General notes

WARNING
Vehicles with HYBRID: ensure that you read the "HYBRID" supplement. You may otherwise fail to recognize dangers.

WARNING
Making alterations to electronic components can cause malfunctions.
Radio, satellite radio, amplifier, DVD changer, navigation module, phone and voice control are networked together. If one component is not functional or if it has been incorrectly removed/replaced, this could impair the operation of other components.
This could seriously jeopardize the operational safety of your vehicle.
We recommend that you always have maintenance work on electronic components carried out at an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center.

WARNING
In order to avoid distraction which could lead to an accident, the driver should enter system settings while the vehicle is at a standstill, and operate the system only when permitted by road, weather and traffic conditions.
Bear in mind that at a speed of just 30 mph (approximately 50 km/h), your car covers a distance of 44 feet (approximately 14 m) every second.
COMAND supplies you with information to help you select your route more easily and guide you conveniently and safely to your destination. For safety reasons, we encourage the driver to stop the vehicle in a safe place before answering or placing a call, or consulting the COMAND screen to read navigational maps, instructions, or downloaded information.

WARNING
While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, especially attention to traffic and street signs, and should utilize the system's audio cues while driving.
The navigation system does not supply any information on stop signs, yield signs, traffic regulations or traffic safety rules. Their observance always remains in the driver's personal responsibility. DVD maps do not cover all areas nor all routes within an area.
