General information
The Infotainment system provides
you with state-of-the-art in-car
infotainment.
Using radio tuner functions, you may
register up to 25 stations on five
favourites pages.
You can connect external data
storage devices, e.g. iPod, USB
devices, or other auxiliary devices to
the Infotainment system as further
audio sources; either via cable or via
Bluetooth.
In addition, the Infotainment system is
equipped with a phone portal that
allows for comfortable and safe use of
your mobile phone in the vehicle.
Using the phone projection function,
you can operate specific applications
on your smartphone via the
Infotainment system.
Optionally, the Infotainment system
can be operated using the touch
screen and buttons on the control
panel, the controls on the steering
wheel, or - if provided by your mobile
phone - via speech recognition.
The well-thought-out design of the
control elements, the touch screen
and the clear displays enable you to
control the system easily and
intuitively.
Note
This manual describes all options
and features available for the
various Infotainment systems.
Certain descriptions, including those
for display and menu functions, may
not apply to your vehicle due to
model variant, country
specifications, special equipment or
accessories.
Important information on
operation and traffic safety
9 Warning
The Infotainment system must be
used so that the vehicle can be
driven safely at all times. If in
doubt, stop the vehicle and
operate the Infotainment system
while the vehicle is stationary.
Introduction
Radio reception
Radio reception may be disrupted by
static, noise, distortion or loss of
reception due to:
● changes in distance from the
transmitter
● multipath reception due to
reflection
● shadowing
Theft-deterrent feature
The Infotainment system is equipped
with an electronic security system for
the purpose of theft deterrence.
The Infotainment system therefore
functions only in your vehicle and is
worthless to a thief.

Digital audio broadcasting
DAB broadcasts radio stations
digitally.
DAB stations are indicated by the
programme name instead of the
broadcasting frequency.
General information
●
●
With DAB, several radio
programmes (services) can be
broadcasted on a single
ensemble.
Besides high-quality digital audio
services, DAB is also able to
transmit programme-associated
●
●
data and a multitude of other data
services including travel and
traffic information.
As long as a given DAB receiver
can pick up the signal sent out by
a broadcasting station (even if
the signal is very weak), sound
reproduction is ensured.
In the event of poor reception, the
volume is reduced automatically
to avoid the output of
disagreeable noises.
If the DAB signal is too weak to
be picked up by the receiver,
reception is interrupted
completely. This incident can be
avoided by activating DAB-DAB
Linking and/or DAB-FM Linking
in the DAB menu (see below).
Interference caused by stations
that are on nearby frequencies (a
phenomenon that is typical of AM
and FM reception) does not
occur with DAB.
If the DAB signal is reflected by
natural obstacles or buildings,
the reception quality of DAB is
●
improved, whereas AM or FM
reception is considerably
impaired in such cases.
When DAB reception is enabled,
the FM tuner of the Infotainment
system remains active in the
background and continually
searches for the FM stations with
the best reception. If TP 3 23 is
activated, traffic announcements
of the FM station with the best
reception are issued. Deactivate
TP if DAB reception should not
be interrupted by FM traffic
announcements.
DAB Announcements
Besides their music programmes, a
lot of DAB stations also broadcast
announcements of various
categories. If you activate some or all
categories, the currently received
DAB service is interrupted when an
announcement of these categories is
made.
Select Menu in the bottom line of the
DAB radio main menu to open the
corresponding waveband-specific
submenu.
Radio
Scroll through the list and select DAB
Announcements to display a list of the
categories available.
Activate all or just the desired
announcement categories. Different
announcement categories can be
selected at the same time.
DAB-DAB Linking
If this function is activated, the device
switches over to the same service
(programme) on another DAB
ensemble (if available) when the DAB
signal is too weak to be picked up by
the receiver.
Select Menu in the bottom line of the
DAB radio main menu to open the
corresponding waveband-specific
submenu.
Scroll through the list and activate or
deactivate DAB-DAB Linking.
DAB-FM Linking
If this function is activated, the device
switches over to a corresponding FM
station of the active DAB service (if
available) when the DAB signal is too
weak to be picked up by the receiver.
Scroll through the list and activate or
deactivate DAB-FM Linking.
L Band
With this function, you may define
which DAB wavebands are to be
received by the Infotainment system.

