Hi all

Is there a good source for second hand Comand 2.0 (first gen). Might want to retrofit one into the CLK, but dont want a nicked one on ebay :)

Give the guys at Comand a call, they are probably best placed to know where to get one.

thanks Miffy, Good spot, but for a 203/209 with the wrong bezel shape.

Are you really sure its worth going down the route of a comand 2 ? 5 digit post code, known issues with the cd player failing. No TV, BT, Ipod or reverse camera.

I am replacing my unit soon, but the knobs are worn and it's hardly worth selling.

True, but kenwood/pioneer units that are actually good are around 500-700 pounds, which is too much. The comand unit, if they can be had at the right price, offer a lot of functionality with a low price, and integration with the dashboard etc,

When you replace it, do give me a shout :)

What limits the use of some in cars they were not made for is the angle that the giro is place when all built in up front

I thought there is an interchangeable clip on the side on the COMAND unit that sets the giro angle correctly for the car it's in.

I am pretty sure there are no removable parts on the side of my old comand 2

I thought the comand on the w208 and w210 and W163 all shared the same orientation and so the gyro position wasnt really relevant
