Not sure how screen casting works on iPhone... But in theory, you could setup an RP3 to recieve screencasts over is own wifi network and just cast carplay to the screen. Then again, not sure if Apple supports simultaneous wifi+mobile data use. If not youd have a offline phone.

Edit: just learned about CarPlay dongles... Just pop one of those onto the RP3 running android, and it does exactly what I described above.

Totally missed this earlier - I've spent probably about 200 on this project, but I also killed a pi and eliminated half the converters I needed.. So this could probably be brought down to around 150? 125? - Once I actually have time / motivation to make a serious write up I'll have a better idea.
