Post E55 Command RDS

According to some information regarding my 2001 E55 from Alldata, the Command system radio has RDS capability but has to be activated. Can anybody help me with the activation.

Thanks
Dan

Neither the COMAND 2.0 (E class, CLK class or 203 chassis C class) or COMAND 2.5 (S class, CL class) have RBDS (Radio Broadcast Data System) functionality.
Some of the very early literature on this system did indicate that RBDS was a feature of COMAND.
MB says the possiblity exists for design update to RBDS, but is not currently planned.

I have messed with this before.

I think you can enable the TV funcion on the US version, but it lacks the tuner. So, what we did was to use the A/V inputs and an Alpine mobile tuner. Then the screen was used as a TV.

I don't see how the RDS question got turned into a TV question?

I did a search for RDS on eBay and found this: eBay Auction

I don't know why MB saves the good stuff for Europe

Regards,

Don

Do you think the Ebay CD Player's RDS will work in the US?

Don
