Hi all.

bit tongue in cheek... but can any learned souls tell me if there is any way to tell what version maps are installed and running in the Comand, without actually ejecting and checking the DVD? :D
can one check the version through the command menu etc?
Apparently it is running APS DVD Europe 2011/2012 (V12.0) for E280 CDI (W211 facelift)... but I can't see this info showing up anywhere on the command screen...?...

thanks in advance!

i went with him to close the deal; seemed a nice car... we never thought to try the nav box...
the guy he bought it from apparently sounded surprised and said it had the latest maps in so he knew the eject worked...
maybe my cus is doing something silly... not pressing the right button etc...

Try reading it again.

i tried in my car and got into the menus... did come across some techie stuff- not sure what refers to the map DVD version... i have the older maps; might wait till i see him and then compare our read outs to see if there's anything that indicates a higher maps version for him...
