Instructions

For this setup to work, you must ensure that your Mercedes-Benz has AV input.

  1. Locate the AV input on your car. On the S Class, the input is in the glove box. In ML, GL, and R classes, the AV input may be located at the rear center console (rear entertained input).
  2. Connect the AV cables to the AV inputs and the HDMI2AV converter. Connect the yellow plug to the yellow port. Also, connect the white and red cables to the corresponding ports. Yellow plug in the video, white and red are audio. It is important to get HDMI in and AV out converter. Not AV2HDMI
  3. Connect AnyCast to the HDMI port of the HDMI2AV converter.
  4. Plug the cable on the AnyCast and HDMI converter and connect to a USB port. This will power up both devices.
  5. Press the button on the side of AnyCast to enable ScreenShare.
  6. On your Android phone, go to Settings > Share & Connect Screen Sharing (You can also use MirrorLink)
  7. Turn on ScreenSharing and pair with AnyCast.
  8. Wait for the phone to connect to AnyCast. It can take up to 1 minute.

DO NOT OPERATE OR GET DISTRACTED BY THE COMMAND WHEN DRIVING

To minimize distractions the video may cause, your Mercedes-Benz COMAND display may fade or turn off when the vehicle is in Drive or at speeds over 5 miles per hour.
