Your car is from built year 2011-2014?
Probably you have NTG 4.5 or NTG 4.7 and can use the speed camera database. Entering the hidden menu by press and hold down the keys RED PHONE BUTTON and # and 1. Open the menu "Engineering Mode > 3. HU information > 3.1 Navi core information > FL Ver." to indicate the NTG version.
Your car is built in year 2015 or later?
Certainly you have a NTG 5.x model. But we can't find out which model it is. Please ask your Mercedes dealer. He is able to detect by VIN the device identification (NTG 5.0, NTG 5.1, NTG 5.2 or NTG 5.5).
Contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and name your vehicle, built year, device and the ID number of one speed camera close to you. Find the ID number in our Speed Camera Map. We will send you a sample file.
No. SD-card and the USB-stick have to remain inserted while driving.
You can only load approximately 30.000 Points of Interest (POIs) into the unit. Please take care about that fact. Because Europe covers more than 64,000 speed camera locations. Our statistics helps you.
In Mercedes devices, there is no separate menu for adjusting the alert volume. Instead, you can adjust the volume using the volume buttons while the device is playing the warning tone. It functions similarly to adjusting the volume during a phone call, where the volume can only be changed during the call.
Unfortunately no. Comand online devices are unable to import custom icons. The Mercedes software is always using default icons.
A customer reports from his 2017 Mercedes C200. His Mercedes dealership downloaded the latest device software. After that the device refused to display the speed camera database. The Comand system did not access the SD card loaded with the database.
The problem with the speed camera database has been rectified.
After re-formatting and re-naming the SD card, loading it with other .gpx databases (including a “current position” POI) as well as the SCDB version, the system finally sprang into life. Then he deleted all the data under Personal POIs except the SCDB database and so far the system works as it should.
Please check these points:
1) Which countries did you load? Loaded Europe or less? (note: file for Europe is too big)
2) Did you reformat the SD card before using?
3) Did you create a folder PersonalPOI on the SD card? (no space after Personal)
4) Did you copy speedcam files into the folder PersonalPOI? (without making any subfolders)
5) Did you try various SD cards?
There are different statements about this. For some customers - especially with newer devices - it works when another folder with music files is stored on the USB stick. However other customers report that it doesn't work. It is best to try it out for yourself. If in doubt, always use a USB stick that only contains the speed camera data (no music files).
Customers report that they have used a USB stick containing 1 further folder with MP3 files without this being a problem. "This way, the speed camera data is automatically activated when the vehicle is started." However, if you put a second USB stick in the other USB drive, you have to reactivate the display and sound of the warnings every time you start the vehicle and also when you stop playing music (if speed camera and music files are on separate USB sticks). The two USB ports were USB C, located in the storage space under the armrest of a 2021 GLC.
The capacity of the USB flash drive (for MBUX) or the SD card (for Comand Online) is negligible, as the data occupies only a few megabytes in size. However, it is of greater significance to experiment with various USB flash drives or SD cards to identify the one that is compatible with the navigation device.
