Hi I have a 2020 C3 Flair a couple of questions if I may?

1. Do I need my phone actively connected to ConectedCam Wifi whilst driving? As it shows as the connected Wifi option.

2. How do you send images/videos? I have them downloaded to my phone but it doesn't give me an option to send to social media or any contacts?

3. On the Sat Nav when it is connected to my Samsung (Auto Android) and google Maps. Half the screen is taken up with Green box (directions) and White box(Settings) Is there any way to get rid of white (settings)box to give more view of the screen? (Pic attached)

4. On Sat Nav again when directions are spoken the voice echo's any suggestions?

Many thanks and hope all is well with everyone.

I just use the connected cam as a dashcam. You can use the connected cam app to download pictures, but the simplest way of using it is to download via a cable to a laptop. Connect via a standard micro usb cable, and it will act just like a usb stick. You can select any clips you wish to download or all at once. But it isn't the fastest. If you use it as a dashcam it will only record 90-100 minutes before it overwrites.

Although the ads when the car came out it showed people taking photos and sending them, I have no idea how to do it.

Hi

This issue is pure android auto, not Citroen specific.

I suggest you may ask on an android auto forum on how to use it to get the best from android auto.

The C3 has no control over the android auto generated nav mapping software on your phone.

Your display looks just like mine. I find it IOK. Just one point. Ensure you use a good quality USB cable. I had issues with mine until i changed a pound shop cable to a Samsung one.

As a new C3 owner I too would like to find a way to get rid of these green and white boxes.

Can I ask, did you manage find a fix for this?

Most likely way to fix it is to use a different satnav like Waze and see if that is better. I don't have any issue with Google Maps, and Waze seems to be a Google subsidiary so may be similar.
