Apple car play

9 posts in this topic

I picked up my Kadjar yesterday its an ex demo one so registered 31/7/17, its a signature nav bose model.

Now I'm looking for apple car play, i can't see the smartphone mirroring icon on the screen at all.

Just updated the R link software and maps the the latest version.

Am i to assume that the car is a pre May car?

How do I work out the manufacturing date of the car?

 

Other than that I'm loving the car at the moment.

Have a look at the  firmware version of the r link 2 if it’s 2.2.x.x it won’t have it. Only hardware with firmware 3.3.x.x has the capability of running it

There's no need for any icons on RLink. Just plug in phone with a cable and everything starts automatically. You'll see a new button in the lower middle of the screen.

How do you find out what firmware version you are running?

How do you get firmware 3.3.x.x

No, only vehicles which left the factory since June 2017 (with r-link version 3.3.x.x) have Apple carplay and Android Auto capability.

 Unfortunately, earlier r-link versions cannot be upgraded.
