Does anyone know how to set the Satnav to flag up speed cameras and also give an audible signal? I have just updated my Satnav to the 2016 version and really disappointed I can't get it on POI's!!!

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

I'm sorry, but I can't help by answering your question... if you share a little more about which SLK you have, perhaps someone else can help instead...

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.

Thank you

What is the model year of your SLK? North American or European version? What type of head unit do you have? Speed cameras still exist?

@Ladymerc, Thanks for updating your profile with your location and car model. If you have the NTG1 head unit (which you will have if it's the original sat nav that was installed in the car when it was built - that's what I have in my 2005 SLK), then I'm afraid you're very limited with what you can do, and that also means you can't (as far as I know) install speed camera POIs on it at all. Also, the main thing I miss with my factory sat nav, is not being able to enter full postcode for a destination address... I updated to 2015 maps last year, hoping it might address that, but should have done more research first... as that's not possible with the NTG1 either. :(

I use Waze on my smartphone when I want to know where speed cameras are, and with alerts too... I have a windscreen suction mount for the phone, so it's nice and easy to see the alerts too. :tu:

If you want to know more about what your car shipped with from the factory, why not request your free datacard? - from my original welcome message...And, now that I know you have an R171 SLK, here's a little more info too...

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Download your car’s brochure:
Finally, don’t forget to lube those seals:

Dear Dave,
Thank you so much for your reply, sad but I thought that would be the answer,as I've sat on the drive for hours going through the Sat Nav menus!!! To no avail! Anyway, have downloaded Maze and on first looks, seemso to do the job, so thank you ! And yes it is a bummer not being able to put in the full Postcode, been used to a fully functional up to date Sat Nav on my last car! This is my very first Merc, and other than the Satnav problems, am thrilled with it. Will post a photo as soon as the weather gets better!
