Hi Everyone,

Please be easy on me as I'm a new bee. Here is the help I need for. About a week ago I purchase my self a 2006 Mercedes C200 CDI sport edition :), When i first see the car I have noticed the phone dial buttons but did not ask question as assumed there is a phone option build in but after purchase the car and reading on google I now understand this is not the case. Inside arm rest console I do NOT have UHI connection or any other type connector. I realy like my phone to work with the car as I'm spending so much time in the car. Questions are
1- How can I find out if the car pre wired for phone (Dont really know what this mean by pre wired)
2- What do I need in order to make my phone work with this car
3- While I was serching people mantioned stereo system type like I20 I30 how do i know what type stereo system installed in my car.
4- Also i'm seen W203 - W204 what this numbers mean and again how do I know what is my car?

Sorry if I been stupid but this is my second Mercedes and first one was 16 years ago and only had it for a month before some one crushed into it.

Thank you in advance for your helps.

1. You would have the UHI connector if it was pre-wired.

2. You can install mercedes phone pre-wire so you have the UHI connector. You would then also need to purchase a bluetooth adapter / cradle.

Or you could install an aftermarket kit that works like the factory pre-wire e.g. mCar or Fiscon Pro. These wont require a bluetooth adapter / cradle.

Both the above options can be found on: Comand Online Ltd :: Mercedes Phone/Bluetooth :: Phone System Retrofit Kits

Alternatively you could upgrade the headunit to the MY09> NTG2.5 based unit which have full bluetooth built in bluetooth so no pre-wire or cradle needed. Units can be found for sale on ebay.

Or install an aftermarket phone kit like Parrot or Bury.

3. Options on a 2006 C Class would be: single cd which is Audio 20, b&w turn by turn direction navigation which is Audio 50 and full colour navigation which is Comand NTG2.

Been covered on here plenty of times, use the search.

above is great information updating head unit sound like is the best and easy is option. I'm a pc and network technician with lot hardware installation experiance do you think changing head unit can be done by myself or require professional to do.
