There are various Audio and COMAND APS systems available in the new ML (W164) and the GL which is based on the same chassis.

Units differ between  countries, with the COMAND-APS systems being completely different - even map disks won't work between the units. The US unit has an optional, retrofittable, navigation unit and are made by Apline. The European COMAND units all have navigation but can not play MP3 and are made by Becker.

Mercedes regularly "replace" a given part number with a new one, the latest ones are lower down the list below. Sometimes more than one "current" part number is given in the MB catalogue.
