The Jensen HDMI/MHL App is supported only on Jensen Models VX4012, VX4022, DMX5022, VX7012, and VX7022 Models with HDMI/MHL capability.
Your device must support HDMI or MHL output. An HDMI adapter is required for most smartphones. For example, the Samsung S3/S4 & Note 2 use the Samsung ET-H10FAUWESTA Micro USB to HDMI 1080P HDTV Adapter Cable. Other Android phones use a USB 5 to 11 Pin HDMI adapter which is widely available. An HDMI cable with 2 Type A male connectors is required. These adapters are available at smartphone retail stores. See our head unit documentation for more information about HDMI/MHL adapters.
The 5 / 5S / 6 / 6 Plus are supported with HDMI screen mirroring via the Apple Lightning Digital HDMI adapter. An HDMI cable with 2 Type A male connectors is required. No app or other software is needed for Apple devices.
