Mercedes Comand conversion (region)

Why a Comand conversion?

Cars from Japan and USA differ from European models. If you look at the different options in radio / navigation, there are a few points to consider

  • FM range is different. Comand Japan starts for instance at 76.0 and USA only knows "whole" frequencies
  • Navigation data. Each region has its own navigation maps and sometimes even different suppliers
  • Languages. Each region has its own collection of user languages
  • Absence of functions

In addition, certain options are not available or are available in some regions. Think of

  • DAB (Europe) versus SIRIUS (USA) (Comand USA)
  • Whether or not ETC (toll)
  • DVD region codes
  • Dashcam options yes / no (Russia versus ECE)

What can Mbnaviworld do for you?

We can make your vehicle “EU ready”. This means that you can convert your Comand navigation system to EU, adjust radio frequencies, load a map, etc., often while maintaining your own system.

Cost

Cost will be very competitive in relation to another used device.

Why have the conversion done at Mbnaviworld?

  • Retaining own device instead of replaced as offered elsewhere
  • Full conversion. Do not just load the languages etc etc. The unit is fully converted
  • Original navigation software
  • Last flash mode
  • The unit is (still) recognized by the diagnostic software and can be coded online, for example
  • Activation codes / anti-theft codes are retained and belong to the vehicle
  • Priced very well
