The 2017 model has some different details. Two that I noticed are:

1) Black hood emblem instead of silver

2) Black hub caps instead of silver 

Normally those two above comes with only either the "Night Edition" or "Night Package"

You are observant! I did not notice such differences.

I paid particular attention to these details precisely because I was modding mine to a "Night Edition" :)

Any Bro can advice the mileage for first servicing? Mine already 5K but no message to prompt for servicing. For C n C cars, when is the first servicing? Thanks a lot....

was thinking for SEA maps could we approach JB CnC to see how much they charge for map update if they have?

might be cheaper than Elbest, they seem to not like to reply via pm the pricing of map change:hot:

Elebest charges 3.6k for SEA maps conversion. Pretty high consider it is only software and no hardware. 

If you guys have other source , pls share

managed to find this on ebay, not sure if u want to try it out?

suspect it's just a swap of SD card will do the trick

or i'll be heading to JB C&C to ask if they sell the map and how much

SE was commenting on this when I took delivery of my e200 from C&C. 

Update map on COMAND ~3k, but update map on  Garmin map pilot (my e200 on audio 20), ~300.

Isn't our map on our navigation system updated if we took delivery of our car this year? Is there a need to update again?

No need to update when taking delivery , in fact  I haven't  bothered to update the maps on my factory fitted navigation in my previous cars. 

Guess se was trying to console me about having the Garmin for navigation instead of the COMAND one. 😂

I'll still use my phone GPS anyway...

I also thinking if want to install sg/my maps or not. the whole navi button so big there but cannot press... but my PI (TTS) charges 2k. now i connect my handphone (not car play) use google map is free... my wife says install map might as well use that money to change the front grill to diamond look one... which is quite true. really hard to justify a few thousand just for map...

totally agree! I have yet to collect my W213 E200 AVG which comes with Audio 20. Still look for a mod to allow me for it to take Andriod Auto and Apple Carplay. The options are:

1. Go Elebest to install Comand. Most expensive option.

2. Go JB C&C to install. Troublesome.

3. Install the Navi HUD. Much cheaper but limited after sales. Have to DIY and fixed the connection to the OBD2 socket.

4. Buy a handphone holder and use my phone as a navigation aid. Cheapest but not cool. :))

You can connect to the USB port (left one not the apple play one) or bluetooth, but both will not show your map on the navi screen, only handphone. but at least the sound does come through the speaker so it's good enough for me.

The last time I checked Apple Carplay, it only supports Apple map not good maps/waze, but that was when carplay 1st launch, not sure now, better verify again. My car has command online but need to top up few hundres more for carplay, which I didn't. I did option 4 mentioned :P.

Option 4 can look cool too if we can find a nice holder. :)) 

By the way, did you try to connect your apple phone via the usb port to the Comand system? I was told the A-class works this way through Audio20.

my option 4 is from taobao, yet to receive it so not sure how cool it will be, but at least doesn't look big, magnetic type.

I can connect the phone through USB, so my phone call, maps and music sound all out from speaker. the left screen does show what song it is playing. Does this means it is connected to Command system...? Because I really dont know what command system is.. haha.

Am still trying to figure out what is the WIFI for too, I know overseas model have SIM card inside, but ours shouldn't have. so not sure if any use.
