    The CAPMB-51 states this on compatibility:

    "Compatible with Audio 20 systems in vehicles with a production date of 12/15 or later. Vehicles with a production date of 11/15 or earlier will need a firmware update at the dealership prior to using the CAPMB-51."

    I've entered the engineering menu on my NTG 5.1 with no Carplay available and it actually shows you the Carplay and Andoid Auto stack versions installed plus it shows an item under Mirrorlink. Even when you plug and Android Auto enabled smartphone the supported protocol version shows on the Audio 20. But since it seems that displaying the Android Auto and Carplay itself is disabled nothing can be shown. I don't think there's a requirement for a firmware upgrade, it's just a variant coding question. Even having no GPS shouldn't result in impossibility of at least enabling and connecting a smartphone to Audio 20, but all 3 dealers I've asked to have stated that enabling that is just impossible aftermarket, and that I must stick to what I've got...
    s_a_y_a and viames like this.

    Just hold hang up + # + 1 on the central console and the a menu will pop up. Please don't change any value or enable anything if you don't really know what you're doing, there are features like EMC test that should only be used for calibration/testing/certification.

    Some of us are tweak nuts so its cool.
    And you are sure yours is a 5.1? Do you have a single or 6 DVD head?
    Cuz quite a few folks with >2015s were trying to get into the EM using the same 📞#1 trick but no luck...

    OK ... then your particular E/M access has been activated. Great.
    Aside from the key sequence I suppose you can also access by just holding right with the scroll wheel?

    I did indeed try that but to no avail, only the three buttons combination seems to work...
