First time MB owner: S550 (questions)

I have a 2008 MB S550 Iridium and black, lovely.

Quick question: I have the iPod integration kit. Theoperation seemed a bit funky, the dealer told me this is the way it is supposed to work, I wanted to check with y'all to make sure that right. I plug in the iPod (into the connector in the glove box), and the ONLY way to navigate through it is on the screen of the odometer. That is where the function is controlled, by the steering wheel inputs, and NOT the center NAV area which seems to me to be much easier and intuitive for that sort of thing. Example: I cannot use the mousewheel to spin through the artists, I have to click-click-click on the steering wheel to navigate.

Isn't there an easier way... can I get the iPod functionality on the center NAV Map window like everything else?

Thanks for the replies.

No idea but you might get a quicker answer on the W221 (that's what you have) forum. Good Luck!

IPOD adapter does NOT provide control via COMAND--just the steering wheel buttons.
