sound level direction indicator click

As my hearing is not 100% anymore I wonder if it is possible to increase the sound level of the direction indicator clicks.

For example I know that in certain Opel models it is possible to do so in the "hidden menu"
Is this possibility present in my Benz? And if yes, how is it done?

The system is an APS 50 NTG1 (or NTG2, how can I check??)

Additional question: is there a possibility to show the ETA on my navi system?

This is an interesting request but it is not possible. MB uses mechanical relays for the sound effect because it determined their customer base did not like the simulated (a la bmw) sound, this means the only way would be to replace the relay (or remove its cover).

If the 'hidden menu' option isn't available is it worth looking at something like this instead - perhaps wired across the aforementioned relay? They're not expensive and easily available from eBay.

I found the ETA under the info button (along with the current destination) on my APS50 NTG1 system
