    you can just pop in a updated Garmin SD card or if you have a 2014 model the Becker module can be unplugged/hooked up to the computer and updated for a $100. For command i believe you have to pay the stealerships.

    I updated mine myself for free from the website. Just typed in garmin Mercedes 2016 update into google, found a program from the Mercedes website to update the map. Downloaded the program to my computer, popped in my card into the computer and it updated my 2015 map to 2016. New map looks better and seems to run faster.

    Do you need a specific Garmin SD card? Or just any blank SD card?

    Interestingly, I found this website :

    MB | HERE

    It indicates Canadian MB cars get free complimentary 3 tear map updates , just bring it into the dealership.

    Only US cars , MY2015 models, get free 3 year complimentary map updates on the COMMAND NAV at the dealership, when they are available.

    The navigation is on the Garmin SD card that is inserted in the slot under your radio. All you do is pop it out and put it in your computer to update using Mercedes Benz download manager. It will update your card then you put back on your car. 2016 maps seem so much faster and improved than my 2015 after update. I did by my Garmin SD card on eBay but I don't think that matters.
