Yes, unzip and there should then just be one folder on the root of the USB called "SMEG_PLUS_UPG".
As far as I'm aware you can't enable these features on the older cars via software alone - the only methods I've seen are the ones that introduce new hardware but it's quite expensive.I'm new here and would like to ask you for help!
I've been browsing through several pages searching for:
Android Auto activation or Mirror Link activation on:
Cactus RipCurl 2016 1.2 PureTec
Does anyone know the procedure?
I'm about to buy the car this week and want to make sure mirroring or android auto can run on it (now there's only a Browser option).
It's a while since I've done this so I'm a bit foggy but are you using a 16GB USB stick that's formatted to FAT 32?I have followed the above, inserted USB into car, it asks if i want to update but then gives me an error saying compatibility check failed- do you know what this means? Am i doing something wrong?
Does the USB-port in the car connect to the radio so the file(s) can be transferred to the unit, or is the USB-port for charging purposes only? My Cactus is a 2017 model with SMEG5.41.B.R4 of 05-04-16.There have been 4 updates since your version, the latest appears to be 5.43.A.R2
Yes, the USB port is used for the update - when you insert a correctly formatted USB stick with the update files on the system detects this and kicks the process off.Does the USB-port in the car connect to the radio so the file(s) can be transferred to the unit, or is the USB-port for charging purposes only?

In order to update to the latest firmware do I have to upload one file at a time into the unit? So it is with most operating systems: one at a time, because the individual files contain changes necessary for updating to newer versions.
