Depends on the comand that you purchased.
If its from a car that had similar configuration as yours then should be fine.
You will probably need to get it coded with Star, after that everything will work fine.
Best get it on a Star so evrything is done properly

There will be a retro kit for doing this including the antenna's it could be too new for me,,but with the first 6 VIN numbers I can check to see if i have the right info

getting it on STAR is a must and will be done,
audio 20 has
1) bluetooth connecion.
2) ipod reading and steering control( the ipod is via a muitpoint connection in the glove box, no a single point jack), which connects seamlessly with the ipod, eg podcasts , play lists etc....

the above items would be essnential on an APS comand
the APS is numbered A 164 820 22 79

and the car is a oct 2009 ML 350cdi...

i opted out of a comand as it was a £2500 option....
a retro fit HDD is about £1300 fitted
and APS £400 !!!!
and anetenna about £20

would i also need to obtain a seperate dvd/sat nav disc player for he APS to work or can i use the integral cd/disk player? thanks

Everything should work fine after STAR is done.
For navigation you need to use the DVD/CD slot on the unit itself, this will also play Music CD's.

Just make sure you get a navigation DVD with the comand.
