Introduction
Operating safety
Warning
G
Any alteration of electronic components or
software can cause malfunctions.
Radio, satellite radio, amplifier, CD changer, TV, DVD player, navigation module,
telephone and voice control systems are interconnected. Therefore, if one of the
components is not operational, or has not
been removed/ replaced properly, the
function of other components could be impaired.
Such conditions might seriously impair the
operating safety of your vehicle.
We recommend to have any service work
on electronic components carried out by
an authorized Maybach Studio.
12
Warning
G
Warning
G
In order to avoid distraction which could
lead to an accident, the driver should enter
system settings while the vehicle is at a
standstill, and operate the system only
when road, weather and traffic conditions
permit.
While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior,
especially attention to traffic and street
signs, and should utilize the system's audio
cues while driving.
Bear in mind that at a speed of just 30 mph
(approximately 50 km/ h), your car covers a
distance of 44 feet (approximately 14 m)
every second.
The navigation system does not supply any
information on stop signs, yield signs, traffic regulations or traffic safety rules. This

Tips on creating MP3 CDs
i
CDs, software and hardware for writing audio data to CD are widely available. Therefore, we cannot
guarantee that COMAND will be able
to play every user-written CD.
Problems may be encountered during
playback of user-written CDs with a
storage capacity of more than
700 MB. These CDs do not meet valid
standards as of this printing.
Permissible MP3 CDs
For example, if the first sesion contains
data in audio CD format and the second
session contains data in MP3 format, COMAND will treat the CD as a conventional audio CD.
When creating an MP3 CD, you can organize MP3 tracks into folders. A folder can
also contain additional folders.
A CD may have a maximum of 255 folders in total.
A maximum of 255 tracks are permissible
per folder.
Permissible file systems
The permitted file system is
ISO9669/Joliet for CD-R and CD-RW.
Track names and folder names
Multisession discs
With multisession discs, the content of
the first session determines how COMAND treats the CD.
Per folder a maximum of 1800 characters are available for title and folder
names combined. Exceeding this
number, COMAND cannot display all
titles and folders.
Names must contain at least 1 character.
Names may contain up to fifty characters. If a name exceeds this character
limit, COMAND will not be able to
display it in full.
Track names must have the file extension “mp3”.
A period must appear between the
track name and the extension.
File structure
Mathematically a maximum of 65025
tracks would result. However, this
amount is usually not reached since MP3
requires approx. 1 MB storage per
minute recorded.
In MP3 mode COMAND can read CD-R
and CD-RW CDs.
Please note the following when assigning track and folder names:
When creating an MP3 CD, you can assign names to the MP3 tracks and folders.
COMAND uses these names in MP3mode for the corresponding display.
Example of a correct track name:
Track1.mp3.
Empty folders or folders containing data
other than MP3 tracks will not be displayed by COMAND.
59
Audio - Front Cabin
MP3 operation
If MP3 files are stored in the root directory itself, the root directory also counts as
a folder. COMAND will then display the
root directory name as a folder name.
i
COMAND does not support ID3 tags.
Tips on creating MP3 tracks
Permissible MP3 formats
COMAND supports the MPEG1 audio layer 3 format.
i
In everyday speech, this format has
been replaced by the designation
“MP3”.
Permissible bit and scan rates
60
Fixed and variable bit rates up to
320 kbps
Scan rates from 24 kHz - 48 kHz
i
It is recommended to use MP3 tracks
with a bit rate of 128 kbps or higher
and with a scan rate of 44.1 kHz or
higher. Lower rates may impair quality. This is particularly true if the
Sound function has been activated.
Tips on copyright
The music tracks that you can create for
play back in MP3 mode are generally
copyright-protected under applicable international and national laws.
In many countries, the reproduction of
copyrighted material is not permitted,
even if only for personal use, without the
express prior consent of the copyright
holder.
Please check the current copyright laws

Some jurisdictions prohibit the driver from
using a cellular telephone while driving.
Whether or not prohibited by law, for
safety reasons, the driver should not use
the cellular telephone while the vehicle is
in motion. Stop the vehicle in a safe location before placing or answering a call.
If you nonetheless choose to use the telephone while driving, please use the handsfree device and be sure to pay attention to
the traffic situation at all times. Use the
telephone only1 when permitted by road,
weather, and traffic conditions.
Bear in mind that at a speed of just 30 mph
(approx. 50 km/h), your car covers a distance of 44 feet (approx. 14 m) every second.

