    I've just bought a C class 320 estate 2001 with what I suppose must be an early Command centre with a SatNav. It didn't come with a CD for the satnav, and from what I've seen so far there are a plethora of CDs for this system. Can anyone advise which CD I need and what updates I may require?

    You'll probably find the answer on www.comandonline.co.uk - if you can't find it, email them, they're very helpful (and members/sponsors on here!).

    The disc you require is a DX disc for your C class

    Thanks for the responses, but can I also clarify a couple of points.

    Is the application software already loaded(firmware), and the geographical data on the disk OR do I need to load the application software as well to make it work?

    If the firmware is already loaded do I also need updates for this?

    I'm assuming the raw geographical data on a CD is separate from the application software.

    The DX disc is a CD you insert it in the slot and it will navigate only while the disc is in the head unit, so all the info is on the disc and not in the head unit.

    The best disc is from 2010 as it had more on it.

    That's what I feared, that it required the CD to be inserted at all times. Oh well I'll just have to make sure any audio CD I might possibly want to listen is in the loader magazine.
