Mine is a 2015 Flair.

I’ll download it tonight.

Thanks

Does this enable Android Auto/MirrorLink?

No. You need SMEG plus IV2 head unit and different firmware.

I assume this also means no update/hack to install Apple CarPlay?

I'm sure we'll be pleased if you tell us about it when you find it.

Downloaded the update, put on a usb stick and installed no problem. Seems a little quicker to boot and sat nav graphics are little nicer.

Thanks for your assistance. 👍

Excellent thread and I followed the instructions and updated without too much of a hitch. I noted that it took a while and the car needed to be "on" so I did the update during a trip that I knew would take a few hours. Whilst the upgrade worked the sat nav had issues until I restarted the car. I cannot notice any difference though. Are there release notes on what the upgrade includes? It's my only update to firmware since purchase nearly three years ago.

Citroen don't seem to want anyone to know whats been changed and I've seen only anecdotal information on changes, which are mostly along the lines of faster boot-up, and after a bluetooth phone call: inhibiting the previously unwanted activation of the radio.
In a Peugeot Forum for the same SMEG plus unit I've also seen comments about loss of stereo when receiving FM radio signals, degraded DAB sensitivity, change of audio delay when using Bluetooth for music streaming etc. But these have mostly been subjective opinions without real evidence of before and after.
