    and Chromecast will screen share BUT not work with a hotspot.
    Is there any device that will do both? The goal is to mirror waze and traffic apps off the phone (which is now Oreo) to the car's upper display. I have a HDMI to A/V cable. Thx.

    Could you please give more details on just what you're trying to do and what kind of set up you have -- smartphones, TVs, dongles, etc. -- because right now it sounds way too convoluted. References to a Chromecast indicate some kind of home use but pairing up with a car display indicates something in a car. Or are in a mobile home?
    Something like a Chromecast can connect to hotspot, if it's currently set up to work on a home LAN you just have go through the set-up process to pair it up with the hotspot network instead.

    Il try.
    Phone is an LG v30 running 8.0 (as of Friday when i started this adventure).
    Car is a 2017 infiniti Q60.
    Have an hdmi to a/v converter cable.
    Goal is to share screen and apps like Waze onto the cars upper display.
    The car has a yellow video input.
    So far the chromecast nor the amazon firestick will do both mobile hotspot and accept mirror/scren share from the phone.

    Just found on Amazon and have ordered a Belkin Miracast Video Adapter - this might be what i need.
    As next i was going to try a Roku stick.
