How do I watch movies on my Ford synced with my phone while driving?

Is there a way to watch movies on my phone while driving my Ford? I know how to connect my phone to my vehicle to play music from my phone, but I’m wondering if there is a way to do that with movies.

Answer
Yes, there is! That said, while it is nifty to have your phone connected to your vehicle and provides many entertainment options, it is dangerous to watch movies while you are driving. While driving, you want to avoid any form of distraction.
However, if you are a passenger and want to kill time in the car, the feature you are looking for is called MirrorLink. MirrorLink is a system that bridges the connection between any smartphone to a car’s infotainment display. To watch movies, follow these steps:
  • Connect your phone: Sit inside your vehicle and connect your phone to the MirrorLink boarding system via Bluetooth. If you don’t have Bluetooth, you can use a USB cable.
  • Look for MirrorLink: Go to Settings on your phone and look for the MirrorLink tab. Once you have selected it, the MirrorLink display should pop up on your car’s infotainment system.
  • Select the movie on your phone: Begin watching the movie or other entertainment on your phone. Once selected, it will display on your car’s entertainment system screen.
You should be all set to enjoy movies in your car! Should you be taking a longer trip in the future, consider adding a roadside assistance membership as well.
