    Carplay/Android Auto activation/update in Audi A6 C7 2015 (post-facelift)

    Hello all!

    I've heard that Audi A6 & A7 MY2017 (2016 maybe?) got Apple Carplay and Android Auto (as an option, at least).

    And I've heard that it would be possible to put them in MY2015 and MY2016 - which, like in my case, originally don't get - since they have MMI 4G

    Don't know how much of this is true, neither how much is retrofit or tweak. Just found this, but it doesn't make clear if it's software or hardware change, or both, or just adaptation:

    Any ideas? If necessary, I can paste an auto-scan later.


    Cheers.

    I emailed the second link before. He's quoting 800 Euros for remote activation and 500 Euros if you send him the MMI head unit.

    Your A6 and A7 would need to have MIB2 and be a MY17 vehicles. Officially activating remotely is possible but would require the remote end to have a VAS interface. Its not possible to activate Audi Smartphone interface on "benched" units as the process requires said unit to be error / DTC free. Sounds like your 2nd link guy is "hacking", in which case both remote and bench activations are possible but you can kiss goodbye to any related Audi warranty. He / She is mega expensive also as even an official activation is cheaper than that lol

    Edit: Pricing example... I have a pending activation on an A6 Avant, total cost £300.00

    These are rediculous prices, Audi official price is 250EUR.

    It's for 2017, but I think there is only sw. update needed for units MIB2, which are in A6/A7 from 06/2015.

    Software or not, if FEC sees VIN is not from specific range, it might not enable the function.

    This is a DIY I wrote that explains what is involved. There will be differences, but it will give you an idea of what is involved. http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31600
