The optionally available COMAND APS control and display system with DVD navigation (series in G 500 and G 55 AMG) combines the operation for the navigation system, radio, CD player and, if desired, CD changer and telephone. A TV tuner for analogue and digital TV reception is available as an option in combination with COMAND APS.
Satellite-supported GPS navigation guides the driver along the shortest or fastest way to the address entered. To avoid distracting the driver visually, the directions to the destination are also provided as audio.
On the 6.5-inch colour display, the optional reversing camera mounted on the tailgate reveals what is happening behind the car. In conjunction with the optional extra of ultrasonic reversing aid, this not only makes parking easier, it also simplifies manoeuvring on terrain that is difficult to see.
