W204 Audio 20 Upgrade

I've just upgraded my audio20 to a 7 inch 800X480 touch screen with DVD, TV, reverse camera, GPS natvigation, SD / USB player on my new W204. It works so great. Cost me only about US$800. Except quite a lot of DIY work. All original control and function have been retained. It is not an original part from MB but from China. Nearly one month now, working fine and very satisfy with it. The upper one is the new monitor with IR sensor. It looks smaller becasue the original one is put on top of it.

Here are the results, including Reverse Cam, SD playback, GPS natvigation, DVD playback and TV. All other original function and the control remained the same.

I don't sell the machine, I only post here to share my upgrade. It is made in China, designed to fit W204 LHD but it fits well on my RHD C180. The only problem is the mini USB input is on the Right hand side of the head unit sits on the right hand most of the glove box. I solved the problem by using a L-shaped extension cable.

Yes, I am in HK. The unit was shopped through taobao, a Chinese version of ebay liked internet shopping. But I collect the machine by hand from a seller (who owns a car audio shop) near my place and I installed it to my new car myself.
