Apple CarPlay on Citroën cactus 2014

Post by Bobojan » Wed Oct 09, 2019 9:45 pm

Hi all.
I have just bought a Citroen cactus c4 and I have CarPlay installed from the car dealer. I will post some pictures on system firmware that I can not find anywhere on the internet. The problem is sometimes it shows demo on the bottom corner.

Wow, this is huge. I think a lot of people want Apple CarPlay in their 2014-2017 Cactus, but I thought it's not possible without 3rd party hardware.
Can you get more information about this demo software by any chance? I'll ask my local dealer as well when I get there.

It is similar to the software / firmware that is in the new model 2018, I have tried running the new Cactus and dare to claim it is quite similar.

Didn't think this was possible? can you take some more pictures, also of your steering wheel (new buttons), how to turn it on / off?

Hmm is it possible that the photos are not from a 2014 Cactus? Both Apple and PSA officially state that CarPlay is not supported on the 2014-2017 models...

I'm looking to buy a used C4 Cactus but would prefer to have CarPlay. According to Apple https://www.apple.com/ios/carplay/available-models/ CarPlay is only available on 2017 models and later.

I read in other threads on this site viewtopic.php?f=19&t=3105&hilit=carplay that the climate controls prevent a "simple" hardware upgrade to SMEG+IV2... similar to what this guy did with his old Mustang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbZg-YzbUJQ&t=402s

Does anyone have any update? Is there any way to get CarPlay on pre-2017 models?

Could it really be that the author of original post in this thread is confused about what model car they own? :shock:

Hello hello. I finally discovered what it was. It calls Carvision ASMML8500 and it’s quite expensive (about €500)
