I bought one off Amazon yesterday -- going to try and install this week. Will document it too.

Next is the illuminated door sills I want to retrofit too that I got from a pick n pull for $10 bucks! That's a tougher job though.

Next time, I'll do the opposite of an impulse buy, and wait for the right truck with all the options [emoji23]

Playing with the electrics can be tricky in these things.

Looks pretty good. Iíll be interested to see if it shows the cabin temp on the bottom of the screen, I like how that stays up in my wifeís C250.
Looks like a nice fit not to big.

Here is a few pictures ...In general, you have everything what you have on your Android phone.

The Android version is 7.1.1 ...

As you see the camera is also working when system is setup in 'original' mode. The size of screen is 8.4" and it doesn't go over ventilation system.

It is showing temperature once you touch any AC button. Also, on top you can see outside temperature. Generally speaking, you shouldn't lose any functionality

Did you have to run the aux cable to the center console for the sound on the android side of the unit to work?

I'm in a pickle where everything is working on the COMAND side with the new unit, and phone calls work through the Android side, but no BT audio.

Yes ... I didn't know what it was cable until I got no sound My installer drill small hole and made it same as original.

As for BT audio, there is another forum with more details about entire process, review,....what I used to pull trigger for this installation. I didn't connect my BT audio but I could be doing so during summer months (purchased device in middle of winter and I didn't have time to configure it)

Let me dig today and send you link

Thank you. I'm just so confused that I was getting audio (calls + bt streaming) thru the android side without running anything to the aux input, and then bt streaming stopped working. Calls still go, which is what befuddles me.
