  • On the right side of the steering wheel there is a Voice Control button, so if
  • you press once you can use voice commands, for example: "Telephone". But what
  • will happen if instead of pressing once - you press and hold? Stay tuned!
  • The features, I'm about to show you
  • you can find in most Mercedes-Benz vehicles over the past ten years
  • today I'm going to show you the second part of this video, but don't tell anyone!
  • feature number eight: "Dual voice control". 79% of people did not know about it. So if
  • we press voice control button once we can use command for example "telephone" or
  • maybe
  • "navigation", or let's say "radio"
  • now if I press and hold I can talk to my cell phone instead of talking to a car
  • "call Aaron Backingham", now my phone will be answering not my car "call Aaron Backingham"
  • sure: work or mobile? work! Since I can talk to my cell phone now from my
  • car I can ask Google any question and my phone will answer using car speakers
  • when is the next Kings game? The season has ended, but the Kings will open next
  • season with a game against the Sharks on October 5th at 7:30 p.m. this will work
  • as long as your phone is connected via Bluetooth. Feature number seven: SIRIUS
  • weather 80% of people did not know about it! Let's move our mouse forward to
  • highlight the top task bar, if you look on the top there is a task bar and you
  • see the "telephone" so we have to move to a telephone
  • let's roll it now we have a phone now we need to scroll out of the phone menu and
  • we'll go into SIRIUS weather, and let's hit enter and you can see weather this is
  • for Los Angeles Metro you can see for three hours you can change for five days
  • as you can see in LA this feature is useless because the sun is shining all
  • the time
  • you can also change the position: for example ski area search, for different
  • areas you can do preset or you can just go to the map and you can zoom in
  • anywhere in the world you like and you will know the weather instantly. Feature
  • number six: "trunk deadlock", 81 percent of people did not know
  • in order to get inside the trunk you have to either open it or you have to
  • fold rear seats and to release rear seats you can only from inside the trunk
  • you cannot release it from inside the car you have to open the trunk and then
  • you can release left side and you can also release the right side and then you
  • can fold the rear seats, but what if you go to a car wash or for example if you
  • want to give you car to someone to drive, but want to block access to a trunk
  • how would you accomplish that? It's actually very simple
  • let's open the glove compartment on the on the right front passenger side and
  • let's look inside if you look on the top left side of the inside of this
  • compartment you will see a lock and unlock for the trunk, so let's lock it. Now your
  • trunk is locked. So inside your key there is a valet key - it's built right there so
  • if you take your valet key out that's how you take it out and once you lock,
  • you can actually keep it to yourself so you can give the key to anybody to
  • drive your car but valet key always keep with you - don't give it to anybody
  • now our trunk is deadlocked right now but anybody can unlock it, so we're going
  • to use valet key to lock glove compartment so nobody can open glove
  • compartment right now and obviously nobody yet can get to the trunk right
  • now because it's locked inside the glove compartment and you cannot fold rear
  • seats the only way to fold them is from inside the trunk which is locked, anyone
  • can drive your car now but the trunk is inaccessible
  • feature number five: "navigation dialog trick", 82% of people did not know. You can
  • confuse navigation by giving it too much information let me show you example
  • enter destination! the address please? 2 1 7 5 5 Ventura Boulevard Woodland Hills
  • California 9 1 6 3 5
  • sixth Street Ripon house number 5 - 1 4 1 2 1 91 unavailable, do you want to
  • select another house number or do you want to start route guidance, cancel! As
  • you can see I gave full address to navigation and it was overwhelming to digest,
  • it just messed up everything! so the trick is to give as little information
  • as possible and make navigation curious enough to clarify your questions by ways
  • of talking back to you that's how we reverse who's asking in who's answering
  • question. Instead of giving a full address I'm just gonna provide only zip
  • code enter zip code! the zip code in single digits please? 9 1 6 0 4! the
  • line number please? one! entry accepted, do you want to enter a street? yes! same town?
  • yes! please say a California Street name. Laurel Canyon Boulevard. The line
  • number please? one! number one accepted
  • Laurel Canyon Boulevard do you want to enter a house number? yes! the house
  • number please? I'll try missing number - 5522, house number 5522
  • unavailable, do you want to select another house number or do you want to
  • start route guidance? here's something different
  • enter intersection! the intersecting Street please?
  • Ventura Boulevard! Ventura Boulevard accepted, do you want to start route
  • guidance? yes! starting route guidance the route is being calculated please proceed
  • to the highlighted route. So instead of giving lots of information always just
  • give little bits of info this will be easier for navigation to digest. Cancel
  • guidance! are you sure you want to cancel route guidance? yes! canceling route
  • guidance. feature number four: "emergency unlock and start", only 16% of people knew
  • what will happen if the battery inside your smart key dies? you will not be able
  • to open your car and you're not gonna be able to start it the good thing there is
  • a way to open the door and start your car even if your key has a dead battery
  • you don't have to call anyone you can do it yourself first you have to release
  • the valet key so if your key is dead obviously you're not gonna be able to
  • open the door. I don't know who came up with this really bright idea but right
  • now this this little plastic bad boy is the only obstacle standing in between
  • you and actually getting inside the car! some models you don't need to remove
  • anything but some models like this one you do
  • once you remove this plastic cap you can manually unlock the door and it will
  • actually set off alarm then you are not going to be able to start the car
  • because your car will not recognize your smart key since it has dead battery
  • therefore you gotta remove the push start button and just start your car
  • manually you can start your car manually even if your smart key has dead battery
  • you can still start the car. and once you get home make sure to replace your
  • battery in your smart key we have separate video the link is below
  • feature number three: "Dual an extendable Sun Visor", only 15% new
  • I was really surprised based on our survey that a lot of people so many
  • people did not know they have dual Sun visor, this feature is actually optional
  • so not everybody have it but let's take a look so if you open Sun Visor
  • it blocks a lot of Sun from the front but right now I have a lot of Sun angle
  • on the left side so let's open it right now I cover it a little bit but still
  • lots of sunshine so if your car is equipped with dual Sun Visor there is a
  • second one right here so now you close front end on the side now it looks much
  • better but still I have a lot of sunlight coming on the Left so if you
  • look on this side one with Sun Visor let's close up if you see there is a
  • extendable in the hitch inside so you can move it in and out and you can
  • extend as much as you want you can extend as much as you need to cover
  • basically the sunshine now it looks much better
  • and let's close it up
  • feature number two: "Points of interest", not whole lot of people new! Here I just
  • want to show you how to ask to go to the points of interest instead of giving a
  • full address, nearest gas station
  • the line number please - number two accepted do you want to start route
  • guidance yes starting route guidance the route is
  • being calculated please proceed to the highlighted route cancel route guidance
  • are you sure you want to cancel route guidance? yes
  • canceling route guidance
  • nearest ATM! the line number please?
  • number five number five accepted do you want to start route
  • guidance no cancel, nearest coffee shop

