Screen Mirroring

So I used bimmercode and enabled video-in-motion and then used screen mirroring from my android to use Waze while driving. It works flawlessly. Thank you bimmercode.

The only issue I have is screen mirroring does not fill the entire screen. Only 2/3 of it. I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to play with android setting or the BMW setting so that screen mirroring fills more of the screen.

Nice. What phone do you have? Is it a Samsung that supports screen mirroring or will any phone would work? How was your phone connected to the Head unit, USB?

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S10+ but any android phone with screen mirroring will work.

Screen mirroring does not need a wire connection. It uses wifi direct I think.

The problem I think lies where your phone does not know (or cannot support) the resolution of the Head Unit. So it adapts to one of its compatible resolutions and displays it.

Little off topic but do you mind posting some instructions on how to do the screen mirroring? I use Waze daily but new to "bimmercode".

My Huawei P30 Pro didn't work with screen mirroring. I think only phones with Miracast.
