What exactly is a "COMAND 2.0 update?" I've never heard of that. Where do you get it? What exactly is it supposed to do? What car do you have?

Welcome a-board!!!

I'd like to see the antz_d answer to this too. Since you called this MY01 update, mine is an '01 so maybe I don't need it, but curious anyway.

I want to answer for him (sorry antz_d), the MY01 update is an update for the software of command 2.0 pre 2001 models, if your command shows the MB star when starting, then you don't need it because it's been updated already. (Musikmann, I think you don't need it)

Thank you farsal. You are correct: I see the MB logo when I turn on the power switch.

I don't see the MB logo. What should I do? Where do I find the "update?" How is it installed? What exactly does it do to "update" my COMAND? I've never heard of such a thing...

Can software be updated in COMAND?
Mercedes and Bosch (the makers of COMAND) have made 3 releases of software-update disks avaliable to fix bugs and improve functionality. The latest release was done in 2002, and is part number W230 589 00 22 00 (known as the Software Service CD MY2001). If you have an older COMAND it adds a nice Mercedes startup logo and predictive text when entering street names.
Note that there are some early E class COMANDS that can not be updated - they just power off during the update process, and you have to remove the fuse to revive them.
