What type of unit do you currently have fitted? ;)
Nothing!The last owner removed his upgrade,(was pioneer I think with sat nav) all that remains now is the empty space where the origional mercedes radio was and the wiring clusters with one extra live feed wire coming from the fuse box,(he said it was for a live pulse for his DOUBLE DIN SYSTEM. Thanks

There are some on Amazon but do your research if you want to avoid disappointment.

This would be the minimum spec. I would want to use. I can’t vouch for this brand though.

what an amazing price that unit is.

If it fits or not you should contact seller for dimensions and check your dimensions too. You may need a surround to finish it off. Not sure where you would get a surround that matches your car and the unit.

anyway, IMO at that price I would give it a miss (questionable quality for me) or buy 3 - to have some spare.

You would also need a wiring adapter with the unit you mentioned.
The really cheap one you linked to is underpowered and would need adapters to fit whereas the one I showed is 3x the price but has a decent spec so will at least be useable, fit without a bezel and come supplied with all the cables to be plug and play.
These units need 4gb ram 32gb storage and an 8 core cpu ideally.

I can't see any technical specs. and is it running Android?
The rest are pretty standard across all these Android units tbh.
I think you can get better for the price IMO.

Yes, better power supply lead for the dash cam, ferrite beads added to the power leads and separation between the power leads for the dash cam and RF leads from the DAB
