I know much has been said in the past concerning the new C1/Aygo/108 touchscreen radio but so much is very old so I wondered if anyone had successfully linked their iPhone maybe even with third party hardware? I cannot get further than Appincar but even trying one of the apps on that I cannot get past the message ‘Launch App’ - nothing happens. I have tried EC Touch,AppRadio,Sygic sat nav.Rang local Citroen dealer who said download My Citroen app which needless to say didn’t do anything. Took the car down to them in the hope of a software update but they told me the radio didn’t have Mirrorlink... I thought they all did so maybe I am wasting my time?Phone works fine via Bluetooth and music plays no problem 2016 C1 Flair 1.2, Thanks.

IIRC Mirrorlink and Air Play were added during 2018, and no software update is possible as extra hardware is needed in the radio.

Further confirmation if anyone is still looking at this issue.

I think Mirrorlink has been around for a while and you've probably got it on your head unit hence why you tried connecting your iPhone in the first place. To do it properly these days you need a head unit that supports Apple Car Play which was added in 2018.

It does suggest however that the Mirrorlink feature supports the iPhone 4 and 4S so I guess there's an option of picking up a cheap used one to use exclusively for googlemaps.

Looking at the Apple App Store it appears the problem is that the AppInCar app only supports the iPhone 4 and 4S, and the app hasn't been updated since 29th Feb 2016 (and appears to only support US maps) - so maybe worth hassling the developers of the app to support later iPhone models?

Time to look for the head unit from a 2018+ C1/108/Aygo and swap that so you get CarPlay and Android Auto? There is a thread on here giving the correct part number...

Just an update if anyone is interested,i have tried Apple hdmi cable with a USB/HDMI cable ,Iphone X ,nothing. iPhone 4S with AppRadio app Appincar App and various sat nav apps ,nothing. I then saw a video - Mirror Link by Performance Acadamy,using a SamsungS3 so i got one and downloaded the Drive Link App and connected it to the car and it works! I cant believe the answer was so simple.I don’t know whether a later Samsung works or not ,i just got the one mentioned in the video and used Google maps.

Can you be more specific on the exact model of the S3 you got. Might be interested in playing about with one myself if cheap enough.

Hi sorry, it’s a Galaxy S3. There are lots of S3 minis about but I got the one in the video, I can’t seem to create a link to the video, but once you have the phone and the app it’s pretty much straight forward, it would be interesting to know if a later Galaxy S works, I got one from a local phone shop for £40. Average condition but working fine, didn’t really expect it to work to be honest! (Via the head unit!)(https://vimeo.com/105347893?ref=em-share
