2012 Mercedes-Benz C350 C-Class Coupe COMAND Navigation System / Display
Live demonstration of the latest generation COMAND navigation system in the 2012 C-Class Coupe (C350). Voice recognition seems noticeably better than in my 2008 C-Class sedan while the inflection in the navigation voice has been altered to be more human and realistic. Add in the Sirius traffic built in and you have one killer navigation solution, all integrated from the manufacturer! Awesome stuff.
2012 Mercedes C250 Coupe Review
A true Mercedes and a reasonably fun one at that, the C250 Coupe's downfall lies under the hood.
Review and Photos
Performance. Luxury. German. These are three of the top qualifications for anyone looking to purchase an "entry-level" luxury sports coupe. One that isn't likely to pop up, however, is "value."

Full review of the 2009 Mercedes Comand system
Cockpit Management and Data system - COMAND for short - acts as a "command center" for all audio, telematics and telecommunications functions on Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Depending on vehicle specification, functions like the radio, CD player, DVD player, navigation system with dynamic routing, and amplifiers are all integrated in the COMAND system.
A high-performance processor controls the system and manages the various programs. If requested by the driver, the CD changer, sound system, TV receiver, telephone and Linguatronic voice control system can also be linked up to COMAND via an optical fibre ring bus named D2B or MOST.
The latest generation of the COMAND system used in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class boasts a large color TFT screen in 16:9 (wide-screen) format, and uses a multi-directional wheel - located in the center console - to navigate and use the numerous menus and functions. The system allows the control of a huge number of features, from seat bolster inflation to the satellite navigation.
With the Mercedes-Benz COMAND APS system, for instance, the car radio can act in concert with the telephone to establish contact with a service provider that will transmit digital traffic-jam warnings to the navigation system via SMS and recommend a detour if necessary.
The COMAND APS system includes a navigation computer with a second DVD player in the boot. The speech technology engine, used in the application is provided by Nuance CommunicationsI recently purchase a 2009 Mercedes CLK350 with Comand Navigation System. I've had a BMW Z4 factory Nav system and a Megellan portable system, so I have a number of years experience using Nav systems. I have read, re read, and re read again the Operator Manual and I have still not been able to understand how to 'effectively" use the Mercedes Nav system to direct me to a location using a reasonable route.
In my experience, if you are clueless on how to get somewhere, a Nav system will get you there, but not always using the most logical or quickest route. My experience so far tell me the my new Mercedes Nav system is the most ill-logical, worthless, piece of crap, Nav system I've ever owned.
I'd rather not have to rely on my 3 yr old portable Megellan Nav system, sticking to the windsheld of my $60k new Mercedes, with it's state-of-the-art Comand Nav System, but I guess if I have to rely on a Nav system getting me somewhere, I can't trust the Mercedes.
Fitted as standard, the latest COMAND multimedia system enables convenient, intuitive operation of a range of vehicle functions. The enhanced system includes an ECO function that plots the most fuel-efficient route, up to 40 GB HDD storage for the navigation system, 3D map display, and PIN-protected navigation update. It also comes with TMC (Traffic Message Channel) to help you stay one step ahead of road congestion.
Entertainment highlights include a 7.2 GB Music Register for storing audio files and a new music search function. This enables you to search by categories such as album or genre on the hard disk, SD-Card, USB device and CD/DVD player. You'll also appreciate BluetoothÂ® connectivity for hands-free phone calls, the latest Linguatronic voice-control system and a handy USB port in the glove compartment.

On February 13, 2011, Mercedes Benz announced that it would be unveiling a C-Class coupe variant for the 2012 model year. Starting in September 2011, the C-Class coupe will be made available in C250, C350, and C63 AMG editions.
The C 63 AMG is reportedly the first AMG-Mercedes designed from the ground up for performance, as compared to previous AMG cars which essentially featured "bolt on" performance modifications. The C 63 has a revised front end architecture that is taken from the CLK 63 AMG Black Series. The 7G-Tronic has AMG SpeedShift with three shift modes -- Comfort, Sport and Manual -- with the last one running with the converter locked allowing the driver to hold the engine at the rev limit. The ESP can now be completely turned off, interfering only under heavy braking. The car also has the quickest, most responsive steering of any Mercedes to date. Car and Driver tested the car in their December 2007 issue and recorded a 0--60 mph time of 3.9 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 12.3 seconds at 116 mph (187 km/h). This made the C63 AMG the quickest 4-door production sedan in the world at its debut.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a compact executive car produced by the Mercedes-Benz division of Daimler AG. First introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 190 range (W201, also nicknamed "Baby-Benz"), the C-Class was the smallest model in the marque's lineup until the 1997 arrival of the A-Class. The C-Class is built at Mercedes-Benz factories in Sindelfingen and Bremen, Germany as well as in Mercedes's factories in Brazil and Daimler AG's South African factory in East London. The very first W202 C-Class sedan was produced on June 1, 1993, and the second generation W203 C-Class rolled off the assembly line on July 18, 2000. The third generation W204 C-Class was launched in 2007. The C-Class is the entry-level offering in Mercedes-Benz's United States lineup.
The C-Class platform has been used for several coupes, including the CLC-Class (and its predecessor, the C-Class Sportcoupe) and the E-class Coupe (and its predecessor, the CLK-Class)
In December 2010, Mercedes released some photos and details of W204 C-Class facelift, which was officially unveiled during Detroit Auto Show in January 2011. Some new features of the new model includes engine start-stop system, 7G-tronic gearbox available for lower end models with revised gear ratios to improve fuel economy, a high resolution screen on the dashboard which has visual functions similar to the S and CL Class models, as well as some minor revision of the appearance of the interior and exterior of the car. The car also features the new Mercedes-Benz Comand APS system, first seen on the 2010 E Class. The new 2012 models are expected to be available at the dealers starting September 2011.
The W204 C-Class has 100 trim levels of equipment -- Classic, Elegance, Avantgarde, and AMG. The Classic is the base trim found only on the smaller four-cylinder engine models and come with Brighton cloth seats (ARTICO leather optional), while the Elegance has ARTICO leather (vinyl) upholstery standard (leather optional), and the Avantgarde has Liverpool/ARTICO fabric seats (leather optional). The Classic and Elegance lines retain the traditional Mercedes-Benz radiator grille usually on sedan models, with a three-point star bonnet emblem, and is designed to appeal to regular luxury buyers. The Avantgarde and AMG have a grille similar to that on Mercedes' sport coupe models, with three horizontal bars and a large centre-mounted star, plus there is additional equipment such as a three-spoke steering wheel, AMG bodykit, lower sport suspension, upgraded brake piston calipers, and larger alloy wheels, and these configurations are designed to position the C-Class as a sports sedan. Unlike previous generations of the C-Class and other contemporary Mercedes sedans which stayed with the traditional grille and hood ornament, the W204's advertising predominantly features the sport grille and AMG bodykit, especially in Canada and the United States.
