    Default New ForFour - Android Auto/Apple Car Play?

    I have a 2015 Edition 1 ForFour which doesn't have Android Auto or Apple Car Play. Currently looking at buying a new 2018 ForFour, but cannot see any mention of Android Auto or Apple Car play in any of the brochures/documentation - it only mention Mirrorlink which has never worked in my current ForFour, and is not what I want anyway.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not Android Auto/Apple Car Play is supported on the 2018 ForFour models (with the touchscreen installed)? My dealer didn't know...

    Thanks.

    Hi sorry for the late reply. My new car registered on 19/02/19 supports Android Auto but not Apple Car Play.

    It has the Smartphone Screen option here...





    Named slightly different to the Smartphone Mirroring option on the link below but does the same thing...

    Android Auto was integrated in the Renault factories from week 15 in 2017 for the Clio IV phase 2. The functionality is present on all Captur phase 2.

    I have no idea when the R-Link Evolution with the Smart firmware received the Android Auto update but I have it on my new car.

    Ive got an iPhone and wont be changing to Android anytime soon. So for me Android Auto is just another nice connectivity option. I use USB to listen to music anyway and the units own Sat Nav is good enough for me.
