My car is French spec & I am booked on a Caen to Portsmouth Brittany Ferries crossing next weekend.
In case of rough seas, I will need to turn off the motion / tow away alarm.
I have looked in the manual & online.
First suggestion was to look in Mercedes Me app but I do not have an option in my copy of the app.
Next was in my manual & said look in MBUX Settings - either under “Quick Access” or if not there, under ”Vehicle”
Again, no visible options.
Do all Gla cars have tow away alarm function?
 
On earlier models the 2 alarm disable buttons are on the o/h light.
 
Not on this version I am afraid.

On mine in the Mercedes Me App:

Access the App, select "More, look for the "Vehicle Alarm" Icon and Select, Scroll Down and you should see "Activate collision and tow-away detection"
 
UPDATE:
Contacted supplying dealer & it seems that my car does not have the tow away alarm.
First car cor a long time without it.
Thanks for replies 🙂
