Whats next?
What size screen do you have now? If you`re happy with the screen you have you, could try & find out if car play/ Android auto is available in your car.

What size of android screen do you prefer? I like the look of the 10.25" screen in CLA but the 9" may look better in C class.

To get the screen go back through the treads & see where other people got their screens from.... lots of different suppliers

How does one go about doing that?

The 9" probably would look best. 10.25 looks a little wide but I'll take a look again.

Will definitely do that. I would love to have Waze and Spotify options on the dash and not on a phone mount somewhere.

Look for this symbol on your USB ports... If you have this your car should be able to have car play activated at the dealer

Car play / Android auto

The 10.25 screen looks fantastic to me in the CLA but they all look pretty stock when fitted... I don`t have mine fitted yet but hoping to get time over Easter holidays

Android 8.1 10.25" screen 8 core 4gb ram 64gb rom for CLA but they also have a C class mount ... Got it on Alibaba, I could get you the contact if you'd like but after I install, just so I know it all works fine.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Would love to see it once you have it all kitted and fitted. I'm.not opposed to the wider screen at all. Especially if it works flawlessly. So far from this thread I gather

The 9.3 from AliExpress has had many problems with poor quality and stuff not working

There is an 8.4 on Carlife but nobody mentions if it works for the C300 W205 with COMAND

Most folks seem to be going for the 10.25 from Carlife as it seems to be fully functional, doesn't give errors or crash and allows android auto (Waze etc) nicely now that wide screen is supported.

Wonder if there is an audio shop in the GTA that works on Benz.

Android 8.1 10.25" screen 8 core 4gb ram 64gb rom for CLA but they also have a C class mount ... Got it on Alibaba, I could get you the contact if you'd like but after I install, just so I know it all works fine.
Sure. More info is power. Although the safe choice so far seems to be 10.25 from Carlife?

As this is such a discussed topic wonder if someone with all the knowledge can put a primer together as a new OP.

I was hoping this would help you MichaelCS, but it doesn't look like the C Series is on the list . . . .

Damn! Thanks for posting this though. I might forward this to the MB salesman that sold me the car and ask him whether there is anything newer in 2017 or 2018 that allow this. I've reached out to a local audio store that installs custom systems to see what they recommend for my vehicle as well.

With the 2019 face lift of the command 10.25 inch screen, would it be possible to buy that mb part and just swap it out?

Hi all Iíve ordered the 10.25 screen from road top and asked for this extra cable to be included, Iíve read thru the many pages on this subject but does this cable solve the audio delay issue and does the usb cable connect in my armrest am assuming it does 🤪 cheers

Does this have video out capabilities? For example say you want to send video to a monitor behind the head rest?

Temp`s are fine on mine or they were before I installed Car launcher & turned off the temp setting.

My home screen looks like this now, I`ve changed it a little from then.
Press Star/fav key at command wheel to return to the stock screen.

C Class 220 AMG Premium plus cabriolet selenite grey with black roof. 2017
Planning to fit this later today, but for those who have it does it allow video in motion when using it?
i currently have a harness adapter attached to allow this ( yes I know the dangers but itís for child who watches stuff on there the peace and quiet is worth it alone!) once I fit the new screen and all wiring I assume I will need to remove the harness I have fitted for the new screen etc but will I loose all Video in motion or will it be available via the screens software itself ..
anyone confirm plz thanks

How did you do that ? in the settings of NTG ?

Did you bought the usb dongle on their website ? it is not included with the screen.

Don't know, for me they work the same way.

I just went into the oem system screen and went to choice device source, thing that thru me originally is if you go via the setting where u see a pic of each device the aux doesnít show but if you look at the bottom of screen thereís another way click on device and it then shows them all listed aux was there... hope thst makes sense can always take a pic to show ..


Did you bought the usb dongle on their website ? it is not included with the screen.


when I purchased via road top (who I gave a hard time too initially I might add for not sending as advertised with DHL ...they refunded me $50 and itís obviously arrived now so they came good) anyway.... I asked for the usb aux to be sent with my screen and they did along with the BT standard one so that was great.


Don't know, for me they work the same way.
carplay working now road top sent me a file to update the app and they sorted it... no idea what was wrong.



Im getting an issue connecting for screen mirroring,I get to final stage on my home screen on iPhone to connect to to carvscreen and says unable to connect when I try ...not sure whatís wrong...

also anybody able able to help I tried to install Netflix app and says my device isnít compatible with this version ?? Who has netflix loaded?

Hitting few problems as I try stuff out but seem to be sorting them aswell....

by the way I have no delay in audio and video using the usb aux cable .
