New adapter adds Bluetooth streaming to MB vehicles
Mercedes has announced that it has a new media control called the Media interface Plus for its cars that will plug into a port in the glove box or console of its vehicles. The new interface allows the user to stream content from some smartphone apps like Pandora radio to the car's entertainment system.
The interface is called the Media interface Plus or MIP and adds Bluetooth connectivity to the vehicle for streaming audio from the iPhone and iPod or other devices. The MIP allows the steering wheel controls on Mercedes vehicles to control the track on the iPhone or iPod.
MB also offers a special cable that allows the driver to connect the iPhone or iPod to the car and show video content on the vehicle's LCD screen. That content can only be viewed when the car is stopped. I never get that, the passenger can watch while the car is in motion and content on the screen is no more distracting than a GPS map would be.
