1994 E320 Coupe questions

Hey everyone,

I just bought a 1994 Black E320 coupe with 56k miles, and drove back from Connecticut to Austin, TX in it. I have a few questions that I don't think have been answered on the board. I did a search and couldn't find them.

1. What's up with the phone? It has the old ghetto analog phone connection with the speakerphone and some sort of unit in the trunk. Can I do anything with this? I have a motorola timeport which they used in the newer cars, so I was hoping that there was some way to adapt the sytem to use my phone.

2. Is there any sort of flip up navigation system that will work in the dash? I think most won't because the screen would hit the overhang since the deck is recessed.

3. Is it possible to remove the ignition retarding resistor? I looked for about half an hour for it, but couldn't find it. Then I read about someone who had a 1995 E320 and didn't have one. I'm assuming that I may not have one either.

Thanks in advance if you're able to answer any of my questions. I'm really excited about my car. I had an 84 380SE a couple years ago which I really loved, but it died after two months. Glad to be back in the fold

The analog phone is basically useless. I'm told they can call 911 even if not activated. Locally, I got a price of 25.00 per mo. with 15 mins. free to activate.

Likewise, I think there is no easy nav. system that will fit.Still a great car, good luck!

Here's a few pics of my '94 E320 Cpe. . .

with Alpine GPS and analog cell phone.

That setup worked fine for me even though it was an analog phone. It very much depends on who is your service provider. Verizon has the best coverage of all providers.

The GPS was added externally on the side as shown in the first pic. It worked fine in that position. As you can see, it is angled toward me so it was easy to see.

You can add an Alpine in-dash monitor but you have to 'gut' the Mercedes radio, CD player and end up with a complete Alpine replacements. For me, that was too severe!

This may give you some ideas.
