Features

Smartphone Mirroring Module: The Beuler SPA400 is a smartphone mirroring module which lets you mirror content from your Apple iOS device with Lightning connector or Android OS device with microUSB connector to the screen of an in-dash car receiver or rear seat entertainment system with either an HDMI or Composite video/stereo RCA input. You'll be able to mirror the display of your compatible Apple iOS or Android device, watch select video content, listen to audio from stored music and music apps, as well as display navigation maps and hear voice prompts from the screen of your in-dash receiver or rear seat entertainment system.

Note: Most in-dash car receivers require that the vehicle's parking brake be engaged before they will display video on the built-in screen.

Smartphone Connectivity via USB: The Beuler SPA400 smartphone mirroring module connects to your compatible Apple iOS or Android device via USB, using a Lightning-to-USB cable or microUSB-to-USB cable (sold separately). An Android device will also require the connection of the included 39" stereo minijack cable from the Android device's headphone jack to the smartphone mirroring module's 3.5mm Mic Input. It is compatible with Apple iOS devices that feature a Lightning connector (not compatible with 30-pin Apple devices) and Android OS devices that feature a microUSB connector (not compatible with miniUSB or USB-C).

  • Initial Apple Setup:
    • Plug in Apple iOS device and wait for 5 seconds.
    • Accept trust message that appears on Apple iOS device's screen.
    • Wait 10 seconds for the Apple iOS device to mirror.
  • Initial Android Setup:
    • Android phone needs to be in Developer Mode - Go into Settings/About Device and keep tapping "Build Number" until Developer mode is enabled (can take up to 7 taps).
    • Turn On USB Debugging mode.
    • Plug in USB cable and stereo minijack cable for video and audio mirroring.

HDMI & Analog AV Output: The Beuler SPA400 features an HDMI output, along with a composite video output and stereo RCA output. The HDMI output consists of an HDMI jack and an included 39" HDMI cable which plugs into the smartphone mirroring module and the HDMI input of your in-dash receiver or rear seat entertainment system. The analog AV output consists of a male composite video connector and male stereo RCA connectors within the included 39" Power/AV harness that plug into the AV input of your in-dash receiver or rear seat entertainment system.

Power Requirements: The included 39" Power/AV harness features a +12V constant wire (yellow), +12V accessory wire (red), and Ground wire (black) that will need to hardwired inside the vehicle.

Q
I have a 2014 Impala with IO5 Chevy Mylink. Does this work with GM OEM screen?
[ Drew  Nov 06, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
To be compatible, the factory display would have to provide either an HDMI or composite video (RCA) input. We did not find either input option when we researched the 2014 Impala.

Q
If the quality from the phone to the screen good ?
[ Guillermo  Oct 02, 2018 ]

A
Quality will depend on what device you are sending the screenshot to. Picture will only be as good as the device receiving the signal. On my suburban factory radio/DVD player, it looks like I just installed a DVD. We use it on long trips to stream movies for the kids to watch. Had to get a couple of different adapters to make it work.

Quality is ok. Big letdown that netflix didnt work as advertised. You have to have an mhl enabled phone
[ BRANDON  Oct 02, 2018 ]
A
It wasn't compatible to my car. Your dash screen needs AV inputs for this to work.
[ Myo  Oct 02, 2018 ]
Q
Can I use this device to watch Netflix from my phone?

This device will mirror Netflix from compatible iPhones with the Lightning connector or Android phones with the microUSB connector! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

Q
Does this maintain touchscreen functionality?
[ Scott  Jun 23, 2018 ]

A
This is a display adapter so no it wouldn't. All the connections are for AV display only.
