    Anyone successfully added Android Auto to their MMI?

    Click here.

    I have this in my car, albeit I use Apple CarPlay rather than Android Auto, and can recommend it. Other members have sourced similar units via AliExpress.

    Did you fit that yourself? (looks reasonably straightforward). albeit not sure where the mic would go as I already have one in there for the MMI high system.
    Also, any issue with the touch screen layover, does it affect the standard screen resolution/image much when using say the radio only?

    No, I don’t have the skills for retro fitting. I got it installed professionally at the same time as my Autowatch Ghost. And the touchscreen isn’t compatible with the MMI 3G+. I use the MMI controller and/or the left steering wheel button. That suits me better than stretching my finger into the screen recess.

    Forgot to add, the mic was located centrally at the front edge of the headlining. It’s invisible unless you crane your head to look for it.

    The kit from Aliexpress is a 1/3 of the price, uses the original mic and takes 30 minutes to fit

    I think I'm being a bit of a div here, having only ever used Android Auto in cars suitablly equipped, I tried it in my 2016 plate S5 last night, and it would seem I can get the same fucntioinality, but using my phone, and the Bluetooth streaming functionality into the MMI 3G high taking care of the audio element.
    I'm assuming the main bebefit of this module is that it places it in the MMI screen as opposed to the phone itself?

    Now that seems like it could be a better option for me, for the small inrease in convenience. Any links to a product which will work for the 3G high unit please? (I'd prefer to buy from a recomendation of someone who actually has got one which is working)
    Thanks

    Check out the thread l linked to above, a few people have bought the kit. It's not perfect but you can't really expect it to be when you consider the cost

    What year is your vehicle and which MMI do you have?
