The CD player in the trunk is connected to the head unit with fiber optic cable. So you need a fiber optic compatible CD player and the only one practically available is the one from Benz. In other words, you need to change your head unit if you want a different CD player.

Have you looked into the auxilary cable that hooks up to the headunit. I installed it to my COMAND and it works with anything; iPOD, PSP, walkman, anything with a 3.5mm input (headphone plug). It installs in the glove box. If you want to know anymore I have pics of the install and a DIY write up. Let me know.

Hi Matt,
Do you mean the MB auxilary cable that connects to the AUX audio input plug on the back of the COMAND headunit?

On my headunit (Model No.: 6061) this plug has 3 pins:
1 Low frequency R
2 Screening
3 Low frequency L

Do you know what is the part number for this auxilary cable?
Can you provide this DIY procedure you've mentioned?
Thanks
