General information
The Infotainment system provides
you with state-of-the-art in-car
infotainment.
Using the FM, AM or DAB radio
functions, you may register up to
15 stations.
The CD player will entertain you with
audio CDs and MP3/WMA CDs.
You can connect external data
storage devices to the Infotainment
system as further audio sources;
either via a cable or via Bluetooth®.
The navigation system with dynamic
route planning will reliably guide you
to your destination, and, if desired,
automatically avoid traffic jams or
other traffic problems.
In addition, the Infotainment system is
equipped with a Phone portal that
allows 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 controls on the
steering wheel or via the speech
recognition system.
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

Important information on
operation and traffic safety
9 Warning
Drive safely at all times. Only
operate the Infotainment system if
the traffic conditions allow a safe
usage.
In the interest of safety, it might be
appropriate to stop the vehicle
before operating the Infotainment

from the responsibility for a
correct, vigilant attitude in road
traffic. Always follow the
applicable traffic rules.
9 Warning
In some areas one-way streets
and other roads and entrances
(e.g. pedestrian zones) that you
are not allowed to turn into are not
marked on the map. In such areas
the Infotainment system may
issue a warning that must be
accepted. Here you must pay
particular attention to one-way
streets, roads and entrances that
you are not allowed to drive into.

General information
●
●
With DAB, several radio

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.

●
●
Radio
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-FM
auto tracking, 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 best receivable
FM stations. If Traffic
announcement 3 23 is activated,
traffic announcements of the FM
station with the best reception
are issued. Deactivate Traffic
announcement 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.
In the radio main menu select
OPTIONS, select Radio settings and
then select Announcements.
Activate the desired announcement
categories, e.g., News or Weather.
Different announcement categories
can be selected at the same time.
DAB-FM auto tracking
If this function is activated, the device
switches over to a corresponding FM

Guidance ..................................... 38
General information
The navigation system will reliably
guide you to your destination.
The current traffic situation is taken
into account in the route calculation.
For this purpose, the Infotainment
system receives traffic
announcements in the current
reception area via RDS-TMC.
The navigation system 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
system
The position and movement of the
vehicle are detected by the navigation
system using sensors. The travelled
distance is determined by the
vehicle’s speedometer signal, turning
movements on bends by a sensor.
The position is determined by the
GPS (Global Positioning System)
satellites.
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.
Route guidance is provided by voice
output and an arrow, as well as with
the aid of a multi-colour map display.
Navigation
Important information
TMC traffic information system and
dynamic route guidance
The TMC traffic information system
receives all current traffic information
from TMC radio stations. This
information is included in the
calculation of the overall route. During
this process, the route is planned so
that traffic problems related to preselected criteria are avoided.
To be able to use TMC traffic
information, the system must receive
TMC stations in the relevant region.
Map data
All required map data is stored within
the Infotainment system.

and numeric sequences can be
spoken without a voice 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 performing the
desired actions.
Note
To ensure that conversations inside
the vehicle do not lead to
unintentional triggering of the
41
system functions, the speech
recognition does not start until it has
been activated.

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 to the Infotainment
system as further audio sources,
either via cable or via Bluetooth®.
In addition, the Infotainment allows
comfortable and safe use of your
mobile phone in the vehicle.
You can also operate specific
smartphone applications 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

● 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

Radio
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
broadcast 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 72 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.

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.
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
