2011 C300 - Add navigation to Command?

I just picked up my first MB, a 2011 C300 Sport.

The car has the COMMAND system with 7" screen, DVD, etc, but did not come with Nav. However, there is a NAVI button on the unit and when I press it says "No Nav".

My question is: What would it take to add the navigation to it? Is it just a software update, or is there a whole unit that needs to be purchased?

I think I already know the answer, but thought I'd throw it out there and see if there's a bit of a 'back-door' there...

Purchasing factory navigation is generally cost-prohibitive considering I have an iPhone and a Garmin GPS, but hey, if there's a hack or cheap way to activate it why not?

Thanks,
Brian

I don't think we have that option in Europe (COMAND without navigation). Are you sure this is available in the US or could it be that the navigation dabase has not been activated for some reason, or has been disabled at some point?

Would be nice to have the car VIN to be able to have a closer look at it.
