2019 larger screen

Hi all

Do you think will be possible to change the screen? Understand there are many different connections so difficult to do it

Thanks!

If you are talking about fitting the facelift wider screen to a pre-facelift, I can't see that ever being possible. Different resolutions, aspect ratios and software design.

The best option for a larger screen, but retaining OEM look and functionality would be an aftermarket android screen. You obviously also get the benefits of things like Google maps, waze, carplay, android auto etc

Something like this would be my pick, looks much better than the super wide ones most people seem to fit.

I think Tobias Moers said in one interview that in AMG the screen needs to be positioned lower, so that the driver can see right front corner. In case one install bigger screen, this will prevent visibility.

Also looking at one, would appreciate your review! Do you have command navigation currently?

Found this picture of the same 9 inch screen, but installed in a different car.



IMO, it looks better proportioned than the super wide 10 inch one.

Looks very nice actually!

But the screen in the facelift is 10.25 inch right?

It is, but the entire interface is designed for that wider aspect ratio and the corners of the facelift version are much more rounded than the android one.

Have had it half installed but I wouldn't recommend it just yet as my unit has terrible light bleed.; it could just be my unit or it could be a widespread thing. They are currently working with me to try and get that resolved and I will be sure to post my full thoughts once that is sorted (after all, customer service is everything).



Other than the light bleed everything has been positive so far. It's snappy, responsive and integrates very nicely with the OEM functions such as 360 camera and radio.

Its narrower bezels (especially on the sides) and slightly wider aspect ratio make it look much more modern.

Stock comand screen
Unit dimensions: 9 3/4" x 5 1/2"
Screen dimensions: 7 1/3" x 4"

Android screen
Unit dimensions: 9 3/4" x 5 1/5"
Screen dimensions: 8 1/3" x 4 1/5"

Very cool! What do you mean by light bleed? Did it come with everything you needed to install it?

This is the light bleed on my unit (the bright white lighting at the edges - this is a completely black image). It's only really visible on dark backgrounds, but that includes the stock system and using night mode of google maps or waze, so it kinda sucks.

Oh and if your car doesn't have aux, it's probably a good idea to add an aux port so that you don't get an audio delay using bluetooth.

Search "w205 aux module" on eBay.

No updates as of yet, a replacement is on the way but as everything is from China, it all takes time.

They assure me the replacement will not have the same issue and I will be sure to update this post with my findings.

Started getting dark so these are the best pictures I have for now.

New screen has a small amount of light bleed in the bottom left corner, but it is WAY better than the old one and perfectly liveable.

Very cool! Could you please post a video showing some of the functions? I would like to see how Google maps, Spotify, etc worked with it.
