I just bought a 2014 Mercedes Benz C250 with Comand. It has the multimedia package. When I connect my iPhone 7 with the USB wire it says it can't read USB device. It has the older 30 pin iPhone wire.

You will need to shell out $60 for a Comand lightning cable. Call the local MB dealer.

When I connect it it says it doesn't recognize it.

Thank you AggieWSO. Would the "Apple MD823ZM/A Lightning-to-30 Pin Adapter" work?

It would work to charge but I would not trust it to stream my music. Welcome to Mercedes ownership! The admission is worth the price. :)

If you do get it, try it out while you are at the dealership to make sure it's what you need.

I have used the USB plug in my eclass. Trust me, Bluetooth is better... and frankly less flakey.
I will completely agree with you. I own a 16 C-450 and the USB plug works but the Bluetooth quality is way better and always works for me. Never had an issue!!!
