    Hi, having just purchase an mbz which I pick up this week I was wondering if there was an alternative to the default Comand unit that comes installed. Happy with the screen size etc but having previously had a touch-screen unit that displayed album cover art etc from iPhone just thought I would as the question.

    Thank you Mark, Yes your probably correct but just loved the car so had to have it only just thought about the Comand interface to be honest.

    Mic/Matt, thanks, I will take a look through, I am probably the least switched on person when it comes to cars and people will probably roll their eyes, its just that the Comand system looks a little drab (need more colours ha ha).

    Well there isnt space for a double din unit in the dash. the Comand Online system with the media interface you car has can pretty much do everything needed anyway inc album art.

    npuk, thanks, I guess maybe I need to study the manual but you say I can see the album art on the unit!! do I need to purchase anything additional to make this happen?

    I think the OP's car is much newer than mine so he should not have the same issues.....in terms of Comand units mine was out of the arc and pretty much not upgradable.
