DarderSauce Nope, just the charging port. But this video gives me some hope.

Do you really need the MHL kit anabolina mentioned or can you just buy the MHL cable?

It would be sweet if I could just buy this

Then I could connect the HDMI and USB in the back of the HU, and run the phone connection somewhere near the center counsel.

DarderSauce Can you use the Android MHL Converter Kit to mirror any phone onto a double-din HU with an HDMI input? I understand you won't be able to use the HU to control your phone's menu but I was just wondering because streaming Netflix on long trips would be GREAT!

popwarhomie My first metra kit had that gap. The one I just bought has no gap at all.

badazz2010focus the 3300 is ollllllllld though it's still alive and kicking, I know what you mean about the clips LOL, I can mirror movies live news gps you name it I can do it some people don't know that the 3300 has an app mode :). My car didn't come with sync I put the mic down centered it on the cluster.

anabolina Ill admit that the $279 price clinched my shopping for me although the 3300 looks like a good hu too.

After some experimentation, basically calling people and moving the mic in the call i ended up with putting it as close to the sync one as possible which is right above the rearview mirror with the wires going through the headlined. Thankfully my brother used some brute force on the a pillar trim just now and its back to normal.

Its about the gap though if i focus on it, it'll drive me crazy. I suppose there's another brand with a kit to try, my current one is missing a couple of clips since they flew away while i was trying to install. Its surprisingly secure anyway.
