What do you use the video input socket for?

Just wondering what other people use their video input for, I've HDD SatNav and can't think of a use for the input socket.

I though the same when I looked under the flap. They seem to be the standard 3 x phono plugs so I suppose a compatible Video Camera ?

It's a funny/strange thing to have in a car.

+1

BTW, on the US wiring diagrams for the CR-V that has the same HDD Nav, it seem the way it turns off the video when driving is when one wire from the Nav is grounded via the handbrake...

... a simple hack if can get to the rear of the Nav unit

Can you get an iphone 5 cable with video cabling at the other end (Red, black,Yellow)?

Maybe we could have a phone screen in the HDD unit, you could stream video etc

Yes should work. If I remember correctly a non jailbroken iphone only outputs video when a program calls for it and not all the time like in menus.
Might have changed since 3g I dont know
