    Are there any Apps available for iOS that would be compatible with Mirrorlink such as Drivelink along with Sygic. I understand Mirrorlink is Android centric, however would love a hack to get my Jailbroken iPhone iOS to mirror a gps app and other mirror link aps onto my 2016 Subaru Legacy's 7 inch NonNav headunit.

    I have used Dissident to allow mirroring while driving on a Honda Civic.

    It also has a 7 inch display... Dissident, may be helpful to you, but it may not exactly be the ideal solution.

    I see you have no other offers for assistance, you might give it a try. I am sure it should work at least in the same manner as it does on my Honda Civic and Honda Hrv.

    Hi Mike, thank you for sharing using Dissident. I downloaded it of Cydia and not to familiar with it. Mind walking me through how to use it please? I also have sygic on my iPhone and would like to be able to utilize...

    My device is no long jailbroken, so I can not open Dissident to get exact usage instructions, but here are some links that might help:

    This one shows a video of the same basic process using a similar app, WatchDog Pro:



    Here is a little more info about the process:

    Basically, you need to set it to that the app on your phone that connects to you car always thinks that it is in the foreground. On the Honda Civic, it is the HondaLink app...You don't have a Honda, so your app will be the one supplied by your car manufacturer.

    Wow,

    Neat tweaks, Thank for your tips and installed both tweaks and washed the video which was really cool. However, Subaru uses a standalone solution called Mirrorlink which is not supported by iOS. That is what makes the Honda an easier and situation be it the headunit and app unlike subaru and starlink/mirrorlink which is only for Android. Unless there is a hack or tweak out there I could run an Android app on my iPhone and VNC would be overkill.

    Unfortunately not to both. Only currently MirrorLink 1.1 and becomes enabled per MirrorLink capable Android Aps via an Android Drivelink...Really frustrating considering my Headhunt is gorgeous and I adore my 2016 Subaru Legacy which comes with a 7inch Display...
