Add Navigation to C300

I found a new 2016 C300 I like except it doesn't have Navigation. I am told that the car has been pre-wired for Nav and all that has to happen is to add an SD card. Is this correct and if so, does this make the car the same as if it had been installed with a Multimedia Package?

Are you trying to believe salesman?
With new car- request the dealer to install it.

I am going to have the dealer install it. My question is will it be the same and have all the functionality as a factory installed Unit in the Multimedia Package.

RobHub,

Based on my experience with my Wife's MY2014 CLA-250 4matic that came without NAV and multimedia it will not function exactly like the factory multimedia package. The Wife's 2014 C117 did not come with NAV or multimedia. I did have the dealer install the aftermarket NAV which is OK but the aftermarket does not 'receive' destinations from the Mbrace application like the factory NAV and multimedia does. If it is supposed to I have been unable to do so. Additionally, without Multimedia you can't initiate a phone call hands free from the steer wheel button, only from the center console which was strange. The vehicle was pre-wired for the NAV and I'm also being told the Backup Cam as well, but I have not confirmed the Cam pre-wiring. I'm not sure if this is the case with all non Multimedia Package Mercedes or not.

Hope this helps...

A card is all, yup.
A $600 card that is.
