Android Auto - Apple Car Play - Android Auto Install

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.. 

I saw the post:

Then looked at the MB VIN Decoder for the benz and it shows:

Code 522     AUDIO 20 RADIO NAVIGATION CAPABLE NTG5

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 ?
