Post Can the Navigation Unit from a 2009-2011 SL550 be Fitted into an Older Sl500?

I've got a 2004 Sl500 a buddy of mine upgraded his 2010 Sl550 to an aftermarket touch screen dvd in dash unit and took out his Navigation Unit and has given it to me, I want to know if its possible to make this unit fit into my car, has anyone else tried something like this before?

I know this has been done but it is not that straightforward. I'm not familiar with the R230 but you probably have NTG1 COMAND, likely with Sound System audio (at least a separate amplifier at the rear). The new COMAND would not work with the existing amplifier and it would be important to know if you have other fibre ring devices.

Oh thank you for your reply Deisel Benz, looking at both units the connections in the rear look similar but not identical, perhaps i'll need some type of adapter of some sort to make it work, interesting that you picked up on the amp perhaps being an issue, does that mean that in order to do the swap i'd have to obtain the amp from a 2010 sl550? or would an aftermarket amp be sufficient,I'm upgrading my 2004 sl500 and i dislike the nav unit thts in there now, but i still would like to retain the factory look.

On the 211 that is using an NTG1 COMAND too, the Sound System amplifier is not compatible with the new COMAND, it must be the same with R230 too. It does not help if the connectors are compatible.

I'm not aware of any aftermarket amplifier that fits to the MB MOST fibre interface (fully compatible).
