Does anyone know if the regular radio unit display has video input on the back that can be used to mirror your Iphone screen to use google maps, waze and other apps?

NAV tools sells a kit that supposedly can do that on non-navigation head unit in 2013-2015 Leaf S ... rface.aspx

Has anyone tried the kit or managed to mirror Iphone on the radio display?

The stock radio does not have an easily-accessible video input. The closest it has is the backup camera input, and that is a proprietary, tiny four-prong plug. You would have to hack the connector AND find out where the backup signal is on the wiring harness.

Your best bet is to get a third-party radio. The "S" model makes it easy. While the radio is just slightly larger than a standard double-DIN radio, there are adapters available.

I have a Sony XAV-AX100 radio in my 2015 "S". It has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, and will play videos on the display from USB devices. (Technically, this only works if you have the parking brake set, but it's easy to figure out the no-cost bypass.) It's important to know that CarPlay does NOT mirror your iPhone. It has its own interface and only a certain subset of apps will run (mostly radio apps).
