Hi

I see loads of these up on ebay nowadays, are these new units completely self contained, in the same way that an Audio 20 is?

If so are they basically plug and play swap outs for the Audio 20 or do they require the GW and DVD units fitted in the boot?

Cheers

Michael

They are plug and play for the APS30 but you would need an antenna for the GPS,, I might have some retro fit instructions somewhere

Thanks Television

So for my E-Class with the Audio 20, this would be a no go?

Should still be plug and play.

As per Malcolm, you'll need a gps aerial, and also a loom adaptor.

There is a wiring set available at www.comand.co.uk

I thought command and APS30 needed an AGW? Audio 20 doesn't so I didn't think it was a straight swap as you (and I) don't have the agw. Early Audio 20s with a cassette player have an AGW but for some reason they dropped it for the cd audio 20s.

Not my specialist subject by any means, but I asked the question at MBGURU recently and Richard Almedia replied that basically that if you have the Audio 20 unit, and want to put in the (older) DVD based unit, it is as you suggest a camping holiday with new looms etc..

The newer HDD NTG2.5 is (almost) plug and play.

There endeth my knowledge on the matter :shock:

Thanks guys, there are a few up on ebay that come with the GPS antenna, so all I would need is the wiring loom and for the star update to be done.

Does this sound right? if so I could be going for an early christmas pressie!

So, do we know for definite if the new HD based command has an integral amp and would swap with a CD based Audio 20 (plus gps ariel obviously)?
If it does, I might be tempted myself!
