Does COMAND show iPod album art?

Hey Guys:

I was wondering...does the COMAND screen show album art from the iPod?

Can you stream video from the iPod onto the COMAND screen?

Don't confuse the Video In Motion with the VideoKey (unlock). The VideoKey unlocks functions that lock while in motion (internal DVD, some Nav functions, etc). The Video In Motion is a kit that gives you video inputs that work regardless of park, drive, etc. One is typically reserved for backup camera, and two more for other video, like iPod etc.

Class C coupé 2011
Smile Album artwork on COMAND

YES, the COMAND screen does show artwork from IPOD. I've ordered the Class C coupé 2011 and having tested the car have seen this first hand. However, strangely enough some songs do show the album cover and others don't (even though on my ipod and itunes they are ALL visible). I'm still trying to figure out why..... Will know more when I get the car!

Attached is a photo of the dashboard where you can see the Artwork appearing on the Comand screen. Will give more details if you like when I get the car end of August.

Class C coupé 2011
cover art in comand online /mercedes class c 2011

Attached is a photo of how the cover art appears on the mercedes class c comand online (mid 2011). I had connected an IPOD first and strangely only some cover art appeared. Then, I connected a USB stick with all media files and all cover art showed up. It looks great.

The 2012 E class have a proper color screen and show ipod art, as does the facelifted (2012 in NA) C-class.
