TwinCam,


Does your engineering menu look like the one BenzV12 posted at the top of this thread? That is what mine looks like, and I do not know where to go to find the camera. I have searched through it, but have not found it. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!


Thanks,


Gus

Start with your regular command screen not engineering mode. Go to the top and click on system. When that screen comes up, click on settings. The next screen shows a list of items, click on "rear view camera". You will see "activation by R gear". Click to put a check in the box and you are all set!

Unfortunately, that does not come up in my "system" section.

I have a 2014 E550 and one of the settings on the main command page that has audio, navigation, etc. is "system". Clicking on that takes me to a page that has "settings" in the lower right. Sorry this doesn't work on your model. Check you owners manual and see if they have a section on the rear view camera. If not, look in the command manual. Good luck!

I went to mbusa.com and found the Comand Manual for the 2013 C cars in the "Owners" section. It shows the rear view camera on and off is located in "settings" under the "system" section. Make sure you start with the main command page. Do not use "engineering mode". If you have trouble getting out of engineering mode, press the audio button to bring up the main screen. At the top right should be the "SYSTEM" box. Clicking on that should bring up a screen with "SETTINGS" in the lower right. Click on that box and the rear view camera setting will be shown.

Thanks Twincam, but my system / settings menu does not have it. I am assuming it is because the car did not come with a back up camera, so there is not an option in the settings menu (accessed from the command / system page).


That is why I think I have to turn something on in the engineering menu to give me that option in the settings menu.


While in the engineering menu, I did find this menu (see attached picture). I went to the "ExtPlayer" section and found this. Does anyone know what a UCI device is?

Guseco, your right, without a factory installed rear camera there is no need to have a rear camera section under settings. Personally, I don't know why anyone would turn off the camera, anyway. Hope you find a solution!

In my car the engineering menu has a place where you can turn the rear view camera to "Not Installed". I have not tried this setting but I would guess it will remove the camera ON/OFF selection from the System-menu.


This being in the engineering menu would suggest to me that this selection is used for "Not Installed" option for cars that do not have the camera.


It also has three other options: SRVC, DRVM and DRVM-PSC. I guess these are different camera types. Mine is set to SRVC.


This selection is at location:


7 HW Settings


7.7 HU Parameter (3/6)


(20) Rear view camera


Under the (20) Rear view camera are those 4 selection options

When I tried the eng menu it worked. But after reset I had to de-authorise my iPhone and re-authorise and then it was taken up as a bluetooth audio device and now it plays off my music library without any issue.

I hope this chain is still alive.
I need your help, guys! With the help of this chain, I was able to turn on the browser in my 2013 E550. However, when I went to the Settings, I couldn't find USA in the list of countries (as my car is a canadian car). Therefore I am not able to use my iPhone as a modem and access the internet.
Would you advise on how to add US ATT iPhone to the list?
When adding a new provider manually, it asks for Provider, Tel Number, Access Point etc. What should I enter in those fields?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Belarus27 for reply. I was able to find what you sent, but couldn't figure out what to type where. I am attaching a photo of what the screen in comand looks like. Please let me know what should be entered in each of the fields.

Also do you know if iPhone 6 with the latest ios will work?

I hope someone else can help here. In the video, the guy chose automatic from the list and was able to connect. I cannot choose USA from the list of countries (it is not there). Otherwise I would have chosen USA, then ATT from the list and click connect.

My car is 2013 with an updated interface, I think, and I am hoping in this year car the internet with iPhone should be supported.

Anybody can help?

Thanks.

Thanks for this! Just activated the Bluetooth audio so I'll test it out today.

I wonder if I can get COMAND Online to work on an iPhone...
