Title shows all :) - Not every Mercedes comes with full GPS and camera system - we do know that there are tons of Mercedes Benz vehicles running without GPS or Rear Camera.
Us, Naviplus will always be ready to support those needs - coming from experiences of Our installers - who were ex Mercedes Benz mechanics from dealerships.
A Reverse Camera system that grants Dynamic Guide Lines and Optical Sensor System - compatible with Pre 2014 Mercedes Benz models - Installed on MY10 E250
As you can see, It's not exactly same as the system current Benz has, but It still offers same features and mostable, It will be compatible with your vehicle.
Pretty much only design difference, yet consider this whole new rear camera system was implemented from 2014, started with CLA and GLA classes, It should give some excitement when It gets compared to the genuine premium package options back then.
Moving guide lines will show the direction of steering wheel, and disatnace will be shown on Optical sensor Ui with colors - Green to Yellow then Red.
Also, front sensors are compatible with the system as well - if Front camera is installed / or you are parking in Reverse parallel between 2 cars, both Front and Rear sensors will be displayed with color alarams.
Not to mention rear sight will pop up as soon as you put your car on reverse, the way it should be.
Although It doesn't grant the function of the genuine system that switchable between Camera / Sensor only, It will still do what It's meant to do, and besides why would someone want Sensor to be displayed only while the car has reverse camea working fine?
It's not a game changing feature nor best system you can ever have. But as we said, when dealership isn't supportive for what you are after, perhaps looking into an aftermarket product will help - It's a Plan B.
And when the Plan B grants you the same or better quality with more reasonable price, at some point
it will become an alternative Plan A that always works.
