Captures defining moments.
If you love spectacular roads, why not use the existing camera technology in your Mercedes to film the highlights of your next road trip? To make your unique experiences truly memorable ones. Use the windscreen's built-in camera to capture breathtaking videos from your front-row seat – with an unobstructed view ahead and a stable image – and fill your car-travel diary with unique footage.
You can use the MBUX Dashcam software to film the trips in your car and save them as videos on a USB memory device. The videos have a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p) and a frame rate of up to 30 Hz. Your road speed and the time of day, recorded automatically, are embedded visibly in the videos. You can control the recording intuitively using the menu on the media display, the Touch Control buttons on the steering wheel or the touchpad in the centre console. Existing camera technology is used for the recording, so there's no need for any additional external equipment or cables other than a USB memory device. You can play back your footage directly on the media display once you have stopped the car or watch it on a tablet after transferring from your USB memory device.
