General information
The Infotainment system provides
you with state-of-the-art in-car
infotainment.
The radio can easily be used by
registering a large number of FM, AM
and DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting)
radio stations with the 1...6 preset
buttons.
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.
Using the controls and menus of the
Infotainment system, you can operate
approved smartphone applications.
In addition, the Infotainment system is
equipped with a phone application
that allows for comfortable and safe
use of your mobile phone in the
vehicle.
Optionally, the Infotainment system
can be operated using the instrument
panel controls, the controls on the
steering wheel or the speech
recognition function.
The well-thought-out design of the
control elements 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
Introduction
doubt, stop the vehicle and
operate the Infotainment system
while the vehicle is stationary.
9 Warning
The usage of the navigation
system does not release the driver
from the responsibility for a
correct, vigilant attitude in road
traffic. The related traffic
regulations must always be
followed.
Only make entries (e.g.
addresses) with the vehicle
stationary.
If a navigation instruction
contradicts traffic regulations, the
traffic regulations always apply.
9 Warning
Areas such as one-way streets
and pedestrian zones are not
marked on the navigation system
map. In such areas, the system
may issue a warning that must be
accepted. Therefore, pay
particular attention to one-way
streets and other roads and
entrances that must not be driven
into.
Radio reception
Radio reception may be disrupted by
static, noise, distortion or loss of
reception due to:
■ changes in distance from the
transmitter,
■ multi-path 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
Digital audio broadcasting (DAB) is
an innovative and universal
broadcast system.
General information
■ 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.
■ There is no fading (weakening of
the sound) that is typical of AM or
FM reception. The DAB signal is
reproduced at a constant volume.
■ 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 too weak to be
picked up by the receiver, the
system switches over to the same
programme on another DAB or FM
station.
■ 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
27
background and continually
searches for the best receivable FM
stations. If TP 3 25 is activated,
traffic announcements of the FM
station which is currently best
received are issued. Deactivate TP,
if DAB reception should not be
interrupted by FM traffic
announcements.
DAB announcements
Besides their music programmes, lots
of DAB stations also broadcast
announcements of various
categories.
While being in the DAB main menu,
press the multifunction knob to open
the DAB menu and then select
Announcements.
If you activate some or all categories,
the currently received DAB service is
interrupted when an announcement
of these categories is made.
Activate the desired categories.

Usage .......................................... 37
Destination input .......................... 41
Guidance ..................................... 49
General information
The navigation application will reliably
guide you to your destination without
the need to read maps.
The current traffic situation is taken
into account in the route calculation.
For this reason, the Infotainment
system receives traffic
announcements in the current
reception area via RDS-TMC.
The navigation application cannot,
however, take into account traffic
incidents, traffic regulations changed
at short notice and hazards or
problems that arise suddenly (e.g.
road works).
Caution
The usage of the navigation
system does not release the driver
from the responsibility for a
correct, vigilant attitude in road
traffic. The relevant traffic
regulations must always be
followed. If a navigation instruction
contradicts traffic regulations, the
traffic regulations always apply.
Functioning of the navigation
application
The position and movement of the
vehicle are detected by the navigation
application using sensors. The
travelled distance is determined by
the vehicle's speedometer signal and
turning movements on bends by a
gyro sensor. The position is
determined by the GPS satellites
(Global Positioning System).
By comparing the sensor signals with
the digital maps, it is possible to
determine the position with an
accuracy of approx. 10 metres.
The system will also work with poor
GPS reception, however, the
accuracy of the determination of the
position will be reduced.
After the entry of the destination
address or point of interest (nearest
petrol station, hotel, etc.) the route is
calculated from the current location to
the destination selected.
Navigation
Route guidance is provided by voice
commands and a direction arrow, as
well as with the aid of a multi-colour

