    Hi everyone,
    I just bought a second hand mercedes c220 2018 reg68.
    I am trying to find a navigator SD card to purchase. I am having difficulties finding one for my model.
    Could you please help? or send a link?
    Does it have to be an official mercedes sd card?
    Any tips?

    Thank you very much for your help,
    Robert

    Ask comandonline @Alfie

    I thought you were supposed to get the first 3 years free

    Did it have navigation when purchased new by previous owner?
    If not then you need to find out if it is navigation ready and if so then it will be about £400 for the first card from Mercedes.
    If it was activated and the card has been lost then you can buy cheap update cards from E**y that will work but only have navigation or you can buy from your Mercedes dealer with 3 years live traffic for £99.

    Thank you very much Mike,
    Is there any way I can check if my car is navigation ready without going to the dealership?
    Thanks again

    You could try a vin decoder or phone Mercedes customer service.

    Thanks guys!
    My cars is navigation ready so I got a cheap card of E**y as suggested.
    A few more questions, if you guys don't mind:
    Are there any drawbacks using a card not bought from a Mercedes dealership? Is it safe to use a card bought on Ebay? Does it affect warranty? Does it have less features?
    Thanks everyone!

    It is safe to use, the only thing missing would be the live traffic.
    Download the Mercedes updater if you have a Windows computer as there could be updates available that are free for the first 60 days of using the card.
    Once inserted in to the car it will ask for conformation that it is the car you intended as it is then locked to that car and not transferable.

    I have bought a card on ebay.

    Without the card, the navigation screen says: "Please install compatible navigation software from SD card or consult your Mercedes-Benz dealer for system software updates. Version 16/26.00".
    When I insert the card into the slot, the screen still says: "Please install compatible navigation software from SD card or consult your Mercedes-Benz dealer for system software updates. Version 16/26.00". No reaction.

    Has anyone had the same issue? How do I solve it? Is there a specific procedure I need to follow to get the card installed?

    Thanks

    You need to make sure you have the right card.
    They changed the software in August 2017 and they are not compatible with the other system.
    Check your build date, mine was registered in July2017 but was built in Nov 2016.

    I bought a SLC250d 2016 six months ago, with a MB sat nav but no SD card. They couldn't fined the SD card at the time but posted it to me a couple of days later. It was the wrong one registered to another car, so they then sent me a new unregistered SD card which worked. Just wondering how original your eBay SD card is?

    The ebay seller is very nice, he realised it was the incorrect card and is sending me another one.

    He's just asking me for the card part number, which I have no idea how to find. If, again, someone could point me in the right direction? Mercedes C220 AMG 2018 REG68, it has a widescreen and no touchpad.

    I really really appreciate you guys helping me!!! thank you!
