Display (mirror) SmartRace on a larger screen, e.g. a TV or a projector

If the display of your smartphone or tablet is too small for you, you can easily mirror SmartRace to a larger screen. You can do this in the following ways.

Mirroring on iOS

Most users mirror SmartRace on iOS with AirPlay and an AppleTV. AppleTV is a small box from Apple that you can connect to a TV or other screen or projector (e.g. via HDMI). Then you simply use the function integrated in iOS/iPadOS to mirror the screen. How to do that, you can read here. By the way, it doesn’t have to be a new AppleTV – an older generation device will do.

Of course, you can also connect an HDMI cable directly to your iPhone or iPad if you don’t have an AppleTV. For this you need the Apple Lightning DigitalAV adapter. If you use SmartRace on macOS, you can of course simply connect an external monitor to your Mac as usual.

Mirroring on Android

You also have several options on Android. A very common way is to use Chromecast or Miracast. For Chromecast, you need a corresponding device, e.g. a FireTV stick from Amazon or a Google Chromecast adapter. Both devices are connected to your screen, TV or projector via HDMI. You can then easily mirror the screen content via your Android smartphone or tablet using the Google Home app.

You can also transfer the screen directly via cable on Android, but you will need an adapter that is compatible with your device. It is best to use an adapter that also charges your device directly, since using SmartRace (Bluetooth) and screen mirroring at the same time will not keep your device’s battery up for long.
