Operation – COMAND and telephone
Warning!
Operating safety
Warning!
In order to avoid distraction which could lead to an
accident, system settings should be entered with the
vehicle at standstill and system should be operated
by the driver only when traffic conditions permit.
Bear in mind that at a speed of just 30 mph (approximately 50 km/h), your car is covering a distance of
50 feet (approximately 14 m) every second.
COMAND supplies you with information to help you
select your route more easily and guides you conveniently and safely to your destination. For safety’s sake,
you should not use some of the functions, such as
entering the destination, unless your vehicle is stationary (electronic key in the ignition at position 1).
Any alterations made to electronic components
and the software can cause malfunctions.
The radio, amplifier, CD changer, telephone and
Voice recognition system are interconnected.
Therefore, when one of the components is
defective or has not been removed/replaced
properly this may impair the function of other
components.
These malfunctions might seriously impair the
operating safety of your vehicle.
We recommend that you have any service work or
alternations on electronic components done in an
authorized Mercedes-Benz Center.
The navigation system does not supply any information on stop signs, yield signs, traffic regulations or
traffic safety rules. This always remains your
personal responsibility when you drive.
1 Observe all legal requirements.

Before you use the navigation system
The route calculated by COMAND is a recommendation
on how to best reach your selected destination.
Warning!
During route guidance, you will not receive any
information on traffic lights, stop or yield signs,
no parking or no stopping zones, one-way streets,
narrow bridges and similar traffic regulation data.
Please always strictly observe traffic regulations
while driving. Traffic regulations always have
priority over any route recommendations given.
Study manual and select route before driving, – do
not watch display screen or operate buttons while
the vehicle is in motion – let voice instructions
guide you. – Stop at a safe location before using
buttons or making corrections. Drive carefully and
always obey traffic laws and road signs even if
they contradict system instructions.
For safety’s sake you should only enter destinations when the vehicle is stationary. When the
vehicle is in motion, a passenger should enter the
destination.
08-NAVI1-203-US.pm5
130
Warning!
The CD reader 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 CD reader does not
contain any parts which can be serviced by the
user. For safety reasons, have any service work
which may be necessary performed only by
qualified personnel.
The data stored on the original navigation CD is used
for route calculation. Using other navigation CDs might
lead to malfunctions.
Because of changes in local traffic patterns and/or
incomplete data, errors in calculation may occur.
The recommended trip may deviate in this case from
the available traffic pattern, because the data material
stored on the CD represent the local conditions at the
time the CD was produced.
07.06.2001, 16:49 Uhr
Index
The current vehicle position cannot be displayed
exactly in every case. Satellite reception conditions,
road conditions, the condition of the vehicle, etc. could
cause deviations from the actual situation. In this case
enter the current vehicle position manually, page 213.
Travelling abroad:
If you intend to travel through different regions or
abroad you will need the respective CD. Contact your
Mercedes-Benz Center or the Client Assistance Center
at 1-800-FOR-MERCedes (1-800-367-6372) for the
available CDs.
When the vehicle has been transported by a car train or
a ferry, COMAND will require some time to find its
exact position. In these cases it is often sufficient to
move the vehicle a few yards to receive a complete
route recommendation.
Remove the actual Navigation CD when you leave a
region or cross the border and insert the Navigation CD
for the region or country you are now in.
The reception of GPS signals can be unreliable or at
times even impossible:
CD drive:
The CD drive is able to read navigation CDs as well as
audio CDs. If there is an audio CD in the CD drive, the
following message will appear when you press
:
“No CD, please insert NAVI CD”.
• When driving between tall buildings, in parking
garages or tunnels, when obstructed by large
vehicles and similar structures
• During electrical storms or very heavy rains
Remove the audio CD and insert a navigation CD,
page 44.
• Satellites may be switched off for checking or repair
Changing tires:
We recommend that you have any tire changes done by
a Mercedes-Benz Center. Because COMAND operates
using measurements taken by wheel revolutions, the
tire new size must be entered when the tires are
changed, see calibration on page 205.

Beginning route guidance
During the trip, along with the visual information –
symbol or map displays – COMAND also provides all of
the necessary spoken route information via voice output.
Warning!
P82.85-3037-26
After the route has been calculated, the symbol display
will appear. If you now are at the turn-off point, you
will also hear a voice telling you, e.g. “Please turn
right”.
You can select screen display during the journey:
• Symbol display
Voice output is intended to direct you while driving
without diverting your attention from the road and
driving. Please always use this feature instead of
consulting the screen symbols or map for
directions while driving which may cause you to
divert your attention from driving which can
increase your risk of accident.
Spoken recommendations are given:
• when route guidance begins,
• after the route has been calculated,
• before and during a change in the driving direction,
• Switch between symbol and map display, page 180
• when the destination or a way point has been
reached.
• Route guidance with a mixture of map and symbol
display, page 181
