Hi Big G.
Did you fit the xtrons head unit?
If so, how have you found it - any good - would you recommend?
I have a W211 with Audio 50.
Would like bluetooth, aux / usb / sd option and ideally DAB radio.
NTG2.5 upgrade looking like 700+ - and won't give DAB.
HFP Dongle new is c. 270 - and only gives me BT calls.
So looking at aftermarket head unit.
Looking at:

- plus would need separate DAB tuner.

Just stumbled across xtrons tonight.

Cheers, P

Hey P, yeah really cannot fault the xtrons unit does exactly what it says on the tin. I love the built in.sat nav and bluetooth calls/connectivity and I've also wired up a usb port.in my compartment where 12v charger is so I'm able to play songs and watch movies from my usb stick. I like also the fact its shaped as the oem unit and looks totally factory and works with the multifunction steering wheel. So yeah in summary far superior to the audio 20 it replaced and worth every penny
