How to check if your W211 needs a software update




To check your current software version, you need to access the engineering menu of your navigation system. To do that, follow these steps:



  • Turn on your ignition and wait for the system to boot up.



  • Press and hold the "SERV" button on your steering wheel until you hear a beep.



  • Press the "OK" button on your steering wheel to confirm.



  • Press the "DOWN" button on your steering wheel until you see the "Engineering Mode" option on the display.



  • Press the "OK" button on your steering wheel to enter the engineering menu.



  • Press the "DOWN" button on your steering wheel until you see the "Software Update" option on the display.



  • Press the "OK" button on your steering wheel to enter the software update menu.



  • Press the "DOWN" button on your steering wheel until you see the "Current Version" option on the display.



  • Press the "OK" button on your steering wheel to view your current software version.



The current software version will be displayed as a series of numbers and letters, such as "W211 589 15 22 00". The first four digits indicate the model of your vehicle, the next three digits indicate the part number of the software update disc, and the last four digits indicate the version number of the software update. For example, if your current software version is "W211 589 15 22 00", it means that you have a W211 model with a software update disc with part number 589 15 22 and a software update version of 00.


To find out the latest software version available for your W211 model, you can visit the official Mercedes-Benz website or contact your local dealer. You can also check online forums or blogs for other W211 owners who have performed the software update and shared their experiences. For example, according to this forum post, the latest software version for W211 models as of June 2023 is "W211 589 15 22 02". This means that if your current software version is lower than this, such as "W211 589 15 22 00" or "W211 589 15 22 01", you need to update your software with W211 589 15 22 00.


If your current software version is already equal to or higher than the latest one, such as "W211 589 15 22 02" or "W211 589 15 22 03", you do not need to update your software with W211 589 15 22 00. However, you should still check regularly for new updates in case there are any improvements or fixes that are relevant to your system.


Some of the symptoms of outdated software that might indicate that you need a software update are:



  • Your navigation system is slow, unresponsive, or freezes frequently.



  • Your navigation system displays errors, warnings, or messages that are unclear or incorrect.



  • Your navigation system does not recognize some roads, addresses, or points of interest.



  • Your navigation system does not support some features or functions that are available in newer models or systems.



  • Your navigation system is incompatible with some devices or accessories that are connected to it.



If you experience any of these symptoms, you should check your current software version and compare it with the latest one. If there is a difference, you should update your software with W211 589 15 22 00 as soon as possible. If there is no difference, you should contact customer support or visit a service center for further assistance.
