iPod interface is lousy
By Clayton King on


2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 7A)


I love my C300 Luxury. However, I purchased the multimedia package and iPod interface. I sadly discovered the iPod cannot be controlled using the COMAND system and display on the popup screen. Instead you must use steering wheel controls. For a large music collection, this is completely cumbersome at the least, and it renders the multimedia COMAND controls completely useless. It would be easier to use a traditional patch cable and plug the iPod in to the AUX jack in the glovebox. This is really a bad design, and I would think a car stickering at 40K+ would do a better job. This is my only beef with my new car.

Best Features

Cruise control, overall COMAND function is great - NAV, Sirius radio, 6 CD changer, internal hard drive and memory card, as well as bluetooth phone control are great!

Worst Features

Have the iPod be controlled by the COMAND system, including the scroll wheel.
