One Look Display

Our innovative “One Look” split-screen technology allows the driver to view the navigation map and audio playback information at one glance. This eliminates the need to switch between different applications. The user can switch from regular to One Look view with just the touch of a button. This function is especially useful on long highway trips.

Navigation maps and audio playback information can be displayed by innovative split-screen technology

Parking Assistance Technology

The optional rear-view camera system provides parking safety with cutting-edge camera technology.

The rear-view camera automatically activates when reversing and also mutes the audio so you can hear the parking sensor signals. You not only have a clear view to the rear, you can also see useful distance guides that are programmed to exactly match the V-Class measurements for easier parking. You have a choice of four viewing modes. Multi-view splits the screen so you have a clearer view of both left and right behind the car. Top view is very convenient when backing up to hook up a trailer, enabling you to get within centimetres of the trailer. There’s also a picturein-picture function that shows the regular rear view in a small screen when you’ve selected a special viewing mode.
