    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick question:

    I *think* I remember that facelifted 208/210 model cars that are fitted with COMAND have the option to have the navi directions displayed in the instrument cluster (I presume direction arrows etc)

    Was this ever an option with the Audio 30 APS type navigation - ie can it output navigational data to the cluster, or only on the COMAND system?

    Also, what would be involved in retrofitting a phone kit to this model (quite a lot I imagine...)

    Is an original MB phone kit still the best option these days in order to use the M/F steering wheel etc or are there other good options instead? It would need to be bluetooth compatible really.

    Many thanks,

    Will

    Comand from the factory or a reputable retrofitter will have the instructions displayed in the instrument cluster.

    I believe this is the same for Audio 30 APS.

    Some say that the Parrot kit can operate the steering wheel controls but i've not tested it. To have steering wheel controls and instrument cluster display with phone will require the D2B retrofit kit. This will give you UHI to which you can attached pretty much any Mercedes cradle, fixed or bluetooth plus the MBU-2000 viseeo cradle.

    Cheers Alfie, I knew you'd probably know! :) Anyone else with Audio 30 APS confirm for sure about the navi info in the cluster?

    Thanks,

    Will
