    I bought a CLA in October last year, or rather it was delivered. It was a dealer pre-ordered car so basically I got what they ordered. The only thing I required was the 7 speed DCT which I have.

    Anyway as such it did not have Maps (obtained now from eBay) and CarPlay. I have seen an OBD device that will supposedly activate CarPlay (Apple & Android) providing the car has two USB's (one is used for the Media Interface).
    Mine has these but I understand through the dealer it cannot be activated. Anybody with any experience of either MB activating it or the OBD device. I do intend to speak to my dealership today.
    Thanks.

    If you speak to your dealership, ask for their "Star Expert" who is probably the only one there that would understand your question. The lad at Southampton was very helpful when I spoke to him about Mercedes Me

    My 2012 w204 has a CarPlay button on the steering wheel, but when I press it, it tries to open the navigation, which I don’t have.
    Is this what normally happens?
