The multimedia system of the Mercedes EQE under the magnifying glass

Zapping Autonews Land Rover Defender 130 (2022): Eight-seater hybrid variant 100% electric car seen on video The Mercedes EQE is a road sedan that adopts the styling and interior presentation of the large EQS, including the “MBUX 2.0” multimedia system. As standard for the latest generation “Mercedes-Benz User eXperience”, it consists of a 12.8-inch vertical center screen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster facing the driver. Cordless phone cloning via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is included and as an option you can prefer “hyperscreen” only on the sport version EQE AMG 53 4MATIC+. Equipment billed over €8,650 replaced the dashboard cover with a 141cm wide glass surface. The three screens are grouped together. The instrument cluster remains at a diagonal of 12.3 inches, and a third screen is added that faces the passenger of the same size. The one in the center connects between the two for a more square format, 17.7 inches.

They are overlapping. When attached, it appears to float slightly upward, and its aluminum-like contours with rounded corners pay close attention to the finish of this passenger space. The horizontal command bar cut off at the bottom of the screen gives the impression of sensitive keys. They are actually very well integrated physical buttons on the same smooth surface on either side of the hazard warning light actuator. On the left are shortcuts to driving mode selection, access to cameras and parking aids, electric activation and vehicle information pages. On the right is a fingerprint sensor that unlocks the system on startup (a configurable feature) and sound management for the audio system. To complete the main screen, the 100% digital instrument cluster is customizable and can display navigation maps from one of the following: counter or full screen. The display is controlled using a sensor key located at the top of the left branch of the steering wheel. The central keypad is used to select and scroll information using finger scrolling gestures. Intuitive, but longer than a physical wheel to scroll through pages on the onboard computer. The “Home” button on the right allows you to select the display of this screen and the presentation of the heads-up display (if any). The “Back” button on the left will take you directly to the available pages without having to scroll through all the pages. To do this, simply press and hold the center button on the desired page for a few seconds and then confirm the assignment of this shortcut. The principle of touch-sensitive control of the steering wheel used in the instrument is repeated for the center display, but this is done in the upper part of the right steering wheel spoke. Then the “Home” button is placed on the side of the hub and the “Back” button is placed on the rim side of the steering wheel upside down in the left branch. Thanks to this system, almost all menus can be accessed from the center screen without taking your hands off the steering wheel. However, the simplest and fastest is to control it by touching the screen directly. The lower part of the display is reserved for air conditioning for direct and easy adjustment. In the center are permanent “Home” and “Back” keys next to the arrows for selecting audio tracks/radio stations. One click returns to the main menu and scrolls from right to left across 4 pages, with three main function groups (Electric Info, Navigation, Phone, Radio, Media, Applications, Convenience Features, Vehicle Info, Settings General; Android Auto/Apple) CarPlay connection). A clean overview of the navigation map is always displayed above the main function icons in this main menu. This is also another shortcut to GPS. For example, you cannot have navigation and radio on the same page, but the system will keep the previously selected home page, allowing you to switch from GPS to media or other functions in two clicks. The “Home” button drop-down menu contains a “Favorites” page where you can save other functions you can access directly, such as a quick access button to enable or disable key driver assistance systems, and saved destinations. All parameters are grouped together under a dedicated “Settings” menu, but some can also be accessed more specifically through other menus, such as the “Comfort” menu, which combines massage, seat adjustment and ambient lighting functions. The personalization of the driving mode is quickly accessed thanks to a physical “dynamic” shortcut at the bottom of the screen. Modes can be switched via the arrows on either side, activated from the steering wheel or pronounced “Hey Mercedes” and voice commands respond to requests in everyday language. She can close the roof blinds, change the color of the ambient lighting, activate a seat massage if you’re tired, or answer specific questions, but by formula she doesn’t understand every request.

The same goes for the route on the map. Menu Organization 8/10 – Facing the various functions and menus, it takes time to understand how the system works. It performs quickly, especially for common functions. Accessing certain specific settings is more difficult to remember. In particular, it’s a pity that there’s no simpler way to activate or deactivate a feature called ‘Extra-Slow’ mode, which is equivalent to ‘Ramping’ when you take your foot off the brake pedal, which is hidden in the settings menu. The menu would have been more appropriate. We also wanted to be able to split the screen into parts so that we could display two menus at the same time. Readability/Graphics 8.5/10 – Thanks to the OLED screen, the contrast ratio is optimal and the colors are smooth and look good. The large display surface provides a lot of clarity in the distribution of the displayed information. Graphics show finesse. It’s all about achieving perfect performance, but tilted back and exposed to the sun. The matte finish of the panel doesn’t create reflections, but you can’t avoid highlighting your fingerprints. Controls 9/10 – The sensitive keys on the steering wheel are well calibrated, but slower than the physical controls. In particular, the sports steering wheel with AMG Line finish has an aesthetic advantage, and by separating the spokes in two, the ergonomics have been improved so that the navigation keys in the menu are not confused with cruise control, audio or tactile navigation keys. do. There’s also a rather advanced voice command and a well-aligned screen with air conditioning and a quick return button on the always-on display. Photo – Mercedes Efficient as well as complete, this MBUX 2.0 system is one of the best on the market. It’s not always the most intuitive when looking for a specific setup, but once you’ve got the bearings it’s pretty easy to use. The blue theme common to all menus creates an elegant and technical atmosphere. Small flaws are in the details and they don’t interfere with their ability to make handling very enjoyable.
