Just bought a new C Class with a Becker Map pilot installed. Can I load my Speed Cameras into this product and if so which Database is used?

Ditto would like to do this also if possible.

Using the camera alert on the iphone 4 doesn't work that well through the media interface (have to have the ipod playing to hear the notices!)

Did this ever get answered as I have just taken delivery of my new C class and it has a Becker Nav? Thanks

We'd need to establish what, if any, support it has for custom POIs. Any mention of this in the manual?

Does the Becker Content Manager from here give any clues. The downloadable user guide does not, as said above Sad
In the past, Becker have been known to use iGO Nav software. If this is the case here, and you can 'get at' the device fie system, it's almost definite that you will be able to use the PGPSW database Very Happy
The screen dumps in the user guide don't look like iGO, but iGOs UI is extremely configurable to make it look just the way you want it to (if you are clever enough Very Happy )

Do you have any linkes to a user-guide, review of the system or images of it so we know what we're looking at?

Does the device have any SD card or USB access?

Good question Smile I am at work so will have to have a look when home but I know it has USB access for updating the maps and loading Becker POIs. I dont think it has a SD card.

User manual is here

Nice unit! About time Mercedes dropped Command, that was a pile of wottsits, I know, I had one.

Well I can see that you unplug the brains and connect to your computer via USB, and that it uses The Content Manager software.

So the first thing you need to do is plug it in and see if that throws any light on matters?

Not so! If you select the Audio icon in CamerAlert (avail when itunes control is visible) you can route the audio to iPhone speaker if you wish, its there for just this scenario.

Hi,

Yes i know about rerouting through the iphone speaker, however as my phone is plugged into the socket inside the armrest the volume is not really loud enough.

However if using BT for the connection it works fine through the car speakers without the ipod playing.

Also, just popped out to the car and the Becker does have a SD card slot.

Cheers

Ash.

Interesting you say that as I was in two minds about getting the COMAND system...

User Guide Here
It seems to have both USB and SD card slot but does not seem to say what the SD is for.
And look how easy it is to change the battery Shocked

Just hooked it up to my laptop and you have full access to the file system including the Nav program and all the map details. They are .psf files???