Speech recognition
Speech recognition
General information
Embedded speech recognition
General information ..................... 54
Usage .......................................... 55
The speech recognition of the
Infotainment system enables you to
operate various functions of the
Infotainment system via voice input. It
recognises commands and numeric
sequences independently of the
relevant speaker. The commands
and numeric sequences can be
spoken without a pause between the
individual words.
In the event of incorrect operation or
commands, the speech recognition
gives visual and/or acoustic feedback
and requests you to re-enter the
desired command. Apart from this,
the speech recognition
acknowledges important commands
and will enquire if necessary.
In general, there are different ways to
speak commands for completing the
tasks. Most of them, except
destination entry and voice keypad,
can be completed in a single
command.
If the action takes more than one
command to be performed, proceed
as follows:
In the first command, you indicate the
type of action to be performed, e.g.
"Navigation destination entry". The
system replies with prompts that lead
you through a dialogue for entering
the necessary information. For
example, if a destination for route
guidance is needed, say "Navigation"
or "Destination entry".
Note
To ensure that conversations inside
the vehicle do not lead to
unintentional triggering of the
system functions, the speech
recognition does not start until it has
been activated.
Language support
■ Not all languages available for the
display of the Infotainment system
are also available for the speech
recognition.
■ If the currently selected display
language is not supported by the
speech recognition, speech
recognition is not available.
Speech recognition
In such a case you need to select
another language for the display if
you want to control the Infotainment
system via voice input. Changing
the display language, see
"Language" in chapter "System
settings" 3 19.
Address input for destinations in
foreign countries
In case you want to enter the address
of a destination located in a foreign
country via voice input, you need to
change the language of the
Infotainment display to the language
of the foreign country.
E.g. if the display is currently set to
English and you want to enter the
name of a city located in France, you
need to change the display language
to French.
Exceptions: If you want to enter
addresses in Belgium, you may
optionally change the display
language to French or Dutch. For
addresses in Switzerland you may
optionally change the display
language to French, German, or
Italian.
For changing the display language,
see "Language" in chapter "System
settings" 3 19.
Input order for destination addresses
The order in which the parts of an
address need to be entered using the
speech recognition system is
dependent on the country where the
destination is located.
An example for the respective input
order is given out by the system.
Voice pass-thru application
The voice pass-thru application of the
Infotainment system allows access to
the speech recognition commands on
your smartphone. See your
smartphone manufacturer's user
guide to find out whether your
smartphone supports this feature.
55
Usage
Embedded speech recognition
Activating speech recognition
Note
Speech recognition is not available
during an active phone call.
Press the w button on the right side of
the steering wheel.
The audio system mutes, the w
symbol on the display is highlighted,
and a voice output message prompts
you to say a command.
As soon as the speech recognition is
ready for voice input, a beep is heard.
You can now say a voice command to
directly initiate a system function
(e.g. playing a radio station), or to
start a dialogue sequence with
several dialogue steps (e.g. entering
a destination address), see
"Operation via speech commands"
further below.
56
Speech recognition
After a dialogue sequence is finished,
the speech recognition is deactivated
automatically. To initiate another
dialogue sequence, you must activate
the speech recognition again.
Adjusting the volume of voice
prompts
Press the w or ─ buttons on the right
side of the steering wheel.
Interrupting a voice prompt
As an experienced user, you can
interrupt a voice prompt by briefly
pressing the w button on the steering
wheel.
A beep is heard immediately, and a
command can be stated without
having to wait.
Cancelling a dialogue sequence
There are several possibilities to
cancel a dialogue sequence and to
deactivate the speech recognition:
■ Say "Cancel" or "Exit".
■ Press the n button on the right
side of the steering wheel.
In the following situations a dialogue
sequence is automatically cancelled:
■ If you do not say any commands for
some time (by default you are
prompted three times to say a
command).
■ If you say commands that are not
recognised by the system (by
default you are prompted three
times to say a correct command).
Operation via speech commands
The speech recognition can
understand commands that are either
naturally stated in sentence form, or
direct commands stating the
application and the task.
For best results:
■ Listen for the voice prompt and wait
for the beep before saying a
command or replying.
■ Say "Help" if you want to listen
again to the help prompt for the
current dialogue step.
■ The voice prompt can be
interrupted by pressing the w button
again. If you wish to directly speak
your command, press the w button
twice.
■ Wait for the beep and then speak
the command naturally. In most
cases, recognition rates will be
higher if pauses are kept to a
minimum. Use short and direct
commands.
Usually phone and audio commands
can be spoken in a single command.
For example, "Call David Smith at
work", "Play" followed by the artist or
song name, or "Tune to" followed by
the radio frequency and the
waveband.
Navigation destinations, however,
are too complex for a single
command. First, state "Navigation"
and then, e.g. "Address" or "Point of
Interest". The system responds with
requesting more details.
After saying "Point of Interest", only
major chains may be selected by
name. Chains are businesses with at
Speech recognition
least 20 locations. For other POIs,
say the name of a category, e.g.
"Restaurants", "Shopping centres", or
"Hospitals".
Direct commands are easier
understood by the system, e.g. "Call
01234567".
If you say "Phone", the system
understands that a phone call is
requested and responds with
respective questions until enough
details are gathered. If the phone
number has been saved with a name
and a place, the direct command
should include both, for example "Call
David Smith at work"
Selecting list items
When a list is displayed, a voice
prompt asks to confirm or select an
item from that list. A list item may be
manually selected, or by speaking the
line number of the item.
The list on a speech recognition
screen functions the same as a list on
other screens. Manually scrolling the
list on a screen during a speech
recognition session suspends the
current speech recognition event and
plays a prompt like "Make your
selection from the list using the
manual controls, or press the back
button on the faceplate to try again".
If no manual selection is made within
15 seconds, the speech recognition
session terminates, you are prompted
with a message, and the former
screen is redisplayed.
The "Back" command
To return to the previous dialogue
step, alternatively: say "Back", or
press the BACK button on the
instrument panel.
The "Help" command
After saying "Help", the help prompt
for the current dialogue step is read
aloud.
To interrupt the help prompt, press
the w button again. A beep is heard.
You may say a command.

