    Comand NTG1 GPS issue - 2006 CLS 219

    Sorry forgot to write that I had the new antenna on the car's bootlid and later on the roof, for about an hour twice while I was driving. Also in previous/earliers tries I had the new antenna on the bootlid for days (when returning from Europe).

    Comand NTG1 GPS issue - 2006 CLS 219

    Thank you @Alfie for your prompt reply. Apologies, I was meant to write the navi drive at the boot and not the actual HU in the dash. Maybe the navi drive, for a reason that I cannot understand, doesn't power the Fakra plug. I tried to measure the volts but was reading 0v and not the expected...

    Comand NTG1 GPS issue - 2006 CLS 219

    Thanks @Alfie I have tried with the power cable but no luck. This time I left the power off for more than an hour. Nothing. Location is still at north of France (as it was always, previously attached photo was loaned from the initial post of this thread). I changed my display from ETA to...

    Comand NTG1 GPS issue - 2006 CLS 219

    Another thing to note is that my navi does Not display/include the satellite info as per the attached screenshot that Steve shared with us in his initial message (thanks for sharing it so I can use it too as reference)

    Comand NTG1 GPS issue - 2006 CLS 219

    I had another try with the power cable (unplugging it etc) but no luck. I placed the antenna on the bootlid too. Just to confirm that the new antenna I was using its exactly the same with the one that you are using @Steve260E I ordered another antenna slightly more expensive, I had another go...

    Comand NTG1 GPS issue - 2006 CLS 219

    Thank you @Steve260E for your prompt reply. Funny thing that I bought exactly the same one back in the summer (from the same shop) and never fixed my problem. I will try with the power cable this time and maybe reorder it (in case I received a faulty new one)

    Comand NTG1 GPS issue - 2006 CLS 219

    Wow, I have exactly the same problem the last months. With the same model car (2006 cls c219). Problem started all of a sudden after a battery swap (with genuine merc one at a merc specialist). From summer the ntg1 just cannot find correct location, based outside north London and maps showing...

    W219 wheel alignment

    Hi, I own the car a week now and I realized from the beginning that I need to keep steering wheel turned on the right to keep it in straight line. Apparently car needs adjustment in track rods. I am considering to perform a complete alignment to check the camber values too. Since car has...

    KeyFob Issue working kind of...wierd

    I believe lesson learned. with jumper cables the car unlocked using the key fob. After two minutes engine cranked (with an effort and in parallel lcd screen lost its illumination for half second). Battery was dead and caused all this mess (again very strange that the blade keys did not open the...

    KeyFob Issue working kind of...wierd

    Small update from yesterday's and today's tries: as said, yesterday I went to driver's door and tried to open via IR with no results. Today, the blade steel key does not unlock the door (I tried both of them). Eventually I decided to open the boot using the blade key and I checked fuse no8...

    Hello - new to MBclub and Merc world

    Few hours ago I went to check this w219 (apologies for mentioning earlier c219) Advertising was mentioning 1 previous owner but vehicle had 6 previous owners. I found a painted rear body part and few scratches all around. I believe rear suspension was in the lowest possible position before...

    A quick hello

    Hi, I am focusing on the cls500 V8. I believe that the early cars 2004-5-6 have the m113 engine which is more reliable when compared to the early m273 models 2006-7. thanks.

    Hello - new to MBclub and Merc world

    A quick hello

    Hi Jasmart, I am in the market for a C219 (although a C218 is much nicer but budget is restricted). Since you have had it, what should I look and check before buying? Thanks in advance.

    Hello - new to MBclub and Merc world

    Thanks GeeJay, my only concern is that a w212 might feel too big for me too as you are mentioning in your post (since I will move from a 3er to a bigger segment and a larger car). The main reason for a W205 would be its agility and mostly this 1 less second that it needs during acceleration...

    Hello - new to MBclub and Merc world

    Yugguy thats true, sometimes a heavier chassis might consume less or the same with a slightly bigger engine. I have already checked on honestjohn etc. and in there, users declare a difference of 5mpg between these two if I remember correctly. Where can I open a subject within the forum? under...
