Janine said:I bought mine on ebay for less than half the cost from the dealers. Its only been a couple of weeks and I have yet to use it to actually find a route I dont know. I was really keen on not having something with trailing cables that keeps falling off the windscreen. I use my Tom Tom for my drive to and from work for traffic and although Becker has traffic, I dont think its anywhere near as good as the Tom Tom but I've not written it off just yet.

Its quick, full postcode input and the voice input mode has worked faultlessly for me.
Shame the screen is a bit small and the Map Pilot doesn't lower the volume of the radio/music enough when making announcements. Those are my only critisisms
Its a whole lot better than the awful factory fit system I paid £1500 for that came in my Audi!
If I had my time again though, I would be ordering it from Amazon and saving a couple of hundered quid. If you get it from MB, it will not come in the car, your dealer will simply slot the unit into the prewired connector in the glovebox. I hadn't realised just how staight forward this is. You have to remove it yourself to do the over the internet updates anyhow.
Thanks Millsy - I'll have a go in a bit and report back.Millsy said:Turns out you need to adjust the navigation volume. For it to mute the radio, the selector needs to be in the middle. To get to this, go to the navigation settings. Then, select Navigation Volume and center the scroller. If it's above or below the middle, the navigation commands will no longer drop the radio volume.
I tried to follow that instruction aswell but could not find any way to alter the volume like this to half way in the settings either. I think that instruction refers to a C Class and is not something we can set.cablecar69 said:Hi everyone,
I also have the problem of no fading during announcements.
I read above that you adjust nav volume half way. I've checked but can't find where this setting is just nav fade on or off.
