Nav System

I was in a 2009 C Sedan and the nav was extremely difficult to operate. To enter an address I had to turn a button and pushed in, letter by letter.

Is the new MB nav system better?

You could have used voice control too.

Can you clarify your preferred way to enter a name, would you like to be able to enter multiple letters at a time, like To ron to ? It would be quite a long list offering all possible combinations of three letters as an example.

If you want to have a full list, you have that if you don't enter any letters at all, or you can enter the first letter and then browse entries in alphabetical order.

Difficult to see what you would prefer instead of the C-class implementation, I though this it the way pretty much all navi devices work.

I prefer touch screen. I found it hard to turn the button and push in the letters.

I have a Garmin and the user interface is very easy... After I enter a few letters, the Garmin would give me suggestions for the road name...
