    Hi @Simbru

    If your inbuilt Radio/media unit is CarPlay compatible then you download the Go Navigation App to your IPhone and set up CarPlay on the phone in Settings/General. You need to connect to your Car Media unit via wireless or an USB cable, depending on the how your media unit works.

    We do not test the Android app on built-in Android systems. So it may not work as expected or even stop working. If that built-in system supports CarPlay and you own an iPhone, using the iOS version on your phone is the best way to go. Just as Doug suggests.

    Hi @Simbru

    The App is loaded on your IPhone then to use it on a car that has a CarPlay unit you connect the iPhone via a USB cable or wirelessly to the cars media unit and the App on the IPhone is displayed in the Media unit. The media unit does not have the GO Nav App on it it only has the capability to display the App that is on the IPhone.
