I have to back along way up a dead end serveral times a day to my house.

I am finding the automatic curb control of the near side mirror every time you go in reverse very tedious, as you then have to adjust the mirror manually.

Is there some way of stopping the programme?

Does it still do it if you set the selector switch to the driver's mirror?

On a 208 , if you leave the mirror selector on drivers mirror , it will not dip the passengers mirror when you select reverse.

Yes
Switching the mirror selector to the driver's side worked for my 12 year old CLK and my brand new C350, so probably works for all mercs with the curb view feature.

You could always set the 'kerb' position as the same position as you use for normal driving, hence it won't move when in reverse :)

Sorry to jump in on your thread Joyful, but I just wanted to ask if this is a standard feature or option?

My 2006 CLK does not automatically changed to kerb view when I select reverse, I would like it to do this. I have tried with the nearside mirror being the active switch and also the offside. Maybe something I need looking at through Star?

On many vehicles you can turn this feature off in the instrument cluster.

It is only available on cars with memory as it needs the memory bit to put it back where it was before it dipped
