    So I would like to setup a way to have my GPS app (Waze) to display on the auto-radio screen.

    I went to Seat but they guy in charge wasn't here, so the other guy told me it should be between 200-300$, take an hour, and don't need any hardware, just a license activation.

    Due to the fact that I am on MiB1 I am sceptical about those information.

    I did search quite a lot on youtube and amazon and there a lot of device you put between your phone and auto radio, but mainly for Mercedes.

    Any idea or suggestion ?
    Have you recently upgraded your Leon to AppleCar Play (or any other mirroring app)

    Is your USB in the glove box or under the head unit?

    I recently had full link activated in my 2016 1.4 FR. It cost me in total about £180 (approximately €215) which included the fee of £150 to activate the software and a new connector at the back of the USB port to support Apple CarPlay. Android Auto worked without the connector but Apple CarPlay needed an upgraded part. My unit I believe is a MIB2. If I remember right from my research before I got it done it’s not possible on the MIB1 units but I could be wrong....

    Thanks for your very detailed answer.
    So what you say make sense to what I have read/watch :
    1 software update
    1 hardware piece
    Make me think I can get the software for free (somehow...)
    And I can get the hardware part for much cheaper, let's say 30€
    So it would be 30€ instead of 200+

    Now there is the whole MIB1 vs 2 thing which I struggle to find information about...

    From what I'm aware if the usb is in the glove box it can't be done, unless you get a huge list of parts like mib2 screen etc, then quite abit of coding
