All I'm saying is... that with all the tech in these new cars I would have thought both to get it to change to KPH and French would be an obvious thing for it to do, when it does so may other things I'm not interested in.
I'll ignore the sarcasm as one always should
I'm now told it can but I couldn't find how, maybe cos I'm an old git!
Tim.... any pointer I spent ages trying to work out how.
All UK cars must show Kph and MPH...all the time. Does your 213 not do this?
My car can show mph or kmh on the speedo. But does not display both at the same time...but my car came from RoI where kmh is the norm and my speedo dial is different from the UK versions since the scale goes up to 260 whereas the UK version has a dual scale showing mph and kmh.
The dual scale is so good why did they do away with it?
You can change it in MMI light settings to "driving on the right" option. Interestingly, the lights come back automatically to left side driving when you're back to UK, you don't have to change them manually again.Same when I wanted to check if the (awesome) matrix auto LED lights needed switching over when on the continent. Couldn’t fathom it out. Nothing in the manual and finally found out online that slot beams don’t need any adjustment, immaterial of what side of the road you drive on. Should have known that right?

Didn't you go through all options in MMI and read manual when getting the car?
Never had a problem with starting ignition only, I usually do this first, setup everything and then start the car.
I'm sure it will be if it can be done, but my many attempts at finding it have proven to be fruitless, the trouble is they don't come with a good old fashioned handbook, everything is now online or, maybe I'm just thick.
Try the Mercedes-Guides on the Apple App Store - using this you can download the complete UK manuals including Comand but the interactive part of the App is much easier to use. Not sure if they have this App for Android.Did you find a copy of the GB manual to download, and if so, do you have a link? I could only find the USA version.
I dont think you can change the little kph at the bottom of the middle screen to mph, i have tried on my w204 and i couldnt get it to change anyway
