Reason being is if i have a movie playin on the ipad i want to be able to play it on my tv or on my monitor in my camper or in my vehicle. Please help

    Google is your friend.

    An old analog TV with a 75 Ohm connection? Won't work. An HDTV? What kind of connections are on your TV? HDMI only or do you have component only or both?
    You mention a monitor. A CGA monitor? That won't work? A VGA monitor? That would be a different cable than the one for a HDTV.

    You need to give more info than just "What kind of cable do I need?"
    No one on here knows what you are trying to do other than connect to a TV and a monitor.

    Apple Component AV Cable - Apple Store (U.S.)

    Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

    You can probably find off brand knock offs for cheaper if you search Google or this forum. I have think the component cables will work better for trying to connect to a TV and a screen in a vehicle. Just a heads up, but they do make mounting kits that piggy back into your vehicle's audio system. I just setup one in my boss' Titian. Looks great, fits up in the overhead bin , and keeps it charged.

    One cable won't fit all of your needs. I use the iPad dock to via connector for my computer monitor but you can use the component cable for the HDTV.