Installation instructions and
operating guidelines
The vehicle specific installation
instructions and the operating
guidelines of the mobile phone and
handsfree 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:
■ Professionally installed exterior
antenna to obtain the maximum
range possible,
■ Maximum transmission power
10 watts,
■ Installation of the phone in a
suitable spot, consider relevant
Note in the Owner's Manual,
chapter Airbag system.
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 handsfree 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
handsfree 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.
Caution
Mobile telephones and radio
equipment may lead to
malfunctions in the vehicle
electronics when operated inside
the vehicle with no exterior
antenna, unless the above
mentioned regulations are
observed.

General information
The Infotainment system provides
you with state-of-the-art in-car
infotainment.
For the AM, FM and DAB wavebands
the radio is equipped with twelve
automatically assignable channel
presets. Furthermore, various
channels can be allocated manually
(waveband-independent).
The integrated audio player will
entertain you with audio CDs and
MP3/WMA CDs.
Furthermore, you can connect
external data storage devices, e.g.
iPod, MP3 player or USB stick, or a
portable CD player to the
Infotainment system as further audio
sources.
The digital sound processor provides
you with several preset equalizer
modes for sound optimisation.
Optionally, the Infotainment system
can be operated using controls on the
steering wheel or via the speech
recognition system.
In addition the Infotainment system
can be equipped with a mobile phone
portal.
The well-thought-out design of the
control elements, the clear displays
and a large multifunction knob 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
Introduction
doubt, stop the vehicle and
operate the Infotainment system
while the vehicle is stationary.
Radio reception
Radio reception may be disrupted by
static, noise, distortion or loss of
reception due to
■ changes in distance from the
transmitter,
■ multi-path 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.

Radio data system (RDS)
RDS is a service of FM stations that
considerably facilitates the finding of
the desired station and its fault-free
reception.
Advantages of RDS
■ On the display the programme
name of the set 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,
for example, information about the
current programme.
Configuring RDS
To open the menu for the RDS
configuration:
Press the CONFIG button.
CD 400 / CD 400plus: Select Radio
settings and then RDS options.
CD 300: Select Audio settings and
then RDS options.
TA volume
The volume of the traffic
announcements (TA) can be preset
3 89.
Switching RDS on and off
Set the option RDS to On or Off.
Note
If RDS is switched off, it will be
automatically switched on again
when a radio station is changed (by
search function or preset button).
Traffic announcement (TA)
To switch the TA function on or off
permanently:
Radio
Set the option Traffic announcement
(TA) to On or Off.
Switching regionalization on and off
(RDS must be activated for
regionalization.)
At certain times some RDS stations
broadcast regionally different
programmes on different frequencies.
Set the option Regional (REG) to On
or Off.
If regionalization is switched on, only
alternative frequencies (AF) with the
same regional programmes are
selected.
If regionalization is switched off,
alternative frequencies of the stations
are selected without regard to
regional programmes.
RDS-scrolling text
Some RDS stations hide the
programme name in the display line
in order to display additional
information.
To prevent additional information
being displayed:
Set RDS-Text scroll freeze to On.
Radio text:
If RDS and reception of an RDS
station are activated, information
about the programme that is currently
receivable and about the music track
currently playing are displayed below
the programme name.
To show or hide the information:
Set the option Radio text: to On or Off.
Radio traffic service
(TP = Traffic Programme)
Radio traffic service stations are RDS
stations that broadcast traffic news.
Switching the radio traffic service on
and off
To switch the traffic announcement
standby facility of the Infotainment
system on and off:
Press the TP button.
■ If the radio traffic service is
switched on, [ ] is displayed in the
radio main menu.
■ Only radio traffic service stations
are received.
97
■ If the current station is not a radio
traffic service station, a search is
started automatically for the next
radio traffic service station.
■ If a radio traffic service station has
been found, [TP] is displayed in the
radio main menu.
■ Traffic announcements are played
at the preset TA volume 3 89.
■ If the radio traffic service is
switched on, CD/MP3 replay is
interrupted for the duration of the
traffic announcement.

