    Default Iphone 6S vs Igo Primo

    Dear community,

    I have a 2015 VW Golf MK 7 with composition media version 1, connected to an internal device - Dynavin - (retrofitted by VW dealer)

    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    That allows me to have Igo Primo running in the same screen (The media is OE from VW but there is a device inside the dashboard, connected to the screen of the media). To activate Wince / IGO, I have to press the "Media" button for 3 seconds.

    I have a usb port that connects directly to the composition media system

    Is there a way to connect my Iphone 6S into that usb port and have in the IGO PRIMO software a kind of mirroring option of the Iphone to read text messages, emails and so on?
    I was ready the session of sys.txt commands and there's an infinity of commands there (Very nice thread by the way)
    I don’t know if by skins or UX … What for sure I know is that this community has an amazing knowledge.
    Since I always received from the community answers and help to my questions, maybe there is an "easy" solution for my present question from you experts.

    Thanks in advance.

    First, there is no way to connect any device via USB port fo transfer software. Nor port on the unit is it designed to receive that kind of data, nor is it mobile port designed for to send such information.
    You can connect iPhone or Android device via wireless protocol (bluetooth) with HU, if HU have in advance installed software and the possibility for that.

    Btw, it is not a question for this forum, and it would be good for you to read the manual of your both devices, and iPhone and Dynavin.

    I was just asking ...

    The iphone is paired via BT to the headunit, my question was related to the possibility of IGO MOODED Skin or something could get either via usb cable via BT that data and show it on the screen.

    And no ... I don't need to read iOS manuals. I'm an Apple developer that just don't know much of GPS softwares.

    For that to work, solution could be only external WindowsCE program which would be able to communicate with iOS on that level (I doubt it).
    Another words, iOS should treat WindowsCE device as input/output device and allow it to access that data (you should know how it works better than me).
    If you solve that communication, then we could talk about how to integrate it in Primo.

    Do you know difference between developer and programmer?
    So much the worse. Do not embarrass yourself.
    First, you should know basics of hardware unctioning. Both devices have to support specific protocols for that kind of data transmission over USB. Of course this means that they have chipset for that.
    Then there goes another layer - software support. At very low level. After that, then comes a software level that interests you.
    ux files have nothing to do with it.
    Android devices... maybe (MirrorLink). IOS devices - no.

    If you read the Dynavin N6 manual, it does stated that it would work with iPod/iPhone plugged into one of it's USB port. I think that is the reason why it's assumed it's possible/easy to implement. With Apple closed API, it's gonna be low chance of anyone able to do it. Android open API is much better; unfortunately, Dynavin is an IOS supported device and not android. Unlike a "dedicated" WinCE device, Dynavin N6 has infrastructure to handle many different devices connected to it, Navigation (iGO) is just one component.

    For what purpose? Transfer media files or more features?
    I know for a lot of devices that can connect the iphone but only as a music device.
    Does the iPhone/iPad device in general has the possibility of data transmission over USB such as when some androids have(mentioned MirrorLink)?
    Plus a very closed platform, which is explained by O4i.

    Ability to play/control (not just transfer) music from iPod. But it didn't mention specifically what iPhone capability is. I would imagine BT capability would be inherent; but my gut feeling is that they have API to control iPhone. The point is even if there is a layer to provide such capability, it's not easily accessible.

    Gents,

    As an iOS DEVELOPER I know, by experience that is possible to connect, via USB, an iPhone to a car headunit. VW, Audi, etc etc have it.

    The iPhone protocol transfer data is ISO, so it's a question of the headunit know how to "read" the data from the iPhone. That same USB port reads music, movies, pictures, firmware updates, etc etc, OR ... some software that does this!
    As a certified programmer, well ... If someone what's to know about COBOL/CICS, RPG III, C and others, my pleasure ...

    Porpose? Productivity ... Read text messages, emails ... Not having to pick up the phone while driving

    It's not a question of possible or not (it's possible that I can go to the moon, but probably I won't be able to.) What you want is more appropriately gear toward Dynavin implementing it rather some hackers* doing it. The functionality only served Dynavin. And not only that you have to know Dynavin and iOS, but also NNG API**

    * Hackers don't have access to API, while developers do
    ** Good luck on trying to get it
