2000 E series compatible stereo replacement issues

The CD changer is toast and my Nav CD is acting up. I hear the wiring is MB OEM compatible only. I would like to retain the stock in dash look, and the speakers work fine, what are some options? Is the CD unit from later years compatible? Are there software upgrades for the SAT-NAV unit? I would like to keep it under $ 1500. Help?

I think there have been a couple of software upgrades since 2000. When I had problems with my COMAND unit fortunately I still fell within the CPO warranty period and the dealer replaced it with a new unit. Actually I was having problems with the phone but the tech diagnosed it as a COMAND failure. Further D2B issues got me an analog to digital Tele-Aid upgrade, also covered by that same warranty.

Your question would be better placed in the Audio & Telematics forum in the technical section. From what I've read a few members have found aftermarket upgrades that work and look close to stock.