traffic announcements even if the
station you have set does not
broadcast its own radio traffic service.
If such a station is set, it is displayed
in black as for radio traffic service
stations TP.
Digital audio broadcasting
Digital audio broadcasting (DAB) is
an innovative and universal
broadcast system.
DAB stations are indicated by the
programme name instead of the
broadcasting frequency.
General information
■ With DAB, several radio
programmes (services) can be
broadcast 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.
■ There is no fading (weakening of
the sound) that is typical of AM or
FM reception. The DAB signal is
reproduced at a constant volume.
■ 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 Auto ensemble linking
and/or Auto linking DAB-FM in the
DAB settings menu.
■ Interference caused by stations
that are on nearby frequencies (a
phenomenon that is typical of AM
and FM reception) does not occur
in connection 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 best receivable FM
stations. If TP 3 96 is activated,
Radio
traffic announcements of the FM
station which is currently best
receivable are issued. Deactivate
TP, if you do not wish DAB
reception to be interrupted by FM
traffic announcements.
Configuring DAB
Press the CONFIG button.
Select Radio settings and then DAB
settings.
The following options are available in
the configuration menu:
■ Auto ensemble linking: with this
function activated, the device
switches over to the same service
(programme) on another DAB
ensemble (frequency, if available)
when the DAB signal is too weak to
be picked up by the receiver.
■ Auto linking DAB-FM: with this
function 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.
■ Dynamic audio adaption: with this
function activated, the dynamic
range of the DAB signal is reduced.
That means the level of the loud
sounds is reduced, but not the level
of the quiet sounds. Therefore the
volume of the Infotainment system
99
can be raised to a point where the
quiet sounds are audible, without
the loud sounds being too loud.
■ Frequency band: after selection of
this option it can be defined which
DAB wavebands are to be received
by the Infotainment system.

Speech recognition
Speech recognition
General information ................... 107
Phone control ............................ 108
General information
The speech recognition of the
Infotainment system enables you to
operate the phone portal via voice
input. It recognises commands and
numeric sequences independently of
the relevant speaker. The commands
and numeric sequences can be
spoken without a voice pause
between the individual words.
You can save telephone numbers
assigning a name of your choice
(voice tag). Using these names, you
can later set up a telephone
connection.
In the event of incorrect operation or
commands the speech recognition
gives you visual and/or acoustic
feedback and requests you to reenter the desired command. Apart
from this, the speech recognition
acknowledges important commands
and will enquire if necessary.
To ensure that conversations inside
the vehicle do not lead to
unintentional triggering of system
107
functions, the speech recognition
does not start until it has been
activated.
Important notes on language
support
■ Not all languages available for the
display of the Infotainment system
are also available for the speech
recognition.
■ If the currently selected language
for the display is not supported by
the speech recognition, you need to
enter the voice commands in
English.
To be able to enter voice
commands in English, you first
need to activate the phone main
menu by pressing the PHONE
button on the Infotainment system,
and then activate the speech
recognition of the phone portal by
pressing button w on the steering
wheel.

■ "Yes": a suitable action is triggered
depending on the context.
■ "No": a suitable action is triggered
depending on the context.
Entering a telephone number
After the command "Dial" the speech
recognition requests input of a
number.
The telephone number must be
spoken in your normal voice without
any artificial pauses between the
individual numbers.
Recognition works best if a pause of
at least half a second is made after
every three to five digits. The
Infotainment system then repeats the
numbers recognised.
Speech recognition
You can then enter further numbers
or the following commands:
■ "Dial": the inputs are accepted.
■ "Delete": the number last entered or
the block of numbers last entered is
deleted.
■ "Plus": a preceding "+" is entered
for a call abroad.
■ "Verify": the inputs are repeated by
the voice output.
■ "Asterisk": An asterisk "*" is
entered.
■ "Hash": A hash "#" is entered.
■ "Help"
■ "Cancel"
The maximum length of the telephone
number entered is 25 digits.
To be able to make a call abroad you
can say the word "Plus" (+) at the
beginning of your number. The plus
allows you to call from any country
without knowing the prefix for calls
made abroad in that country. Then
say the required country code.
Example of a dialogue
User: "Dial"
Voice output: "Please, say the
number to dial"
