Retrofitting Apple Car Play/Android auto to my MMI?

Post by stepas » Sun Jan 12, 2020 8:28 am

Anyone has retrofitted an aftermarket unit to his MMI?? I `m searching for a unit that would be easy to install in order to use this feature on my MMI.

I've been quoted between 300 and 500 Euros for doing it. I didn't bother because you still have to use a cable, I was hoping I could use the existing Phone Box and bluetooth.

Wireless CarPlay is rolling out slowly - currently only available on the A6.

The official Audi Smartphone Interface/Apple Carplay needs MIB 2 (MIB High) to work. I've not seen any aftermarket kits, there is bound to be some available though.

Why do you need to retrofit Apple Car Play/Android Auto? I thought all versions of the Q2 were supplied with Audi Smartphone Interface as standard. All you need to do is connect your smartphone by a USB cable then enter the MMI Menu and select Apple Car Play or Android Auto depending on your phone.
The beauty of it is, the software that creates the smartphone interface on the MMI screen is regularly updated OTA through the phone. Which is more than you can say for the MMI software! Partly for this reason, I've long-abandoned using Audi Navigation, and now use Google Maps displayed via Android Auto.

I originally had some teething problems with AA but it seems to have vastly improved recently. Such a great, modern, feature that you could only dream about a few years ago.

Would love Apple,car play to be wireless in the Q2. Iv seen some options but they are around 100pounds. Anyone on here seen or used any cheaper?

Hey Guys,

The Q2 comes with smartphone link interface preparation in the MMI I believe and CarPlay/Android Auto as standard on some trim levels. Having said that it needs enabling and programming to work which is available to most models on the Q2.

Apple CarPlay was plug and play on my Q2 - it didn't require either enabling or programming.
