I'm 100% in agreement with the comments - if you have NTG2.5, I bet they put together a kit - the unit already has video inputs on it. NTG2, I think you are out of luck.

The above said, I think the "carplay" idea takes off in the form of better integration with aftermarket systems - that could be interesting....

Was looking up "Is my car fitted with NTG 2.5?" and found this. Thought I would post it here if anyone wants to know.

http://www.mercupgrades.com/COMAND++...rticle-54.html

In short: "NTG1 was fitted up until Model Year 2009 in the W220 S, W215 CL, R230 SL, W211 E, W219 CLS, R171 SLK vehicles."
