Question External display?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to get all video from the Bold to display on a separate LCD? IPod cable? What I'd like to do is get the GPS screen to display on an LCD that has an additional input from a backup camera... basically dual purpose the LCD that's in my dash so that I can see my phone display at all times on "channel 2." I could then have my GPS screen up there for AT&T Navigator.

Any way to do this?

There is no hardware in the Bold (or any Blackberry for that matter) to output to external screen so what you want to do can not be done.

There is this -> Impatica Inc. - Plug-in Free Streaming PowerPoint and Video so there is the ability in the OS to put out video to a VGA VIA USB and Bluetooth

As long as your device has a VGA in you could use that.

Well the be honest what it is really doing is taking screen captures every x seconds and transmitting them to the box they have which converts it to VGA signal and it does not say how many Frames per second it renders. So I don't know what a movie would look like on this device but for power points it should look nice.
