Do you mean replace with an updated oem unit.
Or with another make/after market unit?

Many threads on what has been done.

Yes, I mean replacing A50 APS with Comand NTG1 from the same era. Searched the forum but found only threads about replacing A20 with Comand. Do Comand NTG1 have also connections for fakra and fiberoptic as A50?

@curro101 you're more familiar with the connections. Thoughts?

AFAIK should be a straight swap. Comand NTG1 has fiber but no fakra. Fakra on APS 50 is for the GPS antenna. APS50 has navigation hardware inside the unit. For Comand it is a seperate unit in the trunk. But as you say you don't need navigation that would not be a problem. NTG1 does have a AUX input on the back. Something that the APS50 lacks.
Hope this helps.

Many thanks for help! Moral of the story- always ask and you will be given. Earlier this year I swapped my APS 50 with chinese android HU whitch I happened to have from one of my previous cars and couldn't understand why radio reception is so bad. Amplifier seemed to be in order. At last I bought aftermarket antenna and hide it inside windshield frame.
