Need Updated DVD for Comand 2003 E320

Hey guys!

I have a question, I am trying to find the DVD to update my COMAND system for my 2003 E320. I have the DVD Navigation system, but all the newer DVDs I find say they will only fit 2004+. For instance BQ6-46-0216 (2006.1) says it will only work on 2004+. So to my point, I'm hoping that someone will know the true answer. Can I upgrade to the 2006.1 DVD? Will it work on a 2003 DVD-ROM based NAV system?


Thanks!

Are you sure you have a DVD based system and not a CD based system. I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure the DVD system didn't come into use until 2005.

The drive where I put the NAV disk says "DVD-ROM", so I'm assuming it's a DVD drive lol

I thought DVDs were newer than 2003 too, so thanks, I learned something today. I'm trying to update my 2001 CD COMAND-Nav because I only have a CD with a 2000 release date. The parts guy at my dealer is trying to help me, and I'd advise you to do the same thing. You can always call MBUSA too (800-FOR-MERCEDES), but I just did that today, and the guy's info is in conflict with what my parts guy is telling me. Good luck!

I would have expected a CD NAV on a MY 2003 car too but this link shows that on a W211 a CD NAV was used on the Audio 50 system while Comand was already at this time DVD based.

So any ideas on what or how to update the system's Nav Disk? I have confirmed that part #BQ6-46-0216 DOES NOT work. The guy at the local dealership said I needed a entire set of CDs but I told him the drive I have says DVD-ROM on it and then he replied "Then part # BQ6-46-0216 will work". WRONG! It will not work. So now I am back to square one. The disk I have now says it covers the entire country on one disk. Any more suggestions?

Try http://www.ebay.com I was looking earlier for COMAND Nav CDs and I saw several DVDs up for bid. Look at eBay.motors and search in the GPS-Navaigation section.

Hope this helps,
