I have a 2018 Mercedes CLA 250. It doesn't have apple car play or android auto integration to my surprise, BUT it HAS the Carplay USB port inside the armrest compartment. (go figure!)

My guess it is missing the software piece to get it to work..

The web site article shows:

  • You must have COMAND NTG5.1 Audio System / Audio20 head unit

Would the Mercedes CarPlay activator for NTG5S1 work for it ?


You should be able to enable Apple Car Play or Android auto. You can either use CarPlay Activator or the dealer can update the COMAND software for you.
