Exclamation 2012 C250 - Electronic System Mods? Other hacks?

1st Post!


I just got a 2012 C250 Coupe. This is my first German car. So far im very impressed. I was wondering if there are any known mods or hacks for the Comand System or for anything else in the car. I used to have a Lexus GS430, and I had modded it to continue showing DVD video even when the car is moving.
These are the types of hacks im interested in. Is there anything like that for the C250?

Thanks!

You need to go to Engineering Mode

I don't know exactly how to, but to start you need to go to Engineering Mode to change settings. To do that hold down these three keys together for 3 to 10 seconds: "hang up" + "#" + "1". I haven't been able to find it but I believe it's somewhere in the HW Settings > HU Settings section. From there I'm guessing you need to change the Region within US but that's just a guess. I'm still looking for it myself.

One note about navigating through the Engineering Mode: Note that there are sometimes 2 or more pages for each section you're in. You can tell because the top will display (1/2) or (1/8) meaning you're viewing 1 of 2 or 1 of 8 pages. Make sure to check all pages to find what you're looking for. To switch pages press the "2" or "8" keys to page up or down.

Can't get it to work. Have you had any luck? I mostly only care about using the navigation when the car is in motion. Anything else would be an added plus but as a realtor with clients following me in their car from house to house, it is crucial for me to be able to enter addresses on the fly.
