Notes about AUX inputs 

The IMI-1000 utilises the AUX pin on the head unit, this requires you to have “AUX” as an input in the SOUND menu. In all COMAND NTG4.X head units the AUX input can be enabled in the engineering menu (instructions on how to do this are provided when you purchase a unit from us.) You do not require a physical AUX port as the IMI-1000 will connect directly to the head unit AUX pins via the supplied Plug and Play harness.

On some AUDIO20 head units (found in A class and B Class) you will have to activate aux with our NTG4.5 Aux activator or use a MERCEDES MEDIA-AUX lead.


This kit is compatible with front parking camera, reverse parking camera and 360 degree cameras.

SKU: IMI-1000-MINI-1-1 Category:


The IMI-1000 is a retrofit CarPlay and Android Auto upgrade kit which adds wireless connectivity to Mercedes Vehicles equipped with a central display.


2007-2007 : 7.0″ Pop-up Screen (NTG4.0)

2009-2015 : 7.0″ Display Screen (NTG4.5/NTG4.7)

The IMI-1000 works by communicating with your existing entertainment system as well as your in-car entertainment system (Including the OEM Steering wheel controls, rotary controls, touchscreen(if fitted), vehicle speaker system and the Central Information Display). It operates in either by-pass mode or in “active mode”. In by-pass mode the IMI-1000 does not affect the normal operation of the in-car entertainment system, the standard Mercedes COMAND NTG4.0, NTG4.5 and NTG4.7 user interfaces as well as the standard COMAND navigation system(if fitted) will be shown on the CID when in by-pass mode. Active mode is initiated when you connect your mobile phone to the car via the wireless Bluetooth connection or USB cable. After connection, the IMI-1000 activates CarPlay or Android Auto (dependent upon the operating system of your phone, iOS or Android). The Central Information Display (CID) will then show the CarPlay or Android Auto user interface and unleash the power of CarPlay/Android Auto!
