    Default Cool Hidden Features

    Just came across a cool hidden feature. Don't know how many of you knew about it. I certainly didn't.

    Have always wondered how you can activate the 360 degree camera without selecting reverse. There are times when you are parking and do not have to reverse but would like the 360 degree vision to avoid a high curb for example. Going through the motion of selecting reverse is tedious. The other option of going through the vehicle settings is even more tedious.

    Well, just discovered that if you press and hold the vehicle settings button the 360 degree camera will pop up.

    If anybody knows of any such features please let us know.

    Modern vehicles have lots of hidden features. A while ago, after I've travelled none stop for 3.5 hours, a message came up on my car's display telling me to take a break!

    And, did you?
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?

    That says a lot about your good attention span, mine comes up anywhere between 2-3 hours

    Other cool features

    - When you press and hold the air circulation button, all the windows close so you dont have to do both. So see a truck with lots of black smoke, and just press and hold in and it does everything.
    - I know many vehicles have this, but holding the lock and unlock button in, closes windows and opens them again to the same position.

    then the Merc mobile app that connects to your car also has plenty of useful features.
