In addition to keeping you on schedule, the ability to reroute around traffic delays helps you avoid wastefully idling in a traffic jam.
You can also reduce fuel costs by taking advantage of eco-friendly routes that offer a more efficient means of reaching your destination.* But with the road network constantly evolving, the most efficient routes are subject to regular changes.
I'm wondering if updating the nav dvd will change the layout of the map screen at all, or just take the existing display and add new roads and points of interest.
I was in a newer model benz recently and the map display was much quicker and nicer looking and I'm wondering if this is possible in the older model I have by simply updating the disc.
Dear Mercedes-Benz owners, please note that the Mercedes-Benz navigation systems require a step by step map update each year, before using the latest map disc.
This is the Mercedes-Benz factory requirements, which have no exclusions on any models.
So instead of just updating them some (Mercedes hates when people want to do this) - go spend another 70 grand on a new stereo basically. It is the reason our company is always on the uphill battle with certain dealerships, as they hold the hard line on upgrades.
Many many many are falling into our way of thinking now, as a new dealership is signing up with our company at least once a week.
Until recently, I was using the 2008 Navigation DVD without issues.
I'm not clear on whether the map itself is 0 and you have to pay additional labor costs to update or if it is 0 inclusive of labor.
Can someone who has done a map update in the US chime in? I'm not clear on whether the map itself is 0 and you have to pay additional labor costs to update or if it is 0 inclusive of labor.
Most of the time it seems it is unusable and was a complete waste of money. Before, it was showing my position as "off road" when I was attempting to navigate (even as I was driving along a road).
Was there some software update that I missed or something else I needed to do? Also, some POI locations would not get the navigation instructions as it would just return to the previous screen.
