2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sport: Ups and Downs of Audio

December 18, 2008


When I listen to my iPod in the Mercedes C300, I choose a play list, hook it up in the glove box, then I can control it on the steering wheel. To advance to the next track I push the down arrow on the left of the steering wheel. It's the opposite in the Cadillac CTS. In the Caddy, you push the up arrow to skip tracks. Either way is fine.

But today I forgot my iPod. To quell my separation anxiety I loaded a CD into the Benz's audio system. But now to advance tracks I need to press the up arrow. What the heck?