To configure the RDS settings
options, activate the radio function
and then select the FM waveband.
Press MENU to display the FM
waveband menu.
Advantages of RDS
●
●
●
●
On the display, the programme
name of the station appears
instead of its frequency.
During a station search the
Infotainment system tunes in to
RDS stations only.
The Infotainment system always
tunes into the best receivable
broadcasting frequency of the set
station by means of AF
(alternative frequency).
Depending on the station that is
received, the Infotainment
system displays radio text that
can contain e.g. information on
the current programme.
RDS
Set RDS to On or Off.
Note
If RDS is set to Off, RDS functions
are not available.
Traffic Programme
Radio traffic service stations are RDS
stations that broadcast traffic news. If
the traffic service is switched on, the
currently active function is interrupted
for the duration of the traffic
announcement.
Activate or deactivate Traffic Program
(TP).
If the radio traffic service is activated,
[TP] is shown in the top line of all main
menus. If the current station or media
played is not a radio traffic service
station, [ ] is displayed and a search
is started automatically for the next
radio traffic service station. As soon
as a radio traffic service station is
found, [TP] is highlighted. If no radio
traffic service station is found, [ ]
remains on the screen.
If a traffic announcement is
broadcasted on the respective radio
traffic service station, a message is
displayed.
To interrupt the announcement and
return to the function previously
activated, dismiss the alert.
Region
Sometimes RDS stations broadcast
regionally different programmes on
different frequencies.
Set Region to On or Off.
If regionalisation is switched on,
alternative frequencies with the same
regional programmes are selected
where necessary.
If regionalisation is switched off,
alternative frequencies of the stations
are selected without regard to
regional programmes.
Radio
Digital audio broadcasting
DAB broadcasts radio stations
digitally.
Advantages of DAB
●
●
●
●
●
DAB stations are indicated by the
programme name instead of the
broadcasting frequency.
With DAB, several radio
programmes (services) can be
broadcasted on a single
frequency (ensemble).
Besides high-quality digital audio
services, DAB is also able to
transmit programme-associated
data and a multitude of other data
services including travel and
traffic information.
As long as a given DAB receiver
can pick up the signal sent out by
a broadcasting station (even if
the signal is very weak), sound
reproduction is ensured.
In the event of poor reception, the
volume is reduced automatically
to avoid the output of
disagreeable noises.
●
●
●
If the DAB signal is too weak to
be picked up by the receiver,
reception is interrupted
completely. This can be avoided
by activating DAB to DAB
Linking and/or DAB to FM
Linking in the DAB option menu
(see below).
Interference caused by stations
that are on nearby frequencies (a
phenomenon that is typical of AM
and FM reception) does not
occur with DAB.
If the DAB signal is reflected by
natural obstacles or buildings,
the reception quality of DAB is
improved, whereas AM or FM
reception is considerably
impaired in such cases.
When DAB reception is enabled,
the FM tuner of the Infotainment
system remains active in the
background and continually
searches for the FM stations with
the best reception. If TP 3 62 is
activated, traffic announcements
of the FM station with the best
reception are issued. Deactivate
63
TP if DAB reception should not
be interrupted by FM traffic
announcements.
DAB settings
To configure the DAB settings
options, activate the radio function
and then select the DAB waveband.
Press MENU to display the DAB
waveband menu.
DAB Announcements
Besides their music programmes, a
lot of DAB stations also broadcast
announcements of various
categories. If you activate some or all
categories, the currently received
DAB service is interrupted when an
announcement of these categories is
made.
Select DAB Announcements to
display the DAB categories list.
Select the desired categories. The
selected categories are marked with
9.
Note
DAB announcements can only be
received if the DAB waveband is
activated.
64
Radio
DAB to DAB Linking
If this function is activated, the device
switches over to the same service
(programme) on another DAB
ensemble (if available) when the DAB
signal is too weak to be picked up by
the receiver.
Set DAB to DAB Linking to On or Off.
DAB to FM Linking
If this function is activated, the device
switches over to a corresponding FM
station of the active DAB service (if
available) when the DAB signal is too
weak to be picked up by the receiver.
Set DAB to FM Linking to On or Off.
L Band
If L Band is activated, the
Infotainment system receives an
additional frequency range (1452 1492 MHz).
Set L-Band to On or Off.

Installation instructions and
operating guidelines
The vehicle specific installation
instructions and the operating
guidelines of the mobile phone and
hands-free manufacturer must be
observed when installing and
operating a mobile telephone. Failure
to do so could invalidate the vehicle
type approval (EU directive 95/54/
EC).
Recommendations for fault-free
operation:
● The exterior antenna needs to be
professionally installed to obtain
the maximum range possible.
● Maximum transmission power:
10 watts.
● The mobile phone needs to be
installed in a suitable spot.
Consider relevant note in the
Owner's manual, chapter Airbag
system.
75
Seek advice on predetermined
installation points for the external
antenna or equipment holder and
ways of using devices with a
transmission power exceeding
10 watts.
Use of a hands-free attachment
without external antenna with mobile
telephone standards GSM
900/1800/1900 and UMTS is only
permitted if the maximum
transmission power of the mobile
telephone is 2 watts for GSM 900 or
1 watt for the other types.
For reasons of safety, do not use the
phone while driving. Even use of a
hands-free set can be a distraction
while driving.
9 Warning
Operation of radio equipment and
mobile telephones which fail to
meet above mentioned mobile
telephone standards is only
permitted using an antenna
located outside of the vehicle.
