    Default Force audio out dock connector?
    Connected to the dock connector on my jailbroken iPod touch 4g is a dock connector splitter. Connected to one end of the splitter is an Apple Composite AV Cable and the other end has a dock connector GPS unit from Bad Elf. The goal here is to have the Navigon GPS app display on the in-dash monitor. I've accomplished this and it's great. My iPod touch's screen is mirrored on the monitor using TVOut2 and Resupported4 from Cydia.

    Here's my problem: The audio cables from the Apple AV cable are plugged into the aux input on the back of my car stereo, however when I try to play music, the audio plays on the iPod Touch's internal speakers and not on the car stereo. For some reason the audio isn't being sent out through the dock connector and rather than having a 1/8 inch audio cable also connected to my device, I'm looking for perhaps a hack that will solve my problem.

    Is there a hack or 3rd party app that allows for manual selection between the dock connector and the internal speaker for audio playback? Is there an alternative or simpler solution that I haven't considered? Basically i want to force audio out the dock connector instead of play on the internal speaker.

    Any help or advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

    no, the phone will detect if a secondary audio source is connected, eg headphone or dock speakers via dock connector, and use the appropriate output automatically.

    i would recommend firstly, trying the av cable on a tv, make sure you get video and stereo out from the cable.

    if that works, id say its your monitor or whateva device is playing the audio? is it a headdeck in a car?
