I still have unlimited data with AT&T. My phone is jailbroken allowing me to create a hotspot at no additional charge. By creating a hotspot you are creating a network. So the AppleTV and your phone would be on the same network.

If you don't have enough data, it's not a good option for you!

I'm not using Airplay and haven't tested it, I'm simply downloading and watching the movie directly on the AppleTV using my iPhone as a hotspot - that works fine, but you do need sufficient data, obviously.

I'm going to guess that Airplay won't work for the same reason the AppleRemote can't be used and the reason skunkd points out - they need a common WiFi network. BUT I haven't tried yet.

They are on the same network. Sorry for the crappy pic, it was hard holding the iPad to take a pic of my phone and TV using AirPlay.

Re: Hey Apple TV Guys!

Chrysler really out did them selves with the Uconnect not allowing you to watch video from radio unless jail broken...

Re: Hey Apple TV Guys!

Hoping to be able to fit everything underneath the nav but the Apple TV.

Re: Hey Apple TV Guys!

Here is a video of my Apple TV working while driving. My wife filled while I drove. Just picked a random Netflix movie.

AppleTV in 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee - YouTube

Here is a crappy pic of the Apple TV awkwardly fitting in the cubby. Everything is behind the climate controls/under the nav.
