Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual: Route guidance

Notes on route guidance

WARNING Risk of distraction from operating integrated communication equipment while the vehicle is in motion
If you operate communication equipment integrated in the vehicle when driving, you will be distracted from the traffic situation.

This could also cause you to lose control of the vehicle.

  • Only operate this equipment when the traffic situation permits.
  • If you cannot be sure of this, stop the vehicle whilst paying attention to road and traffic conditions and operate the equipment with the vehicle stationary.

You must observe the legal requirements for the country in which you are currently driving when operating the multimedia system.

Route guidance begins once a route has been calculated.

The road and traffic rules and regulations always have priority over multimedia system driving instructions.

The following driving instructions can be used:

  • Navigation announcements
  • Route guidance displays
  • Lane recommendations

If you do not follow the driving instructions or if you leave the calculated route, a new route is calculated automatically.

Driving instructions may differ from the actual road and traffic conditions if:

  • The route is diverted
  • The direction of a one-way street has been changed

For this reason, you must always observe road and traffic rules and regulations during your journey as well as the prevailing traffic conditions.

The route may differ from the ideal route due to the following:

  • Roadworks
  • Incomplete digital map data

Notes on GPS reception

The correct function of the navigation system depends amongst other things on GPS reception.

In certain situations GPS reception can be impaired, defective or even not possible, e.g. in tunnels or in parking garages.

Changing direction overview

Changing direction overview

There are three phases when changing direction:

  • Preparation phase
    If there is enough time between the changes of direction, the multimedia system prepares you for the upcoming change of direction. A navigation announcement is issued, e.g."Prepare to turn right".

    The map appears in full-screen mode.

  • Announcement phase
    The multimedia system announces the upcoming change of direction, e.g. by announcing "Turn right in 300 ft (100 m)".

    The display is split into two parts. The map is displayed on the left; on the right, there is a detailed image of the intersection or a 3D image of the upcoming change of direction.

  • Change-of-direction phase
    The multimedia system announces the imminent change of direction, e.g. by announcing "Now turn right".

    The display is split into two parts.

    The vehicle has successfully changed direction when the light-color bar on the right drops down to 0 feet (0 m) and the current vehicle position symbol has reached the highlighted change-of-direction point.

    When the change of direction is complete, the map appears in full-screen mode.

Changes of direction are also shown in the Instrument Display

Lane recommendations overview

This display appears for multi-lane roads.

If the digital map contains the relevant data, the multimedia system can display lane recommendations for the next two changes of direction.

Lane recommendations overview

  1. Recommended lane
  2. Possible lane
  3. Lanes not recommended

The following lanes are displayed:

  • Recommended lane 1.

    In this lane, you will be able to complete both the next change of direction and the one after that.

  • Possible lane 2.

    In this lane, you will only be able to complete the next change of direction.

  • Lane not recommended 3.

    In this lane, you will not be able to complete the next change of direction without changing lane.

During the change of direction, new lanes may be added.

Lane recommendations can also be displayed in the Instrument Display and in the Head-up Display.

Overview of destination reached

Once the destination is reached, you will see the checkered flag. Route guidance is finished.

When an intermediate destination has been reached, you will see the intermediate destination flag with the number of your intermediate destination. After this, route guidance is continued.

Overview of route guidance to an off-road destination

An off-road destination is within the digital map.

The map contains no roads that lead to the destination.

You can enter geo-coordinates or a three word address for off-road destinations on the map.

Route guidance guides you for as long as possible with navigation announcements and displays on roads that are known to the multimedia system.

Shortly before you reach the last known position on the map, you will hear the "Please follow the direction arrow" announcement. The display shows a direction arrow and the linear distance to the destination.

Overview of route guidance from an off-road location to a destination

Off-road position: the current vehicle position is located within the digital map on roads that are not available.

When route guidance begins the following displays appear:

  • The Road Not Mapped message is shown.
  • A direction arrow showing the linear direction to the POI.

When the vehicle is back on a road known to the multimedia system, route guidance continues as normal.

Overview of off-road status during route guidance

Due to roadworks, for example, there may be differences between the data on the digital map and the actual course of the road. In such cases, the multimedia system will temporarily be unable to locate the vehicle's current position on the digital map. The vehicle is off-road.

When the vehicle is off-road, the following displays are shown:

  • the Road Not Mapped message
  • a direction arrow showing the linear direction to the POI

When the vehicle is back on a road known to the multimedia system, route guidance continues as normal.
