Here are pictures updated new version of Comand NTG 4.5. After updating Comand it became NTG4.7. Everything is working fine. Even you can change settings to get performance media screen shows you accelaration etc. Dashboard is still papyrus theme (yellow) but Comand is new Silver theme (black). Thanks to Gudikcik we used Vediamo 5.02 for updating operation.

Sorry to revive this thread.
Dude can you elaborate the audio part ?
I have a multimedia interface that works great with my NTG4.5 but no audio source. I understand you have to use the AUX audio socket but in my car it is located in the center armrest so not easily reachable as if it was in my glovebox...

Any directions on the wire to tap would be really helpfull. Many thanks.

Yes, there is a solution.. Here is which wire you need to connect, i captured screen from WIS for you.



As you see that, you have to use B socket (it is in big fakra socket behind of Comand, look at here https://mbworld.org/forums/5967733-post73.html) to connect AUX. You can find which pin is by the color.

PIN 6 is Aux Left (BK = Black)
PIN 11 is ground (BN = Brown)
PIN 12 is Aux Right (YE = Yellow)

That's all you need

Was trying something similar on my car. I have 2010 NTG4 with MM package with the media interface cable in the glove box and backup camera. I was reading in some threads that the 3.5 can also do video input but some reports it does not. Obviously by disabling back up camera so the Video Aux becomes enabled on the command. This thread just confirmed that as well. After trying it, I've also confirmed it does not work. This is my set up:

interface cable --> 3.5mm to rca cable --> rca to hdmi adapter --> hdmi to miracast device --> android device.

But since the 3.5 input on the MM interface cable doesn't support video input I might have to scrap the idea or look for another alternative.

But I assume for 2012 with MM it would work as long as you install the fakra for video aux input and pin out the audio.

Can you please tell me which fakra socket in comand NTG4.5 I should connect with the AUX audio input cable?

I use multimedia interface now, so if I can connect AUX audio input cable to the comand directly, which means I don't need use multimedia interface anymore, right?

It is block B of the large connector, see attached JPEG, the block is circled in green. There was no wires there on my car.

My NTG4.5 2012 accepts aux audio on pins 4, 5, 10 and 11.
pin 4 aux left channel
pin 5 aux shield
pin 10 aux right channel
pin 11 aux ground
Note, this is where my copy of WIS shows them.

If you buy a "TV Free" kit which does not require cutting and splicing wires, then it comes with all the wire and pins for each connection on this large connector.

12V

Hey mate,

Can I ask where you took the 12v from for the 12V-5V3A adapter?
Is there any easy way to route the cables from the glove compartment and to the Comand unit?
You need both audio and video cables going back there. But could you say take the 12v from the cigarette lighter outlet in the glove compartment?

Cheers.

Another question
I have NTG4, not 4.5
Do you know if this has 2 video in also. I'm using 1 video in for the rear cam, so do I have another for AUX in also?

Project Android TV in car with inspiration from AstronBnX (reha)

So this thread inspired me to start a similar project on my car.
At the moment the car is at the workshop to get my panoramic sunroof replaced. It got stuck one warm summer day and wouldn't close again. Also the Comand unit stopped working. Just flashed the star logo and restarted in loop. So 2 problems to get fixed. Turns out the car is 8 month out of warranty
The dealer called me with price for the replacement for sunroof. It was 16.000 €
However we filed an application for MB to get this fixed under warranty and luckily they agreed. So both the sunroof and Comand unit is currently being replaced free of charge
The car has now been at the dealership for 10 days and I should get it back any day now.

Meanwhile I've been shopping on the internet to get most of the stuff I need.
So far I've got this:


Rikomagic MK802IIIs Android TV


HDMI to AV converter. Bought from ebay.


RC12 Gyro keyboard with touchpad



RCA Jack female to Fakra "Z" female pigtail cable. Bought from ebay



10 port active USB hub bought from ebay


Testing the whole setup at home first.

The setup works like a charm so far. Everything is powered through 1 USB port because of the active USB hub. So with this solution I don't have to find a 12v source and use some converter. I can use the 12V cigarette outlet in the glove box compartment to power the USB hub with USB cable.
Now Android TV & HDMI converter is powered and I have plenty of USB inputs for the Android TV So far my cigarette USB adapter only provides 1A, but this is enough for what I'm using so far.

Now I just need my car back, so I can get started with assembly.

How did you install in Glove compartment?

I am trying to recreate your installation in my W212 E-Class 2012, with a Raspberry Pi running RASPBMC instead of an android PC. But i cannot figure out how you got the cable from behind the COMAND unit (the Video AUX) in to the glove compartment.? I have been searching the forum and the internet in general, but haven't been able to find some useful results??

Does anybody here know how to do this?
Any help will be appreciated

You can directly connect it to Comand head unit. Raspberry already have AV output, you don't need to any video/audio converter. Please have look at my previous posts to understand cables and connection pinout.

Thanks for your help. But my problem wasn't how to connect it to the Comand unit, but rather how to route the wire for AV in to the glove compartment. I have gotten my video signal working perfectly, but would just like to tidy up the installation by placing cables etc. in the glove box.

Here is the link for Ezcast module i used. Of course there is HDMI 2 AV converter, you can find my previous posts how you are going to connect it to Comand.

This is awesome! Would anyone be so kind to post the 3 connector pin out of the ngt4.5 comand? Am trying to ensure I am not messing wrongly with the leads when adding aftermarket multimedia module to it.

See if this matches what you have, there is more then one pin out, because there are different options.

yes jerryt, that's what I need, thanks so much!

would you be kind enough to post also the standard ntg 4 audio 20 connector pinout too for comparison and reference as well? it seems that the pinout posted by AstronBnx under post 78 is that of ntg 4 or standard audio 20(?), and not ntg 4.5 command (I might be mistaken...)
