    Mercedes S-Class (1999) W220 Comand & Sat Nav Help Please....

    Hello people... Right, so i've just bought an S Class Mercedes W220 and am going through the stage of updating the Comand and Sat Nav in the car... I've tried to do my research before posting this but just gave up... When it comes to tomtom's i'm a master but updating Mercs is totally new to me... First of all the Car has the Square Comand Screen with the Telephone Keypad on the right hand side of the screen... I have take out the Sat-Nav CD or DVD from the Slot and from what i can see it says: Tele Atlas, 1999-I, G5, Great Britain, TravelPilot, Blaupunkt, ETAK Quality Maps... I have tried using the Sat-Nav and obviously its pretty outdated in terms of the coverage and does not even have Postcode support... Don't know if this helps but when the car switches the Mercedes-Benz Logo comes on at the start...

    I don't really know how this works, in terms of what needs doing first, Upgrade Comand or just to download a new UK Map version and use that... Any Guidance, Instructions, Links to maps etc would be greatly appreciated...

    Kind Regards,

    Mo

    Also just another quick thing... Doing some research but all I seem to find are some keywords like APS, NTG or DX or No DX but don't really know what they mean... I also believe from what I can see that the Map Disc in my car that is mentioned in my post above is I think a CD (Compact Disc) so I don't think its a DVD... Hope this Helps, thanks...

    Since you are so smart with TomTom, one would expect you to be able to read the contents of you current disc!
    In the file info.txt you should find all the information you need to identify your unit

    Your unit is called a Comand C which makes use of the so called TravelPilot-C or Non DX cd's
    You will notice that this system was made obsolete in 1999 and the final map cd's wre published in 2006/2007

    Thanks for the reply... I believe the sat-nav may be a DX based system if thats the correct way of putting it as when it switches on it has a DX symbol and also I took out the Sat-Nav Disc and it said something like insert your Satnav DX Disc... Hope this helps... Mo

    Hard to believe it is the original unit
    However if you noticed the DX invitation, use this post
