Question about AUX controls on the SLK350

I noticed that in the 2009 SLK350, that you can control the Ipod/MP3 player using the directional controls. I have the 2006 version, and I don't see the MENU that the 09 review mentioned. So - does that mean that the 06 version does not have that capability? Or am I just not doing it right?

Do you mean the directional controls on the steering wheel or on the dash?

On a 06, you could use your steering wheel controls, if you have the ipod kit.

On 2009s, they have the multimedia interface, which allows the dash/center screen display as well.

iPod kit requires COMAND in pre facelifted R171's. Post facelift you can use either the iPod kit or the media interface.

Personally, iPod kit sucks - go for a GW 500.
