Mercedes-Benz to Offer New Universal Interface for Mobile Phones

March 26, 2003

According to CollisionWeek News, from June this year, Mercedes-Benz will be offering a new, fully integrated universal mobile phone interface which will allow a variety of mobile phone models to be connected to the on-board electronic network. In this way, according to CollisionWeek, drivers will be able to enjoy all the typical Mercedes convenience and safety features when using these phones, namely the hands-free function, telephone operation via the multifunction steering wheel and monitoring via the central display unit or the COMAND communication center (where specified).CollisionWeek further says that whereas these features were previously restricted to a single mobile phone model, the newly developed universal mobile phone interface (UHI) serves as a standard interface for phones by Nokia, Motorola and Siemens. The phone is connected to the universal interface in the fitted console with the aid of an adapter which is specific to the particular model of phone. Adapters can be supplied via Mercedes-Benz dealers and subsidiaries. The UHI controller complete with aerial, hands-free system and full networking can be fitted as an option on new Mercedes-Benz car models, according to CollisionWeek News.
