    If Mercedes are offering to do the update and get the pin code for £110 then bite their arm off. Its a good deal.

    I did mine at Mercedes some 6 or so months ago at £110. Mine lives on the HDD of 4.5.
    The only annoyance was that they kept my car running while doing the update instead of hooking it up to a trickle charger like they should.

    Can’t believe they did that unless it was necessary for some reason. Isn’t the update circa 1hr?

    I just turned to COMAND on and stuck the disks in (NTG4), let it go, no need for trickle charging or to keep the engine running, took about 1hr 30mins, no issues at all

    IIRC you need ignition on (pos 3 just before the starter motor kicks in) or Comand will shut down after about 10-15 mins. That happened to me first time I attempted an update, second time I left the engine running and the full NTG4 update took 2 1/4 hours hence my recommendation to connect a battery charger while updating - which I've done twice since but am now on V12 and can't go further (early NTG4 with small nav partition on HDD).

    Same here COMAND shuts down after 15mins so would have to use a trickle charger

    very risky.

    my car (not this system) does it in 45 minutes, the user instructions from merc specifically state to do it stationary with the engine running

    for any brand of vehicle - never try to do anything on a car with software without some form of additional power supply
    that really means diagnostic scanning too
