    2013 CT 200h Beat-Sonic iPhone Mirroring installed

    Thanks to Sam and Eric at Beat Sonic for their patience with me. They were very friendly and answered all my questions. And yes, you need everything listed below to make this all work.


    Here is the stuff you need:
    Beat-Sonic
    NDS6223EP Navigation and DVD Control Bypass Module
    AVC38 AUX Input Cable
    IF16STA HDMI to RCA Converter
    PC2 RCA Male-to-Male Adapter
    HDA3 HDMI Male to Male Adapter


    Amazon
    MD826ZM/A Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter
    Amazon.com: Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter for Select iPhone,iPad and iPod Models (MD826ZM/A): Electronics


    Lighting to USB Power Cable
    Amazon.com: AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning to USB Cable - 4 Inches (10 Centimeters) - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories


    Lightning Extension Cable (For a cleaner install)
    Amazon.com: Cellularize Lightning Extension Cable (3 foot white) for iPhone 6, 6S, Plus; Pass Video, Data, Audio Through Male to Female 8-Pin Cable. Dock Connector Extender Extension Cable for Lightning: Computers & Accessories


    Wire Tap-In
    Lockitt POSI-TAP 6 pack wire connectors 20-22 awg - Electronics Cable Connectors - Amazon.com


    Follow the instructions they give you and the info from this thread http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ct-2...us-ct200h.html) and it should go smoothly. I have never done anything like this before and it was relatively straightforward. Only snag was getting my big hands behind the radio to unplug stuff. The instructions said something about taking off four bolts once you disconnect all the wires but I couldn't figure it out. Oh well!


    Phone: iPhone 6 Plus


    Caveat the RCA-HDMI converter needs power which is what the wire tap-in is for. They can tell you which pin to splice power from depending on your year. Here is an example splice for the RCA-HDMI converter (NOT a Lexus) skip to 6:25 to see how to tap the power Beat-Sonic iPhone Mirroring Adapter (Installation) on 2015 Toyota Tundra Platinum - YouTube


    The screen is not as clear as the iPhone (obviously) but it's perfect for what it is.


    Here are the videso of the final install.


    The new tab that shows up



    The setting I used for it to fill the screen properly



    Here is where I passed the cable through. I looked up this part (part # 5882576010
    ) before hand before I destroyed it and it's only $14 give or take.




    In action (there is no flicker in real life. At ~1minute i refocus the camera):

    This is awesome. Did you do the install yourself? What was the total costs for the parts?

    did you look into using the USB data port instead of adding lightning?

    About $400 give or take. Contact the Beat-Sonic rep for any deals that might be going on. I don't know if he is on here but he is on clublexus

    Charles, I like your setup. I bought the ivic 6i system for my CT.
    I have been 3D printing some phone mounts to get a "dock" that I like.

    This is awesome and I want to do the same on my 2012. However, there doesn't seem to be too many systems that are compatible with the 2011-2012 models for iPhone mirroring. And the iVic 6i is sold out everywhere I've looked.

    @jodycochran, where did you get yours?
