    Hi all,

    I am trying to source a Lease C-Class, and the price including Becker Navigation seems to be quite high. Rather than add the cost onto the Lease, I would like to try to get hold of one separately.

    Is the Becker available as a purchase either from a Mercedes Dealer, or even eBay or the like?

    Does it require anything to be modified, or is it really just a plug and go type affair?

    Thanks in advance.

    At the risk of digressing...
    My 211 has command with sat nav; it's better than a poke in the eye... but still a lil silly when compared with the likes of Tom Tom.
    My wife's 210 doesn't have sat nav.
    We have tom-tom on our iPhones, and this is absolutely smashing. Full postcode, exact house numbers, and what's really awesome; google search built right in.
    On hindsight; I know which one we prefer ;-)

    used to have a Tom Tom but the Beker is as good and the integration seals it for me ( also fullpostcodes, house numbers and better POI's)

    Only UK cars do. The OP is not in the UK according to his profile, so he probably needs to order the pre-wire option.

    (and in fact, there have been a few mess-up UK cars recently that came without the pre-wire, and retrofitting the pre-wire is a bit of a pig)

    Cheers

    From his other thread he says he is due to be back in the UK in September and is looking to lease a car here for 2 years.

    Mercedes have an offer on at the moment where you get it for free when you buy a diesel, thus why it's probably included in lease. My dad has just bought petrol and he bought one from Germany for 250.

    I have sent off the request for my car. I have decided to go for:-

    C250 CDi Sport Auto Edition 125

    This comes with Command online and so makes the Becker question moot.

    I am in China at the moment, so it will be nice to get back to the UK and drive myself around. It is less than 7 weeks until my flight now. But, I'm not counting...
