SPLITVIEW

SPLITVIEW allows you to simultaneously use different COMAND functions on the frontpassenger side and on the driver's side.

Depending on the viewing angle of the display (from the driver's seat or from the frontpassenger seat), you will see two different displays.

For example, the "Navi" function can be used from the driver's side while the "Video" function is used on the front-passenger side.

Use the remote control to operate COMAND from the front-passenger side with SPLITVIEW.

Please bear the following in mind

Х Your vehicle may be equipped with SPLITVIEW, depending on its date of production. The use of SPLITVIEW is currently not permitted in the following states: AL, AZ, CO, IL, LA, MA, MD, NH, PA, VA, VT, WA, WI, and WV or in the Canadian provinces of Manitoba, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.
It is the driver's responsibility to observe ALL regional legally prescribed regulations.
If your vehicle is registered in a state or province in which SPLITVIEW is not approved, this function must be deactivated. Please contact an authorized specialist dealer to check whether SPLITVIEW is approved in your state or province.
Х Volume adjustment for the cordless headphones can be carried out on the headphones. Before putting on the headphones, make sure that the volume has not been set too high.
Х The remote control can be used for the volume adjustment of corded headphones.
Х You can only use media from the driver's and front-passenger sides separately if the media are from different sources. Example: on the driver's side, an audio CD is being played by the DVD changer. This means that on the front-passenger side, the DVD changer cannot be used to play a different disc type, for instance a video DVD.
However, other media can be used at the same time on the front-passenger side, including radio, memory card, MUSIC REGISTER, Media Interface, USB or AUX.
Х If you use the same medium on both sides, settings for this medium can be carried out from either side.
Х There must be intervisibility between the headphones and the display so that COMAND can optimally transmit music and speech via the infrared signal on the frontpassenger's headphones. For this reason, please also observe that the headphones have left and right sides, and use them correctly.
Х Only entertainment functions, i.e. audio and video, can be used separately via SPLITVIEW.
Х The multifunction steering wheel can only be used for functions which relate to the driver's side.
