Re: Controls Radio, CD Changer, Phone, Navigation, etc.
I tried finding 'just the right amount' of info on COMAND, came upwith a short description from MB:<br> Console mounted screen and controls.<br> Manages the vehicles audio system, navigation system, and display settings.<br> Integrated with the multi-function steering wheel and display. <br> <br> Comes up kind of short I know. In a nutshell, it's not all that different than a radio with a built-in nav system, which actually makes it a pretty good deal when you realize how much a built-in nav system usually costs, and it actually looks pretty good in the car, not a pod-type system. One drawback is that the maps are CD-ROM based, other manufacturers use a DVD based, which gets you down to a single disc instead of around 10 discs to cover the US, buy there may be drawbacks to the DVD system i'm not aware of.<br> Consult the dealer or the www.mbusa.com website, I'm sure there is more comprehensive info available if you look around a bit.<br> Gilly<br>
