GPS Upgrade Needed

2012 E350 4Matic sedan with everything on it.
I ask all owners, 45 years and older, of 2012 (and maybe earlier models) that have the GPS, to unite in demanding that MB upgrade the map street names to a larger font! This will allow those of us who need reading glasses to read where we are and where we are going. I for one prefer to drive without having to wear the glasses; especially when sun glasses are required. No, I don't have prescription sun glasses. Even when I wear the reading glasses it is difficult; no matter what map scale I set. Finally, I note the safety factor of trying to read the small print while driving. I had a 2003 Lexus which had the ideal GPS map. Surely MB can match them.
I still give my new MB four and a half stars!

Can your read the car manual? What about the street names at the instrument cluster display?

Are you trying to learn street names while driving or do you really feel you need them to make the decision when to turn?

If MB makes the font bigger, there will be another united group insisting to make the text smaller to make the actual map content easier to read. If you put this selectable, MBUSA requests the option to be disabled (they get complaints from customers who unintentionally switched the mode and don't know how to put it back, we've seen this already).
