I too have a 2012 W212 (e350) and would like to upgrade Nav. What would dealer charge for this DVD? Someone have one? Ebay perhaps?

Because of the sensitive issue with copyrighted material, members are discouraged from buying NAV discs from other members.

It's also been made known that the latest versions apparently have a one-use product license key (similar to programs you'd install on a computer) essentially preventing them from being used or pirated by others.

As Elmer Fudd said " be bery, bery careful".

I bought, to my chagrin, and update for my 2011 with the idea that I would share costs with other owners in the club.
I did mine and another member came over with his 2011 and when we went to load it the system would not see it. We suspect that they are coded as a one time use item.
I initially thought to buy on eBay but to a vendor every time I asked could I return it if it didn't work they said no. I wonder why.
The better question to ask is should you do it in the first place?
I found my little old Garmin Nuvi 40LM right up to date with major roads and minor roads in the Vanouver area and also my iPhone Google Maps.
In spite of a major perimeter ring road in Vancouver being under construction since 2008 and having been opened in 2013 the update in July 2014 did not have it.
As far as I am concerned I would never have MB navigation again. The update is expensive ($200) and is not current. I wasted my money.
Better to buy a good after market like a Garmin with life time maps and be done with it.

I think the nav system will soon be completely outdated if not already. You can already link your computer through Mbrace (sp?). Soon your phone will link with the command screen. Maybe already does.

A year ago I bought a 2011. Part of the deal was that they had to update the nav. It will be fine now until the car is used up.

Guys! Do not get involved with resales on eBay.
Much to my chagrin, a couple of guys in the club and I agreed to share the cost from MBC of an upgrade last year.
I did mine and that was it. It would not do any other car. They are a one time use item so if you buy on eBay you likely will find that it will not load.
Also be aware that once you "update" it will still be behind by two years.
The South Fraser Perimeter Road around Vancouver was started in 2008 and opened December 6, 2013. The April 2014 update did not have it. When challenged NavTeq said they always were two years behind because they needed to verify all changes. Duh!
Google Maps and my cheapo Garmin Nuvi 40LM had them in February 2014.

Perhaps it is a thing that MB Canada does but my views were confirmed by my service guys and they offered to compensate me for it.
If MBUSA allows multiple uses that is great but consider this.
I contacted an eBay seller before I bought mine and asked " If it does not work can I return it for a full refund if I pay shipping?' The answer was NO! One has to ask why.
Caveat Emptor my friend.

Models 216 and 221 as of MY2010, 207, 212 as of MY2011, 172, 204, and 218 as of MY2012 MB introduced navigation copy protection on navigation units with hard drive. Installation of updated map data requires a six-digit alphanumeric activation code, without this code the map update would not be possible. The activation code should be written right onto the DVD or the cover.

Absolutely correct but not to belabor the point even with that this disc from MBC would not load into the second vehicle. Being selfish I am glad I did mine first.
As I said, folks need to be careful buy it from eBay. At worst I would call MBUSA and ask if multi use is allowed.

They rape you on Nav updates and keys. Includes Porsche too

Use iphones at least for NAV
