New to Benz: Question about Navigation, Nav CD and stuff

Hi All!

My name is Jason. I'm new to the message board. I have a year 2000 S500. I've got the full Brabus Kit and have a few more upgrades sitting in my room.

Please help with the below questions if you can. Thanks!

1) Is there a clean Nav Upgrade for the year 2000 style S-Class? I had a Lexus SC430 before and this car and the Navigation was tremendously better. If I look to aftermarket Nav systems then I think it will mess up the physical look of my interior. That being said, if you have a clean interior with aftermarket NAV, please post pics. Thanks.

2) Do you know when Mercedes updates their NAV CDs? If in January, then should I just wait for 2005 CD? And where is the best place to get these CDs?

Thanks so much and Happy New Year!

RE: New to Benz: Question about Navigation, Nav CD and stuff

There will have been several updates by now. Your system will probably never equal what you had in the Lexus. The early MB nav systems were CD based, not DVD based, and don't match the new ones. I did find MUCH more on the updated CD for my 2002 E55 however, and I recommend it. For the western states, that single CD cost me $170.00 at the dealer. I wouldn't change it out to anything else because the voice command and phone are all integrated, but I know what you mean compared to others. It's B.S. that a new mini-van would have a better nav system than my Benz!
