Mercedes just « confirmed » it won’t come on production before 2020.. not clear if it means never for 2019 models or no update of the MBUX before 2020. But honestly there is no real official communication on the social network. Just people saying that someone from MC confirm that. Don’t forget that the Sprint has it already (and it’s not a joke)! So no reason that 2019 production could not receive a software update with CarPlay. If you read CLA online doc, they are some reference to the CarPlay wireless!

Hi,

First post here (not got the car yet, not till December, hopefully). I’ve followed this problem for a while and I have to say, I don’t agree with their temperatures always displaying because on some of their screens it doesn’t show already.

PS. signed the petition and emailed that head of technology person as well. I included photos showing that they don’t include temperatures on screens. I included these screenshots in the email I sent.

Temperatures on screen is just a big excuse to not implement it ...
I have the Augmented Reality cameras, and every time the camera popup on the screen (front or back), there is no temperature showing.
Also, I imagine is not rocket science create an overlay just for the temperature boxes if this is so essential.

I have just heard that the new 13.4 update has support for wide screens including BMWs, has anyone tried on the A class? it doesn't work I guess.

I still don't understand this, my father's S class works beautifully on full screen on an even bigger screen.

BMWs have always had widescreen and it was widescreen on the Command system on E class (non-MBUX). Doubt 13.4 changes anything.

It’s just a stupid design decision with MBUX

Thanks, I really hate what MBUX has done here. In fact I use CarPlay very little because of this.

I found there is a petition addressed to all Mercedes car owners with the new MBUX multimedia system and wishing to use Apple Carplay on full screen. Already signed by over 12000 persons. Lets reach the goal!

Because they sell the 7" screen, they implemented apple carplay using that resolution, and I doubt (sadly) they'll spend time implementing this for the bigger screens. This is why this doesn't happen for S classes, they don't have a smaller screen.

Should be so small change of code..
I really do hope they will add it. I never use the ACP now just because the small part of the screen. And also because I dont want to connect a cable.. Only on longer trips I will use it because of the warnings of speed cameras and so on.
