Update to my post below. Info and Help needed PLEASE.
It is amazing as to how much more we at benzworld know about our cars,parts and part numbers then the MBZ dealer.
The dealer tells me that the prior owner of my S500 2004 did not use the navigation system for a few years and that although I have a DVD 2004.1 disc, it is outdated and the system has to updated ( navi unit in trunk and command in dash) with an update / service disc and a new map disc. before I can use the navigation system in my Benz.
That will be $785.00 ( parts & labor). I have searched the forum and learned that I can get a service disc and a new map disc from the MBZ parts department and "Do It Yourself" and save on the labor & parts.
Problem is the search results are old 2003-2005 and the service disc part numbers are different now then what I found here. The MBZ parts dept does not know the new part number for the 2009-2010 service disc. Can anyone please shed some light on this. Iam I going about this correctly or do I need to bite it and let the dealer to do the entire update?
Thanks for your replies, and insight with this.
Hello All, Please help and thanks in advance for your replies.
Yes, I did a search for my problem, but could not find any relation.
Here is the problem, I purchased an MBZ S500 2004, 51,000 miles, Black / Charcoal, Florida.
I have the COMMAND DISC that came with the car " COMMAND DIGITAL ROAD MAP" North America, USA/Canada 2004.1 When I insert the disc I get a map and screen that shows the menu. After a few minutes, I get a screen that says, " NAVIGATION" WRONG VERSION OF NAVI DVD NAVI IN UNIT. voice command says, NAVIGATION IS NOT ACTIVE.
My Mercedes-Benz service says I need an updated DVD installed $300.00.
Now, I see that at one time the navigation was working because there are old routes programed, why would it not work now with the old version? Any ideas / suggestions?
