Do I have NTG3.5 or NTG3.5?

The easiest way to determine if you have an NTG3.0 or NTG3.5 system is to look at the front panel of the head unit, NTG3.0 has a PCMCIA slot on the front – this system features a rectangular display connector

A very professional and fast delivery provided. Several issues in fitting to my Mercedes GLC 2017. But Scott on hand to offer advice. System now working perfectly.

I bought a 2010 MB with a very dated and limited head unit, but with the IA CarPlay kit (NTG4.0) I have all the functionality I need. The support was exceptional, patient and logical when helping me navigate the menus needed to get it setup. I cannot recommend these guys enough.

Purchased an IMI-1000 and rear reversing camera for my 2008 e92 BMW with CiC iDrive controller. All cables and connectors were included, installation was straightforward and detailed instructions were sent via email. Scott was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. Android auto and Apple carplay work seamlessly, as does the reversing camera. I'm delighted with my purchase and would highly recommend Integrated Automotive!

Does exactly what’s it’s meant to. Really impressed with the quality. I struggled with the install instructions as I have no experience in something like this, however I was helped along the way instantly by messaging them on Facebook. 5/5 brilliant

Just had the unit fitted in my Mercedes S63 2017 which had the factory fitted rear entertainment in..... it all worked with no issues. It took about 2 hours but no issues. The CarPlay screen is now huge....worth doing fully recommend

The IMI-1000 is a retrofit CarPlay and Android Auto upgrade kit.

It will add wireless connectivity to all Mercedes  Vehicles equipped with a central display manufactured 2007-2012 running NTG3.0 and NTG3.5, such as the W221.

Display Compatibility;

All Display Sizes

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 NTG3.0 and NTG3.5 user interface and the standard Mercedes COMAND navigation system 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!