G
Never operate radio transmitters requiring
an internal or external antenna (i.e. without being connected to an external antenna) from inside the vehicle while the
engine is running. Doing so could lead to
malfunction of the vehicle's electronic system, possibly causing an accident and personal injury.
Tips on telephone operation
i
Once the cell phone specified for
your Maybach vehicle is inserted into
the cradle in the front cabin, it can be
operated:
using the cell phone itself,
using the COMAND control unit,
using the multifunction steering
wheel, or
using the voice control
Descriptions in this Operator’s Manual presume that the cell phone is inserted into the telephone cradle.
Telephone – Front Cabin
Important notes
i
This operation manual describes operation of the telephone using the
COMAND control unit and the multifunction steering wheel. Unless otherwise specified, the descriptions and
illustrated displays refer to the COMAND control unit.
Operation of the cell phone and voice
control system are explained in separate operation guides.
For safety reasons, the cell telephone
handsets should not be used to place
or receive a call while driving.
If the signal is very weak (display in
the status bar):
Wait until reception improves before
placing a call.
Please read chapter "Telephone" before attempting to operate the telephone feature.
Always drive with extreme caution
when operating the telephone
hands-free.
The telephone cannot, or not yet, be
used in the following situations:
Close the windows and reduce all external noise as much as possible when
using hands-free operation.
A brief disconnection from the mobile network is not a malfunction, as
this can occur when the network
switches areas. The phone automatically attempts to again sign on with a
network.
If the message Enter unlock code is
displayed, enter the unlock code
( page 81). Only then will you be
able to use all the telephone functions.
The telephone is already unlocked,
but it is not yet registered with the
network.
The message NO SERV appears in the
status bar. The telephone automatically attempts to register with a network. If there is no network
available, “911” emergency calls can
NOT be placed.
Make sure that the air vents are not
pointed in the direction of the microphones located in the overhead control panel near the rear view mirror.
Adjust air vents and/or reduce blower
speed if necessary.
!
Radio transmitters, such as a portable
telephone or a CB radio, should be
used inside the vehicle only if they are
connected to a separate external antenna approved by us for use on Maybach vehicles.
You will still be able to make "911"
emergency calls ( page 79) if the
telephone is locked.
If you try to place an outgoing call,
the message Call not possible is

Important notes
Notes about COMAND telephone
features using a Bluetooth® connection
Many of the Maybach approved mobile
phones, cradles and adaptors available
for use in your vehicle utilize Bluetooth®
technology to communicate with each
other and the vehicle. Depending on
your phone brand and model, the number of in-vehicle or on-display COMAND
telephone features supported via Bluetooth® communication, and thus available for your use, may vary.
The descriptions and illustrations in this
section are based on the use of fully compatible Maybach approved mobile
phones and cradles that do not utilize
Bluetooth® technology to communicate
with each other. If your vehicle is
equipped with integrated Bluetooth®
functionality, a Bluetooth® capable mobile phone, headset, Laptop, PDA, etc. is
required to utilize those features.

phones and related accessories please

Safety instructions
Warning
G
For safety reasons, you should only enter a
destination when the vehicle is stationary.
When the vehicle is in motion, a passenger
should enter the destination. Study manual and select route before driving.
Do not watch display screen or operate
keys while the vehicle is in motion - let
voice announcements guide you. Stop at a
safe location before using keys or making
corrections.
Traffic regulations always have priority
over any route recommendations given.
Bear in mind that at a speed of just 30 mph
(approx. 50 km/ h), your car covers a distance of 44 feet (approx. 14 m) every second.
98
The route calculated by COMAND is a recommendation on how to best reach your
selected destination.
During route guidance, you will not receive information on:
Traffic lights,
Stop and yield signs,
Parking or stopping zones,
One-way streets,
Narrow bridges, or
other traffic regulation data.
You should therefore always strictly observe traffic regulations while driving.
Drive carefully and always obey traffic laws
and road signs, even if they contradict
COMAND instructions.
Warning
G
The Navigation DVD module contains a
Class 1 laser product. There is a danger of
invisible laser radiation if the cover is
opened or damaged.
Do not remove the cover. The Navigation
DVD module does not contain any parts
serviceable by the user. For safety reasons,
have any necessary service work performed only by qualified personnel.

