Mercedes-Benz is working on an aftermarket solution to bring Apple CarPlay to older vehicles, reports 9to5Mac. CarPlay gives iPhone users an easy way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch.

We’ve confirmed that at least Mercedes-Benz is looking into aftermarket installations of CarPlay that will allow older models of vehicles to access the feature. While the company confirmed that it is trying to get an “an after-market solution for previous cars” it couldn’t confirm when the option might become available. While there is no info yet on how the aftermarket installation would work, we’d imagine it will be a dealer installed accessory for select older models like Honda and others already offer for Apple’s Siri Eyes Free feature.

Check out some photos of CarPlay in a Mercedes C-Class. You can also watch the Mercedes CarPlay demo video.

I hope Mercedes will have the Apple CarPlay upgrade for my 2014 CLA250 as it is a relatively new car.

Just recently spoke with someone at my dealership about that. They said there will probably be a firmware update for that soon. Check with your dealership.
