  • Smartphone Mirroring using MHL (Samsung Phones)

    In this article, we are going to talk about the Samsung device specific MHL adapters.

    What is MHL (Mobile High-definition Link)?

    1. High Resolution : MHL currently supports up to 8K video resolution, allowing you to see your content the way it was meant to be seen.
    2. Immersive Audio : MHL delivers enhanced audio through its support of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
    3. No Lag : MHL offers a zero-lag, seamless connection from mobile devices to screen.

     

    Are all MHL adapters the same? 

    • In general, MHL adapters are backwards compatible, so you can use newer adapters with older phones.
    • Samsung devices use 11-pin Micro USB port instead of the standard 5-pin connector.  Either a Samsung specific MHL adapter or an 11-pin to 5-pin converter is required for use with the standard adapters.

    We'd like to share a very important installation tips and this will save you hours.

    Tip#1

    instruction

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Before removing the factory bracket on the radio, please mark the position of the screws on both left and right side before unscrewing.

    If you fail to mark the screws before unscrewing, it will be extremely difficult to align the position of the aftermarket head unit during the assembling, and the fitment to the center fascia will be off. The only way to fix this issue is unscrewing all the screws again and try in various position until it fits, which could take hours.

    instruction_2

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Tip#2

    Please draw a circle around the fastener and make sure the fastener is positioned right in the center when you reassemble.

    instruction_3

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Align the 2-DIN aftermarket head unit so that it is exactly centered with the respect to the center fascia. Use a ruler to measure the distance from the outside edge of the center fascia to the side of the 2-DIN aftermarket head unit. The distance on both sides must be exactly the same.
