    If now Audi is asking for 350 euros to integrante Android Auto or Carplay...

    Is Audi going to give Carplay free???


    Unbeliable, I would consider It a BIG fraud, wouldnt It???


    And following that "rule"

    My Audi A7 (versión 2017) has MMI PLUS but It has not Audi Connect because I had to pay more money for this app/option

    But... "Because my harware is 2017, with just an update I Will have Audi Connect"...... Not???



    Its contradictory and very unacceptable if Audi now give something free when others paid So much money for the same.

    I don't think anyone is suggesting that. In many cases, not paying for the option leaves out the hardware required to support it. If Audi add functionality that relies on such hardware that wasn't available before, then perhaps they would provide that as an optional upgrade.

    So, in other words, if you had paid for smartphone integration and then Audi adds CarPlay later, it would be nice if they provided an update.

    Yes of course they Will Provide the update, always if you pay them beforehand.


    Its the same the case of my sister, she bought her X3 One year ago, whitout Carplay, but the dealer told her that in the future she could integrate It


    This year see went to BMW to order It and she had to pay them almost 300 euros to integrate Carplay in her X3...

    Neither Audi nor BMW gives anything free

    i know it sucks that they would make you pay for it but sadly to many people Myself included would pay 300 for the update if I looked around and couldn't find the update files myself

    Try what? Car Play? Have it on our Q7 and I've had it on loaner cars. Two words. It sucks! This from a huge Apple fan. It's just to glitchy and hard to navigate.

    Try to install it in the 2016 model C7. Really you don't like it? I figured it would be awesome. I'm a huge apple fan as well.

    I've tried it in the various loaner cars I've had as well. While I do like it, Audi's solution of using the MMI knob to operate it is kind of taxing. I'd say it's much better suited for a touchscreen system like my friend has in her 2016 VW Golf with CarPlay.

    I'm torn. I have it via a touch screen too and I really get distracted while using it, and if I hit a bump while navigating I'll accidentally tap options.

    I like CarPlay too. I wish Audi would let MMI be hotspotted as an option instead of paying another monthly data plan.

    Not really impressed with Audi thus far.

    Less than stellar dealer. Less than stellar concern from Audi over issues so far.

    Will likely be the last Audi we own.

    It would really surprise me if they made this available.

    I recently drove 2 different new Audi cars that both had Car Play, and I noticed something interesting on both.

    When I connect my iPhone 7 to the USB port and use the standard MMI Media menu to play music from the iPhone, and then switch over to CarPlay and play the exact same music file..... playing it over CarPlay make the music sound louder and fuller, although it also decreases the sense of space in the soundstage (what little soundstage there is to begin with, that is). At first I thought the bass and treble were set different, but even after confirming they were all the same CarPlay still sounds louder.

    It did this on a Q5 with B&O audio, and also on an A4 with the standard audio.

    Same iPhone
    Same music file
    Same Bass/Treble,Balance/Fader/DSP settings

    Only difference is whether playing from MMI or CarPlay, and CarPlay is noticeably louder.



    Anyone else tried this and confirmed the same?

    Has there been any word on a software update to put this on 16s? I'm itching for it.

    I'm fairly certain it's more than just a software upgrade to get CarPlay working.. on my previous 2016 TTS, hardware was also required in addition to the software. Unfortunately CarPlay wasn't available until the 2017 model year.
