Samsung Galaxy S8 and MirrorLink

Hi all,

Just got a new phone and wanted to know whether it will ever be possible to use the MirrorLink thing. (couldn't with my last Sony Z3 Compact)

I plugged it it, connected via bluetooth and USB, scrolled to the right hand screen and it says "Phone Not Compatible"

I'm not that bothered but is there anything I can do to make it work as Satnav on the large screen would be a bonus.

Thanks!

As far as i know the issue with mirror link not working on newer phone is not due to the phone itself but rather the version of andriod that honda use on the connect system. Its android 4.something.
unless honda update the android version then mirror link wont work with any phones like s6 or newer.
It only works with phones released around the time of the Samsung S5 or older. The same issue applies to android auto. In that it is not compatable with the android version running on the system.
