Hey guys! I'm a new Kadjar owner and new to this forum. Quite unfortunately - I decided to get my Signature S Nav from the dealer existing stock and it turned out to be from the "old" stock with the older R-Link 2 install with no smartphone mirroring. I'm determined to get this rectified and have done some extensive research over multiple forums to see the situation and it seems that Apple require a "higher powered USB output" which I frankly think is bollocks because the existing output is more than my wall charger. Nonetheless - if this is true then I don't see why Renault can't at least include android auto when the whole system itself is android based. So for this I have three actions proposed: 1) Go sign the petition from the french forum (use google translate if you're not fluent in croissant) - https://www.change.org/p/renault-france-android-auto-carplay-pour-tous-les-r-link-2-renault? 2) If someone has the new r-link 2 software (version 18.104.22.1681) - please upload the update file? - I can ask some more talented friends if they can do some work on trying to build a custom firmware - this will be risky however and not guaranteed - its been done on the Mazda CX5 to bring android auto on there but people need to reinstall the stock firmware before car goes into service (I believe). 3) This is my own personal endeavour as I feel I've been wronged by Renault in my particular case - my car was manufactured April 24th and this article clearly states "From April onwards, 100% of new cars produced with R-LINK will embark the compatibility with the leading smartphone projection technologies from Google and Apple." This was more recently changed to May 2017 vehicles - so it is quite unacceptable that I only had that previous info when buying my car - I think I should have a legal avenue to pursue but ideally want to resolve it with a software update. Thanks for reading guys! Keep up the pressure and keep contacting Renault complaints team
Took delivery of my new kadjar 2 days ago and im in love has a few features I was not expecting and they are a great bonus I have seen a few people say the 1.2 tce is not that powerful however, I find its really nippy and definitely more powerful than my last car which was a 1.6, really impressed so far the only thing I cant get to display is car play using the new screen mirroring that is supposed to be compatible on the new Kadjars, can someone explain the process as cannot get the apple apps to show on the sat nav screen as carplay is supposed to look like many thanks in advance
