Hi all

I have a highly spec'd W169 which has the APS 50 command unit and media interface. However no matter what device I attach eg iPod or android, the unit won't recognise the device or the music. My MB dealer days it's to do with the sound format but I've had no problem in later model cars. Can anyone help please? It's a 2010 car by the way.

Thanks in advance

Neil

Sounds like you have the wrong media interface cable. There are three different types of MI ipod cable that will physically fit but only one of them will work.
