    Hi all,
    My car is a 2006, C220 cdi coupe. It has comand system in the centre console. With the DVD slot at top, and disc changer in glove box.
    The maps dvd I have (which works, but severely out of date) is
    " DVD Comand APS ver: 4.0"
    Part number:- A169 827 2059. B7823386.
    Please can anyone assist in how the hell do I update it?
    Through looking around on various sites, confusing info as to. I need a telematics update cd 09/29.
    And I am now at a complete loss as to what exactly is needed in order to update my nav system and maps.
    Regards
    Andy

    Best advice is to contact or even call Comand On Line

    They are essentially the gurus

    They are near Lightwater in Surrey if you're bearish.....

    u can make the last update disc from here

    http://service-parts.mercedes-benz.com/dcagportal/DCAGPortal/menu.action?pageId=4795&market=Europe

    and mapping can be hunted down, I suspect its a V19 that works (not the same as the e class with NTG1 comand APS - looks like its NTG2 DVD Comand Aps Europa v19 2017-2018, the last they supported)... its 2d only and rather nasty, from 2017 they shrunk the size on screen till its biggest is a bit small

    Interesting Botus that your second link does not show my supposedly NTG2.5 head unit that I think is A171 870 4794 and has small round buttons rather than the close spaced rectangular buttons shown in the link. It looks the same as https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mercedes...445859?hash=item4b62483263:g:lUAAAOSwYP9cqysk but I wonder if it could be Audio 20 like https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Audio-20...235602?hash=item2888b4b352:g:HlQAAOSwYBpd0bNO even though the VIN decoder shows 512 COMAND APS WITH DVD CHANGER
    Is this the explanation of me not being able to access the engineering menu using hangup-*-6 to find out what firmware is installed so I can update the maps!

    the way I clicked your links they were both round button radios

    this one is a 211 rather than a 171 NTG2.5 unit...

    engineering menus got harder to find after the were running later firmware... if u see time of arrival that was usually a sign it was on the latest

    That's something I've already noticed - no ETA in the SLK, whereas I have it in the C220. Both are 2008 cars (although the SLK is MY2009 facelift), and the supplying dealer MB North Wales serviced the car until 4/6/2014 but it looks like they did not update either the firmware or the maps!

    Thanks for all the info people. I have to admit that I am now more confused than I was before.
    Do I need a telematics CD update?
    And then a maps dvd update?
    Or just a map upgrade, phew, my head is spinning now.
    Regards
    Andy
