inputs while driving, but the component cables on Sync 2 MFT never would connect the display properly. Haven't really tried it since converting to Sync 3

    Exactly what I am talking about, streaming to the car display to avoid other devices, tablets, phones...

    That *should* work.

    Same question except cast to gauge pods. I already have OLD LINK MY to my phone/tablet, just looking for a good wireless gauge pod to add to the A pillar.
