    Default 208 Car Play Feature my dealer says isn't available.

    Good Afternoon Guys,
    I have a PUG 208 GT Line 15 plate (June 2015) that has SMEG6.05.D.R8 (has Mirror Link). I believe from reading on here that CarPlay should be available to me. I have been pestering my dealer to update the touchscreen to the latest software which I believe is SMEG6.1.D.R20 and activate the CarPlay option via the Lexia PP2000/Diagbox.
    They have completely ignored me for ages, but now my service is due I have asked them to update the touchscreen and the service guys have said they will if they have the software available and this would usually occur a charge but if it is possible they will do it this time FOC.

    Could someone please let me know for definite, if the CarPlay addition is available on my car.
    Thank you in advance.

    Carplay is a trademark registered by Apple. Mirrorlink is the brandname for Carplay used by Peugeot and Citroen, thus avoiding the payment of royalities to Apple just to be allowed to use the name Carplay. Technically, they're both the same, i.e Mirrorlink is Carplay and vice versa.

    A Software update might be needed to activate a "flag" in the system software of your unit.
    In other words, your dealer is a twat and needs to be slapped.

    Greetz,

    Had the update done at Peugeot after lots of arguments about it can't be done. Had to explain it to them many times about it needing to be activated through the LexiaPP200/Diagbox. And I am very happy now as it is working on my June 2015 GT Line. Thanks to all that have posted on this forum as you have helped me loads. Cheers guys. 👍🏼
