Silly question, but are you definately using a data cable? A lot of (cheaper) USB cables sold in shops etc. are charging only.

I'll try on mine in a bit and see if I get the same. Have only tried the Apple Play up until now.
I'm guessing from the picture yours is a W213?

W213 is the chassis code for a late 2016 on E Class

Sorry, it's the model version. The E Class W213 version is 2016 onwards, though there may be some late W212s from 2016 too. There's a good pinned thread in the General section, but you'll find a lot of folks on here refer to their cars by the "W" number rather than just model. Hopefully that helps

Not sure if it is important, but is it in the correct USB slot?

Ok, just tried it in my car, and it only works if I use the USB in the "ash tray" (I know it's not an ash tray these days, bit don't know the modern name!)

I used usb 2
Does your car have a USB in the ash/trinket tray? My old E220d on a 66 plate only had the two sockets in the centre arm rest, but Apple Play worked on at least one of those - can't remember now if I had to use a specific socket and I never tried Android as I was on Windows Phone at the time for my personal phone. The All Terrain has a socket in the trinket tray as well as two in the arm rest, but the arm rest ones only seem to support charging and USB media, not Apple Play / Android Auto for some reason. MB kept making changes to the layout through the life of the W/S213 up to the facelift and things that were optional or part of "packs" became standard and others got deleted. I'm was disappointed that they have removed the rear seat switches from the wheel arch area on my All Terrain so you have to go to the boot to drop the back seat down whereas on the old one you could do it from either the boot or inside the read doors. I guess a bean counter somewhere has worked out they can save 37p a car by only fitting one set of switches :(

Pretty sure what some of the others are saying is correct - phone only works through one of the USB ports. They are clearly marked in my car...one for the phone and the other is for a usb memory stick / ipod etc.
