What is the Mercedes-Benz COMAND system?
If you have looked into purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz vehicle in the past few years, you have probably seen a familiar name pop up on a wide range of vehicles. That would be the COMAND system. If you aren’t familiar with the new technologies that have been coming out in vehicles lately, you probably aren’t too familiar systems like COMAND. Well that is OK, because you have come to the right place for answers. Today, we will answer the question, what is the Mercedes-Benz COMAND system?
What Does COMAND Stand For?
COMAND actually stands for Cockpit Management and Data. It is essentially a new multimedia system where you can do everything from make phone calls and send messages, to accessing vehicle diagnostic information. The COMAND system is how you will stay connected to the world around you and also how you will stay connected to your vehicle to see when it needs maintenance and service.
There are several different pieces that go into making up the COMAND system. Everything you will see will be accessed through the display screen. There is also a CD/DVD drive, the actual buttons on the vehicle, and a rotary controller, as well as a touchpad and several USB media ports.
The rotary controller and the touchpad will allow you access the media display screen without actually having to touch the screen or reach too far. This means you will be able to continue to safely operate the vehicle while you flip through the different functions.
What Else is Included With COMAND?
Drivers will also be able to access the vehicle’s navigation system through the COMAND system. This satellite linked navigation system utilizes live traffic information to make sure you get where you need to go as quickly as possible. The mbrace mobile application will also be accessible through this system.
What Vehicles are Equipped with COMAND?
Essentially every vehicle in the Mercedes-Benz lineup has the COMAND system available on one of its trims or as an optional feature. If you would like to learn more about COMAND or check the system out for yourself in person, please get in touch with one of our Loeber Motors’ sales team members.
