After you’ve followed the appropriate steps to get your device connected to the compatible Alpine system, you will be able to mirror the mobile device's image and watch stored video and video apps (like Netflix) on the navigation head unit's touchscreen monitor (the parking brake of your vehicle must be engaged). Stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your smartphone device can be heard through your speaker system without the parking brake engaged; however, there is no song/artist information display unless the parking brake is engaged. There is no touchscreen control from the Alpine head unit for this feature; you will still continue to use your Android device to select content, apps, and control playback.
ANDROID SMARTPHONE COMPATIBILITY
5-Pin Android Smartphone: Use all three cables to connect your Android smartphone to your compatible Alpine navigation receiver. The 5-foot HDMI cable and 8" microUSB-to-USB cable plug into the HDMI and USB ports on back of your compatible Alpine head unit. The HDMI cable and microUSB-to-USB cable then plug into the included 9-inch microUSB-to-HDMI MHL adapter cable. The MHL adapter cable then plugs into your Android smartphone's 5-pin connector.
11-Pin Android Smartphone: An 11-pin Android smartphone (like the Samsung Galaxy S3/4/5 and Note II/III/IV) will connect the same way as a 5-pin Android smartphone would, but you will need an additional 3rd party 5-pin to 11-pin adapter (sold separately) to connect between the included MHL adapter and your Android smartphone.
