WARNING

Operating the integrated information systems and communications equipment in the vehicle while driving will distract you from traffic conditions. You could then lose control of the vehicle. There is a risk of an accident.

Only operate these devices if road traffic conditions permit. If you are unsure about the surrounding conditions, pull over to a safe location and make entries only while the vehicle is stationary.

You must observe the legal requirements for the country in which you are currently driving when operating mobile phones.

Increased levels of electromagnetic radiation could pose a risk to your health and the health of others. Using an exterior aerial takes into account current scientific discussions relating to the possible health hazards that may result from electromagnetic fields. Only have the exterior aerial installed by a qualified specialist workshop.

When using mobile phones and two-way radios, Mercedes-Benz recommends connection to an approved exterior aerial. This is the only way to ensure optimal reception quality in the vehicle and to minimise potential interference between the vehicle electronics and mobile phones or two-way radios.

In Germany, for vehicles without a hands-free system, it is forbidden to use mobile phones while driving or while the engine is running.

Observe the legal requirements in the relevant country.

Mobile phone fittings

General notes

You can choose between two systems that support mobile phones supplied by different manufacturers:

  • mobile phone fitting (networked)[1]

  • mobile phone fitting (no networking)

    A description of the mobile phone fitting (no networking) can be found in the separate supplement.

Both systems include a hands-free system integrated into the vehicle. The microphone for the hands-free system is fitted in the overhead control panel or in the overhead stowage compartment together with the front interior light.

In order to use the hands-free system, you will need a special mobile phone bracket. The Mercedes-Benz range of accessories includes brackets for various mobile phone models.

Mobile phone brackets available from various manufacturers on the open market are not compatible with the Mercedes-Benz telephone system. You can recognise brackets suitable for your mobile phone by the Mercedes Star and by the spare part number B6 on the back.

Detailed instructions for use can be found in the operating instructions for the mobile phone bracket.

The mobile phone battery is charged depending on the charge status and the position of the key in the ignition lock. The mobile phone display indicates the charging status.

The mobile phone is networked with the on-board computer, the respective audio equipment, the loudspeakers and the exterior aerials via contact surface mbsymb6_inv_003a.png on the bracket. This enables you to also operate and display various functions of your mobile phone using the on-board computer.

The mobile phone fitting provided is networked by a fibre-optic cable for communications equipment, e.g. radio or CD changer.
