I have ordered my GLA 200cdi AMG and i know it comes with the wiring for the Beker Map Pilot which is £495 from Mercedes, i have been told you can get it else where for around £249. I have seen them on ebay and Amazon brand new, will these work and are they legit?

Yes they should be fine, just make sure you get the latest model which has an 8gb drive, I've got a Becker in my car and while it's not the best satnav in the world it seems perfectly acceptable

I bought my Map Pilot from a reseller on ebay and it works fine. As some else said just make sure you get the current 8GB version

I also got mine through eBay. Cost me £270, was brand new still in wrapper. Works fine and came with a free 45 day map upgrade.

I must admit I didn't really trust the ones on ebay. Did you guys buy from a private seller or from a company? Mind sharing the link?
Thanks

I haven't got a link but the username on ebay is coulson.2009. Delivery was quick and as i said it came with a 45 day free map upgrade. I also purchased the danger alerts software for £20 from Becker.

I was lucky enough to get this free as part of a package, the dealer told me though that I could have bought one via ebay for less, the only thing to check was the region as there's a lot of different versions for sale... some are region specific and that could be an issue if you get Romanian for the UK, etc... but I can advise that the system is great, easy to update via the wifi (linked to a laptop), plus it's fast and very intuitive... the only odd issue is that sometimes the system looses the link and won't start up, which is quickly resolved by wiggling the unit in the glove box... this seems to start it again so I think there's a slight loose connection...
