Driving out the door! Mercedes MB-3 Bluetooth

More and more cars are coming with adaptors to stream music and speak on the phone, through an inbuilt cable. But what if you have a beloved Mercedes and you’re not ready to upgrade? And who need cables when it can all be done wirelessly? The recently released ViseeO MB-3 Mercedes Bluetooth and iPod adaptor in Australia was met with a huge response. It sold out in the first week and continues to drive out the door! We’ve ordered in more, so you won’t miss out.

Built on the success of the popular MB-2 Bluetooth upgrade adaptor, the ViseeO engineer team is always looking for more functionality beyond a Bluetooth communication device. That’s why they’ve gone back to the drawing board and come up with a premium Bluetooth device that brings even better communication and entertainment experiences to your prestigious cockpit.

We’ve been asked why people should upgrade or purchase this nifty adaptor, so here are the reasons why!

1. MB-3 is equipped with the new CK5050+ Bluetooth module supplied by Parrot, the leading Bluetooth handsfree company worldwide. This module will bring you amazingly fast phonebook sync performance, excellent compatibility and brilliant sound. With more pairing device support you can now pair up to 4 phones with MB-3 and each pairing setting can carry up to 1000 phonebook number individually to gives you total of 4000 phonebook entries* for each MB-3.

2. Music streaming is No. 1 desired feature. As Mercedes UHI interface was originally designed for mono sound communication, it cannot carry stereo music to your console. The ViseeO team has come up a relatively easy solution for playing the external music in stereo sound via the built in FM transmitter. With 3 memory channels, the MB-3 allows you to broadcast the A2DP/iPod/iPhone/AUX-IN music to your car radio with near CD quality sound.

3. No drain: Have you experienced battery drain from using Bluetooth in the past? The MB-3 will charge an iPod or iPhone via the 5v dock cable, so you don’t compromise the battery life to listen to music or use the in-car handsfree. The adaptor includes a USB charging feature that allows you to charge your iPod/iPhone, phone, MP-3 player, and many other devices that can be charged via PC’s USB port.

4. Fully integrated: The MB-3 integrates with steering wheel buttons to give you full and easy access to all functions, right in front of you. The adaptor stores neatly in your armrest along with your iPhone or MP3 player. No messy cords or fiddling to find your favourite song – it’s all at your finger tips!

The recommended retail price is $549, but we have them for you at just $415Order today as these will sell out fast again and we have only got access to limited stock – click here to order and you’ll be listening to your favourite tracks next week!

Please note: the MB3 is for 2004 models onwards, if in any doubt give us a call to confirm if the MB3 will work with your Merc.

MB3 Mercedes Bluetooth Kit

LATEST NEWS FROM VISEEO – here is the latest news about the launch of this exciting product. Mr Mobile will have them in stock mid to late June, 2011.

MB-3, the latest product from ViseeO, is a totally redesigned Bluetooth upgrade adaptor for your Mercedes (UHI version). Build up on the success of the popular MB-2 Bluetooth upgrade adaptor, ViseeO engineer team has always been looking for more possibilities than just a Bluetooth communication device. That is why they have gone back to the drawing board and come up with a premium Bluetooth device that would bring even better communication and entertainment experiences to your prestigious cockpit.

To start with, MB-3 is equipped with the new CK5050+ Bluetooth module supplied from Parrot, the leading Bluetooth handsfree company worldwide. This particular module will bring you amazingly fast phonebook sync performance, excellent compatibility and brilliant sound. With more pairing device support you can now pair up to 4 phones with MB-3 and each pairing setting can carry up to 1000 phonebook number individually to gives you total of 4000 phonebook entries* for each MB-3.

During the past 2 years, ViseeO marketing team has been endeavoring to find out the most wanted features to be added to the MB-2 and A2DP music streaming has come up as the No.1 desired function. However, our engineers did not stop there and they have thought all kind of possibilities for playing music therefore, iPod/iPhone and AUX-IN have all been included into the MB-3’s main features.

As Mercedes UHI interface was originally designed for mono sound communication hence, it can not carry any stereo music to your console. ViseeO team has come up a relative easy solution for playing the external music in stereo sound which is via the FM transmitter. Every MB-3 has a built-in FM transmitter with 3 memory channel to allow you broadcasting the A2DP/iPod/iPhone/AUX-IN music to your car radio with near CD quality sound.

Our engineer team has also thought out the problem of battery life of your music and phone device during a long journey and has included a PC-like USB charging feature that allows you to charge your iPod/iPhone, phone, MP-3 player, and many other devices that can be charged via PC’s USB port.

As the functions on MB-3 get more complicated than before, it is important to ensure the smooth operation of the unit is possible, to do this our engineer has added the beautiful OLED display on the device to enable you an easier way to operate the unit. The standard wired remote control will enable you to perform simple music control function such as Play/Pause/Next/Previous songs. There is also an optional wireless remote control that will be able to allow you to perform the music function with no wire attached**.

*Depending on your Mercedes console, you can display either 1000 or 650 phonebook entries. CK5050+ can actually load 5000 entries per each paired phone however, due to the console limitation it will only display up either 1000 or 650 entries.

Major Features:

Compatible with Mercedes UHI interface
CK5050+ Bluetooth module
Super fast phonebook sync
Support iPod/iPhone music play
A2DP/AVRCP functions for wireless music playing
Integration with the steering wheel buttons

* Each MB-3 can actually receive up to 5000 entries per upload however Mercedes console has limited the number of entries to be displayed on its screen therefore depending on the console it can show either 1000 or 650 entries. With up to 4 devices can be paired therefore, each MB-3 can carry up to total of 4000 phonebook numbers.
** A2DP will only work with A2DP enable phones. Some phones may not have full AVRCP functions therefore, may not have the full music control (i.e. Play/Pause/Next/Previous Song). For instance Apple only support Play/Pause AVRCP control on their iPhone therefore, you will not be able to go to next or previous song via AVRCP.
***The charging port simulates PC-USB charging environment therefore, you must check whether your phone or music device can be charged via PC’s USB port before this function can be effective.
