Smile Greetings! What a wonderful site!

Quick intro as seems to be a requirement for newbies:
Just got a 2013 slk250 a month ago and would like to make it more "friendly".
Installed a transparent wind deflector and remote start a couple of weeks ago. Would like to install a few extras as follow: 1) constant cam pointing at the rear(not just back-up camera), 2) In-car DVR for accident and possible vandal issue, 3) two constant side-cameras, & 4) video-in-motion.

For in-car DVR, does anyone know what brand and model has the best quality, with the most recording capacity 64GB/128GB SD card, and each recorded file has zero lag/gap between files, and most friendly interface?

And for video-in-motion, I don't seem to be able to play DVD movie; however, it has navigation. Does anyone know if I can enable some kind of firmware to allow playing DVD movie (I don't mean by video-in-motion yet, let me get through the hurtle of getting DVD movie to play first). May be a certain version(s) of the Command unit will allow enabling DVD function??

Thanks!

Regards,

Black 13slk250

Welcome to the elite SLKWorld forum!

Just a few suggestions to make your time here a fun and informative experience...

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information. Click “USER CP” on the upper right, “YOUR CONTROL PANEL” will show on the left, below is ‘Your Profile’ click on ‘Edit your Details’, scroll down to ‘Additional Information’ and fill it in.

The "Search" feature at the top right of the page is for searching the forum. Many questions have already been asked and answered by our knowledgeable members.

If you are having difficulty finding a solution, you can post your question in the appropriate discussion forum. By doing this, you should receive a quicker response, but please be patient as the forum is worldwide and members live in different time zones.

Private Message (pm) is a tool to communicate with other members privately for instructions or just chatting. In order to do this you must have at least 15 posts. It's easy to obtain the posts by clicking on the New Members Introduce Yourself Here section and just welcome the new members (like we welcomed you).

To post a picture, either start a new thread or reply to one, type what you want to say and click on the 'paper clip' just above, this will open a window to your left, click on 'browse', go to your pictures, and double click on the one you want to post, click on 'upload' and then 'submit' your post.

If you like a comment or want to thank another member for their post, there's a 'like' button to the right and just below is the 'thanks' button.

As a new member you can use the New Posts link at the top of the info bar. It's a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.

When you are ready to leave the forum just click on "Quick Links" and click 'mark forums read', this will clear your screen for when you log on again.

Post your vin in the Vehicle Data Card Request section to get a data card (options on your car) free.

As a member you have the privilege to vote and/or enter our Ride of the Month competition, we welcome new SLKs to compete and new members to vote.

If you have any questions/comments please let us know and we will be happy to help you.

Thanks for joining our SLK family!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your location and vehicle (model and year,ie 2007 SLK 350) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’.





Thank you

Greetings from Tennessee !

You'll probably have to hack your way in to get the DVD to work in motion, and the disadvantage of having a 172 is that we haven't had as much time to play with them. I would start with someone who has access to an Star Diagnostic System to see if there is a setting for it.

Welcome to the Forum.

Hi and Welcome from East Coast USA. I was thinking about adding a remote starter for my car. Did you got it install from car alarm shop or at a dealer? Any problem issue if it an aftermarket system?

Installed myself because I like to open things open and save a few bucks at the same time. The unit installed was Mid-City Engineering's remote start. No problem yet. However, I would prefer another way of starting rather than a very brief press of the panic button.

Good luck to you.

Make sense.

I talked to a MB service gent and a parts gent from "Hagertown" (a city in the state of PA). They seem to be different than the other MB dealer guys that I talked to before. These two didn't rush me and did make me believe they were trying to find an answer for me, regardless if that is the only possible answer. Ok, enough said on that.

So, what I eventually told was that I have a Radio "20". And even I want to pay big bucks to replace the command/radio/navi, I can't; Because Radio "20" will only work with the rest of the components, while Radio "50" will only work with Radio "50" components.

I may have to find after-market item(s) to achieve that.

Regards,

Will
