Does anyone have any experience of the wireless CarPlay adapter (CarPlay2Air) with the MBUX?

Its just a fancy carplay dongle. Should work out of the box, worst case you have some delay or interference.
Imo its pricey, but to each their own :)

Would you need CarPlay activated via mbux First? Apparently my a200 nov 2018 is not CarPlay supported.

Yes, you need to have CarPlay activated first before the wireless CarPlay dongle will work.

My June 2018 a200 has it activated. You just need to get the free FU2 update installed by your dealer and then you can select Smartphone Integration from the store app on the MBUX. It’s a paid service though. I think I had to pay £299 for it here in the U.K.

I contacted my local dealer and the techs via the Mercedes me app and I was told it wasn’t available on my car. I’ve got 10” screens with argumented sat nav.

Techs sometimes make mistakes. Can you confirm that you got the software updated? As in you got a store icon on your MBUX system.
Cause what I'm told is that all initial production cars support Carplay or android auto after a certain software version.

So after testing, it doesn’t work on my CLA 2019 (usb-c). MBUX FU2 says : Device is not supported. Waiting for the support of CarPlay2air..

FYI,
Confirmation from CPlay2Air. They don’t support MBUX with usb-c for CarPlay.
I hope they will do something in the future supporting usb-c

Sadly I got this response back from the manufacturer. So it will not work with USB C ports on new A class.

Thank you for your interest in our product!

Our adapter works with Mercedes, however, it doesn't work for all cars with USB C type ports.
