How do I switch between the original system and the new MMI system?

On your Mercedes Controller hold the “NAV” or "BACK" Button to flick between the new MMI menu and the original Mercedes system.
 

Will this void my warranty?

On a general note, no, this shouldn't void your warranty as all of our MMI systems are fully reversible meaning you can install and uninstall our products as you wish, without removing, replacing or damaging any of your original vehicle’s components, however there are exceptions on certain cars in which the original manufacturer warranty seals on the radio head unit itself have to be opened to install a PCB poard component. If you really want to make sure, we always advise checking with your vehicle's warranty provider


Can I install this myself?

Yes, you have the option to install this yourself by all means, however we also offer a fitting service, you can take it to one of our approved third party dealer locations around the UK.

Does this need any coding done to it after it’s installed?

No, it doesn’t require any coding at all, our MMI module is designed to be completely plug and play. 

 
PLEASE NOTE: only iPhone’s are compatible with Apple CarPlay and only Android phones are compatible with Android Auto
