Hello!

I’ve recently purchased a 2009 E350, with sat nav, the only issue is that the maps are out of date! What is the best route to take with regards updating? There seem to be numerous sites called “latestsatnav.co.uk” and “satnavstore.com” but are they trustworthy?

Kind regards

Stuart

Stuart, do not touch anything other than genuine MB DVD's as, although some folk have used the copied DVD's successfully many others have bricked their Comand using them - and expensive mistake! You can read about this on www.comand.co.uk or www.mercedesupgrades.(com or co.uk, not sure which).

With NTG4 you have 2 options. First is buy the latest update either from comandonline.co.uk or MB - that's the expensive option, although occasionally MB do a special deal for £99. Second is to buy a "previously owned" set from eBay or the forums, they're occasionally offered on here and MBOA. Be careful that you get a set with a part number starting A212 not A204 - the C class W/S204 Comand is also NTG4, but the DVD's are different. A set that is a year or 2 old is much cheaper, and thankfully NTG4 DVD's are re-useable - MB got cute when they upgraded to NTG4.5 (facelift W204, not sure about E class though) so you need a PIN from their mainframe, specific to your car's VIN, as well as the DVD's.

For all things MB ICE/phone/satnav etc., your first port of call should always be Alfie/Richard at comand.co.uk, who are sponsors of both this forum and MBOA and know more about MB's systems than m0ost MB main dealers!

Chris,

Wow, now that’s a reply! Thankyou so much that is extremely helpful!!! I tried to wangle a free update with MB Preston when I took it in for a firmware update (so the Bluetooth audio connected correctly) but they wouldn’t take me on!
I will look into these options ASAP!
