I recently bought a CLA Shooting Brake 2016, which at that point didn't have any Apple Carplay or Android Auto. In an attempt to get this workig I bought a NTG5S1 ODB2 activation tool for Apple Carplay and Android Auto. After that Apple Carplay and Android Auto became available in the menu.
I have a 2018 CLA 250 with android auto that works off a cable.
Does anyone know if there is a way to change the setup to have it wireless? Is there a dongle that can be purchased to allow this? From my understanding the issue is the head unit, it doesn't allow for it.
I got 2015/06 CLA 250 with Audio20 (522) NTG5*1 head unit with SD card navigation and a single CD. I've taken a picture of my head unit sticker with build numbers.
