TeslaMirror for iOS
TeslaMirror is an App that will help your iPhone App mirroring to Tesla vehicle! Also, it can support App screencast to a normal desktop browser (Safari or Chrome).
For Tesla vehicle built-in browser
1 Make sure the car is PARKED (0mph/0kph)!
2 The Tesla vehicle network must be connected to the iOS device Personal Hotspot (cellular data needed) first. Tesla MCU2 hardware is needed. MCU2 is available on the Tesla Model
3 Model Y, Model X (late than March 2018), Model S (late than March 2018), or the Tesla vehicles that are upgraded to MCU2 from MCU1.3 Start the TeslaMirror App. Confirm "Tesla Proxy" switch is on in the TeslaMirror App
4 Click the "Start" button, then click "Start Broadcast" to start Screen Broadcast in the TeslaMirror App
5 Access the link http://240.3.3.3 via Tesla vehicle in-car browser
6 Pinch the Tesla vehicle built-in browser screen to zoom in/out the picture
7 There is no audio support for the moment. Only the App screen will be mirrored to the browser. You can use the Bluetooth audio link to the Tesla vehicle play the audio of the iOS device simultaneously during the App mirroring.
8 Do not lock the screen. The Screen Broadcast API limitation needs the screen to keep unlocked. Once the screen is locked, Screen Broadcast needs to be restarted.
For normal desktop browser
1 Devices are on the same Wi-Fi network
2 Start the TeslaMirror App.
3 Click the "Start" button to start Screen Broadcast in the TeslaMirror App
4 Access the link below the "Stop" button via a normal desktop browser (Safari or Chrome)
1 No extra internet traffic for the screencast, the App mirroring traffic is only locally on iOS device Personal Hotspot. However, please note that during the screenshot, the Tesla vehicle will use the hotspot traffic for its internet access when the hotspot is connected
2 No extra hardware needed
3 Private, the screencast is only available to the devices connected to the iOS Personal Hotspot Wi-Fi network
4 Fast network
5 5GHz Personal Hotspot(iPhone 12 series supports it) Wi-Fi is highly recommended. Do not enable the "Maximize Compatibility" setting for iPhone 12 series. By default, iPhone 12 series come with a 5GHz Wi-Fi Personal Hotspot. Once the "Maximize Compatibility" setting enabled, it will go back to the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi hotspot.
1 This is not CarPlay
2 iOS Apps that use the AVPlayer framework cannot be supported, such as the Apple Music App and Netflix App. For the Apple Music App, although the screen can be streamed to the browser, the audio part will be muted during the Screen Broadcast.
3 Netflix App not supported

Ratings and Reviews
App interferes with LTE
Unfortunately, I had to uninstall. The app uses a VPN to make its function work and the VPN would interfere with my LTE connection, making my phone constantly loses cellular data connection. The TeslaMirror VPN would constantly try to turn on even when not using the app or broadcasting.
Disappointing because it seems to be the only app on iOS than offers this but this issue was a deal breaker.
Freezes when I use Waze.
When I set everything up and mirror onto my Model 3 screen and start Waze it works for maybe a minute and just freezes. I have tried numerous times with same result.
Developer Response ,
The latest 1.84 version is on App Store now. Please upgrade and check
again. Please also note the Location Services settings. Thanks.
Fix App switching freeze issue.
Please note, TeslaMirror App needs the correct Location Services access right.
###1 The iOS system "Location Services" must be "On"
###2 The TeslaMirror App Location Services access option can be either
"While Using the App" or "Always"
This application does use Location services to access Wi-Fi access
point network name on iOS 13 or later. Location data is not stored or
collected at any point. No information is stored by our company.
However, if the iOS system Location Services is not "On", or the
Location access for TeslaMirror App is incorrect. The TeslaMirror App
will not function correctly.
Don’t waste your money
Download it for less than 5 mins. It “works” but too buggy/laggy to be useful.
