Mercedes-Benz introduced the Media Interface Plus (MIP) several months ago to give advanced functionality to the iPod/MP3 Media Interface Cable. The part is around $500 and can be purchased from your local Mercedes-Benz dealer.
A few weeks ago a free software update was made available for current MIP owners that allows Blackberry users running OS6 with MAP to have e-mails and texts read aloud by the car and reply with 10 customizable responses. Mercedes-Benz is hoping to expand this capability to other phones/operating systems in the future.
Mercedes-Benz also just released the Video Cable for MIP that allows the playback of video files from iPod/iPhones to the COMAND system or factory installed Rear-Seat Entertainment system. The part number is A001 827 9904 and the MSRP is $30. The Video Cable is compatible with:

My 2011 E350 and I took a roadtrip to Illinois this weekend. It was an extremely comfortable ride and I was very impressed with the fuel economy. Officially rated at 24 miles per gallon on the highway, my E-Class far exceeded that!
This is my trip odometer on the way up (sorry for the blur): 28.0 MPG @ average speed of 68 for 588 miles.and this is on the way home:The final total was 1456 miles at 26.1 MPG! That includes 1300 miles of highway and 156 miles of in town driving. I got close to 500 miles on a single tank before the low fuel indicator lamp was illuminated. I also experienced the Attention Assist notification for the first time. I highly recommend the E-Class for all of you long distance drivers!
