I've got a 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport here and am trying to connect my Huawei P8 Lite (running Android 5.0.1) to enable Android Auto but it doesn't seem to work.

I've connected the phone via Bluetooth and USB together as per instructions and have been able to download the Android Auto app on my phone but the car keeps saying "Please connect a supported smartphone."

Any other ideas on how to connect please.

I noticed that the Mitsubishi software takes a while to load. Wait until the display is active and you have agreed to that annoying safety message before you plug in the phone. Hope that helps.


I assume you mean 2016, not 2015?

Tried that and still same issue unfortunately. The only other reason is maybe the P8 Lite doesn't work? But I don't see how it wouldn't/shouldn't work. Tried two different cables; plugged into both USB ports inside the center storage console. Was pretty excited to be finally able to try out Android Auto but phone doesn't work!

And CarJam shows that my Pajero Sport is a 2015 one.

According to this site...


Only the 2016 Pajero and Pajero Sport support it.

Hmmm I wonder if CarJam is wrong then? Because it's got the "Apps" button on the car's Infotainment system.
