    Hi,

    I'm a newbie to this forum but was wondering if anybody had any advice regarding the below issue.

    I have recently purchased a 2006 (56) W209 CLK 320. The car comes with COMAND sat nav etc. However, it appears that when using the sat-nav, you have to know the postcode and street name. You do not seem able to be able to simply input the full postcode as a destination. Is this correct, or am I missing something?

    Also, the system does not seem to be able to pair with my iphone 5. Infact, I don't think my phone even sees the system.

    Would there be an update disk that may solve the above problems? Also, there doesn't appear to be a manual for the system. A manual could well shed some light on the above issues as well. I have looked around and don't think there are any downloadable PDF versions. Does anybody know how I would go about getting one?

    Thanks in advance for any help anybody can offer!

    2006 COMAND will only accept partial post codes (not sure now if it's just 4 or 5 characters) and will not connect via bluetooth to phones.
    You will have to check if the car is pre-wired for phone. Look inside the centre armrest for a triangular connector. You would then need to fit a bluetooth puck or cradle to connect to the phone.

    Check out this website for phone cradles etc..

    You can download a pdf COMAND manual from the link below, be aware it's from the US though. UK dealers are still able to source hardcopies if you are patient
