    I have a wide screen comand on my 2003 CL500

    Any idea how I get the distance to destination to display at the bottom of the map please?

    I used to get it on a 2006 E class but I can't find any reference to it in the book

    Thanks

    Assuming the car is one with the navigation DVD in the boot (i.e built late 2003) a firmware upgrade of the COMAND *may* help.

    The facility was added to the E class for Model Year 07 (late 2006 build) and can be added to older cars by doing the firmware update.

    I can't guarantee it will add the facility because I don't know if the later CLs actually had it.

    Firmware upgrade can be done by dealer, or you can buy the disk and do it yourself.

    Comand Online Ltd :: Mercedes SatNav/COMAND :: Service Update Disks :: Firmware update for S/CL/SL with DVD based COMAND

    I know that firmware update (and the latest map) on a SL gave additional features in the satnav such as 'birds eye view', again I dont know if that will do it to a CL though.
