    Default iPad movie to car monitor

    Ok here is the question
    What do I need

    I want a flip down monitor in my car don't need a DVD player I want my iPad to plug in like in the front area of car and the movie shows on monitor with sound using car speakers or wireless headsets
    I would be using a iPad 4 and iPad 2 mostly
    How can I hook the iPad to the monitor to display the video ?

    I'd just get a mount of some kind for an iPad... no 'second screen' needed...

    To get sound to the car speakers you probably have to have an Aux jack near wherever the iPad was located.

    Depending on the flip down TV you have and what it's inputs were, couldn't you get one if those 30 pin/lightning to component or hdmi converters to plug into the iPad and the appropriate cable to go to the TV. Not ideal though.

    Another thought would be to get an Apple TV that you can leave plugged into the flip down TV. Then use airplay to get video to the TV. I think the ATV can set up an adhoc wireless network (but you'd need to verify this) that the iPad could then connect to so that airplay would work.

    The more that I thought about it I prob would need a head unit the supports iPhone or ipad and has a video pass thru so the monitors hook to head unit and the ipad would connect just to the head unit and video / sound would be passed thru the head unit to the monitor and speakers

    The iPad does not have a "video pass through" capability that I'm aware of... just AirPlay. There may be an in-car entertainment system that is AirPlay ready... I've never looked for one...

    The right mount takes seconds, as does plugging audio into an Aux input on a car head-unit... but you've already dismissed that as too cumbersome...

    Well two kids one ipad I can hear I can't see already lol even if I get another iPad then the movies can't be in sync on both of them so then headphones wires wires and more wires .. That is the simple solution thou

    After looking video will pass to the head unit the head unit allows additional monitor video out so hook ipad to head unit via there USB iphone cable and it will pass video and music

    Ya I thought about this way also maybe ill have to upgrade to iPad 5 or mini 2 and pass my ipad down the line lol

    I'm pretty handy installing car audio .. Head units .. Speakers .. Amps sub etc so I might just go that route also I guess it depends when I see what kind of work I'm gonna be dealing with lol
