Hi vsabolc!

Thanks for the info. This is very bad news for me. When I decided to buy this car, carplay was a main cause.

I downloaded the software update, it also works from the citroen website, but currently not installed.
Is there any new feature on this version?

I think carplay,mirrorscreen feature is disabled only for our countries :)
When my car will not under warranty, I try to enable this in BSI, but I think when I do it, I'm gona loose the warranty. So I have to wait 4 years :D

If you have any news please contact me :)

Yes, sure!

I don't think that there will be some news regarding to this - as they said they are not working on it - so if they do not work on it now (new car), later they will not for sure....

Why making such bad decision.... it is very good car and making this kind of differences between the customers is very unprofessional and very said :(

AdrianC - do you have the Touch with the NAVI system or just the Touch with the Radio?
I have the Flair model, pretty much everything on it except the traction knobby thing so I have navigation and upgraded stereo HiFi system too.

It'd be nice to have a true reflection of the android phone screen - not an app mirror - however I am quite happy with the way I have it working now just connecting via bluetooth. I spend most of my time listening to Audible stories.

Hello
I'm from Portugal and I have the same problem,
I do not have the Navigation option, and I have a 7 "Touchscreen, and I also can not turn on AndroidAuto.
I can not even connect to MyCitroen APP.

Hello, again
I asked Citroen France, and answered the following,
Is it true?

The MirrorScreen feature is the offset of the phone screen on the embedded system, it is done through 4 types of connections:
- MirrorLink
- AppInCar
- Android Auto
Or
- Apple Carplay
 
The connection is made by a hardware component that is not present in your vehicle and by a software component.
 
That's why, whatever the software update, you will not be able to benefit from this feature.

Hello,

I'm afraid that if they told that way, unfortunately there is no hope for us. How frustrating and ultra-stupid things is this????

I mean - the "hardware component" cannot costs hundreds of euros..... but it would make many benefits for users.... very stupid politics.... other companies simple added this earlier to cars - they cannot.

Very disappointed and most likely selling the car before warranty ends and never same brand again :(
