    Car you play audio (music/podcast/book etc) from carplay AND use Mercedes maps in place of apple ones ? I know on other Merc installs you can’t but many other factory installs let you.

    Hello, I just bought a mercedes cla 2016-2017 but it does not have the option carplay. Can we add this option in another way? Because at Mercedes they told me it was not possible

      That’s unfortunate. I would have thought a 2016-17 model would have CarPlay. Maybe you either just missed out or maybe the stereo you have factory fitted wasn’t the class/line of stereo that comes with CarPlay. A local dealer would know and it sounds like they are saying no. Have you asked if it can be software upgraded?

        I bought a stock vehicle with a lot of options, but not the option carplay.Mercedes bills $ 400 to have the option. I asked if this was possible via an update, the seller told me no. It’s still bizarre
