  • Projecting garmin app to a tv?

    I'm just finishing my garage build and was trying to put off buying a projector while I worked the kinks out. I mounted my tv on the wall, bought a hdmi adaptor which lets me connect my old samsung s9 to the tv and charging at the same time. Using the deX app. It seemed to work at 1st but now the screen keeps cutting out, comes back on for a few seconds and repeats problem. I thought maybe the problem was the 15-year-old led tv. Took it to a friend's house and had same issue. Bought another short cable, top of the line. Will this issue also happen with a projector? Anyone else have any issues or thoughts? Thanx,1st post after lurking for info over the last few months!

    Bob Ferguson - I've done it both ways, cable, and project it (Mirror your iPhone screen to the projector). As long as you have a decent projector you can try it either way... I've had problems too some times with the cable connection - so lately I've been only mirroring (sending video/audio) from iPhone to the Projector and it's so much easier.

    Here's the projector I have:

    If you want to send it from TV, if your playing with another software you can Mirror from TV also, just select your Display Settings on the computer display and Mirror it and you will see it on your computer monitor + on your screen

    But, you may have to consider audio cables, to get audio to speakers use this:

    Here is the Vizio Surround sound system I use with the projector (also does a good job with music):

    You can see my setup and where I placed speakers on my Shed Build thread here:

    Let me know if you have any questions,

        Bob Ferguson if you have a TV or projector that doesn’t let you Mirror from iPhone or iPad like Brettster has mentioned. Than you can also get a Roku for $29 that will let you do this. A ROKU will be cheaper than a 30ft HDMI cable and do the same job. Also I like it as I can keep my iPad charging while using sim.

            I ended up using Chromecast, after much work i was able to mirror my phone full screen. (Old phone, limited tech patience) Not sure how it will work when I'm actually hitting, try it out later, it's extremely windy here so it's time to hit the water for some kiteboarding! I'll test it out later fully. Thanx all

              Sounds like a good option Bob Ferguson . Let us see a pic of how it turned out.

              SweetTeeGolf has an excellent idea too. I do have a Amazon FireStick plugged into my projector sometimes too, which would likely do the same job, I just never got around to hooking it up that way.

              I can see that having an iPad charging and not being used for projection is a great idea.

                I hope this gets easier, chromecast seems very fickle, didnt want to link up to phone, finally did but I had no idea what I did. Next up is the garmin unit, look at those crazy #'s?

                  The distance is showing yards but the club and ball speeds are showing kmh rather than mph

                    Noticed that when I actually had a practice session! No idea how that changed. Now that I have the casting working fairly well, I'll make decision on a projector. Here's an interesting discovery, I had a plastic practice ball mixed in with my regular balls, just for giggles hit it and the reading on it was in the same as the regular balls, go figure !

                      If you have android you are required to have the Non Garmin (I use E6 connect) software on a PC or laptop. If you have a Smart TV (that's on your WiFi) you can "duplicate or extend to a connected display", which means whatever is showing on your monitor will show on your TV. I have dual monitors so I duplicate monitor 1 and my shop TV, then I can still use the other monitor to do other stuff.
