Apple-CarPlay upgrade

  • Good question. If I recall correctly you download the Update to a USB stick (with Mercedes tools) and install it that than on to the car. Is that correct vwcruiser? But if I know that correctly, you also need to enable it than with Xentry? Can that also be done with DT4all or should a standard MercedesBenz Workshop in Australia also be able to do that? :/

  • Is it the original radiosystem of your car. I remember me, that the Smart Media Connect System was build in after 10/2020. Your car was build in 05/2020. I think you need for an update a XENTRY Diagnosis system for checking the software of your system. If a newer version is available, you can download the software from XENTRY to an USB-stick.

  • You could also make the carplay radio wireless by using a 3rd party wireless adapter for your carplay radio. Isn't as nice a by the factory, but should work the same, be the cheapest solution and also the most hassle free.

  • Thanks… can you replace the hardware through Smart?

    They won't do it. You'll need to get the stuff from 3rd parties who sell it.


    Was this system upgrade the only change to the car in 2021?

    They started with the late 2020 models.

  • Hi Guys

    Looking to buy a 2020 cabrio, can my system be upgraded to Apple Car Play? I’m so confused :)

    Thanks

    Nicki

    Hello,
    I also have the same radio in a Smart ForTwo Cabrio Brabus :)
    I would like to add carplay, even if it's necessary to change for the new radio.


    It's just replacing the headunit? Someone knows the necessary material?


    I want to avoid a chinese android. Also, because I have the JBL sound system and it's more difficult to find a proper radio.


    Thanks,
    JT

  • In this case I'd get the original radio from smart with CarPlay. I'd ask my Mercedes dealer, whether he can do that and how expensive it would get. Ít's definitely possible and has been done before, but it's the easiest, when they do it themself, so everything is properly unlocked in the software.

  • There are complete kits, at least here in Germany, with which you can replace the old unite with the original carplay unite and even code it correctly.
