Sat nav

Bought a new gla 220 but reluctantly didn't take the sat nav package, how could I go about getting one not paying a dealers extortionate price?

Do you want an integrated one or why not just look at a Garmin?

I'm in the same boat, thought 400+ for an SD card a bit extortionate, especially with a normal sat nav costing about 150 or so, and even cheaper/ free apps on the phone. With the iphone/ apple play function, I've been led to believe by my salesman that I can easily use google maps from my iphone via the screen, or any other satnav app that runs on the phone. This brings me to why I came to this thread - does anyone who doesn't have the sat nav SD card, run any recommended app for speed/ safety camera alerts (my old Juke and RAV both had this feature as part of the sat nav)?

many thanks

sat nav

I too have ordered GLA sport without sat nav package . I am hoping to use either Google maps or Here maps that I have installed on my android through the Android auto.
If not happy I may purchase sd card at later date.

I would just go with the phone method, free updates so you don't need to worry about the MB maps going out of date.

Are these genuine? I heard that the SD cards are coded to the car once enabled.

Apparently so

thanks for the heads up.

<edit>
Maybe not, looking at feedback, posted without packaging, and all the negative responses are a very non English response. Having said that, there area a lot of happy punters, and 50 is significantly cheaper than Mercedes, probably worth a punt.

Picked up one on ebay for 50, worked first time. Only downside is that it doesn't come with speed camera alerts, apparently Mercedes have disabled the function as they illegal in Germany & France.

Anyone tried enabling them by adding a POI fiel to the SD card? If so, what file did you use, and where did you get it?

thanks
