    I have been assured, by Mercedes Benz of Harrogate, that the TMC enabled DVDs for COMAND satnav will be out early in the new year. they have this info direct from mercedes. so it is only 18months late then!

    I have just taken delivery a 55reg SLK and it was equipped with the same version (4.1) of the DVD the older SLK (2004model 54reg)was. I emailed Mercedes via the contacts page on www.mercedes-benz.co.uk and asked why i received the latest model car and yet only got the old version on the DVD. they said that 4.1 is the latest version but I expected the upgraded version.

    anyhow they are sending me it, when it comes, at no charge. I thought it may be of help to any potential, or recent buyers who were unaware of this issue.

    I havent looked thru the forum recently, so if this is a duplicate of other threads in here, my appologies for taking up space.

    Erm,

    I have a letter direct from the office of the MD of Mercedes UK stating its going to be out at the end of this month (ie, September) or early October.

    I also know its passed final testing, and is being packaged now.

    Ever get the feeling we are being told porkies ?

    I'm trying to hold taking my (almost) year old W203 in for service, hoping that the TMC disk will be available when I do. I'm *assuming* they'll change the disk anyway as it's got the dodgy roundabout exit number issue.

    possibly. My info was from a phone call today (28/09/2005) and it was the result of Mercedes emailing the retailer yesterday and me contacting them today. the service department rang mercedes than rang me. so thats as up-to-date as i can be. whether its as up to date as they can be you never know.

    i did mention that mercedes Mag had said Autumn and early next eyar isnt Autumn. The guy couldn't offer any help other than tell me what he had been told.

    looks positive tho. I do get the feeling, from this isue, that MB are trying hard with customer service tho. I have no complaints as they have addressed my issue satisfactorily.

    Just a reminder for those with a CD driven Command that you can get TMC with the Michelin nav CD, you can get it on their website, £179 I believe.

    A conversation I had with DCUK last week they said they are working on their own version and doubt the existing TMC units will be compatible? Who knows?

    No, sorry only the factory price, but I would imagine the same price as the old one.

    Oh and stock should be available if not in the UK in Germany (so might mean a wait) but it was going down fast.

    According to MB Norway, that number (B67823395 ) is for the 4.1 vers. Could you double check?

    Good morning Oslo,
    Long time no speak! It's really nice to hear from you again and as you can see, a number of us are waiting for our TMC to be activated.

    I wrote to Mercedes-Benz UK several months ago and was informed they had finally purchased a licence and intended to issue an upgrade at the end of summer 2005. It is now getting very close to 'TMC' day, so my fingers are crossed.

    Does Norway already have this option and if so what is your opinion of it?

    Regards,
    John

    An overcast, cool morning in Torquay

    Hi there, John

    Here is the correct number for the 5.0 version: B6 782 34 89

    Check it up in UK, I'm almost certain that the TMC for UK is in this version

    Yes, we have the TMC as well, but we are in the same situation as you, MB has not coded it yet. Hope this one is coded for Norway.

    Take care

    Gunnar
