Guys,

Sorry was travelling.

Essentially this is an app that integrates your smartphone to the car's infotainment system. But, before you bother to get the instructions you must make sure that in your vehicles phone settings that you have Android Auto (usually will have Apple Carplay there too) before you try.

I understand that these apps have been installed only on specific models and only 2017 or later.

Even if you do have Android Auto installed in your car, be aware that the Android Auto app is still not approved for our region (for some reason I do not know) so you wont find it in Google Play Store but you can download it and install it from a mirror site. The trick is to know what version to install.

If anybody still wants to try, pm me with your h/p number and i will apps it to you when I can.

hmm.. so the pre-req is that the car must come installed with the AA, I doubt mine has. My bought my GLA in Sep and the SE said there is no AA. However, playing with the Configurator on MB website, it seems to suggest that new models would have the AA.

indeed. if  no AA on the car, you wont be able to properly integrate the visual with the display. You might however get audio functionality but that's next to useless, at least for me.

Any idea if it would just require a firmware upgrade to the ICE by C&C to have the AA?

I have read about Merc dealers doing this on some models overseas, but here, I doubt unless someone aftermarket offers it...

Odd, it should by rights be there. http://www.aclassclub.co.uk/forum/android-auto_topic11613.html

have you gone to the top level of the menu (using the star button) and checked phone functions ?

Car play and AA is supposed to be "standard' but only certain cars are fitted either or. This month  cars dun come with it. Can anyone check if can MO with AD or other solutions. Paying $3000 for after market is " ahem" for something that is suppose to be standard.

For those who are using AA on the mobile phone, Waze is now available (just few days ago) on the Mobile Phone version of Android Auto. You just need to update your WAZE app on your mobile phone.

AA is not available on Singapore Google PlayStore. I installed mine by downloading the APK from https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/android-auto/. Have been using this for 1 year plus already.
