Hey well, as some may know collected my CLS55 AMG yesterday...

Few Niggles...one is no gps signal....says "off map" and shows me in the SEA somewhere...
Ordered and new GPS aireal complete...
Anyway gone in the glove box and there are two IDENTICLE wires...comming out of a hole as you look in top right...almost looks like a wire cut in half?:mad:

Been told (as 1st thought was maybe feed to gps aireal) its prob an IPAD connection??
So my thoughts are the "hole" is from the "ports" and the cover has been removed and wires cut....more worried about cut wires being loose and causing further damage....
Any help and or PHOTOS as your glove box inside may help...
Once I'm up and about I'll take photos of mine....

Not the best start to my new ownership...lol

Those wires do not look to be a Mercedes fitment as standard so I doubt anyone can help.

Any advice would be guesswork.

Personally I would tape them up and not worry unless something is not working.

Good luck with your car.

Ok, NTG1 nav unit....I'm confused....does the Antenna plug into the head unit or the DVD drive in the boot???
I seen images showing another connection in a plastic clamp and this does seem to go to the blue plug on back of the DVD drive...however...there is also one on the other side?? So confused.....??? I do not want to have to pull the head unit out unless I have to..
All back seats out, parcel shelf and all inside covers out the boot.....so not much room left in garage/car to start pulling the head unit out.

Google images are just more confusing....seems NG1 has a blue plug on the back and is labeled Sat Nav but looks same as the plug on back of DVD unit in boot????

HELP PLEASE......

Thanks all....

I believe it's the blue connector in the boot. The pic you have looks like a NTG2.5 unit where the connections are made to the head unit

The influx of replies is overwhelming...
Tbh, there will be many people who do not know the answer to this, so how can they reply? A sarcastic tone isn't going to help your plight either. Not intended as a dig, just friendly advice.
