New to MB and just purchased a 2006 CLK 500. It has nav with the latest 2009 maps, single and 6 cd player, Harmon Kardon. I would like to upgrade with Blue tooth, handsfree, backup camera, maintain the current sound system which sounds better than my newer BMW's, and maintain steering wheel controls and more current navigation. I have been reading on forums and the internet and not being familiar with replacing sound systems, I am lost at what I need. It appears I need an adapter for digital sound from RCA plugs, and I cannot tell from most of the specs whether I can maintain the steering wheel controls.I need a recommendation on an upgraded head unit with current features.

Thanks
Boyce

Hi BThompVaTech, I've / had two 2004 CLK and I upgraded head units in both of them with the capabilities you're looking for except for the reversing camera which I don't need. To maintain compatibility with steering wheel controls you need a set like this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/273145684913?ViewItem=&item=273145684913&ppid=PPX000608&cnac=IE&rsta=en_IE(en_AD)&cust=6LY96660MH906581U&unptid=c0620f00-58e5-11e8-b215-5cb90192ce30&t=&cal=21d473c7aca5b&calc=21d473c7aca5b&calf=21d473c7aca5b&unp_tpcid=email-receipt-auction-payment&page=main:email&pgrp=main:email&e=op&mchn=em&s=ci&mail=sys

I went for this unit which doesn't have all the bells and whistles but is a great fit for me - Android Auto, MP3, Bluetooth etc. https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B06XT2FK82/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Pics attached so you get an idea of what the finished product looks like - I actually prefer the original layout due to wooden trim around the head unit, the post-face lift is just too plasticky...
