    GLC Coupe
  1. Hi all, Just wanted to share the latest modification that I have done for my GLC Coupe. With my Comand NTG 5 that was installed, I wanted to see what else can be done to the car and since there is no CarPlay or Android Auto on the GLC Coupe (C253), I was thinking of the possibility to have AirPlay instead of just CarPlay since Airplay effectively means that I can have my ENTIRE iPhone mirrored to the screen of my car. Wouldn't that be cool ? Asked around and was looking fro HDMI input but it was a tough hunt. Many video input in the after market space are still stuck at the traditional RCA plugs which does no good to the latest Apple TV since it's all HDMI. Why get another converter and try to convert from HDMI to RCA etc. More points of failure. Found some sources out there and it turns out that it is only 480p resolution which is not fantastic. No HD on the Apple TV ? No Way. Managed to find someone that was very willing to explore and found a a HDMI input box @ 720p. The problem is of course there was no Aux in for my car model (Somehow I don't know why) and I eventually settled for FM transmitter which works out pretty well considering that I am stationary when I play with my Apple TV for entertainment. Here are some photos to share. I can have Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, Toggle (Live TV requires Toggle Prime membership), AirVideo HD (For streaming all my videos from home), Viki ( VOD for Korean Drama) and I even have games on it. iTunes Music(With Lyrics) is not too bad on Apple TV because it's FM for me, it's not as ideal as someone with an AUX In. My internet runs off an portable wifi in the car for streaming and since you have plans like Data Infinity from Singtel @ 50GB more on top of your plan, it should not be any big issues. Reverse camera (or 360 camera if you have) all works as per normal since it will auto toggle when you hit the Reverse Gear. So for requirements, you got to have NTG5 Comand in order for it to work since the video box requires NTG5.

  3. Hi Angchug, Can you share the contact for this installer ?
  4. Nope. It's not resolved. My friend's E Class had the same sound even when driving forward once in a while when he hits the brakes. According to some workshop, they say because it's Brembo Brakes that Merc uses that causes this sound.
  5. I thought it was 4 pieces and thought it would look weird if its 2. Sold it and sold the buyer fixed it. Looks pretty good leh.. haha.. Maybe will buy again and fix it up.
  6. ITEM SOLD.
  7. Did your dealer swiped out your tyres? I don't recall MB comes with Hankook Tyres and they don't look like run flats which are supposed to be standard.
  8. My GLC Coupe is from PI and it was a UK Dealer who got from MB and then shipped to HK Dealer. Then the PI here in SG got from the HK Dealer. Imagine the number of flips and it's still cheaper.. How much is C&C Making ? haha. I got mine in 6 weeks after confirming but I was lucky because they had stock. I used Bluetooth for my Spotify and all my Chinese characters appeared without issue. Leave the car and the music stops and when I get back in, it starts to play again. I think it's good enough for me. The Screen size is a bit small for mine as it did not come with COMAND NTG4.5 but functionality is sufficient for my usage. CarPlay is a nice to have thing but I am happy using WAZE with my Spotify fully via Bluetooth where it fades in and out automatically when there's any alert. Why bother to have CarPlay when you are restricted to what you can use ?
  9. iRoad V9 for me as well. The only issue is when you hit the brakes, your video footage has the red line but this is for all cameras since the camera is installed in from of the camera.
