I have had my 2014 C1 for a few months now and cant seem to get the screen mirroring to work. All I want to do is use google maps and know that the C1 offers a maps app but as I understand this is rubbish!
I was just wondering if anyone could help or has any solutions to getting google maps (or any other working map apps) on the screen?
Thank you!

You’ll be lucky I’ve got mirroring on my cars head unit which I believe not to work with my iPhone but mine supports Android Auto which would work with an Android phone if I had one.

Mine doesn’t support Apple Car Play so no way to get it connected to my iPhone for google maps purposes but as I’ve said elsewhere the navigation built into the head unit is good enough for me.

My understanding is that screen mirroring (and Android Auto & Apple CarPlay) were introduced in 2018, and that as extra hardware is needed it's not possible to do a software upgrade to your 2014 model.

The only option would appear to be to retrofit the head unit from a 2018 onwards C1/108/Aygo.

I believe if you want to connect an iPhone you need Apple Car Play and if you want to connect an Android you need Android Auto.

The mirroring option has been around for years and doesn’t work with either AFAIK.

Has mirroring always been enabled on the Mk2 C1/108/Aygo from launch date?

My understanding from previous posts on here is different to that...

I don't know about since launch but definitely a number of years before 2018.

I’ve been doing a bit more digging. It turns out that Mirrorlink is open source whereas Apple Car Play and Android Auto are proprietary meaning the best way to connect either would be with their respective proprietary options.

That said most Android phones are compatible with Mirrorlink but the same can’t be said for iPhones unfortunately.
