Coming soon from Mercedes-Benz Accessories…The Media Interface Plus (MIP)! MIP will expand the basic functions of the factory option Media Interface Cable (Option Code 518) in some great new ways. The old cable would allow you to plug in most, but not all, iPods as well as supply an AUX jack for non-iPod audio sources. The new MIP cable will be plug & play providing
- Listening to Pandora Radio via an iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4
- Playing iPod/iPhone audio and video files
- Phone book download to COMAND/audio system
- Streaming audio via a Bluetooth connection A2DP
- Charging mobile phone via a mini-USB adaptor
In the future, there will be a software upgrade that will read aloud and answer e-mails and text messages! Pricing and launch date are not yet available but I will get one as soon as I can and test it out!
