Operating the Multi-Purpose Display on the Instrument Panel

On the multi-purpose display, you can view information relating to the relevant vehicle equipment, operate the audio source (radio, CD, iPod, etc.), check the oil level, check the tire pressure or operate the navigation system. You can also modify different vehicle settings in the "Vehicle" menu.

It is not possible to describe all details of the functions in this Owner's Manual. The examples clearly demonstrate the functional principle and clarify the menu structure.

Operating On-Board Systems While Driving

Setting or operating the on-board computer, radio, navigation system, telephone or other equipment when driving could distract you from the traffic. You could lose control of the vehicle.

  • Operate the equipment while driving only if the traffic situation allows you to do so safely.
  • Carry out any complicated operating or setting procedures only when the vehicle is stationary.
