DAB digital radio (optional)
The digital radio (DAB) receives terrestrial digital radio stations via a roof aerial. This gives the user better reception quality, a larger choice of stations and more precise information. Switching between analogue and digital reception is automatic, according to signal strength. The DAB tuner supports not only DAB signals but also the DAB+ and DMB standards.
Digital radio (DAB) is received via an additional roof aerial. As the digital broadcast areas are still being developed, however, the digital signal is not yet available in some regions. In this case, the tuner fades out the radio signal and automatically switches to the appropriate FM frequency until DAB reception is available again. The COMAND radio menu allows manual changing from digital mode to analogue mode.
Convenience Telephony (optional)
All you need for convenience telephony is the Mercedes-Benz head unit with screen, a compatible mobile phone and a cradle to connect your phone to the exterior aerial via a fixed interface in the centre console.
The integrated Bluetooth® interface allows wireless interaction with a compatible mobile phone. The functions of your phone can be accessed via the screen. Incoming text messages can also be displayed here. And if you want to make a call, you can select your contact safely and intuitively using the control unit.
Media Interface (optional)
The Media Interface with consumer cable kit is a universal interface in the centre console used to connect mobile audio/video devices while you’re on the road. You can comfortably access a USB stick, for example, or your iPod® using the vehicle’s control and display units.
COMAND Online multimedia system (optional)
