Mercedes E350 CDI W207
Hi there,

I need help and hopes that you guys/ladies will help!

I have a E350 Coupe from 2009.
I've asked to my MB dealer to update the firmware of my Comand NTG to the latest.

The target was to have te possibility to play the music from my iPhone5 via bluetooth.

The problem is that I cannot activate the BT Audio even in the hidden menu... Even if updated!!!

Please help me!

Thanks to you all

I have a 2011 E350 and after following the instructions posted earlier in the thread I was able to connect and stream via Blutooth audio from my iPhone 6. Both phone and Blutooth audio streaming work but I have to reconnect my phone every time I get in the car.

Thanks for your reply, I'm really happy for you.
My problem is still there due to an old software I guess...
And maybe due to a MB dealer who thinks that all the Mercedes around the world are from his father's factory... Even if the car warranty has passed out!

I had the exact same problem you're having, soI took my 2010 E350 to the dealership and paid for the software update (out of warranty). I told the service manager that I hacked the system and that I wanted the bluetooth audio to work, so it needed the software update. They did the update and it fixed the issue! The only thing is now I cannot enter an address into the nav system if I'm driving, but that's not a big deal to me.

Change MB Bluetooth Name

I have three W204 cars in my family & all of the Bluetooth networks have the name MB Bluetooth. I would like to change the names from MB Bluetooth to something unique to each car. I'm hoping that this can be done within the COMAND menus via Engineering Mode. Can anyone confirm this is possible & how to do it?

We use iPhones within the family & there's no option to do that in the iPhone. I think it'll have to be done in the car.

E-class
Any one having trouble bringing up engineering mode in 2016 E class?

I tried End Call + # + 1, and hold it for 10+ seconds, but nothing happens.

I tried enabling a bunch of different things, but nothing seemed to make much of a difference. The coolest thing was probably the Bluetooth Audio for wireless streaming, but unfortunately I can't get it to connect to my iPhone nor my laptop. It seems buggy. If any of you can figure out how to fix it, please let us know.
Hey did you ever figure out how to connect to your iPhone>? I'm having the same problem

Idk guys maybe the 2016 has a new setup. @Konigstiger is probably the only person with a definitive answer. Maybe you could PM him?

It does. Comand was upgraded between 2010 & now. It would be safe to assume access to the Engineering Menu was changed as well.

I figured out how to get into the dealer menu using End call 7+9+# but that's it so far.
