Not entirely sure of your setup but there needs to be a converter box that changes the digital signal from your phone into an analog signal for the RCA cables on the radio, otherwise there will be no output. Try hooking up an old DVD player or something with native RCA output and see if that works at all.

I have a iPhone 6s. I have the rca from aux rear to converter box. Its a hdmi to rca. HDMI into Apple lightning to hdmi. Does the Apple lightning to hdmi need to be powered too?

If you can, try each component separately on a TV. Make sure the lightening to hdmi works. If it's got a power plug, it probably needs to be powered.

Definitely try each piece separately to make sure that you can get each piece in the chain to function. I know some of the HDMI to RCA converter boxes can be pretty finicky. There's a million different ones to choose from. I'm using the one below and I've never had a problem with it.

I'm not sure there is a specific setting. I would assume if you have the HDMI to lighning adapter and all pieces in the chain are working correctly that it would show your phone screen on the radio screen without changing any setting on the phone. There is a rear aux option in the radio menu that you have to turn to ON. I believe it's set to OFF by default.

1) First thing you'll have to do in order to see any video above 2mph is enable Video In Motion (VIM). Follow the guide below to enable VIM for (almost) free. You'll need to buy about $25 worth of parts from Amazon. This is what I did and It's pretty easy. Just read the guide thoroughly and take your time.

2) You'll need these cables to connect to the passengers side of the radio:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pontiac-G8-...-/201485117222

3) You'll then need an HDMI to RCA converter box to connect to the cables linked above:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

4) You'll need an HDMI cable

5) With the HDMI cable from step 4 you can connect any device that outputs through HDMI (computer, apple tv, dvd player, gaming system . . .etc.) Phones may require an additional converter box based on what type of charging port your phone has.


This is video proof that the guide works. For this demo I just had a regular blu ray player hooked up in my car to test.

Success!!! I have video and sound on my G8 GT screen! Thanks everybody for all the help. Just waiting on the VIM rental. The stereo sounds good after turning up the factory sub amp.
