I just got a 2018 Smart ForTwo. It came with the OEM Universal Smartphone holder thing. A few questions, if I may:

1. I see that the IOS app to use my iPhone for Nav, etc., is no longer available in the App Store. Is there anywhere to get the old app? Or, is there any third-party app that "kind of" works the same way? Is the phone usable without the App and with the bracket, other than just as a nice plastic place to hold the phone?

2. If I can't use the IOS app, I think I want may want to just take the holder out. But, I can't find a cap to cover the USB port. Does anyone have one to sell or, better, just give me? ;)

3. Does anyone know of an aftermarket Apple CarPlay unit that is fairly easy to retrofit into my car?

Thanks!

I doubt there is any aftermarket Apple Car play unit, for any smart car. Unless you go for a new radio unit.

A old iOS app, I think you out of luck too.

Hi there. I was reading your post and wondering if you were ever able to find the cap to replace the phone holder. I am looking for one as well. Thank you

Nope. But I bought this on Amazon and it comes with an adapter that fits and looks great. Thanks.

Took me forever, but I found the part name and part number! Thought I would post it here for anyone else searching for it too!
It’s called a “Molding For Switch” part number A4538206000. Attached is a photo of the packaging. Tossed out my phone holder as soon as I got this replacement cap in the mail. Looks so much better now! Hope this helps!