  • number please Wow there is lots of them one number one accepted do you want to
  • start route guidance yes starting route guidance
  • number one feature in the world: "Adaptive voice control", you have to watch
  • it to the end! A lot of people have different accent different pronunciation
  • different intonation so many times you hear this: "I could not understand that!"
  • just watch this guy from New York, trying to teach English guy how to speak with
  • New York accent! hey forget about it I could not understand that forget about
  • it get no R's forget about it I could not understand
  • Now change T's to D's forget about id! Id? would you say change
  • the T's to the D's? But not the last one! sometimes I get things wrong but I'm
  • still learning try this one here: get the hell out of here! No R's! get the hell

Description

Got Mercedes? The second video in this series. Must watch video for Mercedes-Benz owners, demo 8 more hidden features available in most Mercedes models over the past 10 - 20 years, full tutorial and explanation. This video is better than reading Mercedes owner manuals!

Some features in the Mercedes-Benz vehicles are really obscure and therefore rarely used. However they are extremely useful in everyday life, because everyone likes to simplify stuff and nobody likes complications.

This demonstration is based on some different models, but you have to check with your own car, to make sure if one of those functions is available in your particular car. Some features are optional so you have to test it out yourself.

How many features out of 8 did you already know about? What features should I demo in my upcoming videos? Please let me know, after you finish watching, in Comments section below.
