Upgraded the screen finally!

My 8" screen just came in the mail today that I purchased on eBay for $498 with shipping. Its from Taiwan. It came with its own navigation but I just stuck with the Becker unit I already have. It was just unscrew and plug n play took only 5 mins. Everything works. Phone, back up cam, navigation, etc.

Very nice. Greasy fingers or not, is the touchscreen calibrated? That's the one thing in nervous about as my wife swaps her RX400h for her soon to be GLA 45.

Any details on part number, etc?

the seller has 2 different ones, one is for the ntg 4.5
Mercedes Benz New A B CLA GLA G NTG4 5 8inch HD Capacitive Screen GPS Camera AV | eBay

The other one is for the newer ntg 5.0
Mercedes Benz A B CLA GLA G GLE NTG5 Upgrade 8inch with GPS Camera Input AV | eBay

All the know is the touch isn't that responsive because these are the basic units with no mirroring. The touch doesn't work at all with the default MB software. The custom navigation works but I haven't played with it yet.
I think these are units from carnavitech. The better units are from navitech from korea. But unfortunately those guys didnt respond to my email for purchase so I just took the chance with these Taiwanese ones from ebay.

Upgraded the screen finally!

Just ordered myself one of these with AirPlay Mirroring and a front camera. Tried contacting the company in Asia but they weren't very responsive and didn't seem legit. Found a place in Australia that seems much better. I should be getting it soon.
