    It's 3am so forgive me if I'm not thinking straight.

    Is it at all possible one could use an iPhone to project the images from a car backup camera? I know the cams are available wireless now also. I just have this vision but can't think it through. Any ideas on this?

    Also, I'm wondering if anyone's had any luck with getting their iPhone's display onto their car navigation screen. I'm wondering about 'TV Out' from Cydia. If that could be used somehow to integrate.

    A few Youtubes I'm looking at: iPhone's video recorder live on Nav screen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0Fnh1eav_k&feature=channel

    I think he means have another camera at the back, and use the iPhone as a display rather than using the iPhone as the camera.

    OK - Has anyone gotten their iPhone display, album art, etc. to display on the Nav? I'd love to know how it was done. But it seems not many are interested in getting iPhone video, etc. integrated with Nav screens.
