The Mercedes-Benz Navigation System is powerful and easy to use. Using the system, you’ll receive turn-by-turn directions and customizable maps and settings to make your trips around Merced easier. Navigation is available through COMAND® — the brand-exclusive infotainment system. While most new vehicles include COMAND®, COMAND® navigation is optional for vehicles like the C-Class, GLA, and CLA. Read on to learn more about how the navigation system works inside a Mercedes-Benz!

How to Set a Destination

Set a destination or point of interest in or near Stockton in just a few steps:

When the Vehicle is Stationary:

  • Press the NAVI button on the dash or press the central controller and choose NAVI from the menu on the central display.
  • Rotate the controller and choose Destination.
  • Choose Address Entry (or From POIs) from the menu, then follow the prompts to input the full address.
  • Select the route you want.

When the Vehicle is in Motion:

  • Press the voice activation button on the steering wheel and say “Enter Destination.”
  • Speak the address aloud, then confirm or correct the destination.
  • If you need to correct the address, say “correct street” or “correct number” to do so.
  • You’ll receive turn-by-turn directions over the audio system, which is a safer alternative to watching the central display.

What Else Can You Do with the Navigation System?

  • Adjust Voice Prompts: Use the up/down arrows on the steering wheel to adjust the volume of the voice prompts — just as you would for the stereo.
  • Adjust Map Views: Choose a flat map, a birds-eye view map, or a 3D map to make it easier to see where you’re going and what to expect along the way.
  • Use SiriusXM® Traffic: Subscribe to SirusXM® Traffic for real-time updates on traffic conditions around Stanislaus or Mariposa.
