Features
This telephone system is fully integrated with your Mercedes-Benz audio system and steering wheel switches*. You can
scroll through the first 99 entries in your phone book and access the entire phone number memory; place, receive, and
terminate calls; change volume; and view call status (such as Ready, Dialing, Incoming Call, Call Active, No Service, Redial,
etc.). Because exact phone features are dependent on the particular audio system installed in your vehicle, detailed operation is covered in your audio system manual. Please refer to it.
Notes:
•
In order for your Mercedes-Benz volume controls to work in conjunction with your Motorola phone (to change ringer
volume or adjust call volume), the vehicle must have either the engine running or the ignition key turned clockwise
to the last position before starting the engine.
•
Your phone includes many new features that take additional time to initialize, resulting in increased power up/down
time. Please wait until the phone is completely powered up before using any feature from both the radio and phone
controls.
Finding Information on Phone Features
Your new Mercedes-Benz telephone operates in two modes:
•
Vehicular Mode—when the phone is inserted and snapped into the privacy cradle in the vehicle
•
Portable Mode—when the phone is operating as a stand alone device (NOT inserted and snapped into the privacy
cradle in the vehicle)
Most features of your new Mercedes-Benz telephone are available in both modes.
This guide contains basic information on using your phone in Vehicular Mode to place and receive calls.
* Not available on all models.

Vehicular Mode Operation
When you connect your phone to your Mercedes-Benz vehicle, the phone is ready to operate in Vehicular Mode.
In Vehicular Mode, your phone is connected to many integrated features of your vehicle and its audio system, offering
these advantages:
•
You can use your phone in either Hands Free mode or in privacy mode.
•
Your phone uses your vehicle’s speakers for better sound fidelity in Hands Free mode.
•
Your vehicle charges your phone’s battery when the vehicle is running.
•
When you place or receive a call, your vehicle’s radio, CD, and/or tape player volume is automatically muted so you
can hear the person on the other end.
Before you use your phone in Vehicular Mode, you should familiarize yourself with how this system operates.
Switching into Vehicular Mode
Switch your phone into Vehicular Mode by docking it.
To dock your phone:
Step
1 Angle the phone into the cradle so that the connector on the bottom of the phone engages the connector built into
the cradle.
2 Pivot the top end of the phone down to latch it into place.
Note: If you are using the slim or high performance battery with your phone, you must ensure that the battery insert
is installed correctly. See “Installing the Special Battery Insert” on page 6.
3 To latch the cradle into the holder, close the phone’s flip, and angle the coilcord end of the cradle into the shrouded
end of the holder.
5
Step
4 Pivot the cradle down to securely latch it.
Note: The cradle should never be placed into the holder with the phone’s flip open. Close the flip before securing the
cradle in the holder in order to prevent damage to the phone when the console cover is closed.
Notes:
•
Your phone plays a confirmation beep when docked. Wait for this beep before undocking.
•
While in Vehicular Mode, the phone operates on the vehicle’s integrated cellular antenna.
Caution: Mercedes-Benz recommends keeping the phone docked in the cradle while operating the vehicle. If you
must use the handset for privacy operation, stop the vehicle prior to removing the phone from the cradle.
Installing the Special Battery Insert
The V60 cradle is supplied with a special insert to make it easier to align the phone with the cradle’s embedded connector
when you use certain batteries. You should only install this insert if you are using the slim or high performance battery.
The slim battery is supplied as a standard component in the CDMA V60 kit, while the high performance battery is standard
in the TDMA V60 kit. You should remove the insert when using the optional extra capacity battery.
To install the insert:
Step
1 Align the four tabs on the side of the insert with the corresponding slots in the cradle.
2 Gently push the insert into the slots until it snaps into place.
If you are using the slim battery, the side marked “FOR USE WITH SLIM BATTERY” should face up.
If you are using the high performance battery, the side marked “FOR USE WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE BATTERY” should face up.
3 If you plan to use the extra capacity battery with your phone, remove the insert by gently prying it out with a small
flat screwdriver, exercising care not to mar the side walls of the cradle.
6
When in Vehicular Mode
In Vehicular Mode, the phone turns on automatically each time you turn on the vehicle ignition if the head unit is turned
on.
To turn off the phone, open the flip, and press P. If your ignition is on when you turn your phone off, a flashing battery
icon and Pwr will appear in the display. While in this mode, calls cannot be placed or received. The next time the ignition is
turned on, the phone will turn on. To turn the phone back on, press P again.
If your phone is on for more than five minutes when your vehicle’s ignition is off, the phone automatically turns itself off to
conserve your vehicle’s battery.
Switching Out of Vehicular Mode
To disengage your phone from Vehicular Mode:
Step
Remove the phone from the cradle by pressing the black tab on the top of the cradle.
You can remove the phone with the cradle in or out of the holder.
To remove the cradle from the holder, press the release button on the holder.
Note: If you switch out of Vehicular Mode during a call, the party on the other end will hear a click.

Placing a Call Using Hands Free Operation
Hands Free operation allows you to use the phone while it is docked in the cradle. The phone audio is projected through
your vehicle’s audio system speakers. The Hands Free microphone allows both driver and passenger to engage in the conversation.

other end of the call.
