How do you expect to stream from iTunes?

by

I don't need iTunes, my car has a built in wifi hotspot and I can tether from my phone or iPad for Internet. The new Apple TV has apps so it's more than just an iTunes Player

by

From my understanding AppleTV apps are still tethered to iTunes for them to run. So you'll still need access to the internet as you are driving.

Yes as I have said I have wifi hotspot built in... Now how about you try and answer the actual question Dan ?

You'll need a car DC to AC converter like this one: Tripp Lite PV150 Ultra 150 Watt Power Inverter so you can plug in the AC cord of the AppleTV into. We use these for our field staff to use their laptops in the field.

There is no 12volt power supply option for the AppleTV it was never designed to be a mobile device.

Did you receive it yet?

by

Yes, I received it. It took quite a long time to travel, although it was posted next day. This seems to be due to customs. Nevertheless it arrived and is a really good solution. Even the 220V connector is replaced for a standard low voltage connector. It works like it should :-)
