Expensive but worth every penny. Lightning quick to accept alternative routes too.

To have a system integrated with the controls is fantastic and it works as well as the comand unit. Item delivered on time and as described. The system works out of the box but i wasn’t sure if i had the latest maps. You download a content manager program to your pc to update the maps and software. Initially i downloaded the wrong program and it wouldn’t connect. I went back to the map pilot site instead of the becker site and downloaded another becker content manager. Confusingly they both have the same name. Once i had the right program it all seemed straightforward although the interface is a little confusing. In operation the unit is maybe not as modern as some but i prefer the straightforward 2d north up view so it works well for me. To have a system integrated with the controls is fantastic and it works as well as the comand unit i paid £1000 in my previous c class.

Pleased but a bit frustrated. As always when i buy something of the internet i read all the reviews. Prior to this system i had the full command system on my old mercedes. I have only had this becker system for a day but i am quite happy with it as i does what it should do and effectively. I do have a complaint and maybe this is down to me. It took 5 computers to find one that would allow me to down load the updates and this was an ancient laptop (used to keep doors open) running vista. Prior to this on every other system it simply said the usb had malfunctioned. Not being unused to seeing this i did try various leads and sockets to no avail until i plugged it in (as a last resort) to the old laptop. That all being said from there on all is well and i am pleased. Frankly the old command system cost £200 plus to update maps and they were not really up to date so this i hope works out a lot cheaper.

Does the job adequately but there are certain drawbacks. Used mine for the first time on a few trips out today and, as a navigation device, it seems solid enough. Easy to read, routes, voice commands and maps seemed fine. This is why i paid over the odds for a nav device. I don’t want messy sucker marks on my windscreen and trailing power cables. This is nice and neat, takes 2 seconds to fit and integrates nicely with the cars screen (both main big screen and the smaller one above the wheel) and steering wheel voice button. This alone was worth it for me. – maps and display seem ‘ok’. Comparable with a cheap entry level garmin sat nav.

The in car intergration is good, though i had an issue with volume of. Did take a long time to download and update the maps. The in car intergration is good, though i had an issue with volume of the nav voice (just needed to turn it up. )if google maps is 5 out of 5, this nav would be a 4 out of 5.

Very good condition for second hand , just like new and does exactly what it says. Only negative is that it did not include usb cable in box.

Downloaded the software to manage the module. First off it couldnt find it. Then it did and started to update. Halfway through it insisted i register. Wasnt able to as the popup window was so tiny the email and password boxes were obscured by the instruction buttons. It then closed that down and informed me it was downloading updates. Then it instructed me to reset the device which i did. It then stated it was updating the module which too a fair amount of time. Finally the screen informed me that it could not communicate with the module.

The waze app or google maps offer a better experience and logic to avoid realtime disruptions on the road. But my car came with the great big screen in the middle so i had to use it for more than radio 2. The user interface is good but many times i’ve now heard ‘disruption ahead – it has not been possible to find an alternative route’. Whereas the waze app on my iphone offers a faster alternative.
