Unfortunately, MirrorLink is only compatible with the Iphone 4 and 4S. Trying to get it working w Unfortunately, MirrorLink is only compatible with the Iphone 4 and 4S. Trying to get it working with anything newer, is just going to leave you with hours of frustration. Best option is to email Pioneer and Toyota to complain.

what is the difference between av composite and av component cable?
- Asked by Anonymous A from XXXXXXXXXX
- on Dec 2, 2010
They are two analogue video formats, but composite connection puts all the video down one connector They are two analogue video formats, but composite connection puts all the video down one connector which is more convenient but less quality. Pretty much all TV's have these, if your TV has a SCART then a simple adapter will also allow you to play it back. Component cable have higher quality by splitting the video into three parts (mistaken for Red, Blue and Green it is really Luminance, Contrast and Hue). This is the better quality but generally only modern HD sets have them and even then most opt to use the digital HDMI. Both carry audio over a Left and Right cable which can be plugged into a receiver if you choose. In short if you have component on your set go for that, but if you wish to use this with other TV's or systems, it is a 99/100 chance going to support Composite. Check your TV!

To make the audio sound better set your iphone4 to mono otherwise you'll only hear one channel of any stereo sounds. Settings > General > Accessibility > Mono Audio "ON" I found out how to fix the sound issue when I was trying to connect my iphone4 to a mono input on a PA Amplifier. Hope this helps :-)
