I just bought a cls 500.it dint come with the nav...anyway i can get it on my car?
PM your email address, I will forward MB install bulletin. If this is a North American vehicle, include VIN if you want a MB datacard (initial delivery date, equipment, codes, etc.).I just bought a cls 500.it dint come with the nav...anyway i can get it on my car?
See the Audio and Telematics forum on this website - has lots of info. Bottom line is "yes"I just bought a 2006 CLS500 and would like the navigation option also that was not included with my package.
Why do you think this?FYI.......It's a beautiful unit, but worthless GPS.
Adjust map scale & symbol display - check COMAND manual.I own a 2006 CLS500 and I have a question about the navigation system. How can I adjust the unit so that all the street names display? All I get now are gas station icons and hospital icons. I like the GPS, the trip routing works well, I just don't find it useful under regular driving conditions if the street names don't show up.
God I hate Mercedes dealers. This is no less than out and out fraud.I realize this is an old string but I have an "old" car! My MB dealership just told me that the GPS module in the trunk of my CLS 500 2007 (European model) is fried because of a water leak. I am hoping to have the actual part reference soon but it is the unit that also holds the GPS DVD. I was quoted $6K to replace it (including labor). When you can buy GPS units for $50 and DVD players for less this sounded insane. He tried to explain that it was the brain that ran the GPS so it was expensive but since I am in the field of technology and I know that processors are worth $10 and the 2007 GPS software was written off long ago his arguments feel on deaf ears. Is there an alternative source for this type of item?
For your VIN (according to Mercedes' parts catalog) the following "Navigation Processor Control Units" will work:I agree - it does not do much for loyalty to a brand. The VIN is WDD2193721A133864 it is a euro model. Thanks much!
FYI 80 or 88 extension indicates MB remanufactured part.The numbers you provide match up exactly with what the dealer's quote cited except that he added an /80 at the end so that it is A211 870 60 85/80.
If you run into trouble, let us know. When I get a chance I'll PM you the instructions.Great. It was not even going to be a new part. Good to know. I bought the replacement and it should arrive in one week. I will let you know if it was plug n play.
