General information
The Infotainment system provides
you with state-of-the-art in-car
infotainment.
Using the FM, AM or DAB radio
functions, you can register a great
number of stations on various
favourites pages.
You can even register music tracks,
telephone numbers, destination
addresses or tone settings on the
favourites pages.
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.
Via the shop application, you may
download additional apps to 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
accessories.
Introduction
Important information on
operation and traffic safety
9 Warning
Drive safely at all times when
using the Infotainment system.
If in doubt, stop the vehicle before
operating the Infotainment
system.
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
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.
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
5
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
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
received, the Infotainment
system displays radio text that
can contain e.g. information on
the current programme.

Traffic Programme (TP)
Radio traffic service stations are RDS
stations that broadcast traffic news. If
the traffic service is switched on, the
function currently active is interrupted
for the duration of the traffic
announcement.
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 available.
As soon as a radio traffic service
station is found, [TP] is highlighted. If
no radio traffic service station is

switched off, alternative frequencies
of the stations are selected without
regard to regional programmes.
Set Region - On or Region - Off.
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
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 can be avoided
by activating DAB to DAB
Linking and/or DAB to 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 best receivable
FM stations. If TP 3 29 is
activated, traffic announcements
of the FM station with the best
reception are issued. Deactivate
TP if you do not wish DAB
reception to be interrupted by FM
traffic announcements.
31
DAB settings

options, activate the radio function
and then select the DAB waveband.
Select MENU in the interaction
selector bar to display the DAB menu.
DAB announcements
Besides their music programmes,
many DAB stations also broadcast
announcements of various
categories. If you activate some or all
categories, the DAB service currently
received is interrupted when an
announcement of these categories is
made.
32
Radio
Select DAB Announcements to
display the DAB categories list.
Select the desired categories. The
categories selected are marked with
9.
Note
DAB announcements can only be

activated.
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 - On or DAB
to DAB Linking - 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 - On or DAB
to FM Linking - Off.
L Band
If L Band is activated, the
Infotainment system receives an
additional frequency range. The
frequencies for L-band comprise
earth and satellite radio (1452 - 1492
MHz).
Set L Band - On or L Band - Off.

Guidance ..................................... 52
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.
39
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 gyro
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.

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.
If there is a traffic problem during
active route guidance, depending on
the pre-settings, a message appears
as to whether the route should be
changed.
TMC traffic information is displayed in
the map display as symbols or as
detailed text on the TMC messages
menu.
To be able to use TMC traffic
information, the system must receive
TMC stations in the relevant region.
The TMC traffic stations can be
selected in the navigation menu

Speech recognition
General information
Embedded speech recognition
General information ..................... 58
Usage .......................................... 60
The embedded 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 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
system functions, the speech
recognition does not start until it has
been activated.
Important information
Language support
● Not all languages available for
the display of the Infotainment
system are also available for the
speech recognition.
● If the display language currently
selected is not supported by the
speech recognition, speech
recognition is not available.
In such a case, you need to select
another language for the display
if you want to control the
Infotainment system via voice
input. To change the display
language, see "Language" in
chapter "System settings" 3 24.
Address input of 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 InfoDisplay to the language of the foreign
country.
Speech recognition
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 24.
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.
● Austria, Germany:
<city> <street> <house number>
● Belgium, France, Great Britain:
●
<house number> <street> <city>
Denmark, Italy, Netherlands,
Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain,
Switzerland, Turkey:
<street> <house number> <city>
Setting up the speech recognition
Several settings and adaptions for the
embedded speech recognition of the
Infotainment system can be
performed.
Press ; and then select the
SETTINGS icon.
Select Voice item to enter the
respective submenu.
59
Confidence Threshold
Depending on the option selected in
the corresponding submenu, the
speech recognition appears more or
less 'confident' in correctly
understanding your commands.
Confirm More: If selected, the system
asks you relatively often to confirm
your commands. Consequently, the
system performs the correct action in
most cases.
Confirm Less: If selected, the system
asks you less often to confirm your
voice inputs. Consequently, the
system might sometimes misinterpret
your commands and not perform the
correct action.
Note
When starting to use the speech
recognition, it may be advantageous
to use the Confirm More setting. As
you get more experienced, i.e., you
get to know how to pronounce your
commands in a way the speech
recognition understands you
correctly, it may be advantageous to
use the Confirm Less setting.

Usually commands can be spoken in
a single command. For example,
"Call David Smith at work", "Play"
followed by the artist or song name,
"Tune to" followed by the radio
waveband and frequency/station
name, or "Find address" followed by
the address e.g. "123 Main Road,
London".
In case of complex commands or
when information is missing, the
system starts a dialogue sequence.
When searching for a "Point of
Interest", only major chains may be
selected by name. Chains are
businesses with at least 20 locations.
For other POIs, say the name of a
category, e.g. "Restaurants",
"Shopping centres", or "Hospitals".
If you say "Phone" or "Phone
commands", the system understands
that a phone call is requested and
responds with relevant questions until
62
Speech recognition
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

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 system is
equipped with a phone portal that
allows for 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
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
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
●
99
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 98 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
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).

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 broadcast
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.

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

Digital audio broadcasting
DAB broadcasts radio stations
digitally.
Radio
Advantages of DAB
●
●
●
●
●
DAB stations are indicated by the
programme name instead of the
broadcasting frequency.
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.
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 best receivable
FM stations. If TP 3 133 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.

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.

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.
