Mercedes CL500 for Navigation, Bluetooth, and Back-up Camera

The owner of this Mercedes CL500 came to us hoping to upgrade their factory radio for something that included navigation, Bluetooth, and a back-up camera. To best fit their application we decided to go with a Pioneer Z140BT  in-dash navigation system. This system is a top of the line unit with a great user interface and it also includes Bluetooth, AM/FM/CD/DVD, USB, iPod, Aux-in, and HD Radio. This Pioneer unit is also able to interface with a Rydeen Back-up camera as well as with the vehicles factory steering wheel controls.

  1. Hi,

    I'm looking to do the same setup for the same car. Unfortunately, I am on the west coast. But could you please provide any advice with regard to installation? For example, were you able to keep the factory sound system? Thanks in advance!
