Pairing a phone with your Mercedes-Benz can enable simple, hands-fee control. By pairing a Bluetooth® enabled smartphone to a vehicle, drivers are able to enjoy all of their technology combined into one user-friendly whole. You will have to make your phone discoverable via Bluetooth ®. Then, by pressing the Sys button and then going to Settings you will be able to activate Bluetooth® in your Mercedes-Benz. By then pressing Tel or choosing Phone on the main menu you will be able to find your individual phone by selecting Connect Dev and then Search for Phone From Vehicle. From there you should be able to follow on-screen directions to enjoy premium compatibility.
For iPhone users, pairing a phone to a Mercedes-Benz vehicle can be straightforward and offer many benefits, thanks to Apple CarPlay™ available in select models. This system links the infotainment system on select Mercedes-Benz vehicles with many of the apps and features of a compatible iPhone. Drivers with a paired phone will be able to make calls, dictate and listen to text messages, stream music, podcasts and audio books, and be able to use their phone's navigation system. All of this functionality is integrated into the vehicle's in-dash display, central controller, and steering-wheel buttons for premium ease-of-use.
With mbrace® Connect (which is standard for five years with the purchase of a new 2016 or later Mercedes-Benz), drivers have unsurpassed access to their vehicle. From the convenience of the Mercedes me app, users of the mbrace® Connect interface are able to remotely lock, un-lock, or start their vehicles. Owners can also send navigation directions directly from their phones to the in-vehicle display and also simply contact their local Mercedes-Benz dealer for repairs and service. Dealerships can also retrieve vehicle diagnostic information. Pairing a phone with your Mercedes-Benz vehicle has never been easier.
