C Class new buyer queries for the experts!

Hi all,

Been reading the forums a while and have joined to ask a couple questions of the experts if I can please!

In the UK and went to see a very early (June 14) W205. C Class 220. Couple things concerned me wondered if a yone has experience...

The menu button in the middle of the dash didn t seem to do anything when sat in the radio mode? What should the menu button bring up? The rotary wheel n touch pad seemed to work. I'm new to the system so it could be me.

Dealer told me it had sat nav but a code of 355 pre installation ready sat nav comes up on vin search. System says NONSD installed. Is that literally all I need? Along with 522 audio 20. Is there a major difference from audio 20 to command? It seemed slow but I can live with that!

When I hit the voice speech on steering wheel it didn't do anything what should it do or this an option turned off?

Clicking noise when switching to max fan speed and windscreen max. Assume motor gone / going?

No SOS button as module built in believe this was from Sept 14.

Anyrhing else I should be wary off? Car randomly didnt start once when I turned the key! Nothing. Took key out and back in started easy. Something I've missed again?

Thanks for any help realise that's a lot of questions but it's a big buy for me!

Hopefully I can Participate more when I'm an owner 😊

The non start would concern me. Some options in the command may be off but the menu button should bring up the menu straight away. I would keep looking if I were you.

With Audio 20 voice activation only works for the sat nav, which requires an SD card which is plugged in the centre armrest cubby hole. These can be purchased on ebay.

Please put your location in your profile. And do yourself a big favor. Stay away from early 2015 C300. I am sure you will be able to get one for very low price, but you will pay later. They were plagued with problems and by now it is probably no longer under factory warranty.
