Several functions are combined thematically in the menus.

The display changes when you press one of the buttons on the steering wheel.

For example, the Audio menu has functions for controlling the radio or CD player. You can use a function to call up information or to change the settings for the vehicle.

../../../../global/pictures_mb/symb_info.png

Operation of the audio equipment using the steering wheel buttons and making settings using the AUDIO menu only function as described if Mercedes-Benz audio equipment is installed. If you are using audio equipment from another manufacturer, the described functions may be restricted or not available at all.

You can think of the order of the menus and of the functions within a menu as a circle:

Press the mbsymb5_inv_0056.png or mbsymb5_inv_0055.png button repeatedly to call up the menus in succession.

Press the mbsymb5_inv_002a.png or mbsymb5_inv_0026.png button repeatedly to call up the functions within a menu in succession.

The number of menus depends on the optional equipment installed in your vehicle.

Generic terms

This is what the displays look like when you scroll through the menus.
