According to NAVTEQ's web site, you have to get the discs from the dealer.

I have a 2001 E-Class with COMAND/NAV and it takes CDs. As far as I know it is called a C-NAV and later ones are D-NAV. Whether this means C-NAV takes CDs and D-NAV takes DVDs I am not sure. CDs are regional (set of 10) but the DVDs are for the entire US. As mentioned only the dealers are authorized to sell them.

In any event, the latest CD release I have seen is 2009 but there might be 2010 out by now. Most of the updates I've bought have been on eBay becuase I don't need the whole set and people sell them individually there. Once in a while, you will see someone here who bought the whole set and is selling the ones they don't need. Keep an eye on the For Sale, Trade, etc forum for those.
