Hi From Winchester

Post by Otter_111 » Sat Jan 07, 2017 2:57 pm

Hello from Winchester, Hampshire.

Astra Elite Nav in Soft Bronze with the 1.6 CDTI Ecoflex. Added parking sensors, LED Rear Lights, Keyless pack and tinted windows.

Enjoying the car so far (it's just approaching 1k miles). Only issue so far is I Cannot seem to get Android Auto to work? Is it a feature that's still on its way to UK cars?

Hi Otter 111, welcome.

I have an October 16 MY17 car with Intellilink 4.0 with working Android Auto, my understanding is that the AA software update was pulled because of glitches, not the app itself. What does/doesn't your car do? What are you trying to connect to the car?


Please attach photos to this thread, you will be first!

Hi, Otter! Welcome to the forum! :D

Sorry, I haven't got a clue about Android Auto as I must be in a minority of one on here by having a Windows 'Phone!! :o :shock:

Anyway, although a 'cockney' by birth, I used to live not too far from Winchester many years ago before I moved back to London; nice part of the world!