Important notes
Loading
Navigation DVD
COMAND calculates the route using data
stored on the navigation DVD.
Only Maybach navigation DVDs should
be used; other DVDs or using CDs will not
work. Using other navigation DVDs or
CDs could cause malfunctions or software damage.
Calculation errors may occur due to
changes in local traffic patterns (e.g.
road works) and/or incomplete data.
Thus the recommended route may deviate from the ideal route. The data stored
on the DVD only reflects local conditions
at the time of DVD production. DVD
maps do not cover all areas nor all routes
within an area.
Loading/ejecting the DVD
The DVD is loaded into (and ejected
from) the navigation module.
The navigation module is located on the
left-hand side of the trunk.
Insert the DVD into the DVD slot 2
face up.
The navigation computer pulls the
DVD in.
Ejecting
1 Ejecting DVDs
2 DVD slot
!
The DVD drive is designed to play
DVDs of IEC 60908 standard. Therefore only DVDs not exceeding a thickness of 1.3 mm can be used.
Thicker DVDs, e.g. DVDs with data
stored on both sides (one side DVD,
the other side Audio data), cannot be
ejected; the drive could be damaged.
Press  until the navigation com-
puter ejects the DVD.
Travelling abroad
The navigation DVD covers the continental U.S., Hawaii and Canada.
Contact your authorized Maybach Studio

Route guidance with GPS
Moving the vehicle a few yards is typically enough to remedy the situation.
i
GPS (Global Positioning System) signals received make it possible to determine the current vehicle position.
Deviations from the actual position
may occur
if the reception of GPS signals is
disturbed e. g. in parking garages
and tunnels
if road conditions are bad
depending on the vehicle’s location
T
Route guidance after vehicle transport
If your vehicle has been transported by a
car, train or ferry, COMAND may require
some time to find its exact position.
COMAND may issue voice announcements not suited to your actual position.

Trip interruption during route
guidance
i
i
The navigation DVD must be loaded

Trip interruption means parking the
vehicle and switching COMAND OFF.
While determining the exact position ,
route guidance is subject to the following restrictions:
COMAND does not output voice announcements.
The display OFF ROAD and an arrow
indicating the direction of the destination appears instead of the detailed navigation displays.
Once the system is correctly repositioned, route guidance continues with
voice announcements and detailed navigation displays.
Trip continuation means trip continuation with COMAND switched ON.
The following instructions have to be followed when interrupting, and later continuing, a trip while route guidance is
activated:
Continuation of the trip within
2 hours after interruption:
The system automatically resumes
route guidance.

Voice announcements
Warning
G
Voice announcements are intended to direct you while driving without diverting
your attention from the road and driving.
Always use this feature instead of consulting the map display for directions. Consulting the map displays for directions may
cause you to divert your attention from
driving and increase the risk of an accident.
After route calculation, the system assists
route guidance using pictorial displays
and voice announcements.

Press .
Route guidance is cancelled. The Navigation main menu appears after a
brief delay.
The digital map may contain areas
that are only partially digitized although they are within a digitized region.
Warning
G
Due to incomplete digitization, the route
shown on the map may differ from the actual road/traffic situation.
If you follow the route shown on the map,
for example, it is possible that you could
drive the wrong way down a one-way
street or that a street cannot be driven on.
When using route guidance in a partially
digitized area, you must therefore be sure
to observe all relevant traffic regulations
and the course of the road.
If the destination is within a partially
digitized area
COMAND guides you through fully digitized areas for as long as possible. Route
guidance is conducted in the usual manner, i.e. with voice announcements and
route guidance displays.
Before the vehicle reaches a partially digitized area, Maybach notifies you of this
with the following announcements:
“Be prepared to enter an area where
turn by turn guidance cannot be provided.”
“In 700 feet you will enter an area
where turn by turn guidance cannot
be provided.”

