I have a 2003 ML320 with Nav and it uses the DVD not the CD. I noticed the version I have is 2002-2. Assume that since this vehicle was assembled in Fall of 2002 but marketed as a 2003 it go the older disc until they ran out of them or simply waited until a 2003 disc became available but never upgrade customers who bought early.
Does anyone out there have a newer disc that might work in my NAV?
Do the disc have to be original or can the be burned from an original?

I hestitate to call the dealer and ask for the price of an upgrade.

PM me if you think you can help me in this matter of a newer DVD for the NAV.

Thanks

The Command MCS I disk for 2008-2009 for the DVD based Nav cost me 169.00 at the Dealership. They sell them for I think 199.00

Wife works for Mercedes. But I'm sure if you know your Service guy, he could get it for you at discount.

Thanks for the tip. I tried and I am directed to contact my local dealership to purchase the DVD.
Here's where I ended up Mercedes-Benz | Distribution | HERE
I contacted the dealership last year about purchasing an updated nav DVD, they told me all part numbers have been superceded to a discontinued DVD. :cry:
Has anyone tried making a copy of their nav DVD?

Yes you had no issue for a 2009 SL.
Rabbit is dealing with a 2003 ML same as mine, Not available.
Did You try searching for a 2003ML?

Discs are not ordered by year of disc but by the year of the car.

You guys realize paying for GPS maps in 2020 is absurd.

  • Yes I looked for year and model. Chart shows disc for M Class (same as ml?)2003 as MCS1
Yes MCS1 is the correct disc, but it can not be ordered online. The order page says contact dealer at least that is what I get. If you have a link to order it just help Rabbit out and post it. When I first got the ML I asked at the Benz parts counter they told me not available. MCS1 is also from 2006, quite a few roads have been built since.

If some one wants a copy here is an ebay link;

I agree, that is why I just use Seri on my I phone. It would be fun to have a disk just for shits and giggles but I would not pay more then 20 for the entertainment value.
