Fusion Nav System Question reg upgrade

We just bought 2017 AS Interstate GT ext. We love it!!

My only disappointment is that the Fusion NAV system is not the “talking” type. By this I mean that I can tell it the address or business I want to Go to and to automatically enters it and “off I go!” SOO MUCH BETTER than all that punching in address numbers, street, city, etc. My BMW has this type Nav system and it is wonderful. It also allows me to sat “Call home” or anyone else and it executes !!

The other night I was watching a web video demo walk-thru for a 2021 AS Interstate and the system I describe above appeared to be installed in it.
Is this an updated Fusion model?
Would I be able to have that installed in my 2017 Van. Any idea of the price?
Thanks so much fir your help and info

I replaced my fusion in my 2018 int with an alpine x308u. They run about $1500. There are less expensive option by Alpine that fit right onto yhe dash. I chose this unit because it had built in gps verses using your cell signal for nav. It also has carplay and is way more functional then the fusion head unit.

The new Sprinters have the Mercedes MBUX system, not the Fusion.

Also if you switch out your GPS to a regular one you will loose the RV features.

I would recommend you just purchase a Garmin RV GPS. it will be much cheaper.

Bought it and had it installed at a local car audio place.
