COMAND 2.5

COMAND 2.5 (do not confuse with COMAND-APS NTG2.5) is a first generation of COMAND systems, fitted on the W220. The “2.5” digits refers to the height of 2.5 DIN. This COMAND system comes with cassette audio and a CD drive for the navigation maps. Also there is a FM/AM radio function and a 4-channel amplifier with external connection to other systems. D2B optical bus is used in COMAND 2.5 for connecting to the external CD changer, the telephone system and some other optional systems. COMAND 2.5 was an option for almost all models and with an option code code 352.

COMAND 2.0/COMAND 2.0 MOPF

By removing the cassette drive from COMAND 2.5 this head unit was transformed into a COMAND 2.0 (2.0 refering to the 2.0 DIN height). In the W210 E-Class these units were fitted in a rectangular shape whereas in W203 and R230 models in more rounded shape.
I S-Class model manufactured after 2003, instead of COMAND 2.5 a COMAND 2.0 MOPF (Widescreen version) was fitted.
All three COMAND 2.5, COMAND 2.0 and COMAND 2.0 MOPF are refered to COMAND 2, first generation systems, because they are sharing the same technology. Do not confuse them with COMAND APS NTG1.

In year 2002 a new generation COMAND system was introduced on W211 E-Class. It was designed for a new techology MOSTO which replaced previous D2B network. All new MOST systems were named COMAND-APS as a differentiation from the previous D2B systems.
The NTG1 has a DVD disc player for navigation instead of CD, this allowed to have the whole region in one disc (for example Europe). NTG1 systems were also able to play MP3 CDs/DVDs.
