Mercedes Comand Online Test

Mercedes Comand Online Test

Without Facebook, Google and co, today no carmaker more sends its premium class on the road. We have tested the brave new world of service at the Mercedes system comand online.

It’s too tempting: fast times while driving checked the Facebook News, after a restaurant Googled, flew over the news or check the traffic situation. The permanent availability of the Internet it has become accustomed so much, that in the car the handle belongs to the Smartphone for many everyday. This is not a trivial offence: the risk of a peace officer is to be caught, while low – to crash, however, big. Because the gimmick with the phone distracts dangerous from the traffic – even if the Smartphone is well-formed in a bracket.

Manufacturer suspect business model

Everyone does it, even though you can’t – but this smells like a good business model. And indeed: more and more car manufacturers take advantage of the opportunity to break away advertising by the competitors with the popular Internet services like Facebook, Google or Web radio integration into their vehicles. That you can use it to create real added value, Proven already the new infotainment systems from Audi and BMW – they also showed that you can safely use Internet services while driving without greater distraction thanks to reduced, cut on the onboard monitor graphics and simple operation via controller.

Comand now with online connection

There also Daimler wants to be no slouch – and although the Swabians in terms of Infotainment to date hit a rather more conservative way, it is now completely forward with online with the new Infotainment System comand. 3070 euros the complete system for the c-class; for this there is a HDD Navigation, a Bluetooth hands-free kit with audio streaming, an SD card reader, integrated 10 gigabytes of memory for music, voice control, a USB / iPod interface and three years free map updates. Quite incidentally: the initial radio audio 20 CD monitor, Bluetooth and USB interface is standard – a positive surprise and a fine train of the otherwise so greedy Swabia.

The facilities of the comand system is so complete, like also the the menu interface design and operation with the conveniently in the front of the armrest of remote controller – the hand falls almost alone on the control button. One must always much tilt, turn and press, but after a short acclimatization handling manages a very loosely.

When looking at the Navigation Department, there are long faces for the first time. Especially the map graphic is dusted on: textures reminiscent of early computer games, the streets stretch like thin threads across the screen. There also will not help here and there appears a 3-D attractions – in this setting, they seem rather out of place. Guidance and routing work for this perfectly – no wishes remain open except for a data transport via the Internet; This comand online is still on the inexact FM system TMC Pro.

The Internet functions are accessible via the globe in the menu bar. A Bluetooth DUN capable phone or Smartphone must be coupled with the system, which then the online connection is made. Thus, most smartphones lack DUN profile remain sidelined. You can while using the phone menu quickly between multiple paired phones back and forth – that selected device is up-to-date for the hands-free system but generally mix for online access, can’t.

Too much locked while driving

Functions are the Google search, weather, a Facebook client and a browser for viewing traditional websites, which should be called the best in the mobile version. A text-to-speech function or RSS feeds such as when BMW we couldn’t find, there is also free rechargeable apps (yet). Because all content via the Internet connection will be replayed from the start screen, Mercedes could change this but in the short term. Disadvantage: Because everything has to be loaded before the applications to the part are painfully slow – in spite of the BlackBerry in the test car with UMTS.

But still something bothers and causes that you almost hardly ever used the functions after the first try out in everyday life: in terms of safety, it has meant Mercedes too well. Web pages are basically locked while driving, as well – and even you can take Google search Facebook messages only during the short traffic lights stop. Besides weather information to retrieve and change the status of the Facebook almost nothing is feasible when rolling car.

Security or no, there is also no Internet access much in the comand system, which you can read while driving, as SMS – there should be a few reduced Facebook messages or news bites not in weight. Given the competition from Audi and BMW allows this, and shows that it works. Already slow cars of this class due to distance radar in the rush hour traffic independently up to the stop down – why these functions do not connect?

In terms of Internet has Mercedes comand online so still optimization potential. And who doesn’t need all the multimedia functions, which can save a lot of money with the Becker GPS that we present on the next page.
