Hello fellow Benzer's. Excited owner of a 2006 SLK 280. Unfortunately the more educated and informed I become, the more I realize what the car can do and what it does not have. A example, Comand said NAV, was pre-wired. You would think ,OK needs a drive a disk and GPS antenna. Come to find the head unit is not even capable of function for NAV. So what does pre-wired actually mean? Love the ride but disappointing that I need to go to after market for GPS. :crying:

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.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the COM(M)AND system rely on a DVD? And wouldn't that data be ten years old and outdated by now? Our 05 e320 has that but don't have the disk and I see no point since, as I stated, it would be outdated.

Comand (1 m) does not rely on a dvd
nav if an option, depends on a dvd
the comand needs a dvd for an updated comand
the slot above comand is for cd/dvd musico :D
