    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

    There are more guys, who can do it. (on facelifted A6/A7) without possibility activation CarPlay/Android Auto from Audi dealer.
    It costs from 150 to 300 USD.
    There is necessary to update the software in MMI. (there is no hardware difference between unit with and without carplay)
    SW in EU should be MHI2_ER_AU57x_P3634 (not source where download it)
    SW in US should be ...K3324 (there is source in mega for download it)
    Not sure about Carplay Activation itself, it shoud be done via DLINK USB-ETHERNET adapter. Should be nice if someone made here some script for SD card :-) But someone in US can try it ...
    I think that dealer activation should be paid, but we are here on internet for free advices :-)

    Here is link:
    https://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...tion-DIY-Guide

    And these steps:
    Procedure
    Bottom-left, Top-left buttons listed below are the ones surrounding the rotatory wheel

    Format your SD card with Fat32
    Extract all files to SD card from RAR file - (such that you end up with a lot of folders are at root of the card)
    SD card with files to SD1 slot of car
    Turn on ignition (not the engine)
    Press Radio
    Hold Back + Bottom-Left buttons for 6 seconds - Green menu appears
    Tick the following option: production -> rcc_prod -> swdl_prod
    Press Radio
    Hold Back + Top-Left buttons for 6 seconds - Red menu appears
    Click update -> SD1 -> User defined
    Click Update on bottom right
    Enter into Bose6416A_P. Click All -> NONE -> All (if you don't do this, your Bose audio will not work until you get it fixed by a dealer)
    Press back and verify that N is written next to Bose6416A_P
    Scroll down all the way and click Start Update -> Start
    Wait until the process completes. Will reboot several times.
    In the next list that appears, scroll to bottom and click Resume -> Cancel version compare
    Wait until the process completes. Will reboot several times.
    If MMI is turned off at this time, press Start button to turn it on. Don't start engine.
    Reboot MMI by holding for a second or two Menu + Rotary Control + Top-right button
    Enjoy CarPlay or Android Auto

    There remain 2 errors.
    I am waiting for someone who will be so kind, have knowlege and made activation script :-)
    Also EU version link of SW is welcome :-)
