Android Auto™

Introduction

“Android Auto™" is an application that can be downloaded from your smartphone which enables you to use some applications on your phone from your multimedia system screen.

Note: to find out if your smartphone or if your country is compatible with the “Android Auto™” app, consult the official site for your phone's operating system.

Note: to find out if your vehicle is compatible with “Android Auto™”, the “Smartphone replication” 1 function must be listed on your multimedia system’s “System” menu.

First use

- Download and install the “Android Auto™" application from the application download platform on your smartphone;

- connect your telephone to your multimedia system’s USB port;

- press the 2 button on your vehicle’s multimedia system screen;

- accept the requests on your smartphone in order to use the “Android Auto™" application;

- confirm by pressing “Accept” on your phone;

- press the 2 button on your vehicle’s multimedia system home page once again.

The application is launched on the multimedia system.

If the procedure described above fails, repeat the operation.

CarPlay™

Introduction

“CarPlay™" is a native service available on your smartphone which enables you to use some applications on your phone from your multimedia system screen.

Note: to find out if your smartphone or if your country is compatible with the “CarPlay™” app, consult the official site for your phone's operating system.

Note: to find out if your vehicle is compatible with “CarPlay™”, the “Smartphone replication” 1 function must be listed on your multimedia system’s “System” menu.

First use

- Connect your telephone to your multimedia system’s USB port;

- press the 3 button on your vehicle’s multimedia system screen.

The CarPlay™ service is launched on the multimedia system.

If the procedure described above fails, repeat the operation.

Note: the “CarPlay™" service will only operate if your smartphone is connected to your vehicle's USB port.

Once the “Android Auto™" application or the "CarPlay™" service is activated on your multimedia system, you can use the voice recognition button in your vehicle to control some functions of your smartphone by voice. To do this, press and hold button 4 on the steering wheel of your vehicle (for more information, refer to the section on “Using voice recognition”).

Note: when you use “Android Auto™" or CarPlay™, you can access your smartphone's navigation and music applications. These applications will replace similar applications integrated in R-Link which are already launched. For example, only one navigation application, "Android Auto™"/"CarPlay™", or the application integrated into your multimedia system can be used.

Note: when you are using the “Android Auto™" application or the "CarPlay™" service, certain functions of your multimedia system will continue to be carried out in the background. For example if you start "Android Auto™" or "CarPlay™" and use the navigation on your smartphone while the radio on the multimedia system is currently playing, the radio will continue to be broadcast.

When you use the “Android Auto™" application or the "CarPlay™" service, the transfer of cellular data required for it to operate may lead to additional costs not included in your phone plan.