Route guidance within a partially digitized area
If you start route guidance in this type of
area, you will hear the following announcement: “You are currently in an
area where turn by turn guidance cannot
be provided.”
Route guidance is provided by means of
a direction arrow showing the compass
heading to the destination. COMAND
will not generate automatic voice announcements.
If you try to call up or repeat an announcement manually ( page 120), you
will hear the announcement “You are
currently in an area where turn by turn
guidance cannot be provided.“.
During route guidance, the display is divided. On the right-hand side you will
see the direction arrow showing the
compass heading to the destination.
On the left-hand side of the display you
will see the map with the suggested
route. The suggested route is highlighted blue. However, it may not be possible
to follow the suggested route because,
for example, the road is closed or not
open for car traffic.
If, during route guidance, COMAND
leads you back into a fully digitized area,
route guidance will simply continue in
the usual manner.

Off-road and off-map
Route guidance to an off-road destination
Warning
G
The COMAND navigation system may direct you to off-road routes that your vehicle may not be capable of traversing
through without damaging your tires,
wheels or vehicle. It is the driver’s sole responsibility to determine the suitability of
the route. Off-road routes may be of varying conditions and their appropriateness
for use may be affected by various factors
such as time of day, time of year and immediate weather conditions that cannot be
judged or taken into consideration by the
COMAND system.
COMAND can guide you to destinations
within the area covered by the digital
map, even if a destination is not located
at a road known to the system.
These destinations are shown as off-road
destinations, which you can enter using
the map, for example.
In these cases, COMAND guides you for
as long as possible with voice announcements and displays on roads known to
the system.
Route guidance from an off-road location to a destination
If there is no road available on map at
current position of the car, vehicle is off
road.
COMAND is also able to guide you to a
destination from such a location.
Shortly before you reach the last known
point in the digitized road network, you
will hear the announcement “The destination is nearby. Follow the arrow on the
display”.
At the start of the route guidance, you
will see the Off Road message and a direction arrow. The direction arrow shows
the compass heading to the actual destination.
You will then see an arrow that indicates
the direction to the off-road destination.
When the off-road destination is close to
the road, Area of dest. reached appears in addition below the arrow.
The route is highlighted blue from the
nearest road known to the system.
When you leave the last known point in
the digitized road network, direction arrows showing the compass heading to
the destination guide you. You will also
see the Direction to destination
display.
As soon as the vehicle is back on a road
known to the system, route guidance
continues in the usual way.
125
Navigation – Front Cabin
Route guidance
Route guidance from an off-map location to a destination
If the vehicle position is outside the area
covered by the digital map, then the vehicle is in an off-map location.
COMAND is also able to guide you to a
destination from such a location.
At the start of the route guidance, you
will see the Off Map message and a direction arrow. The direction arrow shows
the compass heading to the actual destination.
The route is highlighted blue from the
nearest road known to the system.
As soon as the vehicle is back on a road
known to the system, route guidance
continues in the usual way.
126
Off-road during route guidance
The road layout may differ from the data
on the digital map, due to road construction measures, for example.
In such cases, the system cannot allocate
the vehicle’s position to the digital map
and the vehicle is therefore in an offroad position.
The Off Road message and an arrow
showing the compass heading to the destination appear on the display.
As soon as the system can allocate the vehicle position’s to the map again, route
guidance continues in the usual way.

The CD drive is designed to play CDs
which correspond to the IEC 60908
standard. Therefore only CDs not exceeding a thickness of 1.3 mm can be
used.
If you insert thicker data carriers, e.g.
ones that have data on both sides
(one side with DVD data, the other
side with audio data), they cannot be
ejected; the drive could be damaged.
1 Armrest
Pull the top of the armrest 1 out and
fold it downward.
Only use CDs which bear the label
shown and that conform to the compact disc digital audio standard (IEC
60908). You can therefore only use
CDs with a maximum thickness of 1.3
mm.
Use of CDs which do not meet this
standard may cause damage to the
CD drive. Do not play single CDs (80
mm) with an adapter.

phones, cradles and adaptors available
for use in your vehicle utilize Bluetooth®
technology to communicate with each
other and the vehicle. Depending on
your phone brand and model, the number of in-vehicle or on-display COMAND
telephone features supported via Bluetooth® communication, and thus available for your use, may vary.
The telephone is already unlocked,
but it is not yet registered with the
network.
The message NO SERV appears in the
status bar. The telephone automatically attempts to register with a network. “911” emergency calls can NOT
be placed if no network is available, .
