Does anyone know if 1998 ML320 came pre-wired for the OEM type GPS system. I saw Mercedes GPS units on ebay and wondering if I can instal it myself. My car came with a radio/tape unit and 6-CD changer in the back. Please advice.

Thanks.

I want to say if your ML came equipped with an MCS unit intead of a standard radio, that it is prewired for NAV. If it just came with the radio as you described, I believe you'll have to buy an MCS unit, with Nav drive is it isn't already installed, install an antenna and wire it. And also get a new trim panel around the radio. Your radio shouldn't be D2B, so I'm actually kinda thinking a factory MCS will not work in your vehicle, but I'm not totally sure.

Your model had the afterthought dash mounted GPS unit. The MCS will not work on your vehicle without massive (read costly) modifications. Best to look for a handheld unit if GPS is a must.

Thank you all for your reply. After doing some more research I realized that aftermarket unit is the only way to go in my situation.

Thanks.
