    I am the proud new owner of a 2020 GLE 450, I am very happy with it, and it has MBUX. Can anyone tell me how to find the posted speed limit on an road that I happen to be on? Thank you.

      No, it will be only available in the upcoming Mercedes-Benz cars like A-Class or CLA-Class.

      Karr Knutt you don‘t get distracted from this, why would you? Setting these features up will be done when the car is parking and while driving you hardly set anything up there.

    I've had several MB's in the past - including an '18 AMG and the mBrace technologies (Apps like browser, iHeartradio, Yelp, News, etc. ) have been terrible. Even though there is an LTE radio in the car it is ridiculously slow and unusable. Any idea if this technology is faster? It would be nice to actually use a browser that works at least as well as a modern phone.

    • NewGadgets.de
      NewGadgets.de  Tahun Yang lalu

      Maybe the Tesla Infotainment is not that complicated, but it is just pure ugliness :) A huge computerscreen just placed in the middle of the dashboard. The designer was a bit lazy on that one :) And with the Tesla Model 3 it looks even worse.
      I prefer it when it has a bit of a design in it :) And the MBUX is not complicated, I think you just have to try it by yourself.

    This video just shows how utterly ignorant car manufacturers are, I have two words ANDROID AUTO!! That damn system your proudly showing off is way too complicated and will be irrelevant in 2 years! People tend to own a brand new car for 5 years? But most folks replace their phone every year at a fraction of the cost of a new car and I can guarantee, Google knows more about me and will continue to know more about me than any MB. Such an ignorant system, just trying to lock people into buying the next brand new car to get the next cool gadget, Apple's recipe for success!

    • NewGadgets.de
      NewGadgets.de  2 tahun yang lalu

      The old system of Mercedes was not the best, that's why they introduced this one. And I don't know if you don't understand it or you don't want to understand it. If you love Android Auto so much (although it is not that good like you say it is, I use it regularly), just use it!
      The Mercedes Infotainment System allows the user to choose what he wants. If you like the MBUX, use it! If you like Android Auto use it, just plug in your phone and use the system and be happy :) Same for Apple CarPlay. They are both still integrated into this system! Not sure what's so hard to understand :)
      Also streaming is of course supported, as it is on your phone. It seems you didn't even watch the video at all :) It seems that the only person that is still stuck in the past is you, because this new system allows everything you just wrote above.

    • Paul Bradbury

      So this is the first fully up-gradable infotainment system in the world, that will know more about me than Google already does? The first infotainment system that won't be irrelevant in 2 years after Google has come out with far more advanced AI? The first infotainment system that is guaranteed to work with any current or future Apple or Android phone anyone has, regardless of the case size and charging capability? Just because its a Modern infotainment system doesn't mean its good, and comparing the complexity of that system to Android Auto, Android Auto is much, much simpler and now incorporates Google Assistant which I'm rather sure is much more advanced than MB voice assistant that just came out.. Also, the navigation systems in these cars sucks, just because you put a fancy GUI, it likely has the same backup systems that rarely provide directions as accurate as Google can, why the hell are car companies still including their own navigation systems in cars? I took a newly minted E class sedan with the newest tech on a test drive a year ago and it took the entire 20 minute test drive for the dealer to get me directions to a restaurant across the damn street from the dealer! Google provided those same directions w/in 30 seconds... Also by the time most MB cars have these systems in place and people buy their cars, the phones that will provide most of the connectivity these cars rely upon will have progressed far further than this system and it will be irrelevant the moment someone buys it. Also, the guy showed how brilliantly the system can play your music from USB! Who in the hell ever plays their music via USB? Maybe 20 years ago people tried to do this, nowadays it requires you to go to your home computer, login to your Spotify account download all the songs, put them in a folder on your phone or always carry an external hard drive or a USB stick around with you, and make sure to frequently update your songs because most people don't listen to the same music every day for the average car ownership of 5 years.. If it doesn't have streaming capability with Spotify, Pandora or etc.. it is crap and anything other than this, except for possibly the regular radio is damn useless.. The best infotainment system in my opinion would provide information about the car and its settings with a way to tune in the radio and have Android Auto for everything else, with full color navigation maps on the center screen and street view capability in the vehicle dash.

      Looks like you don't have a clue how this industry works :) This system is upgradable (maybe you didn't hear it in the video), so if there are updates the system will get the latest version. A feature that old infotainment systems didn't have. It also works with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, so I'm not even sure why you are complaining because this infotainment system is the most modern out in the market right now and maybe also for a while.There is also nothing complicated about this system, did you even watch that video? It is super easy and intuitive.

      azalru plus the mercedes mbux doesnt lag like the one in the video . the one in the video maybe because it’s a prototype one and not the one fitted to the car .

    So where is the CD Player?? They offer 5k sound systems, and want you to feed it with compressed mp3s.

      I live out in the country and drive a backroad daily route about 35mph and outside noise is minimal, but it's actually quite easy to hear flaws on lower bit rate songs. But I am a Audio Nut, and expect a lot from my Car Stereo. MB sure has a nice sounding system, but back to my initial complaint of lack of HiRes File Support or SACD compatibility, their system could be much better. The Acura MDX I drove for years had better audio support than my GLE43.

    • Denis

      Hard to believe that you would hear a clear difference between compressend and uncompressed audio in a car. You mainly focus on driving and also the sound is distorted by the driving noises.

      FLAC files aren't supported in most if not all stock head units. Only a few aftermarket head units support it also. My 50K Infiniti doesn't support it and it fucking blows. I dont get why car manufacturers are so far behind in technology but a $100 android phone can play FLAC.

    • Rob
      Rob 2 tahun yang lalu +1

      Flac files are Not supported in my '17 GLE 43. Also any wav file that is above 24/48k is not readable by the system. This is unacceptable IMO.

    Dont forget what apple did !!! They gave us an update and this update made our iphones slower much slower , so we go out and buy a new one.
    Iam sure mercedes & co will after 5 years push an background update and this will make your car ,malfunction , slower ,louder whatever so you get buy a new one

    This looks like Audi's virtual cockpit, which was introduced 4 years ago. Unless there are free over the air updates with new features (like Tesla does it) and great integration with Android Auto/Car Play, I would not buy it...

      Actually, Mercedes released the S class in May 2013. with the dual screen setup, and also theirs version of "virtual cockpit", 1.5 years before Audis virtual cockpit.
      And the S class had digital(screen) instrument cluster as standard for 13 years now(from 2005.) on the W221 and W222 S class.

    • NewGadgets.de
      NewGadgets.de  2 tahun yang lalu +5

      I'm pretty sure he mentioned over the air updates. And just because Audi introduced it 4 years ago means Mercedes cannot make it too? Btw: Also 4 years ago Mercedes introduced this display combination in the s class: idclips.com/video/R-wLIyF4PTc/video.html

      It's waaay better than their old system, but in my opinion, it is not as good as Audi MMI oder BMW iDrive. Let me explain why:
      1) I like that it is fully customizable (which MMI and iDrive also are), but in my opinion it is overloaded with graphics and symbols. It's just not as easy to understand as the other systems.
      2) I HATE the fact, that it is touchscreen. I cant express it enough! I have a touchscreen in my car and it is just sooo unpractical. You can't do anything while driving, because even the slightest bump in the road will make you touch the wrong spot. Also, it takes the least engineering effort to make a touchscreen system. In my opinion it is just lazy. MMI and iDrive have very clever control elements which make them extremely easy to use without ever having to touch the display.
