I just spent £150 having smartlink activated because I wanted to use mirroring to cast the screen of my galaxy s10plus to the head unit screen.

However Mirrorlink will not work, won't connect. My phone acts as though it's not compatib lucky e even though it should be- when I search my phone I can see mirrorlink1.1 but can't click on it. My husbands phone just gets stuck in a loop downloading some sort of certificate it says it needs to connect.Leaving me with only android auto which frankly is a waste of time as it stops you being able to do other things.

Can anyone help? Is there a way to get mirrorlink working? If not, is there another way to mirror my screen. Want to be able to watch movies when camping. Also is there a way of using android autowirelessly ?

Hi Meji and welcome to this forum. I personally can't answer your problem, but rest assured another member in the know will be along soon.
It helps us to know more about your Yeti to answer questions accurately.
So please tell us model, petrol/diesel, year, location and if you put this in your "signature" it will appear with all your posts. Meanwhile, keep safe.

Hi Meji, have you tried mobile hotspot from settings- connections? I have the same phone and it works wirelessly on my android radio, maybe other units too? Welcome to the forum.

I had the same problem as you so I settled on a workaround with hotspot enabled on the phone which works for me. Another thought is the usb cable, some work better than others

Mirrorlink was used for about 6 months before Smartlink took over.
I thought they were 2 different things with Smartlink doing mush more.
What year is your Yeti?

@onlyme I'm not sure what u mean by hotspot, sounds like you are taking about bluetooth? We had that all up and running no probs before paying 150 quid for smartlink activation.

@Urrell as far as I can tell its more that Smartlink is the gateway to Mirrorlink AND AndroidAuto AND Apple's equivalent. You need smartlink activated in order to access any of them.

Thats why we had it activated - we wanted to use mirrorlink to mirror phone screen on the car's screen.

Yeti is 2017 outdoor model

If this was activated by a dealer, which I assume it would have to be, can't you go back and ask for some support? Either that or a refund if it cannot be made to work. I think I'd like to see it working before coughing up 150 beer tokens. 🙂

They have only had one post here, where does it say 2017 in that?
The post was started by this person (OP).

In post No4 a 2017 Yeti was mentioned by this person, which caused the confusion.

I got the impression that Meji and Milomolly might be the same person!
And it is post #4 that causes the confusion.

Doesn't help having two accounts, especially where the email and IP address differs for each.

Perhaps she could come back and confirm or deny the duplication

I'd be interested to know why you think Android Auto is a waste of time and what it stops you doing. I use it all the time, and can use maps, Spotify/ BBC sounds at the same time, plus make/ receive calls.
What do you want mirror link to do other than the above?

They have said they are trying to use Mirrorlink to watch movies whilst camping, so not a function of Android Auto. The complaint seems to be focused only on Mirrorlink functionality.

The answer is below

If not, is there another way to mirror my screen. Want to be able to watch movies when camping.
The screen is very small and cannot be moved, I would have thought using the mobile as a hotspot for a tablet would be better (assuming there is a signal)
