Cellular users can call, text, browse the Internet, shop, stream video and more right from their phones.

Instructions

    Blue-Tooth Technology

  1. 1

    Determine whether or not your cell phone has blue-tooth capabilities. You can find out by asking the sales representative or looking in the owner's manual. Turn your blue-tooth function on, by following the specific directions for your particular cell phone.

  2. 2

    Verify your particular Mercedes has blue-tooth, by contacting your local Mercedes dealer. Not all Mercedes models have blue-tooth technology. Depending on the year, model and trim level you may or may not have this feature.

  3. 3

    Turn your Mercedes' blue-tooth technology on, if you have this feature. Both the cell phone and vehicle will connect together at this time. All calls will go through the speakers of your Mercedes. If you are listening to music and the phone begins to ring, the music will subside, and you will hear the ringing through the speakers. Once you answer the phone, you will be able to talk hands-free.

    Auxiliary Connection

  1. 1

    Verify your particular Mercedes has an auxiliary port. Most of the time the auxiliary port is marked as "AUX" and is located near the stereo controls. Again, not all Mercedes models come with this feature.

  2. 2

    Purchase an auxiliary cable compatible with your particular phone. For example, if you have an iPhone, ask the sales representative to show you the cable which allows you to link your phone into the AUX port in your Mercedes. These cables are usually around £9 at stores such as Best Buy.

  3. 3

    Insert one end of the AUX cable into the phone and the other end into the AUX port in your Mercedes. Once the phone is connected, you will be able to make calls as usual but talk hands-free and listen to music from your phone through your car stereo. According to Naked Cell Phone, using an auxiliary cable provides static-free sound because of the direct cord connection to your stereo, providing the best sound quality.
