    I have a Screent Display Unit in my Car with a HDMI Port and want to use my Samsung Galaxy S6 to play youtube Videos onto the Display.

    I went ahead and purchased a Chromecast but have so far failed to use it needs a seperate Wifi connection or a Hotspot from another Phone.

    I have unlimited Data on my Samsung Galaxy S6 and do not see the point in buying another Phone to Hotspot or Wifi Router for the Car as I would rather use the Internet connection from my own Samsung Galaxy S6 to play Youtube Videos and Miracast onto the Display.

    Can anyone advice me if the Chromecast can perform this and if not what other Dongle would suit my requirements.

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    The phone can't connect to its own hotspot. Get an MHL-to-HDMI adapter.

    My Phone which is the Samsung Galaxy S6 does unfortunately not support any MHL Adapter which is why I bought a Chromecast instead. Are there any other suitable Dongles that enable me to use my own Mobile Phone's Data Connection ?

    Thank you

    No, you'd need Chromecast and internet - of course, you could use a D-Link DWL-G730AP pocket-size router in the car. Chromecast only needs internet to update, otherwise local wifi is enough.
