W204 central display

Hello,

I have S204 C220 CDI T Elegance BlueEFFICIENCY, 2013. I saw on the internet that there are two versions of display size. A 5.8-inch 400x240 display is standard with Audio 20 and also 7-inch 800x480 Comand APS. There is not much written on the internet. Can anyone please explain if there is any difference beside size of the screen? A year of manufacture of a car has nothing with this. You can find a car that is 2011year with bigger screen than 2013...

And the second question.. Is it possible to replace 5.8-inch with 7-inch display?

Here is the link that I found so far: https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/pictur...ft-hands-on/5/



Comparison

Many thanks.

7" comes with the COMAND NTG4.5
5.8" comes with the audio 20/50 APS versions.
I'm not sure if the audio APS module supports the screen resolution for the 7"

you can replace it for sure. question is if you want to replace it to have the 800x480 resolution or just to have a bit bigger screen?

Because of the bigger screen, of course.

2013 W204 C250 Coupe.
The Audio 20 with the 5.8 inch display is in the base model with the Becker Map Pilot unit in the glovebox. The COMAND Online with the 7 inch screen is an optional item, and standard in the mid-range models and beyond. It has inbuilt navigation.

There are big differences between the two systems - COMAND has 10GB music space, SD card slot, voice activated commands, internet browser, weather app, and of course bigger screen and better resolution.

No idea if the screens are compatible. You would need the facia panel also as I believe the bezel housing the screen is a different size.

Yes you can replace it. All you need is from the other version 7inch display and facial panel. That's all I've done this before many times. You will get bigger screen and better resolution. It's worth it.

Ive looked into this and thinking about doing it to. Ive found used 7 inch displays for good prices on ebay. If anybody has convereted the 5.8 to 7 What else do you have to change? And do you have part numbers for everything that has to be replaced thank you in advance and i have a 2014 c300 4matic sport with the smaller screen.

Abdeckung Kombiinstrument: A2046890039,

Abdeckung Oben: A2046890639 (You can probably use the current frame),
Abdeckung Unten: A2046890839 (You can probably use the current frame).

Okay, let us know. As I see you can use also display A1729003904 . It's younger year

I've been told that these models has the same type of display – ML GL SLK C GLK SL

w2010 w204 c300 amg sports package
w204 2011 to 2014 android screen

maybe just go for the 10.25 inch android screen i think they make it for that style head unit already

i have a youtube channel where i have installed a mirorlink via wifi in my car and its great but it is the flip up screen
i just thought id mention that u can most likely get a 10.25" screen now even for your car

youtube @MIKEYZ VLOGZ


so heres a lthe screen im talking about it comes with everythign you need for plug and play and you'll have that tesla style screen
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2G-R...830f5b0b049-22
so for about 600usd it can be shipped to your door
pls correct me if im wrong ..but im sure your interiror is about the same however you can always ask
just thought id share that withyou
THIS IS THE COVER OF MY CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE MIKEYZ VLOGZ
