Hello,

I just performed map update (V13) from i believe V6/V7, and while looking around the setting I noticed Android Auto / Apple Car Play icons. It turns out Android Auto function is available through USB (no wireless?) and appears to be working. I was wondering because 5.0 or Ultimate (9.2") did not have Android Auto available; did it come with the new update?

so you have an Ultimate with the 9.2" screen and jog dial and you installed Version 13 and now have Carplay and Android Auto?

just trying to be clear, because up to now neither were available for the 9.2" prior to the 2018 models.


and no it wouldn't work through wireless, wireless Carplay/AA require in car wifi, it does not work through bluetooth because of bandwidth limitations. bluetooth cannot transfer video/screen mirroring, wifi is required for that.

I thought the touch only was an 8" screen, and your pictures seem to indicate it is an 8" screen. The touch only has an additional plastic surround to fill in the gap difference between the 8" touch and the 9.2" premium.

Carplay was added to the 8" touch a few years back, since your version was so old you didn't have it, but had you done the free upgrade that was offered about 16 months ago you would have had it then.

Yeah really sucks wish mapnsoft would offer it up... I see no real need to buy update otherwise. I would really like to be able to use waze through infotainment screen, you would think someone could at least come up with a mirror dongle that would work.

There's probably a hack somewhere but it would probably require a fistfull of obscure dongles & wires from Amazon to make it (maybe) work...

It seems as a matter of principle that some folks believe there s a hack for everything. But that is not always case (and I am not talking about having enough money and time to rebuild the front end from scratch)
Even if there was a hack - it wouldn't be worth the trouble to me....

I mean if there was a viable hack, you could take your car to a car audio store and get it done. Last time I checked at one of the premier ones here tho, it would cost 2-3k in "research" to test of anything would stick. As I don't drive a Benz, too rich for my blood xD (ironically I think the older command interfaces actually have a workaround lololol)
