I am trialling Go but it doesn't show in Android Auto on my Mercedes GLE, MBUX head unit. Google maps works perfectly. What do I have to do to integrate it.

    Many thanks to everyone for the help and guidance. I followed the advice and it turns out that it was my lack of familiarity with Android Auto that was at fault. I am now fully up and running with TomTom Go. Appreciated.

    Hi @FileasFogg , please make sure to install TomTom GO Navigation app, version 3.1.0 (or newer).
    Android Auto functionality has been introduced in 3.1.0. If you still face issue, please update Android Auto on you phone to newest possible version, on my private phone I have AA in version 6.4.611714-release.

    Thanks for the info but I have the latest version 3.1.0 of TomTom Go and my version of AA, 6.5.612134, is later than yours.
    When I connect my phone to the Mercedes, with Android Auto, should TomTom Go appear automatically, or do I have to configure, or search for it somewhere. I have checked the Apps on the Mercedes MBUX but it does not appear.

    @FileasFogg you can customise AA launcher and select apps you;d like to see on your can head unit.

    On some types of smartfones e.g. One Plus the AA-App on is currently not able to present different 3rd party Apps.
    In some cases you could try to enable AA-dev mode > allow 3rd party content

    Once AA at the smartfone is customized it should look like this

    Thanks @MUP for this tip!
