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


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a datacard (options on your car) free.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Welcome and thanks for joining.

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.

NAV not working

Thanks for the suggestions, the DVD for the Nav in in the trunk. It is an original DVD. In the two weeks I have owned the care It has worked twice. Pretty frustrating.

original dvd? some people buy what they think is an original dvd from mb off the web and all it is is a pirated copy that won't work and will kill your system and they put a real looking label on it.

Welcome.

Haven't encountered this one myself. I run a legit DVD-R backup copy of my original Navteq DVD in the car because I just always make backups of expensive media. It might be productive to run the DVD through Toast on your computer to verify the media. Maybe there's dust in the DVD drive so try ejecting the disk then running a vacuum cleaner nozzle across the disc slot on the nav computer. You might also try a DVD cleaner/wipe even if you don't notice any scratches, some brands seem to polish or lubricate the media.

How old / what version is your map DVD? Maybe it's been sitting in place so long the mechanism is sticking a bit. Just a few more eject/re-insert cycles may work the DVD loading mechanism a bit and improve alignment.
