Hi
We have the C02 Package as shown below from our specs. Yet we have no module in the glove box and NAV does not work. After some research I was told NAV is shown and should work yet, my dealer is trying to sell us the $600+ module that plugs in glove box? Please advise if any of you have same C02 Package and your NAV works? Also and FYI you may notice in my AVITAR our MB has running boards, chrome grill kit, chrome door handles and mirrors also chrome on rear lift gate. We bought for $33K after much degotiating because it is a 2016 left over. If you degotiate patiently in days not hours they will come down greatly of sticker. The running boards and chrome extras were done at a custom shop here we found out for almost $1,000. We appreciate your advice on this Becker Map Pilot NAV and appreciate any other suggestions to us newbies.
Rob

The dealer I bought mine from forgot to plug the nav unit into the glove box. A quick trip back to dealer fixed that. As far as the unit itself. I will refrain comment, as I have never had anything to compare it to.

Thanks all for input. I assume it was just "forgotten" They have said they would have me the unit tomorrow after these replies. You all just saved us $600+
Thanks, Rob:wink:

Thank you, We feel as if it was not truly "Forgotten" but are happy to have it hopefully

My guess is that somewhere somehow that module walked while it was sitting on their lot. That type of **** happens, especially in America. (e.g. Some jerk test drive it without a dealer rep and palmed the box)

What is inexcusable is their attempt to claim that you had to buy the module. My dealer would have at least checked my cars specs before giving me an answer, and would never have charged me for it.

My Metris didn't have the Becker Map Pilot plug in at delivery. "They didn't know where it was". My salesman ordered me one from parts and I picked it up aweek later.

FYI, its the same plug in as my MB C250 Sport sedan. I suspect the Becker Map Pilot may have been removed from my Metris and given to someone who didn't pay for it in their car.

The map pilot comes separate in its own box and is mixed in with the title, manual, etc. My dealership had to find mine as well. Took me a day or two to get the manual and Becker crap pilot. (Darn autocorrect!)

Thanks everyone
I went by the dealer today and they had it for us. Plugged it in and.................realized why all the negative reviews,
1st It will get us home or to our destination in need
2nd it IS rudimentary as much as everyone says.

I am a half glass full guy VS half glass empty, so we're happy to have it in a pinch, BUT we will use our SP's (Smart Phones) for directions and select music

Thanks for all the input, we're enjoying the MBM Forum and have learned A LOT!

We appreciate you all and hope to contribute knowledge as well

we enjoy the common interest of us all

Yeah, at CES I saw the new Huawei Mate 9 (not Pro version with the same 5.5" as my iPhone 7 Plus) at 5.9" screen.

The larger screen the better for my aging eyes. I hope iPhone will make that size or bigger.

What is wrong with Becker Map Pilot Navigation? I think it works well I input the address and I get to where I have to go when I use it. What is it people don't like about it.

I have to agree so far. Its worked the half a dozen times i tried it too. I wish she wouldn't talk as much, but other than that the unit has worked as designed.

It's traffic and reroute sucks, it's data entry is cumbersome, and I can't get it to actuAlly tell me to observe my speeds when I want it to. It's not awful... It's just inferior to a decent $150 Garmin for 4 times the price.
