Mercedes-Benz Accessory Navigation System for 2012 C-Class and SLK-Class

For Model Year 2012 the Accessory Navigation System (ANS) will replace the Nav + 4 system in the SLK-Class and C-Class Sedan and Coupe. The ANS will equip cars without the COMAND system with Navigation through the standard screen (Audio 20). The standard screen for these vehicles is larger for 2012 with enhanced clarity and better display. The system is also fully integrated with the central COMAND controller.The features of ANS include:

  • Reality View Pro
  • Display of highway intersections and exit ramps
  • Image display of road signs and lane information
  • Lane Guidance Pro
  • Recommends the optimal lane
  • Destination input via map
  • Real Time Traffic

Unlike the Nav + 4, ANS does not include iPod adapter, USB connection, or Bluetooth Audio streaming. The Nav +4 will still be available on the 2012 GLK-Class. The ANS MSRP is $1290.
