    Apple Car Play

    Hi All, this is my first post! Hope someone can help.

    I own a MY19. software updated to latest version 19. Everywhere I read I find that from version 18C onwards, Apple car play is included. Not on my car!! I got SOTA with latest update however and it works well.

    Dealer insists that although I have InControl Pro, Apple car play cannot be installed because I do not have the sim slot in my car configuration and I only have the USB ports in the centre console - photo attached.

    All online research points to the result that what dealer is saying is rubbish.

    Has anyone here had apple car play installed in his car without the sim slot port in his car configuration please?

    Thank you all for your help

    I’m afraid your dealer could be correct. I have a lux, no sim, only 2 usb and no option for ACP, even with SOTA enabled. All depends on the country specs.

    I had Apple Car Play added after purchase to my MY19 SE, but it already had the SIM card slot.

    Thanks Guys. Interested to know the technical reason why without a sim dot, ACP cannot be installed. Any ideas?

    Here is a post from AULRO that might be of interest, as it seems not all is lost for those without a SIM slot. The module can be retrofitted.

    i have actually purchased this, i'm awaiting the cable to arrive and found the hardware for a decent price on ebay.

    unfortunately unless you have a friendly, flexible dealer who's willing to help you out then it's a little hard as you need access to pathfinder etc... unless you live in Australia and these guys can do it for you.

    will keep you posted, hopefully i'll be able to take some pics of the process.
