Mercedes-Benz

POIbase makes it possible to enhance most Mercedes-Benz cars featuring a fixed Comand Online sat nav with additional POI's. These include the locations of stationary and mobile safety cameras a well as millions of other points catering to countless different interests. Installing the data on a Comand Online sat nav is easy, fast and simple.

POIbase is compatible with the following Mercedes Comand Online sat navs:

  •  Mercedes Comand Online NTG 4.5 (models from 03/2011 and later)
  •  Mercedes Comand Online NTG 4.7 (models from 03/2011 and later)
  •  Mercedes Comand Online NTG 4.5 (models from 03/2011 and later)
  •  Mercedes Comand Online NTG 5.x (tested on S-Class, W222, S500 4matic, EZ 09/14)
  •  Mercedes Comand Online NTG 5.5 (not W213, W238)
  •  Mercedes MBUX (Comand 6.0)

Additionally, Garmin Map Pilot Systems in Mercedes vehicles are compatible. Details can be found here (German only): Zusätzliche POIs & Blitzer für Garmin Map Pilot

Features

  •   Safety cameras can be dsiplayed on the map
  •   POI's can be displayed on the map
  •   Audio warnings

Notes

  •  Audio warnings are only available on models from 2013 or later.
  •  On the Comand Online NTG 5.0, the number of POI's is restricted to 32,000. Using the POIbase radius search before downloading POI's can be useful in this instance. Newer models such as MBUX can process significantly more POI's.
  •  Importing data to the Comand Online System may take somewhat longer than normal (up to 5 min).
  •  No Mercedes devices support transferring POI's to the hard disk. This means the SD card or USB stick (MBUX) must remain in the sat nav while the POI's are required.
  •  POI's can only be displayed on the map if the zoom level is less than 1 KM (circa half a mile). Audio warnings are not affected by this.
