So, you wish to play videos on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch through your car’s AV system? Most in-car AV systems do not come with an iPhone/iPod dock, so you can’t hook up the iDevice directly to your car’s AV system for video playback. But there is a little solution here, by simply installing the newly announced Scosche sneakPEEK auto in-car A/V cable, then you’re good to go.
The Scosche sneakPEEK auto AV cable is equipped with the required RCA connectors on one end for composite video output that suit any AV system. On the other end it has an iDevice 30-pin dock connector which allows you to hook up your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
The RCA connectors of this cable come in the form of tapered metal and are gold-plated to ensure superior connection without signal loss. The cable itself is high-quality and shielded and offers a generous length of 9 feet, allowing the installer to rout the cable virtually anywhere in the vehicle. The cable should be long enough to reach the backseats of your car, allowing the backseat passengers to hook up their iDevice for video playback through the car’s AV system.
The sneakPEEK auto cable is also integrated with a switch, which allows the user to easily switch between on an external monitor (e.g. the display of your car’s AV system) and the iDevice’s screen. The cable is able to supply 2.1A of power to keep your iDevice charged while it’s connected for video playback.
The sneakPEEK auto cable is now up for order on Scosche.com for $75. It’s definitely advisable to get a pro to install this cable for you for a much neater installation.
