    I will be wanting to fit a Parrot phone kit to a W211 E55 should I buy one. I believe that it has the Command audio system.

    How is the best way to do this?

    Thanks.

    Does that do Bluetooth music streaming? Or is there a way to get an iPod working?

    No, Viseeo is phone calls only. You may have an aux socket in the glove box which you can use to stream music from your phone using the steering wheel volume controls. Its not great but it works.

    Look on eBay for an Viseeo MBU-3000. When new they were £150 but no longer in production.

    Looks like I need an MB-4. This MBU 3000 is now for sale in the classifieds.

    Hmm I have a May 04 E55 and mine uses the MBU-3000.
    Yours must be one of the first changed to the UHI connector:wallbash:
