Update/upgrade 2004 S500 system

Hi folks. I have a 2004 S500 with navigation but it's so outdated now. The car only has 50,000 miles on it, and it's been paid off forever. I don't want to buy a new car just to get the great integrated phone and navigation and all that. Can I just take it to a dealer and have them install a new and great system? I want to do this as a surprise for my husband, but I don't want to take it to an after-market place and have them screw it up. Any recommendations/information is greatly appreciated.

P.S. I know zip nada nothing about cars so please be kind and talk down to me! LOL! Thanks!

What is your site? I am new here and am still learning how to navigate, but I don't see a link to your site. Please advise.

I just looked at it and it says that integrated bluetooth/nav is not available for my year and model.

I'm not interested in just bluetooth. I have an after-market bluetooth, but it doesn't work all that great. I want one just like the new factory-installed ones that includes the in-dash nav, hopefully touch screen, etc.

That can be done in an S Class, but will require replacing the amplifier as well. Feel free to call one of our support guys if this is something you want to pursue and they can help you figure out and sort the details.

Thanks! Do you have shops in the southern California area?
