Does anyone know if MY 2012 comes with Mbrace 1 or 2? Mbrace 2 is standard on MY 2013. Thanks!

It's been mentioned there may be an upgrade for '12s available in the future - not sure if that is correct.

SA post mbrace2 training over the summer said Hughes won't put MBRACE2 in MY12 b/c needs a router & other stuff that was not designed into the car. So even IF u got an in car router it won't work. They had been telling folks b4 that it would possibly work. U can also call MBRACE if u like & they'll let u know more about it. IF SA was wrong please post. Thx

Absolutely positively no way to upgrade mBrace to mBrace 2.

On the road feedback so far mBrace 2 is over rated when it comes to online connectivity thru the head unit - just online app's web page connectivity just plain too damn slooow regardless of area.

However some of the "upgraded" smartphone connectivity features avail now are OK - more smartphone connectivity app's supposedly in development.

mBrace 2 built in owners manual is OK - but then again you could download pdf Owners Manual to your Smartphone or iPad/tablet etc.

The better upgrade is 2013 mBrace 2 the main/center screen and instrument cluster screen resolution has been upgraded, and that is a hardware upgrade.

Least used great feature for all W166 ML's is ripping all your CD's to a USB stick at home and using USB connector to have them on tap, some of the "shorty" USB or "skinny" USB sticks are great for this.

Keep the beat !
