|82.85 Cockplt management and data system (COMAND), general
The model 215 Cockpit Management and Data System (COMAND)
is virtually identical to the COMAND in model 220.
COMAND enables the following systems to be operated centrally and
- Integrated CD player
- Sound system
- Cellular telephone
The COMAND actuation/display control module (A40/3)
is the central component of the COMAND system.
Some functions can also be activated using the multifunction
steering wheel buttons. It should be noted that all button activations on the
multifunction steering wheel are initially read in by the instrument cluster (A1). The
instrument cluster (A1) combines the incoming button operations with the current menu
setting on the multifunction indicator (A1 p13) and sends appropriate CAN messages to the
COMAND actuation/display control module (A40/3).
