I think you're referring to COMAND, which is not the HU, but the 'brain' of the car. ISTR it stands for Cockpit Management and Data system? At any rate, you have a few options as far as CarPlay.

1. You can get an aftermarket HU with CarPlay, but this may be clunky and you may have a hard time finding an installer to take on the challenge.

2. You can upgrade the monitor to an Android monitor 10.25" touch screen

3. You can add a third-party interface ( Joyeauto, Unichip, icartisan, & many more.)

For some reason, the C and S classes were omitted from the Mercedes retrofit kit for CarPlay/Android Auto. ISTR, it had something to do with COMAND 5.2?
