I may have to pull this carpet out to sacrifice my curiosity or eliminated for good.
Glovebox removal : Remove wood dash board first after remove two L& R fuses cover then you will remove around 9 scews ( 2 underneath- 1 liitle insiide upper left of glovebox- 2 under wooddash boards removed and could be 3 or 2 on right side after remove R fuses cocer) . Wood dash board is snapin type from top DO NOT fry it from the bottom due to clear sensitive LED light lens.

Well be sure to let us know what you find. When running my wires for the new Android radio install I did not see any wires like that. I had the dash and underneath the glovebox apart, but could not figure out how to get the glovebox out.
This wire is continue goes to ( under R side carpet) to the trunk and end up to and un hook at battery compartment I would said PO was tryied to have continuous power supply for some new personal portable equipment at the center console but never finish, I may take this opportunity. At this time I am graful to know your are the only one who is installing a new Android to up grade cause I am serious want to have newest Android 11 car play with touch screen ( Ebay for less than $600 :rolleyes:) but just wandering how much reliable this unit is ??) Please give me some courage :D.
Thanks for the responses, I am not going to wait any longer for this regardless re remove dash parts to install this Car play up grading, isn't difficult to me to do this ( Was fun any how) . Bottom line is you are having a few hiccups ..
#1- Parts for better Mic and GPS antenna jumper : Optional from same supplier ?
#2- What is MMI adapter ?
Happy to hear ya happy with this so far..
Here is : ( Ebay item #293489655174 )
Great 👍 , just a little more info researching now on my end. Will be in touch Sir.
Wow , good to know these versions capabilities and operatreable to our W221 production year, I am interest on Android 11 as per model and supplier showed above on my post. When involve to our modern electronic gagages these days plus with my narrow ackolegement mind I would stay with a much simple unit to buy and use such as GPS-Hand free Phone and so on.
Are these pictures come from your recent install Android 11 car play ?
Look pretty good as like late modern Benz today..I may go for this route, Bottom line our 2007 W221 Benz support flatform os NTG 3,0 ? I see some newer Android 11 don't mention NTG 3.0 but 4 or 4.5 and up.
Lastly quest is your model support rear backup cam ? I did pre wire rear cam from trunk to dash board ready for this.
Yes I see @ both $ for NTG 3.0 and 3.5 ( same price ). I dont have Mfg cam but after market ( Pretty reasonable).
Now it's time to nawrrow down my option whatsa priority needs than want.
Thanks for chatting with passing experiences and great cheers to you.

I will order this unit from your referral Amazon, but will ( if needed ) order more of other misc items but for sure is the must have rear backup cam.
