Your phone must be connected to the radio/navigator via USB.

Select the one you wish to use when you connect, out of Mirror Link, Android Auto or Apple Car Play. The connection type shown may depend on the device used. In the SETTINGS menu, tick the box for "Activate data transfer for SEAT apps". A list will appear of the apps compatible with your connection type. When you open an app, you will be able to use the car touchscreen to navigate through it, just like when using your phone.
