Local Maps for Mercedes?

Postby hoverauto » December 28th, 2020, 7:18 pm

Wondering if anyone in Trinidad can update the gps maps to show local maps on foreign used Mercedes.

And has anyone gotten the Mercedes app to work in Trinidad with foreign used cars?

Becker manufactured Mercedes-Benz head units use Garmin image files for GPS mapping.

If you have one you can download GPS map data converted to the Garmin format from Open Street Maps.

The process is straight forward. There may also still be a few websites that offer the Caribbean region available as a free download in the Garmin format of you want to save the set up time.

Look at the OSM Wiki for more information.
