@Rydo I don’t think there’s much to say. MBUX has its flaws and it shows a lot of promise. My experience with it is limited, however. The only good I see is that M-B is trying with its infotainment and it isn’t a 100% clone of Tesla’s.
The name MBUX for the new infotainment system signals that the user experience (UX) is to the fore. A unique feature of this system is its ability to learn thanks to artificial intelligence. MBUX can be individualised and adapts to suit the user. It thus creates an emotional connection between the vehicle, driver and passengers. At the same time updates “over the air” are possible. It also heralds a new era at Mercedes me Connectivity.
It is the whatever part that would be difficult. That would include everything else you do via the central infotainment display that is not related to entertainment, namely configuring whatever parameters that the automaker allows to be changed -- HVAC, seat heating and cooling, automatic lights delay settings, suspension settings, etc., etc., etc. ...I'm still waiting for a carmaker to have the courage to just provide a screen that only does CarPlay/Android Auto and leaves the heavy lifting to the phone. Ship apps for iOS/Android that control the radio and whatever as part of the CP/AA interface (and provide physical controls for the HVAC).
Not the S-Class, but Merc just launched a recall on the GLE and GLS where turning on the light-up Benz logo in the grille would cause the power steering to fail. I have so many questions.
The star logo shares an electrical ground connection with some other components -- power steering control unit, wiper motor and left headlight. When the logo's backlighting is switched on, without a good electrical ground connection, there would be stray, unknown voltages in those other circuits.Not the S-Class, but Merc just launched a recall on the GLE and GLS where turning on the light-up Benz logo in the grille would cause the power steering to fail.
